What’s The Function Of Rotary Heat Press In Sublimation Printing? While a seemingly simple piece of equipment, heat presses machine are essential for sublimation and heat transfer. Let’s have a look at it.

A rotary hot press, also known as a calendar transfer machine, is used to continuously transfer the dye sublimation print onto the fabric. Machines like this are used in many types of applications. You can use it to print fabric rolls, make signage, make flags, use cut parts to cut and sew garments, and even make ribbons or long strips.

Rotary presses are usually manufactured in two different ways, ranging from 10-220″. Both types of presses are called roll-to-roll rotary presses and cutting parts rotary presses.

Roll-to-roll rotary press: This type of rotary press is used to transfer your design to a roll of fabric. Items required to use a roll-to-roll rotary press include pre-printed transfer paper, tissue and fabric. The pre-printed transfer paper has a slight tack and is used to hold the fabric in place. The thin paper keeps sublimation ink from entering the belt around the drum. The fabric you use will always consist of polyester, polyester blend or some other polyester coated substrate. A roll-to-roll spinning machine usually has three expansions and three rewinds. The three items listed above are loaded onto the unwinding bar of the rotary press. They gather together and pass through a press, wrapping around a heated drum. This part of the process is called “residence time”, which is where the sublimation process takes place. The rewinding rod then rolls up the now printed fabric, used transfer paper and used tissue.

Cutting parts rotary press: This type of rotary press machine is used to transfer your design to pre-cut fabrics, but it can also produce fabric rolls. You still need pre-printed transfer paper and tissue for this rotary press, as well as cut fabric pieces. The cutting part rotary press has a workbench attached to the front of the press that allows your production team to place pre-cut fabric on pre-printed transfer paper. The preprinted transfer paper is loaded on the deployment bar and fed into the heated drum area. The cut parts are placed on pre-printed transfer paper and fed into the printer. Presses that are set up for cutting parts typically have three expansions and three rewinds. This allows the press to operate like a roll-to-roll rotary press, if desired.
