RICOH launched its rst colour digital
printers in the light production space,
with the Pro C5110S and Ricoh Pro
Reaching output speeds in both
colour and mono up to 80ppm (Ricoh
Pro C5110S) and 65ppm (Ricoh Pro
C5100S) they are designed for the
production of on-demand prestigious
marketing material, collateral or client
Kathy Wilson, general manager
Ricoh, said, "The printers complete
our range, we haven't been able to
o er light printers before. The high
productivity and small footprint are
ideal for the markets they are aimed at."
The printers have a newly
developed toner formulation which has
increased its colour gamut by 10 per
cent.The toner has also been developed
to fuse at a lower temperature, which
in turn also ensures a quicker warm-up
time for increased productivity.
The Pro C5110S and Pro C5100S are
also the rst Ricoh digital production
printers to feature enhanced toner
transfer technology, which the
company says delivers high quality
print results on heavily textured stock
-- suited for direct mail and marketing
applications. Ricoh says media exibility
is a hallmark of the two new models,
with a new fuser assembly which uses
information from the media library
to optimise the fuser temperature
and pressure combination for each
Wilson also highlighted its Clickable
Paper, rst seen at drupa. Now in beta
testing in the US the Clickable Paper
enables smartphone users to scan the
printed image and be led to a website.

FERROSTAAL'S PacPrint stand was the rst
opportunity the company had to show its
new MGI agency, with a Meteor digital press
on the stand.
Ferrostaal has already sold an MGI,
to Kosdown Printing in Melbourne, with
Ferrostaal's managing director Markus
Haefeli telling Australian Printer that he had
two more orders.
The MGI printers di erentiate
themselves from other digital machines by their ability to print on a wide
range of plastic and other non-paper stocks.
Hae li said the company's Komori business is on the up, pointing to
recent orders from CMYKhub Vic for an eight-colour HUV B1 perfector
and ArtVu in Sydney for a B2 version. He says, "The HUV series has
makeready down to just 20 sheets, a fraction of the usual number. If you
multiply this by the number of jobs in a day and the number of days ina
year that represents a hefty saving, and that's just the paper, the fact that
jobs are quicker to go also means e ciency improvements."
The Morgana range of nishing equipment for digital printers was
one of the most popular areas at the show, Ferrostaal was highlighting
the new Morgana 450 DigiBook PUR binder, which can equally be used
by digital and litho printers.
The 450 books an hour system will take books with spine thicknesses
between 2-50mm, and is equipped with a patented closed gluing system
where the spine and side gluing is applied by a slot applicator for quality

spree industry giant EFI
highlighted its end to end
solutions, and launched a sign
viewing analysis solution.
Australian general manager at
EFI, said, "In today's business
environment printers are
under pressure. The EFI end
to end solutions are designed
