As one of the important pieces of equipment for garment printing, the hot stamping machine is an indispensable part of the garment printing industry. It is replacing traditional embroidery and screen printing. At the same time simple operation, the cost, and effect are much lower and better than the general embroidery and multi-color screen printing. Hot stamping technology is becoming a rookie in the field of garment printing.
Through the heating plate, the layer and thermosetting on the transfer paper are bonded to the substrate or penetrated into the substrate with a certain pressure, specific temperature, and time. This is the working principle of the hot stamping machine. According to the shape and function of the ironing board, the ironing machine can be roughly divided into four types: flat ironing machine (mainly used for the collection of sizes and specifications of clothing fabrics), cup ironing machine (can iron cylindrical objects, generally used for cups), cap ironing machine (with arc, generally used for finished caps), and plate ironing machine (also flat, but can iron-hard surfaces such as porcelain and metal).
The contribution of the hot stamping machine can be seen everywhere
Hot stamping machine is widely used in the printing industry. Clothing stamping and metal photos are all used in the stamping machine. Knitting T-shirts, denim, plush, toys, shoes, backpacks, all kinds of nylon hats, calendars, hanging shafts, hanging bags, medals, gold and Silver Carved photos, tiles, glass, wood grain log plates, etc. are all contributed by the stamping machine. Heat is generated through the heating plate. With a certain pressure, specific temperature, and time, the layers and thermosetting on the transfer paper are bonded to the substrate or infiltrated into the substrate. Various hot stamping pictures are hot transferred onto cotton, hemp, chemical fiber, and other fabrics. It can also be subject to screen printing, glue paste, foaming, and other process heat treatment. It can also bake color codes, portrait photos, and landscape patterns on porcelain and metal plates. It is especially suitable for making medals Commemorative cards, cultural shirts, etc. are economical and practical with exquisite patterns.
The hot stamping technique is easy to learn but difficult to master
It seems simple to output the image on the transfer paper, and then transfer it on different materials with appropriate temperature and pressure, but it is not! Hot stamping technology is easy to learn but difficult to master. It is easy to misunderstand because you do not understand the specific principles. Many hot stamping shops have a high failure rate and can’t find the reason. Although the printed ones can be kept by themselves, after years of accumulation, it is possible to open a “T-shirt printing failure Exhibition” over time.
It’s easy to finish a partial beautiful hot stamping, but a large area of hot stamping that is uniform and does not fall off is the time to test the technology. The transfer interface of hot stamping is very important, that is, the processing technology of hot stamping. The temperature is too low to adhere to, and the pattern will be blurred or scorched if the temperature is too high. Some hot stamping shops have bought more than 1000 yuan of hot stamping machines, which have been printing unevenly or with unstable quality. The reason is that the heat transfer heating system is different. Is the temperature uniform? Is the pressure appropriate? This is related to the quality of hot stamping. A good hot stamping function can solve the problem of different pressure and material thickness at one time.
Hot stamping technology has a bright future
Hot stamping originated in the United States and has a long history and tradition. It can be divided into foaming hot stamping, offset hot stamping, penetration hot stamping, colorful bead hot stamping, laser hot stamping, flocking hot stamping, reflective hot stamping, gold and silver hot stamping, and water-based hot stamping. Because of its simple process and easy operation, it was first spread in the United States and Western Europe and gradually became popular in China in the past two years. In the early days, the hot stamping was not so much a hot stamping as hot stamping. It was mainly hot stamping on some popular spoken words and characters. Later, it gradually expanded its scope to vivid patterns.
“You know etiquette when you have a solid warehouse, and you know honor and disgrace when you have enough food and clothing.”. With the development of the economy and the progress of society, people are no longer satisfied with the mediocre life, but pay more and more attention to self-expression and flaunt their individuality. At the same time, the development of computer technology and the development of related software are undoubtedly icing on the cake for the self ironing industry.
Hot stamping clothing has been popular in European and American markets for a long time and is the main force of popular leisure clothing. Because the hot stamping process is simple and easy to operate, the required materials are economical and can be widely printed on various substrates, now the use of a hot stamping machine is transferred to the cloth, which can be used in industry and is convenient for civil use. The hot stamping technology will have a bright future.
