Did you know you can prolong the life of your Insta heat press machine by following these simple maintenance tips?

  • Always keep your machine in a safe/clean environment.
  • Do not increase the pressure above the recommended manufacturer settings.
  • Remember, thicker substrates mean the actual applied pressure is higher than what you have set the press to.
  • Periodically grease the machine to keep it working smoothly and efficiently.
  • Clean the upper heating element weekly with mineral spirits when the platen is cool.
  • When it becomes necessary, replace worn out parts with the manufacturer’s recommended parts.
  • Last but not least, clean the machine and the surrounding fittings regularly since they can accumulate excess grease.

Here’s to another 20 years of happy printing!
