According to Ricoh, print companies have the potential to enhance revenue, reduce operational costs and empower business growth thanks to its new Pro C9200 Series of digital sheetfed colour presses.
Building on the highly successful Pro C9100 technology platform, the Pro C9200 Series offers increased image quality with outstanding registration. Its new Auto Colour Diagnosis technology assures colour consistency and stability by detecting and adjusting subtle tone fluctuations while printing.
Expanded media capability is delivered with enhanced long sheet capability of up to 1030 mm auto duplex 1260 mm simplex and increased media support up to 450 g/m2.
Productivity is increased with models printing at up to 115 pages per minute (A4) or 135 pages per minute (A4) while streamlined production is enabled with in line options offering the versatility to produce a wide variety of applications. A new, intuitive operator panel increases usability.
Continuous operation is enhanced with improved purge control. Maximum uptime is further assured by Operator Replaceable Units and replenishable toner on the fly.
A range of digital front end options are available with Fiery E-45 and E-85 from EFI and Ricoh’s high performance DFE TotalFlow Print Server R-62 which offers excellent integration with various pre-press workflow solutions including Prinergy from Kodak and Apogee from Agfa.
Available as an option is IPDS support for AFP datastream printing environments.
