RISO (Burlington, MA), a subsidiary of RISO Kagaku Corporation, Japan’s leading manufacturer and distributor of high-speed inkjet printers and digital duplicators, has announced the launch of its new Raster Image Processor (RIP), – the ComColor Express RS1100C. The OEM’s latest advance in RIP software was designed specifically for its ComColor FW Series of printers to support functions essential for transactional printing. Designed to expand the production capabilities of the ComColor FW Series of inkjet printers, the ComColor Express RS1100C is a powerful RIP software that can support the advanced postscript functionality needed for transactional printing. Functions such as dynamic tray calls, subset finishing, mixed paper types, slip-sheet sorting, form overlay, and colour profile registration can streamline workflows and increase overall productivity.

“Previously, an optional PS-Kit software was the only productivity-boosting software available for the FW Series,” said Andre D’Urbano, Director of Dealer Sales at RISO. “Now, with the ComColor Express RS1100C, users have the option to enhance the ComColor FW Series to serve as a more capable production device.”

The ComColor FW Series was initially launched in June of 2016 and positioned to serve the requirements of the “Business Inkjet” market segment. However, demand for the device has expanded into several other key markets, including that of transactional printing. The FW Series – the FW5230, FW5231, and FW5000 – are compact, energy-efficient inkjet printers that produce full colour, variable-data prints at speeds of up to 120 impressions per minute.
