Ricoh Malaysia's 5th production print station - the Ricoh Pro C7100x series - will transform the graphic arts market, said the digital imaging and printing solutions company.

Speaking during the launch in Kuala Lumpur, Ricoh Malaysia's managing director Peter Wee said the new solution, designed for both commercial printers and print rooms, is the industry's first production printer with an interchangeable fifth colour station: clear gloss or white toner - an ability unsurpassed at this price point, breaching the fundamental limitations of the four colour spectrum - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (CMYK).

"With the rise in small to medium businesses, we are confident that incorporating the Ricoh Pro C7100x digital press series and the Ricoh Pro C9100 series into the workflow will enhance client value as it allows the expansion of our customers' application portfolio as well as deliver diverse and unique outputs to their end customers," said Wee.

He said some of the Ricoh Pro C7100x series features include printing at speeds of up to 90 colour pages per minute (ppm), and achieving an optimal image quality of up to 1200 x 4800 dpi with Ricoh's enhanced Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology.

"It delivers a premium finish, supports an extensive range of media such as synthetics, textures and more, as well as enables various applications," said Wee, adding that customers can complete more jobs for less cost as it comes inbuilt with features to increase current digital printing capacity.

At the same event. Ricoh Malaysia also introduced its new generation of high volume digital presses - the Ricoh Pro C9100 and Ricoh Pro C9110.

"By adding Ricoh Pro C7100x series digital presses to the business workflow, clients can boost their returns on investment, expand their digital print services, and assure customers of exceptional image quality with fast turnaround times," he said.

"With speeds of up to 130 ppm, a maximum monthly volume of up to 1 million A4 sheets and a duty cycle of 1.75 million A4 sheets, the Ricoh Pro C9100 series meets customers' needs for excellent turnaround with high durability and uncompromised quality outputs," said Wee.

"This solution is especially suited for larger commercial printers seeking to start-up or expand their hybrid digital and offset workflow, with easy integration into existing operations, allowing customers to address new market segments by lowering the barrier of entry to high quality and high speeds," he said.

Both the Ricoh Pro C7100x series and Ricoh Pro C9100 series are now available in Malaysia.
