ADZON Brother Distributer QLD

Information Adzon - Tuesday, September 22, 2015

As an introductory offer, Adzon is offering savings on the Brother Next Generation Garment Printer GT-381.

Adam Bandiera, founding director of Adzon is the exclusive distributer of the GT-381 printer for QLD. After working hands on in the printing and textiles industry for over 10 years and receiving industry acclaim for his innovative business concepts, Adam is always on the look out for new technology to keep his industry progressing.

The Brother GT3 series has a modular construction using One Pass technology, allowing users to print white under base and colour simultaneously, allowing for a faster turnaround time.

This Young Hearts design (below) was made by a young graphic artist on the Gold Coast, the artwork and font are all original and the t-shirt took less than 2 minutes to print.
"The traditional method of screen printing can be time consuming and infinitely more costly, now my clients are able to turn around an order of up to 200 large full-colour prints on black in one day", said Adam.
Screen printer Jamie Thompson has been in the industry for over 11 years with his clothing brand Proscreen. In January, Jamie boosted his business with a GT-381 with the main goal to increase print speed, without compromising the quality of the work.
All designs can be printed directly without RIP software, while keeping designs on the system makes reprints and repeat orders simple, a feature that is particularly beneficial for small teams and family owned businesses.

ADZON HIX distributer NZ and Australia

Information Adzon - Tuesday, September 22, 2015

Adzon is an official distributer for the popular US based HIX Corporation, supplying the Clamshell Heat Presses; HT-400, HT-600, S-450, and S-630, and the HIX Specialty Presses; B-250 and FH-3-000, around Australia and New Zealand.

HIX Corporation has made some dramatic changes to the Clampshell units, making them a staple of commercial heat pressing operations. Starting with the touch screen technology featured on all the clamshell presses, the machines are now even better equipped to handle high-turnover. Adjustable up to 999 seconds, the screens show time countdown on readout, beeps after elapsed time, and resets when the handle is raised. The calibrated digital temperature control is adjustable up to 450°F (232°C) and displays the current temperature. 

HIX recommended start-up machines, Clampshell Press HT-400 and HT-600, both offer easy operation and quality impressions from edge to edge. For the growing shop that is ready to move up and support higher demand, Adzon offers the Clampshell HIX S-450. 

The HIX specialty press HIX B-250 is a lightweight hat press that is portable enough to bring to special events or shows. The transfer hold down blanket ensures transfers don’t shift. 

The HIX Specialty Press FH-3000 is for those who want the ability to create transfers onto difficult items such as shirt pockets, sleeves, cuffs, collars, bags, aprons, name badges, tiles, gloves, pockets, tote bags, luggage, golf bag tags, gloves and even watch faces. As an added bonus, the FH-3000 only draws a maximum of 4 amps to maintain temperature. This means less energy and reduced electric bills by about 66% (compared to a standard 15” x15” press).

Clamshell Presses 

HT-400 Clamshell Press 

The graphics industry calls this machine “The Workhorse” for good reason – the HIX HT-400 Clamshell Press is rugged, durable, and made to perform. A must-have for any serious start-up business, the HIX HT-400 has earned respect for its numerous capabilities and reliability. With over 100,000 units sold throughout the world, this machine is regarded as an industry standard. Many customers have used this heat press for over 30 years of worry-free service. If you’re looking for high production capabilities, this is the heat press you need!

HT-600 Clamshell Press

The HIX HT-600 Clamshell Press ensures that your larger heat transfer impressions are perfect from edge to edge. With a larger 16” x 20” platen surface, you’ll be capable of handing those transfers that require more surface area.

Built with the same features and performance characteristics as the HT-400, the HT-600 has an increased heat platen (16″x20″) that can apply even pressure on all types of transfers, even on items up to ½-inch thick. The floating lower platen helps provide even pressure on thicker items, no matter were it’s applied.

S-450 Clamshell Press

Close the lid and walk away. Set up another job, or grab a soda. With the HIX S-450 Auto Release Heat Transfer machine, you have worry-free operation. When the job is finished, the clamshell lid pops open and stops the heat transfer process – but the upper platen stays hot and set to your pre-set temperature. It’s ready to work when you are!

Hands-free opening saves time and effort, allowing the operator to apply more transfers in a shift with less effort than a traditional heat transfer press. Direct-To-Garment applications are also a large driving force in the success of the auto-open feature. This allows you the freedom of loading your printer while the last print is curing, eliminating any risk of scorching or compromising transfer quality due to overheating.

S-650 Clamshell Press

The S-650 utilizes an electronically activated mechanical latch release mechanism with a gas shock assist to help enhance and support your operations. This helps to reduce fatigue and increase productivity. Direct-To-Garment applications are also a large driving force in the success of the auto-open feature, allowing you the freedom of loading your printer while the last print is curing, eliminating any risk of scorching or compromising transfer quality due to overheating.

The S-650 has a 16″ x 20″ heat platen that can apply all types of transfers on items up to 1″ thick. The floating lower platen helps provide even pressure on thicker items, no matter were it’s applied. HIX presses provide completely even pressure from edge to edge, even at high temps.

Specialty Presses

HIX B-250 Hat Press

The HIX B-250 is a super portable hat press that’s lightweight enough to bring to shows. The transfer hold down blanket ensures transfers don’t shift anymore. The HIX B-250 comes with a standard heat platen of 3-7/8″x 5-7/8″.

The calibrated digital temperature control is adjustable up to 450°F (232°C) and displays the current temperature. A manual pressure adjustment is located at the back of the cap mount. The innovative bottom cap hold-down stretches the cap out, holding it snug to the lower (rubber covered) platen. A Teflon blanket is suspended between the upper and lower platen to hold the transfer (or lettering) in place before the heating element is locked down.

The B-250 comes standard with a golf size (3″ x 5-1/2″) lower rubber covered platen. It can be interchanged with the optional youth size (2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″) or ball size (3-3/4″ x 5-7/8″). HIX can make custom platens as well. 

FH-3000 

The HIX FH-3000 is for those who want the ability to create transfers onto shirt pockets, sleeves, cuffs, collars, bags, aprons, name badges, tiles, gloves, and small application jobs. The flat attachment has a maximum area of  3-3/4″ x 6-1/4″.

As an added bonus, the FH-3000 only draws a maximum of 4 amps to maintain temperature. This means less energy and reduced electric bills by about 66% (compared to a standard 15” x15” press).
