Ricoh will showcase the breadth of possibilities at FESPA Berlin

Ricoh demonstrates application versatility at FESPA.

From custom wall boards, banners and cut outs to T-shirts, hats and bags, Print Service Providers (PSPs) will experience the breadth of possibilities Ricoh’s creative portfolio delivers at FESPA 2018, May 15 to 18, Messe Berlin, Hall 3.1 stand A50.

Inspiring real-life applications will demonstrate new worlds of business building opportunities that the Sign & Display and décor sectors can offer with Ricoh’s cost efficient and easy to operate systems.

A visitor must-see is Bianchi Corner, a simulation of a typical Bianchi shop where high-end bicycles from the famous Italian performance bicycle company are displayed together with dedicated in-store branding materials. Everything is produced using Ricoh technology including:

• Rigid totems, cut out bike shapes and 2m x 1m and 3m x 2m wall boards, all on 5mm Forex, and bike details on 500mm x 350mm 4mm thick clear Plexiglass, created on a Ricoh Pro™ T7210 UV flatbed printer.
• Roll up and PVC banners, textile flags and vinyl stickers produced on a Ricoh Pro™ L4160 latex wide format printer.
• Hats, T-shirts and bags on Ricoh Ri 100 and Ricoh Ri 6000 direct to garment printers.

The rest of the stand will be transformed with a brightly-coloured jungle theme showcasing the eye-catching and creative results Ricoh technology can deliver. Among the highlights are multiple styles of display unit, all printed on a Pro T7210 using 10mm Falcon Board. The system’s industrial application versatility will also be underlined by all the stand’s graphic wall displays, printed on melamine-covered chipboard.

Printed glass, wood, tile and aluminium will be shown alongside carton board packaging samples too. The creative mix will be enhanced further with Forex guitars from the Pro T7210 and PVC banners produced by the Ricoh Pro L4160 plus jungle themed T-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, and hats created by Ricoh’s flexible direct to garment production systems, the Ri 100, Ri 3000 and Ri 6000.

Graham Kennedy, Head of Commercial Inkjet Business, Commercial and Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe says: “In the vibrant print jungle we want to help PSPs create a clear path to profitability. That is why our continuously evolving and expanding portfolio of innovative systems and solutions assure high quality applications that support any operation’s search for new revenue streams.”
