Heat Press in XXL - perfect for sublimation

The Lotus LTS 518 features 2 extricable printing plates and has been particularly developed for large-format and sublimation printing on hard substrates such as ChromaLuxe panels etc. 

Mikanit 2.0 heating technology

Fast heating and even and constant transfer temperature is guaranteed, as well as extended durability of the heating elements. The heating rods can be exchanged one by one, representing a very economic and sustainable solution.

On request, we will be happy to supply this heat press with an additional second lower heating plate. In this case, you will have the choice between using both heating plates at a time or only the upper or lower one.

Benefit from our 10 years warranty on Lotus heating parts. And take advantage of a heating technology that saves energy compared to other heat presses on the market.

Free-standing printing plate

The extricable printing plates offer comfort when positioning the textile or sublimation media as well as the motifs/prints.

Digital display

The clearly arranged digital display allows you to conveniently set and control the transfer time and transfer temperature. This press features a memory function, thanks to which you can save up to three different temperature and time programs for pressing flock-, flex- or sublimation transfers. A job counter function allows you to count the prints completed.

Simplicity of use

The transfer process starts conveniently at the push of a button. A convenient automatism will now lower the heating plate, lock it and keep it under pressure. After the countdown of the set transfer time, the heating plate will lift automatically. If desired, a speed regulator is available to control the tempo.

Thanks to the extricable opening, you will overview the entire transfer area and conveniently position your print motifs. Mounting and unmounting the textile is very easy to do. Accidental contact with the heating plate will be avoided due to wide opening angle.


Perfect dimension for printing on large format textiles as well as sublimation media, such as ChromaLuxe.

Alternatively, we offer printing spaces of (2 x) 120 x 80 cm as LTS 512 and (2 x) 130 x 90 cm as LTS 514.


The ergonomic opening function and safety audio / visual signs ensure a safe working process.

Custom Design & Service

We will be pleased to adjust this heat press to your specific requirements (like installing a second lower heating plate) if desired. 

Feel free to send your own printing samples to our lab if you wish to test this heat press prior to purchase. Or visit our showrooms in Milan or Berlin.
