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.

Some Common Questions About a Heat Transfer Machine

Looking for the best heat transfer machine that lets you create flawless, long-lasting imprints on t-shirts, caps, mugs, etc? However, do you know some questions about a heat transfer machine? Today we are going to talk about it.

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.

The above guide will equip you with all the info you need to easily navigate the saturated heat press market and find a model that serves your unique interests.

Our heat press machine reviews section has provided you with some of the most popular models you can find on the market today. Did you find a perfect heat press for your unique needs from this list?

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.

How To Operate a Roll to Roll Heat Press Machine?

As we all know, roll to roll heat press machine is a sublimation machine with running roller and bottom conveying that has a synchronous tooth that connects both the roller and bottom ironing cloth to ensure consistent operation.

The calender heat press machine has a three-meter long double-deck table with a conveyor belt at the bottom. Due to the structure of it, printing roll materials along with sheet materials, are done at ease. It’s an even convenient option for transferring the design to a large piece of material.

There is a cylinder that is heated by oil temperature. It ensures high-temperature precision, heat preservation control system, as well as proper sealing for the finest productions.

sublimation transfer machine How to Operate the Roll to Roll Heat Press Machine?

Although the design and construction seem complicated, operating such a heat press machine is quite easy. With some basic technical skills, anyone can operate the machine.

At first, you need to turn on the ‘power switch’ which is pretty much the same no matter what machinery you are handling. The next step is to turn on the ‘running switch’. It allows the roller to start rolling.

Then, before you put something on the belt to sublimate, adjust the speed governor to run the conveyor belt slowly. Also, adjust the temperature controller to the required setting. Finally, turn on the ‘heating switch’ to make everything suitable to start working.

The roller will start to heat up. During summer, it will take 20 to 30 minutes; and 30 to 40 minutes in winter. The general hot stamping temperature is 1350; you need to adjust the temperature as per your projects require.

For air pressure selection, you need to adjust the ‘pressure regulating valve’ and ‘tension control valve’ on the left and right sides to ensure appropriate pressure.
