Panenka A4 Thermal Imaging Machine — 115v

Taking it back to a more classic and simple design, Panenka’s “Thermal Imager” is an old-school “thermal” style burner, but with higher quality results by today’s standards. This 115v thermal imaging machine is easy to use and allows you to conveniently apply your stencil design onto your client's skin, negating the time consuming process of freehand stenciling. The thermal copier is reliable in both performance and safety with features like a manual feed switch and automatic overheat protection, also making this machine easy to maintain and keep jam-free. This stencil image copier has a 1350 watt output and is compatible with a 20 amp fuse. The maximum carrier width is 9.25”. Clear carriers are recommended for use with Panenka thermal machines; please see below for a list of accessories and replacement pieces.

The Thermal Imager is engineered and manufactured in Germany. German Thermal Imagers will only transfer from carbon toner copies (copiers and laser printers); please use carbon-based copies as this will provide the best results. Standard inkjet/CMYK printers will not work since it is not carbon-based, Modern inkjet printers, such as the Canon Pixma models, contain a pigmented cartridge that is compatible with the Panenka Thermal Imager. Please view the gallery of images for an example of a standard ink copy next to a pigment copy, as well as a comparison of the Spirit Classic Purple and the Green stencil paper (on right). The Green paper shows better results on the same speed-setting.

This 115v thermal copier is suitable for use in the US, which utilizes a 110v up to 120v power grid. Please ensure this thermal copier has a voltage that is compatible with your country’s electrical grid before purchasing.

Please Note: Relays have a limited life span and need to be replaced after approximately 4000 switches. Depending on the frequency of use, the life span of the machine relay is 6–10 years.

Please remember to turn off the main switch after the cool-down phase, which lasts several minutes. The software in this machine tracks errors during operation and stores the data in a memory chip. After a certain number of stored errors, the machine will switch off for security. Switching the machine off improperly will register as an error, which can lead to problems.

In order to regulate the intensity of energy used for the copying process, you can vary the speed ranging from 1 to 10 (Note: you cannot adjust the lamp; it always burns at the same intensity).

Stencil papers from different manufacturers, brands, and batches vary, so it is important to test and find the appropriate speed-setting for the stencil paper you use. It is recommended to start on speed-setting 8.0 (generally, settings between 6.5 and 8.0 have been found to be optimal), and adjust to find the best setting for your situation. Faster speed equals a higher number, resulting in a lighter copy. Slower speeds equals a lower number, resulting in a darker copy.
