Epson, a leader in digital textile printing, aims to become digital textile industry's number-one solution provider. It wants to continue to boost the competitive advantage of its products and achieve growth in new domains, such as textile, by becoming a valued and indispensable partner. It also believes that the time for digital to replace analogue is now.

“Epson brings unique technological expertise including our original and proprietary micro piezo inkjet technology, which we have perfected for DTP and includes our state-of-the-art PrecisionCore print heads. The most modern and sophisticated technology was the design and development of our crown jewel: the Monna Lisa printer series that, introduced in 2003, launched a new era in fabric printing,” said Giovanni Pizzamiglio, direct to fabric sales & marketing director, EMEAR & Americas, Epson Italy, while speaking to Fibre2Fashion.

Monna Lisa allowed the textiles market to overcome constraints of the traditional printing such as production time and impact on the environment, while offering significant advantages such as speed of response to production demands, even for small batches and higher environmental sustainability.

Epson is one of the few companies that controls all elemental parts of an industrial textile printing solution. “Our solution combines Robustelli's high-end manufacturing, with Epson proprietary print head technology and For.Tex's knowledge for dyes, inks and chemicals for fabric pre/post treatment. This is available ‘ready to use’ to our customers, without the need for them to spend money and time to identify a solution suitable for their needs,” added Pizzamiglio.

“For.Tex specialises in the sales of textile printing inks and in the manufacture and sale of essential treatment agents used in the textile printing processes. Thanks to For.Tex's expertise in the ink sector, the acquisition in 2015 strengthened Epson's DTP business, widening a strong know-how across the entire textile printing process, from strategy and design through manufacturing and sales,” said Paolo Crespi, commercial director, For.Tex, while speaking to F2F.

“Fratelli Robustelli is located in Como, the heart of the Italian and European high-quality textile industry, and specialises in the development, manufacturing and sale of digital inkjet textile printers-Monna Lisa series. The series is a result of our expertise in the textiles market together with Epson's high-quality printing technology,” said Riccardo Robustelli, director, Fratelli Robustelli.

Epson, For-Tex and Fratelli Robustelli have been partners for 15 years, bringing together their expertise and competencies to provide a digital textile printing total solution. (KD)
