Get production that's quick, quiet and compact.

If speed is a priority in your workspace, the RICOH MP C6003 Color Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP) delivers the tools you need in a busy work environment. Expect crisp, full-color and black-and-white documents at up to 60 pages per minute (ppm). Keep projects moving with a standard 220-sheet single pass document feeder (SPDF) to scan both sides of a two-sided original in just one pass. Plus, the MP C6003 delivers a quiet design and compact footprint to fit seamlessly into smaller workspaces.

Take your productivity to the next level

Make sure nothing stands between you and your print tasks. The MP C6003's paper capacity is an impressive 4,700 sheets with optional source feeds. The standard paper tray accepts envelopes, and accommodates paper stocks up to 12" x 18", plus media weights up to 166 lb. Index. Enjoy a generous maximum monthly print volume of up to 50,000 pages. Also, you can rapidly identify and resolve occasional paper disruptions via synchronized animated guides or helpful LED lights.

Put color front and center

Let your presentations be seen as they were meant to be seen - as vibrant color reproductions at up to 1200 dpi. The optional Fiery® controller makes the MP C6003 an ideal choice for graphics-intensive environments. It provides compelling, professional-grade output on a wider range of paper stocks, and exceptional enhanced spot-color reproduction with RGB, CMYK and PANTONE® colors. Create, reprint or combine documents with ease with the Command WorkStation utility, which simplifies complex print tasks.

Work wherever, whenever

Don't leave your critical information stranded. Print via smartphones, tablets or laptops - without special drivers - for incredible mobile convenience. Access documents through our Integrated Cloud Environment, which transforms your MP C6003 into an information portal. Send scanned documents to multiple recipients with Scan-to-Email/Folder/URL/FTP. Plus, non-network users can also easily scan to/print from a USB drive or SD card.

Give your customers what they want

Make professional, custom output the norm. Create booklets or staple documents by adding a 1,000-sheet finisher or a 1,000-sheet booklet finisher. For extended print runs, add a 2,000-sheet booklet finisher with saddle stitch, or a 3,000-sheet finisher that also includes optional hole-punch, to save time and maximize productivity.

Operate with a smarter interface

Leverage your resources with greater ease. The Optional 10.1" Wide Super VGA Smart Operation Panel offers touch-screen functionality and allows users to quickly switch between tasks. Creating everyday shortcuts is simple, and customization makes it easy to provide a personalized experience for individuals or groups.

Embrace easy sustainability

Make environmental responsibility part of your daily routine. The MP C6003 is constructed of thinner resins and steel sheets made from 100% recycled steel scrap. It also features an EPEAT® Gold rating*, is ENERGY STAR® certified, and includes a host of energy-saving features for a low Typical Electricity Consumption value** as determined by ENERGY STAR program testing requirements. Plus, Ricoh's consumable and product recycling programs make it easy to recycle.
*EPEAT is a comprehensive environmental procurement program based on IEEE 1680 International Standards. The EPEAT rating is applicable only in the U.S.A. **Based on Energy Star Test Method for Determining Imaging Equipment Energy Use, effective January 1, 2014.

Step up your security

Help protect what's important. Impart user authentication to help prevent unwanted document access, and add watermarks to help thwart malicious duplication. Encrypted PDF transmission scrambles document data, while the DataOverwriteSecurity System automatically overwrites any files left on the hard drive. Plus, HDD encryption adds another layer of document security.

Manage more

Capitalize on smarter management features. Ricoh's optional @Remote internet-based tool lets you monitor device usage, automate meter reads, receive toner alerts, and handle service needs to shorten downtime. Need even more control? Other administrative tools let you limit output for specific users, plus manage status alerts, device feedback and software updates.

We have our MP C6003 copier networked so users can print to it. My manager was trying to print a 6-page, 11 megabyte PDF file and the copier wouldn't print it. The computer sent the print job and there were no errors on the copier. We were able to print the document three pages at a time. What is the maximum print job size for the MP C6003 copier?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2018

I would suggest working with our support team on the issues you are encountering. They would be best able to help you trouble shoot.

How to Get a Printer to Fill a Whole Page?(bordless)
A shopper on Feb 21, 2018

The nature of the technology used for printing by this model does not allow for filling a whole page so that there are no borders or margins (borderless printing). While there is an Edge to Edge Print selection within the print driver's settings, this setting only maximizes the print area by minimizing the blank space along the edges - it does not eliminate those blank spaces. Laser printers that finally fuse the images onto the paper require some amount of margin (or area without print) on the leading edge of the paper in order to feed that paper without jamming. The only option available to produce the desired result would be to print onto a larger sized paper then to cut away the undesired margins.
