Master the Following skills In the Process of Roll Transfer Printing!

There are many factors that affect the quality of the roll cloth transfer process. And it is necessary to master the skills. Today,we are sharing you with several skills to ensure the quality of the roll transfer printing.

1.The transfer speed and the hot roller temperature should be adjusted properly. The temperature must wait for the temperature to fluctuate up and down three times after reaching the set temperature. And performe the transfer operation after the temperature is stable.

2.Depending on the weight or stiffness of the paper, fine tune the pressure between the felt and the hot roll.

3.To maintain the same degree of tension between the transfer paper and the fabric, stabilize the proper tension.

4.Before heat transfer printing, make a transfer sample to determine if the temperature and speed of the affected color are appropriate.

5.Before the transfer, we need to blow and defragment the printed surface of the transfer paper and the fabric to remove paper dust, cilia and other attachments.So as to avoid the print defects caused by the inclusion of these debris in the transfer paper and the fabric.

6.To ensure that the transfer paper is dry, the transfer paper with a large amount of moisture will generate a large amount of water vapor during the heat sublimation process. That will cause the transfer paper to soften and lose its stiffness, causing problems such as oblique walking and water ripple.

7.When transferring, you can cut the front of the paper and fabric into inverted V-shape to let the middle advanced. Or you can use the cardboard leading end larger than the width of the transfer paper. So that the entire surface can be smoothly and smoothly fed into the transfer machine. Avoid crushing and pulling leads to wrinkles on transfer.

8.During the transfer process, we should fast separate the paper. That will prevent the paper cloth from coming into contact with it to cause secondary sublimation transfer and ghosting.

9.Pay attention to the safety of the operation during the transfer process. Don’t be close to approach the hot roller and to avoid high temperature burns.

We believe that if you get the skills above,the quality of the roll transfer printing will be guaranteed.

Okay, these all above are my share about the skills when using roller transfer machine. Now, I believe that you must know how to use it correctly. Hope my article can be useful to you.

Important Features of Rotary Heat Transfer Machine

Rotary heat transfer machine consists of a variety of features, but the most important include the device’s size, heat distribution, and textile alignment.

rotary heat transfer machine

Device’s Size
Heat presses are available in two options, small format and large format. Generally, when our client purchases a rotary heat press machine, he/she will consider two factors: (1. Size of the sublimation printer; (2. Future requirements to what will be produced. Most of them prefer to buy a calender that is wider than their current printer in anticipation of growth and changes in the market.
Note: It is recommended that your press has between 0.5- and one-inch margins around all four sides.

sublimation printing Heat Distribution
Large format heat presses should distribute even pressure and accurate heat across the entire platen area. And heat recovery also must be quick and within five degrees of the set temperature. Failure to maintain heat means inferior applications.
Note: Heat press machine should have at least one year warranty and five years on the heating element.

heat transfer machineTextile Alignment
You should also pay attention to transfer paper and textile alignment. A sharp print is the result of a high resolution design and printer, as well as a transfer process where the alignment between the paper and the textile is perfect. In a heat transfer machine, this process is uncontrolled when the press is opened. Upon lifting the top-section textile, the paper may be lifted simultaneously and in a split second the gassed inks deposit on the textile, destroying the sharp image.The use of sticky paper is the most common way to limit this effect.

Our company is a machine manufacturer with over 10 years of experience producing heat transfer machine. We take care of each customer’s idea and, if necessary, our team can make the special size of rotary heat transfer machine for the customer. Any question, please contact us.

Heat Press Machine: Electric Heated Vs. Oil Heated

A heat press machine presses fabrics, non-curved objects, and pieces such as mouse pads or doormats, as large as the heat platen and table allows. This mahine is available in two heating element configurations in the market—electric heated and oil heated. Each one has its own merits. Today’s article is going to share which kind of machine is suitable for your business?

heat press machine

Oil heated rotary calender transfer machines are recommended for use in large production. The cost of an oil heat press is higher than an electric of a similar drum size, so it’s not a necessary expense to make when pairing speed with most digital equipment.

calender heat press The true benefits for oil heat transfer machine is apparent with larger drums. Smaller oil drums, for example those of eight inches in diameter, contain less than two cubic feet of oil but still require a longer heat up and cool down than an electric press of even larger dimensions, which turns into higher power consumption.
( Note: Drum diameters vary from eight up to 55 inches and larger. The speed of heat transfer calender is dictated by the size of the drum and consistency of the heating element. The larger the drum diameter, the faster production speeds can be achieved.)

rotary heat transfer machineElectric calenders offer a lower cost investment, quicker warm up and cool down, simplicity, and the ability to handle most applications with ease. On the other end, oil configurations provide consistency, a variety of size options, efficiency, and the ability to better handle thicker materials.

Importance of Calender Heat Press for Sublimation Printing

Calender heat press allows the sublimation ink to permeate the fabric appropriately. It plays a vital role in the sublimation printing because this process requires the use of a heat transfer machine or calender to execute the sublimation process.

heat transfer machine

Sublimation is a technology that transfers the desired image on fabrics. The heat press machine is the last executant of this technology that makes use of the heat and pressure-which a piece of equipment creates. And with a lot of heat and pressure, the calender imprints our graphic design onto the fabrics to make sure that the dye sublimation ink is released from the material and the ink is strongly affixed to the textile.

rotary heat press machineThe speed of heat transfer calender is dictated by the size of the drum and consistency of the heating element. The larger the drum diameter, the faster production speeds can be achieved.
A high quality heat press will help us run high-volume production simultaneously. And a good machine can work for many years and continue operating in line with the increased production capacity.

calender heat press However, if the heating temperature fluctuates too much or the correct pressure value is not maintained, you can get low quality or inconsistent results. As a result, the color of some areas seems light, while some areas result in darker colors. Therefore, you need to invest in a high quality heat press, or, you will end up with higher costs and waste of time.
(Note: Before placing your garment on a heat press machine for printing, always make a point of stretching it. This helps prevent your prints from cracking.)

At Sublistar, we can provide you with not only the best quality calender heat press and related consumables, we also offer you with the best quality sublimation transfer service and suggestions. Any question, please contact us. Thank you for your reading.

Do You Know What is A Rotary Heat Transfer Machine?

A rotary heat transfer machine, also known as a calender heat press, is widely used into the different fabrics, such as polyester, spandex, and etc.  Can be used to sublimated logo or type, solvent type ink, high temperature and pressure, and a certain amount of time, heat transfer printedhemp, chemical fiber and other material. Consistent temperature, without any color error even in continuous transfer printing, thus to get a clear printing effect.

rotary heat transfer machine

Rotary heat press is used to transfer our designs on to a roll of fabric. The items we will need with a rotary 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 we use will always be composed of polyester, a polyester blend, or some other kind of polyester-coated substrate.

calender heat pressCalender heat press machines 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.

Heat Press Calender- Each Sources Heat Through Different Methods So Choose The Best Way For You!



As we all now that, when do the sublimation transfer printing need use of a heat press calender to execute the sublimation process. While both devices are designed to transfer images to a substrate through heat and pressure, each sources heat through different methods.

heat press machine

For dye sublimation printing, a heat press or calender may be used.


Heat presses calender use aluminum heated by an electric heater, so the temperature is not even across the plate. A rotary or calender heat press is designed to affix heat or cure printed fabrics in three ways—continuously from a roll, sheet, or cut pieces. You can invest in a machine which handles all three applications or in one that just presses roll to roll. Calenders use two drums, either heated with oil or an electrical IR rod inserted in the drum. The speed of these machines is dictated by the size of the drum and consistency of the heating element.

The calender process includes feeding material over or under a rotary drum. Widths vary between 45 and 122 inches, with large custom orders possible. Drum diameters vary from eight up to 55 inches and larger. Drum size is related to speed. The larger the drum, the faster production speeds can be achieved.  However, calenders are limited to only flexible media making them ideally suited for flags, banners, and apparel production.

Rotary heat press consist of a series of hard pressure rollers that finish or smooth a sheet of material like paper, textiles, or plastics. It’s also used to form plastic films and apply coatings. These devices are designed for R2R sublimation, typically for textiles.

Introduce the Two Key Factors When Choose a Rotary Heat Press Machine




Everyone want buy a good products when start their business, so they will learn the main features of the machine, we sells heat press machine for many years, today we will introduce you the two key factors when choosing a rotary heat press machine

heat press machine

heat press machine

As we know, the main part of rotary heat press are the diameter and the width of the drum. Drums can vary in diameter from 20 cm to 2 m+; and the wider the diameter of the drum, the higher the press’s production speed. This is because the substrate needs to be in contact with the heated drum for an average of 40 seconds to achieve effective sublimation. This means that it can pass twice as quickly over a 40 cm drum compared with a 20 cm drum due to the larger contact area.

heat press machine

heat press machine

There is also a wide range of drum widths available, from 400 mm (working width) to 5000 mm+. It makes sense to match the width of the drum to the width of your printer; or you could opt for a wider drum to future-proof your investment in the event that you move up to a wider printer at a later date.

In terms of production speed, a rotary press with a 35 cm drum will keep pace with two or three Mimaki JV33, TS34 or Epson 7000 printers. Traditionally, presses run much faster than the printers; however things are beginning to change with more productive digital printers coming onto market.

The ‘sport’ style or rotary press, which incorporates an automated table at the front, is an especially versatile choice, as it enables the continuous printing of single panels/pieces as well as conventional roll-to-roll sublimation.

What Situation Need You Consider A Rotary Heat Press Machine?




Once you’ve printed your design onto a piece or roll of transfer paper, you need to transfer that design to your substrate. This requires a combination of heat and pressure to cause the solid dye particles on the transfer paper to change into a sublimates, so that it separates from the paper and is permanently bonded to the polyester threads or coating.

So what should you be looking for when purchasing a rotary heat press for wide format sublimation printing? What are the options


If you’re mainly printing onto made-up apparel, small areas of substrate, or you are likely to also want to print onto hard substrates, then a flatbed is the way to go. However, if your sublimation printing operation is geared more towards high volume printing of textiles, sports and fashion wear, or you wish to print long lengths of substrate then you’ll want to consider a rotary press. These ‘tend’ to be more expensive than flatbeds, depending on the individual press’s size and spec, but they also offer much faster production speeds.

heat press

Rotary heat press machine have a cylindrical felt covered drum, which is filled with oil. The oil is heated to the required temperature (200°C) creating an even and stable heat across the entire width of the drum. For roll-to-roll printing, rolls of the substrate and printed transfer paper are transported together around the heated drum, remaining in contact with the drum for a given length of time.

rotary heat press machine

rotary heat press machine

A roller heat press machine is used to apply tension to the tubular felt, which in turn applies pressure to the substrate and paper, holding it against the heated drum to facilitate the sublimation process. Separate rollers may also transport ‘protection paper’, which is used to prevent any excess gas that doesn’t sublimate into the substrate from transferring to the felt on the drum, which could lead to unwanted transfer of the dye back onto the roll of substrate.

Do You Want A Smaller Roller Heat Transfer Machine To Make a Proof?




For the heat press machine, there are two main types of heat press for dye sublimation printing – flatbed or rotary, plus a third option; a rotary press with a flat automated feed table at the front. Today we will introduce you the detail of the flatbed heat press machine

heat press

Roller Heat press machine comprise a table onto which the substrate is positioned. A sheet of printed transfer paper is then placed on top of the substrate. The table transports the substrate and paper under a platen that is heated to a given temperature, depending on the substrate. The heated platen is brought into contact with the transfer paper under sufficient pressure to cause the dyes on the paper to sublimate and transfer to the polyester substrate underneath. On the larger more industrial machines the beds are lifted using hydraulic rams to apply the pressure.

heat press

Heat press machine with twin tables are generally regarded as a good investment. While an item is being pressed and sublimated on the first table, the operator can be positioning the next item to be printed on the second table. This avoids delays between each cycle and ensures that the press runs continuously, maximising production. If your budget is limited or you have relatively low volume production, then a single table press is an affordable, albeit significantly less productive, alternative.


Roll heat press calender are available with tables in a wide range of sizes . A press with a bed measuring 1.5/1.7 m x 1 m is a perfect starting point for most new wide format dye sub printing operations using a 44” wide printer, In general, heat presses operate faster than digital dye sub printers, so a single press can service multiple printers.

Wider tables allow the printing of larger items and also enable you to print a larger number of smaller made-up garments, panels or products simultaneously, potentially increasing production.
