Ricoh Europe 27 June 2013 – The Ricoh Pro C901 and Pro C901S Graphics Arts + digital presses were awarded the ‘Best Production Cut-sheet Printers – Light Production’ during the 7th European Digital Press Association (EDP) Awards held on 26 June at FESPA, London.
The prestigious EDP Awards recognise the most innovative printers, finishing products, software and consumables launched in the print industry during 2012/2013. The Technical Committee adheres to strict guidelines before making their recommendations to EDP members, who then give their final approval for the awards. Receiving an EDP Award is acknowledged across Europe as a mark of quality and a sign of true innovation.
Peter Williams, Executive Vice President, Head of Production Printing Business Group, Europe says, “At Ricoh, we are proud of the innovative features, high performance and durability of our production printing portfolio, so it is great news to be recognised as best-in-class by independent experts in the industry. When combined with Ricoh’s software, and production printing services, we look forward to continuing to provide award winning solutions that support print service providers, enhance the value they bring to their clients and grow into the future.”
The Ricoh Pro C901 and Pro C901S Graphic Arts + digital presses offer commercial and corporate printers enhanced productivity, flexibility, quality and profitability, with a 20% higher duty cycle than previous models at 700,000 impressions per month. Uptime is also enhanced with larger sized toner bottles that require fewer changes per shift. Substrates up to 350gsm are included as part of the standard settings on both models with the media library continually updated to reflect broader grade choices.
The Ricoh Pro C901 and Pro C901S Graphics Arts + digital presses include a HyperRIP that improves performance by processing multiple job pages simultaneously. These presses also feature Xobjects caching to enable PDF files that include Xobjects to print at speeds previously associated only with VDP jobs. They also offer inline job editing and Job Preset Quick Select. Job Preset Quick Select is a productivity technique that applies predefined settings used in virtual printers and hot folders to jobs in the job list.
The systems are also part of Ricoh’s green initiatives that promote sustainable solutions by recycling and reducing CO2 emissions through Ricoh’s Carbon Balanced Printing Programme.
