Ricoh Europe, London, 16 May 2019 – Ricoh’s groundbreaking Ricoh Pro™ VC70000 colour continuous feed inkjet platform, designed to enable commercial printers to migrate more work from their offset platforms and digital print businesses to produce more offset-like applications, has achieved prestigious industry recognition.

The Ricoh Pro VC70000 has won an EDP Award, at FESPA, Munich, in the Commercial Printing Systems Web Fed Printer category.

The Ricoh Pro VC70000 incorporates a new Ricoh designed and patented dryer and Ricoh’s new extended gamut inks. The inks enable users to print directly onto a variety of offset papers without the need for any pre-treatment, creating the opportunity for progressive Print Service Providers to combine offset-like results with digital production flexibility for commercial print, direct mail and book applications.

The platform prints at speeds up to 150 metres per minute, producing nearly 12,000 duplex B2 sheets per hour. It incorporates Ricoh’s latest state of the art piezo drop on demand print heads producing 1200x1200 dpi resolution on uncoated, offset coated, inkjet treated or inkjet coated papers.

Eef de Ridder, Vice President, Commercial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe, comments: “We believe the platform’s patented drying technology, Ricoh-developed inks, high speed production, extensive media flexibility and outstanding quality create a winning combination. We are delighted that the EDP agrees and has chosen to recognise its unrivalled performance.”

The EDP Awards honour the best developments in print production tools, software developments, substrates, inks, materials and finishing systems. The association focuses on ways to assist technology-appliers in their task to find the right solution for their applications.
