The OEM subsidiary stated that the two new printers – the SP C840DN and C842DN – are designed to “help businesses adapt to the modern office’s changing needs”, with “high-volume, high-quality output with numerous finishing options for printing needs”, including “one-off labels in a pharmacy environment to colour marketing materials”.
Their “compact size” is also said to allow companies to “eliminate the need to outsource jobs that require higher quality output” and “additional finishing requirements” for saving “needed time and money”. The machines both feature “swipe, pinch and flick” 10.1-inch touchscreens, alongside a “free-of-charge” Ricoh Smart Device Connector app for “quick and easy” mobile printing, and a web browser.
The SP C840DN and C842DN feature respective print speeds of 45ppm and 60ppm, and utilise Ricoh’s Workstyle Innovation Technology for easy and quick access to “needed documents”, with “customisable menus” and “document presets”. In turn, a motion detector “wakes the device from sleep mode in one second” for “improve[d] overall system availability”.
Both machines also offer “enhanced finishing options” including “automatic stapleless stapling” and a “space-saving internal paper folding unit”, with paper sizes supported including 11.69 x 16.53 inches, 12.6 x 18 inches and 12.6 x 49.6 inches to help produce “tri-fold brochures, informational booklets, banners and other marketing collateral”.
The OEM concluded that both machines feature “versatility and power […] in a remarkably small footprint, both in terms of physical space and environmental sustainability”, and “have among the lowest TEC values in their class, which works with a fast-recovery from sleep mode to drive down energy use, saving on cost while reducing environmental impact”.
John Brophy, Vice President of Product Marketing at Ricoh USA, commented: “Today’s businesses are always looking for ways to do more with less. The Ricoh SP C840DN and RICOH SP C842DN meet that need by enabling Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and collaboration, allowing all of your critical documents to be printed quickly and easily in-house, and streamlining the print process, all while taking up surprisingly little space. These devices have some of the highest capabilities-per-square-inch in the market.”
