Overview

Make money. That's the point.

When a printer is down or can't produce certain types of jobs, you're not making money. With the RICOH Pro C901 Graphic Arts+ printing system or the RICOH Pro C901s Graphic Arts+ scanning-copying-printing system, you can count on superior print uptime, vibrant print quality and consistent throughput. And, if you want bells and whistles, how does more than 20 inline finishing options and accessories grab you?

 

Eliminate service calls

What's better than a same-day service call? No service call at all. When you participate in our Trained Customer Replaceable Units (TCRU) program, you can keep spare parts on hand and install them as needed. Voila! You're back in business.

 

Run at top speed, even with heavy paper

Do you dread jobs that require heavy stock because you know how much they slow down your productivity?  Do these jobs force you to rework schedules? Our digital printers maintain their top speed of 90 ppm running any media, simplex or duplex, up to 300 gsm. You won't find a comparably priced system that can do this. And, the toner stays put on thick stocks.

 

See it to believe it

Wow your customers with near-offset print quality and true 1,200x1,200 dpi resolution. They probably won't care about the techie bits, but if you need talking points, start with these: unique toner formula that enables crisp, sharp images and fills; oil-less fusing; automatic calibration; and among the tightest sheet-to-sheet registration on the market.

 

Heat up your workflow

Use the latest EFI Fiery® or Creo controllers with our printers and turn your shop into a RIP-roaring speed machine. Get easy-to-use tools and utilities for job management, color management and complex document assembly. Zip through variable-data projects, personalized print on-demand jobs, marketing campaigns and custom print orders.

 

Know who's got your back

Our nationwide team of customer support specialists take care of preventive maintenance and repairs…7x24x365, if that's what you need. But business success requires far more than boxes, so we also do the heavy lifting. Like standardizing color output across digital and offset devices or re-engineering processes—with more G7-certified solution engineers in the U.S. than all of our competitors combined.

 

Features

New! Support for media up to 350 gsm

Dazzle your customers. With more paper choices than ever before, you can open up new creative possibilities. And the printer's Paper Library makes selecting paper as easy as touching the screen. When you use an EFI controller, the Paper Library integrates with the Fiery Paper Catalog, which provides additional media management options.

 

Built-in reliability

Lower your costs, increase your print uptime. With the RICOH Pro C901 and RICOH Pro 901s, we've set a new standard for dependability.

 

Here's how:

  • We put a steel frame into these machines, so they have the strength to take on practically any job. 350,000 impressions a month? No problem.
  • We developed air-assisted technology that feeds paper accurately. Because downtime is money.
  • And just in case something does go wrong, we put an elevated call light on the machine that’s visible anywhere. Your operators can take immediate action to get things moving again.
 

Quality you'll be proud of

Earn raves and repeat business with the vibrant near-offset quality that you'll get with Ricoh's PxP™ chemical toners and oil-less fusing. Small, uniform toner particles deliver sharp images, superior fills and smoother gradations, especially with matte finishes.

 

But our definition of print quality includes a lot more:

  • Manage color precisely, including calibration, matching and proofing. The standard Graphic Arts Package Premium Edition and other professional-grade tools make it easy. You can specify up to 250 spot colors per page; identify ICC profiles; and choose from a number of color simulation methods for exact color reproduction.
  • Use Adobe® PDF Print Engine (APPE) to generate error-free PDFs from any file. And you can eliminate the problem of missing graphics caused when files include tables, multiple layers or text builds.
  • Want consistency, job after job? You've got it. There are too many capabilities to list, but our engineers like us to mention mechanical paper registration, special fusing techniques and automatic calibration adjustments.
  • Like the look of full bleeds? Go for it on media sizes up to 13” x 19.2.”
 

Do-it-all print control

Opt for EFI Fiery controllers, and you'll make short work of large jobs, in part because you can simultaneously RIP one file while processing another.

 

And there's more:

  • Streamline print workflows with Fiery System 9 Release 2, EFI Command Workstation 5, HotFolders 3.0, Rush Printing, Virtual Printers, plus Fiery JDF support.
  • Simplify the assembly of complex documents with Fiery utilities such as SeeQuence Impose, Compose and Booklet Maker. Speed up the production of paginated documents and define gang-up styles and delivery options.
  • Control variable data (VDP) workflows with support for EFI Fiery FreeForm and PPML. Save time and money by keeping personalized marketing campaigns in-house.
  • Go paperless when you use the Fiery E-41 print controller. Tap into a suite of embedded scanning and document distribution functions.
 

Relentless productivity

Decrease the number of times you stop and start jobs and fiddle with the printer. Our many time-saving features always get a thumbs up from operators:

 
  • Change high-capacity toner bottles in seconds and reload and/or link media sources while the system is running. Each toner bottle yields up to 63,000 pages at a realistic 8.75 percent coverage factor.
  • Load paper and forget about it. Seven media pick points and a maximum of 11,000 sheets provide generous system capacity.
  • Automate binding, punching and stacking for up to 13,000 pages. You can configure each printer with inline finishing options.
  • Stuck with hardcopy originals? No problem, thanks to image capture, digital copying, print on-demand and electronic document distribution functions.
  • Want different operational choices? Look into the Creo C-81 Color Controller.
