What Do You Know About A Heat Press Machine?

Heat press machine is the machine that presses a transfer onto an imprintable substrate. Using high temperatures and heavy pressures for a certain amount of time, the transfer is permanently embedded into the product. Today’s article is going to share some common questions about a calender.

WHAT IS A HEAT TRANSFER?
A transfer is made up of a carrier paper and inks. When heated to a certain temperature and pressed with a significant amount of pressure for a certain amount of time, the transfer inks are passed over to the imprintable material. Some inks are adhered to and embedded to the surface of the material, while others (namely, sublimation) permeate the coating of the material.

Transfers can be heat pressed onto fabrics (both natural and synthetic) using standard plastisol supplier transfers, color copier, or thermal wax & ink-jet computer transfer paper. Heat transfers can also be printed onto mugs, plates, tiles, mousepads, ceramics, metals, glass and wood. For these substrates, sublimation transfers are used. The important factor when heat pressing with sublimation transfers onto non-natural fabric substrates is to be sure the material has the proper polyester synthetic coating, as well as a UV coating if protection from the sun and other rays is an issue. For this reason it is best to get the materials pre-coated from a supplier.

The following are some of the far more common items often heat pressed by a calender heat transfer machine. But, the list by no means ends here.

* T-Shirts
* Caps
* Ceramic Plates
* Ceramic Tiles
* Mugs
* Mouse Pads
* Tote Bags
* Lettering
* Jigsaw Puzzles
* Wood / Metals
* Paper Memo Cubes
* Rhinestones/Crystals
* Other Misc. Fabrics & Materials

WHAT IS THE BEST HEAT PRESS?
The answer to that question depends upon a variety of factors, including what products you plan to press, how much you plan to use your heat press machine, and even how much space you have to work with. To help you weigh the heat press options, please read our “How To Choose A Heat Press” post.

Why Heat Transfer Printed Clothes Occur Fading Phenomenon?

Heat transfer printed clothes is the main products in heat transfer industry. Do you know why heat transfer printed clothes occur fading phenomenon?

1. Washing Fading

Washing fading is normally with transfer paper and offset heat transfer printing ink, so the ink that do not dissolve in water is better. The pigment ink jet printing press as the character, principle of transfer paper is in the high temperature will melt in the internal use of the ink film, then melting in the cloth. To achieve “transfer” results. So the difference of adhesive transfer paper after washing Polyester will gradually fall off, resulting in fading. This transfer method is the most common method, almost covered more than 95%. So there is a requirement for the material, which must be Khmer material, cotton material or chemical fiber polyester material.

2. Solar UV Fading

Heat transfer products are easy to fade in the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, which is related to the offset heat transfer printing ink but has nothing to do with the transfer paper. Because the poor ink adds no anti UV agent and will fade quickly. The good quality ink can stay long time, but the sunlight will speed up the fade.

How To Choose the Right Industrial Heat Press for Sublimation? (1)

There are three main types of industrial heat press for sublimation, piece to piece, roll to roll and piece to roll heat press machine. Do you know how to choose the right one for sublimation?

Piece to piece: flat presses for printing substrates and fabrics in cut pieces

Roll to roll: calenders for printing continuous and reel-wound materials

Piece to roll: special calenders capable of operation in both modes (material in cut pieces and/or in rolls)

Industrial Heat Press

1. PIECE TO PIECE
Wide range of conventional hot plate presses for sublimation and transfer printing

1) Presses for Special Applications
* Vacuum presses guaranteeing optimum penetration of inks on materials such as lycra or stretch fabrics, carpets, mugs and flags
* Presses able to print both sides of an item simultaneously (stockings and tights, seamless)
* Special presses designed for printing on hard substrates such as glass, metal, plastic, wood, ceramic tiles
* Presses equipped with special options for bonding films/webs and for foils/special effects

2) Other Fundamental Elements
* eco-friendly process (no solvents whatever, and no use of water)

Do You Know The Importance of Spare Parts Of Rotary Heat Press?

Everyone knows that the rotary heat press is a final material in the whole sublimation transferring process so it must play a very important role. If you can’t operate it in a right way, all the operations above will be destroyed.

For such a large transfer machine, it must have many important spare parts, so that it can maintain the normal operation of the machine. While do you know what should you take care about the spare parts when you buy and operate your machine? Read the following and I will share you more.

1. Blanket

The blanket is a very important accessory for the roll heat press machine. It is similar to the print head for your sublimation digital inkjet printer. Because the heat press is just a process for you to transfer the patterns from the sublimation paper onto the fabric. So the patterns transferred is the final result to check the effect.

The role of the blanket is to help you correct the deviation in your transfer process. Sometimes in a long transfer process, the fabric and the sublimation paper may get to a wrong direction when transfer, then the patterns will get a worse effect.

2. Roll of The Machine

The heat and temperature in the transfer process is freed by the roll. So if your roll has poor quality, the temperature may can’t be spread completely. Make sure your roll is a good seamless tube roller, so that when you transfer the tempareture and pressure is average. Also with this high quality can help you save your power.

3. Steel plate

A high quality rotary heat press machine must made by the high quality steel plate. The high quality steel has high density then patterns heated and transferred will have a high accuracy. Can help you reduce the error.

4. Lathe of Your Machine

Make sure if your lathe has a high quality, a good lathe is also very important. It can bring you a better produce effect. Especially in the rotary heat transfer, it can gairantee the working efficiency of the blanket and avoid the wrong direction.

Okay, these all above are some important spare parts for your calender heat press machine. Make sure the quality of the spare parts and your transfer effect will be better in the future. Of course if you have any other needs or questions welcoem to contact us at any time. We will provide you with the best quality product and service. Hope my article can be useful to you. Thank you for your reading.
