Ricoh USA, Inc. launched the RICOH Pro VC70000e press, boasting advanced hardware, software, and workflow enhancements including Ricoh’s proprietary undercoating technology, which allows printers to produce photo books, luxury catalogs, and more with the sharpness and precision required for such high-end applications, the company said. The platform supports a broad substrate range without sacrificing quality or performance thanks to Ricoh’s optional undercoating process.
The Pro VC70000e is field-upgradeable and interchangeable with existing VC70000 models. This lowers barriers and costs of entry for existing continuous feed customers who want to broaden their application set.
The Pro VC70000e is the latest generation of the Pro VC70000 portfolio featuring multiple print quality and productivity enhancements including business intelligence capabilities via RICOH Supervisor along with artificial intelligence and machine learning benefits.
“We are seeing a significant increase in the demand for the marketing and printing services our customers provide. The RICOH Pro VC70000e helps those customers uncover new routes to revenue and overcome challenges they are experiencing resulting from paper supply shortages and other economic hurdles,” said Mike Herold, Director, Global Marketing, Ricoh USA, Inc. “The original Pro VC70000’s patented dryer technology opened doors to new opportunities due to its inkjet quality, and this new model is the next phase of our ongoing evolution to deliver best-in-class inkjet innovations. We built a one-of-a-kind platform that opens doors to new business opportunities with high-end luxury applications that require next-level print quality.”
The Pro VC70000e is available now.
