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. 


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
