Ricoh has released more info about its new Pro TF6250 UV flatbed, which will be showcased at Sign and Digital UK alongside its new Pro L5130/5160 latex printers and Ri 1000 direct-to-garment printer.
The 2.5m x 1.3m LED Ricoh Pro TF6250 will have a top production speed of 64.6m2/hr and be able to handle substrates up to 110mm in thickness. It is based on the same architecture as the Ricoh Pro T7210 and has one-touch automated daily maintenance tasks such as printhead purging. Four individual vacuum zones and registration pins help keep precise registration. An auto-sensor adjusts the printheads to the correct height to maintain accuracy.
Graham Kennedy, head of commercial inkjet business, commercial and industrial printing, Ricoh Europe, said: “In large-format, the difference between an application that stands out, and one that does not, often comes down to the inks that deliver the highest quality with adherence to a wide variety of substrates. That is why we have developed two UV ink sets. Pro TF6250 users will be able to choose an ink type designed to assure high colour gamut for the sign and graphic market or an ink type with high adhesion ideal for industrial applications.”
