The role of suction system in piezoelectric inkjet printers

piezoelectric inkjet printersIn the printing process of piezoelectric inkjet printers, I believe that everyone has noticed that there are many regularly distributed small holes on the flat sheet metal platform. These holes are used as the suction platform for piezoelectric inkjet printers. At the same time, the fan under the platform is combined to form the suction system of the printer.

In the printout of a wide-format inkjet printer, the suction fan blows forward and the rear air replenishes. In this way, a strong air flow is formed behind the fan, and a small suction force is generated through the small hole in the platform to suck the printing medium. The high speed operation of the fan creates a difference in pressure between the top and bottom, which makes the print medium close to the printing platform, ensuring that the print medium is flatter throughout the printing process. This is the complete process of the suction system working in our digital inkjet printing machine.

piezoelectric inkjet printersSimply put, the function of the suction system is to ensure that the print media and the printing platform can be closely fitted to ensure that the printing can not be arched, so that the sublimation textile printer prints more smoothly and smoothly, and the drawing effect is better.

In addition, because the horizontal tensile properties and toughness of different materials are different, for materials with small horizontal tensile properties and poor toughness, only a small suction force is required to keep the material flat. If the suction force is too large, the printing medium will not move. This affects the printhead. For a harder material, if the suction is too small, it will cause the material to be flat due to insufficient suction, thus affecting the printing effect. Therefore, the suction system in a wide format printer is essential during the printing process.

The ORIC series of piezoelectric printing printers are designed with suction and heating in one design on the suction platform. At the same time of printing output, it is also possible to increase the drying speed of the ink moderately, so that the final print quality of the printer is more vivid and realistic, and is widely loved by customers.

To Know More About Large Format Digital Textile Printers

Using digital inkjet printers for textile printing can be more complex than printing on other materials, like vinyl or paper. However, by understanding a few basics about the chemistry, equipment and process, inkjet fabric printing is achievable with great print results and can become profitable for your business.

The first fundamental element of fabric printing is to understand the chemistry in the process. First off, there is no silver bullet. There is no single ink type that will adequately print to all fiber types in a simple, one step process. It’s unfortunate, but this is the reality and it means we must understand how different types of fibers interact with the available ink choices.

Each ink has specific fiber types to which it will properly bond. Reactive dyes and textile pigments are commonly used for natural fibers like cotton. Disperse dyes (aka dye-sub inks) are reserved for polyester, while acid dyes work well with nylon and silk.

Each of the dyes requires the fabric to have a special inkjet-receptive coating to control dot gain and helps to ensure proper fixation. Many fabrics can be purchased with the coating already applied. Also, there are select sources that will apply the coating (as a service) to a fabric that you provide. Lastly, for high production scenarios, purchasing your own coating machine may be the best option.

The Process and Finishing Equipment
The inks each have a specific process to be followed to achieve proper color and fixation (i.e. permanence on the fabric). Nylon, for example, has a more complex process outlined as follows:


1. Coat fabric with specific coating to receive acid dye (Or buy fabric already coated)
2. Print fabric using the best suited printer

3. Steam fabric in a textile steamer for ink fixation

4. Wash fabric in a washing machine to remove pre-coat and excess/un-fixed ink

Other processes, like those for polyester for example, are simpler. However, each process requires specific equipment that is required for the best results.


Digital sublimation printer purchase depends on practicality rather than price

There are still a lot of industries that can use digital sublimation printers. As long as we need it, we can actually purchase equipment through different channels. In particular, many businesses on the Internet also provide printers, which are very simple to purchase. However, some large printing plants require a large number of equipment, and we naturally hope that the unit price can be more favorable. However, when we buy a digital sublimation printer, it is impossible to just look at the price, and more must consider the practicality, so that it can really be guaranteed.

First, make sure the model is needed and then measure the price.

Because the model of the sublimation textile printer we need is different, there will be a big difference in the price of the equipment. It is recommended that you first determine your needs and then choose the right type of equipment. Especially for some large manufacturers, we must first define their own requirements, and then go to buy sublimation paper for inkjet printers, so the price is also easier to compare. Defining your own needs, it is naturally easier to pick a high-performance, high-performance sublimation printer, which can save us a lot of money.

Second, brand measurement is critical.

It does seem that many wide format production printers are similar, even if the brands are different, but the functions and styles will not be much different. In fact, this type of product still depends on practicality and quality. If a digital sublimation printer has excellent quality and excellent performance, it is naturally worthy of our selection and recognition. It is recommended that the overall measurement should be done, and it must be clear that what type of product is more worthy of our recognition. As long as the product can be selected, it can ensure the subsequent use, and it can also avoid the problem of subsequent problems.

How to solve the problem of slow transmission of thermal sublimation printer?

thermal sublimation printerSome users report that the data transfer speed is slow when the thermal sublimation printer prints. Is it a thermal sublimation printer problem or a low computer configuration? What is the reason that the big size sublimation printer is transmitting data too slowly? Below we make a brief explanation, mainly from the following four aspects.

First, the thermal dye sublimation printer related drivers should be installed correctly. USB interface thermal sublimation printer, be sure to let the USB install the driver. The network interface thermal sublimation printer is online and the IP is set according to the online installation instructions provided by the manufacturer.

thermal sublimation printerSecond, the computer configuration is low or the computer system is running slowly. RIP software has limited data cache space, and the computer operating system is infected with malicious code viruses, which causes data transmission to be interrupted or slow. For this problem, you can try to replace the online test print on your computer and perform a virus operation check on your computer system. Reinstall the relevant RIP software and set up RIP software in the big size sublimation printer to set up enough data cache space.

Third, the data line between the wide format inkjet printer and the computer connection. Such as USB interface sublimation textile printer, use USB data for online data transmission. The USB cable is too long or of poor quality and can affect the camera’s data transfer problems. If it is a network interface sublimation textile printer, check the online network cable. The crystal head of the network cable is in good contact. If the sort order is correct, the network cable is not sorted correctly and the crystal head is not loaded correctly, which will affect the data transfer.

thermal sublimation printerFourth, the network online big size sublimation printer. It is best to use an integrated network card or an external PCI network card, and do not use a USB external network card. Because the real machine prints online in the USB external network card, there is a data transfer jam, the wide format inkjet printer prints slowly, and both sides have pauses and other faults.

How much ink does a digital sublimation printer consume per square meter?

How many milliliters of ink per square meter is the piezoelectric digital sublimation printer? I believe this is a question many friends want to know. In fact, this problem is very abstract, there is no uniform numerical value. Therefore, the ink consumption per square meter of piezoelectric wide format inkjet printer is affected by many factors, we can understand in detail below.

In fact, the amount of ink consumed per square meter of a sublimation textile printer is related to the color coverage and the print quality you choose. For example, if there are two pairs of pictures, the A4 format, one is 100% color coverage, and the other is 10% color coverage. The amount of ink consumed by the two is definitely different. The same picture, if you print separately with 1440DPI and 720DPI, the amount of ink consumed is different. The higher the printing accuracy, the higher the amount of ink consumed.

In general, if it is at 80% color coverage. It takes about 12 ml for a digital sublimation printer to print one square meter.
