Dye Sublimation Transfer Printing & Fixation for Technical Textiles

Are you looking for high quality rotary thermo processing equipment suitable for all kind of Polyester (or nylon) textiles? We offer solutions for roll-to-roll or single piece goods specifically designed for dye sublimation transfer printing and fixation for both dispersed dyes and pigments. From the professional start-up to the industrial high-volume manufacturer, Klieverik offers the best technical solutions for woven – non woven – knitted or strech, thin or thick material.

With Klieverik, you always make the right choice for the highest return on your investment. Here is how:

  • You will get high value end-products with brillliant colours and sharp edge definition
  • High productivity, high processing speed
  • First time right, less waste and fewer re-prints
  • High availability, limited down time due to quality components

 

Klieverik heat presses offers you:

  • Best sublimation and fixation of dyes by very constant temperature use of thermal oil for superior thermo-dynamic temperature control.
  • No colour differences side-to-side, over the production run or between the seasons; heating drum is completely filled with oil and oil is thoroughly mixed.
  • No distortion in the print pattern due to a very stable belt (PID) steering. No lateral movement of material due to the longest belt in the industry.
  • High speed at required contact time by making use of maximum drum surface and very constant temperature.
  • Quick heating up (+/- 1 hour) due to ample heating capacity and low quantity of oil in the drum.
  • Minimal maintenance required. Long life-time of machine, its components and belt; long belt and belt guiding system working without mechanical force. No edge or side elongation of the belt.
  • Ease of operation. Single button operation for pressure, speed, temperature.

Klieverik stands for high quality industrial digital printing. We have been active in transfer printing for more than 50 years and have thousands of machines in operation worldwide.

High Volume Roll-to-Roll production equipment

Klieverik already delivered transfer printing production equipment at a time that digital printing did not exist yet. First machines were installed 50 years ago; industrial big drum machines processing up to 10 m/min using 40 gr/m2 transfer paper printed on roto-gravure printing lines. Today, you can benefit from this depth experience.

 

The advantage of our pressure-less system is that the drum is always completely filled at all temperatures, ensuring an even temperature distribution over the full cylinder and duration of the production. An internal displacer limits the oil content enabling quick heating up.

 

Our high-volume machines can be electrically heated inside the drum orexternally with the use of a gas-operated thermal oil boiler. This option can lower your operation cost significantly and even contribute to an even better temperature consistence of +/- 1 degree Celsius under all circumstances. And in area’s where the availability of the electricity from the network is not always guaranteed, production may contintue with the use of a small generator for the drive system only.

 

The production lines can be equipped with driven and tension controlled winding and unwinding, edge cutting equipment, accumulators or scray’s for uninterrupted operation. As a standard the calenders are delivered with:

  • Quick change-over system for transfer paper
  • Heavy duty unwind axes, suitable for diameter 70 and 76 mm cores
  • Driven expander roller
  • Fabric cooling
  • Cooling down timer
  • 2 unwind positions for slit edge protection paper

Esko increases Kongsberg productivity with new i-Cut Production Console tools.

”Esko showcased new, innovative software tools that will help sign shops get the most productivity out of their finishing systems.”

“The i-cut Production Console (iPC) drives all Kongsberg table functionality, such as camera control, machine set up, tool recognition, calibration and tool adjustments. On display at ISA were new features Esko recently announced to the front-end operating system. With these features, precise production planning and prioritising in the digital finishing operation becomes easier to manage.”

“With the integration of a complete materials database, Esko has bundled decades of digital finishing expertise. The operator gets expert advice from the system on the selection and setup of tools and knives when setting up the job. Using this information takes guesswork out of the finishing production, speeding up the changeover between jobs and the entire production and improves consistency. The risk of damaging expensive materials and quality variations is drastically reduced.”

“Esko has also integrated its Kongsberg tables with its workflow automation software, Automation Engine. Automation Engine’s Device Manager gives better control over finishing production. Work in progress and the status and queues of all connected devices are clearly visualised on screen. The software determines optimal sheet nesting to increase production capacity. Operators use an intuitive drag-and-drop interface to prioritise table queues, insert rush jobs and even balance workloads between tables.”

“Esko knows from its customers that margins on short run digital print work are tightening. When a job is estimated and quoted, it is important to know how long the job will take to produce. With accurate job estimation, companies are able to communicate better quotes and forecast more accurate delivery times to their customers, ultimately protecting overall profitability. The new Kongsberg Estimating Software module delivers against these challenges. Packaging, signage and display designs are prepared, and production estimates are generated automatically, based on production metadata such as substrate type and thickness.”

“Also on display at ISA was Esko’s i-cut Suite, a collection of prepress and pre-production software solutions providing the tasks sign and display companies need, such as preflighting, file editing, cutting paths and nesting. It helps companies eliminate errors, save time and reduce waste.”

PTA 950- AUTOMATIC HEAT PRESS

The PTA 950- AUTOMATIC HEAT PRESS is a fully automatic printing machine fitted with two trays, and has a useful area of 7000x1000mm. Indicated for sublimation operations. While one piece is being pressed, the operator can prepare the next one, thus yielding a higher production speed.
The pressing operation is facilitated thanks to its pneumatic system that makes the work much more practical and causes less fatigue to the operator. The upper heating platen features double Teflon coating, casted-in heating resistance and milled in aluminum to provide a uniplaten pressure over the entire platen area.
Its ECO-PROFIT system certifies the reduction of power consumption in up to 35%, which is an improvement to its cost x benefit relationship.
The exclusive MSTC (Multi-Spot Temperature Control) is responsible for granting maximum quality to your prints. Fitted with 2 power-supply spots, it perplatens an even distribution of the heat to the entire useful area of the thermal platen without wasting the process power, maintaining color consistency and low costs.
The suction system is a pioneer option designed to prevent the transfer paper from becoming stained or from causing shadows on the fabric upon removal of the paper from the press.
