Ricoh has launched the Ricoh Pro 8200s series to help print service providers manage varied content in books and brochures, offer a greater number of production sizes and handle more media. These allow the high-speed black and white digital print platform to enhance and expand the print production capabilities possible.
A wider variety of substrates are now supported, and a more creative product mix is enabled by a high capacity interposer. It allows front and back covers or inserts, printed on offset or digital printers, to be added post-fusing, into books and manuals. This inline capability also streamlines production. Another service expanding capability is the long sheet (banner) printing of up to 700mm while an improved stacker allows heavier media use.
The Ricoh Pro 8200s series can be tailored to suit client needs. It offers users active registration to help ensure more precise, clean output. It can run at speeds of up to 136 ppm, maintain 1,200 x 4,800 dpi VCSEL quality on a wide variety of media, including coated media, up to 350 gsm. It supports NCR and pre-printed media.
The Ricoh Pro 8200s series will be commercially available in Europe from January 2017.
