Ricoh has provided a first look at its upcoming Pro Z75 B2 sheet-fed inkjet system. The press which the company says contains “future-defining technology” was built to help increase productivity, image quality and operating costs.

The Ricoh Pro Z75 was developed to help printers transition into digital printing. The printer helps printers expand their application range and meet the increasing demand for short runs. The Pro Z75 provides media flexibility, productivity and ease-of-use across offset coated, uncoated and inkjet treated stocks, with one of the lowest operational costs in its class.

“The B2 format is fantastic for commercial printers who are looking to run more applications at a more competitive price point. It’s more cost-effective for business,” said Kirk Schlecker, president, Heeter.

The Ricoh Pro Z75 will feature the company’s efficient drying technology, auto-duplexing, reliable paper transport and new DFE controller architecture to provide high productivity and anticipated market-leading speeds. A Ricoh printhead, aqueous ink and dynamic drop size technology can deliver offset-quality images.

“Today more than ever, commercial printers must be adaptable and view changing customer needs as opportunities, not challenges,” said Gavin Jordan-Smith, senior vice president, Commercial and Industrial Print, Ricoh Americas. “The power of digital has never been more front and center than it is now, and that’s due to the demand of hyper-relevancy from end customers. And in order for commercial printers to support those evolving needs for hyper-relevancy, they must be equipped with leading productivity, reliability and speeds. The Ricoh Pro Z75 helps empower commercial printers with the ability to dynamically pivot to effectively and efficiently support customer needs.”

Ricoh plans to unveil more details on the Pro Z75 press in early 2021, including launch timings.
