When it comes to digital printing, Ricoh has got it covered whether it be in the cutsheet or continuous-feed inkjet areas.
Ricoh Australia senior product and marketing manager Henryk Kraszewski says the company’s extensive portfolio of mono and colour cutsheet presses and high-speed continuous-feed inkjet presses all utilise innovative Ricoh technology.
“A common thread across all of these presses is the breadth of substrates supported. Both the cutsheet and continuous-feed family of presses can run the most diverse array of stocks in their class in paper types, weights and sizes,” Kraszewski said.
The Pro VC70000 utilises Ricoh’s industrial printhead technology, extended gamut ink technology, patented advanced dryer technology and controller technology to ensure consistent, high-quality output on a wide range of media, including offset coated stocks (with no priming or post-treatment required).
Combined with the highest speed in its class, Kraszewski sees it providing a cost-effective solution to the high-volume production of near offset quality graphic communications.
Ricoh offers one mono cutsheet press family (the Pro 8300S series) and three colour cutsheet platforms (the Pro C5300S series, Pro C7200X series and the Pro C9200 series). All colour models are either completely new or refreshed this year.
He predicts that “post-COVID-19, print runs will continue to shrink. That provides significant opportunities for digital presses with their ability to deliver high-quality output on almost any substrate – but with the ability to do so economically on runs from one to thousands.”
