The Monna Lisa® ink delivery system was specifically designed for use with GENESTA® inks, which are supplied in special vacuum-sealed packages. The system is built into the left-hand side of the printing machine structure and can be accessed using two convenient doors.
It consists of 8 aluminium containers. These are the housing for the cartridges, which, once positioned, supply the printing heads by means of a pneumatic system. When print cartridges run down during printing, the operator is advised of the situation by both an acoustic warning and a message on the machine control monitor.
Such an occurrence does not cause printing to be interrupted, since the printer is equipped with a supplementary ink reserve tank, which makes it possible to replace the cartridge within a given amount of time. Once that time is up, if the cartridge has not been replaced, the printer automatically switches to standby.
