Lol. Definitely for niche jobs. I found the clear to be quite tame for a spot UV offering. I think if it had better coverage that would be a better seller. Can hardly see it unless you hold it to a light.
Another shop has the 7200 and I do all their heavy substrate overflow and the quality is grainy compared to my smooth 9110 color. I even found a good way to make gradients look way better on it.
I advised them not to purchase the 7200 and just get the 9200 but that white and clear dazzled...
Problem solved. Gap in pressure and fuser roller widened. We run heavy stocks and that’s a result. There is a bulletin techs have for fix but more than likely need new rollers on both fuser units. Swapped out fusers with another shop and no issues at all.
My tech and I are completely boggled by this issue on my Ricoh 9110. I run 400-500 sheets and the fuser belt rips by moving off the path. It is basically moving towards the operator or front of the machine. We have gone through 4 belts on 2 different fusers. Thought it was the paper but I've...
My buddy that I mentioned would rather have gotten the 9200 and had the speed than the novelty of the 5th color is what he told me. I looked at one but decided on a 9110 that gives me the 750,000 clicks per month I need.
I know another shop with the 7200 and that 5th color spot UV is pretty weak if you ask me. I would get samples and them proceed. They mostly use the 5th for white, which in my opinion is a better option.
I have a 9110 and it is a beast.
Long duty cycle
I run all types of envelopes through it with no issue (not tried windowed)
Fiery is pretty stable
TCRU parts are easy change
Registration can be dodgy (tray alignment helps)
Paper catalog can be a pain at first but...
