The recently introduced 550 series Tunnel heat press from Printa Systems features what the company describes as a unique, ultra-user-friendly design. It uses a tunnel into which a platen slides to protect operators from exposure to high temperatures. Printa says the Tunnel takes up much less space than traditional swing-away presses and notes that the unit is also lighter. The heat press is available with 16 x 16-in. and 16 x 20-in. (406 x 406-mm and 406 x 508-mm) platen sizes. Pressure is set manually. Printa Systems, 127 10th St. S., Kirkland, WA 98033, 425-828-8933, Web: www.printa.com.
