It can print both roll to roll and piece fabric.

The working table is double-deck, with conveyor. And the conveyor is within dependent motor. So that you can control the moving of the conveyor. Convenient for both roll and piece fabric.

The main roller of sublimation heat press calender is precise vertical finishing processing, com-pared with the traditional horizontal finishing, it can reduce earth gravity, so that the roller is not easy deformation and better keep level with the whole machine.Also with a long life time. And the roller is double-deck, which is better for heating and the temperature is evener.

The oil drum adopt temperature cycling system which makes the surface temperature of the drum is even and precise. Machine with pneumatic extro pressure strengthen device, which can give extro pressure to blanket when printing thick fabrics

If you are just starting out on the heat press scene, then getting a starter heat transfer press is the one for you. This heat press machine is an affordable way to start a small imprint fabric business, according to Sign Warehouse. These presses are not designed for high volume production. They are simple to use and can be compact, meaning they don’t take up a lot of space.

Available in mid-to-high volume production models, they range from shop-sized to industrial-sized presses. The oil in their drums takes longer to heat up than the air in their electrical counterparts, but they maintain heat far better over long periods of time and ensure much better heat-pressing consistency.

Unlike the other heat presses illustrated in this post, calender presses don’t have heat blocks. Instead, they use oil or electrically heated drums to heat transfer from a printed roll of paper onto polyester fabric – the roll of paper is attached calendar press to the press and fed through with the fabric. calendar press Average-sized calender presses are available in working widths of around 65″ to 70.9″. Some are simple roll-fed designs and others are designed to enable pre-cut fabric pieces to be fed through individually. Large-format, oil drum calender press by Sublistar with feed table its the ideal for feeding individual pieces.

Calender heat presses are ideal for users who want to specialize in cut and sew apparel and soft-signage. They cannot be used, however, to press rigid substrates. Prices vary a great deal and much of the cost is based on whether it’s electric or oil based and on the size of the drum – a bigger drum means a higher cost. However, a bigger drum also means greater production and faster output. Unlike smaller heat presses, calender presses require a 240V electrical outlet with a double throw (2 pole) set-up.
