New Ricoh MFPs for Healthcare with Locked Paper Tray, Wristband-Printing, More

The RICOH MP 501SPFTL/SP

Ricoh USA today announced new black-and-white “healthcare-optimized” copier/MFPs and printers that it says are designed to address the “security, space and budgeting needs” of acute, ambulatory, and extended-healthcare facilities. The RICOH MP 501SPFTL and 4510SFTE MFPs and RICOH SP 4510DNTE/SP 5300DNTL printers are, for instance, equipped with a specially designed locked paper tray designed to protect pre-printed prescription paper. The RICOH MP 501SPFTL and RICOH SP 5300DNTL are also equipped with Teflon-enhanced print trays to help handle the specialized media healthcare providers use, such as wristbands and labels.

The new models print on up to 8.5″ x 14″ media, and the MFPs scan up to 8.5″ x 14″ documents, and are available through Ricoh dealers.

Ricoh says that “extra-secure firmware” also helps prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to regulated media, and an optional card user-authentication package allows only those permitted to access specific functions on the device. A private print function is also available with an optional hard drive.

Teflon-Enhanced Paper Tray

As noted, the RICOH MP 501SPFTL MFP and RICOH SP 5300DNTL printer feature a Teflon-enhanced paper tray to allow wristband and label printing, media that Ricoh has been historically difficult to print on. Labels help keep important information and samples organized and identifiable for nurses’ stations and phlebotomists, while wristbands are an integral part of the hospital-admissions process. The firm also notes that labels’ adhesive can accumulate on regular print trays, causing paper jamming and misfeeds. Teflon-coated trays are said to help prevent this accumulation, but they have historically only been available with specialized label printers. These new devices eliminate the need for – and cost of – those specialized label printers devices.

Said to be ideal for acute, ambulatory, and extended healthcare facilities, the new MFPs and printers may also be fitted with regular, non-locking paper trays for plain paper or pre-printed forms.
