Ricoh Insights - Overview

Ri 1000

Expanding your business horizons, Ricoh's next generation Direct to Garment printer, the Ri 1000, prints vibrant soft-touch graphics on a wide range of garments and textiles. Versatile and productive, it uses Ricoh’s variable drop size inkjet technology and CMYK + white pigment inks to print high resolution graphics onto light and dark coloured fabrics. It supports cotton and polyester and can be used to personalise T-shirts, tote bags and other merchandise.

Features and benefits

The Ri 1000 can print a full colour image on a light-coloured T-shirt in just 28 seconds, and because the process is digital, designs can be changed from one garment to the next. The 7” touchscreen panel simplifies operation. Designs can be previewed at the printer and progress monitored in real time using the viewing window. An array of quick-change platens enables you to switch quickly between different garments in order to keep work flowing.
