Insta Model 418

Curved Platens Make Printing on Hats a Breeze.

Insta’s Model 418 Digital Cap Press is a terrific multi-purpose heat press.  Its curved platens are perfectly molded to mirror the curves of a hat & are designed to apply heat transfers onto cap brims & bills.  The 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 heat press perfect for use in a home or retail environment.

Quality You Can Count On.

The Model 418 has been strategically designed to generate & 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.  A successful heat transfer application requires 3 key elements to work in tandem– time, temperature & pressure.  The Model 418 has mastered those elements and gets the job done every time.
