Ricoh Brings Tablet-Like Control Panel to New A4 Copier/MFPs


Ricoh USA today launched two desktop copier/MFPs that use color LED-based imaging, a toner-based technology, and a new desktop color laser printer, all of which are available through Ricoh-authorized dealers.

The two new 30-ppm A4 color MFPs, the RICOH SP C360SFNw and RICOH SP C361SFNw, feature Ricoh’s tablet-like Smart Operation Panel control panel, and provide standard copy, scan, print, and fax, along with support for mobile printing. The new entry-level color laser printer, the RICOH SP C261DNw, is rated at up to 21 ppm, supports mobile printing, and is for small businesses and workgroups.

The RICOH SP C360SFNw and C361SFNw MFPs are said to bring Ricoh’s Smart Operation Panel control panel to new markets. The 7″ Smart Operation Panel uses swipe, pinch and flick operation that is familiar to tablet and smartphone users. The panel’s settings and menu items can be rearranged and customized.

The new MFPs also feature a dedicated ID card input slot that scans both sides of an ID card at once.

The RICOH SP C361SFNw adds support for Ricoh’s optional Integrated Cloud Environment, which connects the MFP directly to popular cloud-based  document-sharing services. Customers can also install additional applications and widgets directly at the control panel via the RICOH Application Site. Both MFPs are equipped with enhanced security features, including locked print, which helps ensure proprietary information is protected by requiring that users enter their passwords at the MFP’s control panel before the MFP releases print jobs for printing.

Designed to support up to 7,500-pages-per-month, both MFPs feature 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution, as well as a 1.2 GHz CPU and 2 GB of RAM, Single Pass Document Feeder (SPDF) for scan speeds up to 60 images per minute (ipm) in black-and-white and 40 ipm in color, and an optional 250- or 500-sheet paper tray.
