Roll-To-Roll Heat Transfer Machine vs. Cut Parts Rotary Press

rotary heat transfer machineA rotary heat press, also known as a calendar transfer machine, is used to continuingly transfer dye-sublimation prints onto a fabric. Machines like this are used in many types of applications. You can use it for printing fabric rolls, creating signage, producing flags, working with cut part pieces for cut-and-sew apparel, and even for making pieces of ribbon or long straps.

Rotary presses are typically manufactured two different ways and come in widths that range from 10–220″. The two types of presses are referred to as a roll-to-roll heat transfer machine and a cut part rotary press (the latter features a table).

1. Roll-to-roll heat transfer machine
This type of rotary press is used to transfer your designs on to a roll of fabric. The items you will need with a roll-to-roll heat transfer machine include pre-printed transfer paper, tissue paper, and fabric. The pre-printed transfer paper has a slight tackiness to it, and it’s used to hold the fabric in place. The tissue paper keeps the sublimation ink from getting on to the belt that goes around the drum. The fabric you use will always be composed of polyester, a polyester blend, or some other kind of polyester-coated substrate. Roll-to-roll heat transfer machine typically come with three unwinds and three rewinds. The three items listed above are loaded onto the unwind rods of the rotary press. They come together and go through the press, looping around the heated drum. This part of the process is called the “dwell time,” and this is where the sublimation process happens. The rewind rods then roll up the now-printed fabrics, the used transfer paper, and used tissue paper.

2. Cut parts rotary press
This type of rotary heat press is used to transfer your design on to pre-cut pieces of fabric, but it can also create rolls of fabric. You still need pre-printed transfer paper and tissue paper for this kind of rotary press, as well as your cut pieces of fabric. Cut parts rotary presses have a table attached to the front of the press, giving your production team the ability to lay down pre-cut fabrics on to the pre-printed transfer paper. The pre-printed transfer paper is loaded on the unwind rod and fed into the heated drum area. The cut parts are laid down on the pre-printed transfer paper and fed into the printer. A press that is set up for cut part application typically comes with three unwinds and three rewinds as well. This affords the press the ability to operate like a roll-to-roll heat transfer machine if needed.
​​
Specialized rotary press accessories are available, but they are optional items. For example, if you are working with ribbons or straps, you can purchase a rotary press that has webbing features. Some manufacturers have this as an optional item to add on when purchasing your press.

As with all new equipment, there will be a learning curve until you feel comfortable using your machine. Feel confident knowing that this is a low learning curve, and it’s just a small matter of time before you’re a master at operating your rotary press. Three basic variables affect your results: heat, pressure, and time. Some ink manufacturers give a recommendation on the dwell time. Based on that recommendation, you will need to experiment by adjusting the temperature and time to achieve ideal results.

A Guideline to Use A Heat Press to Design and Print Your Own Unique T-shirt

rotary heat transfer machineHeat transfer stands out as a modern, effortless, and flexible method of printing your artwork onto t-shirts. If you want to know how to heat press a t-shirt then you can read our guideline.

 

Designing clothes have evolved and it has become a great alternative to the classic screen printing. Heat transfer gives your shirt or any garment a neat and nice look. You can be sure of getting that awesome design printed on your shirt exactly the way it looks on the screen.

 

rotary heat transfer machineThe concept of heat transfer is very simple; all you need is a heat press machine, an inkjet printer with regular printer inks or T-shirt inks. The paper used for heat presses in T-shirt printing is called carrier paper.

 

This carrier paper has a film on it. The unprinted part of this sheet has to be trimmed using a vinyl cutting machine before printing, and the transfer paper is then placed on the shirt and heated in a heat press with medium to high pressure.

 

Whether you are using a basic or sophisticated heat transfer machines, heat press machines basically function and operate the same way. Here’s a step-by-step instruction on how to use a heat press machine:

 

  • Turn on the machine by pressing the on/off switch
  • Turn the thermostat knob to the right until you can see the red heating light.
  • Turn the knob back to the left until the heating light turns off when the thermometer indicates the desired temperature for your transfer, The red heating light will turn on and off at intervals to regulate your desired temperature.
  • Set the heating time by pressing your digital timer if your machine has one. Press stop to reset when you hear the alarm.
  • Open the press by lifting the handle
  • Lay the transfer onto the spot you want the design to appear on the paper.
  • Close the machine against your fabric and the transfer and lock it firmly.
  • Set the timer based on the instructions you see on your transfer paper.
  • Lift the handle to open the machine.
  • Peel the transfer paper off the face of your shirt. You should read the instructions to know whether it is a “hot peel” or “cold peel” paper.
  • Wait for at least 24 hours before washing.

How to Make Your Heat Press Get the Best Results?

rotary heat transfer machineIn the heat press business of printing, the need to constantly create designs that are innovative and high quality mostly depends on the kind of heat press machines that you select to get the job done.

Here’s a step by step process on how to heat press for great results:

1. The Right Heat Press for Mugs
Ideally, mugs can be pressed with a combo multi attachment mug heat press that has a separate attachment for the specific mug shape you using including standard 11 and 15 oz mugs, water bottles, steins, latte mugs and/or pint glasses. Other than that, you could go with one that is specifically designed for standard mugs. Use sublimation glass, ceramic or metal mugs for the best results.

2. Design the Image`
Using specialized software, design the graphic that you want printed. Make sure you reverse the digital image using the image editing software.

sportswear printing3. Print Image Using Sublimation Paper
Using the sublimation paper, you will need to imprint the graphical image on the mug. Make sure the colors are right. Send the image to be printed on your sublimation printer, then trim the extra sublimation paper to form the shape of your graphical design.

4. Transfer Image to Mug
Apply the right pressure on the mug, so that it sits securely. Next, set your heat press to the proper temperature. Throughout this time, make sure you take safety measures and wear protective gloves while dealing with the heat press equipment. Place the design face-down on the mug, and make certain it stays securely over it with heat resistant tape. When the heat press is ready, place pressure on the mug to imprint the image.

Once the printing is accomplished, peel off the sublimation transfer paper off the mug. You could also immediately submerge it in lukewarm water for it to cool off.

Why Use A Heat Press for Transfer Printing?

Today, I will make a analyze 5 reasons for why you need a heat press for transfer printing.

rotary heat transfer machine

1. Accurate pressure and temperature: In just one heat press application, your design is fully applied to a substrate at both an even and heavy pressure and a consistent and hot temperature. You don’t have to worry about applying the same amount of pressure with each swipe of the iron or guessing whether you ironed every inch of the design.

2. Longer lasting designs: Using a heat press helps ensure a proper release of the transfer paper design, which increases the design’s washability.
Average washes with a heat press: 10+ washes
Average washes with an iron: 7+ washes

3. Less application time: Heat press in a matter of seconds versus minutes of ironing.
Average heat pressing time: 14-16 seconds
Average ironing time: 90-120 seconds

4. Versatility: Expand the types of transfer paper and other heat transfer materials you can use to decorate.

5. Consistency: Imagine the decorating process as a mini assembly line in your craft room with equipment a major factor in production quality. With a reliable piece of equipment (i.e, a heat press), you end up with a consistent end-product each time. Using an iron allows for so much variation and inconsistency, which limits quality control (and increases frustration).

What’s the Difference Between Thermal Transfer Printing Machine And Heat Press Machine?

heat press machineThermal transfer printing machines are also known as thermal transfer printing. Thermal transfer printing is an emerging printing process. With its advantages of convenience, speed, dexterity and environmental protection, thermal transfer printing technology has made revolutionary breakthroughs in the field of textile and garment printing and dyeing, and is favored by garment enterprises from all walks of life.

The heat transfer machine is one of the thermal transfer printing machines. It can be used to heat all kinds of hot stamping on cotton, linen, chemical fiber and other fabrics. It can also be processed by screen printing, glue, foaming, etc. Cultural shirts, etc.

Thermal transfer printing machines are also known as thermal transfer printing. Thermal transfer is a combination of traditional printing and computer digital, which overcomes the shortcomings of traditional printing, such as small batches, rapid delivery of finished products, complex colors, complicated process, and environmental protection. Thermal transfer does not require plate making, is not limited by pattern, color limit, one-time molding, unlimited style, simple operation, complete functions, just as simple as using a home printer, which largely compensates for the traditional printing and dyeing of cotton fabrics. The industry lacks water resources, environmental damage, high cost of small batch printing and high equipment costs. At the same time, it also brought a strong blow to the development of the traditional printing and dyeing printing industry.

sublimation printing

Advantages: simple printing steps, accurate position, natural color transition, free printing pattern can realize any pattern printing process, the printing effect is realistic and fine, no need to save the plate making cost, and it is also suitable for printing in traditional way such as rotary net and flat net. Pre- proofing saves money.

WHAT IS HEAT PRESS MACHINE OR HEAT TRANSFER MACHINE?

When I was not familiar with the digital printing industry, I thought that the heat press machine and the heat transfer machine were two different machines, but later I realized that this was not the case. Today, I will introduce what is a heat press machine.

rotary heat transfer machine

A heat press machine is a machine engineered to imprint a design or graphic on a substrate, such as a t-shirt, with the application of heat and pressure for a preset period of time. While heat presses are often used to apply designs to fabrics, they can also be used to imprint designs on mugs, plates, jigsaw puzzles, and other products.

Both manual and automatic heat presses are widely available. A new style of press that is semi-automatic has entered the market as well, allowing for a manual closing process with an automatic opening. Digital technology in newer machines enables precise control of heat and pressure levels and timing. The most common types of heat press employ a flat platen to apply heat and pressure to the substrate.

rotary heat transfer machineIn the “clamshell” design, the upper heat element in the press opens like a clamshell, while in the “swing-away” design, the heat platen swings away from the lower platen.

Another design type a “draw style press” allows for the bottom platen to be pulled out like a drawer away from the heat for preparation of the graphic. Vacuum presses utilise air pressure to provide the necessary force and can achieve high psi ratings.

Most heat presses currently on the market use an aluminum upper-heating element with a heat rod cast into the aluminum or a heating wire attached to the element. For high-volume operations involving the continuous imprinting of items, automatic shuttle transfer presses are used. The substrates to be imprinted are continuously loaded onto the lower platen and shuttled under the heat platen, which then applies the necessary heat and pressure.

The pattern is printed in sublimation ink on sublimation paper which allows the pattern to transfer. You can get some highly effective patterns and great effects using this technique.

WHAT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED WITH HEAT TRANSFERRING?

In order to start your heat transfer printing, there are few things you need to acquire. They are affordable and come in different types depending on your purpose.

1. Heat press machine

These comes in different sizes and with different prices. Also, some are unique for some kind of designs. So get the one that matches your need.

Also, check the temperature at the edges and the middle of the plate to be sure that the temperature is uniform. This is to make sure that the designs don’t peel off due to inefficient transfer.

Heat press machine is different in sizes and affordability. If you are starting out newly, go for the simple and cheaper ones. When the business starts growing, get the professional machines that have bigger platen for heat transfers on a large material.

These professional heat transfer machines also have unique features like temperature and time settings, pressure and bigger platen for bulk printing.

2. Inkjet printer

A printer is used to print out your designs, artwork or logo on the paper you will use for the heat transfer. There is a reason why I prefer the inkjet printer to Laser printers.

  • Inkjet printers will produce excellent heat transfer than laser printers.
  • Not all laser jet printers can produce good heat transfer designs.
  • Inkjet printers are more affordable compared to laser jet

Don’t forget to buy your Printer inks/t-shirt ink depending on your choice.

 

3. Carrier paper

This is the paper you will use for the heat transfer on the t-shirt. It usually has a film on one side where your design will be printed on. Be sure to buy the professional carrier grade type instead of the regular paper you see everywhere.

Remember, your choice of transfer paper will also affect your output. However, there are some things you need to check before you purchase a heat transfer paper.

  • Buy a transfer paper vinyl type that has a soft hand after transfer and after washing. It will have enough film to make your designs or images stick to your t-shirt. So you should avoid any paper that feels like a cardboard paper when you touch it.
  • If you want to print on a white t-shirt or any other light colored garment, the choice of the paper to buy will be the clear transfer paper.
  • On dark or deep colored t-shirts, buy an opaque transfer paper.

Believe me, you don’t want to use opaque paper on white and clear paper on dark materials. That will certainly create confusion.

WHY SHOULD YOU INVEST IN A HIGH QUALITY HEAT PRESS?

When shopping for a high quality heat press machine or t-shirt printers there are several things to look for, such as a timer, temperature gauge and the weight of the press. A good and efficient press must have a digital control complete with these features. These are the reasons a business or a person, taking it as a hobby, should invest in a quality heat press.

  1. Cost-effective

Investing in a good heat press will yield profits for your work in the long run. With a machine which can handle a high volume of work, you can create lots of printed T-Shirts. The machines are designed to handle small and large volumes of work, depending on the type.

  1. Easy to use

Quality heat presses are easy to use. Those with no prior experience are able to learn fast when they have access to a good heat press. The technology applied in their manufacturing and control is easily grasped during the process of using it. They take relatively little space and are efficient.

  1. Speed

heat transfer printingThe speed of a heat press makes it attractive. It is fast and produces many printed objects compared to other graphics printing machines. A heat press machine has a control panel which does not require much energy to operate and creates results quickly.

  1. Quality production

It prints electronically and quickly without undermining the quality. The heat press is able to make complete and even transfers on the substrates by application of temperature up to 500°F.

  1. Versatile

High-quality machines are versatile, in that, they can produce on different materials and fabrics, for example, satin and cotton. They can also work on hard materials, such as ceramic tiles. These allow them to work on mugs, tiles, umbrellas and other products with much ease. Their versatility is a huge advantage for businesses and people who want to try out different designs and prints.

  1. Integrated techniques

Heat presses can use integrated techniques—you can use a heat press machine with other printing techniques such as the use of ink. This prevents any form of hindrance. These are the advantages of high-quality heat press machines.

However, heat presses, especially the high-quality ones, are very expensive to buy and set up. But it’s not true that cheap heat presses are worst. The heat press cannot layer colors on fabrics because they will become bulky and heavy.

WHAT’S THE ROLE OF HEAT TRANSFER MACHINE IN PRINTING INDUSTRY?

Heat transfer machine is also a thermal transfer printer, used in the printing industry, then compare other printing technology? What are the advantages of heat transfer machine? Now, let’s make a simple understanding.

 

Heat transfer machine is equipped with sublimation ink printer. Heat transfer machine for making clothes when used for printing to transfer the map.

The advantages of thermal transfer printing: typical is as the technology matures and the popularity of thermal transfer printer price dropped to the general public are obviously acceptable, but there are a lot of people do not know the price, now add printing supplies, direct printing has been actually printing costs cheaper than.

 

There are two main modes of heat transfer code: batch mode and continuous mode:

 

Intermittent mode: the packaging film moves after the stop, the print head is lowered and starts to move along the packaging film and the ribbon, which is the print head begins to print.

 

Continuous mode: packaging film is constantly moving, beginning when the packaging film is triggered, and the ribbon accelerated to speed and film the same, when the print head is reduced, began to print, to be printed at the end of the print head will be restored to its original position, the ribbon will stop moving.
