Drive profit with an expansive variety of applications.

 

Turn nearly any surface into an innovative piece of art

Create products on foam board, wood, metal, acrylic, glass, styrene, corrugated cardboard, plastics and more. The range of supported media types not only opens the door to new printing jobs, but it also gives you the opportunity to unleash your creativity and help clients make the very best choice for their application needs. LED curing expands media versatility even further by supporting thinner and heat sensitive substrates like styrene.

Application versatility that creates opportunity

Whether for indoor or outdoor placement, meet more client needs and offer new ways to help brands stand out with signage, backlit displays, POP displays, banners, exhibition graphics, art reproductions, murals, yard signs and more. Help create visual interest for customers with short-run specialty packaging or unique promotional items that are now more affordable in smaller or on-demand quantities. With the new roll attachment option, you can also expand into flexible media — while maintaining spot-on color consistency across substrates.

Edge-to-edge printing on rigid media for impressive results

With a maximum image size of 98.4” x 51.2” the RICOH Pro TF6251 gives you the room to accommodate large sizes, display pieces and produce large images over multiple tiled boards for greater productivity. Print edge-to-edge and eliminate trimming steps. The system's true flatbed architecture enables you to print directly on pre-cut, heavy, or oddly shaped items, making it the ideal technology for versatile printing on rigid media.

Take advantage of multi-layer and textured printing

Grow your revenue with the capability to produce impressive day/night applications by printing in three layers (color-white-color). Registration pins make setup simple and ensure precise, accurate registration from pass to pass. This reliable registration also allows you to confidently create impressive visual effects, like textured applications using clear & white ink, as well as high-density coverage applications.

white ink

Discover new possibilities with vibrant white ink

Ricoh's vibrant, high-opacity white ink expands product design opportunities by helping you enhance and retain color vividness. Make colors pop on three-layer prints and day/night applications using white ink as a mid-layer. Apply white as a base layer on clear or colored media to protect the full richness of CMYK. Used as a spot color, white ink draws the eye to make graphics more engaging and help key messages stand out.

Vivid, memorable output that's designed to last

With CMYK plus white and clear ― and print resolution of up to 635 dpi x 1,800 dpi ― you can achieve varied, vibrant color no matter what projects you undertake. The built-in primer lets you print on an array of substrates without pre-treatment. And our UV inkjet printer gives you the flexibility to print in four-color, five-color, six-color, and seven-color modes.

Stunning image quality with Ricoh UV LED Inks

Not only can you achieve outstanding intense color and image quality, but you can also finish jobs faster with the UV LED inks available on the Pro TF6251. Since prints are fully cured once printing is complete, you can move to finishing steps or installation without delay. Because prints are durable and ready for immediate, handling, you can stay focused on customer deadlines and meeting tight turnarounds. Choose RICOH Pro UV DG130 Ink for maximum adhesion and flexibility or choose RICOH Pro UV GP120 Ink which is ideal for most workflows and offers and exceptional color gamut.
