What’s The Rotary Drum Heat Press?

Rotary heat press, also known as a calendar transfer machine, is used to transfer dye-sublimation prints onto a fabric. 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 rotary press and a cut part rotary press.

Heat transfer 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 press is used to transfer your designs on to a roll of fabric. The items you will need with a roll-to-roll rotary press 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 rotary machines 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.

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.

Heat transfer printing felts also called Nomex endless Felt, Calender heat press felt, sublimation heat press blanket, It is made of 100% nomex. They are the most important component of the heat transfer printing machines which print the pattern from paper to fabric helping with pressure and temperature.

 

The quality of the blanket printing machine affects the quality and effect of the transfer. The blanket, as an important component of the roller printing machine, is not the body of the diamond, and the life of our blanket is usually about 2 years. However, the improper deformation of the worker often causes the felt to become deformed, dirty, burnt or burnt.

Heat transfer printing felts can offer heat transfer printing felt with original and special dimensions for every brand heat transfer printing machines and household textiles ironing machines.

Dangerous Operations When We Are Using Calender Heat Press

Calender heat press is often used to print fabric, like T-shirts, Sportswear, Curtain… As we all know, there are two kinds of heat press machine in the market: rotary drum heat press and platen heat press.  Both of them should use a lot of heat in the process of sublimation transfer printing. If we operate the machine incorrectly, it will occur some accidents. Therefore, today’s article will introduce some tips to avoid dangerous operations.

  1. The heating tubes in the heating drum easily got break and oil leaking occured because the different expansion rate from heating tubes to heating drum body. It is head ache problem for end users.

 

  1. After one or two years production, the conduct oil got oxidized. It changes into sticky mud like things, poor flowing ability, so temperature difference on different parts of heating drum happened easily while it is the key element to keep the same color shade on transfer printing process.

 

  1. So you need to change all oxidized oil by fresh oil. First of all, the oxidized oil can not be removed through from the heating drum since they are sticking on the wall inside of the heating drum closely. Secondly, how do you deal with those mud like oxidized oil when they are harmful to environment.

Platen Type Heat Press vs. Rotary Drum Heat Press

Nowadays heat transfer printing has gained significant importance and favor in several industries – especially in the apparel industry as an alternative for printing fabric in an agile manufacturing environment.

Applications of Heat Transfer

Point of purchase banners, signage, displays, skirting, carpeting, etc.
Advertising specialties – mouse pads, wrist pads, beverage insulators, clip boards, etc.
Ceramic tiles, wall murals and interior design
Snow skis, snow boards, cycling helmets, in-line skates, water sports equipment
Gaming tables , chips
Lettering, Rhinestones/crystals
Uni-sub wood, clipboards, plaques, signage, vending machines message boards, table tops, counter tops, flooring, etc.
Microfiber based sports apparel, T-shirts, caps, swimsuits, jackets, tote bags, cut apparel parts, large format textiles, etc.

rotary drum heat press

Heat transfer machine is of two types: Platen type heat press and rotary drum heat press

1. Platen Type Heat Press

Platen presses are often used for printing on individual pieces such as cut apparel parts, T-shirts, sports apparel, tote bags, etc. Platen presses are also used to print on rigid substrates such as wood, metals and ceramic tiles.

2. Rotary Drum Heat Press

These machines are often used to print fabric continuously (roll to roll) and to print large fabric parts such as signs and banners which may be too large for a standard platen press. Drum machines can also be used to print sports apparel and other cut apparel parts. Drum machines are more productive than platen machines for sublimation printing on cut apparel parts and are therefore used when production volume is high. Drum machines are not used however to print onto rigid substrates such as wood, metal or ceramic tile.

The right machine depends on the type of product to be printed, the print size and the production requirements. If you wish to print full coverage on 60″ wide goods, you would need to use a Rotary Drum machine. T-shirts, mugs, wood or tile are best printed on a platen machine. Cut apparel parts can be printed on either a platen press or a rotary drum machine. Production requirements often dictate which type of machine is used. Banners and soft signage are often printed on a rotary drum machine.
