Ricoh Americas Corporation has announced the first full-color digital imaging system in its wide-format multifunction product (MFP) portfolio. With copying, scanning and printing capabilities, the Ricoh MP CW2200SP streamlines low-volume, wide format workflows while offering impressive features that make this a standout device suitable for architectural, construction and engineering firms operating in CAD-centric environments.
Businesses with wide format demands traditionally rely on individual devices to print in black and white or color. The Ricoh MP CW2200SP solves the need for two wide format devices by bringing affordable, cost-effective color and black and white output into one footprint. By combining support from large 500 ft. plain paper rolls and printing onto 20 lb. bond paper, workflows are improved and costs per print are lower than traditional color inkjet products. With optional two-roll printing the system can change rolls automatically, helping to maximize printing productivity.
"Architects, engineers and construction contractors need their technical drawings and plans to be presented in print exactly how they were designed," said Tim Vellek, Vice President, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "The Ricoh MP CW2200SP is an outstanding wide format MFP for firms in need of high-quality color output, and it is ideal for those who also place an emphasis on saving space and reducing printing costs."
The Ricoh MP CW2200SP enables quick and easy sharing of high-quality color and black-and-white documents. Scan full-color originals and distribute them via Scan-to-Email/Folder/FTP/HDD or use the embedded Software Developer Kit (SDK) architecture to integrate GlobalScan NX for optimal electronic file management. Documents can be immediately accessed in the field via any Web browser with Scan-to-URL. Built-in USB and SD card slots offer mobile workers the convenience to save documents and generate prints directly at the device for on-the-go productivity.
The Ricoh MP CW2200SP is the only wide format device available that uses GELJET™ ink technology. First introduced on Ricoh's GELJET line of printers, this fast-drying, waterproof gel ink doesn't soak the page like traditional inkjet devices. Rather, its colorfast properties allow the ink to dry on contact, minimizing bleed to produce more durable documents that are required to stand the test of time, such as blueprints, schematics and design plans.
A host of advanced security features are available on the Ricoh MP CW2200SP to protect confidential and proprietary documents from getting into the wrong hands. User authentication restricts access to print jobs from unauthorized users with password or ID card verification. PDF encryption maintains the integrity of scanned PDFs during distribution with password protection and the DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) automatically destroys latent images and data on the HDD.
