HEAT TAPE OPERATION FOR METAL AND RUBBER DIES
Buy Heat Tape

1. Heat machine up to at least 300 degrees.
2. Put die on part and position under hot stamp head.
3. Cycle machine to make sure that the head comes in contact with the die.
4. Put the machine in "set up" mode.
5. Put heat tape all over the die. Make sure that there are no wrinkles.
6. Cycle the head down and count to 20. Then turn the "set up" off to let the head return.
7. Count to 20 with the head up. This will allow the heat tape and die to heat up.
8. Put the machine in "set up" again and cycle the head and count to 20. Then turn off the
"set up" switch to let the head return.
9. Set the machine to the run mode and begin production.
10. When using a silicone rubber, be sure to engage the depth stop. Set the stop so the die CANNOT touch the part that you are stamping. One way to do this is to turn off the air. The head will drop down onto the part. Then turn the stop clockwise until it can no longer turn. Next, turn the air back on. Then turn the stop (1) full turn clockwise. When you cycle the press you should get a faint print. Finally; turn the stop to fine tune the machine.
