WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Feb. 24 -- Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today introduced the Ricoh(R) Aficio CL4000DN Color Laser Printer, a compact printing system that utilizes state-of-the art technology to provide superior print speed, exceptional image quality and simple operation, maintenance and connectivity.

The CL4000DN is a desktop printer that can fit virtually anywhere in an office, and is designed to accommodate the demanding needs of large workgroups by satisfying their high print volume requirements.

"The CL4000DN delivers the total package to the end user by producing documents with superior print quality at a low total cost of ownership, with the option of expanding to meet future multifunction needs."

While speed and performance are key business concerns, saving money is just as critical. The CL4000DN provides a streamlined, cost-effective solution as all consumables can be easily accessed and replaced by the end user. Productivity can suffer if the user has to frequently replace consumables such as paper and toner.

To meet users' growing business needs, the CL4000DN can be enhanced with the optional Ricoh Aficio IS200e Image Scanner upgrade that provides full color and black and white scanning at 16 and 33 ppm, respectively. The IS200e enables digital document distribution and sharing with the Scan-to-Email and Scan-to-Folder functions as well as convenient color copying with the Scan-to-Print option. High quality document resolution can be achieved with the IS200e Image Scanner's 600 x 600 dpi optical resolution capability.
