Ricoh Brings ‘Big-Business Power’ to Small Offices with New Desktop A4 Printer, MFPs
April 16, 2015 – Ricoh Americas reports that it’s releasing a new desktop A4 family, consisting of a printer and two MFPs, that it is says brings “big-business power and reliability” to small and home offices. While Ricoh is best-known as a provider of “big copy” machines, and not well-know in the small or home office segment, it indicated at a Ricoh dealer meeting last year that it would be introducing small and home-office printers and MFPs to help bolster its brand recognition.
The new monochrome RICOH SP 3600DN printer ($355 MSRP), RICOH SP 3600SF MFP ($540 MSRP), and RICOH SP 3610SF MFP ($605 MSRP) are rated at up to 32 ppm using Ricoh’s new LED-printing technology, which delivers up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution. As A4 models, they print on up to 8.5″x14″ media, while the MFP models also copy, scan, and fax on up to 8.5″x14″.
Mobile printing from smartphones and tablets is supported with the RICOH Smart Device Print&Scan app, while the SP 3600SF/SP 3610SF MFP’s feature scan to email, network folders, USB drives, and FTP sites. The new models are compact – as small as 15″ x 15″ x 10.5″ – for installation on desktops. All three models incorporate a standard Ethernet network interface, and wireless connectivity is available as an option.
All three units also handle paper stock up to 90 lb. index, and have paper capacities of up to 850 sheets. They also have separate toner and imaging drum, which reduces costs, since the imaging drum isn’t replaced when the toner cartridge is replaced. There’s also standard automatic duplex printing, and the units are certified EPEAT Silver and Energy Star-compliant.
The MFPs with copy, scan, and fax include more advanced features such as ID card copy, Super Group 3 fax, LAN fax, color scan, and the ability to create TIFF, JPG and PDF files from scanned files. The SP 3610SF includes single-pass two-sided scanning for faster document scanning.
