The HIX SwingMan Hobby Lite heat press is designed for small shops, hobbyists, artists, schools, social organizations and anyone who is looking for a heat press at a value price. This press offers many of the same high-quality features and performance grades as our professional equipment.

Weighing in at only 19 pounds, the Hobby Lite heat press offers those pro shops with mobile operations the ability to bring their products to the market and increase their capacity.

The SwingMan Hobby Lite has a 9" x 12" heat platen that swings away from the work area, giving you a safe work environment for placing transfers on a multitude of substrates. The swing-away feature of the Hobby Lite also gives you the flexibility of imaging items up to 1.75" thick.

The SwingMan Hobby Lite is the perfect low-cost heat press for imaging items such as ceramic tile, mouse pads, plaques, coasters, shirts, and more. The 9" x 12" surface and economical price make it the number one press for small business, home, or school projects.

  • Swing-Away design. This means the heat is never near your hands and you can comfortably operate the press practically anywhere. A stop keeps the head from going too far when it is swung back to the left.
  • Full-range temperature control to 400°F. There is no guesswork about temperature. You dial it in like you would on an oven. The 400°F temperature (unusual in such a small press) will transfer anything currently on the market.
  • Lightweight portability at 19 lbs. This kind of "tuck it under your arm" ability makes it ideal for mobile retail needs. The small size makes it ideal for use at flea markets, craft fairs, and other special events where space is limited.
  • Heat indicating light. No need for a temperature gauge. Dial the temperature needed and turn the press on. When the light goes off, the press is ready.
  • Other features of this press include: full-range pressure control, easy-to-use pressure lever, and built-in electrical safety fuse.
  • 1-year warranty
  • Platen Size: 9" x 12"
  • Dimensions: W 17" x H 14" x D 20"
  • Weight: 19 lbs (8.5 kg)
  • Made in the U.S.A.

The HIX SwingMan 15 heat press is perfect for start-up, small, or mobile shops who are intent on high quality impressions and reliable equipment for the sublimation market.

The SwingMan 15 offers the ability to do garment transfers ranging from youth to XL adult sizes, and accepts substrates up to 1-3/4" thick. The capability to imprint tiles, license plates, and mouse pads are all now available to you!

Built under the same vision as the "workhorse" HT-400, this swing-away design offers rugged reliability in a lightweight heat press.

Recognized as one of the most reliable small format swing-away heat transfer presses on the market, this unit packs a lot of punch. At the heart of the SwingMan 15 is a 15"x15" lifetime guaranteed cast-in heating element with a swing-away design that keeps the hot surfaces away from your hands and arms. It's engineered with a sturdy steel design and an easy-adjust pressure control, full-range temperature settings from off to 400°F, a heat indicator light, and a separate handheld digital timer.

For those mobile shops where your business travels with you, this portable unit is only 57 lbs. and takes up very little space and work surface. The SwingMan 15 makes press transfer applications virtually unlimited - you can transfer to garments, mouse-pads, glass-cutting boards, plaques, ceramic tiles, and so much more! This makes it especially perfect for those mobile shops at races, concerts, state fairs, and any event where you can make money!

Like all HIX heat presses, the SwingMan 15 has a one-year warranty on components, a lifetime warranty on the heating element, and is ETL Certified for electrical safety.

  • Accepts items up to 1.75" thick. Thick tiles, plaques and many other items require this ability.
  • Right swing-away design. The swing-away design gives straight down pressure needed for tiles, plaques, and other items.
  • Full-range temperature control to 450°F. There is no guesswork about temperature. You dial it in like you would on an oven. The 450°F temperature (unusual in such a small press) will transfer anything currently on the market.
