Heat Press Machine: Electric Heated Vs. Oil Heated

Heat Press Machine: Electric Heated Vs. Oil Heated

A heat press machine presses fabrics, non-curved objects, and pieces such as mouse pads or doormats, as large as the heat platen and table allows. This mahine is available in two heating element configurations in the market—electric heated and oil heated. Each one has its own merits. Today’s article is going to share which kind of machine is suitable for your business?

Oil heated rotary calender transfer machines are recommended for use in large production. The cost of an oil heat press is higher than an electric of a similar drum size, so it’s not a necessary expense to make when pairing speed with most digital equipment.

Smaller oil drums, for example those of eight inches in diameter, contain less than two cubic feet of oil but still require a longer heat up and cool down than an electric press of even larger dimensions, which turns into higher power consumption.
( Note: Drum diameters vary from eight up to 55 inches and larger. The speed of heat transfer calender is dictated by the size of the drum and consistency of the heating element. The larger the drum diameter, the faster production speeds can be achieved.)

On the other end, oil configurations provide consistency, a variety of size options, efficiency, and the ability to better handle thicker materials.
