The Digital Knight clamshell heat presses feature a state-of-the-art
control system and heavy-duty solid steel welded framework. These machines
boasts a lifetime warranty on the heat platen, and an unprecedented 3-year
warranty on the heat-control electronics. The heat platens use SuperCoil-Microwinding™
heater technology, a system of embedded heater windings that wind tightly
and closely together throughout the entire platen for extremely even heat,
fast recovery & fast heat up times.
The efficient, high production, twin loading cap press
costs much less than two individual cap presses and allows the operator to just
about double output. This is a great press for high volume output. It features
the same sophisticated digital control package as all Knight presses.

access to the platen. Gas spring hydraulic lifters provide a smooth, hands free
opening action of the heater. The Digital Knight controller utilizes an easy
to read oversized-digit LCD display to show time and temperature simultaneously,
and the temperature readout is accurate within +-2°. The controller also features
a digital height/pressure gauge for displaying current height settings. The
operator can use the 70 programmable presets for saving common application settings
of Temp/Time/Pressure, ensuring consistent, repeatable results for all applications.
