Digital printing, technologically advanced inks, treatments, every day there’s a new discovery to help professionals to achieve new goals. We design a future where you’re leading, not following.


The key to the perfect printing: fabric pre-treatment

Would you ever paint your masterpiece on a dirty, uneven, low-quality canvas?
In the same way, having a properly prepared fabric is essential in any digital printing process. If you want your quality to be an unreachable competitive advantage, if you want to get deep and brilliant shades of colours, if you want to leave your clients astonished by what you can do for them, you must give maximum attention to the pre-treatment step. It is your secret ingredient.

You can now find out all the technical specs and requirements of our Pregen pre-treatment in the table below.

ATRAFIX: the permanent blanket adhesive

In our search for the perfect printing environment, we created the ATRAFIX ML adhesive series to give Monna Lisa printer blanket the right degree of tack it needs. It comes in different versions: ATRAFIX ML/T, ML/S and ML/K. ML/T can be used as a bottom layer, ML/S creates a soft film (more suitable for cellulose fibres) while ML/K creates a harder one (more suitable for silk and synthetic fibres). To periodically refresh the blanket, adhesive layers can be easily removed with ADHESOLV (environmentally friendly and not flammable solvent).

To know more about ATRAFIX technical spec, uses and mixes, check the table below.

Post-treatment: where the printed fabric becomes the product

Post-treatment is a term that includes several processes that happen after the printing and that change the printed fabric in the finished product. Let’s get deeper into these phases: traditional finishing, washing and innovative finishing.


Traditional printing vs Monna Lisa Digital Printing

As technology moves forward, processes become faster, cheaper, more flexible and, most important, greener. The transition from traditional to digital printing is no exception. Traditional printing doesn’t use pre-treatments, have overcomplicated and multiple steps: sample printing, colour separation engraving, paste preparation, paste and water disposal… digital printing grants better results, more flexibility and is much easier on the environment.

PrecisionCore means maximum print quality and productivity

Monna Lisa system features a new print head array with Epson’s PrecisionCore technology. PrecisionCore is the most advanced print head Epson has ever created. It steps up all the relevant parameters in a printing process: more precision, dot positioning, unmatched detail, ink efficiency, realiability… To give you just a few numbers, a standard 128 PrecisionCore MicroTFP print chips, configured as 32 four-chip print heads, provides 12,800 nozzles. For each colour.
Configurations go up to 64 print heads. Thanks to this technology, colour and pattern reproduction are exceptionally uniform, and even areas of solid colour and fine geometric patterning can be beautifully rendered while maintaining high throughput.
