HOT•BOX - Horizontal Drawer Dryer

The PTM HOT•BOX is an all-electric curing oven designed specifically for curing direct-to-garment water-based pigmented inks.

Available with 2 drawers allowing it to be a convenient stand for all brands of desktop DTG printers. Plug into normal mains power and the HOT•BOX is super convenient to operate in tight workplaces, as the unique feature of the HOT•BOX is that NO steam or hot air extraction is needed.

The proprietary heating system actively removes moisture which is stored in the on-board waste water tank. Each individual drawer is auto opening and fully insulated with vane forced air circulation – it will deliver the ultimate radiant heat curing evenly, over any printed garment. More accurate, all add up to the ultimate in pretreat and cure for the growing DTG market.
