Want to grow your business in every direction?

With the new Ricoh Pro L4160 you can do just that. Thanks to the latest Ricoh technology and eco‑friendly durable latex inks, you can dramatically expand your offering for indoor and outdoor use.

Bigger is always better

Help clients boost their visibility with big, bold applications like billboards and banners, soft signage and display panels that demand attention. From outdoor and indoor signage, retail POS and POP, exhibition and event graphics and vehicle wraps and wall coverings, there’s no job you can’t handle for them. Superior‑quality printing and colour matching across a wide variety of media will keep you competing with specialty shops, and winning big accounts.

Print the rainbow (plus white)

Want to offer more services to your customers? Accept more specialty jobs and reach more markets? Now you can. Ricoh goes beyond basic with up to six‑colour process printing, adding orange and green to the standard CMYK setup, so you can have more colour options and increased colour gamut for exceptional results that pop on any surface. You can even print with white ink – think printing on clear substrates – and use it as a base colour for the best image quality on both sides.

  1. Versatile new ink technology that’s eco‑friendly
    Withstand the harshest environments without being harsh on the environment with aqueous latex inks that print on a wide range of media
  2. Be an efficiency expert
    Generate more business the easy way. The Pro L4160 uses a powerful print driver designed to make even the biggest jobs less stressful
  3. Get dry with zero delay
    Rush job? Right on. The Pro L4160 is a roll‑fed printer, with some of the quickest throughputs on the market. Your print jobs will come out with no delay, thanks to eight ink cartridges configured to your preferences, and a three‑way intelligent heater that maintains proper temperatures pre‑printing, during printing and during drying to expedite printing and deliver the best results
  4. The right results, every time
    Deliver high quality output time after time with innovative high-speed print heads, arranged in a single line, to ensure the exact drop is dispensed on every detail of every job. Multi‑jetting allows three drops of various sizes to be dropped simultaneously to accommodate all kinds of media and density requirements
  5. Never turn down a big job again
    Have you had to turn projects down or even outsource them because they were too big for your business? Now you can broaden your printing horizons and reach new markets by saying “yes” to the largest of requests. The Pro L4160 can output jobs up to 1,620 mm (63”) wide and as long as the roll you’re printing on – talk about endless possibilities.
