Ricoh unveils newest Direct-to-Garment printer at under US$5000 - the Ri 100
The Ricoh Ri 100 joins the Ricoh Ri 3000/Ri 6000 printers in building upon Ricoh and AnaJet's (a Ricoh company) history of fast, high-quality garment printing. It prints up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi in vivid mode, leveraging Ricoh's industry standard-setting printheads and modular drop-size technology.
Karl Tipre, CEO of AnaJet said that the Ri 100 comes in at a much lower cost than traditional DTG printers at under US$5000.00. He also stated that Ricoh's ink costs are among the lowest in the industry.
the RicohRi 100 is bundled with an intuitive heating system that removes wrinkles from fabric, creating a smooth surface for printing, and then cures the ink after, helping to fix the design in place for long lasting, colorfast prints. The heating unit was designed with simplicity and safety in mind, helping those new to DTG printing easily produce a finished product.
