Ricoh is introducing a pair of new right-sized sheet-fed presses, the RICOH Pro C5300s/C5310s, which combine high-quality colour, powerful performance, and a range of finishing options. These features are designed to deliver a robust solution at a more accessible price point, helping more businesses deliver professional-looking presentations, vibrant proofs-of-concept and attractive finished booklets.
“The RICOH Pro C5300s and C5310s can help in-plants bring more work in-house and marketing agencies exceed quality expectations,” the company said in a statement. “Commercial printers can also leverage it as a proofing device to produce high-quality customer proofs without having to interrupt long-run jobs on higher-production presses.”
The models are said to be good options for franchise printers looking to deliver more standout applications with specialty stocks that command premium prices. “Precise registration and colour matching pair with support for a wide range of media – including specialty stocks, synthetics, envelopes and oversized sheet options – to empower design creativity while driving accuracy and reliability,” Ricoh said. “Finishing options take this versatility to the next level, helping users create professionally finished saddle-stitch booklets, course guides, marketing materials and presentations. Meanwhile, intuitive controls make this power even more accessible.”
“Technological innovation has pushed the sheet-fed market forward, first with incredible strides in accuracy, media versatility and image quality, and second, making those advancements accessible to more printers,” said Heather Poulin, vice president, marketing, Commercial Printing Business Group, Ricoh USA Inc. “The RICOH Pro C5300s and C5310s’ affordability and size bring some of the most eye-catching, productivity-enhancing features to an even broader customer base. These presses deliver best-in-class media support for specialty stocks, oversized sheets and heavier weights, a game changer for in-plants and marketing agencies looking to make print pop without breaking the bank.”
The RICOH Pro C5300s and C5310s provide high productivity with full-colour, 2400 by 4800 dpi at up to 80 pages per minute (ppm). Built-in sensors aid front-to-back registration, which has received vast compliments from users for duplexing, especially business cards. Also useful for premium applications, these presses maintain their impressive image quality on media up to 360 gsm.
The RICOH Pro C5300s/C5310s’ 10-inch Smart Operation Panel makes managing the many substrate options available significantly easier with an intuitive paper library that contains 1,000 preset or custom profiles. Additionally, trained customer replaceable units (TCRUs) empower users to execute routine maintenance on their schedule, helping to drive uptime, further contributing to the presses’ reliability.
Both the RICOH Pro C5300s and C5310s are ENERGY STAR certified and carry an EPEAT Gold rating.
