MS launches Mini Lario

MS Printing Solutions, which is part of the Dover Digital Printing portfolio, used the recent Itma show to launch its Mini Lario textile printer. MS says that the printer has been developed to fill a gap in the market between its LaRio and JPK-EVO printers in terms of speed and return on investment. 

MS used Itma 2019 to launch this Mini Lario textile printer.

However, unlike the existing Lario, the Mini Lario is a scanning printer. It takes substrates from 1.8 to 3.2m, with up to eight colours. It uses Kyocera printheads with maximum resolution of 600 x 600 dpi and 16 greyscale levels with drop sizes ranging from 4 to 72pl. There are eight heads per colour, or 64 in total. 

It can be configured with two sets of CMYK for a maximum speed of 18.2mpm, which translates into 1094 metres/hour for both fabric and paper. However, this drops to 935mph for fabric and 1045 mph for paper when used with eight colours. Furthermore, realistic production speeds are closer to 710 mph for fabric and 670 mph for paper with dual CMYK, and 585 mph for fabric and 670mph for paper with eight colours

It was presented at the show with a new in-line fabric pre-treatment that should reduce set up times and allow it to print to uncoated materials. Naturally, MS claims that this will also reduce waste including water and energy usage. Paolo Milini, MS Printing Solutions’ president, commented: “Developing sustainable technologies is our responsibility towards future generations and is the milestone of our green strategy.”

MS has a website at though its not exactly a fount of information.
