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.

Roller heat transfer machine on some of the ink layer thickness, the substrate is common, simple and sensitive operation. Ordinary solvent ink, ink solid content of about 40%, and UV ink solid content after curing close to 100%, 2 to 5 times the ordinary ink. If you use thick film screen printing UV ink, the effect is better.

Technology is through the dye on the external force, so that the dye spray through the nozzle to the fabric to form a color point. Digital radiation or digital radiation of the drum heat press is a kind of radiation technology of digital image technology. The digital printing technology controls the radiation and non-spray of the nozzle and the movement in the xy direction, and can form the corresponding accurate image on the printed medium.

Certain heat press machines offer you a temperature range that you can adjust to accommodate a wide variety of fabrics, including the heat sensitive ones.

Usually, the temperature settings go hand in hand with the time setting and vary from dark to light colored clothes. When pressing light colored fabrics, you can simply set your temperature at around 360 degrees for up to 25 minutes.

For the dark colored fabric, consider using a temperature setting of around 330 degrees and timing for around 25 minutes.

These values are subject to variations depending on several factors such as the type of fabric you’re working on. Below, we’ve broken down the suitable temperature and time settings based on various factors:

1. Sublimated (Polyester) fabrics: If you’re working on polyester fabrics, you’re highly advised to observe low temperatures. The ideal value should be Temperature: 270 degrees F and Time: 10 minutes.

2. Vintage Look: if you want the image to be printed to look old, faded, you can achieve that by using these settings: Temperature: 350 degrees F and Time: 10-12 minutes.

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

13. Reflective: What if you’re printing in a reflective fabric, e.g. safety gear? Well, this technique will work best. Temperature: 305 degrees F and Time: 10-12 minutes

Most of the modern heat press machines on the market today come with digital temperature and timer settings which make it easier for you to make more accurate settings.

The Common Mistakes You Can Avoid in Heat Pressing

   As a supplier of roller heat press machine, we find that there are some common problems in using this machine according to our customers’ feedback.Now we will list some of them, wish it can help you.

   Heat transfer printing

   1. Not using the right sublimation paper
   For sublimation paper, different factories have their own standards, even you tell them the same specifications you want, they may give you different products. Besides, sublimation paper can be divided into low weight transfer paper and heavy weight sublimation paper, or fast dry sublimation paper and sticky sublimation paper, they are produc

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.
