What are the advantages of thermal transfer?


Swing Away Heat Press.jpgThermal transfer printing machines are also known as thermal transfer printing. Thermal transfer is an emerging printing process that has been introduced to China from abroad for more than 10 years. The printing method is to first print the pigment on the paper, make the transfer printing paper, and transfer the color to the fabric through high temperature (heating and pressing on the back of the paper), which is generally used for chemical fiber fabrics, characterized by bright colors and fine layers. The flower pattern is realistic and artistic. The transfer printing process is simple, the investment is small, and the production is flexible. Currently, it is popular in the market. The heat transfer printing and other types of printing are compared. The price is high, but there is a certain grade. The chemical fiber fabric needs to adopt thermal transfer methods. The thermal transfer printing process is simple, the position is accurate, and the transition of different colors is natural.

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. Wait, the economy is practical and the pattern is beautiful. It is replacing traditional embroidery and screen printing, but the cost and effect are much lower than and better than the general embroidery and multi-color screen printing. There are two types of heat transfer machines related to the garment industry: flat heat press machines mainly used for clothing and apparel fabrics, and hot stamping machines for arcs. According to the operating power, it can be divided into manual, pneumatic and oil pressure. There are three main concepts in the heat press machine: pressure, temperature and time. Its working mechanism is to heat the heat-generating plate and apply the layer and heat-fixing on the transfer paper to the substrate or penetrate the substrate with a certain pressure, specific temperature and time.
