Walter Digital chooses Ricoh Pro VC60000 technology
Ricoh Europe, London, 24 January 2017 – Walter Digital has invested in a Ricoh Pro VC60000 digital inkjet press to increase efficiency and productivity.
The fourth generation family-run German digital and offset print services provider specialises in mailings, point-of-sale-material, marketing collateral and manuals. It is managed by brothers Axel and Felix Walter.
Axel says: “With the Ricoh Pro VC60000 our customers will benefit from a technology platform that combines the features of both digital and offset production. They are high print quality, broad media handling and output performance just like offset printing, combined with the versioning and flexibility of digital printing.”
Felix adds: “We are investing in a technology platform that will become a fully integrated part of our production workflow. It will enable us to further increase efficiency and productivity. As a solution provider for extensive and multifaceted jobs, including both data processing and logistics, this installation is a natural step in the expansion of our production printing capability.”
Walter Digital became part of the Heer Media Group in October 2016. Tino Heer, Managing Director of Heer Media Group, says: “The digitisation of communication and print production is a core element of the overall digital transformation of all social and industrial areas. Technological innovation is crucial to remaining competitive and further market growth.”

This success further consolidates our position as a leading technology provider in the commercial printing industry.”
