This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The Second Week in September 2003

 

Haha!  Something pretty funny in with one of the links below. "Moving closer to the paperless office".  This was fifteen years ago.

Do you remember the Ricoh C1224? Was a color MFP that had a speed of 12 pages per minute in color and 24 pages per minute in black.  Needless to say that Ricoh never informed sales that the copier would go into auto calibrate during a print or copy run for up to minutes!  Relive that experience with the threads below

Enjoy the threads from 15 years ago this week.

Xerox also scaled back a business that makes wide-format printers for engineers and architects. That was one reason the company completely vacated two buildings in East Rochester with 170,000 square feet of space. Xerox’s cutbacks also resulted in extra space at company-owned buildings downtown and in Webster and Henrietta. And Farnan said Xerox is spending millions of dollars in Rochester to improve and renovate those sites. Some of the leased space is being vacated to fill the empty offices

Re: Printing to Aficio 650 from AutoCad

Graham, I believe that they would not be able to print directly from autocad unless they converted the files to a .plt extension. I am not sure if the postscript option will allow you to print direct without the file conversion. I have autocad lite 2000 on my laptop and could send you a few .plt files. All you have to do to convert the files to that format is check the plot to file box in autocad when you are printing. It will create a PLT file instead of a DWG file and you should be able to do

You need to make sure that you have the PostScript option installed. You will not be able to print from the DOC server or use anything like scan router, DTB etc. Just remember, all of the applications that come with it are windows based and all you can really do is print and scan to email if their network will support it. You will have to install the accessories manually and then you can use them. Otherwise, that should be the only major thing

So what scanning do you have, just Twain? Also, do you have any job binder type features or not? The network right now is one mac with a color laser printer connected with a USB cable.

Yeah, after cruching some numbers, I thought about moving the CL3000 to the CL 5000 and add duplexing, another paper draw and the finsiher.

You need to go to the P4P sight and do a word search. There have been several discussions regarding Bate Stamping. In a nutshell, the 2090 and the 2105 are the only units with Bate Stamping from Ricoh or anyone else. However, we have successfully sold "Bate Stamping" on lessor units using a compination of User Stamp and Page Numbering. The best way to accomplish this is to get a sample from them and then replicate it it for them on the 2045. Don't try to do it for the first time in their office
