  1. Solutions to get your bottom line soaring
    Produce high-value, personalized and data-driven applications — from sales collateral and brochures to direct mail, catalogs, color manuals, custom publications and more — at speeds up to 150 metre per minute
  2. Reliably produce the colors you need
    With a higher pigment-to-water ratio, these inks deliver superior adhesion and allow you to confidently produce more colors consistently, impression after impression and job after job.
  3. Achieve finer detail and reduced ink usage with image-level variable drop sizes
    While other inkjet systems can apply differing drop sizes at a page or file level, the RICOH Pro VC70000 gives you the power to vary them down to the pixel level
  4. Get polished results with advanced drying technologies and built-in anti-cockling
    Innovative new drying technologies set and cure inks inline for outstanding results on offset coated papers and a wider variety of media while allowing for high-speed print production
