KIP 800's are doing great!!! Every single customer that has demoed it has ordered one. We have installed 6 and all are running great with no issue, we another 12 on order. Only bad part is it is taking weeks to get them. We may never place a "new" monochrome machine again.
We are getting $.03 per sq ft. That is less than the monochrome machines, this is why I don't see us placing anymore new monochrome machines. We will place some refurbished ones to the customers that have to go low budget. Not only that it blows the Oce Colorwave away. We have a customer who makes these 20 ft full color GIS aerials that cost him $21.00 each to run on the Oce (his numbers not ours) we ran them on the KIP at a cost of $1.76.

One of my large medical accounts contacted me about this one. They were totally freaked out over this potential threat even though they had no machines in their fleet with the vulnerability. Meanwhile you could walk to almost any fax machine in any of their locations and grab patient info from the fax trays.
packaging, floor and wall coverings as well as textiles. Now these are mostly done using analog methods. This stuff is moving to digital look at the digital printing devices coming from HP, efi, and a bunch of people that were not part of the group selling printers to offices.
Wow the OKI wide formats! Haven't run across any of these yet. I do remember that Oki bought a minor wide format player a number of years ago. Ah, now I remember, it was the Seiko wide format devices. I need to brush up on this one for you. The first thing I would lead with is how long Ricoh has had the same digital print engine. I believe it to be one of the most reliable engines on the market today. The Ricoh MP W6700 and MP 7100 are identical except that you can add a dual roll feeder to...
So, the Oki or Teriostar 1040 is one page per minute faster than the Ricoh. Oki wants the user to replace the corona wire cartridge and the process cartridge. I believe the process cartridge is the drum. Now, the memories come back, if an end user scratches that drum, it's on the user to replace the drum which is going to be a very pricey item. If I was a business owner I would not want my peeps handling a part that has a cost of $1,500-$2,000. If they scratch it, it's on me to buy another,...
I don't think you're going out on a limb, talk is they want to challenge the likes of Ricoh, Canon, Global and KM for dealers as a sole source line and not a secondary line. Was in Office Max today and saw four new products from Sammy on the low end, what out HP, Brother an Epson!
Hi Art, I agree. Ricoh needs an entry level 4 D/min system. I have always thought Ricoh should take thier gel sprinter technology and develop a plotter around it, instead they rely on Epson to fill this void. They seem ready to concede the 4 d market to Oce, Kip and the plotter cometitors. I wonder if it is the aftermarket that drives the decision. With a 4 D-Size per minute you are generating less clicks and less aftermarket revenue. Perhaps they want use limited dollars to develope higher...
Aficio Brand Aficio® comes from the Latin root "afficio" which reflects Ricoh's creative concept and commitment to total customer satisfaction. Afficio embraces the meanings "manage", "handles", "move" and "influence".
WEEKEND MFP INDUSTRY NOTES 8-5-07 The following is a quick review of copier/MFP industry news from industry publications. - The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it is legal for manufacturers to create a mandatory minimum selling price for their product. The case was decided regarding a store that sold women’s clothing, that ran afoul of the clothing manufacturer’s rules. Unknown if any copier manufacturers will adopt this policy. - A group in Australia at Queensland University, is claiming that...
Great to hear good things happening with Ricoh Production equipment. It's interesting to hear 13 x 25" paper?? Magnetics? No doubt the image quality is very good. We have several C651/C751's out and this year could include several more!
for me this is very interesting, JIVE is a web based platform. I believe Classmates.com uses the Jive platform. When I was considering new platforms fo the p4p a few years ago I reached out to Jive. Jive is pretty much for the big boys. It seems Ricoh will partner with Jive for selling overall MDS solutions to it's customers. I like this.... and I think that building the social media space for companies can be an untapped resource for sales. More to follow on this in a featured blog
There is friction feed with air separation on all the current production machines. So they have rollers that actually feed the paper and there are fans that blow the paper apart to help prevent multifeeding and it also helps if the paper sticks together and won't pull out of the tray.
I feel bad that someone with a wealth of experience is out on the street looking for work, but if his shoe-horning of keywords (Jim Ivy from Ricoh) into this press release is an example of his marketing expertise, he will probably be looking for quite some time.
I notice that also when I read the press release. I'm thinking he wants back in the industry just because of some of the connections I've seen happening on linkedin. Winder how Ricoh likes the press releases especially with his sorted past
He must be trying to flood search engines with pages to bury his past as a convicted pedophile in the latter pages of searches, but it's not like a lot of people are out there searching for Jim Ivy of Ricoh. It's kind of funny what you can find if you do, though: http://jimivyricoh.wordpress.c...o-be-a-board-member/ At some point, Ricoh has to intervene and stop him from associating himself with them.
I'm not sure if Ricoh can do anything with the name association, just like someone can't tell me that I can't write about previous companies I worked for. What will get him is the background check, you can't get away from that. In hindsight I probably should have never posted that release. I originally thought it was a Ricoh press release, I should have left well enough one and let him fade away.
You mean Batelli resigned? I sure wish they would get someone in there that was worth a damn. Previously Linda Allen and then Batelli. I am sure the Plotworks thing didn't have anything to do with it. J.
I hope Ricoh can bring back the magic they had when Linda ran the division. Plotworks has been a great product with great support once you learn the capabilities. It is an excellent PlotBase replacement product. I cannot think of a better time to be selling Wide Format- here in the SE, industry is back on it's feet and growing.
Maxima1 Agreed about the production thing with wide format. But dude you're less than stellar at returning calls, and if you're referring to me digging for information for a blog, well, you're way off base. Plus how can you make that statement, if you don't call the person back to find out what they need? It's not only me, I've spoken to others and we all agreed you were not that good when it came to call backs. Now, this doesn't mean I don't like you, I do like you, but dude you gotta call...
You were atrocious at returning phone calls. And for you to state that you returned calls in a timely manner that you deemed important takes the cake and proves the point. Additionally, the sales reps in the field who religiously continue to sell the wide format product are the reason for any continued success in that area of Ricoh's product line. With the mandatory increase in price and a stale product lineup most days it is a difficult exercise.
I wish everyone that is selling wide format in Ricoh continued success. I know it is a tough endeavor and will continue to be considering the internal shift towards color and support for direct. If you required better support, I hope you receive it in the future. Good Luck.
