Curved Platens Make Printing on Hats a Breeze.

The Insta 418 Digital Cap Heat Press is a terrific multi-purpose heat press. Its curved platens are perfectly molded to mirror the curves of a hat and are designed to apply heat transfers onto cap brims and bills. Although it was originally designed as a heat press machine for hats, the Insta 418 has also proven to be an effective tool for printing logos and back-neck labels onto flat garments. Its portable, compact design and quiet operation make this press perfect for use in a home or retail environment.

Reliable, Consistent Quality

The Insta 418 hat heat press has been strategically designed to bring about and evenly distribute tremendous pressure throughout the entire platen. And, its cast-in tubular heating element heats the metal from within, which produces constant and long-lasting heat. Successful heat transfer applications require perfect time, temperature and pressure – 3 key components needed to work together. The Insta 418 has mastered those elements and gets the job done every time.

  • 4.5”x6.75” upper platen and 3.25”x6.75” lower platen

  • Portable, compact design
  • Made in the USA.

Insta Design Advantages.

Central Pressure Source The pressure source is strategically placed over the center of the upper platen and uses struts to drive that pressure out to all corners. The result is an even and heavy duty distribution of pressure that is unmatched by other heat presses in the market today.

Cast-In Heating Element The tubular heating element is cast into the aluminum upper platen, heating the metal from within. The element is coiled throughout the upper platen to provide a reliable and even circulation of heat out to all corners.

Integrated digital controller Controls for time, temperature (Fahrenheit or Centigrade) & auto-off.

Operator Benefits.

Portable and Compact easy to move & locate in small spaces.

Cap Hold Down holds the cap in place & keeps the body of the hat taut, for hassle-free application.

Interchangeable Larger Platen 4.5”x6.75” lower accessory platen can be purchased and easily snapped into place for printing on hats with larger brims.

Solid as a Rock Construction.

Best possible return on your investment! Machines made from cast metal are considered to be the highest quality and are strong enough to withstand heavy use without warping or bending. The Insta 418 is extremely durable and, if cared for properly, can last for many years to come. Step up to an Insta – you’ll be glad you did!.
