The Ricoh Pro VC70000 has achieved Fogra certification.

Fogra is the leading research centre for the printing industry. Fogra VPS stringent testing assesses if systems that produce a hard copy validation print, directly from digital data, conform to the ISO 12647-8 standard. It considers a broad range of criteria including proofing, substrate colour and gloss, colour accuracy, light fastness, and compliance with the PDF/X standard.

Fogra approved the Ricoh Pro VC70000 for conforming to the ISO 12647-8 standard in two different printing conditions: 

  • Fogra59 (updated Exchange Colour Space for large colour gamut printers).
  • Fogra51 (for ISO 12647-2:2013 printing on Premium Coated paper).

The recognition for the Ricoh Pro VC70000 follows Fogra certifications for the Ricoh Pro™ C9200, Ricoh Pro™ C7200 and Ricoh Pro™ C5300 colour sheetfed presses.

Ricoh’s Customer Experience Centre, in Telford, UK, received FograCert ProcessStandard Digital (PSD) PrintCheck Digital certifications with the Ricoh Pro VC70000. The 12-month certification certifies Ricoh’s colour accuracy capability and print run consistency according to Fogra PSD specifications – ISO/TS 15311-2.
