Ricoh Presenting New Short-Run Inkjet Printing Solutions In Lucerne
Hilton McCall, Ricoh SA.

The Ricoh Pro VC70000e’s software advances include production automation tools as well as business intelligence capabilities via the Ricoh Pro Scanner and Ricoh Supervisor™. Ricoh’s Automation Suite’s Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning benefits simplify operation and provide greater feedback for more effective decision making, while Ricoh’s proprietary undercoating technology ensures high quality results and broadens the range of applications that are suitable for inkjet by further improving overall print quality with sharper detail and more vibrant colours.

Show attendees at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2023 will get to experience the Ricoh Pro™ VC70000e continuous feed inkjet press for the first time, as it makes its public debut at the event. The Ricoh Pro™ V20100 mono continuous feed inkjet production press will also be on display, along with Ricoh’s forthcoming Pro Z75 B2 sheetfed inkjet press (as part of a virtual showcase), and the economical Ricoh Pro™ C9200 digital press.

‘We are proud to showcase the significant upgrades to hardware, software and workflow we’ve made to Ricoh’s award-winning continuous feed portfolio,’ said Hilton McCall, Head: CIP, at Ricoh South Africa. ‘They simplify production, support productivity, enhance quality and accelerate the migration of production from analogue to digital platforms.’

‘At a time when global shortages are impacting substrate choice, creating a standardised print surface with undercoating helps customers achieve outstanding results on an even wider range of media,’ said McCall. ‘Moreover, the Pro VC70000e is field upgradeable and interchangeable with existing Pro™ VC70000 models.’

Flexible and responsive mono continuous feed inkjet production will be demonstrated by the compact Ricoh Pro™ V20100. It enables commercial printers and book printers to profitably produce applications including pharmaceutical leaflets, transactional print, books, and direct mail.

A virtual showcase will present the transformational possibilities delivered by Ricoh’s forthcoming Pro Z75 B2 sheetfed inkjet press, and samples will be available to view. The future-defining technology incorporates Ricoh’s newest printheads and inks to deliver the advantages of sheetfed with the low running costs, high productivity, image quality, and flexibility of inkjet. It supports hyper relevant short runs and the acceleration of the transition from offset to digital production.

The Ricoh Pro™ C9200 digital press will deliver colour sheetfed productivity alongside impressive operational costs, including first class energy consumption levels. It can flexibly produce customised applications on a wide choice of substrates.

‘Applications ranging from books, magazines, and direct mail to B2 posters, gift cards and packaging, will highlight the print quality, production versatility and commercial potential these Ricoh systems deliver,’ McCall added.

‘We’ll also be showcasing some supporting software and business development services, including Ricoh ProcessDirector for efficient and streamlined continuous feed and sheetfed production, and Ricoh’s EDGE business development consultancy, which provides printers with essential tools and training to develop effective business and marketing plans, secure new business opportunities, and achieve a faster return on their investments.’ Hunkeler Innovationdays 2023 will take place at Messe Lucerne from February 27 – March 2, 2023.
