1. Hot stamping, commonly known as "hot stamping" refers to the text and pattern of materials such as hot stamping foils on the seal or seal of the hardcover book cover and the back of the book, or the various titles of the bumps or the like by hot pressing. Pattern. Thermal transfer is a new way to print patterns on a variety of materials, especially for making a small variety of personalized and custom-made products, as well as printing patterns containing full-color images or photos.
2, the essence of hot stamping is transfer, is the process of transferring the pattern on the anodized aluminum to the substrate through the action of heat and pressure. The thermal transfer is to print the digital pattern on the transfer special paper through the printer with special transfer ink, and then transfer the pattern to the surface of the product with high precision and high pressure with a special transfer machine to complete the printing of the product.
3. Hot stamping is a hot stamping head that will be heated to laminate the metal or paint on the hot stamping film to the surface of the workpiece to be decorated or marked. The transfer processing transfers the delicate pattern on the transfer film to the surface of the product through one-time processing (heating and pressing) of the heat transfer machine. After the molding, the ink layer is integrated with the surface of the product, which is realistic and beautiful, greatly improving the grade of the product.
4. The four basic conditions of the hot stamping process: the hot stamping head includes a hot stamping stencil, a heater, and a pressure transmitting mechanism. Thermal transfer is divided into billion and thermal transfer. Thermal transfer technology can also use a variety of different transfer materials to achieve different printing effects, the most important are film transfer and sublimation transfer.
Thermal transfer is an emerging printing process that has been introduced abroad for more than 10 years. The printing method of the process is divided into two parts: transfer film printing and transfer processing. The transfer film printing adopts dot printing (resolution up to 300 dpi), and the pattern is pre-printed on the surface of the film. The printed pattern is rich in layers, colorful, and ever-changing. The color difference is small, the reproducibility is good, the effect of the design pattern can be achieved, and it is suitable for mass production.
