Ricoh Launches Range of Mono Production Pro 8300S Series Multifunction Printers
SYDNEY – 14 August 2019 – Ricoh, a leading provider of smart workplace technology, has announced the availability in Australia of its Ricoh Pro 8300S series of sheet fed press multifunction printers.
Ideal for print shops, corporate reprographics departments (CRDs), commercial printers, offices and schools, users can now enjoy greater mono production flexibility and capability.
Available in three versions, the series replaces the Ricoh Pro 8200S mono platform. They comprise two higher speed production models that run at 111ppm and 136ppm, aimed at CRDs, print shops and commercial printers, and a smaller footprint 96ppm solution designed for businesses, public sector agency departments and schools.
The fastest Pro 8320S model produces up to 136 prints per minute and delivers an increased monthly duty cycle (maximum monthly volume at rated speed) of up to one million, and features a new finisher capable of 30 sheet booklet production at 80gsm and a new cover interposer with air assist supporting coated media up to 350gsm. It also has dual shift trays with a 4500 sheet stack capacity to maximise productivity as well as trimming, and long sheet handling peripherals designed to support versatile green button production.
The combination of these new options expand application opportunities for books, brochures and manuals. All these same features are available in the Pro 8310S multi-function printer which produces up to 111 prints per minute. The more compact Pro 8300S press incorporates a small finisher or a shift sort output tray ideally suited to production environments with limited space.
All three versions use Ricoh VCSEL technology at 2400 x 4800dpi to deliver high quality print output. They also both feature a 17 inch touch screen colour panel for fast and easy set-up. The panel screen can be accessed on a tablet enabling remote operation. It also shows the EFI controller interface, eliminating the need for a dedicated display.
Key features include:
- Continuous productivity
Designed for continuous production, even when replenishing toner or paper
- Do it yourself

- Mix black and white with colour
