New Ricoh printers offer customisable integration, reliability and low TCO


Ricoh’s latest release of black and white multifunction printers combine advanced features and workflow tools with affordability, making them ideal for offices and workgroups looking to stretch their budget further.

The Aficio SP 5200 series offer a small footprint, yet deliver printing, copying, colour scanning and optional faxing with the added ability to integrate business tools that save time, cost, waste, complexity and CO2.

What makes these devices unique is their ability to be customised with java-embedded solutions. Customers can work with Ricoh’s in-house team of developers to design an application specific to an organisation’s workflow and systems.

“The Aficio SP 5200 series can be customised, providing extra features that can change the way businesses use their documents to improve their business,” said David Hampe, Manager of Product Strategy for Ricoh Australia.

The embedded architecture offers the ability to add software that can significantly improve and extend productivity. For example, they have the ability to scan hardcopy documents and convert them into a selected file format, automate scanning and routing into digital workflows, or can help with fleet management and carbon footprint reporting solutions.

One solution, ESA TransFormer, is an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) solution, which can be embedded directly in the printer. It takes scanned hard copy documents and converts them into a choice of file formats including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel or PDF. Since its launch three years ago, ESA TransFormer has been popular with customers of all sizes due to its functionality and affordability when compared to seat-based OCR products.

“With this fantastic new line-up of printers, everyone can now access business-focused features beyond the usual print, copy, scan and fax functions of an out-of-the-box black & white printer. What used to be seen as functionality for larger office environments is now available to organisations of any size, to improve their viability and success,” Hampe concluded.

The Aficio SP 5200S and Aficio SP 5200SR can copy, print, scan, offer double-sided printing as standard with a large 1GB of memory, a short warm up of under 20 seconds with the first print is produced in 10 seconds or less. Along with a reliable heavy duty cycle, high yield consumables and low energy consumption, they come with additional security as standard, including data encryption, overwrite security and HDD with Locked Print for extra peace of mind. Both have faxing as an option.

The Aficio SP 5200S prints 45 pages per minute. The Aficio SP 5200SR prints at 50 pages per minute and includes an inner finisher that can staple for superb professional results and a with a tilt function for easy of use in accessing the touch panel.
