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.

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.

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

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 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.

Heat Press Machine: Control of Time and Temperature

A heat press machine is used to transfer designs to many different which utilizes three basic principles print our graphics on textile. These principles are time, pressure, and temperature. We need to set these aspects to the recommend accurate values before we start printing on our fabric. Make a slight mistake in the settings, and we will end up with an improperly printed textile, or a crooked printing.

Generally, our heat transfer machine comes with directions of use. These guidelines incorporate a chart that gives us full details about the correct time, pressure, and temperature values to use for different fabrics. Additionally, we’ve broken down the suitable temperature and time settings based on various factors:

Material Temperature/ Degree Time/ Minute
Polyester 270 10
Multi-Purpose fabrics 350 10-12
Cotton and denim 380 15
Stretch fabric 335 12-24
High quality graphic 305 5
T-shirts / Sweaters 365-370 10-12
Full color graphic 350 10-12
Vintage / Faded look 350 10
Reflective 305 10
Glow in the Dark transfer 350 10-20
Glitter / textured designs 350 15
Metallic look 320 10
Difficult fabrics 330 15

sublimation printing ( Note: Due to the versatility of a heat press machine, and the multiple uses it has, we may find that the item you want to print comes in two different categories. For example, we may want to use a glitter design on a t-shirt. In cases like this, try the lower temperature first, as using too much heat can damage the overall design.)

What Role does Heat Press Calender Play for Sublimation Printing?

Heat press calender is a large machine which is essential during the process of sublimation printing. It is used along with large printers that imprint designs or images on garments, such as polyester, polyamides. Today’s post will introduce what kind of role does heat press machine play for sublimation printing.

heat press calender

Sublimation is a technology that transfers the desired image on fabrics. The heat transfer calender is the last executant of this process which makes use of the heat and pressure which a piece of equipment creates. And with a lot of heat and pressure, the calender imprints your 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.

If you are going to start your business of a high-quality sublimation printing , you will need to purchase a heat press which helps you run high-volume production simultaneously. A good heat press can work for many years and continue operating in line with the increased production capacity.

Heat press calender plays a vital role by allowing the sublimation ink to permeate the fabric appropriately. 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, please make a point of stretching it. This helps prevent your prints from cracking.)

Some Useful Tips about Rotary Heat Press Machine

Rotary heat press machine is a large format machine which is a designing device which transfers a graphic design on a substrate. The usage of calender has became a modern way to make various garments look attractive. And today’s article will share you something you should know about it.

Rotary Heat Press Machine

Applying Too Much Heat
As we all known, the process of heat transfer printing requires a lot of heat, so never be scared of using a lot it to transfer the artwork to your fabrics appropriately. Because if you don’t use enough heat, you might end up with your design not sticking properly which may cause an issue during washing. Therefore, the rule is just follow the temperature settings recommended on your transfer paper.

Choosing The Right Fabric
Note that not all fabrics are suitable for heat press printing. Any garment that melts when put on a hot surface (i.e, heat sensitive materials) should never be heat printed on. And the most popular fabrics for roll to roll heat transfer machine include nylon, spandex, cotton, polyester, and Lycra.

Heat Transfer Printing Positioning Your Garment Properly
None of your clients will buy/wear crooked cloths! And to prevent that from happening, always make sure that the the sublimation transfer paper is correctly aligned to the back of your fabric.

ALWAYS Test Print
Before you can print your design from dye sublimation paper to your fabric, always make sure you test it by simply printing it on an old garment. This step will give you an idea of how your end product will look like after printing.

Heat Press MachineOne More Tip
Before placing your garment on a  rotary heat press machine for printing, always make a point of stretching it. This helps prevent your prints from cracking.

What is Dye Sublimation Printing?What Do You Need for It?

what is dye sublimation printing?Now,I share you something about it —— Dye Sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks. These inks turn into gas under the influence of heat and combine with a polyester medium. Since the ink becomes part of the structure of the material, the images on the fabric don’t fade or crack – even after multiple washings.

Then what do you need for it?You need various items to create sublimated textiles including flags, displays, sportswear, fashion, interior decoration and much more.

1. Printer and ink

A high-quality printer equipped with sublimation inks is essential. The Oric and Epson printer that are specifically designed for sublimation printing. The printers are available with Texart ink in four (CMYK) or eight colours (C,M,Y,BK,LC, LM). These inks have many colour-giving elements and are highly concentrated, which is necessary to create beautiful, vivid and crisp images.

2. Software

You also need a software to control your printer and to manage your print jobs. Therefore, when you invest in a printer, you are sure that you also have the ideal software at your disposal to run your machine. It has a perfect colour management and a multi-colour engine .

3. Transfer paper (sublimation paper)

To create high-quality sublimation prints, you need a transfer paper that has high ink absorption and dries quickly. The paper needs to stay flat and may not wave after printing. It is also important that the paper releases the ink when heating. The Sublimation transfer Paper does all that and is therefore the perfect paper for your sublimation prints.

4. Calender

Printing is only the first step of the dye sublimation process. For sublimation to take place, you need heat and pressure. Heat presse machine come in a variation of sizes and shapes, but you need a calender for roll-to-roll sublimation. Our company offers many kinds heat press, with a professional calender system that is fast, affordable and easy to use, making it a perfect finishing partner for the sublimation printers.

5. Textile

When choosing a textile for sublimation printing, it is important that you take a polyester fabric that is pre-shrunk. This avoids shrinking when heat is applied.

6. Laser Cutting Machine

For printing products you also need a Laser Cutting Machine. With a laser, cutting your fabrics and textiles to size can be done with both efficiency and ease. Laser engraving your materials can provide both a tactile effect and unparalleled high-quality finish. Whether your application is cutting unique and fine detailed shapes out of polyester, or engraving on a wide variety of other materials, laser engraving machines offer nearly endless design possibilities. Even applications with synthetic substances can be laser engraved, as these types of materials react very well during processing. Laser machines are ideal for processing polyester, because they perfectly seal the edges once heat is applied from the laser beam, and the material is left without any fraying.
