  • The Hot Glass Press(HGP) was developed by HOT PRESS and incorporates their unique high technology transparent glass heating system.
  • Based on unique and proven technology, the Hot Glass Vacuum Press, or quite simply ‘The Hot Press’ as it is fondly and almost universally known, sets the standard for excellence in all areas of heat mounting and lamination. Regarded by many as the ‘industry standard’ machine for picture framers, these machines are also commonly used by restorers and professional print finishers worldwide
  • Hot Presses can be found in many different working environments such as:
    • Picture Framing workshop & Galleries
    • Photographers
    • Digital canvas printers
    • Photo Laboratories
    • Museums
    • Art Restorers
    • Display Houses
    • Educational Institutions

Automatic Electronic Timer With manual override switch

FEATURES

  • The HOT PRESS has been constantly evolving over the past twenty years and represents the most convenient and efficient way of hot mounting in the modern framing workshop.
  • The Hot Press is capable of handling a wide range of presentation materials, from white display board, foam centred board and MDF to photographs, art prints, inkjet canvases and delicate fabrics.
  • No great physical strength is required to operate the machine and all types of work can be processed with ease. Additionally the Hot Press can be filled with multiple projects, thus saving time and energy
  • The Hot Press will efficiently process 25mm thick MDF on one side of the bed, whilst simultaneously processing 1mm card on the other.
  • The transparent top panel of the Hot Press allows work to be viewed throughout most standard dry mounting procedures.

HEATING SYSTEM

  • The unique Hot Press heating system is widely acknowledged as the best press heating system in the world.
  • By passing electricity across a special conductive coating on a sheet of toughened glass, a very even heat is created.
  • This heat is monitored several times every second by a special sensor and can be controlled to within 2 ºc.
  • The use of a glass platen, rather than a metal one, leads to fast warm up times, from room temperature to working temperature and a very even distribution of heat across its surface.
  • This eliminates the need for ‘press watching’ and increases productivity in the workshop. The adjustable temperature control allows all kinds of artwork to be dry mounted, even those that may be damaged by heat.
  • The versatile temperature controller allows temperatures from 0 ºc to 115 ºc to be set on the machine.
  • Cold operation of the Hot Press, by turning the temperature down, also means the machine can be used with wet adhesives for low-value jobs.

TIMING SYSTEM

  • The Hot Press comes with a built-in programmable process timer, so a time can be set and the timer started, leaving the operator free to prepare the next job.
  • When processing large volumes of work, the programmable timer can be set to the minimum time required for each batch of work, again maximising productivity.
  • The timer has two different and distinct modes of operation.
  • The AUTO setting allows for timed operation and the MANUAL setting allows the flexibility to set the machine running .

PRESSURE SYSTEM

  • Hot Presses are supplied with their own dedicated vacuum pump. These units require no oiling, but they will collect moisture from damp artwork and boards
  • The variable pressure control ensures the right pressure is set for each individual job and minimises even heavy creases and wrinkles, whilst ensuring that delicate items such as foam board and embossed prints are not crushed.

JETMOUNTER TM 26 MOTORIZED TABLE TOP LAMINATOR

JetMounters™ are designed to be easy to operate whilst producing work to the highest professional standards. The JM26 and JM34 are designed for mounting and laminating inkjet outputs and can handle all types of flat artwork, from photographs and paper posters to delicate plastics and vinyls. They are also ideal for processing most board stock, from simple card to MDF and Masonite. These smaller, motorised tabletop laminators are operated by foot switch, leaving both hands free to handle the work being processed.

  • Exclusive to the JetMounter range:
    • Siliconised rollers
    • New higher 25mm opening height

FEATURES

  • JetMounters™ are designed to be operated on any desk or work bench and are light-weight for easy storing.
  • For maximum versatility the JetMounters™ are fitted with variable height adjusters. From the thinnest graphic to the thickest panel it is simple to set up your JetMounter™ to use the right amount of pressure across your work
  • Though JetMounters™ are designed to feed your work through from the front to the back, they have a useful reverse operation switch that allows for accurate positioning of precision jobs.
  • For new laminator users the variable speed control is a great feature which allows you to build your confidence by using the machine at slower speeds. As your expertise grows you can move to faster speeds and the top speed will save you time and money.
  • Safety in the workshop is vital and the JetMounter™ range of laminators use ‘magic eye’ technology to stop the laminator when a possible obstruction enters the rollers.
  • Additionally, emergency stop buttons and reset procedures ensure safe working conditions for operators.
  • JetMounters™ can be set to run automatically for the continuous feed of boards or can be set for foot switch operation.

Our custom built Press stands are constructed of heavy gauge steel and designed to hold your press safely and securely.

FEATURES

  • Whilst some people choose to build their own press bench, our press stands can be modified, with a little ingenuity. By adding a thick MDF or similar sheet to the bracing cross members, a very handy shelf can be constructed. By attaching steel cups to the side bars, rolls can be supported on cross poles too.

CUTTING MATS

24” x 35”

40” x 60”

Unlike many ‘hobby grade’ cutting mats, our industrial grade mats feature a tri-layered, self-healing surface.

FEATURES

which is designed to offer a clean, smooth and flat cutting space. They come in a range of sizes and are ideal for covering all of your work benches. They feature an anti-slip surface and help keep cutting tools and piercing tools sharp. They are also double-sided, for extra longevity. Only our smallest cutting mat has any gridlines, as most professionals prefer to work without them.

  • CODE NO. A2236

PIERCING TOOL

5 wheels 4.5” / 114 mm wide

These precision engineered rollers are specially designed to perforate heat activated mount films and PVC heatseal films, to allow air to pass through them during processing in a Hot Press.

FEATURES

  • Though most of our films now come pre-pierced as standard, both clear and white drymount film require hand perforation, as does our very thick canvastex heatseal.
  • The piercing tool has hundreds of very sharp spikes that are used to create the pin sized holes required for air to escape during the mounting and laminating process.
  • CODE NO. A2241

HOTPRESS FILM DISPENSER

Hot press film dispenser is designed to be fitted either on hot press stand or can be mounted on wall

FEATURES

  • The best way to store our films is in an upright position.
  • The dispenser is a safe and convenient which can hold up to 6 rolls of Hot Press laminating films, mounting adhesives.
  • CODE NO. A2208

VACUFOAM

2700mm x1600 mm x 5mm (106” x 63” x 5mm) Full sheet

A 5mm thick foam used to cover heatseal laminates during pressing.

FEATURES

  • This foam is only suitable for use in vacuum presses.

PLEASE NOTE : It is always advisable to pre-treat a new sheet before using it on any work. All foam contains fire retardants and these activate when the foam in initially heated.New foam needs to be heat conditioned in the press under pressure for 20mins atleast 3 times to cook it into flat shape . Failure to condition your foam can lead to invisible memory marks being embedded onto the foam’s surface. These can then show up on subsequent jobs as ghost marks. If you would like more information on preventing this please feel free to contact us.
