RICOH TO LAUNCH BLACK & WHITE HIGH VOLUME DEVICES AT DRUPA
New machines complemented by enhanced finishing options
Ricoh is set to launch three black & white devices targeted at the production print market under its new "Pro" branding at Drupa 2008.
The Pro 9006ex, Pro 1106ex and Pro 1356ex (offering speeds of 90, 110 and 135 ppm respectively) are the new generation of Ricoh's black & white high volume devices and are the first machines to be launched under the company's new "Pro" branding for the professional print sector. Their launch will be further complemented by two new in-line finishing systems to enhance Ricoh's range of light production finishing options.
"The "Pro" devices are being launched at Drupa to highlight Ricoh's commitment to the production print market," explains Karen Lawrence, professional print solutions marketing manager at Ricoh. "We have a global install base of more than 50,000 high volume black & white models, which has allowed us to develop a reputation for providing great functionality, reliability and versatility."
Ricoh's high-volume customers will now also be able to benefit from the Perfect Binder and the industry's first fully automated Ring Binder. Both new additions have been developed to dramatically reduce the workload required to produce documents with professional finishing options.
The launch means that Ricoh's customers are now able to select from a comprehensive range of online options, which already includes Saddlestitch for simple office documents and Plockmatic finishing for more advanced requirements such as trimming and square back binding.
