Blacksmiths, auto mechanics, typewriter technicians and copier technicians

Italian army still had blacksmiths. They probably needed far more typewriter repair people. Whoops, in those days, there was no political correctness, and far less equality of sexes. They had repairmen, not repair people. And let’s not forget that U.S. Special Forces on horseback in Afghanistan have chased the bad guys in the 21st century. From about 1900 to about 1980 or so, there were more typewriter repair people, and fewer blacksmiths. Somewhere around 1980-1985, typewriters went electronic

HP Losing Market.......

-president of sales and marketing for HP's imaging and printing business, said the company had a particularly strong fourth quarter and said he saw no reason for concern, despite the sequential drop in market share.

The first-quarter figures don't show an impact from Dell Computer, which started selling printers in March. Mr. Morgan said

Re: Canon Feeding 12x18

All their literature says 11x17. I can't imagine that it can, otherwise it would say so. Heck, Ricoh made it a point to specify it. And the only other black & white that I saw with 12x18 in the Better Buys for Business publication was Xerox. All others are 11x17. This could be a nice perk for construction, engineering and other environments that require B&W 12x18 capabilities.

Toner Yields — Let's Get Real:

printer's 5 percent as an "average" toner yield, partly because of the e-mails that are printed. Slawetsky has tested this theory on a limited basis and found it to be close to the truth — for printers. However, the problem for the copier dealer is that people do not run to the copier to make 50 copies of their e-mails. They run to the device to make copies of brochures, PowerPoint and other toner-eating documents. Printer resellers do not get the "copier headache" because a lot of their sales are

Re: Need Answer ASAP on 1055 Printer Kit

Ricoh has instituted printer kits for some of the existing models to make ordering easier for the dealer and themsleves. "kits" include nic, memory and printer controller.

Does anyone know if the Ricoh CL 7000 will differentiate between black and color in mixed jobs? Will the color drums drop rotation when a black page is printed in a combination color/black print job? Does the drum wear from rotation or from being written?

I had a 1224C S/P sale nixed by the service dept because the guy wants to do 100 or so T-Shirt Transfers a month on his machine. They nixed it because "Ricoh does not support coated stock and T-shirt Transfers are coated" I'd love to hear you guy's take on the subject.

UNIX question from the League

Has anyone encountered problems with Printing applications from UNIX to the 1060/1075. I have a customer who is printing duplexed invoices, about 3,000 at a time, and about halfway thru 6 to 10 of them will print backwards, then they will correct themselves and print the correct way. I believe it is in the program itself, but the customer needs to make sure it is not a problem on our end. The system is also loaded with Memory Thanks

Re: Need Answer ASAP on 1055 Printer Kit

Mike, I think you're going to get "burned" again. If the 1055 printer "kit" truly included nic and memory, then why is the nic price itemized, as well as the memory? There are no notes stating that the kit includes any of that. The RMAP pricing notes is always the place I go to for answers like that. No mention whatsoever. I think we should post this question on Aficio League, and see what kind of answer we get from Dave Callahan.

Essentially, they increased the speed of the agitation roller revolution by 1.5 times which changes the toner distribution and charge properties.

I am going to assume NO because the CL7000, like the 3800C slows down to 28ppm for the rest of the job as soon as it hits a color page and remains at that speed unlike the 1224/32.

Maybe the CL7000 can do it. They say they can now do coated or glossy stock on that machine. I am attaching the paper sotck recommendations from Ricoh on the CL7000.

Re: T-Shirt Transfers

The whole coated stock thing has gotten crazy. When they were introduced we were told the 24/32's would do coated stock. It was emphisized in fact! Now we find out that Ricoh Japan supports it for coated, but Ricoh USA does not! Are they going to pull the rug out from under us with the 7000's too?? Tyler

crossover value becomes truly apparent, delivering the printability and appearance expected of a #2 grade paper. At the light basis weight end, Influence is the perfect choice for lightweight catalog and magazine applications that require prime print gloss and smoothness. The consistent quality and number of choices throughout Influence's weight range is testimony to International Paper's commitment to all basis weights in the #3 category.
