RISO Unveils Cut-Sheet Production Inkjet Printer

27 August 2019

RISO Kagaku Corp. has launched a new brand of high-speed production inkjet printers. The brand’s first product, the VALEZUS T2100, is a high-speed, 320-ppm full-color cut-sheet printer.

One of RISO’s commanding strengths is the development of inks optimized for high-speed paper feeding and high-speed printing. This expertise enables RISO to deliver unique printing solutions serving the demand for high-volume printing.

By connecting printer engines to print the front and back sides respectively, the VALEZUS T2100 achieves a fast double-sided printing speed of 320 ppm. The VALEZUS T2100 offers a compact footprint for a production printer as well as superior ease of use and maintenance.

With these features, the VALEZUS T2100 increases productivity and dramatically improves work efficiency in high-volume printing. In high-volume printing applications, such as transactional printing at print service providers, in-house printing at financial institutions, insurance companies and government offices, the VALEZUS T2100 opens a world of new possibilities in cut-sheet printing.

The VALEZUS T2100 will be available in the fall, and RISO Inc. will show the inkjet printer at PRINTING United, October 23 - 25 in Dallas.
Main features of the VALEZUS T2100:

The VALEZUS T2100 can print 320 ppm (continuous printing of A4-sized paper with long-edge feed on standard settings) or 19,200 pages per hour (not including cleaning time), based on full-color, double-sided printing of A4-sized paper. Because the VALEZUS T2100 is a cut sheet printer, it can easily handle short-run jobs as well, enabling speedy processing of a diverse range of jobs.

The VALEZUS T2100 is equipped with two high-capacity feeder/stacker units, each capable of feeding and stacking up to 4,000 sheets (total of 8,000 sheets). The two units can be switched while the printer is active, allowing users to load/unload paper without stopping the job. Also, the stacker unit is equipped with a jogger mechanism and dedicated cart, enabling smooth transition to post-processing after printing. The feeder/stacker units are scheduled to be available in the spring of 2020.

The VALEZUS T2100 can fit in existing workflow of customers. It supports PDF and Postscript, generally used in an open system environment as well as AFP/IPDS, which is used as an industry standard for mission-critical production print applications.

The VALEZUS T2100 incorporates an inkjet system that adopts oil-based inks ensuring energy-saving operation. Oil-based inks contribute to energy-saving because there is no need for ink-drying heaters required for water-based inks, and unlike toner-based technologies, there is no heat-fixing process required.
