Japanese digital printing machine manufacturer Riso Kagaku Corporation highlighted its Valezus T2100 cut-sheet inkjet printer at the recently concluded virtual.drupa 2021. Mike Murphy, product and assistant marketing manager at Riso UK, talked about the press during his presentation.

“The Valezus T2100 is the fastest cut-sheet inkjet printer in the world with a printing speed of 320 pages per minute or 19,200 A4 pages per hour. As a result, the press is suitable for a wide range of both short and long-run applications,” Murphy said. 

Murphy said that the length of the machine is 4.8 meters, and the installation area required is about 3.6 square meters. In addition, the press has its own dedicated controller, the Alpha Stream. “This is suitable for a wide range of data streams and workflow types,” he added.

Riso’s Valezus T2100 having high-capacity feeder or stacker units

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 a smooth transition to post-processing after printing.

The printer can fit in the 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.

“The Valezus T2100 has a compact footprint, does not require any special power, and also does not require any special ventilation, making it an extremely easy machine to install in any working environment,” Murphy said. 

The GD and FT series

Riso also talked about its GD and FT series printers. The GD series consists of two variants, ComColor GD 9630, which has 160 pages per minute, and ComColor GD 7330, which has a speed of 130 pages per minute

The FT series comprises six models ComColor FT5430 with the speed of 140 pages per minute, ComColor FT5230 with the speed of 120 pages per minute, ComColor FT5231 with the speed of 120 pages per minute, ComColor FT5000 with a speed of 100 pages per minute, ComColor FT2430 with 140 pages per minute, and ComColor black FT143 with a speed of 140 pages per minute. 


In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
