MALVERN, Pa., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Americas Corporation today introduced two new full-color digital imaging systems for in-plant print centers and print service providers who demand productivity, versatility and outstanding quality at an affordable price. The RICOH Pro C5100S and RICOH Pro C5110S production imaging systems print and copy up to 65 ppm and 80 ppm respectively, producing professional-looking output that can be collated and finished in line.

Ideal for helping businesses launch their first production printing programs, the devices blend application flexibility, high productivity and cost-effectiveness in a compact footprint. In addition, both models feature a new toner formulation that increases the printable color gamut by 10 percent compared to Ricoh's other color production printers and has a lower fusing temperature, which means faster warm-up times and lower energy consumption.

The RICOH Pro C5100S and RICOH Pro C5110S are also the first to feature a new, enhanced toner transfer technology and elastic fusing-belt technology to deliver higher-quality imaging on heavily textured media. The imaging systems enable customers to save more than 60 attributes to a single Media Library selection to minimize guesswork and enhance productivity.

"Ricoh has integrated proven imaging and paper-handling technologies from the RICOH Pro C651EX/C751EX Series and the recently launched RICOH Pro C901 GA+ to result in an affordable solution that can handle a wide range of printing applications from linen stocks to envelopes," said Tim Vellek, Vice President, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "Using advanced configured finishing options, customers can produce finished documents ready for distribution without any manual intervention."

With complete color scanning capability, the systems also serve a key role in business information solutions as hubs for input, processing and output to help companies meet their most important organizational goals. Customers with any Ricoh production printing solution have access to Ricoh's Business Booster Program, which is designed to help customers market their services and drive print volume. They can also take advantage of Ricoh TotalFlow® software solutions, designed to help owners seize the full potential of Ricoh's advanced technology for customer satisfaction and profit.

Control, finishing and powerful interface
To simplify print management in Windows or Mac environments, the RICOH Pro C5100S and RICOH Pro C5110S offer two controller options, including the value-based Fiery® E-22B, or the server-based Fiery E-42B for advanced control typically reserved for high-end devices. Both controllers are running the very latest EFI FS-100 platform for unparalleled color control and seamless workflow integration.

The RICOH Pro C5100S and RICOH Pro C5110S incorporate a wide range of professional-grade finishing options for stapling, hole punching, saddle stitching, full bleed booklet finishing and more. For example, customers can insert pre-printed front and back covers and choose from a wide variety of folding options.

To maximize uptime, the RICOH Pro C5100S and RICOH Pro C5110S make it easy for trained users to quickly replace up to a dozen key imaging units, as well as consumables, without technical assistance, thanks to Trained Customer Replaceable Units (TCRUs). TCRUs empower customers to manage their own service schedules and address key component replacements as they need, and reduce reliance on service calls.
