Epson and its subsidiaries, For.Tex and F.lli Robustelli, are displaying the new Monna Lisa Evo Tre 16 printer at the ongoing FESPA 2018 expo, in hall 2.2, stand D30. FESPA, a global exhibition for large format printing, is being held from May 15 to 18, 2018, in Berlin, Germany. Epson is a leader in inkjet printers and digital printing systems.
The digital printer was designed by the engineering company F.lli Robustelli and boasts the latest innovative and exclusive proprietary printing technology, Epson PrecisionCore which is considered the standard for high-quality digital printing in the industrial textile sector.
The new Monna Lisa Evo Tre on-show has 16 heads, with eight colours and the ability to use acid, reactive, disperse and pigment inks. It is extremely versatile and can adapt to a continually evolving market such as textiles. Monna Lisa Evo Tre 16 is available in three different print heights (180-220-320 cm) and meets the needs of a market which requires high print quality but not high productivity – instead, it focuses on products of excellence.
At FESPA 2018, Monna Lisa Evo Tre 16 is demonstrating pigment printing, an application which is strongly growing. This is due to its economic and environmentally friendly benefits, since it does not require steaming and washing as post-treatment phases.
Thanks to the optimised updating and maintenance protocols developed by F.lli Robustelli’s engineering team, the non-replacement of the Monna Lisa structural parts results in a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions compared to an alternative and more invasive revamping cycle. This reduction can be qualified as an indirect environmental benefit.
