Necessary Machines for Dye Sublimation Printing

If you are going to start your business of a high-quality dye sublimation printing, what machines do you need?

dye sublimation printing

The answer is : you will need to purchase a heat transfer machine firstly which helps you run high-volume production simultaneously.

calender heat pressA heat transfer machine plays an important role in the process of sublimation printing. Although they are available that vary in size and application, thet all function the same way: at 400 degree Fahrenheit, the calender simultaneously heats the digital ink on the sublimation transfer paper and the polymer fibers within the substrate, enabling the transfer of ink-to-media. When it cools, the heat is removed and the transfer paper is peeled off, leaving behind a permanent, full-color graphic on the substrate. A good calender can work for many years and continue operating in line with the increased production capacity. If you plan is to create large format signs and graphics for the long-term. A reliable large format press should last decades and fulfill an increasing sublimation output as your business and printing machinery grows. Invest in reliable quality heat press and plan for business growth.

Then you should buy a inkjet sublimation printer for your business of dye sublimation printing.

1. Turn on the power press the start button until the rope from the conduction band to send the heat press machine, check whether the patterns with the direction, diameter, etc., to be in line with the requirements, the process speed to the rotational speed of the position;
2. Product quality inspection;
3. The surface should be smooth with no defect, error-free yarn, less yarn, colored flowers, hemp belt, flat belt, stretching, insufficient diameter;
4. Check the operation of the machine, the plastic wire view, weft winding operation condition;
Holding above operation until the finished product.

1. Those who want to use electrical things should guarantee its insulation performance is good, so the weaving ribbon heat press machine should be interpolated using a three-wire power source as the channel that contacts the ground should be kept intact, the power supply voltage and current should follow the instructions strictly comply with the instructions;
2. After the boot should first check all the machines, the device can be operated normally;
3. When no operation should promptly disconnect the power, when people leave the machine should cut off the power;

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.

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.)

heat press That’s it for our complete heat press calender temperature guide. The list contains the ideal temperature and timer settings we should use for almost all the fabrics you might encounter when doing heat transfer. If we couple the above information with your device user manual, we will have all the information we need to operate our machine using the correct temperatures.
