What is thermal transfer? Thermal transfer is a new method of printing patterns on commodities of various materials, and is especially suitable for producing a small number of personalized and customized commodities, and printing patterns containing full-color images or photos. The principle is to print the digital pattern on a special transfer paper with a special transfer ink through a printer, and then use a special transfer machine to accurately transfer the pattern to the surface of the product at high temperature and high pressure to complete the product printing. Thermal transfer is an emerging printing process, which has been introduced from abroad for more than 10 years. The process printing method is divided into two parts: transfer film printing and transfer processing. The transfer film printing adopts halftone printing (resolution up to 300dpi), and the pattern is printed on the surface of the film in advance. The printed pattern has rich layers, bright colors, and ever-changing , The color difference is small, the reproducibility is good, and it can meet the requirements of the designer, and it is suitable for mass production.
The transfer process transfers the exquisite patterns on the transfer film to the surface of the product through a heat transfer machine (heating and pressure). After the forming, the ink layer and the product surface are integrated into one, which is vivid and beautiful, greatly improving the quality of the product. However, due to the high technical content of this process, many materials need to be imported.
Thermal transfer is a digital printing machine that can print on any relatively flat materials such as leather, textile fabrics, plexiglass, metal, plastic, crystal, wood products, copperplate paper, etc., for one-time multi-color, arbitrary complex color, and transitional color printing. There is no need for plate making, color registration, and complicated exposure procedures, and no damage to the material. Since the product went on the market, it has been highly praised by people in various industries, and the number of factory customers for secondary purchases has increased. And thermal transfer technology can also use a variety of different transfer materials to achieve different printing effects.
