BLI, the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware and software, chose the winning systems based on an in depth review of a comprehensive set of technical criteria.

The latest recognition comes after the Ricoh Pro™ C9110 Series won BLI’s 2016 Award as Outstanding Mid-to High-Volume Colour Production Device and the Ricoh Pro™ C7110X Series was awarded BLI’s 2016 PRO Award as Outstanding Light- to Mid-Volume Colour Production Device.

Eef De Ridder, Vice President Commercial Printing, Commercial and Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe, says: “The fact that the Ricoh Pro C9200 and Ricoh Pro C7200x followed in the footsteps of their predecessors in winning these awards demonstrates just how Ricoh’s technological developments continue to support PSPs and their evolution in the fast-changing print environment. The judges clearly agreed that the new capabilities and enhancements are valuable developments that elevate print production and performance.”

“The Ricoh Pro C9200 is an outstanding choice for the commercial print space, delivering high quality, consistent results throughout testing,” states George Mikolay, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of Copiers/Production. For the Ricoh Pro C7210 series he adds: “Chief among the system’s advantages is its fifth imaging station, which not only allows for printing white in one pass but also invisible red, in addition to clear, white, neon yellow, and neon pink.”

The new Pro C9200 Series increases revenue and reduces operational costs with its enhanced image quality and outstanding registration.  Its new Auto Colour Diagnosis technology also assures colour consistency and stability by detecting and adjusting subtle tone fluctuations while printing. 

The new Pro C7200x presents a cost effective route to differentiation for production printing. Enhancements compared to the Pro C7100x platform include improved colour stability thanks to auto calibration with inline sensors, and improved registration with an auto adjustment function. In addition, its fifth station offers wider scope for value added print applications with the new ability to print white plus CMYK in a single pass, enhancing impact, for example on coloured media.
