Ricoh Philippines continues to empower more local printing businesses in Visayas and Mindanao with its latest technologies showcased in Pack Print Plas Cebu 2017.

Among the products Ricoh Philippines showcased in the expo held at the Waterfront Cebu were its lineup of full production printers, multi-function printers, projectors and business conferencing systems, interactive digital whiteboards, and unified communication systems.

This year’s highlights in the expo were the Ricoh Pro C7100 and the multifunctional color digital Ricoh Pro C5100, which is designed specifically for high-quality yet low-cost output.

“Our participation in this year’s expo is one of our many valuable efforts to reach out to the growing VisMin printing market,” said Eric Sulit, Ricoh Philippines president and CEO. “The Visayas and Mindanao regions are very important to us, which primarily inspired all our efforts to strengthen our presence, and improve our services in these areas,” he added.

In 2016, Ricoh Philippines established a regional office in Cebu, which serves as the main hub of the company in the VisMin area. The addition of a regional office allows the company to be able to easily extend its capabilities to redefine the standards in print technology in the region.

Ricoh Pro C7100

The Ricoh Pro C7100 series makes it easier for commercial printers as well as small to medium sized graphic arts businesses to offer diverse and unique outputs to their customers. The series delivers print speeds up to 90ppm, supports media up to 360gsm, and offers optimum image quality up to 1200 x 4800dpi. A key feature of the Pro C7100 series is its fifth color station allowing clear gloss or white applications, offering significant additional revenue opportunities.

“As businesses seek continuous growth, profit, and valuable to clients, it is essential that they have the right tools in place to deliver innovative applications and introduce new services. The Ricoh Pro C7100 digital press will allow them to boost return on investment, and to introduce new digital print services,” Sulit explained.

Ricoh Pro C5100S

On the other hand, the Ricoh Pro C5100S digital color cut sheet production system is a light production model that is a versatile choice for printers. With output speeds at 65ppm, it is ideal for the production of marketing materials. It also features a new toner formulation and broad media handling. In addition, the small footprint makes it ideal where space is limited.

“With Ricoh’s newly developed toner formulation, it has increased its color gamut by 10 percent for the Pro C5100S. The toner has also been developed to fuse at a lower temperature, meeting Ricoh’s R&D focus to continually reduce the environmental impacts of its products wherever possible. This in turn also ensures a quicker warm up time for increased productivity,” Sulit added.
