Ricoh Europe, London, 23 March 2017 – Ricoh’s Pro™ L4100 Series is the first latex system to achieve global Color-Logic™ certification. It will be demonstrated at FESPA 2017 in Hamburg from 8 to 12 May.
The Ricoh Pro L4100, combined with the ColorGATE Productionserver software, is now certified for use with the Color-Logic process, a global standard in metallic and decorative effect colour communications for a variety of special effect printing applications. Color-Logic’s decorative effects use existing workflows to achieve dynamic results without the use of special equipment. Its simple print production process enables print service providers to provide brand owners, product managers, corporations, and their advertising agencies with the ability to differentiate.
The Ricoh Pro L4100 Series, with Ricoh’s own non-solvent based aqueous resin inks, features the latest generation of Ricoh’s piezo variable drop print heads. These can deliver latex ink droplets as small as four picolitres. It can run metallic and transparent vinyl, PET films, backlit display media and polyester substrates.
“The engine did a great job of reproducing all Color-Logic’s decorative effects and 250 metallic colours,” states, Richard Ainge, Chief Technology Officer for Color-Logic. “The samples received were printed on KernowJET Gloss Silver 119gsm substrate. The benefit of Ricoh’s latex engine, combined with the dramatic effects created by Color-Logic’s software, will create new revenue opportunities for Ricoh’s print service providers and their clients.”
Benoit Chatelard, Vice President, Production Printing, Ricoh Europe, says: “With the Color-Logic certification we can open new worlds of applications. With improved latex possibilities and expanded media options, including metallic, we can enable clients in the label, packaging, commercial print, POS and signage markets, or from industrial sectors such as screen printing companies, to create impactful results. This will help set them apart from the competition.”
Print service providers using RIP technology other than ColorGate should check with their local Ricoh office for further details on how to utilise the Color-Logic solution and the Ricoh Pro L4100 series.
Color-Logic certification was also awarded to the Ricoh Pro™ C7100 Series with the EFI Fiery RIP and white and clear toner in 2015.
