Give in-house production a boost

The motion sensor activates the control panel before you even arrive, so you can start producing color and black-and-white documents at up to 65 pages per minute (ppm) from the touchscreen. Scan originals and share them digitally via scan-to options. Use optional fax via email capabilities to reduce costs. Minimize delays by expanding paper capacity from a standard 3,700 sheets to a maximum of 8,100 sheets.

Get every color for the every day

Take advantage of excellent toner yield from our innovative PxP-EQ technology for brilliant professional colors on more types media with up to 1200 x 4800 dpi resolution. Add full-bleeds on three edges and print banners up to 49.6" long. With continuous color calibration, every print offers brighter colors and smoother gradations.

Push toward convenience

The Smart Operation Panel offers touchscreen convenience. Choose from multiple intuitive interfaces. Download convenient apps to uncover new information and automate workflows. Use one-touch controls for primary tasks, or add icons for specialized functions such as ID Card Copy or Scan to Folder Helper. You can even choose optional workflow software, including RICOH Streamline NX® and Nuance® AutoStore®, to move information faster.

Hit the finish line in style

Reduce outsourcing costs by producing more professional-looking brochures in-house. Choose from three powerful finishers to automate tasks. Add a wide range of finishing options, including hole-punching, booklet-making, a multi-folding unit, cover interposing and more.

Pinpoint information, avoid delays

Store up to 3,000 frequently used documents on the Document Server and grab them with one touch. Use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to place metadata on files and find them with a keyword search. Locate information online or from cloud applications via the embedded web browser, and print them immediately.

Work where (and when) you want

Download the RICOH Smart Device Connector app to control the MP C6503 from your smartphone or tablet without software or utilities, and wirelessly print on demand. Scan hardcopies at the MFP and transfer them to your mobile device to take electronic versions with you on the go.

Stay aware from anywhere

Have users log in via passcodes, billing codes or with the optional Near Field Communication (NFC) Card Reader so you can track printing, set quotas and even assign chargebacks via Ricoh Device Manager NX Accounting. You can also collect meter reads, update print drivers, manage configurations and more.

Add energy to your work, not your office costs

Program the MFP to power off at specified times. Use the default duplex setting to save paper. Take advantage of fewer vibrations for quieter performance, and use the Eco-Friendly Screen to send users reminders about responsible paper usage.
