This Week in the Copier/Office Equipment Industry 10 Years Ago Second Week of June 2005

Ten years ago Ricoh released the IS760 & IS 760D scanners.  These scanners had a terrific speed, and they also had a platen glass.  Back then I thought that some manufacturer would release a high speed scan station with scan2email, scan2folder, scan2print and TWAIN driver.   


Ten years later and Ricoh is effectively out of the scanner business, and no manufacturer has yet to step forward with the scan station with the features I described in the previous paragraph.

          I've been in copier biz since 1985 have seen LOTS of copiers come and go, some terrible (somebody mentioned the Ricoh 5560 the other day) some great (1022/1027,1015,2018,/551/700/1060/1075/2060/2075). ALL the new equipment is a billion times better than

Canon IR C3220...just kidding.  I have found the 2238 series to be very good.  Even better copy quality from the glass than the Canon.

          Any Canon folks out there? Is the IR6000 still a new product or is it discontinued? What about service and selling price for a school type account? Thanks for any help. John

          I doubt it directly from Ricoh.  Most Hard Drive manufacturers cover the hard drive anywhere from 1 to 3 years.  You have to go directly to them for that.  I did years ago when a hard drive failed on an AF450.  It depends on the manufacture and if it was

          The IS100, IS200, and IS300e can be connected to the any of the Ricoh printers. The 300e is the usual choice for the CL7XXX because it can do 11X17 but any of them will work.

scan to file lights up - set for C://desktop/ABC then CLICK APPLY. Open a new set in scantool, and scan a 36 x 24 document. 1. Does it appear on your screen correctly? 2. Does the TIFF / PDF image appear back in the folder ABC on the desktop? IF YES, GREAT
