The HIX Swingman Hobby Lite Heat Press was designed for hobbyists, schools, artists, social organizations, small, shops, etc.—who are looking for a great heat price at a value price.
The machine comes with a list of high-quality features as well as performance grades.
Before you can swipe out that credit card to order this heat press, I’d recommend you to read my in-depth, unbiased review below to see if this HIX Swingman machine is worth it not.
In the review, we’ll cover the KEY features and benefits the unit comes with and its upsides and downsides.
Let’s get into the details…
Features and Benefits:
This is the biggest advantage you’ll have get when using this machine—having digitally controlled temperature (or heat, if you like).
This is unlike in the other machine where guesswork is involved when setting the transfer temperature.
For this unit, you’ll just need to key in the desired temperature on the LCD screen and then turn on the press to begin the transfer process. As you already know, transferring an image with accurate temperature translates into a more appealing, long-lasting transfer.
Did I mention that the temperature range of this machine runs from 0 degrees all the way up to 400 degrees F?
Incredibly Easy to Use
The machine comes with a swing-away design. This means that it doesn’t come near your hands during operation and you operate it comfortably from practically any position.
It also comes with a space that helps keep the head from moving too far whenever you swung it back to the left to layout or remove the t-shirt.
Another feature that makes it easy to operate involves the heat indicating light. This eliminates the need for a temperature gauge; you simply dial the desired transfer temperature and then turn on your machine. When the machine reaches the set height, the light will go off to alert you to remove the substrate.
Compact, Lightweight, and Portable Design
Another area that makes this machine suitable for homes, school, and small businesses is the fact that it has a smaller, lightweight design.
It’s exact dimensions and weight are W 17” x H 14” x D 20” and 19 lbs. (8.5 kg). Such a small overall size makes this machine easy to tuck under your arm so that you can easily move it from place to place. If you've got a mobile retail business, you’ll absolutely love this feature.
If you plan to use it at your home and have limited space (which is the case for most apartments nowadays), you’ll love this feature.
As you’d expect of any top-quality, modern machine, this HIX Swingman Hobby Lite Heat Press allows you to transfer images, letters, characters, etc., onto a wide range of substrates.
Some of the items you can successfully transfer your designs onto using this machine include ceramics, plaques, mouse pads, coasters, shirts, to name but a few.
Keep in mind that it comes with a large enough working surface (measuring 9″ x 12″) to enable you to work on both small and large items without any problems.
Hopefully, you have seen the key features and functions that this machine comes with.
Like most of the top-rated models, you’ll find on the market today, this machine supports versatile applications, where it allows you to transfer onto various items. It’s extremely easy to use and comes fully assembled—making it suitable for all beginners who have never used a heat press before.
If you’ve limited space or operate a mobile tee printing business, you’ll appreciate the lightweight and portable nature of this machine.
Probably the BEST part that makes this machine a favorite for many is the fact that it offers you all the high-end features at a reasonably low price.
On top of all this, the manufacturer offers you a one-year general warranty (plus one-year heating element warrant) as an assurance of the products quality and reliability.
