DC16 14x16

If you want versatility and efficiency, the Digital Combo is your heat press.

Because of the elevated upper and lower platens, this powerful dynamo provides features, advantages and benefits, not found in any other press.Available in 14"x16", this fully digital swing-away heat press boasts all of the digital features of the bigger Digital Knight swing away heat presses.This includes Digital Temperature, Time and a Digital Pressure/Height gauge, as well as programmable presents, user definable alarms and a host of other digital features.As with all Knight swing away heat presses, the press construction is a solid steel welded framework, with SuperCoil-Microwinding™ heater technology. It carries the same warranties as the Digital Knight line of presses (lifetime on the heater element, three years on the electronics and a one year general parts and labor warranty on the rest of the press). However, the very popular success of the Digital Combo lies in its almost instantly interchangeable system of optional heat platens and tables and the advantages of its elevated upper and lower platens.

Follow along with us, as we introduce you to these features and explain how they can benefit you. As we do with all the products that we provide, we will focus on the practical, not the theoretical.

First, and foremost, is the fact that even without adding any optional attachments, the Digital Combo is a very versatile and efficient heat press.

  • The 14"x16" heating area is not only big enough to do most single transfer jobs but it is also big enough to do simultaneous multiples of smaller items.

  • The lower platen is elevated about 9". This is very handy when transferring to thick, bulky items, like heavy jackets. Sleeves, shoulder pads and collars drape over and down. This helps keep the garment flat and makes transferring easier.

  • There is about 8" of free space under the lower platen, to the support post (Don't worry about its strength. It is plasma cut steel!). This is a great benefit when transferring an image to the front and back of most garments. Pull your garment over the platen to do one side, and then reverse it, to do the other side.

Optional Attachements for the DC16

There are a great number of "flat" items that can be decorated (T-shirts, mouse pads, ceramic tiles, tote bags, puzzles and more) and this is the majority of the work, for most.

Many, however, need the benefit of being able to decorate other types of items, without the expense of buying completely separate heat presses. Optional attachments for the Digital Combo heat presses turn it into a cap press, plate press, etc. for less than half the price of a separate press.

Not only that, the press, with the attachment, is nearly as effective and efficient as having a separate press.


Cap Attachment for the DC16

Caps are flawlessly printed with a curved heater block and curved bottom form with a special cap-holding device (the back of the cap is held by the silver piece at the base). Two other sizes of bottom forms are also available.

The cap attachment, in particular, is a very useful attachment for many of our customers, especially if they are offering T-shirts.

The low cost of the attachment helps preserve capital, while providing the ability to imprint caps. The attachment is still useful, when volume later builds up, and you buy a separate cap press.

With help, you can now get finished in half the time.

Memo Cube Attachment for the DC16

Memo cubes are properly clamped and pressed in the cube fixture. Images are successfully pressed around the cubes' sides for a continuous image wrap.

This is an interesting attachment and the imprinting is usually done as a heat transfer, on paper cubes.

Not a lot of our customers get this attachment, but the ones who do, seem well satisfied.

However, be aware that printing on 3-4 sides of a memo cube is fairly labor-intensive.

Some memo cubes are done with inkjet sublimation (see

Mug Attachment for the DC16

The full wrap mug attachment for the Digital Combo uses the same exact super-robust heater band & pressure adjustment as the DK3.

All standard cylindrical sublimatable items can be pressed on the Full Wrap Mug Attachment.

The Digital Combo press controls the temperature and serves as a timer for this instant plug-in attachment.

Plate Attachment for the DC16

The small upper platen shown features a circular heating element on the under-side. This circular heating element fits inside the flat portion of the plate. Also included is a metal template tray and rubber pad (under the plate) for centering the plate on the lower platen.

The attachment comes in 4.5" and 5.5" versions. We suggest getting the 4.5" version. The 5.5" version is for a larger plate, which is sometimes difficult to find.

Bottom Heated Platen for DC16

Bottom heated platen for the DC16

It is very unlikely that the average business will ever need bottom heat on their press. No standard heat transfers, sublimation transfers, heat applied vinyl cut letters or flock lettering ever needs bottom heat.

A bottom-heated press is most often used in laboratories and commercial industry to bond dissimilar materials.

Example - One of our clients needed this press to cure the bonding agent holding two different types of metals together. Each metal required a different heat, to make the bonding agent between the two metals cure correctly.

The specs and information about this press is exactly the same as for the standard Digital Combo heat press. The only difference is that this press has bottom heat.
