Ravi Ram, managing director of God Studio, said the company has been in the region’s commercial printing market for the last 19 years. “However, when we started facing some troubles in maintaining print quality and flexibility in colours, we desperately searched for an upgraded machine to move ahead of conventional CMYK printing. We continuously enquired and checked with several vendors, but our ultimate choice fell to the Ricoh Pro C7500,” he said.

He added, “We visited expos and went to a client’s facility where Ricoh Pro C7500 was running productively to experience the machine’s capacity and capability firsthand. We were impressed with the quality of print outputs, production capacity, colour gamut and many other advanced features of the digital colour production press. This Ricoh press is ideally engineered to go beyond the usual CMYK printing when it comes to getting into innovations revolving around the colours and textures for special print applications.”

Robust and powerful, Ricoh Pro C7500 boasts many advanced features, among which is its fifth colour station that stimulates white toner, clear, gold, silver, invisible red toner and special neon colours for adding extra elements to graphic prints. “After all, we are proud of being the first to install the upgraded press in Coimbatore, offering innovative print graphics any other commercial printers in the region could never offer,” Ravi said.

The Ricoh Pro C7500, upgraded from its popular predecessor Ricoh Pro C7200x, was introduced in India by Monotech Systems last year. It can operate at the speed of 85-ppm, delivering graphic prints in the industry’s leading resolution of 2,400×4,800-dpi, produced on varied media ranging from 40- to 470-gsm. “We would say that Ricoh Pro C7500 has become our new strength. Following the installation of the press, our production volume has increased to tenfold,” Ravi said.

He added, “Our customers are satisfied with the clarity and colour accuracy in prints we produced on the Ricoh Pro C7500. It was beyond everyone’s expectations. Some key applications which we produce using this advanced and flexible digital colour production press with a fifth colour station include labels, tags, packaging boxes, and many others including prototypes as well as short-run print productions.”

Ravi concluded that the Ricoh Pro C7500 has given the company a big boost to their overall tasks of printing and production of customised marketing products for businesses of any size for customers from different sectors.
