The Ricoh stand will also showcase the newest addition to its color wide-format inkjet range. The Ricoh Aficio CW 2200SP is designed to address the growing CAD market. The innovative printer features Ricoh’s Liquid Gel ink and is ideally suited to a variety of industries, including manufacturing, architecture, engineering, construction, regional planning, building and product design. It will also meet the needs of corporate print rooms and quick print operations. Liquid Gel ink provides high productivity and superb line accuracy.
The Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printing Programme will be featured in the Ricoh Environmental zone. It is a European initiative, with the vision to roll out globally in the future. This programme is specifically designed to help print service providers reduce the environmental impact of printing when using Ricoh production printing systems, while providing a carbon neutral service to their clients. It follows a three step process: analyze, optimize and neutralize.
The first step involves an in-depth analysis of printing activity. The second step involves optimization of the print environment. A carbon calculator available through Ricoh’s Business Driver Programme determines the carbon generated per print job. Optimal environmentally responsible ways to print are then identified and implemented. The final step involves neutralizing the remaining and unavoidable carbon emissions.
The InfoPrint 5000 VP full-color continuous form platform is the newest offering in the InfoPrint 5000 product family. Its high speeds of up to 722 feet/220 meters per minute are ideal for companies with extremely high volumes and tight print windows. The full color InfoPrint 5000 VP complements the other InfoPrint 5000 platforms and provides the same high return on investment, with a range of speeds, excellent print quality, a compact and simple design, high reliability and ease of operation.
Graham Moore, Director Business Development in Ricoh Europe, confirms: “Print service providers do not need to face the challenges of expanding into some of these new business areas alone - such as cross-media campaigns featuring personalized direct mail and PURLs, transpromo and precision marketing applications. Drupa 2012 is a unique opportunity to meet with Ricoh, and explore how our proven solutions, services and business development support can be combined effectively to help businesses transform and grow in print and beyond.”
