Right now our industry is dominated by embroidery on hats, so here at ASPE we thought, what is we can print the tread instead of stitching it? Printing the designs directly onto the hat will allow you to have a lower cost per impression and will also greatly increase your production speeds.
In this video we are printing about 700 to a 1000 hats per hour, which far exceeds anything that you can ever do with embroidery machines. There are levers below the loading and the unloading station that allow you to easily secure or release the hat from the machine.
You can also notice that the machine will not print unless there is a hat present, that is because we have a parts present sensor to detect every hat in front of the print head. This means that if their is no hat in front of the print head, then the machine will not print on that pallet.
