MS Printing Solutions responds to the rapidly changing demands of the market with advanced technology digital textile printing solutions. The company, taking an important step to reduce chemical waste, CO2 emissions and water consumption by designing the Lario single-pass digital printing machine in 2011, shapes its work in line with supporting the sustainable production chain of textile printing companies. In addition, especially with the pandemic, the demand for online shopping has increased in recent years and the time to market has been shortened, while digital textile printing offers effective solutions to the new needs that arise with this process.
MS Lario digital textile printing machine competes with conventional printing machines in productivity
The online-shopping demand stands out for less re-order predictability and the collections’ high customization. The single-pass technology is an ideal option in this sense, even if printing runs decline has reduced the gap in production capacity compared to the latest generation scanning machines. The 32 MS Lario, providing reliability and productivity close to the conventional printing machines, operates worldwide with a printing production speed up to 75 m/min. The Lario single-pass makes the most out of printing heads’ performance, offering high and constant productivity over time. This result is made possible by collaboration between the MS and JK R&D Teams, advancements in the development of the latest generation printheads and inks, and the designing of customized inks and waveforms.
Multiple service set offers high production efficiency
A cleaning environment and regular maintenance are essential for machines as they ensure the longevity of printheads, electronic components and the machine itself. This process can easily be done in single-pass printing machines. In addition, MS offers the same diligent service for inks through JK Group service engineers, designing a multiple service set that helps to control costs and simplify the activities of the users, optimizing performance and return of investments. The multiple service set ensures the best production efficiency, maximizing profits.
More efficient production in fewer steps with digital textile printing
It takes approximately 3 times less space than the rotary or flatbed printing department to configure a digital printing department, which offers a faster, eco-friendly and less costly process. This is possible thanks to a shorter process with 7 working steps instead of the 14 steps required by the conventional printing process.
MS explains one of the 6 good reasons for choosing digital textile printing technology as consuming 60% less water and 30% less energy compared to the standard rotary textile process. The process carbon footprint is approximately 40% less, and since colour management is through software, only the ink quantity necessary to achieve colours and designs is used, resulting in 20% less inks wastage in this technology. There is almost zero wastage on the fabric during the design/colourways change, thus granting a lean workflow as well as expanding the creativity of designers at low costs. In addition, digital printing allows the potential production of infinity colourways and designs. The company underlines that the shift from traditional printing to digital printing requires a training process for those working in the textile printing industry, and aims to support its customers in this change with the different training levels it has set at MS Academy.
MS emphasizes that consumers are more mindful of sustainable and responsible purchases than ever for the entire production chain and says; “We desire to return 10L of water to every human being. This is possible by replacing the traditional cylinder machines with 300 Lario Single-pass. Together we will work to achieve even greater success.”
