Ricoh’s evolving portfolio supports profitable diversification at FESPA 2019
Ricoh’s evolving portfolio will show FESPA 2019 visitors how they can profitably diversify their service capabilities and explore new markets.
Among the systems designed to meet an increased need to deliver broader job capabilities, as well as faster short run production and elevated productivity, is the Ricoh Pro™ L5160 latex roll-to-roll large format printer. Available from April 2019 in Europe, it delivers increased productivity and performance compared to its predecessor, aligned with reduced maintenance requirements and outstanding quality.
For those intending to move into garment decoration, there is the easy to use Ri 100 Direct to Garment printer. For higher production demands, there will be the Ri 6000 Direct to Garment solution. Both enable print providers to deliver flexible, cost-effective digitally printed offerings including T-shirts, cloth bags, hoodies, sweatshirts and socks.
For creative and versatile print, the five colour Ricoh Pro™ C7200x colour sheet fed press will be running inspiring fifth colour applications on a range of media.
In the solutions hub the latest in intuitive software capabilities will demonstrate how consistently accurate and high quality production can be achieved from one single workflow platform. The ColorGATE production server will be present, following the December 2018 acquisition of the company.
Joining these will be a new large format flatbed system. There will also be some exciting DTG, ink and printhead technology news. Further information will be communicated soon.
The entire inkjet portfolio is underpinned by core Ricoh technologies in both printheads and inks. Ricoh’s team of experts will be on hand to assist the adoption of these technologies within the OEM community looking to take advantage of the latest innovations for a diverse range of applications in sectors including Sign & Display, textile and décor.
Graham Kennedy, Head of Commercial Ink Jet Business, Commercial and Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe, comments: “This is our fourth FESPA and each year our stand gets bigger and bigger to make room for our expanding portfolio. The latest additions have been developed to ensure the functionality, quality and capability to match clients’ developing needs. We are also excited to show how the latest technologies enhance and complement each other. In turn they allow our clients to investigate new markets and pursue new ventures, confident they can deliver and safe in the knowledge that Ricoh’s expertise is on hand if required.”
Throughout the show, visitors can meet with Ricoh specialists to discuss how they can broaden their production horizons and introduce new revenue earning opportunities.
