Riso has released the company’s latest advance in digital duplicating – the ME9450 Digital Duplicator. This newest model is a fully automatic cut-sheet digital duplicator, producing two-colour documents in a single pass at speeds up to 150 pages per minute. This, said Riso, makes it ideal for high-volume one-colour and two-colour printing.

The ME9450 features advanced workflow capabilities to reduce prepress and make-ready times by up to 50% over many traditional two-colour processes. Automated production processes “result in increased productivity, profitability and cost savings for a variety of printing professionals, end users, graphic artists, teachers, and office managers who require low cost and desire the added impact of spot-colour printed materials.”

The RISO ME9450 combines 150 ppm high-speed two-colour printing with true 600-dpi image quality “produces sharp, clear images of even fine lines and small characters.” Swappable colour cylinders provide over 70 available colours, and the duplicator accommodates a wide range of paper types. A simple, intuitive “Easy 2-Colour” process allows for various methods of colour separation, depending on your need. High-quality two-colour output is possible from a variety of formats including hard copy, electronic file, USB storage, or files already stored in the unit. The Energy Start-compliant system also has no heating elements and “uses one-sixth the power of a toner-based system.”
