The photo frame thermal transfer technology can be widely applied to articles such as porcelain, glass, metal, plastic, cotton textile, etc. However, since the thermal transfer of the photo frame is limited by the heated area and the shape of the object, objects of different sizes and shapes are used. It is often necessary to use specific production tools. Among them, the commonly used photo frame thermal transfer production tools mainly include flatbed machines (hot stamping machines), baking machines, baking cups, etc., but after all, their production methods are based on EVA slippers. The principle of transfer, so the production steps and processes are similar, but the application of the photo frame thermal transfer tool is different. The following is an example of transferring a picture to a clothes using a tablet machine, and explaining the steps and flow of photo frame thermal transfer production.
Step 1: Print the image through a color inkjet printer.
Step 2: The printed pattern is placed on one side first, and the transfer starts after about 15 to 20 minutes. When transferring, when placing the printed image on the clothes, the pattern should face down, and then adjust the time according to the requirements of the phototransfer equipment transfer (usually 20 seconds), and close the heating piece of the device. (Note: Before the transfer, the cotton T-shirt should be sprayed with a little deepening agent on the printing part, and then dried and then transferred to the photo frame. The function of the cotton T-shirt is to change the color of the ink through hot pressure and improve the ink on the clothing. Bright effect).
Step 3: In order to avoid the clothes being too yellow and yellow, you can put a lining on the clothes and then heat transfer the photo frame. After the time alarm of the photo frame thermal transfer device, lift the heater chip, quickly uncover the pattern paper, take out the clothes, and turn off the power of the device.
The fourth step: Finally, when the temperature of the clothes is cool, stacking the bags, the entire photo frame can be finished by thermal transfer, and the finished product is finished.
Third, the photo frame thermal transfer market demand analysis
Compared with the current fashion and mainstream water transfer printing, what are the advantages and disadvantages of photo frame thermal transfer technology? Specifically, the water transfer printing is more flexible and convenient, and is not limited by the area and shape of the object. Usually, no special tools and equipment are needed (as long as a water transfer paper can be used), so the scope of application is even more applicable. Widely, the production cost is lower than that of the photo frame, which is suitable for home users and small workshops and fashion jewelry stores.
Photo frame thermal transfer due to the relationship between the image and the heat of the image, the color of the finished image will be stronger than that of the water transfer, and it will not easily fall out of color. It has corrosion resistance, impact resistance, aging resistance, wear resistance and high temperature resistance. Fireproof, can maintain the characteristics of no discoloration for ten to several decades, so the photo frame thermal transfer technology is especially suitable for appliances, daily necessities, building materials and other objects that have special requirements for image retention.
