Aficio™MP 301SP/MP 301SPF and MP C305SP/MP C305SPF – Ricoh Launches Four New High-performance, Compact A4 MFPs
Amstelveen, The Netherlands, May 2012 – Ricoh Europe (Netherlands) B.V. has launched the black-and-white Aficio™MP 301SP/MP 301SPF and their colour counterparts MP C305SP/MP C305SPF, offering advanced print, copy and scan functions from desktop-suitable devices. Designed to replace several single-function devices, these innovative multifunction products help to improve workflow, while their small footprints save valuable office space.
“All four of these MFPs feature a tiltable and customisable 4.3-inch colour touch panel which makes them extremely easy to operate. Businesses can customise the home screen by inserting a company logo and changing the icons to give their employees a more personal experience, while full front access eases operation and maintenance,” says Sylvester de Koning, Product Manager at Ricoh Europe.
The Aficio™MP 301SP, MP 301SPF, MP C305SP and MP C305SPF provide a continuous output speed of 30 colour or B/W pages per minute after a warm-up time of 30 seconds. Extra paper trays make frequent refills no longer necessary, and the colour devices (MP C305SP/MP C305SPF) are the first A4 desktop MFP models to support a 1-bin tray which fits inside the standard catch tray – used to separate important output like inbound fax communication from other printed documents. All four devices print on a wide range of formats (A4, A5, A6, B5, B6, Letter and Executive) on plain, special and recycled paper up to 157 g/m2 (up to 220 g/m² for the MP C305SP/MP C305SPF). Card stock, envelopes and transparencies can also be used.
Scanning capabilities include colour scanning, and scan to email, folder and USB. The reduce/enlarge scan function adapts the paper size, while the enhanced batch scan feature enables scanning of only the printed sides of one-sided and two-sided mixed originals.
Standard security features include locked print and hold print, both requiring user sign-in before prints will be released. An embedded watermark, LDAP authentication, and HDD overwrite and HDD encryption options support additional security needs. To reduce the number of unnecessary prints/copies, limits can be set on the amount of outputs for each individual user or group.
The MP 301SP/MP 301SPF and MP C305SP/MP C305SPF provide enhanced device management capabilities that save time, increase efficiency and reduce costs. The high-performance GWNX controller allows the configuration of device settings, and enables status monitoring and the creation of usage reports.
The Aficio™MP 301SP/MP 301SPF and MP C305SP/MP C305SPF have environmentally responsible and money-saving features such as sleep mode, duplex printing and paperless fax (MP 301SP/MP 301SPF). The MP C305SP/MP C305SPF incorporate Ricoh’s new Quick Start Up (QSU) fusing system which helps reduce the Typical Electricity Consumption and reduces both the recovery time from sleep mode and the initial warm-up time.
The Aficio™MP 301SP/MP 301SPF and MP C305SP/MP C305SPF are the latest additions to Ricoh’s advanced range of digital office equipment. Ricoh currently manufactures one of the most extensive line-ups of printers, copiers, faxes and multifunctional devices, as well as advanced software solutions.
