own heat press

Making your own heat exchanger by screen printing is an easy way to quickly apply the design to a variety of garments. This will give you a familiar print look, but with great flexibility and cost savings.

The easiest way to design this heat transfer is with a screen printing frame, a plasticizer ink, a plasticizer powder glue, and a Like normal screen printing, the design is transferred from the emulsion to the treated frame using UV light, and then to the heat transfer film using plasticizer wires and clamps. The main difference between traditional screen printing and heat transfer film production is that the image is reprinted. Otherwise, when the heating process is complete, the finished design will mirror the original.

Warming clothes is done in three easy steps:

Place clothes or items on the heat printer for screen printing.

Move the design to the ink and close the press.

Turn on the printer and wait 6-15 seconds for the shell to come out (if using a hot shell or hot distributor).

This whole process takes a few seconds and you get a completely different product from the normal screen. The used film capability is ideal for printing in baseball cabinets. A special printer for the door fulfills the dream of printing the screen and turning it into an old thing.

Screen printing designs on paper have been around for almost two years, so if you want to print faster in the future, it’s easy to get customized designs. If you do screen printing as a business, this is an easy inventory, as storing paper is easier than frame, ink and other screen printing materials.

Essential materials

If you have on-screen printing equipment, you only need to add the following additions to your concert:

Paper transfer paper or film

Plasticizer (if you don’t have one)

Plasticazole powder glue

Plasticzole paints are paints based on PVC. They mainly push the PVC into the plasticizer and dissolve the mixture when heated. This screen is the most widely used water and water soluble printing solution. They are “dried” using the treatment method obtained by flash dryer or carrier dryer. Some screen printers transfer heat and improve their design with the help of heat compressors. This method is not recommended due to unintended consequences.

Plastisol powder adhesive allows you to stick to your design better than the design you choose. Dry art printed on the screen can be done, and if you are designing on a large scale, it is better to be safe than sorry. For multi-color designs, if you don’t want to use powder glue by adding powder to the paint layer, you can add powder to the top layer for the final treatment.

Prepare the screen for heat transfer.

When preparing your copy for publication, you should keep the following principles in mind:

Unlike traditional costumes, the film needs to be re-released.

If you use multiple colors, remember that in most cases the first layer you will use is the next part of the piece.

Fine details and large portions of color may not translate well into heat transfer.

Save a layer of colors by layer (“overlay”).

Make a cut for the paper.

When printing multiple colors, reverse the printing order. It’s a little difficult to explain. Basically, when your design is printed on a T-shirt, the T-shirt has a top layer or a bottom layer of the design. It doesn’t affect single color prints, but make sure your colors are set correctly when creating more sophisticated designs.

Not all designs are suitable for heat transfer. When reviewing heat transfer designs – fine lines and large portions of colors should not be translated too well. Thin lines can cause cracks in the process of drawing, and large chunks of color can have different thicknesses, which are difficult to treat and move.

Keep the thickness of your ink the same. To transfer heat, you have to look at the ink evenly when you press the screen. Painting or “coating” different thicknesses will make it harder to match your design.
