Ricoh next generation Direct to Garment technology offers productivity breakthrough
Ricoh Europe, London, 16 September 2020 – Ricoh is responding to the needs of the modern garment decorator for heightened productivity, best-in-class operation and ease of use with the launch of the Ricoh Ri 2000 Direct to Garment (DTG) printer. The next generation 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 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 EMEA from November. To see it live, book your (virtual) demo through your local Ricoh representative.
