Ricoh Launches its First 62-PPM A4 Printer; New ‘Small Footprint’ MFPs; 42-PPM A4 MFP
Ricoh USA today launched its latest black-and-white copier/MFPs for small offices and enterprises, the small-footprint MP 501SPF and MP 601SPF MFPs, and SP 5300DN and SP 5310DN standalone printers. The firm bills the new models as “high-speed, high-volume, low-maintenance, low-cost devices.” Ricoh also launched the 42-ppm A4 MP 402SPF MFP (see below). All of the new models are available through Ricoh authorized dealers.
SP 5300DN and SP 5310DN Printers
The SP 5300DN and SP 5310DN standalone printers are said to be especially compact, “fitting easily under or on top of desks and counters, such as at point-of-sale locations or in hospitals.” The 52-ppm RICOH SP 5300DN and 62-ppm RICOH SP 5310DN print at 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution. Both printers feature a maximum paper capacity of 2,600 sheets. The SP 5310DN and RICOH MP 601SPF are Ricoh’s first A4 62-ppm devices.
The SP 5300DN feature:
- Prints up to 52 ppm.
- Paper capacity of up to 2,600 sheets.
- Mobile printing via RICOH Smart Device Connector, RICOH App for Google Cloud Print, and Airprint.
The SP 5310DN features:
- Prints up to 62 ppm
- Paper capacity of up to 2,600 pages.
- Print on thicker stocks up to 59 lb. bond/120 lb. index.
- Mobile printing via RICOH Smart Device Connector, RICOH App for Google Cloud Print, Airprint.
The firm also says that the new monochrome MFPs and printers are designed to operate “nearly maintenance-free throughout the life of the device.”
MP 501SPF and MP 601SPF MFPs
The MP 501SPF and RICOH MP 601SPF MFPs extend Ricoh’s lineup of “small-but-powerful trend while operating as the collaboration hub of an organization.” The MFPs are said to be ready-made to use workflow-enhancing and usage-tracking applications. A legal-size platen allows for simple copying, scanning, and faxing of legal-size documents, even when stapled. The MFPs also feature a 75-sheet-capacity Automatic Reversing Document Feeder (ARDF).
According to Ricoh, the MFPs feature an improved touchscreen user interface, in the form of Ricoh’s next-generation Smart Operation Panel (below), which is said to simplify print and other processes. It says its Workstyle Innovation Technology platform enables print-driverless near-field communication (NFC) printing from NFC-enabled mobile devices; displays frequently used functions in the user interface; and allows pre-configured print settings to be created for specific documents.
“You see it in how office spaces are designed: Everyone is looking to get more done in less space,” commented John Brophy, vice president of product marketing for Ricoh USA, Inc. “With this line of devices, we’re looking to help customers looking to do the same. These are high-quality, high-volume, high-speed workhorses that take up very little space. Not too long ago, the idea of a 62-ppm device that could fit under a counter and handle the high volumes generated by busy environments was inconceivable. Now, it’s under counters in pharmacies, higher education admissions offices and just about everywhere else.”
RICOH MP 402SPF
Ricoh USA also introduced the black-and-white 42-ppm MP 402SPF MFP that’s equipped with Ricoh’s 10.1”-wide Super VGA Smart Operation Panel, an A4 unit that prints and scans on up to 8.5″ x 14″ media.
Print, copy, and fax are in black-and-white, but scan is in color, and the MFP features an Intel processor, standard 320-GB hard disk drive, and 2 GB of RAM.
The Smart Operation Panel enables users to utilize familiar tablet-like operation gestures such as swiping, pinching, and flicking. It also offers one-click shortcuts for frequently used applications and pre-configured settings to help get jobs done faster. The RICOH Smart Device Connector application initiates printing, scanning, copying, and faxing to and from smart devices without requiring a network connection.
The new MP 402SPF MFP also enables users to scan double-sided documents in one pass at up to 80 images per minute (ipm) via its Single-Pass Document Feeder (SPDF), or via shortcuts like ID Card Copy. There’s also a legal-size platen.
The standard hard drive enables users to secure stored documents, as well as leverage the security and cost savings of Locked Print, which helps prevent unclaimed prints from sitting unsecured in the output tray. An NFC card reader is also available for user authentication.
Specifications and features include:
- 1,200 x 1,200 dpi print resolution.
- Bypass tray accepts custom paper sizes of 2.37″ x 5″ up to 8.5″ x 35.43″.
The MFP is also said to feature advanced security, including:
- HDD Data Overwrite Security.
- User authentication (Windows/ LDAP/Kerberos/Basic/User Code/802.1.x Wired).
- Encryption (Address Book/Authentication Password/SSL Communication/S/MIME/IPsec/HDD/SMTP over SSL/TLS/SSH/Wireless LAN (WEP/WPA/11i).
- Network Protocol On/Off.
- IP Filtering.
- Copy Data Security Unit Option.
