Hot Stamping & Heat-transfer Technology



        There are Five types of hot stamping presses according to the stamping methods and substrate's shapes.

  •       Heat transfer Process

           1.Roller-to-Flat Hot Stamping
        Roller-to-flat hot stamping,is actually based on the principle of flat heat-transfer press,which is primarily used to decorate the planar objects and curved objects.Typically,a object that is completely required to be decorated,appliance panel,some facet of cosmetic packaging,top of the plastic box or wooden jewelry box,toys,PVC sheet,ski,and plastic posts are suitable to be decorated by a roller-to-flat hot stamping press .If a floating device is installed on the working station,roller-to-flat hot stamping press is also used to decorate the complex objects. H-150M and H-300M belong to this type.
      2.Rotary Hot Stamping
       Rotary hot stamping is based on the principle of rotary heat-transfer press. Most of Heat transfer machine can transfer both flat and round object. When trnasfer Flat object, The roller press down, The working table move from left to right; When transfer round object, The roller press down, The working table keep stillness and Object turn round.
      (1)For Empty Platic Bottle
      For the rigid bottle,is able to endure the pressure of,such bottle is directly decorated plus an axis position system;For the pliable bottle,is decorated after the bottle full of air to support the roller.
     (2)Plastic Pliable Tube
   Toothpaste,shampoo,bodycare,gel's container,or tubes are dcorated by this press if a supporting axis is installed.
  •       Hot stamping Process:

     3.Flat-to-flat Fot Stamping
       Flat-to-flat hot stamping press is suitable to decorate texts or logo onto some part of a planar object,such as Operation panel. This type hot stamping machine suitable for Gilding Leather, Wooden, Paper, Film, Plastics plate, Photo frame, Electron part Etc.
     4.Flat-to-roller Hot Stamping
      The flat-to-roller hot stamping press,is suitable to decorate the round objects,such as plastic cap, ball-point pen,soft tube,round dial,golf cue,cosmetic box and food plastic packaging. H-TC50K, H-TC70K, H-TC100K belong to this type.





Hot stamping machine and heat transfer machine

   By hot stamping machine you will get metal gloss on your products; by heat transfer machine, you will transfer beautiful picture printed onto PET film to your products. It is consist of working table, hot press system, temperature controlling system, foil feed and rolling system.
     l          Structure
 Hot stamping machine and heat transfer machine have more complex structure than pad printer and screen printer:
1.            Working table: Install fixture and substrates. There are four kinds of working table: Flat stillness, round, flat shuttle and conveyer , flat stillness working table installed flat stamping machine. Round working table use to stamp round products and flat shuttle working table use to stamp flat products.
2.           Hot press system: Install silicon rubber plate or silicon rubber roller. Silicon plate used by hot stamping machine and silicon rubber roller used by heat transfer machine. When silicon plate or silicon roller press down and keep contact with substrate, heat and pressure pass through stamping foil or heat transfer film.
3.           Temperature controlling system: Measure silicon plate and silicon roller temperature and pass to controlling meter, keep nearest range between fact temperature and setting temperature so that get best quality.
4.           Foil feed and rolling system: Install stamping foil or heat transfer film. After stamping and transfer one product, the foil and film will rolling to equal length according to your setting rolling time.
5.           Operation controlling system: Most of stamping machine and heat transfer machine controlled by micro-computer built in to make machine stability and easy to operate. When testing, only press simple action key and when starting automatic key to begin printing will be helpful to operate screen printer.
l          Mainly factor
1.            Silicon plate and silicon roller: 
       Siliconplate adhered to upper of stamping machine; roller installed on the heat transfer machine. More harder silicon rubber get more better stamping quality
2.           Stamping foil and heat transfer film:
            Stamping foil coloured made by vacuum braise-plating and heat transfer film printed by cave copper printing machine. Stamping foil used by stamping machine and heat transfer machine; heat transfer film only used by heat transfer film.
3.           Fixture:
             It is important to make fixture according to products. Regular products need the fixture made by lathe or CNC. Complex products need the fixture made by polyester resin.
l          Sorts
1.   Flat stamping machine:  Stamping head is flat and working table keep stillness named  Flat stamping machine(H-TC1520) . Conveyer working table installed on flat hot stamping machine named  conveyer hot stamping machine,There are two kinds of stamping machine: one is  Manual stamping machine(HM-TC3025), the other is  Air-controlling machine(H-TC3025).
2.   Cylinder stamping machine: Shuttle working table installed on flat stamping machine named C  ylinder stamping machine(H-TC70K) . Round products can be stamped by this kind of machine.
3.   Flat heat transfer machine: Stamping machine with silicon roller and shuttle working table named  Flat heat transfer machine(H-150M) . When roller press down to contact flat substrate and working table move from left to right, flat products will be transferred through heat and pressure.
4.   Cylinder heat transfer machine: Round fixture installed on the working table , cylinderproducts will be transferred. Most of heat transfer machine have two function: when transfer flat product, removing round fixture and make working table movement ; when transfer cylinder product, installing round fixture and keep working table stillness.
     5.    Imitating-surface stamping machine(H-TC120KM)  : Stamping head can be fluctuated when contacting with product surface figure because of fluctuating device. Oval object, camber object, ball object etc complex product will be transferred by this machine. With the development of market,  Fully-automatically cylinder stamping machine  improve rapidly stamping speed and enter into the vision.
