Models affected

DP-series, MP-series, DM-series. Model numbers included, but not limited to, are listed in Annex A.


An industrial sublimation calender press used to transfer designs onto fabrics or other materials. The press has an oil-filled heated drum (roller), which is used to apply pressure and heat to transfer the designs. A weekly programming function allows the user to pre-heat the machine to a set temperature at a specific date and time.

Sublimation calender presses within the scope of the corrective action have been identified as presenting a serious risk of fire and explosion.

There is potential for the oil-filled drum to overheat during operation. If left unattended, which use of the weekly programming function allows, this overheating can lead to the catastrophic failure of the drum. Rupture of the drum containing the pressurized oil, which is at or above its boiling point, can cause an explosion.

The product does not meet the requirements of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008.
