Ricoh chose GRAPH EXPO 2010 to introduce its newest digital color production press, the Ricoh PRO C901/C901S Graphic Arts Edition, an advanced digital color production press designed specifically for professional production printing.
“With its remarkable image color and consistency, and the ability to handle a broad range of substrates, the RICOH Pro C901/C901s Graphic Arts Edition is the ideal production system for customers seeking professional results at an affordable price,” said Carl Joachim, Vice President of Marketing for Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “The Pro C901 is designed for the demanding requirements of today’s graphic arts professional, as more and more applications migrate from offset to digital.”
According to Joachim, this newest product in the Ricoh line-up will take color quality to a new level approaching offset, and handle a broader spectrum of media including stocks up to 300 gsm at rated speed. The 350,000 monthly duty cycle makes it suited for true production environments. It comes with controller options from EFI and Creo.
To address the evolving need for online, mobile, print, and social media solutions, Ricoh has partnered with Printable Technologies to bundle software, hosted services, and professional services which will be offered at substantial savings when purchased with the C901 Graphic Arts Edition.
