Ricoh USA expands its wide-format portfolio with the Ricoh Pro TF6251 UV LED flatbed and Ricoh Pro L5160e latex roll-fed wide-format printers. These solutions are designed to satisfy market demand for affordable output, enabling customers to “pursue ambitious growth plans fuelled by high profit potential, low operating costs and exceptional reliability.”

As with all devices in Ricoh’s wide-format portfolio, they can be strengthened by its new Wide Format Elite Access service, a brand-agnostic workflow support services and expert advice to help printers enhance profitability.

“Ricoh’s wide-format solutions are perfectly suited for today’s market demands. For example, now more than ever, healthcare and educational organizations need to graphically communicate distancing, queuing, navigation and congregation requirements to create a welcoming and safe environment,” said Heather Poulin, vice-president, CIP Marketing & Portfolio Management, Ricoh USA. “The intelligent design of our wide-format solutions gives customers optimum colour, quality and consistency for a wider range of applications, ultimately simplifying and streamlining their processes because they know they can rely on one partner to help them get the entire job done.”

The Ricoh Pro TF6251 can print on rigid substrates up to 4.3-in. thick. It can also print on odd-size and pre-cut materials for short-run packaging and promotional products. With two ink configurations and two ink sets to choose from, customers can tailor the system to fit their specific application and production needs. The new addition of the roll option attachment allows customers to increase versatility across both ridged and flexible media while maintaining consistent colour accuracy.

The Ricoh Pro L5160e is suitable for printing both indoor and outdoor applications from pop-up displays and window graphics to exhibition graphics and vehicle wraps. With this system, printers can utilize a variety of substrates, including pressure-sensitive and self-adhesive vinyl, banners, canvas, coated and uncoated paper, backlit/clear films, wallcoverings, labels/decals and textiles.
