• Ricoh expands production options with Pro 8200s

        • PRODUCTS NEWS:

          Ricoh has launched the Ricoh Pro 8200s series to help print service providers manage varied content in books and brochures, offer a greater number of production sizes and handle more media.

          These allow the high speed black and white digital print platform to enhance and expand the print production capabilities possible.

          A wider variety of substrates are now supported and a more creative product mix is enabled by the High Capacity Interposer. It allows front and back covers or inserts, printed on offset or digital printers, to be added post-fusing, into books and manuals. This inline capability also streamlines production.

          Another service expanding capability is the long sheet (banner) printing of up to 700mm while an improved stacker allows heavier media use.

          Benoit Chatelard, Vice President, Production Printing, Ricoh Europe said, “the 8200s series empowers printers to produce a wide variety of applications by eliminating manual steps. It supports a greater range of cost-effective services to help the delivery of a broader portfolio of print solutions. It ensures greater flexibility to meet demand for faster turnaround times and tighter deadlines.”

          The Ricoh Pro 8200s series can be tailored to suit client needs. It offers users active registration to help ensure more precise, clean output. It can run at speeds of up to 136 ppm, maintain 1,200 x 4,800 dpi VCSEL quality on a wide variety of media, including coated media, up to 350 gsm. It supports NCR and pre-printed media.

          Benoit added, “printing on thick and coated media for attractive inserts, running NCR sheets and producing banners helps printers differentiate and add value. While high quality results and flexible set-up support busy production environments. This is a device for the future of high speed production.”

          Its durable design and Ricoh's Trained Customer Replaceable Unit (TCRU) programme work together to help maximise uptime.

          The Ricoh Pro 8200s series will have its first European showing at Ricoh’s Open New Worlds events at its Customer Experience Centre in Telford, UK in November; and will be commercially available in Europe from January 2017.
