The Ricoh (Booth 2600) Pro L4000 Printer series features Ricoh’s next generation of piezo-electric print heads with durable latex ink in five colors; CMYK and white. The aqueous nature of the latex ink means that is has a low environmental impact, which makes it ideal for the environmentally conscious buyer of printed materials. At the same time, the introduction of white ink allows print buyers to optimize color vividness across multiple substrates. This allows print service providers to produce highly vibrant and crisp whites without the usual time-consuming steps such as foils or cut-outs, speeding up fulfillment. The Ricoh Pro L4000 series also features multiple jetting print head technology to produce three different drop sizes at once and as small as four picolitres in size. The result is smooth, lifelike images. The printer’s extensive media support enables clients to order print on a wide range of substrates such as PVC, tarpaulin, synthetic paper, coated-paper, non-coated paper, textiles and more. This new series of printers from Ricoh represents the future of large format inkjet technology for the graphic arts market. It will be available in North America and Europe in the first quarter of 2013.
