Ricoh launches IP CW2200 and IM CW2200 digital colour large format printers

Ricoh has launched itsIP CW2200 and IM CW2200 digital colour large format printers, which aim to provide users with agile, responsive and more secure creation of CAD drawings and other large documents (A1/A0). 

The compact digital colour IP CW2200 wide format plotter enables the creation of high-quality output quickly, easily, and affordably. Ricoh said this new addition to its portfolio of wide format printers answers the market’s increased demand for print-only systems.

The small footprint, next-generation printer supports the production of CAD drawings, from precise line drafts to boldly coloured 3D renders, with the highest accuracy and finest details.

The complementary new IM CW2200 wide format multifunctional printer adds scanning and copying capability for documents up to A0 size. Designed to offer more than just a printing and scanning solution, it can act as a secure document hub for technical files to share jobs easily and help enhance productivity.

Ricoh said these systems respond to today’s business needs of architecture, engineering, manufacturing, and construction, as well as print rooms and government departments.

Some of the key benefits in both systems include:

  • Superior image quality for precise detail enabled by Ricoh’s own variable dot GEL-Jet Ricoh Piezo print heads and GELJET pigment-based inks. This combination delivers UV and water-resistant output that dries quickly for immediate use, indoors or outdoors, with no smudging.
  • Longevity as the permanent print heads eliminate the need for replacements, helping maintain a low total cost of ownership.
  • Productivity thanks to a printable maximum length of 33m. The ability to print A0 up to 1200 x 1200 dpi at 3.8 ppm black and white or 2.1 ppm full colour means the printer offers some of the fastest print speeds in its class. 
  • Flexible production for increased efficiency powered by Ricoh’s open architecture USB SD Card workflow. Data can be submitted from different sources including a USB stick, remotely dedicated web tool or via the standard printer driver. 
  • Environmentally responsible operation, which is aided by Ink Save Mode and short warm up times. There is no paper waste and inkjet technology does not produce emissions.

The Ricoh IP CW2200 and IM CW2200 comprise several enhanced elements designed to meet evolving needs. They include:

  • Faster scanning and printing speeds of high quality, precision documents such as site plans, technical drawings, and design graphics at up to 35.3mm/s for colour and up to 106.7mm/s for mono documents. [IM CW2200 only]
  • New stack tray that can hold up to 10 sheets of A1 documents for increased productivity of scanning and/or copy jobs. [IM CW2200 only]
  • New automatic paper roll setting that prints documents up to 33m long and eliminates the need to hand feed the paper.
  • New Smart Operation Panel offers an easy to navigate, intuitive, colour touchscreen interface, which is consistent with other Ricoh products, so no user training is required. Leading to improved interactivity and fewer operation errors.
  • Quicker and easier changing of the paper roll thanks to the automatic paper roll feeding, which holds 175m rolls of paper, saves time, saves paper, and offers increased convenience. A second roll-to-roll option can be installed too.

Ricoh Australia graphic communications senior product and marketing manager Henryk Kraszewski said, “The Ricoh IP CW2200 colour wide format solution handles all high-quality oversized printing needs, affordably.

“The Ricoh IM CW2200 makes easier work of large precision CAD documents or CAD drawings with fast scanning and copying, and digitising projects with automated scanning capabilities. This means less time at the printer and more time focusing on projects.

“Fast and easy to use, they boost productivity. Their versatility enables them to meet varied application needs and reduce outsourcing while costs can be reduced through labour savings.

“Environmentally friendly operation makes them an attractive operation for eco-conscious businesses, too. These benefits combine to offer clients a highly productive system that cost-efficiently responds to changing demands.”

The RICOH IP CW2200 and IM CW2200 are both available now in Australia.
