Monti Antonio Piece to Piece Heat PressesSublimate
Monti Antonio piece to piece heat presses can process a range of dye sub products including metal prints, double sided garments like leggings and sportswear, high-pile polyester for blankets and rugs, and more.
Piece to piece heat presses use flat plates as opposed to the drums seen in dye sub calenders. Most of the piece to piece models have two beds that can be operated in tandem. While one print is being sublimated on the first bed, the operator loads the next print onto the second bed. As the first one comes out, the second one goes in. The operator offloads the first bed and gets it ready for a third print, and so on.
Some models may also be outfitted with a vacuum to process high-pile material for custom printed rugs or blankets. Instead of ink fixing to the topmost fibers, the suction allows the pigment to penetrate all the way through the material.
