Series Upgrade Features Enhanced Speed, Productivity and Finishing

West Caldwell, NJ, July 21, 2009 — Ricoh Americas Corporation, the leading provider in digital office equipment, today launched the Ricoh Pro 907EX/Pro 1107EX and Pro 1357EX Digital Imaging Systems. These systems feature enhancements to the current Ricoh Pro 906EX/Pro 1106EX and Pro 1356EX series, which launched in May 2008, including advanced performance and improved finishing features. An extension of Ricoh’s commitment to production printing, the series is designed to better meet the present needs of the demanding marketplace.

Built upon proven technology, the series exhibits high productivity, versatile finishing, and increased durability. The Ricoh Pro 907EX/Pro 1107EX/Pro 1357EX leads the market in print speed with 135 pages-per-minute (ppm), and offers faster performance due to its enhanced memory architecture, which includes a standard 512 MB RAM (upgradeable to 1.5 GB) and a 320 GM Hard Disk Drive. The series also provides its users expanded in-house capabilities, therefore limiting the need for outsourcing. By handling a wider variety of media sizes and stocks, as well as high-volume runs of large, multi-page documents the need to pause and re-load trays is greatly minimized.

Flexible finishing options give customers more variety of professionally-finished documents, without losing valuable production time. The Ricoh Pro 907EX/Pro 1107EX/Pro 1357EX can create perfect-bound books up to 400 pages (duplex) using its in-line Perfect Binder, and Ricoh’s Ring Binder Unit can produce ready-to-distribute ring-bound booklets that are seamlessly punched and bound completely on-line. These features significantly reduce labor costs when printing bound books, passing on additional savings to customers.

Customers can expect reliable, un-interrupted operation in both the long-term, as well as during peak production. The Ricoh Pro 907EX/Pro 1107EX/Pro 1357EX identifies and corrects multiple-sheet feeding, with an innovative ultrasonic sensor that improves detection accuracy. The sensor ensures maximum uptime for high-volume copying, printing and scanning, and uses precise airflow to ensure fast, error-free media handling. The series is also equipped with enhanced Trained Customer Replaceable Units (TCRU’s) which minimize downtime and don’t require a service call.

“The production printing market is constantly changing and Ricoh strives to offer products and solutions that meet these demands and the needs of our customers,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of Marketing, PPBG, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “By bringing this upgraded series to market, we’re offering our customers the precision, speed and flexibility they need to succeed in an ever-increasing competitive landscape.”

The Ricoh Pro 907EX/Pro 1107EX/Pro 1357EX systems are designed for simple operation by eliminating errors and performing administrative tasks remotely. Users can preview and approve thumbnails of scanned documents before final output or distribution via Scan-to-Email or Scan-to-Folder. With Web Image Monitor, a utility that allows users to check supply levels, change print queues and adjust settings, administrative tasks can be performed remotely, allowing for increased multitasking and decreased time spent at the system. The systems also feature the Super VGA Color Touch Panel Display, which provides convenient viewing of copy/scan options.

Note from Art:

I'm a Ricoh kinda guy, so hence the post on the latest and greatest high volume systems from Ricoh! I'm really looking forward to placing some of these units in P4P enviroments. The perfect Binder and the Ring Binder additions will be well accepted in the P4P market!
