Ricoh Europe and Flora announce EMEA partnership

Ricoh Europe has formalised its relationship with Flora Digital, a prominent flatbed and large format digital inkjet manufacturer, with a strategic partnership agreement. Work is underway on the first portfolio addition to be developed under the new agreement.

Eef de Ridder, vice president, graphic communications group, Ricoh Europe, said: “We have been listening to our clients. Following the positive feedback and orders of Ricoh’s UV flatbed series, and the continuing market demand for flexible UV hybrid devices for sign and graphics applications, we wanted to explore how Ricoh technology could be combined with Flora’s manufacturing expertise to create responsive, versatile solutions that meets today’s market demands. We look forward to expanding our offering with systems that combine both parties’ technical knowledge and expertise to support clients as they evolve their large format capabilities.”

The new compact-footprinted flatbed hybrid printer will be powered by Ricoh printhead technology, ColorGate Rip software and ICC profiles. It will be able to run rigid and flexible media up to two metres wide on substrates ranging from PVC banners to vinyl and rigid boards while its linear motor technology will enable consistently high print quality and productivity. Support will be provided by Ricoh’s professional EMEA sales and service network.
