Ricoh Launches New Laser Printers
Kuala Lumpur (30 May 2014) – As a successor to the first SP 100 series launched just last year, Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.’s latest refined compact black and white multifunction laser printer, the SP 112 series has made a significant upgrade in productivity, functionality and paper handling – even providing the first ever, long awaited solution to ridding one of the most frustrating work hindrances known to men – “paper jams”.
The new and improved SP112 series is set to edge out Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.’s competition as it is a quintessential fit for all personal, SMB, small and home office use, providing cutting edge office and print solutions poised to enhance and increase work efficiency.
Aside from now supporting a wider range of paper sizes, one of the revolutionary highlights of the SP 112 series is its robust and excellent paper handling ability to perpetuate an undisturbed printing performance even with the input of crumpled and torn paper, improving work efficiency and productivity by minimising unnecessary time wastage and unwanted headaches in solving technical difficulties, especially those spent on removing paper jams.
Designed in line with low end printers, the SP 112 series is one of the slimmest printers in the market that is small, lightweight, and portable, making it mobile and flexible for its users, all while it maintains its versatility and reliability. This is reflected in the SP 112 series’ ability to feature an Energy Saver Mode, a manual duplex printing option, and an all-in-one toner cartridge function which in fact, collectively contributes to a low start-up and maintenance cost.
Further to its enhancement, the SP 112 series sees an improved Automatic Document Feeder (AFD) speed as well as an increased print speed of 16ppm (from its previous speed of 13ppm). With one push of a button, its ID copy function is capable of producing multiple copies with good copy image quality handling that is supported by various paper sizes, including A6, A5, Half-Letter (HLT) and A4 sized papers. Additionally, the SP 112SF model with built in fax functions enables up to 100 speed dials with its brand new noticeably fast fax function armed with the speed compatibility of a Super G3 (33.6Kbps modem speed).
“At Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., we live by our brand tagline “imagine. change.” whereby we constantly strive to achieve technological breakthroughs through unleashing new ways of thinking that will improve lives and catalyse society advancement. We are passionate and committed to helping our customers embrace these changes through innovation,” said Peter Wee, Chief Operating Officer of Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.
In addition to the introduction of the SP112 series, Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. also introduced its newly refined SP C250 and SP C252 series, a full colour laser and multifunction printer with a compact footprint, ideal not only for small offices and home offices, but for the SMB and vertical industry players as well.
Perfectly packaged with this improved product comes a great economical and versatile colour printer built for reliable and efficient productivity that lowers total cost of ownership with its Economy Colour mode, long-life components, and an impressive duty of 30,000 pages per month for the SP 250 series, and 65,000 pages per month for the SP 252 series, ensuring peak volumes are matched. Donning a new slick design, the eco compliant printer with both colour and black and white print output of 20ppm, also highlights state-of-the-art image quality with up to 2,400 x 600dpi resolution. Moreover, its wired and wireless connectivity allows effortless mobile printing from Smart Devices via the Ricoh Smart Print and Scan mobile print app, adding flexibility with wired and wireless connectivity options.
“Companies today can find confidence and assurance in credible business partners to pursue work advancement in order to remain competitive in the business. Ricoh, for example, is able to help companies achieve that by being a total office, IT and business solutions provider,” said Mr. Wee.
“It is our mission and obligation to society to enhance user experience, as well as to increase workflow and productivity through our products and services. We do so by understanding and forecasting the current and future needs of our consumers. The SP 112 and SP C250 series are sheer examples of how we cater to their needs through innovation and imagination, transcending the current products and services we offer with better ones that will take our clients to further heights,” added Mr. Wee.
