Sublimation Heat Presses

George Knight Sublimation Presses

Geo Knight Logo

Since 1885, George Knight has been building long-lasting, commercial-grade equipment right here in the US, and they have models to fit practically any need from hobbies to industrial manufacturing.

Geo Knight Coils

Geo Knight uses a heat platen with SuperCoil-Microwinding heater technology, a system of embedded heater windings that wind tightly and closely together throughout the entire platen for extremely even heat, fast recovery & fast heat up times.

Geo Knight Controls

Their controller utilizes an easy to read oversized-digit LCD display to show time and temperature simultaneously, and the temperature readout is accurate within +-2°. The controller also features a digital height/pressure gauge for displaying current height settings. The operator can use the 70 programmable presets for saving common application settings of Temp/Time/Pressure, ensuring consistent, repeatable results for all applications.

Features for many popular Geo Knight sublimation heat press models include:

  • Fully digital temperature control 32° - 600° range
  • Automatic digital timers & back-lit displays
  • Digital Pressure Bar Graph
  • 70 Programmable presets
  • Accurate temperature readout in °C or °F
  • Teflon-coated 3/4" thick heat platen
  • Lifetime warranty on heat platen

The frame support allows operators to slide shirts over the table with complete drape space around and underneath the loading area. Interchangeable bottom tables for smaller pressing areas are available. This press is idea for environments with space limitations, and for users who need more portability and mobility than the over-weight swingaway presses.
