A dye sublimation printer is a type of printer found in many dye sublimation printers. A dye sublimation printer, also known as a thermal dye sublimation printer has an automatic thermal lamp that creates continuous-color images using high quality, original pigment inks. Also known as a “dye” printer, the dye cartridge contains dye ribbon in the form of a ring of pigment with several thin sheets of transparent glass or plastic to be printed on. There are typically four channels for each color: one for cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMY) colors; two for” CMY” colors and one for “clear” colors. The printing process leaves behind tiny droplets of ink that have been coated on the glass or plastic plates with dyes.
In the Dye Sublimation process, the printer works under a blanket of heat from a vaporizing bath, which melts the ink onto the cloth. The resulting image is then transferred to the paper from the heat gun. The Dye Sublimation printer is also commonly found in industrial situations because it does not need any additional heating or cooling equipment.
The Dye Sublimation printer produces some excellent, professional quality prints that can be applied to a wide range of surfaces. The most common uses for a dye sublimation printer are for photographic print jobs and for flat fabrics, such as T-shirts. The dye sublimation printer produces a very smooth, shiny, professional-looking finish on T-shirts, silk shirts and other textiles. It can produce beautiful, colorful prints that are even fade-resistant.
A Dye Sublimation printer produces thousands of garments a day. It is used for cutting machinery in apparel plants, making labels for products, embossing logos and other designs onto clothing and more. The printer combines dye sublimation with heat-tunnel technology that increases the visibility of the finished product. The dye dries instantly onto the label or design. The printing head of the machine leaves tiny needle holes to allow the ink to seep through the fibers of the garment.
One benefit of using a sublimation printer is that the cost of the paper and other elements is generally less than other methods of printing. This is because you do not have to print on higher quality materials. Many companies use a Dye Sublimation printer to create T-shirt labels and to create bumper stickers. The machines can also create large amounts of high-quality, clear sublimation paper that can be used for projects such as computer printing, faxes and more.
You will find that most of the high-quality dye sublimation printers available today are actually desktop units. While they can be used for larger projects, they are not intended for printing on clothing and other small items. Instead, you will generally find these printers are used for producing large numbers of small, detailed prints. The Dye Sublimation printer is also commonly used for digital photo printing (DIP) on shirts, mugs and other small items.
A Dye Sublimation printer works in conjunction with a dye sublimation printer head that contains four translucent panels that are filled with dye. These dye filled panels are each coated with different colors of dye. The printer automatically transfers the four different colors of dye onto the fabric.
While Dye Sublimation is an advanced technology, it still has some limitations. The dye sublimation process can produce some subtle color differences between the fabrics being produced. These color differences are not usually noticed unless there is a very large design pattern created. Also, the process of sublimation requires sufficient exposure to heat to prevent cracking or ghosting. In the case of fabric dye sublimation, certain fabrics tend to not work very well with this process.
