Ricoh announces launch of Ricoh Ri 2000 DTG printer

Ricoh has announced the launch of the Ricoh Ri 2000 Direct to Garment (DTG) printer, responding to the needs of the modern garment decorator for heightened productivity, best-in-class operation and ease of use printer. Ricoh’s next generation DTG system supports the production of promotional and personalised goods locally.

The Ricoh Ri 2000 prints 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution on a wide range of garments, from traditional t-shirts or tote bags to an extended application range of canvas shoes, baseball caps or long sleeve shirts. It also supports the production of textile face masks and safety vests via the flexibility of the quick-change magnetic platen mechanism and the automatic table height adjustment that easily switches between garment types.

“The new generation of DTG printer represents Ricoh’s continued commitment to deliver industry leading inkjet solutions, empowering our customers to grow their business,” said Graham Kennedy, Director Industrial Printing, Ricoh Europe. “Working closely with early adopters in the continuously growing DTG market during product development, Ricoh customers can now enjoy the benefits of a DTG turnkey solution. The Ri 2000 meets the needs of innovative digital print providers, custom apparel online retailers, as well as traditional businesses offering added value by printing on garments. It joins Ricoh’s DTG portfolio that already includes the Ri 100 and Ri 1000 devices as the production flagship.”

The Ri 2000 sets a new benchmark in terms of productivity and efficiency in its class. This is achieved by integrating hardware and advanced software end-to-end.

• Enabling colour consistency, automation of production workflows and creation of white layers for printing on dark garments with ColorGATE’s Textile Productionserver.

• Continuously monitoring ink supply, temperature and humidity levels, reducing human interaction whenever required.

• Intuitively guiding the operator with a 7-inch colour touchscreen display providing maintenance alerts, for all tasks that are not automated.

• Simplifying maintenance with automated cleaning and an innovative head cleaning jig that eliminates the need to manually maintain print head nozzles.

The Ricoh Ri 2000 will be available in Europe, the Midde East and Africa from November.
