The difference between Transfer printing Technology and Digital Printing

June 21, 2018

What is thermal transfer technology? Why do you use thermal transfer technology? Thermal transfer is a new way to print patterns on various material goods, it is particularly suitable for the production of a small number of personalized and customized products, as well as the printing of full color images or photographs. The principle is to print patterns onto special transfer paper with special heat transfer printing ink, then transfer them to the surface of products by high temperature and high pressure with special transfer printing machine, so as to finish the printing of commodities.

Thermal transfer printing (thermal transfer ink) is a new printing process, which has been introduced from abroad for more than 10 years. The printing method of this process is divided into two parts, the transfer film printing and the transfer processing. The transfer film printing is printed by dot printing,Imprint the pattern on the surface of the film, Printing patterns are rich in layers, colorful, ever-changing, small color difference, and good reproducibility, which can achieve the desired effect of designers, and is suitable for mass production. The transfer process is processed by a heat transfer machine (heated and pressurized) to transfer the exquisite pattern on the film to the surface of the product, after the molding, the ink layer and the surface of the product are dissolved into one. It is realistic and beautiful, greatly improving the grade of the product. However, because of the high technology content, many materials need to be imported.

And the better than the heat transfer technology is digital printing.

Digital printing is a systematic project, involving CAD technology, network communication technology, precision machining technology and sophisticated technology and other cutting-edge technology. It is the product of the integration of communication technology with the traditional technology, such as machinery, textile and chemical industry.

Traditional printing, regardless of the use of flat net and circular network, can not be separated from the net. However, the cost time consumed by the plate making is not suitable for the small and diversified trend of modern printing. Therefore, the development of no printing plate, no press digital printing. The basic principle is the same as the inkjet printer.

As a result of digital jet printing involves a lot of calculation and control, it can be said that there can be no digital jet printing without today's high speed computer. At present, the development of digital inkjet printing technology is basically synchronous with the working ability of computers, but the development of computer technology is still no sign of weakening. With the development of computer technology, we can predict that digital printing technology will also have rapid development in the future. At the same time, the manufacturing technology of the nozzle also benefits from the related technologies of integrated circuits, such as etching, precision assembly and so on. This is proved by the emergence of modern high frequency and multi nozzle sprayer.
