London, August 27th, 2015 – Ricoh today announced that it will continue to take their technology to the next level by confirming its plan at The Print Show, an annual exhibition designed to provide the key tools that everyone from the smallest high-street print shop to the biggest corporation need to remain competitive.
Ricoh will showcase some of its flagship and latest technology at this year’s show such as the Ricoh Pro™ C9110, showing visitors essential and inspiring applications that demonstrates how digital print technology can improve profitability and ensure users keep one step ahead of their customer’s needs. Ricoh will also showcase some of their latest services and applications for the first time on the stand, such as the Watkiss Power Square on the Ricoh Pro™ C9110 and MarcomCentral – a Ricoh platform that manages and customizes a businesses’ marketing content across its entire organisation.
Stephen Palmer, Production Print Director at Ricoh UK said: “We are extremely excited to form a significant part of this inaugural event for the UK and Irish print industry. There are lots of innovative ideas that are moving this growing industry forward and I trust Ricoh will be seen at the show as a partner who not only brings new technology to the market, but quickly develops extremely interesting, real world, printed applications that printers can take inspiration from and apply to their own business.”
Ricoh will, for the first time, showcase some of its latest and most innovative applications and services. This includes the Watkiss Power Square on the Ricoh Pro™ C9110, which is a unique, streamlined book making system for digital and offset print applications. Paul Attew, Sales Director of Watkiss Automation said: ”We know customers benefit from integrated print and finishing solutions; and the combination of Ricoh’s high volume digital presses with the Watkiss PowerSquare™ 224 will meet their demand for both productivity and outstanding quality. We are delighted to work with Ricoh to bring this solution to their customers.”
Ricoh will also present the latest capability to print on Blake envelopes, which has been designed specifically for Ricoh printers. When used with the Ricoh Pro™ C7110x, it has the ability to produce jobs that use clear or white ink meaning printers can now produce eye catching direct mail pieces for their clients at a very affordable cost.
