Why You Need a Heat Press Machine for Mugs?

rotary heat transfer machineA heat press for mugs is a machine that is specially designed for printing artwork/graphics onto a mug. With this machine, you can get full color, sharp and vibrant images on your favorite coffee or travel mug. Today, I will briefly introduce some useful knowledge about mug heat press machine.

1.Why You Need a Heat Press Machine?

Numerous upcoming entrepreneurs are recognizing that ‘customized printed mugs’ is a lucrative business idea. Also, it enjoys an exceptional demand in huge corporate organizational setups. If you’re looking to create customized printed mugs for your business, it would be a good idea to buy a high-quality heat press machine, designed especially for mug printing.

Besides professional use, mug heat press machines can also be utilized for personal reasons at home. For instance, you could create customized festive mugs for gifting to your loved ones during Christmas. Similarly, you could make customized ‘couple name mugs’ for your soon-to-be-married friends and present to them as a gift on their wedding.

If you’re looking to apply your artwork or graphic slightly higher up (such as on a tall water bottle), then a vertical heat press machine may not be the best thing to work with. This is because it will only cover the item to the extent of its length/height. On the other hand, a horizontal heat press machine allows you to place the graphic anywhere inside the heat press given that both the surface on which the graphic is placed and the press are flat on the graphic when it is pressed down.

It is possible to get pre-designed graphics that can go directly onto your coffee mug or travel mug. But you could also consider purchasing blank sublimation papers and print on them with a printer.

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.

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 is Dye Sublimation Printing?What Do You Need for It?

what is dye sublimation printing?Now,I share you something about it —— Dye Sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks. These inks turn into gas under the influence of heat and combine with a polyester medium. Since the ink becomes part of the structure of the material, the images on the fabric don’t fade or crack – even after multiple washings.

Then what do you need for it?You need various items to create sublimated textiles including flags, displays, sportswear, fashion, interior decoration and much more.

1. Printer and ink

A high-quality printer equipped with sublimation inks is essential. The Oric and Epson printer that are specifically designed for sublimation printing. The printers are available with Texart ink in four (CMYK) or eight colours (C,M,Y,BK,LC, LM). These inks have many colour-giving elements and are highly concentrated, which is necessary to create beautiful, vivid and crisp images.

2. Software

You also need a software to control your printer and to manage your print jobs. Therefore, when you invest in a printer, you are sure that you also have the ideal software at your disposal to run your machine. It has a perfect colour management and a multi-colour engine .

3. Transfer paper (sublimation paper)

To create high-quality sublimation prints, you need a transfer paper that has high ink absorption and dries quickly. The paper needs to stay flat and may not wave after printing. It is also important that the paper releases the ink when heating. The Sublimation transfer Paper does all that and is therefore the perfect paper for your sublimation prints.

4. Calender

Printing is only the first step of the dye sublimation process. For sublimation to take place, you need heat and pressure. Heat presse machine come in a variation of sizes and shapes, but you need a calender for roll-to-roll sublimation. Our company offers many kinds heat press, with a professional calender system that is fast, affordable and easy to use, making it a perfect finishing partner for the sublimation printers.

5. Textile

When choosing a textile for sublimation printing, it is important that you take a polyester fabric that is pre-shrunk. This avoids shrinking when heat is applied.

6. Laser Cutting Machine

For printing products you also need a Laser Cutting Machine. With a laser, cutting your fabrics and textiles to size can be done with both efficiency and ease. Laser engraving your materials can provide both a tactile effect and unparalleled high-quality finish. Whether your application is cutting unique and fine detailed shapes out of polyester, or engraving on a wide variety of other materials, laser engraving machines offer nearly endless design possibilities. Even applications with synthetic substances can be laser engraved, as these types of materials react very well during processing. Laser machines are ideal for processing polyester, because they perfectly seal the edges once heat is applied from the laser beam, and the material is left without any fraying.
