Insta Graphic Model 158 Heatpress

Ideal for Heat Transfer Application and Digital Direct-to-Garment Printing

The Insta 158 Digital Auto Release Digi-Press® offers one of the major benefits of an automatic machine – the auto-open feature – with the lightweight, ergonomic design of a manual clamshell heat press. The Insta 158 meets the demands of today™s busy retail environment and is also a practical solution to use as a pre- and post-curing agent for the expanding digital direct-to-garment marketplace. This digital clamshell heat press delivers consistent temperature and results all day long.


Following in the tradition of Insta™s reputation for quality, the Insta 158 15×20 clamshell heat press maintains an ergonomic, compact style and boasts a time saving auto-release feature. Once the operator closes the machine, and the preset time has elapsed, the Insta 158 automatically opens. This allows the operator to maximize his or her time while the transfer is dwelling, without worrying about burning the substrate.

Auto Open With the use of a strategically placed electromagnet, the upper platen automatically releases at the end of the time cycle, without the use of an air compressor.

Cast-In Heating Element The tubular heating element is cast into the aluminum upper platen, heating the metal from within. The element is coiled throughout the upper platen to provide even circulation of heat across the platen.

Distribution of Pressure The pressure source is strategically placed over the center of the upper platen and uses struts to drive pressure out to all corners. The result is an even and heavy duty distribution of pressure that is unmatched by other heat presses in the market today.
