The difference starts with advanced Ricoh-developed ink

The RICOH Pro L4130/L4160 Wide Format Latex Printers utilize aqueous resin, eco-friendly latex inks made from latex polymer and pigment particles. They provide faster drying times than solvents, superior scratch resistance and the ability to print on affordable uncoated media. Plus, drying requires only a 140°F (60°C) cold cure, easily handling a range of heat-sensitive media for immediate use after printing.

8-ink cartridge design

 

Configure the system during installation to best meet the color and workflow demands of your business. Choose from three different color printing processes:

 
 

4-Color Process Printing

CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black): When in 4-color mode, two ink cartridges per color can be installed. When one ink supply is depleted, the Auto Refill System automatically supplies the second cartridge.
 
 
4 color process
6 color process
 

6-Color Process Printing

CMYK + Orange, Green: Adding orange and green inks expands the color gamut, enabling the accurate reproduction of approximately 93% of the PANTONE® Formula Guide/Solid Coated.
 
 
 

6-Color Process Printing + White

CMYK + Orange, Green & White: Orange, green and white inks are added to the standard 4-color (CMYK) to maximize contrast and deliver superior color imaging. White can also be used as a base layer to add vibrancy for images that pop.

Virtually no drying time

Set and maintain optimal temperatures during the entire print production process to drastically reduce drying time. The pre-heating process prepares the media prior to printing, preventing rapid temperature changes. The print-heater maximizes image quality, and the post-heater and drying-heater dry the ink after printing to ensure optimal quality, reduce blisters and expedite post-processing such as laminating and additional finishing.

Better for you, better for the environment

Latex inks have very low levels of VOCs, unlike solvent inks. Reusable ink cartridge design lessens waste and reduces ink costs over time. The units wake-up every 30 minutes to run printhead cleaning and cycle white ink through the circulation line, preventing settling or separating, and reducing waste.
