Austrian print service provider Dataform Media, part of Dataform, has chosen the Pro VC60000 that features new Ricoh ink technology designed to print directly on common wood-free offset papers, matte-coated and coated printing papers. It aims to use it to print educational books among other applications.
This marks Europe’s first order of a Ricoh Pro VC60000 continuous feed press with extended gamut ink. The flexible and economical press delivers high colour stability and an improved colour gamut with more vivid colours and a richer black. This combination increases the different types of applications that can be supported. It also has a faster printing speed up to 150m/min, enabling higher production volumes (including offset to digital page migration) and decreased time to market for promotions.
Stefan Achter, managing director of Dataform Media commented, ‘We offer optimal products with all-round optimal service. Our investment in the Ricoh Pro VC60000 extended gamut press will support this. We look forward to it helping us further enhance how we support our clients with exciting new capabilities including individualisation and runs of one.’
‘We are delighted that Dataform Media has identified the powerful impact our newly developed inks have on the smooth and fast production of high quality digital print,’ said Eef de Ridder, vice president, commercial printing group, Ricoh Europe. ‘As well as enhancing its capabilities it can also seek new business opportunities confident in its ability to deliver consistently reliable fast turnaround results.’
