Premiering at this year’s Graph Expo on 25th September, was Riso’s ComColor GD Series of Professional Inkjet: a full-colour, cut sheet inkjet printer (A4, single side short edge), that delivers prints at speeds up to 160ppm.
 The machine, scheduled for launch in early 2017, comes with an embedded GDI, or 2 optional RIP. The embedded optional true Adobe PostScript RIP supports Mac/Linux, PDF direct printing, and remote printing from most mobile devices.
The optional production RIP, the ComColorExpress FS2000C, is equipped with a Fiery digital front end developed by EFI. This image processor maximizes the ComColor GD series to meet the demands of variable data printing operations that are vital for Direct Mail or Transaction printing, and delivers data processing to large-volume, complex document data. Newly formulated ink offers high density black and vibrant colours. The ComColor GD Series can handle a range of paper/card stock and envelopes from 3”x 5” to 11”x17” with weights ranging from 46gsm to 210gsm (12-lb bond to 56-lb bond) says the manufacturer.
Riso also showcased a new line of business inkjet printers called the FW Series, and a freshly launched digital duplicator line called the RISO SF Series.
