Two reasons customers love our ProC7100 production printer

A cool cucumber that prints the colour of money

By Jacques van Wyk, COO of Ricoh SA

Printers love our Pro C7100 series of production printer in South Africa for two main reasons: its colour capabilities and the temperature at which it fuses.

Money Matters

There are other machines from competitors that can produce the colour and equality of our press but not at the price. In fact, a competitor press comes in around three times the price of ours - which is a big difference particularly when you’re talking of a million rand plus. The ProC7100 is a really affordable solution for independent printers looking to boost their revenues.

Fifth Colour

Printers are telling us that the fifth colour station in our press that’s used for white and clear ink, at the price we’re asking, is a real boon to their businesses. Check out this short video to see what’s got them excited:

Fusing Temperature

Our press also fuses at a lower temperature than competitors, 175 to 200 degrees Celsius versus 300. The difference in temperature is also the difference between being able to run PVCs, laminate boards, with spot UV, plastic materials and more through the machine or not. A lower fusing temperature brings other benefits: you extend the life of moving parts and reduce toner clumping for concise and accurate output job after job.

Another Reason

Printers also tell us they like the Pro C7100’s vacuum-fed large capacity tray (LCT) that handles stocks up to 360gsm in simplex and duplex.

All of that at one-third the price of a competitor press that does the same. Not a difficult decision, is it?
