ATLANTA - (SGIA EXPO 15, Booth #1027) - Ricoh Americas Corporation today announced its roster of innovations on display at SGIA EXPO, November 4-6, including its portfolio of hardware, software and services aimed at helping sign shops get their jobs out fast and with impact. Whether it is a point-of-purchase display, indoor/outdoor advertising or a digital banner, Ricoh's heritage in imaging combined with its proven offerings help empower customers to improve quality and efficiencies for better business results, all at an affordable price point.

Ricoh's booth will showcase technologies that address the many challenges sign shops and commercial printers face as they work to produce great signage that can stand out from the competition. With vibrant eye-popping visuals and hands-on solution demos, attendees will get to experience firsthand the powerful capabilities Ricoh's solutions provide for expanding business, increasing competitive advantage and driving new revenues.

Innovations showcased at the booth (#1027) include:

    --  RICOH Pro C7110X - a high-speed production cutsheet digital printer with

        a 5(th) color station for white or clear toner. The added color

        capability enables shops to expand their application portfolio and

        deliver unique output, including oversize media up to 27.5 inches, and

        near offset image quality to their end customers.

    --  Ricoh Pro L4160 - a latex wide-format color printer capable of producing

        superior print quality and color matching for brilliant signs, banners,

        wall coverings, indoor and outdoor advertising, point-of-sale displays

        and more. Using the powerful Ricoh Software RIP, designed specifically

        to simplify printing graphics-rich output, with the RICOH Pro L4160

        users can deliver high-quality output of up to 63" wide and as long as

        the roll being printed on. Leveraging its eco-friendly, aqueous latex

        ink and outstanding seven-color printing, users can print on clear,

        plastic, vinyl, textile and backlit substrates, offering a much wider

        color gamut to customers.

    --  Mimaki JFX200-2513 - an entry-level inkjet flatbed wide-format printer

        powered by Ricoh's piezo print heads that can print on virtually any

        substrate (even wood, stone and tile) up to two inches thick and up to

        4x8 feet. By using Ricoh piezo printheads with three drop sizes, the

        JFX200-2513 helps ensure smooth natural color gradations and beautiful

        pale colors. Meanwhile, the Mimaki Advanced Pass System 2 applies ink in

        gradations during several passes using a mask pattern in combination

        with UV light that helps minimize the effect of banding.

    --  RICOH TotalFlow Prep - a workflow automation software for printers

        featuring a new and easy-to-use interface and preview capabilities for

        reduced waste and an improved user experience. Additional enhancements

        include imposition features with templates, one-stop tab management to

        track tabs from multiple sources throughout the print process,

        ticket-based templates and User Code support to help facilitate pattern

        recognition, workflow improvements and chargeback programs.

    --  RICOH TotalFlow BatchBuilder - simplifies and automates the batching and

        scheduling of short-run digital work for centralized job control. The

        vendor-neutral offering empowers users seeking better ways to meet

        production demands from high volumes of short-run and on demand jobs,

        while minimizing labor costs, increasing efficiency and throughput, and

        more effectively managing jobs.

    --  Ricoh's Color Management Services - help ensure customers' color

        delivery is precise and consistent, every time, across the customer's

        entire production fleet. Consistent color helps customers stay

        productive and profitable, and confidently use their fleet at maximum

        capacity. From color matching to calibration and standardization to G7

        Master Printer Qualification Services, Ricoh's G7® Expert certified

        engineers can ensure no matter what the device or what the project

        consistent color  is produced on every job.

At SGIA Expo, Ricoh will also demonstrate new solutions and services from MarcomCentral, Avanti and strategic partners. These offerings address challenges customers face in the graphics arts space and help them expand production capabilities, improve collaboration and enhance information mobility to help grow their business.
