Ricoh Europe, London – Print Service Providers (PSPs) have the potential to enhance revenue, reduce operational costs and empower business growth thanks to the new Ricoh Pro C9200 Series of digital sheet fed colour presses.
Building on the highly successful Ricoh ProTM C9100 technology platform, the Pro C9200 Series offers increased image quality with outstanding registration. Its new Auto Colour Diagnosis technology assures colour consistency and stability by detecting and adjusting subtle tone fluctuations while printing.
Expanded media capability is delivered with enhanced long sheet capability of up to 1,030mm auto duplex 1,260mm simplex and increased media support up to 450gsm.
Productivity is increased with models printing at up to 115ppm (A4) or 135ppm (A4) while streamlined production is enabled with inline options offering the versatility to produce a wide variety of applications. A new, intuitive 17inch operator panel increases usability.
Continuous operation is enhanced with improved purge control. Maximum uptime is further assured by Operator Replaceable Units and replenishable toner on the fly.
A range of Digital Front End options are available with Fiery E-45 and E-85 from EFI and Ricoh’s high performance DFE TotalFlow Print Server R-62 which offers excellent integration with various pre-press workflow solutions including Prinergy from Kodak and Apogee from Agfa. Available as an option is IPDS support for AFP datastream printing environments.
“There is no other digital colour sheet fed press that matches the value performance package of the Ricoh Pro C9200,” states Eef de Ridder, Director, Commercial Printing of the Commercial & Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe. “All these advances have been developed to flexibly support higher quality, on demand production of a wider range of services, printing on a broad choice of substrate types that includes synthetics, carbonless paper, coated and uncoated stock and envelopes. They help PSPs maximise production uptime and expand capabilities to more efficiently, cost effectively and profitably answer broadening market demands.”
The Ricoh Pro C9200 series will be available across EMEA from June. It will be showcased during a series of events across Europe this summer under the Art of the New 2018 banner.
