The thermal transfer equipment open up the packaging market
- Aug 10, 2018 -

People demand the excellent color and texture in packing working with the development of the advertising packaging industry. The application of digital thermal transfer equipment is on line to meet more needs of people, and the thermal transfer equipment has opened up the market for packaging already.

The experts in thermal transfer said that if you wanted to achieve the best transfer performance, the heat press machine is recommended, also setting the temperature to about 200℃, pressing the heat press machine to wait about 10 seconds the same. Attaching the print surface to the position where the T-shirt is to be transferred, and then the iron printed it back and forth with the pressure as much as possible while ironing. Also holding it about 8 seconds, and then iron the edges twice before finalizing. Thermal transfer should use the back half of the iron as much as possible (because the temperature in the back half is higher) and use special force when transferring corners. Meanwhile,keeping your clothes clean and tidy before transfer. And cutting out the print pattern and leaving 3-5 mm on the edge of the print pattern to prevent ink spilling. In further,choosing a smooth, inelastic, smooth surface (such as a wooden bench) as a transfer station.And it is recommended not to use a home ironing board because it is elastic and not conducive to image adhesion. Additionally,setting the iron to the highest temperature and turning off the steam as well.Please note that the insufficient temperature or steam both affect the transfer effect.

As a kind of thermal transfer printing equipment, a digital thermal transfer coding machine is mainly composed of a printhead, a printing ribbon and a controller. In the real-time printing working,it can be quickly applied to the printing and changing of package name, ingredient list, batch number and date as the modern digital technology.Also, Comparing with the traditional thermal carbon coder, ink wheel coder or continuous inkjet coder, the digital thermal transfer coder does not use characters for real-time code with the free editing of text and digital technology properties,which could reduce the cost and improve the code quality. Meanwhile, it has special thermal transfer ribbon to avoid contamination of foods and improve the hygiene of production. It can be widely used in clothing, sports equipment, toys, advertising, automotive supplies and other fields.

Some of packaging companies hired temporary workers in the production season to print the name and other information on sticker labels.It has increased labor with inefficiency, and on the other hand,as the presence of artificial elements, the irregularities will affect the goods appearance. Currently,the thermal transfer equipment avoids this condition happening,also easily adjusting the related information to be right. So it not only saves labor, improves efficiency, reduces errors, but also have the neat and elegant results,also improving the product quality.
