Ricoh Pro C9110 Award

Apex is delighted to announce that the Ricoh Pro C9110 Series digital colour production press has been awarded the 2016 Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) PRO award.

BLI’s challenging production tests reveal the attributes that distinguish the most outstanding performers, and the Ricoh systems are the only models to earn BLI’s 5 star rating for media handling since the production test programme began.

The Ricoh Pro C9110 has won BLI’s 2016 PRO Award as “Outstanding Mid- to High-Volume Colour Production Device” for its:

  • Significant speed advantages across the entire media range versus its competitors.
  • Support for media weights up to 400gsm, including for duplexing, from all sources.
  • Exceptional media handling, including more than double the maximum paper capacity of most rival units, allowing for longer unattended runs.
  • Class leading array of inline finishing options which include a perfect binder, high capacity stacker, full bleed square-edge booklet maker and inline ring bindery
  • Impressive colour consistency, with no colours shifting by more than Delta E 3.3 over the course of a 1,000 page print run on both coated and uncoated media.
  • Excellent fine detail reproduction in full colour output, especially in light contrast areas, and very good depth of field.

Noting that the Ricoh Pro C9110 Series is the company’s fastest sheet-fed production device to date, David Sweetnam, BLI’s director of research and lab services EMEA/Asia, said that its ability to maintain its 130 ppm rated speed up to its impressive maximum media weight of 400gsm “leaves clear blue sky between this model and its closest rivals and brings it into new territory where it can now compete in some workflows against significantly higher priced production devices.”

With its exceptional productivity and media handling, the Ricoh Pro C9110 Series has established several new benchmarks for other vendors to aim for and is certainly going to be a very attractive proposition for many commercial print and CRD environments,adds BLI Senior Analyst Ian Latham.
