The new range of monochrome laser printers will be released in January.
The OEM announced that the monochrome A4 single and multi-functional devices are designed to “help small and medium-sized offices save money and space”, with the five printers in the range set to be launched in the UK market in January 2015 featuring “attractive initial purchase price[s] and low total cost of ownership”.
The five printers include the SP 4510DN, SP 4510SF, SP 3600DN, SP 3600SF and SP 3610SF, and feature designs that aim to “meet customer requirements for high performance and fit-for-purpose functionality”, including a small size so as not to take up “valuable space”. The SP 4510SF features a 4.3-inch touch panel, whilst the other four printers include a four-line LCD display.
All five printers feature Ricoh’s latest controller and LED technology, with print resolutions of 1,200 dpi, increased paper handling capacity, USB and SD card printing (for the SP 4510SF only) as well as faxing capability for the three MFPs in the range – the SP 4510SF, SP 3600SF and SP 3610SF. First print for all the machines is 6.5 seconds, with print speeds of 40ppm and high duty cycles featuring alongside WiFi connectivity (except for the SP 3600DN) and a “toner save” feature.
The printers are also compatible with Ricoh’s@Remote performance monitoring software, and are built from recycled and bio-plastic components, while sleep mode and ECO mode options allow for energy-saving prints.
Karen Lawrence, Head of Product Marketing at Ricoh, commented: “The new models are ideal for cost-conscious offices as they are offered at an affordable purchase price and come equipped with Ricoh’s new Quick Start Up (QSU) fusing system, which reduces Total Electricity Consumption (TEC) values.
“In addition, the on/off timer cuts energy consumption and costs, and the SP 4510DN and SP 4510SF come with the high-performance Ricoh GWNX controller, which leads to further cost/time savings, increased operational efficiency, and ultimately reduced total cost of ownership.”
