Epson displays Monna Lisa printer at Heimtextil 2017

Epson, a pioneer in digital printing technology, and For.Tex. and F.lli Robustelli, that are now part of the Group, are showing the Monna Lisa printer, the digital textile printer revolutionising the textile printing market, at Heimtextil 2017, the trade fair for home and contract textiles, in Germany, from January 10 to 13, 2017, in pavilion 6, stand C10.

The three companies will be at Heimtextil to show the Home Textile and furnishing market digital printing on fabrics using high-quality pigments with a low environmental impact.

The Monna Lisa is the result of more than a decade’s partnership between the three companies. It is a production digital printer with proven piezoelectric inkjet Epson technology.

The Monna Lisa’s success is due to several factors. Not only is its quality and reliability crucial, and the printheads, inks and mechanics unique, continuous research ensures its excellence. Based on the numbers of Monna Lisa units installed worldwide, Epson estimates that in 2015 approximately 900,000 square metres of pigment printed fabric was created (40 per cent increase compared to 2014).

Giovanni Pizzamiglio, Epson Europe head of sales and member of the Fratelli Robustelli board said, “Monna Lisa is a viable alternative for the textile market due to several key characteristics including reducing production time, ability to print on any type of fabric or using any design variant. It is possible to streamline sampling and prototyping production at a drastically reduced cost and with the best quality. Lower energy and water consumption make it a cutting-edge printer in the extraordinary evolution of printing technologies used in the textile industry.”

Since 2005, Monna Lisa has been available in the home textile market, with a model using 320 cm light pigments. Its key feature is its ability to carry out high-quality printing on fabrics, whether it is made of cellulosic fibres or those mixed with polyester. This is possible due to the use of Genesta pigment inks, designed by Epson in partnership with For.Tex. The fact it does not require steaming and washing processes makes the Monna Lisa, with Genesta pigment inks, an eco-friendly solution, with low environmental impact. Fabrics printed with Monna Lisa machines have high colour rendering, durability and reproducibility. This is essential for pre-treated fabrics used in the home textile industry. (GK)
