Reduce ink usage and cost for RICOH Pro VC40000 and Pro VC60000 continuous feed systems

By reducing ink consumption, you can improve profitability, lower costs to be more price competitive and finish jobs quicker. A Ricoh color management expert gathers data, taking into account environmental conditions, media, print speeds and output resolution. Our engineers create a customized ICC profile that optimizes ink utilization for a specific media and printer. You pay a low one-time fee per profile instead of installing and maintaining software.
