At IPEX, which began today at the ExCel International Centre in London, UK, Ricoh is launching a new Direct to Garment printer and Neon Pink toner for its Pro C7110sx press. IPEX is the formal public launch event for these new product additions.
The Ri 6000 direct to garment printer, explains Ricoh, is ideally suited to commercial printers looking to expand their service with entry-level systems. Suited to garments like t-shirts, sweatshirts, socks and bags, the Ricoh Ri 6000 can print on cotton-polyester blends and ideally on 100 percent cotton fabrics. The Pro C7110sx will be displaying its fifth colour capability enhanced by the recent launch of the new neon pink colour option, which joins white or clear options.
In early October, Ricoh also unveiled a new wide-format flatbed printer called the Pro T7210. “The business model for décor printing is evolving with increased demand for shorter runs and faster delivery times for custom and small-batch wall coverings, flooring, furniture and tile,” said John Fulena, VP, Commercial & Industrial Printing Business Group, Ricoh USA. “The T7210 gives printers the ability to do all of that, and it makes doing it easy, and effective.”
The T7210 supports substrates up to 4.3 inches thick with a print size of 6.9 feet by 10.5 feet. It prints at speeds of 50 square metres per hour (538.2 feet), during standard operation. Additionally, a media gap adjustment sensor automatically measures substrate thickness and adjusts print heads accordingly.
