Geo Knight Digital Knight DK16A Auto Release 14″x16” Clamshell Heat Press


Introducing the Geo Knight Digital Knight DK16A Auto Release 14″x16” Clamshell Heat Press – a powerful and innovative addition to your heat transfer printing setup. This version of the DK16 clamshell press features an AUTO-RELEASE “Pop-Up” technology, elevating your printing experience to a semi-automatic level without the need for a compressor.

The DK16A is equipped with an Auto-Release feature that mimics air-operated presses. Simply close the press as you normally would, and at the end of the digital timing cycle, the press releases automatically. This advanced upgrade also includes the “HOVER” function, allowing the press to hover over the work when the handle is lowered without fully clamping the machine – a useful feature for curing purposes.

This 14×16 clamshell heat press opens wide for full access to the lower bottom table. Notably, the back of the heat platen raises above and away from the bottom table, providing better access compared to other clamshell presses. The frame support enables operators to effortlessly slide shirts over the table, ensuring complete drape space around and underneath the loading area. Interchangeable bottom tables are available for those with smaller pressing needs.
