The Ricoh Pro VC40000 continuous feed inkjet platform.

Ricoh USA (booth 2022), and its recently formed Commercial & Industrial Printing Business Group, will be showcasing its full line of digital presses that “empower printers to achieve graphic greatness through colour, speed, volume, and consulting expertise.” On display for the first time in the U.S. is the 2017 Must See ’Em Award winning Ricoh Pro VC40000 continuous feed inkjet platform – designed to help users boost print quality and speed with transactional and direct-mail applications. Its high-performance digital front end (DFE) empowers digital workplaces with advanced workflow management that makes producing complex, data-driven direct mail and transactional output simple, said the OEM. Ricoh’s variable drop-size technology, with three sizes of drop for any pixel, gives 600 dpi applications a perceived resolution of 1,200 dpi.

Also showcased will be the Ricoh Pro C7110X five-colour digital press, the flagship Ricoh Pro C9110 for higher-volume printing, the Pro 8220 high-speed black and white digital press, the Ricoh Pro VC60000 continuous feed colour inkjet printer (that helps customers migrate print volume from offset to digital), the Pro L4160 (for big, bold, eye-catching applications such as signs, banners, vehicle wraps and indoor and outdoor displays), and the EFI Pro 16h LED wide-format hybrid printer (that serves both flatbed and roll-fed workflows delivering high-definition imaging for a broad range of wide-format applications). Ricoh Consulting Services, a dedicated services team that works closely with customers to tailor solutions to their needs, will also be in booth 2022. Team members will be available to answer any questions.
