Ricoh introduces new enhancements to powerful ProTM VC60000 production print platform

In its relentless march towards innovation, Ricoh brings industry leading features to market to help grow printers’ competitive edge

MALVERN, PA, March 1, 2016 Ricoh today announced a new set of capabilities for the RICOH Pro VC60000 next generation continuous feed inkjet platform. These new features will empower customers to print more productively, save time and money, and expand their portfolio of offerings. 

Specifically, the new enhancements include:
  • Increased speed: The RICOH Pro VC60000 can now achieve production speeds of 492 feet per minute, a 25 per cent increase in maximum speed, while producing exceptional print quality. This is an unprecedented combination of production capacity and image integrity, a combination that the inkjet market has been demanding and can finally capitalize upon.
  • Multiple Print Modes/CMY printhead parking: For customers who want to run a variety of applications including full color or black and white, they can selectively engage the printhead modules on the RICOH Pro VC60000. Printhead arrays that are not required for a specific application are disengaged by the printer. This provides customers with cost savings and flexibility when printing in black and white.
  • Extensions to Color Control:  The RICOH Pro VC60000 already produces incredibly rich, bold, and accurate color, and new enhancements will take that even further. Customers will now be able to add custom control bars, perform spot color editing, and even dynamic color substitutions, providing customers with incredible flexibility when generating full color applications.
  • Productivity and Application Enhancements:  Customers will now have more choices as to how applications are processed, stored, and reproduced with new RIP & Print options. Further, the RICOH Pro VC60000’s DFE now calculates and compensates in real time for any changes in paper characteristics that might impact image placement and quality. Customers can also utilize a supported printable sheet size of 20 x 54 inches (maximum page length of 1371mm) – enabling them to expand their applications portfolio and new market opportunities.

These new features will be available in spring 2016.

“As our track record for the past nine years in production print has proven, we will not stop expanding and pushing the capabilities of our platforms,” said John Fulena, Vice President, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “We know our customers and their clients are always looking for new ways to innovate and impress in order to meet and exceed market requirements.
