The all-around production consistency of the colour sheetfed RICOH Pro C7200sx Series has been recognised with a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021 PRO Award for Mid-Volume CMYK+ Production Device from Keypoint Intelligence. The independent seal of approval for document imaging hardware and software follows in depth testing against a comprehensive set of technical criteria. Ricoh digital print production systems are marketed and distributed in India by Monotech Systems Limited.
David Sweetnam, Director of EMEA/Asia Research & Lab Services, Keypoint Intelligence (parent company of BLI), says: “We were especially impressed by its performance over our production length test suite, where, over a series of six challenging 1.5 hour workflows generating over 37,000 clicks, the device never suffered a colour drift across the 42 colours in the FOGRA39 media wedge of more than DeltaE00 3.8, neither did it exhibit a front-to-back or page-to-page registration shift of more than 0.4 mm, earning it our coveted 5 Star rating in this category.”
“The RICOH Pro C7210sx/x is designed from the bottom up as a production workhorse,” adds Martin Soane, European Lab Manager, Keypoint Intelligence. “The device’s fifth imaging station allows printshops to go beyond CMYK, including fluorescents, white, clear, and invisible red.”
Ricky Tan, General Manager, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh Asia Pacific, comments: “It is a great honour for another one of our solutions to achieve this industry recognition – particularly following such rigorous testing. It is also a testament to the commitment of our research and development, engineering, and manufacturing teams that the consistency of registration remained true throughout the thorough process.”
Ajeet Pareek, Business Head-Digital Products and Solutions, Monotech Systems comments: “This recognition brings a great honour and credibility to the product and it will help us in positioning well in the competitive Indian printing industry.”
