To improve the reliability of printing unit.

Ink will not be infiltrated to the screen, the concentration is stable, suitable for high quality printing. Solvent is an important part of the screen printing ink local, different regions, temperature, humidity, ink performance is also different. Some people say that 90% of the screen printing process with the solvent. Roller drum heat press UV ink is free of volatile substances, ink viscosity change is very small, easy to operate, a good deal with these problems, so that a substantial improvement in print quality. In addition, due to the fast curing speed of the ink, shortening the residence time of the printed matter in the boring process, reducing the possibility of dust pollution.

Without volatile solvents, the human body and the environment is not a negative impact. At present, the screen printing ink from the output and species, the volatile dry solvent ink accounted for the mainstream. Because of its boring time is slow, in the boring process 60% of the solvent must be volatile, the environment pollution. Seeking pollution is small, dry fast, less energy consumption of ink, has become the printing industry common purpose.

3. Full Color: Use these settings to achieve a perfect, vivid color design. Temperature: 30 degrees F. Time: 10- 12 minutes.

4. Stretch: When heat transferring to fabric with many stretches such as swimwear, set your heat transfer Temperature settings to 33 degrees F and Time: 12-24 minutes.

5. Glitter: For a textured design, use Temperature: 350 degrees F and Time: 15 minutes.

6. Glow in The Dark: if you want to successfully transfer a design that glows in the dark after being exposed to light, you can set Temperature to 30 degrees F and Time to 10-12 minutes.

7. Basic T-shirts and Sweaters: use these settings… Temperature: 365-37 degrees F and Time: 10-12 minutes.

8. Difficult Garments: if you’ve got a stubborn fabric that you wish to print on use these settings. Temperature: 330 degrees F and Time: 15 minutes.

9. Metal-like Finish: if the design you intend to transfer with a heat press has a design that makes it appear metallic, you need to set your device Temperature at 320 degrees F and Time at 10 minutes.

10. High Quality: If the printing you’re transferring needs to be an extremely high definition (as well as full color), then you’ll to use these settings for a successful transfer. Temperature: 305 degrees F and Time: 5 minutes.

11. Photo Transfer (White): When transferring images onto a light colored fabric, use Temperature: 385 degrees F and Time: 25-30 minutes.

12. Photo Transfer (Dark): Use these settings when doing an image transfer onto a dark fabric. Temperature: 365 degrees F and Time: 25 minutes

Some Suggestions to You When Using a Roller Heat Press Machine

   Compared with flat heat press machine, roller heat press machine are usually applied to the industrial printing. We usually think roller heat press machine is harder to operate than the flat heat press machine. Then, what should we pay attention when using such a large machine?

Heat Pressing

   1. First, set an appropriate speed and temperature for the machine before starting. And make sure the temperature is stable when working.

   2. Adjust the pressure between the blanket and drum, make sure the pressure is suitable for the paper with different weight.

   3. Make sure the heat press surface, transfer paper and surface of substrate must be close, can not have gaps, otherwise it will make the transferred graphics blur.

   4. Make a test before mass production to make sure whether the speed and temperature are suitable.

   5. Try to clean the things immovably attached to the transfer paper and the textile, or it will influence the image’s quality after transfer printing.

   6. The sublimation paper should keep dry all the time. Too much moisture will affect the paper’s quality, and it will cause many problems in sublimation printing such as the direct of the image is sideling.

What Is the Perfect Heat Press Machine for You?

   When you buy a good inkjet printer at home, the next step is to find a perfect heat press machine (unless you want professional factory to help you). But how to make sure you can buy the heat press machine? heat press machine

   Size is the first factor. The size of the heat press machines are various on the market. You should know the size of your products, and it will be better to take the future into consideration.

   Consistent heat is an important indicator to judge the quality of the heat press machine. Heat presses need to be heated to about 400 degrees fahrenheit for sublimation inks to transfer from the paper to the polymer fibers. This transfer has to be smooth and even for the process to work properly and for the image transfer to be consistent from one pressing to the next. heat press machine      Consistent pressure is another indicator to just the heat press machine quality.  A quality heat press has a heavy platen that generates enough weighted-pressure

   Heat pressing is not a complex job, as long as you choose the suitable heat press machine, everything can be easier.

What are the color mixing methods of digital printing machine?

Digital printing refers to the printing of expected patterns and colors on textiles through digital technology. Digital printing is used for printing proofing and small batch production, both convenient and cost saving, which mainly saves the process and cost of plate making and network making. The key practical techniques for proofing and production of digital printing are color, graphics and color fastness. The expression of pattern can be achieved through color separation and design software. Color can be achieved through screen display, color card toning, color measurement, experience toning and other methods.

The following mainly introduces four kinds of digital printing machine toning method, for your reference.

1. Screen display. To adjust the color of an image by adjusting the color displayed on the screen, usually by selecting or adjusting the color on the screen through the color menu. This method is very useful when matching colors or starting to mix colors. It is a common method used by designers. However, because the hair color principle of fluorescent screen is different from the hair color principle of dyes on fabrics, the colors displayed on the screen cannot be fully expressed by dyes on fabrics, and the subtle differences between the colors displayed by dyes cannot be clearly displayed on the screen. Therefore, this is a general method of color mixing, and cannot be used as an exact color mixing.

2. Color card toning method. Adjust colors by comparing the colors in the color card.

3. Color measurement. With the help of color measuring instrument, the target color block is measured, and the color measurement results are input into the computer, and then the color is printed. This method USES instruments to determine color and thus excludes many human and environmental factors.

4. Empirical toning method. The speed of its toning process, the accuracy of the results completely depends on this need operators in the daily work of continuous analysis, accumulation.

Digital printing technology and traditional printing technology are two completely different printing mechanism, digital printing machine proofing has become the mainstream production mode in the western printing industry. At present, more than 90% of the printing enterprises in Europe have adopted digital printing machine for proofing. These enterprises generally believe that digital printing machine has rapid response, low cost and good consistency of proofing effect. Digital printing machine has become an indispensable tool for the printing industry in Europe.

How does the calender heat press complete heat transfer printing?

How does the calender heat press complete heat transfer printing? Clothing drum printing machine is one of the heat transfer printing machines. It can be divided into different types and prices according to the diameter of drum.

First of all, according to the situation of printing fabric, the temperature of the clothing roller printing machine is raised to a certain height, generally speaking, it is between 190 and 220 degrees.

At the same time, the fabric and paper needed for printing should be prepared. If it is a cutting piece, the lining paper should also be prepared to avoid the part of ink and pigment exposed during printing sticking to the fabric after high temperature and affecting the overall effect.

Then as long as the material and paper into the clothing roller printing machine, until the cloth out of the time has been completed printing, the whole process is very simple.

Advantages:

It can be said that the clothing roller printing machine is a good choice for heat transfer printing, not only has strong operability, but also has low cost. However, it should be noted that the pressure roller of the clothing roller printing machine is in the state of high temperature and pressure at work, so safety is the most important.

Applicable objects:

Clothing roller printing machine is suitable for sublimation transfer of large banners, flags, non-woven fabrics, clothing fabrics, towels, sheets, mouse pads and other products, especially for continuous transfer of pieces of cloth.

How to solve the transfer printing problem of natural fibers?

Because transfer printing has many advantages and the products produced are also of great commercial value, it has developed rapidly since it was put into production in the 1960s. However, because it is only suitable for synthetic fibers with clear glass transition temperature, its development is hindered and can not be applied to natural fibers. How to solve the transfer printing problem of natural fibers has become a hot research topic at home and abroad.

So far, the main solutions are as follows:

1) Grafting denaturation, such as acetylation, benzoylation, etc. This allows the fibers to accept disperse dyes.

2) Surface polymerization. This method is to polymerize macromolecule materials on the surface of fabrics, so as to accept disperse dyes like synthetic fibers, such as polyester method, styrene method and so on.

3) Fiber expansion. Expansion phenomena in amorphous region of heated polyester fibers were simulated and disperse dye gas was admitted. However, the fastness is insufficient due to the lack of fixation with fibers. So this method can only be used in conjunction with other methods of fixing dyes. Polyethylene glycol (200 molecular weight) is generally used for fiber extrusion. It is not only an extruder for cotton fibers, but also a solvent for disperse dyes.

The common feature of the above methods is that natural fibre fabrics must be pretreated before transfer printing, which increases the production process and cost. More importantly, in order to clean the remaining non-functional materials on fabrics, it is necessary to wash and dry them. In this way, it is impossible to eliminate wastewater discharge and increase the consumption of heating energy, which makes it difficult to get rid of the heavy burden of traditional printing and dyeing production.

This natural fiber transfer printing method does not retain the characteristics of synthetic fiber transfer printing method, and is difficult to be accepted by manufacturers. Some methods still leave harmful substances such as formaldehyde on fabrics, which do not meet the requirements of environmental protection. In addition, after printing, many fabrics migrate over time, resulting in blurred patterns. Therefore, although this method has been applied, it is not ideal. Others use spraying pretreatment liquid on the part of natural fiber clothing and printing after drying.
