|Pants Toppers – the make and model are found on the top left side of the press frame.|
|FORENTA||The model number on all Forenta pressing machines is found in the serial number. This information is located on the right side of the press, just below the press table. Be sure to write down the entire serial number.|
|HOFFMAN||The make and model are located on the right side of the press just behind the pressing table.|
|SANKOSHA||These are perhaps the easiest. Most of the information needed is on the front of the press frame in large bold numbers and letters, in plain view. What a concept!|
|UNIPRESS||On the shirt body units, the make and model is located in plain view, on the front top corner of the frame. It’s on a gray panel, and even lists the Unipress part numbers for the appropriate pads, covers and air bags.|
|On all other presses, the make and model is located on the right side of the press just under the pressing table, on the box where the controls are located.|
Now that you know where to look for the needed information, here are some tips to make reading the model number much more easy.
- Carry a small flashlight. This will help shed some light on the needed information.
- A white crayon. You can rub the crayon over the letters and numbers making them much easier to read.
- Have a tape measure with you. If for some reason the make and model numbers are not available, you can measure the buck of the press and match up the correct pad and cover.
- Have some craft paper available. This will allow you to make a tracing, a template, of the press buck, in the event that the model number is missing, or that the press has been rebuilt.
Remember that while information is power, correct information is KING. Get the make and model number and ordering press pads and covers will be a breeze!
