Introduction To Thermal Transfer Technology

Mar. 05, 2019

V Shape Sublimation Mugs are made using thermal transfer technology.

The thermal transfer printing method is divided into two parts: transfer film printing and transfer processing. The transfer film printing adopts dot printing (resolution up to 300 dpi), and the pattern is pre-printed on the surface of the film. The printed pattern is rich in layers and colorful. , ever-changing, small color difference, good reproducibility, can achieve the effect of designing the pattern, and suitable for mass production; transfer processing through the thermal transfer machine one-time processing (heating and pressing) will transfer the delicate pattern on the transfer film On the surface of the product, after the molding, the ink layer is integrated with the surface of the product, which is realistic and beautiful, greatly improving the grade of the product.


Thermal transfer is divided into billion and thermal transfer (suitable for a large number of printing methods) and digital thermal transfer [2] (suitable for small quantities, to make their own characteristics), the difference between the two:

Thermal transfer production process:

The first step. Make high-resolution pictures;

The second step. Make a dot-type gravure electro-engraving plate according to the size of the picture;

The third step.Printing the gravure on the printing machine onto the PET polyester film, that is, printing into a thermal transfer film, and printing the finished product pattern for several hours in one hour.

The fourth step .Install the thermal transfer film on the thermal transfer hot stamping machine for printing, the operation is simple, the pattern is formed once, and no coloring is needed.

A thermal transfer stamping machine can print tens of thousands of products in 8 working hours a day.

The Full White Sublimation Mug is also one of the types.

Digital thermal transfer production process:

The first step. Make a high-resolution picture;

The second step .Print the pattern on the thermal transfer paper by a thermal transfer printer, hundreds of meters per hour;

The third step. The ordinary pattern of the hot stamping machine can be used to print the pattern onto the product, the operation is simple, the pattern is formed once, and no coloring is needed;

A machine can print thousands of goods in 8 working hours a day. Can be applied to ABS, PP, leather, ceramic coated cups


What is thermal transfer? Thermal transfer is a new way to print patterns on a variety of materials, especially for making a small variety of personalized and custom-made products, as well as printing patterns containing full-color images or photos. The principle is that the digital pattern is printed on the transfer special paper through the printer with special transfer ink, and then the special transfer machine is used to accurately transfer the pattern to the surface of the product at high temperature and high pressure to complete the printing of the product.

It can carry out one-time multi-color, arbitrarily complex color, transition color printing digital printing machine on any relative flat material such as leather, textile fabric, plexiglass, metal, plastic, crystal, wood products, coated paper, etc. It does not need plate making. The color registration process and the complicated drying process will not cause damage to the material. Since the product was launched, it has been highly praised by people in various industries, and the number of factory customers who purchase the second time is increasing.
