Ricoh USA’s latest additions to its Commercial & Industrial Printing Business Group portfolio are the Ricoh Pro C9200 and C9210 Graphic Arts Editions “that provide an affordable, predictable way for businesses to maximize revenue due to its uptime and reliability,” said the OEM. They allow users to expand into new markets with the ability to produce book jackets, six-page brochures and other unique applications that require media of up to 470 gsm – with speeds up to 135 pages per minute on stocks up to 49 inches long.
“When our customers speak, we listen. They challenged us to deliver a press that increases productivity and reliability. The Ricoh Pro C9200 series does just that at a price performance never before seen,” said John Fulena, Vice President of the Commercial & Industrial Printing Business Group at Ricoh USA. “We’re redefining the value printers should expect from their presses, even in the most demanding production environments. These are among the most productive sheetfed presses yet, and they’re a direct result of listening to our customers and making strategic investments to help them deliver exceptional customer experiences.”
The company added that printers looking to increase uptime, reliability and utilization should see immediate benefits from the series. As mentioned, the presses support up to 470 gsm and have the capacity to run “the longest paper lengths in the market today” – 49 inches simplex and 40 inches auto-duplex. This enables the production of more advanced applications and the ability to drive down the cost per printed piece. Additionally, the series supports a laser resolution of 2400 x 4800 dpi with a large colour gamut without sacrificing speed or versatility. Ricoh added that the series also produces consistent, professional output due to its inline sensors that automatically aid improved front-to-back registration and colour calibration, without requiring advanced operator skills. A larger 17-inch Smart Operation Panel brings new job-management and workflow-management options directly to the device on a single screen – including the ability to monitor and manage print jobs remotely through either an EFI Color Controller or the Ricoh TotalFlow Server.
