Riso’s U.S. release on June 15 of its latest advance in high-speed color printing – the ComColor FW Series – targets this new market segment. This is the fifth generation of cut-sheet, colour inkjet printers that the company has brought to market. The FW series is 33% slimmer than previous models due to an integrated facedown tray, and has a newly re-designed full-colour touchpanel that’s adjustable and customizable. Output is 120 pages per minute in full colour. The scanner has also been improved for office use, and can scan both sides of a document simultaneously at a rate of 100 pages per minute.
The new printer line, said the OEM, is designed to serve the requirements of the “Business Inkjet” market segment – those end users who require the high production speed and advanced capabilities that a Riso can provide, but don’t necessarily require the high volume output of a production printer.
ComColor inkjet printers utilize Riso’s exclusive Forcejet technology. This heatless imaging system requires no fusing during the printing process and has a short, straight paper path, enabling extremely high printing speeds in full colour, and a cold, flat and dry output that’s ideal for transitioning to finishing equipment.
Riso Incorporated, headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Riso Kagaku Corporation, Japan’s leading manufacturer and distributor of high-speed inkjet printers and digital duplicators.
