Ricoh USA, Inc. announced that Idealliance has named the RICOH Pro VC70000 and its RICOH TotalFlow Print Server R600a digital front end the first continuous-feed inkjet recipient of its Digital Press System Certification.
“The team at Ricoh makes it a priority to learn about our customers’ needs, and then develops the technologies that help us deliver for them. This has been true time and time again,” said Tom Boyle, vice president of Sales and Marketing, Heeter. “Heeter is committed to providing the best quality and services for our customers. Ricoh is equally invested in our customers’ satisfaction, so I am not surprised they’re the first to achieve this certification for continuous feed inkjet. Like our team, they are continuously innovating.”
The RICOH Pro VC40000 now supports monochrome MICR dye and pigment engines.
Similarly, the RICOH Pro VC60000 and VC70000 are introducing simplex-only options to create capacity for boutique applications, such as solicitation mail with color on one side and monochrome on the other. These devices are also debuting a “keep warm” feature that reduces start/stop time and concurrent execution capabilities, which gives operators access to more of the platform’s features during printing.
Additionally, the RICOH Pro Scanner Option is introducing improved capabilities, including artificial intelligence-powered checks for ink density across the web and automated printhead cleaning.
“This certification serves as an excellent proof point for benefits we’ve been touting to our customers since the RICOH Pro VC70000 first hit the market,” said Mike Herold, director, Global Marketing, Ricoh. “The Idealliance Digital Press Certification is a testament to the hard work of our product design teams as they repeatedly rise to the occasion to deliver what customers ask for, today and tomorrow, at a consistently high level.”
