Ricoh is supporting progressive printing businesses to extend their applications capability by enhancing the paper feed and output options for its Pro C9200 and Pro C7200 Series. From November 2019, the heavy and mid–production digital colour sheetfed presses will feature eight new paper feed and paper output options, along with new EFI print servers.
By expanding the range of paper feed and paper output options, users of the Pro C9200 and Pro C7200 Series of presses can benefit from enhanced productivity. New options support coated paper, heavyweight media covers and the insertion of slip sheets.
New binding capabilities, including saddle stitching for long sheet media and SquareFold* finishing, will enable users to find it easier to deliver applications that are in growing demand, including A4 landscape booklets and manuals, saddle stitched catalogues, manuals and reports with covers using heavyweight and coated paper, and high quality finished saddle stitch catalogues and manuals using SquareFold finishing. Furthermore, enterprise users will be able to keep more outsourced documents in-house.
The new EFI Fiery servers for the Ricoh Pro C9200 Series and Pro C7200 Series offer enhanced performance and new features designed to help clients produce more superlative output and be more productive. Colour servers E-86 for the Pro C9200 Series and E-86A for the Pro C7200 Series harness the latest Fiery NX Premium hardware platform to deliver a 50% performance improvement compared to the E-85 and E-85A.
For Pro C7200x five colour models, the E-86A and E-46A print servers include a new, exclusive, fifth colour calibration feature to ensure clients receive the best quality output on high value, fifth colour applications while helping to further reduce manual adjustments prior to printing.
“Competition is intensifying in the world of print production. To differentiate and open up pathways to new business, forward thinking Print Service Providers are equipping themselves to satisfy the growing demand for high added value printed materials,” said Eef de Ridder, Vice President, Commercial and Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe PLC. “By expanding the range of finishing options available on our high end sheetfed presses, we are responding to these needs and also supporting our clients’ drive for increased productivity.”
