Pitney Bowes Inc. and RISO, Inc. have announced an agreement in which Pitney Bowes will offer RISO's HC5500 color inkjet printer to customers in the US. Ideal for mid and high-volume printing environments, the HC5500 complements Pitney Bowes' portfolio of integrated printing and mailing solutions to help organizations manage the production and flow of documents and mail, and connect with customers.
The HC5500 works in conjunction with a broad array of Pitney Bowes products, including its mail management software and inserters, to form a complete "print-to-mail" solution in a cut-sheet environment.
Utilizing RISO's FORCEJET printing technology, the HC5500 is the world's fastest sheet-fed color inkjet printer, running at 120 pages per minute, or 85 #10 envelopes per minute. The HC5500 is ideal for anyone printing transactional or transpromotional documents such as invoices, notices and personalized newsletters.
The printer can handle duplex printing in normal mode up to 92 pages per minute. The low-cost, small-footprint printer has a robust paper handling system for volumes up to 500,000 pages per month. The no-heat system of the HC5500 also offers increased reliability and up-time for post insertion processes.
HC5500 systems are available with a stacking tray, offset stacker or full finisher and options including a scanner system and touch panel display. The standard IS700C ComColor Adobe PostScript 3TM RIP can be enhanced with an Advanced or Professional package to increase the color and variable data printing capabilities of the HC5500.
