Ricoh showcases capabilities of Ri 2000 direct-to-garment (DTG) printer in new video

February 16, 2021

Ricoh has released a new video offering an insight into the core benefits and key features of the Ricoh Ri 2000 Direct to Garment (DTG) Printer.

Available in the UK from March 2021, the Ricoh Ri 2000 has been designed to make professional, high quality printing faster and easier for personalised garments and other fabric accessories, with users benefitting from excellent output quality on both light and dark materials.

Capable of high-volume results, the printer is an effective option for businesses that offer short and long job runs. The Ricoh Ri 2000 has a maximum printable area of 406mm x 498mm and can handle 100% cotton, cotton blends with at least 50% cotton, and 100% light polyester up to 30mm thick.

This flexibility allows users to print virtually any digital image on products including T-shirts, polo shirts, face masks, hoodies, tote bags, cushion covers and many other garments and fabric accessories - all in high resolution prints up to 1200 x 1200 dpi.

The Ricoh Ri 2000 also delivers exceptionally fast print speeds, thanks to its dual-carriage system, each containing four of Ricoh's own inkjet print heads. One of these carriages is allocated to print white, while the second carriage prints CMYK colours. This setup means users can produce printed products in ‘speed mode' in just 33 seconds, or in 48 seconds when selecting the ‘fine mode' option.

In addition, you can dig into the details of the Ricoh Ri 2000 at an upcoming live technology showcase which is taking place at 11am GMT on February 25, 2021. Part of Ricoh's Anything in Print series, the webinar-style event, titled ‘Putting New Inkjet Technology to Work', will highlight the benefits of Ricoh's latest inkjet printing devices - including the Ricoh Ri 2000 - designed to help customers broaden their horizons and adapt to the changing world of print.

As an added incentive to learn more about these solutions, attendees will also automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a brand new Ricoh Ri 100 DTG printer.
