Thermal transfer equipment is also known as / thermal transfer machine / thermal transfer heat transfer machine / thermal transfer small heat transfer printing machine. Mainly used in the thermal transfer industry to achieve personalized gift customization. The thermal transfer equipment mainly includes a baking cup machine, a multi-function baking cup machine, a flat heat transfer machine, a shaking head heat transfer machine, a baking machine, a baking cap machine and the like. In addition to thermal transfer equipment, thermal transfer projects also require thermal transfer consumables, computers, printers, and digital cameras.
Problems you may encounter with thermal transfer equipment:
1. The color is too light: the temperature is too low or the pressure is uneven or the time is too short.
2. The pattern is blurred: too long time causes the ink to spread.
3. The surface of the pattern is dull: the pressure is too high or the temperature is too high.
4. The local blurring of the pattern: uneven heat distribution in the hot stamping area.
5. The pattern has scars: the hot stamping time is too long.
6. The color of the pattern is different: the pressure is uneven or the transfer coating of the object is uneven.
7. Sticky paper: The temperature is too high or the transfer coating of the object is poor.
Commonly used equipment
- Drying equipment
The drying equipment is used for drying the residual film after the product is sprayed. The drying after washing is mainly the evaporation of water, and the drying after the spraying is the volatile drying of the solvent. After the water evaporates, the graphic will form a tight bond with the product, and the varnish will form a high-gloss, dense and hard graphic protective layer after drying.
Drying equipment comes in two forms: the production line and a single cabinet. Single-cabinet type is often used for drying the product proofing process, while line-type drying equipment is used for large-scale production. The assembly line drying equipment has a conveying device and a drying device. The main requirement of the general design is that the product can be thoroughly dried after being transported to the terminal after entering the drying unit. The drying device is mainly based on infrared heating.
With the rapid development of UV spraying technology, UV coating on the surface of the product has begun to pay attention. The environmental advantages of UV and the superior physical and chemical properties have always been the focus of water transfer printing. When UV spraying technology is used, the drying method is the UV drying line, and the UV drying line is no different from the UV curing machine used in traditional UV curing technology.
- Fuel injection equipment
The fuel injection equipment is used for spraying on the surface of the transferred product. It is composed of an organic body and a fuel injection pressure device. The paint used for spraying will become fine and floating particulate matter under extremely high pressure and will form adsorption after encountering the product. force. The fully automatic fuel injection equipment not only automates the product but also solves the health damage to the operating staff.
Although the water transfer process itself is not harmful, some chemical substances in the water transfer process have certain damage to the human body. The degree of automation of the water transfer printing equipment is not high, and the proportion of manual operation is relatively large. These are all water. Some problems faced by transfer equipment. These problems will be continuously improved.
- Filming equipment
The filming device mainly completes the activation of the graphic on the water drape transfer film and the transfer of the film to the surface of the product. The filming equipment is actually a water tank with constant temperature control function, some are welded with white iron and some are made of stainless steel.
Fully automatic filming equipment for film handling of standard products. Its robots can handle the product freely, greatly increasing productivity and reducing the cumbersome procedures of manual operation.
After the water-drawing transfer film is cut, it is placed flat on the water surface of the film-forming device. After the film absorbs water and forms a parallel storage state with water, it floats freely on the water surface. The ink layer is evenly flat due to the surface tension of water. Spread on the water. The activator is evenly sprayed on the surface of the film, and the film slowly breaks down and dissolves. Due to the water resistance of the ink, the ink layer begins to appear in a free state.
- Washing equipment
The washing equipment completes the cleaning of the residual film on the surface of the product, and the general washing equipment is manufactured in the form of a line to facilitate continuous production. The transferred product is placed on the conveyor belt of the washing equipment, and the operator manually cleans the residue of the product and then discharges it to the next process.
The washing equipment mainly consists of a pool and a conveyor belt device, the conveyor belt device completes the transportation of the product, and the water pool is used for the cleaning of the product.
