Why RICOH Pro 5160 is the most unique latex printer ?



Ricoh's second-generation AR Latex Inks are cured and scratch-resistant as soon as they exit the printer, ready for immediate finishing or installation.

It has the lower curing temperature compared to HP Latex Printers.


Print Quality

The Ricoh Pro L5160 can print on both coated and un-coated substrates. Best of all, with its low power consumption, ink usage and ‘right first time’ colour from the ColorGATE and versatility of media – it’s economical in use, even calculating ink cost used per job to help with drilling costs and margins down to accurate levels.


L5160’s kicker is white ink

Yes, white ink on a latex roll printer, what a difference that makes. You can have it configured CMYK x 2 but the addition of white, with appropriate ink re-circulation to keep the heavier pigments in solution, opens up a whole new world of color combinations, back-lit applications and transparent media options. With the wide-gamut CMYK inks plus white, you don’t need Lc, Lm or Lk, the profiling and colour management will deliver a substantial array of colors including fluorescent-look, metallic-look, pastels and vivid reds, greens and blues.

Being the Best for Indoor and Outdoor Applications

Available in CMYK and CMYK plus white configurations, the printers use Ricoh’s own Greenguard-certified latex inks, printed using industrial Ricoh printheads and variable dot technology intended for higher quality and skin tones. They will compete directly with the HP Latex range, as well as all other eco-solvent and solvent printers.
