Ricoh Corporation Introduces Priport JP4500

Tuesday, December 09, 2003

Press release from the issuing company

WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Dec. 8 -- Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today introduced the Ricoh Priport JP4500. A high-volume digital duplicator that provides publishing features, computer connectivity, greater printer ease, and a low cost per page, the Priport JP4500 is ideal for schools, non-profits, or any businesses looking for high print quality at a low cost. Non-profit organizations and print for pay shops often find themselves printing on less-than-ideal types of stock, causing difficulty in paper feeding that can lead to time-consuming print jobs. The Priport JP4500 is equipped with a retry paper feed mechanism whose reliability has been proven in field test and marketplace applications. From bond and NCR paper to construction stock, the Priport JP4500 can handle sheets up to 11" x 17" and envelopes 10" x 13". The Priport JP4500 also features print pressure sensors on the print rollers that gauge three major factors -- speed, temperature, and humidity -- adjusting the roller's pressure to optimize print quality. The ink control produces crisper images and manages ink delivery to improve consumption and enable more prints per cartridge. "Ricoh's Priport JP4500 Digital Duplicator is the solution for any organization in need of a reliable system that can provide high volume, high print quality fast and at a low cost," said Hede Nonaka, Vice President of Marketing for Ricoh Corporation. With the Priport JP4500, operators can select from five different duplicating speeds ranging from 60 to 120 impressions per minute. This allows the speed to be varied according to the requirements of a particular job. Additional productivity-enhancing features include: Control of the printed image - User-selected image tuning adjustment for letter, photo, letter/photo auto separation and tint image printing allow for enhanced control of the printed image. Image density is also user adjustable to print light, normal, dark, and darker. Economy - At 4,000 prints per master, the Priport JP4500 masters achieve twice the run life of typical digital duplicators. For print runs from 50 to 4,000 copies, the Priport JP4500 costs less per print than copiers or laser printers. New Design Operation Panel - The new operation panel is designed for easy access and versatility. A large LCD screen is positioned at the center of the panel. Easy Spot Color Printing - The Priport JP4500 system features a lightweight slide out cylinder, which can be easily changed to produce impressions with color. The Priport JP4500 also features enhanced controller connectivity. With optional network controllers, the JP4500 can print from virtually any connected Windows, Macintosh or network operating system. The Priport JP4500 is now available at a suggested retail price of $9,995.
