Ricoh has launched the Ricoh Pro C5200s series of digital colour cut sheet presses enabling print service providers to broaden their services thanks to its flexible production capabilities.

The Ricoh Pro C5200s and Ricoh Pro C5210s support print-for-pay businesses, commercial printers, in-house print centres and corporate    and marketing environments in their quest to deliver highly responsive creative print.

The new series runs at print speeds of 65 and 80 pages per minute at 1,200 x 4,800 dpi across a wide range of media up to 360 gsm. The embedded paper library has an intuitive User Interface to support operators. Image quality is comparable to the output from Ricoh’s higher classes of digital colour cut sheet presses. Tight registration, edge-to-edge printing and long sheet printing up to 1260 mm will also help meet market demands. 

Booklet production is a key application for many PSP so the Pro C5200s has optional Cover Interposer and Booklet Finisher with saddle stitching and folding capabilities. 

“With the Ricoh Pro C5200s series we can help production printing operations expand their capabilities,” says Benoit Chatelard, Vice President, Production Printing, Ricoh Europe. “Extensive media choice and a range of finishing options previously available only with Ricoh’s higher specified presses enable them to offer fast turnaround short run creative services including envelopes and longer sheets for trifold and quadfold options. 

“When clients ask for a service we want PSPs to be able to say yes, confident in our highly-developed production portfolio.”

The Ricoh Pro C5200s series has a paper capacity of up to 8,250 sheets, supporting long periods of production, even when switching media. For a high performance production printer, the series requires relatively little space for an easy fit in different environments.
