How to choose thermal transfer?

 

Heat Transfer Printing Equipment.jpgWhy do you have to choose thermal transfer? A small number of digital thermal transfer? Because thermal transfer is to make an electro-engraving plate, and digital thermal transfer does not need to make an electro-engraving plate. In contrast, the cost of thermal transfer is relatively high, but why do people choose thermal transfer when the quantity is large? In addition to the quality problem, the most important thing is the productivity problem. The thermal transfer can print thousands of products in one hour. However, digital thermal transfer can only print about one hundred items in one hour. Therefore, if it is just a commemorative gift, people will choose digital thermal transfer, but if it is required for the production of the manufacturer, it will choose thermal transfer.


Thermal transfer is a new way to print patterns on a variety of materials, especially for making a small variety of personalized and custom-made items, as well as printing patterns containing full-color images or photos. The principle is that the digital pattern is printed on the transfer special paper through the printer with special transfer ink, and then the special transfer machine is used to accurately transfer the pattern to the surface of the product at high temperature and high pressure to complete the printing of the product.


Thermal transfer technology can also use a variety of different transfer materials to achieve different printing effects, the most important are film transfer and sublimation transfer.
