How to operate heat press machine to avoid error?

It is very significant to use correctly heat press machine during transfer process. There are so much complaint from our customers for our heat transfer sticker, but the final reason is that customers do not operate press machine correctly. Therefore there are some useful advice for you.

First, we need to know about the types of heat press machine.

1. According to press ways, there are two types, flat press and circle press

2. According to ways to transfer pressure, there are 3 types, pneumatic,hydraulic type and mechanical type.

Pneumatic style four stations

Mechanical style four stations

Second, we need to know transfer technical date

1. Adjust flatly to place machine

Make sure put the press machine flatly. The working area needs to be stable. If it is not, it is easy to occur security accident.

2. To test before transfer

Before transferring, we need to test the fabric, like setting needed temperature, time etc. . We must test first, then begin to bulk operations. We must press based on standard temperature, time and pressure.

3. About the standard of pressure

Usually 0.2kg/square centimeter is the standard. But it depends on the fabric actually. The following formula is for your reference:

Like hydraulic style : pressure/ area

For example: if the pressure is 2t, the working area is 60*80cm, so the pressure is: 2000/4800=0.417kg/cm²

4. Setting press temperature

The 4 points when we setting the temperature:

A.To read the instruction of pressing materials

B.To test the temperature tolerance of fabric

C.To know about the thickness of fabric

D. To know about the working environment like temperature, humility etc

Usually , it is based on test result to press. The way to measure the temperature, just use thermodetector (Infrared Thermometer gun) to test many times.

5. Press time

It is confirmed usually based on transfer need and test many times. There is time control equipment in the press machine.

In a word, we need to think overall and check from different ways when you press so that it can make the best effect!
