Digital Machine For HSE Print and Design Work
Riso has launched two new A3 digital duplicators, one of which it is referring to as the fastest of its kind on the digital market
The two-colour MF9350 and single-colour SF9390 are both set for commercial availability in early 2018, with pricing yet to be disclosed, and, at 190spm, Riso is referring to the SF9390 as the fastest duplicator ever, while the MF9350 runs two colour at 150spm.
Riso UK product manager Mike Murphy said the products follow on from the 2015 launch of the world’s first A2 digital duplicators, along with a lower-end SF model that was introduced around a year ago.
Murphy said: “These are evolutions of previous models but offer new enhancements. A lot of the things that were previously options, like network cards, are now included, so connectivity is much more standard.
“So we’re offering enhancements, the engines are similar to previous models but they’ve enhanced image processing, so even though the resolution is the same you can get a sharper print and better productivity in terms of speed; the whole makeready process has been sped up as well.”
The machines work by utilising a master sheet, which is created by sending a file from a connected PC to create an image by means of tiny heat spots on a thermal plate. The master sheet is then wrapped around a drum and the ink is forced through the holes onto passing sheets at high speed to create each image on the paper,then it is ready to print
Shanowen files have purchased this new high speed digital machine for medical printed forms as we do a lot of HSE Print and Design Work and we hope to have it printing by late December depending on shipping from the UK
