Eco-friendly options from Ricoh
Ricoh has announced that its new Ricoh Pro L4100 latex large format printer series, which comes in 130cm or 160cm widths, and supports up to seven colours in various configurations, will be available within the UK in March.
Ideally suited to use by the specialist signing market, the Ricoh Pro L4160 and L4130 deliver high print productivity and quality as a result of technological innovations that include the Ricoh piezo electric print heads. The series also meets the demand for products that reduce the environmental impact of printing through use of aqueous latex ink and low power consumption.
The Ricoh Pro L4100’s latex ink is an water-based ink that contains a low level of VOCs and has no odour, while the low curing temperature of 60°C facilitates both quick drying for fast turnaround, and has the ability to print on many heat-sensitive substrates without damaging them.
The extensive array of available media includes PVC, tarpaulin, synthetic paper, coated-paper, uncoated paper, film and textiles. In addition, it enables the use of lighter weight substrates, thus reducing overall costs, including transportation.
Ricoh plans to further increase the range of compatible substrates through its continuing media profiling and testing programme in partnership with Colour Concepts, an industry standard for media validation.
