Components in Shoe Platen Complete Kit
Three (3) Shoe Platen Inserts
Both Shoe Platen Kits come with a three different size Shoe Platen Inserts. This allows for most size and styles of footwear to be printed on. The Medium and Large Platen Inserts also allow for undermount blocks that can be used to secure the footwear from the bottom should it be desired.
All the Shoe Platen Inserts are made out of durable and flat polycarbonate material.
Mounting Kit (Included with the Complete Kit Only)
The Mounting Kit, also used on the Touchdown Platen, is required in order to mount the Shoe Platen Inserts on to the GT printer. The Mounting Kit uses the same pin setup as the standard GT Adult Platen that comes with the different GT Printers. This allows the Shoe Platen Kit to mount on all the different GT printers.
For those GT users that already have a Touchdown Platen, only the Shoe Platen Basic Kit is needed.
Since there is a large number of styles and sizes, it would be almost impossible to provide artwork templates on all of them. But the Shoe Platen Kit comes with the next best thing – the Alignment Jig. The Alignment Jig, made out of a clear piece of plastic, displays guidelines above the shoes to help align the artwork in the graphic software program.
The Shoe Platen Inserts have a square hole cut out directly above the Large Pin on the Mounting Kit. There is a black square block that is mounted to the bottom of the Alignment Jig that fits into the cut out on the Shoe Platen Inserts to align it.
