Next-gen continuous feed inkjet

A milestone in the evolution of high speed inkjet technology, the Ricoh Pro VC60000 is built upon our rich heritage of continuous research, development and innovation.

Enabling the new

The Ricoh Pro VC60000 enables a more rapid shift from offset to digital for commercial printers focused on data-driven workflows requiring high-speed inkjet presses, vibrant print quality and media flexibility that includes books, manuals, brochures, personalised collateral, direct marketing and precision marketing.

Precision that delivers

With the Pro VC60000 and VDP, you can print jobs virtually any way you want. Change addresses, content and even images on the fly. Getting a lot of “I need it now!” requests? The Pro VC60000 can take care of those quick-turnaround jobs, all in professional-looking, near-offset image quality.

  1. Want major efficiency gains? Add software
    Automate manual processes that slow down operations, increase errors and raise costs. With one or more of our workflow solutions, you can capture and manage information so it's always accessible to the people who need it, when they need it
  2. Grow with expert guidance and support
    Investing in a new press is a big decision - so let Ricoh’s production print expertise support you every step of the way. Our specialists can help you grow your print volumes and achieve your business goals, both pre, and post-sale
  3. Handle multiple data streams at rated speeds
    Be the commercial printer who says yes to multiple data streams. The Pro VC60000's controller - the TotalFlow Print Server R600A - can handle PDF, PostScript, JDF and Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS), without putting job fidelity at risk
  4. Give every pixel its own special treatment
    Ink, like variable data, has to be put in the right places for the highest quality. The drop-on-demand stainless steel printheads adjust ink drop size dynamically for every pixel. The Pro VC60000 production inkjet system uses only the amount needed, and not a speck more, so you won't waste ink
  5. Turn up the temp to dry jobs quickly
    Depending on the paper and ink coverage, the drying time for certain jobs is tricky. Good thing the Pro VC60000 has climate controls. You can turn on the heat with the optional extended dryer. And don't worry - it's dry heat, so you can send gorgeous jobs out the door, no sweat
