Printing United Update: Ricoh to showcase its latest technology and help Wounded Warriors

The Ricoh Pro TF6250 wide-format UV LED flatbed press.

Visitors to the Printing United tradeshow (October 23 – 25 in Dallas, Texas at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center) will discover how Ricoh (booth 7001) empowers printers to adapt and thrive – by making expanding wide-format offerings easier, pushing the boundaries of substrate versatility, creating “gorgeous and precise” colours, and helping to deliver faster turnaround times. All of these are top concerns for modern commercial printers and print buyers, who want eye-catching applications quickly. Booth visitors can experience the OEM’s compelling and award-winning technologies – including the newly available and highly productive Ricoh Pro TF6250 in action.

Just launched in the United States, first adopters are now driving greater profitability because this press can produce a wide range of products on rigid substrates up to 4.3” thick at up to 635 x 1,800 dpi. Precise registration lets users create multi-layered and textured prints, or use tiled printing for oversized images on multiple boards. Basically, this system delivers outstanding image quality, productivity, automated daily maintenance and simple, low-cost operation. Users can produce many more applications – from indoor and outdoor signage, backlit and POP displays, art reproductions and event graphics, to promotional items, murals, short-run specialty packaging and more. Also for every badge scanned during the show, Ricoh will make a charitable donation to the U.S. Wounded Warrior Project, which supports wounded military veterans and service members. There will also be special times when attendees can double their donation and be entered in a draw for a Wounded Warrior Gift Basket. Please visit for more details.
