RISO to Debut the ComColor GD Cut-sheet Inkjet Printer at Graph Expo 16
BURLINGTON, Mass. — September 15, 2016 — Premiering at this year’s Graph Expo will be the RISO ComColor GD series of professional inkjet: a high-speed, full-color printer that delivers prints at speeds up to 160ppm. The GD is the world’s fastest cut sheet inkjet printer (A4, single side short edge), using five colors for an exceptional gray scale print quality and lower printing costs.
The machine, scheduled for launch in early 2017, comes with an embedded GDI, or two optional RIP. The embedded optional true Adobe PostScript RIP supports Mac/Linux, PDF direct printing, and remote printing from most mobile devices. The optional production RIP, the ComColorExpress FS2000C, is equipped with a Fiery digital front end developed by EFI. This image processor maximizes the ComColor GD series to meet the demands of variable data printing operations that are vital for Direct Mail or Transaction printing, and delivers high-speed data processing to large-volume, complex document data. Newly formulated ink offers high density black and vibrant colors. The ComColor GD Series handles a broad range of paper/card stock and envelopes from 3x5” to 11x17” with weights ranging from 46gsm to 210gsm (12-lb bond to 56-lb bond).
Long recognized as the world leader in digital duplicators and an innovator of inkjet printing technology, RISO will also be showcasing a new line of Business Inkjet printers called the FW Series, and a freshly launched digital duplicator line called the RISO SF Series.
The ComColor FW series, launched in the North American market June 15 as a business inkjet printer, delivers high speed, full color variable data printing at 120 pages per minute as well as improved scanning, copying, and networking capabilities — all in a smaller footprint than previous models. The ComColor series is renowned for high productivity, energy efficiency and reliability.
The RISO SF series of digital duplicators, launched Sept. 1, incorporates several new improvements, delivering the crisper quality of a true 600x600 dpi, higher speeds than previous models — up to 150 sheets per minute — and an overall easier operation.
RISO will also be displaying two concept machines, the T1 and T2 concept machines which debuted at DRUPA in Germany earlier this year. The RISO T1 is a compact, full color printer which uses continuous roll-paper instead of cut sheet paper, enabling printers to use the post-processing devices that they already own while incorporating the cost-effectiveness of RISO printing. The RISO T2 system offers a significant improvement in efficiency for duplex printing, reaching speeds of 300 duplexed prints per minute.
