What Should We Pay Attention to When Using a Textile Heat Press Machine?

The textile heat press machine is a large machine which plays an essential role during the process of sublimation printing. Therefore, we need to pay attention to some factors that will affect the result of our products when we use it.

textile heat press machine

1. Temperature and time

In this process, the rotary heat press machine requires temperature control in the 180 ℃ ~ 230 ℃ range, and the time is about 10 ~30s, while paying attention to the reasonable allocation of temperature and time.

Sublimation transfer technology, the key material mainly by disperse dyes, connecting materials, solvents and a small number of additives. Dye sublimation ink should have good sublimation transferability and permeability. And reached a certain degree of fastness indicators, the molecular weight of 23O ~ 380, sublimation temperature of 180 ℃ ~ 240 ℃ commonly used transfer printing dye anthraquinone dyes, azo dyes, and cationic dyes and so on.

calender heat press machine 3. Pressure

The pressure is also one of the important points when we use textile heat press machine. For example, if the pressure is too small, the gap between the fabric and the transfer paper is large, the yarn is round, the ink gas molecules collide with the air and escape, resulting in poor printing effect, while the ink is also easy But the pressure is appropriate, the yarn is flat and the transfer paper between the gap is appropriate, the transfer coloring effect is good, clear pattern, smooth lines Fine: If the pressure of calender heat press is too large, it is prone to deformation, fluff and heavy fabric morphological changes and other issues, resulting in rough and color rendering and other shortcomings. Therefore, the control of the transfer pressure on the printed pattern, clear pattern, visual effects and so very critical.

How to Choose a Industrial Heat Press Machine?

An industrial heat press machine (or simply “heat press”) is used to apply for large format fabrics. How do you pick the right rotary heat press?  Take your time and consider your goals, not just the price. And today’s article is to share how to choose the machine.

industrial heat press machineTwo key factors when choosing a rotary heat press machine are the diameter and the width of the drum. Drums can vary in diameter from 20 cm to 2 m+, and the wider the diameter of the drum, the higher the press’s production speed. This is because the substrate needs to be in contact with the heated drum for an average of 40 seconds to achieve effective sublimation. This means that it can pass twice as quickly over a 40 cm drum compared with a 20 cm drum due to the larger contact area.

There is also a wide range of drum widths available, from 400 mm (working width) to 5000 mm+. It makes sense to match the width of the drum to the width of your printer, or you could opt for a wider drum to future-proof your investment in the event that you move up to a wider printer at a later date.

sublimation heat transfer machineIn terms of production speed, a rotary heat press calender with a 35 cm drum will keep pace with two or three Mimaki JV33, TS34 or Epson 7000 printers. Traditionally, industrial heat press machine runs much faster than the printers. However, things are beginning to change with more productive digital printers coming onto the market. Our company has a printer that can print at up 400 m square per hour, and we need a 1 m drum heat press to keep up with it.

Our company is a machine manufacturer with over 10 years of experience producing industrial rotary heat press. We take care of each customer’s idea and, if necessary, our team can make the special size of rotary heat press machine for the customer. Any question, please contact us. Thank you for your reading

Why Do We Need Industrial Rotary Heat Press?

Industrial rotary heat press consists of a variety of features, but the most important include the device’s size, heat distribution, and textile alignment. And, today’s blog will introduce its advantages.

industrial rotary heat press

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 for 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.

roller drum transfer printing machine 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 presses should have at least one year warranty and five years on the heating element.

calender heat pressTextile 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.

Rotary Heat Press Machine: The Importance of Diameter of Drum

Oil heated rotary heat press machine is recommended for use in industrial printing, as the production of sportswear, yoga cloth… However, as we all know, the large format heat presses have different diameters of the drum, like 200mm, 420mm, 480mm, 600mm, 800mm… And today we are going to share the importance of it.

What does the diameter of the drum decide?

heat press calender

Smaller oil drums, for example, those of eight inches in diameter, contain less than two cubic feet of oil but still require a longer heat up and cool down than an electric press of even larger dimensions, which turns into higher power consumption.  Drum diameters vary from eight up to 55 inches and larger. The speed of heat transfer calender is dictated by the size of the drum and consistency of the heating element. The larger the drum diameter, the faster production speeds can be achieved. Of course, the larger the drum diameter, the higher price.

When do we need large drum diameter rotary heat press machine?

roller heating machine

If you are going to start your business of a high-quality and high-speed sublimation printing, you will need to purchase a heat transfer machine with large drum diameter which helps you run high-volume production simultaneously. A good oil heated calender machine can work for many years and continue operating in line with the increased production capacity. If your 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 rotary heat press machine and plan for business growth.
