  • Latest version of Ricoh ProcessDirector, plus Ricoh Supervisor. Both software solutions are designed to streamline production while a solutions studio workflow will detail how they elevate efficiency.

Ricoh’s hugely popular commercial and industrial solutions will also be on show, including the Buyers Lab award winning  ProTM L5160 dual CMYK large format production printer and the versatile SGIA award winning Ri 1000 Direct to Garment printer. These, together with some new developments still under wraps, demonstrate a credible commitment to transformational innovation. They incorporate innovative research and development focused on helping PSPs future proof their print production.

Dedicated zones will feature real life applications from a wide array of Ricoh systems delivering inspiration around the imaginative creativity possible. A live end-to-end workflow will provide real time insight into optimum production possibilities.

“Since last drupa our portfolio of services and solutions has been significantly expanded to support creative print service providers, industrial printers and Sign and Display specialists as they transform their operations to meet the increasingly broad requirements of their clients,” states Eef De Ridder, Vice President, Commercial and Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe. “It now includes everything from productive high speed colour inkjet and versatile enhanced sheetfed technologies to responsive large format latex and flexible wide format solutions, as well as simple to integrate Direct to Garment (DTG) systems.
