BR Printers Delivers Short-Run Book Applications with Ricoh InfoPrint 5000

InfoPrint Solutions’ Infoprint 5000 continuous (webfed) printing system is based on the piezo-electric, drop-on-demand ink-jet engine used by Screen (USA) in its Truepress Jet520 product. It uses water-based pigment inks to print a 20.4? maximum web width at a 720x360 dpi resolution and runs at speeds up to 420 fpm, equivalent to 100,000 iph (8-1/2 x 11").

The company has added support for its new AFP Color Management Architecture with an eye toward transpromo printing applications.
