RISO equipment (Danvers, MA) isn't just for churches and schools. While the company continues to serve those markets, it has identified a gap between existing midsize color MFPs and high-end production devices.

At PRINT 09, the company will unveil five ComColor high-speed inkjet printers with output speeds ranging from 90 to 150 A4 ppm at a cost said to be less than $.03 per page. Variable-data applications include transactional and transpromo documents, direct mail, booklets and marketing collateral. The printers are Energy Star rated and offer printing, scanning and copying capabilities.

The ComColor 9050, 7050, 7010, 3050, and 3010 models are distinguished by print speed, image area, paper source capacity, and accessory compatibility.

The ComColor series can produce 20,000 to 500,000 pages per month. David Murphy, RISO 's vice president of marketing, says the line targets “organizations looking for high speed and low total cost of ownership.”

Murphy offered an overview of Riso's drop-on-demand piezo inkjet technology (“no heat, laser or fuser”), oil-based pigment ink, color management and high-speed paper handling system.

RISO will continue to market its HC series of inkjet printers.
