  • Publication number: 20120062671
    Abstract: A plateless-transfer printing apparatus having a plateless-transfer printing film and a transfer printing machine is disclosed. The plateless-transfer printing film includes a substrate and a transfer layer. The transfer layer has a release layer, a pattern layer, a white-ink layer and an adhesive layer. Those layers are orderly positioned on the substrate. In particular, the transfer printing machine has a pressure part, a heating part, an upper prop part and a lower prop part. An article-to-be-printed is firstly placed on the lower prop part. The plateless-transfer printing film positioned on the article is then heated by the heating part. Next, the pressure part presses both upper and lower prop parts, and the transfer printing film is formed on the surface of the article. It is featured that the pressure part evenly presses both the article and transfer printing film between the upper and lower prop parts.

  • Publication number: 20110155007
    Abstract: Disclosed is a device with colored pattern which is made by a plateless transfer printing technology. The device includes a body, an adhesive layer, a white ink layer and a pattern layer. The adhesive layer is formed on the body. The white ink layer is formed on the adhesive layer. The pattern layer is on the white ink layer. In particular, the pattern layer is customized to be a color ink layer which is printed with colored picture, character, symbol or number. In the manufacturing method of the device, a plateless transfer printing film is prepared to cover the body. Next, the film is transferred to the surface of the body, especially by a roller-embossing process. A blowing-embossing process is then applied to the plateless transfer printing film. Therefore, a fast and uniform transfer printing is achieved.
