Also, if the camera is able to pull up thumbnails of all of the pictures on it's own screen, will the copier also be able to do the same?

I have placed some IS300e with CL7200 systems. But it has been awhile since I did that. The quality will not stand up to the new MP-C serics. You can't add fax. You don't have the same touch screen.

Printing Catia files out of VPM

Wallin Team ·
I have a customer who prints their Catia files out of a VPM database (which I believe is an IBM product made to work with Catia). They are not able to print and they get an error code (139) that comes from VPM. They can print the native files out of Catia, just not from VPM which is the way they will print most often. Anyone know anything that might help? Thanks.

The finisher is in the upper area of the inside of the device. It will staple 30 pages but has no offset sort, only standard sorting. The cost per page is .012007 That is the dealer cost for service and supplies. Probably mark up to .02 You don't add individual components, you order the unit preconfigured. The XS model has all the bells and whistles. A Ricoh 3030sp is competetive with the XS version. You'll get it on the CPP. FYI Does have quite a long warmup period. The scanning is nifty yet

Also with 1:2 duplex you have to flip every other original or copy. Npt sure about the IS300e, maybe it will 1:2 properly.

Bottom line, The copier manufacturers are in the business of manufacturing copiers. Dealers are in the business of selling copiers. Mfgs panic anytime they see their inventory exceed certain levels and do all they can to continue manufacturing at consistant levels. When inventory exceeds preset levels, what do they do? they seek other methods of distribution to move equipment. Look at car manufacturing in the US, they will offer all kinds of incentives to their current dealers to move machines

ease of use: medium FCOT: Slow Copy Quality: Acceptable The only place I saw this config was at Ricoh Corp in NJ. I am going on memory, however I was not impressed with the FCOT. But then you are scanning from one piece of hardware and printing on another, it should be slower than an MFP.

I agree. How about a color multifunctional wide format system using the gelsprinter technology? Come on Ricoh!! You have the technology. Just stop giving it away to other manufacturers. Just a rant here but did they trade the 3131 with Toshiba for the MP 9000-1350 series? If so, you got old technology and gave away our high volume edge. Or how about IBM getting it too. Give us the wide format we need. We sold the 240W for you and made that product #1. Let us do it again with the right product

Some research results...Duplex is $483. Fax is $348. 128MB of memory is $549. Ethernet is $389. What about finishing? Under copy specs it says staple collate but there is no stapler option however there is a staple cartridge listed under supplies. Is it standard and somehow imbedded in the mainframe? Toner is $170 but what is the yield? 4349 maintenance Kits and a $99 ADF maintenance kit has to be considered but again, don't know what the estimated life of these are.

In my previous report about the reduction of 400 billion printed pages globally was a little shocking when I saw the numbers (12%) .  From 2015-2019 IDC reported an annual decrease of 1.2% annually for printed pages from office and home devices. Thus I'm taking that the COVID19 was 11%. IDC states that 6 million pages were printed globally every minute in 2019. Let' understand the numbers.

Everything that's printed out of the machine has a light haziness to the white areas. This is true for copies, prints from autocad and windows test pages.

When a new roll is inserted, the first copy of a set is always missing about an inch or so. If another set is sent, the first one may come out correctly or it may not, its hit and miss. But if I were to unload the paper, and then print again, the odds that the first one out will be an inch or so short is good bet. It only seems to do it on a new roll, so I think that the weight of the roll is a factor. At one time I think there was a toner/developer spill in the machine. The tech that worked on

240W...trailing edge of drawing missing on print but not in viewer

BigMac (Guest) ·
A client sent an image to Plotbase from AutoCad via the HDI Driver and via WinPrint. It would print correctly on an HP Printer. We could view the entire image "correctly and completely" in the Plotbase viewer. However, regardless of where we printed the image on a sheet OR how large the image was on the sheet OR where the image was placed on the sheet OR whether the margin sizes were changed in AutoCad OR whether we rotate the image, the tail edge of the image was being cut off.

If the pages are legal size or if they have alot of print or especially is they have pictures, then the memory can be used up alot faster.

That's a good point, and makes me realize I misread the question. I read "is the .CPC extension supported" but you asked "can these files be printed". The answer will be, of course they can be printed... As long as your customer has a Windows-Based program that can open the file. You can then just use the windows print driver to sent the print. You will not be able to submit them with Plotclient, or have Plotbase understand them natively, but once they pass thru the driver, it should work fine

Also, make sure it calibrated for copying and for printing only. There's strecthc factors for the typical scanning stretch that occurs during scanning, which is factored out for the print only stretch calibration.

It is the GelSprinter technology so if you have seen that, I'm guessing you have seen this. If it is the same as the GelSprinter printers, it is pretty good but of course that only answers print quality, not copy quality. I have one on order but haven't seen it yet.

DWG Option

Wallin Team ·
Does anyone know if the DWG Option has any kind of viewing capability or just printing? Is there any kind of DWG viewer that comes with the software? Are you able to see small images at the bottom of screen prior to sending to print. (This is possible with TIF and PLT files in PCWin.)

Tab Stock

Gunner (Guest) ·
Hi everyone- For some reason I am having serious issues running tabs through a 2060. I have everything set up correctly (designate sheet, tab stock, shifting 0.6). It will run about 3-4 tabs and then jam in E. Can anyone give me any input as to what I am missing, if anything? Does the brand of the tab stock matter? I know that Ricoh recommendeds the BLANKS, but would it make that big of a difference? Thanks, Melissa

This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago

Last Week of July 2006

I'm writing this on the eve of the last selling day of the month for July.  There's a chance I can get a $67K order tomorrow and I'm waiting on a signature.  That would make July a decent month, if not I'm in hole for the third quarter of the year.

Enjoy these great copier threads from 15 years ago this week!

Ricoh 4420nf + Fax forward to email

Jomama (Guest) ·
I am not clear on how to set this on this fax machine. I have seen a write up for a copier but in reading the op man for this fax, it sort of indicates I will need SR Pro, whereas the copier (B089) doesnt require it. This customer only want one email destination to receive the faxes. Can anybody give me some guidance on this?

I picked up a service customer with a Minolta Di750 and they want to add printing on their network. I need the Printer Controler Option and NIC Card, not sure of the part numbers. I checked with Greater Philly and a few others and had no luck. Is there anyone who would have one for sale?

Network speed Ricoh 1013

mikefio22 (Guest) ·
I just installed a Ricoh 1013 but the orange light on the MFp was not coming on. Last time this happened to me, it was a network speed issue which I was able to resolve. But on this machine, I am unable to figure out how/where to change the speed (auto select; 10Mbps; 100Mbps) Does any know? the MFP is saying its running at 100Mbps. I am tryin to get it to auto select or if that doesnt work, to 10Mbps. Thank for any help you can give.

Re: Xerox and their single click Ledger

We did get the deal. Merlin, you are right. It goes back to this just being a tactic used to lock out the competition. When we asked questions about how often they do this, etc... it wasn't really an issue at all. We just minimized it. I understand that our machines are capable of clicking once for 11 x 17, but that's not really what we want. Also, we can point out that in order for you to receive the proper preventative maintenance we need to know exactly what the quantity of prints are

I deal with QuarkXpress every week, there's nothing inherent to the program that would make it print slowly. Generally QuarkXpress is used with complex graphics, do you know the size of the file you are sending? It could just be that the file is very large with complex graphics. If it isn't large, have you tried sending normal files to the printer from the same workstations? are they faster?

Re: Xerox and their single click Ledger

Some more thought. If you are in a print for pay you will have a tough sell. But if you in others accounts, there is not many I go into that will use 11x17 in color, let alone be able to do 2-up and CUT. This is just a way to confused the customer.

Re: New Poll, MFPSPI Series from Ricoh

·
I would prefer that the software -- ANY third-party title-- NOT be bundled with the hardware. My sales reps would prefer to be able to configure the software proposal the way the client needs it instead of having to offer it a certain way because it comes preconfigured that way. And speaking with my Purchasing manager hat on, too many preconfigured options is needlessly confusing (the CL7000/CL7100, for a prime example).

Has anyone ran into QuarkXPress 4.1? It is a program that some news papers use. I connected a MLP28N on their network and it is taking 35-45 seconds for the first print to come out. Just curious if anyone ever ran into this and if their was a way to make it faster
