RICOH INTRODUCES THE AFICIO MP C6000/C7500 DIGITAL IMAGING SYSTEM
West Caldwell, NJ, January 29, 2008 - Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment, today introduced the Aficio® MP C6000 and MP C7500, two new high performance, color multifunctional products (MFPs). Whether the task is printing, copying, scanning or faxing, these digital imaging systems deliver output speeds beyond any other in their class.
The new Aficio MP C6000/C7500 Series is not only an ideal solution for general office environments looking to cost effectively incorporate color into their documents, but is also well suited for CRDs and commercial print shops as well as graphic houses looking to augment their current printing services. Bringing the production of documents to the next level, the Aficio MP C6000/C7500 Series is a versatile system that offers an array of document management functions coupled with print speeds of 55 pages per minute (ppm) full-color/60 ppm black-and white and 70 ppm full-color/75ppm black-and-white, respectively. Both systems also provide standard duplexing at 100 percent of rated speed.
The Aficio MP C6000/C7500 Series delivers sharp, vivid, and consistent color printouts and stylish black-and-white documents at 600 dots per inch (dpi). Ricoh’s new toner technology, which has smaller, more uniform particles, produces sharp image definition and smooth transitions in gradients. To ensure consistent color throughout production, the Aficio MP C6000/C7500 Series has a sequence of internal calibrations running in the background to maintain toner consistency and registration.
“The Aficio MP C6000/C7500 Series is the next step in color document production to helping organizations achieve outstanding results,” said Ron Potesky, vice president, Corporate Product Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “These digital imaging systems give businesses the opportunity to invigorate their document world with color, while also realizing a more productive, cost-efficient means to manage their document workflow.”
Incorporating the needs of the individual user with that of the company, this series boasts both a user-friendly interface and advanced security technology features. Walking up to the device, users enter commands on a large, full-color, LCD touch-screen control panel.
Expediting wait time, the series offers warm-up times less than two minutes and allows users to reload paper while print jobs are being processed. Additionally, both MFPs have a maximum paper capacity of 7,400 sheets. Besides the ability to manage access to the devices through codes and user-authentication capabilities, the Aficio MP C6000/C7500 Series uses encryption to protect data and documents in the devices and sent over the network. The systems also support IP security protocols to encrypt every IP packet in the data stream for high-security applications.
The Ricoh Aficio MP C6000 standard model is available at the suggested retail price of $29,800, while the Aficio MP C7500 starts at $37,800. For more information on Ricoh’s full line of products, please visit www.ricoh-usa.com.
