MS Printing Solutions & JK Group @ ITMA 2023 Are Back to the Future

See our innovation in our machines, inks and all of our hard work.

If you think that digital printing is an opportunity for growth and improvement, join us and discover what we have in store for you (8 – 14 June 2023 – Milan, Rho – Hall 7, Booth D206)

Here is a sneak preview: THE FUTURE of Pigment

the culmination of our R&D team’s great effort. A whole, unique system that changes the approach to pigment printing, enabling us to reduce the CO2 emissions and the water consumption of the entire process, thanks to integrated innovative solutions, to halve printing process steps with a chemistry that doesn’t require pre- and post- treatment and to perfectly manage and reproduce colour charts with an increasing in colour yield up to 20%.

What are the components of this solution?

• A completely reengineered JP7, a digital scanning printing machine designed to print pigment with the goal to radically reduce water and energy consumption thanks to new, integrated innovative Tech solutions.

• A new dryer designed ad-hoc for this system. This system is capable of polymerizing and drying on-the-fly.

• Digistar Pigment 4K, JK Group newest ink, to the point where it is patent pending, that doesn’t require pre- and post-treatment, specifically designed for this system, where it reduces the digital printing process steps by 50%, the water consumption by 100% and the energy consumption noticeably.

• System Plus Software, the new management software that integrates calibration, printing software and ink for a perfect colour management, thus guaranteeing a colour yield up to 20% higher, while improving efficiency.

• The goal of The New Era of Single Pass is to design a new generation of single pass machines. It is exactly what will happen. A genius combination that unites the versatility and size of a scanning machine with the rapidity (75 m/min), immediacy and printing automation of a single pass machine. The single pass concept has been revolutionized, with an emphasis on sustainability and the reduced space needed. You’ll also get a chance to preview the new AI-based system we’re developing, which will exponentially improve the output quality.

• Take A Step into R&D with a real concept machine, a revolution of our historical JP4 , equipped with all the new and innovative solutions we are going to introduce in the next future (those you can have a look at in our R&D corner). From new electronics to new printheads and onwards with a brand new power supply, an in-line qualitative print analysis system, we have it all.

• MS Heritage, MiniLario, has been the first scanning machine with 64 printheads. Our heritage now includes more than 20 machines that are in operation. The printing carriage position has been improved and revised to increase its stability and precision. This will allow it to print with even greater reliability, and take advantage of its high-speed printing. MiniLario will be printing Digistar Reactive BIF, branded by JK. Our BIF (Bag in Box) offers ever increasing sustainable benefits and environmental respect while maintaining our inks’ usual high quality.

What else?

• A new organisational model, with improvement as its heart. In a very short time frame, we want to have a global footprint that is expanded, operational efficiency upgraded, and business exchanges accelerated. This results in a model that is highly scalable, allowing production to be quickly extended according to seasonality and peaks in demand.

• A new range of services, as our Maintenance Program, that revolutionised our Service department and the way it operates by reducing costs, boosting the productivity and assuring machines’ top performances.

• New dryers portfolio, not only have they been designed for the new pigment system but are also going to accompany each one of our machines. Modularity allows drying and curing to be done in the same machine, which reduces the cost and space needed, and therefore the CO2 emissions.

• The ever more performing ink series, with waveforms dedicated to MS machines assuring the best control of ink drops – thus high-quality printing results.

There’s so much more to discover. There wouldn’t be enough space to explain all what is new, so we invite you to join us in our booth and to witness our demo sessions, find out the scheduling on our social media or download it by scanning the QR code at the top of this announcement.
