Recently, we Antprint have visited the whole pigment ink industry and have a deeper understanding of the whole dtf printer industry. Today, we will summarize the actual research situation of our team in the last half month and deeply analyze the application and market of paint hot stamping film transfer.
About the dtf printer machine
At present, the mainstream of the whole dtf printer is two 4720 nozzles. One nozzle is specially used to print white ink and the other nozzle is used to print four-color ink. In the early stage, due to the hot market and large customer demand, many customers need to pay in advance and make an appointment to order if they want to buy machines. At this stage, many machine manufacturers smell this tuyere, and more and more machine equipment factories have joined the market competition, and the relationship between supply and demand of the whole machine has eased. At present, the market price of the machine is about 30000 yuan. From the perspective of the cost of the rack and nozzle, with the easing of the relationship between supply and demand, the bargaining space of the machine is certainly not small.
The dtf film is a very mature market, but when applied to the transfer of paint hot stamping film, many films in the market can’t adapt to it. The main problem is that the paint ink will melt on the hot stamping film and the ink can’t hang on the hot stamping film. Due to this bottleneck, the price of hot stamping film that can meet the printing of paint ink in the market is relatively high. At present, the market price ranges from 8-15 yuan. The core of the hot stamping film is the coating technology of the film. Making a coating on the film can meet the requirements that the paint ink can not be printed on it. If this coating technology is popularized, the cost of the film will be greatly reduced, so as to reduce the cost of the whole hot stamping film transfer scheme. According to the investigation of our team, many people in the market are studying this coating. I believe the price of hot stamping film will gradually come down in the future.

Pigment dtf ink
In the dtf printer market, a good dtf ink first has good adaptability to the film. At present, the market is still in the stage of finding a scheme. Whoever can adapt to more and cheaper hot stamping films, who can get a share in the market. Another is the color, hand feel, wear resistance and tensile resistance of paint ink after transfer printing. At present, the paint ink and color ink in the market can basically meet the application. The ink bottleneck is mainly the white ink scheme. The performance of white ink can achieve the combination of color, hand feel, wear resistance and tensile resistance, which is the sweet cake of the market. At present, the price of paint ink in the market is about 200 RMB for color ink and about 250 RMB for white ink. We believe that this price is also on the high side. With the full competition in the market and the maturity of ink products, the price of hot stamping paint ink will also decline greatly. Like the price of hot stamping film mentioned above, the prices of hot stamping film and ink have decreased significantly, and the cost of the whole scheme has decreased, so as to replace and replace more traditional hot stamping films, and the market share and cake are becoming larger and larger.
DTF PRINTER INK
At present, after the paint hot stamping film is transferred and printed on the film with ink, it needs to be powdered before pressing the perm color. The powder itself is a kind of hot melt adhesive, which is pressed and ironed on the clothes together with ink. At present, the color and hand feel of different hot-melt adhesive powder in the market are still different after color transfer. The selection of hot-melt adhesive powder is also a technical activity. According to our investigation, the ideal scheme is to omit the process of powder spreading. It is the best to replace the process of powder spreading by printing hot sol. In this way, the process is simplified, and the hot-melt adhesive printed by the nozzle is more uniform, and the effect will be better in theory.
DTF PRINTER POWDER
The above is the summary of our team’s recent in-depth research on the dtf printermarket. We hope to inspire you. We also welcome personnel with relevant resources to communicate and integrate resources for common development. Through the visit and exchange of employees in the whole industrial chain, our entire antprint team is also very optimistic about this outlet. The market is constantly changing. What we need to do is to grasp the market development direction, lay out in advance and be a market leader.
