If that's the final picture of your dryer placement, it looks like it will be too far from the unload station unless you are running your press counter clockwise.
It's not a job if you love doing it.

I would have the unload station at the front of the feed, but I guess the side works too if that what you want. When we moved earlier this year we almost had our press in the wrong place; that would have truly sucked, fortunately, the riggers were still here and the press wasn't assembled yet.

I'd say that the side is fine (kinda' the way it is when you graduate to 2 presses feeding a wide belt), but I'd still aim for close to the beginning of the in feed.

Agreed on looking at the unload station to see if you can move closer to the end of the belt.

Also, if that's the case, is your loading station (and loading cart) going to be hindered by that wall? It looks tight from the picture how you're going to roll shirts, etc. in at that point. The loader goes around the press all the time, so giving good access, room for white ink by your first head, etc. is important. Don't want that to be too much of a pinch point, especially if you have more space toward the center of the room.

Thanks guys I will consider moving my conveyor dryer up after I print some shirts to see if it would be better and easier. That way I wont have to move my entire press and level it again haha

Turn your press so the left corner of the unload pallet is 32" from the corner of the belt. That distance works perfectly so you wont have to take a step or turn around.

Do you have a suggestion for angle? I see presses all over the place and sometimes I think we are turning too much.
