Flatbed Or Rotary heat press machine, which is better?
Rotary Drum Transfer Machines are often used to print fabric continuously (roll to roll) and to print large fabric parts such as signs and banners which may be too large for a standard platen press. Drum machines can also be used to print sports apparel and other cut apparel parts. Drum machines are more productive than platen machines for sublimation printing on cut apparel parts and are therefore used when production volume is high. Drum machines are not used however to print onto rigid substrates such as wood, metal or ceramic tile.
If you wish to print full coverage on 60" wide yard goods, a Rotary Drum Heat Transfer machine is required. T-shirts, mugs, wood or tile are best printed on a flatbed heat press machine. Cut apparel parts can be printed on either a platen press or a rotary drum machine. Production requirements often dictate which type of machine is used. Banners and soft signage are often printed on a rotary drum machine.
What are the advantages of using a rotary Drum Heat Transfer Press?
Rotary Drum Heat Presses are typically more efficient then their platen counterparts. These types of presses eliminate the need for registration marks and garment templates. The garment parts - fronts, backs sleeves can be cut in quantity. The paper is printed in a roll and fed into the machine with the graphic facing up. The cut parts are placed down onto the paper as it is fed into the machine. This is a much more efficient way to run the work.
These advantages make Rotary Drum Presses ideal for production factories looking to operate efficiently in a lean manufacturing environment.
