Ricoh releases wide format digital imaging system

Ricoh Americas Corporation said it has announced the new RICOH MP W7100/W8140 wide format digital imaging system, a versatile, affordable multifunction device which enables users to capture, transform and share wide-format information quickly, conveniently and economically from a single device — whether colleagues and clients are in the boardroom, on-site or on the manufacturing floor.

Users can produce wide-format technical drawings, schematics, presentations and more for a hands-on, up-close look at key details and other critical information with the W7100/W8140´s high-quality black-and-white printing, copying and built-in color scanning.

The RICOH MP W7100/MP W8140 is ideal for architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) firms who are looking to manage wide-format output with ease from a single multifunction device with a compact footprint while keeping more mid-volume, wide-format projects in house. Users can simply walk up and print up to 14 D-size wide format monochrome documents per minute, or scan full color originals and send to recipients with the press of a button. An intuitive 9-inch color VGA operation touch panel enables users to take advantage of thumbnail previews and check their work to avoid any errors before sharing it with colleagues and clients.
