Cricut Autopress incorporates several thoughtful safety and automatic features that take the physical effort and guesswork out of pressure, time, and temperature, so you can press with confidence and peace of mind.
- Zero Effort operation – it takes just two fingers to close the machine and engage the motors that apply perfect pressure. When the pressing cycle is complete, the press auto-releases so you don’t have to worry about overheating your project.
- Auto-adjusts to materials up to 2 in (5cm) thick. Simply lower the heat plate until it touches your project, then press down on the handle – Cricut Autopress automatically adjusts to apply the perfect pressure to thicker blanks.
- Sturdy steel construction of Cricut Autopress means you can lift the press with the handle on the front of the machine and the handhold at the back of the machine. Two-person lifting is recommended.
- Large 15 in x 12 in (38 cm x 30 cm) advanced heat plate with ceramic-coated surface
- Self-opening heat plate – when transfer is complete the press opens automatically
- Extra-wide open position – allows you plenty of room to see and safely position your project on the platen
- Precise, even heating from 170° - 400°F (75° - 205°C)
- Fast heat-up times, reaching 400°F (205°C) in under 8 minutes
