Ri­coh Sur­prises with New Line of Prod­ucts That In­cor­po­rate Jam-Free Rollers and Ink-Sav­ing Tech­nol­ogy

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB -

Ri­coh Malaysia re­cently launched its new range of print­ers and pro­jec­tors in Kota Da­mansara at an in­for­mal me­dia pre­view. Amongst the prod­ucts show­cased were a lineup of jam-free laser print­ers, a se­ries of color laser print­ers, an in­ter­ac­tive short throw pro­jec­tor, and a pre­view of the GelJet four-in­one prin­ter.

Tout­ing a newly de­vel­oped roller sys­tem that pre­vents pa­per jams even when fed with crum­pled and par­tially torn pa­per are the RI­COH SP 112 se­ries laser print­ers. The most af­ford­able of the se­ries is the sin­gle func­tion SP 112. Slim and com­pact, the prin­ter is able to pro­duce 16 pages-per-minute and costs only RM299.

Its larger sib­lings are the SP 112SU and the SP 122SF. Sim­i­lar in func­tion­al­ity, both mul­ti­func­tion print­ers can scan, copy, and print doc­u­ments. How­ever, the SP 112SF could also send and re­ceive fax. The SP 112SU and the SP 122SF are priced at RM469 and RM669, re­spec­tively.

For those look­ing for a color laser prin­ter so­lu­tion, Ri­coh of­fers the SP C250 se­ries. The SP C250DN and SP C250SF both boast smart de­vice con­nec­tiv­ity, and a con­stant 20 page-per-minute prints for both color and mono­chrome. The SP C250SF, how­ever, has the ad­van­tage of be­ing a multi-pur­pose prin­ter with copier, fac­sim­ile and scan­ner ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The SP C250DN and SP C250SF are priced at RM899 and RM1,799, re­spec­tively.

The most in­ter­est­ing of the print­ers on show was the SG 3120B SFNw, Ri­coh’s lat­est eco-friendly prin­ter and its first bat­tery-driven GelJet four-in-one mul­ti­func­tion prin­ter. The prin­ter is ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing 1,000 pages or six hours of con­tin­u­ous print­outs on a sin­gle charge. It uses a fast-dry­ing vis­cous pig­ment­based Liq­uid Gel, which pro­duces smudge free and wa­ter re­sis­tant ink.

Fur­ther­more, the prin­ter is equipped with spe­cial tech­nol­ogy that re­duces ink loss, es­pe­cially dur­ing a prin­ter’s ini­tial boot and di­ag­nos­tics. This re­sults in the prin­ter be­ing able to print up to 2,000 pages on a sin­gle set of car­tridges, which is dou­ble the num­ber as com­pared to a sim­i­lar prin­ter with­out the sys­tem. The SG 3120B SFNw is ex­pected to have a price tag of some­where be­tween RM1,500 and RM2,000.

Also at the event was Ri­coh’s lat­est PJ WX4141 Ul­tra Short Throw Pro­jec­tor se­ries. It comes in three vari­ants: the PJ WX4141, PJ WX4141N, and the PJ WX4141NI. All three pro­jec­tors are able to pro­duce an image, while be­ing as close as 11.7cm away from the pro­jec­tion wall.

While the PJ WX4141 is the most ba­sic pro­jec­tor in the se­ries, the PJ WX4141N fea­tures wire­less and wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity. The PJ WX4141NI, on the other hand, fea­tures in­ter­ac­tiv­ity where the user could use a sty­lus to move the cur­sor on the screen ac­cu­rately from a dis­tance. With this air sty­lus, users and write, draw, or make notes on the dis­play from a dis­tance.

Mean­while, Ri­coh also an­nounced that the P3000 Uni­fied Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Sys­tem and D5500 In­ter­ac­tive White­board will be bun­dled to­gether for RM25,000. As a spe­cial pro­mo­tion, from July 1 un­til Septem­ber 30, the combo can be or­dered at a dis­counted price of RM19,000.

Win­nie Lim, Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of Ri­coh Malaysia demon­strated how the SP112 could print on crum­pled and torn pa­per with­out jam­ming.
