A Roller heat press machine is a machine for heat sublimation transfer color from sublimation paper to fabric.

To choose a roller heat press machine, you need to know:

1. The form or patterns of fabrics

Do you need a print for cut pieces or roll fabric, or both of them? If you need a print for the cut piece or both of roll & cut piece fabric, you should choose the roller heat press machine with table, and the drum size lower than 600mm, because bigger drum size with faster print speed, but for cut, piece need worker place fabric one by one, so printing speed cannot too fast.

If you need print for roll fabric only, you should choose the roll to roll heat press calender without table, and for diameter of drum can be any , depending on the production quantity you need.

2. The effective print width of your current textiles

You need to know the max. The print width of your fabric or sublimation paper. If the max. The print width you need is 1.5m, you better choose a 1.7m width roller heat press machine. Usually, the Calendar Felt width is 5cm shorter than the drum width, and the felt width will be shorter after a long time of use, so you need to set aside 10cm. So the drum width should be 15-20cm wider than the max. print width you need.

3. Calculate the production per day

You have to calculate the production you need in 1 day, and the machine will work for 8 hours or 24 hours. For calendar roller heat press machine, we have 210mm, 420mm, 600mm, 800mm and 1000mm, speed for 50m/h, 120m/h, 180m/h, 300m/h, 500m/h. So you can choose the suitable drum diameter of the roller heat transfer machine to meet your needs.

4. Enough facility to contain machine

You need to know the workspace you have and the machine’s size. When the roller heat press machine with the table, the table size can be custom-ed, so if your space is not enough, you can ask for a shorter working table.

5. Voltage in your facility

You should figure out the voltage of the roller heat press machine. Check with the supplier for the machine power, and voltage, then double-check with your electricity engineer for the power, voltage, and ampere, it will help you to make sure the machine can be running well in your workshop. Voltage is really important.

If you only do for small business and do not have industrial voltage for three-phase, then you can choose 210mm roller heat press calendars, because its power is 7.5-12KW only, and can make it 220V, single phase.

So, for the above five steps, you can figure out how to choose a roller heat press machine before you purchase a roller heat transfer machine.
