How to use the 3D vacuum press with a plate


Watch this video to learn how to use the 3D vacuum heat press with a plate Unpack your 3D heat press. Then start by opening the lid and adding the vacuum holder and the silicone vacuum pipe as indicated. Turn on your 3D vacuum heat press. On the control panel, press the power button to turn on the press. Press the temperature button until the temperature starts flashing and start adjusting the temperature by pressing and holding the plus button until the temperature is 190 degrees Celsius. Press the temperature button again to save the value. The temperature should stop flashing. Press the Time Setting button until the time starts flashing and then press and hold the plus or minus button to the desired time of 12 minutes. Press the Time Setting button again to save the value. The time should stop flashing. Press the Heating button twice until both the red heating element indicators are on as indicated. This will start the pre-heating of the heat press to the desired temperature. While the heat press is pre-heating, prepare your artwork by cutting it close enough to the print so that you still have a white border around it. Place the artwork with the correct alignment onto the plate and secure it with heat tape. Please take care as the heat press is hot and you could be injured if you touch any hot surface. Once the heat press is at the desired temperature, put on the supplied gloves to prevent burning when you open the press. Open the heat press and open the vacuum support, and place the plate in the middle of the tray. Then, close the vacuum tray and the lid quickly to prevent heat loss. Press the Vacuum button to start the vacuum. You will see the silicone bladder shrinking as the vacuum increases. Close the lid and press the Timing button to start the countdown timer. Once the timer has reached zero, press the Timing button to stop the timing cycle. Remember to put on your gloves. Then open the heat press and open the vacuum holder. Remove the plate. While the plate is still hot, remove the print from the plate and set it aside to cool down. Once cooled down you can see the final result as desired. You can only press one plate at a time. You have now learned how to use the 3D vacuum heat press for a plate. Thank you for watching this video. Please feel free to watch all our other videos. Happy sublimating.
