Roll-To-Roll Heat Transfer Machine vs. Cut Parts Rotary Press

rotary heat transfer machineA rotary heat press, also known as a calendar transfer machine, is used to continuingly transfer dye-sublimation prints onto a fabric. Machines like this are used in many types of applications. You can use it for printing fabric rolls, creating signage, producing flags, working with cut part pieces for cut-and-sew apparel, and even for making pieces of ribbon or long straps.

Rotary presses are typically manufactured two different ways and come in widths that range from 10–220″. The two types of presses are referred to as a roll-to-roll heat transfer machine and a cut part rotary press (the latter features a table).

1. Roll-to-roll heat transfer machine
This type of rotary press is used to transfer your designs on to a roll of fabric. The items you will need with a roll-to-roll heat transfer machine include pre-printed transfer paper, tissue paper, and fabric. The pre-printed transfer paper has a slight tackiness to it, and it’s used to hold the fabric in place. The tissue paper keeps the sublimation ink from getting on to the belt that goes around the drum. The fabric you use will always be composed of polyester, a polyester blend, or some other kind of polyester-coated substrate. Roll-to-roll heat transfer machine typically come with three unwinds and three rewinds. The three items listed above are loaded onto the unwind rods of the rotary press. They come together and go through the press, looping around the heated drum. This part of the process is called the “dwell time,” and this is where the sublimation process happens. The rewind rods then roll up the now-printed fabrics, the used transfer paper, and used tissue paper.

2. Cut parts rotary press
This type of rotary heat press is used to transfer your design on to pre-cut pieces of fabric, but it can also create rolls of fabric. You still need pre-printed transfer paper and tissue paper for this kind of rotary press, as well as your cut pieces of fabric. Cut parts rotary presses have a table attached to the front of the press, giving your production team the ability to lay down pre-cut fabrics on to the pre-printed transfer paper. The pre-printed transfer paper is loaded on the unwind rod and fed into the heated drum area. The cut parts are laid down on the pre-printed transfer paper and fed into the printer. A press that is set up for cut part application typically comes with three unwinds and three rewinds as well. This affords the press the ability to operate like a roll-to-roll heat transfer machine if needed.
​​
Specialized rotary press accessories are available, but they are optional items. For example, if you are working with ribbons or straps, you can purchase a rotary press that has webbing features. Some manufacturers have this as an optional item to add on when purchasing your press.

As with all new equipment, there will be a learning curve until you feel comfortable using your machine. Feel confident knowing that this is a low learning curve, and it’s just a small matter of time before you’re a master at operating your rotary press. Three basic variables affect your results: heat, pressure, and time. Some ink manufacturers give a recommendation on the dwell time. Based on that recommendation, you will need to experiment by adjusting the temperature and time to achieve ideal results.

Something Need To Consider Before Buying A Heat Press Machine

​Here’re the important things you need to keep in mind when purchasing the best affordable t-shirt printing machine for your t-shirt printing needs.

heat press machine1. Quality
The first thing you want to do when buying your heat press machine for t-shirts is the quality. As much as you want to invest your money in a durable, long-term machine, you’ll need to make sure it comes with the ultimate quality.

The easiest way to detect a durable machine when comparing different models is looking at the weight. Of course, a durable, high-quality machine will be heavier given the materials used to construct it.

Your machine needs to withstand consistent clamping and movements involved. And if you invest in a bad quality, light machine, it will not be able to handle that.

2. Budget
This is especially useful for beginners who are planning to buy their first ever machine.

My simple advice is: spend according to your limits while making sure the machine you buy will meet your basic printing needs.

3. Digital Timer and Temperature Control
Almost all the modern cheap heat press machines are integrated with digital time and temperature controls. These help you set the correct time and temperature values depending on the materials you’re working on.

If you don’t wish to risk burning your customer’s t-shirts or tote bags due to overexposure, you’ll need to consider this feature.

4. Temperature and Time Range
While still on temperature and time aspects of a heat transfer machine, you should take a chance to learn their range.

​For a standard heat press, about 350 degrees Fahrenheit temperature and approx. 10 seconds is adequate to meet your t-shirt printing needs. The range will vary if you’re working on thicker garments- like hoodies or sweatshirts.

heat press machine5. Size
The choice of the heat transfer you buy should primarily be fueled by the space available as well as the size of the garments you’re working on.

I’d suggest that you consider the bigger models- measuring 16 x 20 inch as they offer you a larger working space.

Models smaller than this are great if you’re on a budget- though they might not offer you a comfortable working space when printing on larger garments such as XL tees and hoodies.

If you’re working on kids t-shirts, models as small as 9 x 12 inch will serve you well.

If you’ve limited space at your office or home, consider investing in compact models that are space-efficient.

In addition, there are many other things need to consider. We will share with you next time.

Designing clothes have evolved and it has become a great alternative to the classic screen printing. Heat transfer gives your shirt or any garment a neat and nice look. You can be sure of getting that awesome design printed on your shirt exactly the way it looks on the screen.

 

rotary heat transfer machineThe concept of heat transfer is very simple; all you need is a heat press machine, an inkjet printer with regular printer inks or T-shirt inks. The paper used for heat presses in T-shirt printing is called carrier paper.

 

This carrier paper has a film on it. The unprinted part of this sheet has to be trimmed using a vinyl cutting machine before printing, and the transfer paper is then placed on the shirt and heated in a heat press with medium to high pressure.

 

Whether you are using a basic or sophisticated heat transfer machines, heat press machines basically function and operate the same way. Here’s a step-by-step instruction on how to use a heat press machine:

 

  • Turn on the machine by pressing the on/off switch
  • Turn the thermostat knob to the right until you can see the red heating light.
  • Turn the knob back to the left until the heating light turns off when the thermometer indicates the desired temperature for your transfer, The red heating light will turn on and off at intervals to regulate your desired temperature.
  • Set the heating time by pressing your digital timer if your machine has one. Press stop to reset when you hear the alarm.
  • Open the press by lifting the handle
  • Lay the transfer onto the spot you want the design to appear on the paper.
  • Close the machine against your fabric and the transfer and lock it firmly.
  • Set the timer based on the instructions you see on your transfer paper.
  • Lift the handle to open the machine.
  • Peel the transfer paper off the face of your shirt. You should read the instructions to know whether it is a “hot peel” or “cold peel” paper.
  • Wait for at least 24 hours before washing.

How Much Pressure is Needed for Perfect Heat Transfer?

rotary heat transfer machineGarment decoration is a high margin business. As businesses adopt the technology of thermal transfer from vinyl graphics, it is seen that pressure poses the main problem in the process. This is paramount when spot color graphics are applied to fabric through the use of any adhesive-backed film.

Thermal transfer films are of different kinds and thus the temperature and dwell time could vary for each kind of film. Harm causing factors Other than temperature and time, the pressure needs to vary as well. Too little pressure makes a bad product. The graphic will peel off quickly or after some time. It is thus important to make a nice job of it.

For a majority of the thermal transfer products, there is a certain formula consisting of temperature, pressure, and dwell time. When it comes to CAD films, the need for pressure takes the form of a standard guideline, heavy, medium or light. On a few print applications like dye sublimation, the recommended pressure is printed in pounds. To give an example, a ChromoBlast pressure setting is 60lbs. Correct pressure is important for a quality product. Thermal film adhesives get activated by both pressure and heat. Insufficient amount of any of these two will result in the film not sticking to the garment.

A few film manufacturers have claimed that the output stated by heat press is wrong, and the operator needs a digital thermometer to get the needed application temperature. Importance of pressure Heat is only a small component of the equation. Inadequate pressure will make a weak bond between fabric and film. Too light a pressure means the adhesive will not bond with the garment fibers. The latter will be overwhelmed by the stress generated by liner removal. The turbulence, water, and heat of laundering may also cause the applique to move away in case it has not sealed in a proper manner. Thus there is a possibility that there can be sufficient pressure for the first transfer to be held, and insufficient to be a wash-fast.

sublimation paperIt is apparent that correct pressure is extremely important. A thumb rule is to put a little more pressure than recommended. Excessive pressure is perfectly okay for most films. An effective technique to make sure that the print remains fast is to repress that transfer post liner removal. You should peel the liner, and reduce time setting to approximately five seconds, and then press again. This process will assist the film to recover from the weakening effect generated by the liner pulling at the fresh bond between fabric and film.

How to Make Your Heat Press Get the Best Results?

rotary heat transfer machineIn the heat press business of printing, the need to constantly create designs that are innovative and high quality mostly depends on the kind of heat press machines that you select to get the job done.

Here’s a step by step process on how to heat press for great results:

1. The Right Heat Press for Mugs
Ideally, mugs can be pressed with a combo multi attachment mug heat press that has a separate attachment for the specific mug shape you using including standard 11 and 15 oz mugs, water bottles, steins, latte mugs and/or pint glasses. Other than that, you could go with one that is specifically designed for standard mugs. Use sublimation glass, ceramic or metal mugs for the best results.

2. Design the Image`
Using specialized software, design the graphic that you want printed. Make sure you reverse the digital image using the image editing software.

sportswear printing3. Print Image Using Sublimation Paper
Using the sublimation paper, you will need to imprint the graphical image on the mug. Make sure the colors are right. Send the image to be printed on your sublimation printer, then trim the extra sublimation paper to form the shape of your graphical design.

4. Transfer Image to Mug
Apply the right pressure on the mug, so that it sits securely. Next, set your heat press to the proper temperature. Throughout this time, make sure you take safety measures and wear protective gloves while dealing with the heat press equipment. Place the design face-down on the mug, and make certain it stays securely over it with heat resistant tape. When the heat press is ready, place pressure on the mug to imprint the image.

Once the printing is accomplished, peel off the sublimation transfer paper off the mug. You could also immediately submerge it in lukewarm water for it to cool off.

So Easy! 5 Tips for You to Sublimate Mugs Successfully

Sublimate mugsMugs are so popular in the market, it is due to it’s cheap and personal. When it comes to sublimating mugs, you will want to make sure that you get everything on point, to avoid wastage. To ensure that you hand out your best work, here’re five tips that you should use:

1. Checking completion of cooking

If you want to check if you have cooked the mug properly or not, all you need to do is remove some of the paper from the corners. Take a close look to see if the image you sublimated is of high quality. However, if you are unable to remove the corner portions of the paper, you will need to cook the mug for a longer time. Sometimes, you might have to increase the pressure, as it wasn’t enough.

2. Cooling after completion of sublimation

Once you have completed sublimating the image on to the mug, you will have to remove the transfer swiftly so that you can start the cooling process. The reason why you need to cool the mug is to bring the sublimation process to a complete halt. If you have to cool a ceramic mug, you can keep it in water along with the transfer at room temperature.

3. Correct measurements

When you want to sublimate the image correctly on the mug, make sure that you measure between the tapering parts and adjust the templates accordingly. The reason is that you won’t get a proper print if you directly sublimate the print on to the tapered section.

As there won’t be proper pressure and contact at the handles of the mug, make sure that you leave at least ¾ – inch gap at the bottom and top of the handle for a good print.

heat press4. Oven temperature

To cook the mug properly, you should make sure that the sublimation oven temperature is 400 degrees. As most sublimation ovens don’t display the right temperature, it is better to measure it manually, with the help of a thermometer. When the temperature is low, your mug will be under cooked.

5. Trim bottom and top edges of the paper

To prevent the paper from going into the mug’s tapered portion, you should trim the bottom and top. When there is excess paper, it will wrinkle, affecting the quality of the image.

Isn’t that easy to use these five tips to sublimate mugs successfully?
