Inside an Eco Friendly Printer

Kuala Lumpur, 15 July 2013 - Bid farewell to smudgy prints and say hello to natural eco-friendly printer ink – it is Ricoh’s GelJet printer series, noticeably one of the most modern in technology and environmentally friendly printers that will have the “greenies” go wild. The GelJet range can be categorised into two groups – the Single Function (SG3110DN, SG3110DNw) and the Multifunction (SG3100SNw, SG3110SFNw). Both series offer affordable colour for every need, suitable for printing high quality colour documents for shops, businesses, and home users. 
“In line with Ricoh’s new brand tagline “imagine. change.”, we perpetually strive for technological breakthroughs to move forward with new thinking and new ways of improving lives. We are committed to helping our customers embrace these changes through innovation,” said Peter Wee, Chief Operating Officer of Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.
Featuring fast-drying Ricoh patent viscous pigment-based Liquid Gel™, the ink does not permeate paper, is smudge-free, water resistant, and it dries instantly enabling high speed duplex printing. In addition, the GelJet printers not only deliver high quality colour at low cost on plain paper, it also produces full colour output at a similar cost to mono laser printers.
To further reinforce Ricoh’s eco commitment, the specially designed Liquid Gel™ is made of plant oil, rendering it edible and safe for children use. The components of the printers too are produced from plant-based recyclable plastic – polylactic acid (PLA), making it one of the most eco-friendly machines invented to date. 
“Not only do we aim to satisfy consumer needs, we are also determined to strike a healthy balance in protecting our environment in the making of our products. In fact, the Ricoh GelJet series has been awarded both the prestigious Blue Angel Mark (BAM) ecological label, and The Thai Green Label Scheme for energy efficiency and environmental friendliness,” said Wee. 
The simple architecture and minimal number of highly durable parts ensure maximum reliability and long life. In addition, the Energy Saver Mode allows the printers’ consumption of 90% less power than a conventional colour laser printer, which also reduces CO2 emissions – perfectly reflecting its’ cost and energy efficiency uniqueness.
In ECOnomy Colour mode, the intelligent GelJet printers can distinguish between text and images. While images are reduced by half in thickness, text is printed in solid black – delivering sharp quality documents at virtually the cost of black and white.
These innovative user-friendly GelJet printers are compact in design with a small footprint of only 36cm deep. With full front access, these versatile printers are an ideal fit for anywhere. Furthermore, the WiFi enabled functions for the Single Function series - SG 3110DNw and the Multifunction series (SG3100SNw, SG3110SFNw), allow photos and files to be sent to the machine to print from compatible iOS and Android devices, allowing users to conveniently print from anywhere, anytime.
The first of its kind, the GelJet printers possess a powerful 128mb memory and 800MHz processor that enables an impressive 29 pages per minute A4 colour print speed, with the first page out in only 6.5 seconds. It also offers a duty cycle of 10,000 pages per month to cater to small offices.
The Multi Bypass Tray option allows users to easily print banners, envelopes and custom papers of different paper sizes and weights. The single function GelJet is priced from RM660 onwards while the multifunction GelJet is priced from RM980 and up.
