"Ricoh Australia has launched its heavy hitter, the Pro C900 and C900s production colour and B&W printer, at a function at Sydney’s Luna Park, and will take the launch to Melbourne and Perth in the next week as it flexes its digital muscles in the lead-up to PacPrint 09.
. . . the company is obviously very confident that this machine, alongside its recently-strengthened digital production team, can make significant inroads into the local markets. Ricoh predicts that the production printing market will grow to $A20 billion by 2013.
. . . Among its main features are a print speed of 90ppm in both colour and black-and-white for all stocks up to 300gsm (heavier stocks don't slow the machine's speed during production), paper capacity of up to 11,000 pages, the ability to replace toner while running the machine, an SRA3 large capacity tray with Air-Assist Paper Feed for feeding coated paper, and up to seven trays.
. . . Among the finishing features are fully automated ring binding, with a binding capacity up to 50 or 100 pages on A4 booklet sizes. The perfect binder option produces books with up to 200 sheets, cover page insertion as standard and paper support up to 300gsm. Three/one edge automatic trimming comes standard for book sizes of A4 and A5.
