Following the recent RISO (UK) introduction of its new two-colour MF9350 and the single-colour SF9390 duplicators, Riso (Burlington, MA) has announced the North American release its SF9490 Digital Duplicator, the OEM’s newest cut-sheet digital duplicator that produces high-volume documents quickly, easily and economically at “an unrivalled speed of up to 190 pages per minute” (11,400 impressions per hour, including 11×17” sheet size). It’s engineered for use in a wide range of printing environments – such as corporate, manufacturing and educational settings. Combining true 600-dpi x 600-dpi image quality with ultra-fast printing speeds, the SF9490 produces “sharp, clear images, even with fine lines and small characters.” A large, interactive touchscreen panel enables easy review and point-of-printing editing of documents.

Multiple image modes allow for “the best duplication of your original,” and the RISO iQuality System ensures optimum print quality and easy supply management. Swappable colour cylinders provide over 70 available colours to choose from. The SF9490 also accommodates a wide range of paper weights and types. RISO’s SF9490 is also Energy-Star compliant, using 95% less power than a toner-based system. The OEM added that digital duplicators are more efficient than toner-based systems for larger print runs – so the bigger the job, the lower the overall cost per print. The device utilizes a new, environmentally-friendly ink that dries instantly and is suitable for archive use.
