In the world of multifunctional printers, efficiency and document security are huge priorities that can have a big impact on a company’s bottom line. But one printer does not fit all needs. In an effort to provide customers with many options, Ricoh recently added five new high-volume printers to its A4 line.
The new RICOH MP C501SP provides power for high-volume and quality-conscious office print environments, and also serves as an excellent collaboration hub. Complementing the MP C501SP are the 34-page-per-minute (ppm), black-and-white RICOH SP 3710SF, SP 3710DN, SP 330SFN and SP 330DN models, which provide budget-friendly options with high uptime.
The Collaboration Hub
The RICOH MP C501SP delivers 50-ppm speed and an internal finisher. The MP C501SP’s 10.1-inch Smart Operation Panel leverages an intuitive interface and familiar pinch, swipe and flick gestures to navigate a variety of features and workflows. The Smart Operation Panel intuitively connects users to smart support tools and RICOH Cloud Workflow Solutions applications.
The User-Friendly Workhorses
The 34-ppm black-and-white RICOH SP 3710SF and SP 3710DN, an MFP and printer, respectively, drive high uptime by keeping maintenance simple and less frequently required. The devices’ All-in-One Cartridge makes keeping track of and replacing consumables easy. The starter cartridge’s high yield – toner supply rated for 7,000 pages of use, up to seven times higher yield than some competitive supplies – lets users print uninterrupted for longer periods before having to change out consumables. An optional 250-sheet paper tray can boost these devices’ capacity to 550 sheets, further contributing to higher uptime. The SP 3710SF has a simple 4.3-inch embedded color touch panel to help navigate MFP features, while the SP 3710DN printer has a simplified four-line LCD panel display.
The SP 330SFN and SP 330DN provide the same features as the SP 3710SF MFP and SP 3710DN printer, respectively. However, the SP 330SFN and SP 330DN come with an industry-standard starter supply of toner rated for 1,000 pages.
A key aspect of empowering digital workplaces is making information in all its forms reliably secure and accessible. For that reason, the RICOH MP C501SP employs network and device encryption, the ability to lock down unused network ports, latent data controls and other advanced security features, such as onboard DataOverwrite Security System and User Authentication, to help protect information copied, printed, scanned, stored and/or routed through it. Locked Print allows SP 3710SF, SP 3710DN, SP 330SFN and SP 330DN users to require a password to retrieve prints at the device, which can help improve document security and reduce wasteful printing. The MP C501SP comes equipped with a suite of smart support features to proactively promote uptime, such as remote diagnostics and troubleshooting, automatic alerts to support organizations when unscheduled service is needed, and preventative maintenance reminders.
