Compact and Durable

Ricoh’s leading LED printer maintains exceptional speed, quality and reliability throughout long runs. Its powerful Intel 1.1 - 1.3 GHz processor effortlessly processes complex jobs and eliminating bottlenecks, the printer delivers its first pristine 1,200 x 1,200 dpi print in under 5 seconds. Multi-page document sets are produced at a blistering 43 pages per minute.

  1. Excellent performance
    Maximum input capacity of 2,100 sheets with optional paper banks provide longer uninterrupted print runs.
  2. High quality output
    Maximum 1,200 x 1,200 dpi print resolution ensures sharp and crisp text every time.
  3. Reliable and easy to use
    Compact footprint enables devices to be installed in almost any location—from office desks to under retail shop counters.
  4. Security in our DNA
    DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) keeps hard drive contents protected, making all confidential data unrecoverable by overwriting latent digital images after all print jobs.
