Epson Monna Lisa ML-16000/Hy

Hybrid printer developed to reproduce the most sophisticated effects for modern printed fabrics with gold, silver, and glossy tints.


The continuously evolving textile market requires increasingly sustainable and efficient solutions in order to deliver unique results and low-impact productivity. The Monna Lisa ML-16000/Hy is the ideal printer for companies that need to optimise the production of complex prints and offer the market more creativity.

With the latest portfolio addition, the Monna Lisa series – already known for its print quality, ink optimisation, extreme flexibility, and sustainability – can reproduce special effects on any fabric without requiring any subsequent steps. These range from glossy lacquer through to gold and silver metal and opaque white.

The combination of the Monna Lisa ML-16000/Hy’s 8 colour inkset, 16 PrecisionCore printheads and 64 nozzles, finally enables the digital printing of special effects, previously the exclusive preserve of conventional screen or cylinder printing.

Its Genesta water-based inks guarantee colour accuracy and resistance in fabric prints, while pastes developed and produced by Epson Como Printing Technologies create the special effects.

PrecisionCore printhead technology guarantees the exceptional quality for which Epson is renowned while delivering the high speeds necessary for commercial and industrial printing. At the heart of this technology is the MicroTFP next-generation printing chip. PrecisionCore technology perfectly embodies Epson’s goal of delivering unrivalled levels of value and performance to the widest possible customer base.
