What is on the horizon as far as Production equipment?   Anything would be great.

Original Post

I've seen nothing for at least the next three months, beyond that, well, your guess is as good as mine. I did hear a rumor that we will have an envelope press, which is interesting because when I looked at the future products there was item that I was not familiar with and couldn't find anything on the web. Not saying it's true, but when the rumor comes from a P4P'er it usually is.



Production is partnering with Xante on their Ricoh engined envelope press. I think it uses a SP C831 and the system looks solid.

Rumors have new Color production coming soon.

Okay I have seen some details on paper.  Looks like two new products and two updated series. Very promising looking. Anyone see anything?

Now, in the world of copiers, these boxes are sexy!!!  Canon, KM and Ricoh better wake the heck up.  I can' wait to learn more about these devices.  Do you have any info you can send me?



If Samsung would make these machines faster & keep the price points the same, they could grab market share in a heartbeat.

Some dealers are making huge strides with the current Samsung offering. you're right about the speeds. If dealers are not looking at Samsung right now they should be this will take business from others very quickly

Wow...they also make HP's e-Print.  I wonder if they're doing this to lock other manufacturers from using the technology or to build up valuable licensing revenue.  Despite Samsung's constant battle with Apple (both for market share and in court), Samsung makes chips for a lot of Apple products, so they have no problem taking competitor's money for use of their technology.

Printeron also owns allot of patents for mobile print. I wonder if this was a play for the IP alone.

The only feature Iam disappointed with, is the low speed they have kept. Max 35ppm for colour A3 and 53ppm for B/W A. I was expecting speeds of around 70pp. As for Samsung technology I can say their previous models were already advanced. I come from a 15 years’ experience with Ricoh and found the Samsung machines very interesting and easy to setup with a wide range of options for the users. I look forward to the new models capabilities on which I should be receiving training in about a month or so. Hope to know more and let you know.


heard nothing about those, wish I could be there. Have never been to a graph expo, however, I've heard it's an awesome event.  There's always next year!!

I'm not sure if you're referring to B&W, but there is firmware available on the RFG site for new MP2554/3054/3554/4054/5054/6054 models.  No other info yet.

All I can say is if you can get to Graph Expo this year and visit the Ricoh both they will have some new equipment that will blow the doors off the competition.

Notice came yesterday that there is limited availability of the 2553, 3053 and 3353 and the new models the MP 2554/3054/3554 will launch by early November.

This is quite odd.  The MP2553 series is the newest series in Ricoh's monochrome lineup.  It can be equipped with the Smart Operation Panel & OCR kit, while the MP4002 series & MP6002
Sorry...I accidentally bumped Submit.  The MP4002 & MP6002 series are the monochrome boxes we sell the most of, & I haven't heard any rumors of them being upgraded.  On the same topic, some accounts with the SP5200 A4 systems have leases expiring in the near future, & we have nothing to upgrade them to.  Hopefully Ricoh is updating the MP2553 series so early in order to update the entire monochrome product line in one fell swoop.
The mp2554 series will fill up to the 60 ppm slot.  I believe we will be seeing releases on info as early as tomorrow.  Ricoh is ready for business from what I have seen on paper.  Especially in the production world.
