Ricoh has unveiled a first look at the RICOH Pro Z75, its B2 sheet-fed inkjet system.
“The Ricoh B2 inkjet press is phenomenal. It is going to be a game changer for the commercial print market,” said Bob Dahlke, Jr., principal, VISOgraphic, Inc. “Ricoh’s approach to bringing new innovation to market is to do it right. They don’t care about being first; they care about delivering what our businesses need. I’ve been through this process with them in the past, and I believe it has helped commercial printers more confidently and effectively migrate to digital.”
“The B2 format is fantastic for commercial printers who are looking to run more applications at a more competitive price point. It’s more cost-effective for business,” said Kirk Schlecker, president, Heeter.
The RICOH Pro Z75 will use Ricoh’s drying technology, auto-duplexing, paper transport and a new DFE controller architecture. Offset-quality images are achieved through Ricoh’s own printhead, aqueous ink and dynamic drop size technology.
“Today more than ever, commercial printers must be adaptable and view changing customer needs as opportunities, not challenges,” said Gavin Jordan-Smith, senior vice president, Commercial and Industrial Print, Ricoh Americas. “The power of digital has never been more front and center than it is now, and that’s due to the demand of hyper-relevancy from end customers. And in order for commercial printers to support those evolving needs for hyper-relevancy, they must be equipped with leading productivity, reliability and speeds. The RICOH Pro Z75 helps empower commercial printers with the ability to dynamically pivot to effectively and efficiently support customer needs.”
