Ricoh refreshed its lineup of higher-end A3 monochrome copiers and MFPs. The new, 60-ppm Aficio MP 6002, 75-ppm Aficio MP 7502 and 90-ppm MP Aficio 9002 replace the 60-ppm Aficio MP 6001, the 70-ppm Aficio MP 7001, the 80-ppm Aficio MP 8001 and the 90-ppm Aficio MP 9001, all of which were introduced in 2009. The lineup has been streamlined from four different machines to three. The Aficio MP 6002, Aficio MP 7502 and Aficio MP 9002 are manufactured using a new, eco-friendly steel made of 100 percent recycled scrap, the first fruits of the partnership between Ricoh and Tokyo Steel Manufacturing.

Summary

Ricoh refreshed its lineup of higher-end A3 monochrome copiers and MFPs. The new, 60-ppm Aficio MP 6002, 75-ppm Aficio MP 7502 and 90-ppm MP Aficio 9002 replace the 60-ppm Aficio MP 6001, the 70-ppm Aficio MP 7001, the 80-ppm Aficio MP 8001 and the 90-ppm Aficio MP 9001, all of which were introduced in 2009. The lineup has been streamlined from four different machines to three. The Aficio MP 6002, Aficio MP 7502 and Aficio MP 9002 are manufactured using a new, eco-friendly steel made of 100 percent recycled scrap, the first fruits of the partnership between Ricoh and Tokyo Steel Manufacturing. The new machines are based on the print engine and consumables used in the previous machines. Each of the new devices is available as a copier-only configuration or as an “SP” model with copy, print and scan functionality with fax available as an option. The monthly duty cycle on each new machine is 300,000 impressions and ships with a standard paper capacity of 4,300 sheets, expandable to 8,300 sheets with the optional 4,000-sheet large capacity tray. While the new units leverage existing technology, they do offer a number of enhancements distinguishing them from their predecessors, including an upgraded controller, a customizable home screen with web access and cloud-based solutions. The new units offer improvements such as the ability to change from simplex to duplex printing during the same batch scanning job and mobile printing support. The new copiers/MFPs also feature an eco-friendly indicator to measure the “Paper Savings Ratio (%).” Finishing options include the 2,000-sheet finisher with saddle-stitch stapler, a multi-fold unit and hole punching.

As noted, the new Aficio MP 6002, Aficio MP 7502 and Aficio MP 9002 employ the same consumables as the previous generation. Ricoh’s Type 6110 toner container yields 43,000 pages, and the Type 24 black developer yields 350,000 pages. Ricoh does not publish list pricing for the machines. The firm's dealers set the price for supplies rather than the manufacturer.

The Aficio MP 6002, Aficio MP 7502 and Aficio MP 9002 are currently available. The machines sit toward Ricoh's monochrome portfolio and face stiff competition. Competitive monochrome A3 machines include Canon's new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 6255, 6265 and 6275 machines; the Konica Minolta bizhub 552 and 652; the Toshiba e-STUDIO556, 656, 756, 856 and the WorkCentre 5775 and 5790, which sit atop Xerox's WorkCentre 5700 family of A3/tabloid black-and-white MFPs.
