Ricoh empowers printers to broaden revenue streams with new latex devices
The need for faster short run production, broader job capabilities and enhanced productivity will be met by Ricoh’s two new next generation Pro L5130/L5160 latex roll to roll printers. These will be made available throughout Europe in early 2019.
The newest additions to its fast growing sign and display print portfolio print at speeds of up to 44 square metres per hour in outdoor standard mode and 25 square metres per hour in indoor standard mode. The series produces applications up to 1200 x 1200 dpi.
The Pro L5130/L5160 series’ speed combine reliability and media versatility to make it an excellent choice for today’s printers. Additional features include automated maintenance, a durable design, Ricoh’s Greenguard certified latex inks and industrial grade Ricoh printheads. Its curing technology ensures jobs produced are output ready for finishing as soon as they are printed, while a three way intelligent heater helps prevent melting or warping of thinner substrates.
With CMYK and CMYK plus white options available, high ink opacity and adhesion enable the production of crisp, clear prints for a variety of applications on substrates that range from wall coverings to window graphics to backlit day/night signage. Substrate flexibility is built in with support for two and three inch roll cores up to 200 g/m2 and media up to 64 inches wide.
‘These agile and versatile solutions are suited to a broad range of end use applications,’ said Graham Kennedy, head of Commercial Inkjet Business, Commercial and Industrial Printing, Ricoh Europe. ‘The Pro L5130/L5160 Series combine Ricoh inks, Ricoh printheads and Ricoh design, to empower users to deliver the kinds of applications their clients are looking for – quickly, easily and to a very high quality.’
