The reason for low transfer rate
Firstly the choice of textile.
Secondly the suitable of ink, our paper basicly suit for all kind ink.
Thirdly the reason of temperature and machine, at present JV33 is good, the transfer effects of ROLAND 740K is not good.
The problem of sheet crimping
Crimping is mainly rub print head, effect the useful life of print head, and also is not convenient to cut the paper.
