Ricoh Expands Production-Inkjet Printer Family, Adds New Inks

Ricoh USA yesterday announced the newest addition to its color-inkjet production-printer portfolio, the RICOH Pro VC70000, which it says was built to accelerate the transfer of offset print volumes to digital print systems. The RICOH Pro VC70000, which is compatible with coated and un-coated stocks, will be available later this year.

The firm says the new continuous-feed platform will enable commercial printers to produce quality applications, such as high-end catalogs and magazines, traditionally expected from offset presses. It also says that Ricoh-developed inks enable up to 40-percent savings in paper costs, while also expanding media support to offset-coated papers, untreated papers, and more.

The Pro VC70000 joins the RICOH Pro VC60000, RICOH Pro VC40000, and InfoPrint 5000 in Ricoh’s inkjet portfolio. It features a new engine platform that increases drying capacity. The platform prints at speeds of up to 492 feet per minute, producing nearly 130,000 A4/letter impressions per hour. It uses Ricoh’s piezo drop-on-demand ink-jet print heads, which produce up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution on un-coated, offset-coated, inkjet treated, or inkjet-coated papers.
