RISO Showcases Comcolor X1 Series Printers at Print 13

By: Toni McQuilken

RISO Inc. put the new ComColor X1 Series high-speed, full-color inkjet printers center stage at Print 13 in Chicago last month. A cadre of optional production accessories that make for a number of configurations ideal for any printing operation further supports the ComColor X1 Series. RISO exhibited five different ComColor X1 high-production solutions in its booth.  

“While the speed and quality of the ComColor X1 Series make these printers stand out, it’s the production accessories we’ve specifically engineered for each system that offers the most value add and ROI,” noted Richard Mattina, national director of marketing & business development, RISO. “From feeding to finishing, the RISO ComColor accessories enable each production manager to tailor our offerings to their unique and specific manufacturing needs. Each tool is designed to automate, accelerate, and simplify production tasks to ensure jobs flow to plan.”  

The RISO ComColor Accessories elevate the printers from digital presses to near-complete production departments. From paper feeding, stapling, punching and binding, to multi-functioning finishing, each is engineered to minimize direct labor costs while maximizing productivity. These new optional production accessories include:

High Capacity Feeder: The feeder ensures uninterrupted, unattended, high-volume print runs without frequent pauses for paper reloads.

High Capacity Stacker:  This option allows stacking of larger output volumes, and the stacker cart neatly and easily transports finished prints.

Compact Stapling and Offset Stacking: The Face Down Offset Stapler complies with the print speed of 150 sheets per minute. This option is exclusively for offset stacking and stapling printed output.

Multifunction Finisher II: This finishing option offers stapling of up to 100 sheets, hole punching in various international formats, inward and outward folding, and a feature for booklet making which can automate saddle stitch stapling of up to 60 pages or 15 sheets.

Scanner HS5000: Combined with the auto feeder, users can automate scanning of double-sided originals of up to 100 sheets of paper at a time. Documents can be quickly copied, scanned and stored in PDF, TIFF, and JPEG formats for archiving and job management.  

RISO offers five printers in the X1 Series for varying in-house production needs. Each is engineered to meet specific format, throughput, and production requirements. The ComColor X1 Series printer “50” models offer multiple paper trays for varying output needs on the fly:

ComColor 9150: Offers the highest level of cut-sheet throughput, capable of full-color printing of 150 ppm or 1,000 full-color A4/letter long-edge feed simplex pages in 6.5 minutes. This high-speed printer outputs in sizes up to A3/ Ledger format.

ComColor 7110/7150: Delivers full-color high-speed printing of 120 ppm or 1,000 full-color A4/letter long-edge feed simplex pages in 8.3 minutes. This printer is also compatible with output in sizes up to A3/ Ledger formats.

ComColor 3110/3150: Engineered for small conventional print environments requiring A4/ Legal formatted output, these full-color high-speed printers deliver 90 ppm.
