Ricoh Production Printers

Ricoh offers production printers that meet critical commercial business needs, including wide-format printing and cut-sheet printing. Production printing includes digital presses, commercial printers, and industrial printing. These heavy-duty commercial printers provide more reliable operation, higher quality print resolution, and blazing-fast output unmatched by standard office equipment. These devices produce advertising banners, flyers, catalogs, statements, reports, and other documents for corporations, non-profits, and other businesses requiring their own in-house printing.

 

What Are Ricoh Digital Printers for Production Printing?

Production printers utilize digital information to provide high-volume printing. Typically, production printing offers key benefits to commercial printing applications not commonly found in ordinary printing appliances. These benefits include exceptional print quality, increased capacity, and higher print speeds–all at a lower cost than outsourcing. Ricoh industrial printers can print on a variety of thin and thick card stock media, gloss, or coated paper, and offer specialty finishes. Digital production printers offer the advantage of customizing media to small groups and individuals by integrating a prospect or client database with the marketing content to create personalized messages. These commercial-grade printers offer the reliability, speed, and quality that enterprises require to secure greater cost efficiencies.

 

Who Needs a Ricoh Industrial Printer?

The need for businesses or enterprises to increase their print capacity at a lower cost is the biggest factor driving the decision to purchase a production printer. These heavy-duty Ricoh business printers achieve high-volume printing while giving the business more control. Companies that have the greatest need for a production printer include businesses with graphic art needs, large-format printing, high-speed production, high-quality print, and large-volume printing. Often these companies need printing on a variety of media, including signage, banners, heavy card stock, envelopes, thin paper, and coated stock.

Production Printing Samples

Ricoh production print offers considerable flexibility in the media printed upon and the type of documents. These documents can include reports, proposals, government legislation, invitations, and any other need for high-volume/high-quality documents. Achieve print resolutions of 2400×4800 dpi for exceptional rendering, color contrasts, and shadows for reproducing fine art. Coupled with high resolutions is the addition of a 5th or 6th color to meet corporate branding requirements, metallic colors, or achieve color-critical print requirements. Blending neon colors offers marketing departments the ability to produce the most vibrant oranges, yellows, and deep purples. Using invisible red offers businesses entry-level security applications. Below are some of the common business needs for publishing documents.

Choosing the Best Commercial Printer

Ricoh Digital Press Options

Not all production printers can print the items listed above. Some items require a wide-format printer while others are more efficiently printed by cut-sheet printers. Ricoh offers both types of these industrial printers with selectable options to meet individual business needs. Many of Ricoh’s sheet-fed printers offer multifunction print, copy, and document scanning capabilities. Some of these cut-sheet devices mimic wide format printers with the ability to print on media approaching 50 inches. Below is a product quadrant to help guide businesses in selecting the best printer for their specific needs.

As shown in the continuum above, the wider the printing material and the use of color in printed products, the longer it takes to print. Each of the Ricoh Wide Format Printers utilizes a roll-fed system.

This device also offers 5- and 6-color configurations.2 & 3 The Ricoh Pro C7200 and C9200 series printers provide wide format printing up to 49.6 inches.
