RICOH INTRODUCES AFICIO® MP C6501SP/C7501SP COLOR DIGITAL IMAGING SYSTEM
Competitive Speeds Create a Cost-Effective Imaging Device
West Caldwell, NJ, March 8, 2010 - Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment, today announced the introduction of the new Aficio® MP C6501SP/C7501SP digital imaging system. Both color multifunction products (MFPs) replace the Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500. The new MP C6501SP/C7501SP system is engineered to minimize total cost of ownership with enhanced speed, productivity, paper handling and finishing, and energy saving features. The system provides an ideal solution for fast-paced offices and high-volume environments. The Aficio MP C6501SP/C7501SP system helps users stay productive by reducing turnaround time with fast output. The MP C6501SP boasts speeds of 60 pages-per-minute (ppm) color and 65 ppm black and white, while the MP C7501SP delivers 70 ppm color and 75 ppm black and white. Output is further accelerated by a 150-sheet automatic document feeder with one-pass color duplex scanning, allowing users to scan both sides of a document in a single pass, reducing scan time and wear and tear on sensitive originals. Personal productivity is also enhanced with Ricoh’s new widget-based technology, App2Me®. Scheduled to launch in the first quarter of this year, App2Me allows users to create customized workflows and utilize them at any Ricoh MFP enabled with the App2Me workflow management solution. As today’s businesses demand high-quality results, the Aficio MP C6501SP/C7501SP system offers a wide range of professional-grade paper finishing and handling features that allow users to experiment with new formats and improve uptime. Standard paper capacity is 3,400 sheets with a maximum capacity of 7,400 sheets. Also available are seven optional finishers specific to a variety of functions, such as six-position multi-fold, staple and hole punch, ring bind and booklet-making. Paper handling has been improved as the system accepts up to 140 lb. Index and 110 lb. Cover. To further enhance document processing and printing, the optional Fiery E-7200 will be available after launch allowing for easier Ricoh scanning and Fiery printing. “For many businesses, in-house printing needs are becoming more complex,” said Hede Nonaka, executive vice president, Marketing & Document Solutions and Services Division, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “With the Ricoh Aficio MP C6501SP/C7501SP digital imaging system, instead of outsourcing these jobs to a third-party printer, users can consolidate costs into one resourceful and reliable MFP that is capable of meeting their unique print and color-imaging demands.” While the Aficio MP C6501SP/C7501SP system delivers on quality and productivity, it also helps businesses cut down on energy and meet their overall sustainability goals. The MP C6501SP and MP C7501SP exhibit warm-up times of 70 and 60 seconds respectively, all while using 12 percent less energy than previous models. Additionally, the system is designed to use Ricoh’s revolutionary PxP toner. With its lower melting point, PxP toner requires less energy, but still delivers professional-level results. With the Aficio MP C6501SP/C7501SP system, confidentiality and security remain of the utmost importance. The system incorporates many of Ricoh’s standard safeguarding features, including the ability to limit system access to authorized users only and document encryption.
