This Week in the Copier in Industry, Third Week of November 2003

 

My sales month ended today, thus allowing time for our beloved bean counters the chance to close the month on the calendar end of month.   don't mind and I'm kind of use to it. I figure that closing the month early gives me two end of the month chances to close some orders.  Of course one is our actual close and the other is calendar end of month.  December this year is a little frightening since Christmas falls on a Tuesday.  Which means most will not be working on the 24th.  Thus December only gives me 19 selling days compared to the average month that has 22 selling days. It's GO time!

Enjoy these threads from 15 years ago this week!

"The volume of copies being made is flat," says IDC analyst Riley McNulty, "but the volume that's printed is increasing, which is why copy machine makers have added printing capabilities." It would be a stretch to call this a defensive move on the part of HP, but the computer and printer giant is certainly responding to

-P (HPQ: news, chart, profile) controls about 1.5 percent of the copier market right now, mostly from sales of all-in-one devices that serve as printers and scanners, as well as copiers. But by also selling higher-end copiers that range in price from $18,000 to more than $37,000, Joshi says the company plans to control at least 10 percent of the copier market by the end of 2006.

The new copiers, which will range from $18,000 to more than $37,000, are aimed at stealing high-end corporate customers from Xerox (nyse: XRX - news - people ), Canon (nyse: CAJ - news - people ) and Ricoh.

If you use Savin, Gestetner or Lanier RPCS drivers on a Ricoh device the accessories/paper trays will not be automatically configured even with a SmartNet port. The problem is in the 'Plug And Play" name in the SP Mode. If it is Ricoh in 'Plug And Play Name" and the driver is Savin it will not communicate correctly with the driver.

Re: AP400 vs. AP2610

Mu understanding is that the IS100e will work with any printer that has a parallel printing capability. The claim to fame of the IS100e is that it connects to the parallel port of the CL 3000 and CL 5000, well it should work with the 3800, 3850, 7000 and all of the others. The IS 100e is not OEM'd by Ricoh, I have seen it distributed by IBM, OKI and Panasonic. I'm not sure who the real OEM is. Art

I did send the job from MSWORD to print the envelopes from the bypass and all went well. Try it, it'll work, if the machine tells you to change the paper size in the bypass, then you will know for sure. BUT I DO KNOW FOR A CERTAINTY, the envelopes printed great without any

My only input is that I have never been able to consistantly get envelopes to print from a copier very well. Regardles of how it is spec'd out, I always tell my customers that it is in their best interest to make sure that they print envelopes from a regular printer and not their copier. I do have a handful who print envelopes from the copier (including 1224-32 series systems, but they deal with the occasional jams etc and understand it) Hope that helps! Graham

I don't have my demo machine anymore, sold it, we were printing 5.5" x 8.5" heavy stock and had the bypass set for this ... I am not sure now if I had to change the paper size at the copy machine for the bypass, I do know that I sent the job from MS WORD, both from Tools/Envelopes and Labels and by creating an envelope size document (so I could add color graphics to my envelope) and they printed out without a problem.
