This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The Last Week of February 2003

 

Each week I'll scan the threads and look for something interesting and or something unique.  This week marks the 15th anniversary for Old Glory as an excellent Print4Pay Hotel member.  Jim and I have met several times over the years and I'm thankful that he is such a great supporter and a friend of mine. 

In addition Jim just sent me a copy of  Minella's Pocket Guide to copiers for 1990.  Thus a special shout out to you!!

Enjoy the threads from fifteen years ago this week!

Re: Risograph rp3500 info?

I know it's a little late, but I've been pretty busy lately. The RP3500 is a 400DPI unit with an embedded GDI controller and Network card. Best unit to go up against this is the Gestetner 5455 (whatever the Ricoh equiv is). This unit is one of the best at feeding NCR stock reliably and with the smallest registration shift. The controller issue is a little more complex. If a parallel connection is all that is neede, lead with the UC5e. If low end network solution is neede, go with the UC5 and

Vendors such as IBM, OCE, and Xerox are dearly oriented toward this kind of back-office work. With personalization
