Strategic course-setting for digital printing solutions23 Dec 2018
Ricoh Europe, London, 17 May 2018 – Ricoh’s creative sheetfed series of digital colour presses achieved prestigious recognition at yesterday’s EDP Award Ceremony, FESPA, Berlin. Winning the highly-noted award were the Ricoh Pro C7200x series digital colour sheet fed presses. They were among the 29 products chosen from more than 120 entries in eight categories.
Eef De Ridder, Director Commercial Printing, Ricoh Europe, comments: “We developed this newest series of presses for our portfolio of solutions to address the day-to-day market demands and challenges our clients face. We are delighted that their quality, productivity and versatility have been acknowledged by the EDP.”
The Ricoh Pro C7200x Graphic Arts Edition was designed to produce highly responsive, high quality, creative print. The compact, space saving production systems are available in both 95 ppm and 85 ppm (prints per minute) speeds. They can print a very diverse range of media up to 360 GSM at rated speed. The presses support long sheet printing up to 1260 mm simplex. In addition, the fifth station allows for value added print applications with the use of new fifth colour options including neon pink and invisible red to complement white, clear and neon yellow. While the Pro C7200x is expected to be embraced by progressive print service providers, the CMYK-only PRO C7200 model is likely to be particularly popular among enterprise print rooms.
The EDP Association aims to assist the technology-appliers in their task to find the right solution for their applications. The awards honour the best developments in print production tools, software developments, substrates, inks, materials and finishing systems.
