With technologies developed and cultivated in this field, RISO launches the VALEZUS, a fresh brand targeting the production-printing market.

VALEZUS T2100

The first product of the new brand, the VALEZUS T2100 is a high-speed full-color cut-sheet inkjet printer. By connecting printer engines to print the front and back-side respectively, the VALEZUS T2100 achieves a blazing-fast double-sided printing speed of 320ppm. The VALEZUS T2100 offers a compact footprint for a production printer as well as superior ease of use and maintenance.

With these features, the VALEZUS T2100 increases productivity and dramatically improves work efficiency in high-volume printing.

In high-volume printing applications, such as transactional printing at print service providers, in-house printing at financial institutions, insurance companies and government offices, the VALEZUS T2100 opens a world of new possibilities in cut-sheet printing.

RISO will show the VALEZUS T2100 at the following exhibitions:
“The Print Show 2019” from September 17 to 19 in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Main features of the VALEZUS T2100

High Productivity

1) Capable of 320ppm high speed cut sheet printing

The VALEZUS T2100 can print 320ppm*1 or 19,200 pages per hour*2, based on full-color, double-sided printing of A4-sized paper. Because the VALEZUS T2100 is a cut sheet printer, it can easily handle short-run jobs as well, enabling speedy processing of a diverse range of jobs.

*1 Continuous printing of A4-sized paper with long-edge feed on standard settings
*2 Not including cleaning time

2) Incorporation of newly developed high-capacity feeder/stacker units that enable paper loading/unloading during continuous printing

The VALEZUS T2100 is equipped with two high-capacity feeder/stacker units, each capable of feeding and stacking up to 4,000 sheets (total of 8,000 sheets). The two units can be switched while the printer is active, allowing users to load/unload paper without stopping the job. Also, the stacker unit is equipped with a jogger mechanism and dedicated cart, enabling smooth transition to post-processing after printing.

* The feeder/stacker units are scheduled to be available in the spring of 2020.

3) Compatible with PDF, PostScript® as well as AFP/IPDS

The VALEZUS T2100 can fit in existing workflow of customers. It supports PDF and Postscript, generally used in an open system environment as well as AFP/IPDS, which is used as an industry standard for mission-critical production print applications.

4) Oil-based ink complements environmentally-conscious printing by low energy consumption

The VALEZUS T2100 incorporates an inkjet system that adopts oil-based inks ensuring energy-saving operation. Oil-based inks contribute to energy-saving because there is no need for ink-drying heaters required for water-based inks, and unlike toner-based technologies, there is no heat-fixing process required.
