Calculating Your Production Needs:
1. Determine inside oven length (dimensions page 11). 2. Determine number of items oven will hold, i.e. 18”/item on 10’ belt = 6 items/cycle. 3. Determine cycles per hour. This depends on cure times of the ink. (See cure time examples) Divide cure time into 60 minutes to get cycles per hour. CURE TIME EXAMPLES: Plastisol Inks -90 seconds (40 cycles/hr) Water-Base Dyes -2 minutes (30 cycles/hr) Nylon Inks - 60 seconds (60 cycles/hr) 4. Multiply number of items the oven can hold (Step 2) by the number of cycles per hour (Step 3). Divide by 12 to obtain dozens per hour. EXAMPLE: 24” wide 10’ oven chamber curing plastisol ink STEP 1 - 10’ oven = 120” STEP 2 - 120” ÷ 18” print = 6 items per cycle STEP 3 - 60 minutes ÷ 90 seconds (plastisol cure time) = 40 cycles per hour STEP 4 - 6 shirts X 40 cycles per hour = 240 items per hour. 240 ÷ 12 = 20 dozen units per hour

NOTE: Pretest all cure times.
