① Plug in the your Smooth Mount unit and press the power button on the back of the machine.
② Press the "on" button on the control panel, and set the temperature using the up / down arrows next to the display screen.
③ Press the "run" button to start the rollers, and set the speed using the corresponding up / down arrows.
④ While warming up, place the extension arms onto the rear table to create a stable exit tray. When these are not in use, they can be easily stored underneath the machine.
⑤ Once the desired temperature is achieved and the speed is set, line up your print on your mounting board of choice, and place a cover over the print, if applicable. Place the print into the machine.
And it is as simple as that! The board will exit onto the extension arms and rest securely while it cools, without having to catch it on the other side. This ensures a flat print, as touching the board while it is still hot could bend or distort it. If you need to stop the machine from running, press the "stop" button, or if you need to reverse a board that is already inserted into the machine, press and hold down the "reverse" button.
