The most versatile in-line
finishing solution
Finishing used to be the most labour
intensive part of the document production
process. It no longer has to be. Ricoh’s
Pro™ C900/C900s takes the extra work
out of your hands with a unique array
of finishing options. Its trendsetting
solutions allow you to create completely
finished sets, and impress even the most
demanding client.
• A variety of finishing options unmatched
at this end of the market.
• Eye-catching booklet making and
cover insertion.
First class documents
Clients expect classy presentation materials, professional colour prints
and beautiful brochures. Create the application you need with the
Pro™ C900/C900s’s robust 3,000-sheet finisher with 100-sheet stapler.
The optional punch unit saves you time and makes expensive pre-punch
paper redundant. The BK5000 saddle stitch unit is available for cost effective finishing of internal documents.
Automatic booklet creation
Impress your clients with professional booklets. The SR5010e booklet
maker produces accurately folded A5 and A4 sets. This solution speeds
up the production of leaflets, brochures, catalogues and other marketing
& sales materials. It automatically folds and saddle-stitches booklets of
up to 120 pages. The optional trimmer gives a truly professional finish.
In-line book folding
This option on the SR5010e automatically creates square back booklets
with the same look and feel as perfectly bound books at a fraction of
the cost.
Advanced Z-folding
Including A3 charts and tables in an A4 presentation is straightforward.
The handy Z-folder unit automatically folds A3 sheets into A4 output,
or A4 documents into A5. Larger sheets now become a natural part
of smaller-sized sets. There are simple answers to complex jobs.
Professional cover insertion
To brighten high-value documents, insert a full colour or pre-printed
front and back cover using the double cover interposer. It is the perfect
choice to create product catalogues, user manuals and brochures for
a lasting impression.
A varied range of finishings for high-value colour documents
The added value of
automated finishing
The Pro™ C900/C900s presents the most
complete array of finishing options that
can be combined in one device. No need
to choose between booklet making or
glue binding: you can have both and offer
multiple ways of finishing without any extra
investments. Whether your clients require
basic booklets or perfect books with glued
backs, you can print them on demand and
accommodate every wish.
Ready to bind documents
Forget manually punching documents offline and hand-loading each
set into a table top punch. The GBC StreamPunch™ III unit produces
perfectly punched and ready-to-bind documents at the touch of a
button. Its operation does not compromise the Pro™ C900/C900s’s
output speed.
