Dye sublimation calender consists of a variety of features, but the most important include the device’s size, heat distribution, and textile alignment.
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 to 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.
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.
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.
