There are Five types of hot stamping presses according to the stamping methods and substrate's shapes.
Hot stamping machine and heat transfer machine are special printing equipment that transfer the metal coating on the hot stamping film or the printing pattern on the heat transfer film to other products. Distinguished from heat transfer machines: Machines that use various hot stamping films are called hot stamping machines, and machines that use heat transfer films are called heat transfer machines. However, both the bronzing machine and the heat transfer machine can complete the conversion of functions through necessary structural upgrades, and it is actually difficult to distinguish them. For the convenience of expression, there is only a literal difference between a hot stamping machine and a thermal transfer machine, and there is actually no obvious difference in their process and structure.
Bronzing machine and thermal transfer machine are both heat-pressing machines, which use heat and pressure to transfer graphics and text. Plane machines use heating tubes and heating plates. Silicone roller machines use radiation way of heating.
The main considerations for the hot stamping machine and heat transfer machine are: what kind of hot plate and silicone roller to use;
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 roller.so,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.
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.
