Ricoh’s digital colour production printer series is designed to help reduce print costs for in-house print centres, corporate reprographics departments, print-for-pay and commercial printers. The Ricoh Pro C5200s and Ricoh Pro C5210s feature high print speeds and colour quality across a wide range of media with a variety of finishing options, thus helping improve turnaround times and expand capabilities. “These devices boast an affordable price point and require less space, helping them fit easily into these varied environments,” said the OEM. The series delivers full-colour and black-and-white documents at up to 65 and 80 pages per minute at 1,200 x 4,800 dpi VCSEL quality. They support media up to 360 gsm simplex and 300 gsm duplex at 13” x 19.2” standard, with optional oversized media support of 13” x 27.5”. Print quality is boosted further through the use of an enhanced fusing belt, which provides more consistent transfers and toner adhesion on specialty stocks.
“With the Ricoh Pro C5200s series, we’re helping expand customers’ capabilities so they can serve as a one-stop shop for their clients, whether they’re an in-plant or print-for-pay,” said John Fulena, Vice President, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh USA. “At Ricoh, we understand that communicators really have to go the extra mile to stand out to their customers, which means they need to equip their shops with the right technology that can do just that. This series is designed to fit easily on our customers’ production floors, within their information flows, and within their budgets.”
With a total paper capacity of up to 8,250 sheets and four paper trays available as standard, users can maintain long stretches of uptime even when switching among several media types. This feature combines with the series’ tight registration, saddle-stitching, embedded Paper Library, and folding capabilities to make Ricoh Pro C5200s devices ideal for booklet production that doesn’t slow down for covers or inserts. Optional Cover Interposers and Booklet Finisher options are also available. Ricoh’s optional Smart Operation Panel facilitates the flow of information between the Ricoh Pro C5200s series, third-party software and other Ricoh devices. This Workstyle Innovation Technology (WIT) includes robust user authentication, eco-friendly features and information management options in a cost-effective, small-footprint package, said Ricoh. The Smart Operation Panel also aids workflow automation, including moving the most complex jobs to other devices. A variety of scan-to options, including Scan-to-URL, Scan-to-Directory, Scan-to-USB and Scan-to-SD “make sharing information fast and simple.”
