1550PM Dual-Platen Heat Transfer Printing Press

1550PM Dual-Platen Heat Transfer Printing Press

The A.I.T. 1550PM is a two-button close, dual-platen heat transfer printing press designed for high productivity with materials ranging from soft T-shirts to hard ceramic tiles. The perfectly balanced heated head is easily moved between platens. A two-button close insures maximum operator safety. The head automatically raises at the end of the pre-set dwell time. Pressure and closing of the head is pneumatically controlled, thereby reducing operator fatigue and maximizing production.

Optional double heating makes this an ideal machine for printing rigid substrates including ceramic tiles. Standard platen size is 16'' x 20''. Optional 20'' x 24'' version also available.


  • Digital Temperature Control
  • Digital Timer & Piece Counter
  • Adjustable Pneumatic Pressure
  • Operation by Two-Button Close
  • 16” x 20” heated platen with swing-away head for easy access to the entire surface and to protect the operator from heat.
  • Interchangeable top and bottom platens are available in sizes from 4' x 4' to 20' x 24'.
  • Quick disconnect design allows both platens to be changed in less than 5 minutes.
  • Pressure system generates an applied force of 22 psi across the entire 16' x 20' platen. Incoming air pressure 80-100 psi. This high pressure system provides precise registration of small text and deep penetration of ink into rigid substrates.
  • The exclusive AIT Mica Heat Matte ensures quick recovery and consistent operating temperatures across the entire surface of the heated platen. The AIT Mica Heat Matte is superior to tubular cal rod heating elements found in low-end heat presses. The matte has 100% contact with the platen to eliminate hot and cold spots, and maintain operating temperature within 1 to 2 degrees throughout continuous operation of the press.
  • Digital temperature and time controls with precise settings to 0.1 degrees/seconds
  • Safety features include swing-away head and two-button close


  • Interchangeable platens
  • Double heating with three independent temperature controllers
  • Custom steel stand
  • Laser light positioning system
