AMSTELVEEN, Netherlands--()--Ricoh Europe is set to help small and medium sized offices save money and space, with the launch of its new series of compact black & white A4 printers and multifunctionals.

Each product within the series – including the SP 4510DN, SP 4510SF, SP 3600DN, SP 3600SF and SP 3610SF – has an attractive initial purchase price and low Total Cost of Ownership. They have been specifically designed to meet customer requirements for high performance and fit-for-purpose functionality. Thanks to a small footprint, the products can be conveniently installed on a desktop or in an office corner without taking up valuable space. Operation is straightforward via a tiltable 4.3-inch colour touch panel, customisable display and animated menus (SP 4510SF) or an easy-to-use 4-line LCD display (SP 3600DN, SP 4510DN SP 3600SF and SP 3610SF).

These printers and MFPs are equipped with the latest Ricoh controller and based on innovative LED technology which supports 1,200 dpi printing without loss of speed. Paper handling is versatile as they allow printing on paper from 52 to 162 g/m². Documents can also be printed directly from a USB stick or SD card (SP 4510SF), and can be distributed by colour scanning. In addition, the MFPs (SP 4510SF, SP 3600SF and SP 3610SF) offer a variety of fax capabilities.

Designed to efficiently handle office jobs, these printers and MFPs are durable and reliable, easy to use, and fast. The first printout is ready in less than 6.5 seconds and continuous printing is performed at up to 40 pages per minute. The devices are suitable for a high duty cycle (50,000 prints up to 150,000 prints), offer optional WiFi connectivity (all models except SP 3600DN) and are compatible with Ricoh’s @Remote software to monitor performance.

The “toner save” feature helps companies to reduce their operational costs. Running costs are driven down further thanks to the separate PCDU and toner, while replacement is performed separately avoiding any unnecessary costs.

Environmentally conscious, the models are manufactured using recycled and bio-plastic components. Features such as sleep mode and ECO mode reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Power consumption during operation is lowest in class and the use of toner and paper is efficiently managed to save resources.

“The SP 4510DN, SP 4510SF, SP 3600DN, SP 3600SF and SP 3610SF are ideal for cost-conscious offices as they are offered at an affordable purchase price and come equipped with Ricoh’s new Quick Start Up (QSU) fusing system, which reduces Total Electricity Consumption (TEC) values,” says Sylvester de Koning, Senior Product Manager at Ricoh Europe. “In addition, the on/off timer cuts energy consumption and costs, and the high-performance Ricoh GWNX controller leads to further cost/time savings, increased operational efficiency, and ultimately reduced Total Cost of Ownership.”
