RISO Introduces High-Speed Inkjet Accessories for Envelope and MICR Check PrintingSeptember 8, 2009
DANVERS, MA—09/08/2009—RISO, Inc., a leader in digital printing technology, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive partnership with Kirk-Rudy to market a high-speed, full-color inline MICR check printing solution called MICR-Mate®. MICR-Mate works specifically with RISO’s inkjet printers to produce up to 120 checks per minute. Checks are printed in monochrome or color and with MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) images. The MICR-Mate inkjet solution simplifies short-run check printing with unprecedented cost efficiency and full ANSI compliance. The optional Verification Module enables users to identify and verify continuity with smaller and more manageable parts, ensuring data integrity.
The second product that RISO is launching with Kirk-Rudy is a new high-speed inline envelope feeder called the KR324-R. This is a heavy-duty, high-capacity, continuous feeding shuttle system designed specifically to feed various sizes of envelopes and card stocks into the RISO high-speed color printer. The KR324-R runs continuously due to its “top-load, bottom-feed” architecture, so it is capable of printing more than 100,000 envelopes without interruption. SRP is $6,324.
MICR-Mate will be marketed exclusively in North America by RISO, Inc. and serviced by the Kirk-Rudy dealer network. MICR-Mate’s SRP is $41,250, plus $23,625 for the full-page verification system option. The RISO HC5500 is priced at $39,995. All these products will be demonstrated at PRINT 09, to be held in Chicago on September 11-16. The Kirk-Rudy products will be connected inline to the RISO HC5500 inkjet printer at RISO’s booth #974.
"There really is no other comparable high-speed cut-sheet MICR inkjet solution currently available and these products, combined with RISO’s color inkjet printers, fills an under-served need in the production market,” said David Murphy, Vice President of Marketing for RISO, Inc.
RISO’s newly launched ComColor® high-speed inkjet printers will be demonstrated at RISO’s booth #1263, along with the MZ990 150-ppm two-color digital duplicator. ComColor inkjet printers produce up to 150 color pages per minute (ppm) for about half of the operating costs of comparable toner-based production printers. Capable of producing up to 500,000 pages per month, applications include variable data envelopes, transactional documents, direct mail, and more.

In addition to these new product introductions at PRINT 09, RISO will host a cocktail reception at its Technology Center on Saturday, September 12th from 5:00 –7:00pm. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, this facility allows conference attendees to experience the company’s ComColor printers, along with a full suite of digital printing solutions, in an actual office environment.
