Sublimate :: Monti Antonio Piece to Roll Calenders

Monti Antonio Piece to Roll Calenders


Monti Antonio piece to roll calenders are ideal for pre-cut apparel production as well as high volume display graphics and decor. Piece to roll calenders, also known as rotary heat presses, offer more flexibility than a roll to roll calender and higher productivity than a piece to piece heat press.

Piece to roll calenders operate in three different ways:

  1. Load and run an entire roll of direct printed fabric
  2. Load a roll of transfer paper and sublimate to a roll of fabric
  3. Load a roll of transfer paper and sublimate to pre-cut fabric pieces

Like all Monti Antonio calenders, the piece to roll calenders will boost productivity in any shop with their digital controls, programmable settings, flexibility and efficiency.

Although outfitted with a feed table for pre-cut pieces, these are precise roll-to-roll dye sublimation calenders that use an oil-heated drum for even heat. The computerized interface provides automation for startup time, profiles and precise pressure and timing.


  • All movements are controlled with independent, synchronized motors, avoiding the chain or pulley systems used by competitors that create unpredictable variables from job to job.
  • A central resistor heating system, patented by Monti Antonio, within the oil-filled drum guarantees perfect uniformity of temperature over the entire surface of the cylinder, maintaining an extremely low electrical consumption.
  • The vacuum-sealed drum cannot leak unlike end-cap systems that eventually wear out.
  • Special motors for automatic, constant tension for printing and protection paper at the exit of the machine.
  • Built-in alert system in case of power loss or compressed air loss.
  • PLC program for setting machine start-up and shut-down times as well as settings for specific papers.
  • The NOMEX felt belt guarantees optimum printing results and a long working life.
  • Multifunctional electronic meter-counter, with alarm to predetermine the length of production runs.
  • Temperature cooling system for printed fabric exit, complete with fan.
  • Front touch-screen keyboard for production data access and programming.
