Ricoh adds Pro VC70000 to inkjet portfolio
June 26, 2018 By PrintAction Staff
Ricoh has announced the newest addition to its inkjet portfolio, the Ricoh Pro VC70000, designed to accelerate the transfer of offset print volumes to digital. The new continuous feed platform targets commercial printers looking to produce high-end catalogues and magazines, traditionally expected from offset presses. Additionally, Ricoh-developed inks are described as enabling up to 40 percent savings in paper costs while also expanding media support to offset-coated papers, untreated papers and more.
The Pro VC70000 joins the Pro VC60000, Pro VC40000 and InfoPrint 5000 in Ricoh’s inkjet portfolio. It touts a wealth of features including a new engine platform designed to increase drying capacity. The platform prints at speeds up to 492 ft/min, producing nearly 130,000 A4/letter impressions per hour. It leverages advanced piezo drop-on-demand printheads at up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution on uncoated, offset-coated, inkjet treated or inkjet-coated papers. Ricoh anticipates the Pro VC70000 will be available winter 2018.
Initially available for the Pro VC70000, Ricoh says its new inkjet ink technology rivals the output of offset inks with its media versatility and compatibility with gloss-coated stocks, while enabling a wider colour gamut.
