Tips of Using Rotary Heat Press Machine

Depending on the application, rotary heat press is available with various drum sizes and different working widths. This machine is a high grade heat transfer printing equipment that plays an important role in the process of sublimation printing. And the price of a heat press always is expensive, so please pay attention to some precautions when we use it.

1. Spread butter on bearings every 3 months to make sure the calender heat press runs well.

2. When the heat transfer machine happens an unexpected power failure under high-temperature condition, we need to adjust the space between the blanket and the roller. Note that the distance should be 5-8cm.

2. To prevent the blanket from the damage of continuous high temperature, the rotary heat press machine must keep running.

4. When we first use a heat press, the high temperature can cause concern and the temptation is to lower it to play safe. If we do this, we will find that it simply isn’t pressing properly. If we trust the guidelines, we will have far better results and we will soon get the confidence to work at high temperatures.

5. It’s a good idea to do a test press first so we can adjust any settings of the machine before you print for real. Either use an old fabric so that we can check for any design faults in our pattern.

How long does a heat press machine last?

A good quality heat press machine lasts almost forever. It can reliably serve you for a pretty long time, anywhere from 10 to 20 years, with minimal issues.

However, you might be forced to replace your old machine before time to enable you to enjoy the latest technology and features in a modern heat press unit.

Generally, a heat transfer machine can print on just any t-shirt fabric, except for the heat-sensitive ones.

Some of the fabrics you can safely print on with a heat press include cotton, polyester, cotton/polyester blends, and canvas.

If you’re printing on t-shirts containing synthetic materials, such as polyester, you’d want to keep the time and temperature low to ensure you don’t scorch the end product.

For tri-blend tees (these usually contain polyester, rig spun cotton, and rayon), heat pressing on them can be pretty challenging due to the presence of heat-sensitive rayon, which can easily scorch when exposed to high heat.

ALWAYS make sure you understand the materials used to make a given t-shirt before heat pressing it.


Final Verdict

A heat press calender is a worthy investment for both businessmen and homeowners.

Regardless of what you intend to use your machine for, however, it’s essential to take your time to asses and compare different models to ensure you get the best heat press machine that lives up to your unique needs and expectations.

Things you will need –

Hat press machine
Heat vinyl
Weeding tool
Cutting tool
Cutting board
The hat

Step 1
The first step is to make a desirable design. You can make the design using a graphic designing software, or download a design from the internet. Be sure to observe the calibrations. The measurements of the design should match with the hat.

Print the design onto a heat transfer vinyl. Alternatively, you can make the design using an electronic cutting machine. It allows you to design and cut according to your pattern.

Take the cutting board and lay the design on it. Then cut the design using a weeding tool and cut out the vinyl parts that you don’t want appearing on the design. Make sure you mirror the design. As it will be placed on the reverse side on the sublimation transfer machine, make it comes from the right side.

Step 3
Check the heat settings on the cap heat press machine; make sure it’s okay. Place the cap on the heat press and use a handle to secure it. You can stretch the cap to make it fit well on the curved frame of the tool. Place a career sheet onto the design.

Step 4
Now place the final design onto the press machine and position it precisely. Pull down the heated panel onto the cap. The digital display will count down the time.

How to Use a Heat Press Machine Well?

You might know how to use a heat press machine, but do you know how to use it well? The heat press is an easy machine to learn, but like every machine, there are little tricks and quirky factors that determine the unit’s quality.

This section will go over different tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your heat transfer machine, so read on to learn about how to use your heat press in the best way possible:

Load Your Materials Correctly

To get the best result from the heat transfer machine, you need to make sure you straighten the garment during the loading process. The fabric shouldn’t be wrinkled at all if you want to get a clear, even image. Even if you carefully load a wrinkled garment, the design will come out crooked.

The best way to make sure your garment is straight is to align the material with the back of the heat press and then go to the section that will put the laser to your material. It is also important to stretch your material to make sure the design doesn’t come out with cracks in it.

The transfer paper you are using should be a good match with the material and design of your heat press calender. There is a range of different transfer papers you can choose from, including inkjet and laser, and you need to get the right type for your specific heat press.

Also, remember to consider the color of your material, because the transfer paper for a white garment will look different from the transfer paper you’ll use for a green garment.

Test Printing on Your Heat Press Machine

When possible, it’s best to test. You can use spare material or a piece of transfer paper to get a good idea of what your design will look like on the material you will actually be using.
