Ricoh, a Japanese innovative technologies and service offering company has launched Ricoh Ri 2000 Direct to Garment (DTG) printer.
The Ricoh Ri 2000 prints 1200x1200 dpi resolution on a wide range of garments, from traditional t-shirts or tote bags to an extended application range of canvas shoes, baseball caps or long sleeve shirts. It also supports the production of textile face masks and safety vests via the flexibility of the quick-change magnetic platen mechanism and the automatic table height adjustment that easily switches between garment types. .
The Ri 2000 sets a new benchmark in terms of productivity and efficiency in its class. This is achieved by integrating hardware and advanced software end-to-end: enabling colour consistency, automation of production workflows and creation of white layers for printing on dark garments with ColorGate’s Textile Production server; continuously monitoring ink supply, temperature and humidity levels, reducing human interaction whenever required; intuitively guiding the operator with a 7-inch color touchscreen display providing maintenance alerts, for all tasks that are not automated; and simplifying maintenance with automated cleaning and an innovative head cleaning jig that eliminates the need to manually maintain print head nozzles.
