Sublimation printing technology is a transfer technology. This is the simplest production process in the current printing process. The sublimation printing process using digital printing technology can design computers according to the customer’s various styles, colors and patterns. The pattern is printed on the transfer paper, and the pattern and color can be perfectly printed on the fabric by high temperature and high pressure.
Advantages of sublimation printing:
1. The heat sublimation process does not require water or sewage, the process is very short, the finished product is printed after printing, and no post-treatment process such as cooking, washing, etc. is required;
2, the sublimation process printing pattern is exquisite, the layer is rich and clear, the art is high, and the pattern and painting style can be printed;
3. Sublimation printing is brightly colored. During the sublimation process, the tar in the dye remains on the transfer paper and does not contaminate the fabric;
4. High output, when printing, you can print multiple sets of color patterns at one time without spending flowers;
5. Flexibility, customers can print in a short time after selecting the pattern.
The sublimation printing process mainly processes polyester and chemical fiber fabrics, modal fibers, nylon fibers and acrylic fibers.
As sublimation printing becomes faster and less costly, sublimation printing is very popular in the production of sportswear, flags, fashion and other printed materials. The only problem that needs to be solved – how to cut prints accurately and quickly.
The problem of hand-cut sublimation printed fabrics: inaccurate, inefficient, and requiring a lot of labor.
Laser cutting solutions are popular in the dye sublimation industry, combining laser cutting technology with camera pattern contour recognition technology and global use. The camera recognition system is used to identify sublimation print profiles, and the CCD system automatically, efficiently and accurately identifies and cuts the pattern profile of the fabric or fabric, automatically compensating for any deformation or stretching of the elastic fabric.
The laser cutting does not contact the material during the cutting process, avoiding the tensile deformation caused by the external force during the cutting process, ensuring the best cutting precision; in addition, the laser cutting seam is only 0.1 mm. The trimming can be automatically locked to ensure a neat trimming without secondary processing, which is beneficial to the sewing process of the fabric.
The use of automatic laser cutting machines makes the cutting of sublimation printed fabrics more intelligent and efficient. It reduces the manual dependence of printed fabric cutting, improves cutting accuracy, and makes printed fabrics easier to cut.
