The working principle of the sublimation printer is to set four colors of solid pigments on a rotating drum. Tens of thousands of semiconductor heating elements are installed on the rotating drum. When the temperature of these heating elements rises to a certain level, it can be The solid pigment is directly converted into a gaseous state, and then the gas is sprayed onto the printing medium. So how to use the sublimation printer?

Principle of Dye Sublimation printer

Dye-sublimation technology uses heat energy to transfer pigments to the printing medium. The intensity of each color is controlled by the temperature change of the print head, and the maximum can have 256 levels. Magenta, yellow, and cyan are the three primary colors we call every day. Any other color can be combined with these three primary colors. Dye-sublimation printers achieve multiple colors and color depths through the combination of three colors. However, in the dye-sublimation printing process, the three colors are not printed at the same time, but one color is used each time, and the required color requirements are combined through three printings. It is for this reason that the printing medium needs to pass through the printer 3 times during the printing process, which also makes the printing process of the sublimation printers are relatively slow, but high-quality photo printing enough to make up for this shortcoming. Some dye-sublimation printers have a film attaching process after three colors. That is, the special materials on the ribbon are sublimated on the three-layer color and attached to the paper surface to form a protective film, which can prevent oxidation and discoloration, waterproof, and anti-fingerprints. This is something that inkjet printers cannot do. The ribbon of the dye-sublimation printer is disposable, and the ribbon is usually sold together with the printing paper. Each roll of the ribbon has three colors of yellow, red, and blue as a set, and each photo is printed. ribbon. Thus, while sublimation printers can also print at a low resolution, printing costs can not be reduced, only a slight increase in printing speed. It is recommended to always print at the highest resolution.

Precautions for dye sublimation printers

After printing with a dye-sublimation printer, the printed images and text will leave a latent image on the used ribbon. If the content is a body of information, it is recommended to save the ribbon and properly after use. Dye-sublimation printer resolution is also called output resolution, which refers to the maximum number of dots that can be printed per inch in both the horizontal and vertical directions during print output, usually expressed in "dots/inch". The so-called maximum resolution is the maximum resolution of the printer can print, which is the resolution limit of the so-called printout. The printer resolution usually refers to the maximum resolution of the printer, and the resolution of the dye-sublimation printer is generally around 300×300dpi.
