    Ricoh 7200 paper catalog setup trouble

    Hello, We just purchased one of the Ricoh 7200 after hearing so many good things on it and right off the bat we started having issues with image placement and registration on the sheet. They have narrowed it down to our paper catalog that evidently did not transfer properly from an older...

    Splatter/reactive target printing

    Thanks for the replies Yes I have seen the DIY version with spray paint which would work fine for a few targets we are actually wanting to try and mass produce them and I am sure there is a way to print them on the press. It is not the same as the scratch off at least the stuff we have used...

    Splatter/reactive target printing

    I am trying to figure out how to print reactive targets. For those of you who don't know they are basically shooting targets where there is a brightly colored ink below a black overprint where the black overprint is not really stuck that well so when they are hit it flakes off in that area.

    Ricoh killed my service contract during covid-19 now looking for advice on black and white machines.

    No they did not offer an updated click which is what I usually get from other vendors. I had an Igen at one point that they doubled the click on me at one point and I did not know until I got the next bill which was a BIG surprise. In the cancellation letter they wrote they state the...

    Ricoh killed my service contract during covid-19 now looking for advice on black and white machines.

    Thanks for the suggestions yes I think the versafire machines are just re-branded Ricoh's at least they look exactly the same but I suppose the service would be different so that would be a plus. It looks like Pacific Office Automation only services the west coast but someone like them might be...

    Ricoh killed my service contract during covid-19 now looking for advice on black and white machines.

    Among everything else I have to worry about at the moment it looks like I will be forced to do something with our black and white digital machines? I have 5 Ricoh EX150's or known as digi's that we put roughly 1.9m clicks on a month during normal times. Ricoh gave me 30 days on our service...

    CTP affordable recommendations

    TSchreur from what I have been told your 60mw laser should work fine but do some testing and let us know. Unfortunately, I have the 5mw which I understand is useless.

    CTP affordable recommendations

    I currently have a Heidelberg prosetter that is a little over 10 years old. I was just informed they are stopping production on the violet silver plates we use. They are telling me if we had over a 5mw laser we could keep using the prosetter with a different plate unfortunately I believe that...

    Downsizing from and Igen 4 to KM 1100 Ricoh 9110??

    We currently run an Igen 4 and for the most part we are happy with it. We do have issues with it picking on occasion and it of course goes down occasionally like any other machine. Xerox has continued to raise our clicks to a very high level and I am wondering if one of the smaller machines...
