ALPHA 7 - 120CM X 170CM

Adkins years of experience in manufacturing large format heat presses has enabled us to utilise this knowledge and create the excellent Alpha range. Built to exacting standards, the Alpha presses are built to endure even the most demanding installations.

This model is largest in the Alpha 7 range and has twin, reciprocating tables and a bed size of 120 x 170cm and is a pneumatically operated press. The Alpha 7 series boasts an impressive range of features including:

- PLC control system.
- Cartridge based, replaceable heating elements.
- Twin button control system ensures the operators hands are clear of the pressing area.
- Manual or automatic operating modes with auto open release system.
- Heat plate will not operate until directly aligned over the lower bed.
- Fully adjustable temperature and pressure control.
- Electronic countdown timer.
- Emergency stop button that shuts off machine operation.
- Inbuilt thermal cut out on the heating element shuts off power to heating element should the temperature exceed 235°C +/- 15°C (455°F +/-27°F).

The twin reciprocating sliding lower beds enables the operator to be preparing the next item to be pressed, whilst the first bed is being pressed, therefore maximising productivity.

Ideally suited for printing garments and large panels such as Sportswear, Flags, Upholstery Materials and Soft / Hard signage applications.

The pneumatic operation means that you can easily replicate exact pressure with every press cycle and operator fatigue is kept to a minimum, resulting in improved operator output and reducing mistakes due to fatigue.

The Alpha 7 range has an innovative cartridge based heating element that replaces the older single continuous cast in aluminium style element. The benefit of the cartridge system is that it has multiple, individually replaceable elements, allowing replacement of just a single cartridge should the need arise.

The operator controls the pressure via a simple, fully adjustable air pressure gauge and locking air pressure control. Fully adjustable time and temperature are set via the controller and the LED display features a countdown timer.

Compliance: Manufactured and tested to comply with EC safety regulations. CE labelled.

Supplied with:

- 12 months warranty (machine and heating element)
- Installation and instruction manuals including full operating and safety instructions, electrical wiring diagrams, exploded diagram and parts list.
- Service and spare part support.

Requires: Compressed air supply max: 6 bar (Not Included).

Ideal for use with flex, flock, laser, sublimation, bonding, laminating, reactivation and DTG.


Cartridge Based Heating Element

An innovative cartridge based heating element means it is possible replace individual sections of the heating element, should the need arise.

Twin Reciprocating Lower Tables

The operator loads the machine via the sliding lower table. Once loaded the operator sends the loaded bed into the press and commences the pressing cycle. The second bed slides out into the loading position and enables the operator to commence preparing the next item to be pressed, whilst the first bed is being pressed.

Pneumatic Operation

The Alpha 7 is pneumatically operated which allows it to achieve a maximum of 6-bar pressure. This makes it ideal for all forms of pressing work even in the most demanding high pressure environments. The pneumatic operation drastically reduces operator fatigue.
