Sublimation Printers: To Get Amazing Designs

The Dye-sublimation printing technology was developed in the year 1957. In this printing technology the print heads get heated up while passing through the film. This forces the solid dyes to get vaporized and diffused on the glossy surface of the printing media, which in turn creates a gentle gradation for each pixel at their edges.

The ribbon consists of three colored panels (cyan, magenta, and yellow) and one empty panel to hold the lamination material that is used as overcoating. The whole telas personalizadas chile printing cycle is repeated for four times where the first three cycles lay the colors onto the media to form a complete image, while the last one to give a laminated top. This is to prevent dye from resublimating when exposed to warm conditions.

The inks used for this dye-sublimation printing are aqueous dye sublimation ink and solvent dye sublimation ink. The speed of the printer is decided by the rate at which, the temperature changes in the heating elements. Usually heating the elements is easy by using electric current for heating. But cooling them to change from a darker colour to a lighter colour consumes more time. So this requires a fan or heatsink as an attachment with the printer. The speed can be increased by using multiple heads so that one head will be cooling while the other one is working. The printers eject the finished copy only when it is all dried.

Dye-sublimation printing is used in medical imaging, polyester fabric printing, and graphic proofing. The printed fabric is washable since it won’t affect the quality of the image. Photographers use these printers to print instant images with laminated finishing.
