'Direct to Garment' printer and Neon Pink toner on the Pro C7110sx – as well as further endorsing its ‘print partnership’ philosophy
Ricoh brings ‘print partnership’ to life at this year’s IPEX 2017, as it showcases two innovative new technologies, supported by a dedicated team of industry experts who will be on hand to help visitors understand the best stocks and materials to deliver growth opportunities.
Tim Carter, Sales Director, Commercial Print, Ricoh UK comments; “Partnership is important in any industry and for us is a key driver in our commitment to IPEX. Digital technology continues to be a significant opportunity for printers, but what we have recognised is the role manufacturers such as Ricoh must play to offer genuine lifetime customer support, as printers mature with digital. IPEX therefore represents an ideal chance for visitors to network with experts, look at the sophisticated products digital can produce and understand where the profits really lie. Digital maturity, and the sophisticated products that digital can produce, is a significant opportunity for printers to increase profits.”
IPEX will be the formal public launch event for these exciting additions to the Ricoh portfolio:
The ‘direct to garment’ printer (Ri 6000) is ideally suited to commercial printers looking for ways to cross-skill their employees with ‘simple to understand’ processes.
Suited to garments including t-shirts, sweatshirts, socks and bags, the RICOH Ri 6000 can print on cotton-polyester blends and is perfect for printing on 100% cotton. It is ideal for screen printers, specialist ‘direct to garment’ printers, sign & display printers, and commercial printers. Ricoh UK also fully services and supports both the Ri 3000 and Ri 6000 with an annual maintenance contract.
The Pro (C7110sx) will be displaying its fifth colour capability enhanced by the recent launch of the new neon pink colour option.
The Pro C7100X Series complements offset in terms of image quality with high productivity and has a series of five colour production presses, offering the possibility to print white or clear. They add value as they raise performance and profits.
Tim adds, “Today’s customers demand tight delivery times on short length runs. You need a reliable digital press that has high uptime, meets tight customer deadlines, but also handles a wide variety of applications and extend its offering with fifth colour opportunities.”
Rob Fisher, IPEX Event Director 2017, concludes; “I believe Ricoh’s focus on customer service through its print partnership philosophy is helping to take our industry forwards and provide a long-term solution. In addition, I am pleased to see the technologies being exhibited at the show will support printers and help provide creative solutions to increase profitability.”
You will find Ricoh at stand B390.
