Ricoh Australia says its new range of Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printers will enable users to rapidly produce high-quality applications on a variety of fabrics.

“We continue to invest in the industrial print market’: Simon Lane, Ricoh Australia.

“These new DTG printers enable printers to meet the needs of customers by delivering the high-quality output that comes as a result of the combination of Ricoh innovation and engineering,” says Simon Lane, country manager, commercial & industrial printing solutions, Ricoh Australia. “As businesses of all sizes grapple with the impact of digital disruption, we continue to invest in the industrial print market and make it easier for our customers to grow, improve, modernise and advance their businesses.”

 The Ri 100 entry-level all-in-one printer combines high-quality output at an affordable price and is designed for those with low-volume printing needs such as schools, small businesses, sports clubs and charity or promotional organisations. The DTG devices allow a business to produce on-demand promotional and personalised items such as light coloured T-shirts, cloth bags and sweatshirts on a wide range of blended materials with 50 per cent cotton or more.

The Ri 100 incorporates Ricoh piezo-electric inkjet technology to deliver high-quality prints. The integrated variable drop size technology enables printing of detailed designs and photographs with smooth gradations at 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution.

The new Ricoh DTG range also includes the Ricoh Ri 3000 and Ri 6000 printers, designed to meet the needs of established garment-printing businesses. Both can print a wide range of materials from 100 per cent cotton and 100 per cent light polyester to mixed cotton fabrics with up to 50/50 blends.

Both units incorporate Ricoh’s piezo-electric printhead technology and include maintenance features such as an automatic ink circulation system for white channels that improves ink flow and increases performance. Print workflows are managed with a 18cm, touch-enabled operation panel. Ricoh’s closed-loop delivery system also reduces ink waste.

    Nothing on Ricoh’s Australian website about garment printers. Need to go to – Search for ‘Garment’ and second result states ‘Ricoh to Acquire AnaJet, a Leader in Direct to Garment Printers’. So that’s what you’re getting.
