RISO (UK) has introduced its new two-colour MF9350 and the single-colour SF9390 duplicators that feature contemporary designs and several innovative features. Heading the list of benefits, both feature true 600-dpi resolution with enhanced image processing, resulting in higher print quality than previously achieved. “With a top speed of 190 sheets per minute (spm), the SF9390 is the fastest duplicator ever,” said the OEM. Two-colour duplicating can be achieved at speeds of up to 150 spm on the MF9350. Master-making times compared to previous models have also been reduced. Both duplicators are compatible with RISO’s new sustainable rice-bran-based ink – the base product of which is harvested near the point of manufacture, reducing impact on the environment. “Digital duplicators have evolved,” said Mike Murphy of RISO (UK). “They’re more feature-rich than ever and can now print even faster while offering higher print quality. The master-making and first copy times are reduced, ensuring productivity is maximized. Both now utilize new rice-bran inks, making them even more environmentally sustainable. Some say that duplicators don’t change, but our own dedicated research and development teams can prove that these devices can evolve.”
A new full-colour LCD touchscreen enables intuitive operation and clear layout of all functions. Print jobs can now be stored on the machines by installing a standard SD Memory Card and easily accessed for reprinting as and when required. Additional features include a paper memory print function where an encoded image can be printed on a laser printer, scanned in by the duplicator, and translated back to the original, thus ensuring confidentiality. For those wishing to control and monitor usage of the RISO MF and SF duplicators, an optional IC Card reader is now available to simplify and speed up the log-in process by means of a proximity or contact-less card. The new duplicators should be available early in 2018, said RISO.
