Digital Duplicator
High-volume duplex productivity
Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD
High-volume duplication with duplexing.
As the industry’s first duplexing digital duplicator, the RICOH®
Priport DX 4640PD is specifically engineered to deliver large
volumes of two-sided output with excellent image quality and
outstanding cost efficiency. This reliable, user-friendly system
sets a new standard for affordable, high-volume productivity.
It enables healthcare providers, print-for-pay facilities, central
reproduction departments (CRD) and others
to dramatically increase
output speed while
keeping cost-per-page
extremely low.
Fast, Flawless Performance
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD incorporates an
innovative design and specialized paper feeding
mechanism to deliver reliable duplex printing in a
single pass. It also handles a wide range of paper
sizes for one-sided documents, so users can expect
superior productivity for a variety of print jobs.
• Complete large jobs quickly with output speeds up to 120 two-sided
8.5" x 11" pages-per-minute (ppm), or 240 images-per-minute (ipm).
At this rate, users can produce over 14,000 impressions-per-hour.
• Improve productivity more than 40% by printing two-sided documents,
eliminating wait-time for drying ink, and the need to feed sheets into
the system twice.
• Optimize productivity for one-sided documents with output speeds up
to 135 ppm.
• Maximize efficiency with multifunctional capabilities. The Ricoh Priport
DX 4640PD serves as a high-volume network printer as well as a digital
copier. Users can duplicate documents from the platen or scan them
with the automatic reversing document feeder.
• Store frequently duplicated documents on the hard drive for instant reprints.
• Get started on important jobs immediately with a first-print time as
low as 12 seconds.
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD uses an innovative
drum design and duplex tray to duplicate two-sided
documents with speed and cost efficiency.
Consistent, Crisp Image Quality
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD delivers high-quality
output for every document it duplicates.
• Produce bold solids, halftones and photos—while eliminating printthrough—with well-defined masters and evenly percolated ink.
• Improve reliability with automatic print pressure control, which adjusts
system settings according to slight fluctuations in print speed, temperature
and humidity.
• Ensure registration from page-to-page, and fine-tune results with an
adjustable margin of 0.25 mm.
• Minimize off-set with a paper delivery tray that uses unique buffer fins
to align finished sheets with precision.
Measurable Cost Savings
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD with “direct-to-plate”
technology allows quick reproduction of duplex
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD is geared for costconscious users who need to increase output
volumes and keep operating costs as low as possible.
• Drop cost-per-page for large print and copy volumes to just fractions of
a cent—then cut that cost even further with duplex output.
• Reduce cost-per-page even more with a durable, long-lasting master that
can easily handle up to 4,000 one-sided images or 8,000 duplex images.
Easy, Intuitive Operation
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD delivers output speed
and image quality that rival the capabilities of a
small printing press, yet it is as easy to use as a
conventional copier.
• Speed through job setup quickly with the large, easy-to-navigate LCD
touch-screen panel.
Detailed fleet reports from the @Remote service make
it easy to track costs and measure performance.
• Eliminate errors in printing and master-making with a single button that
initiates both activities. Process status is clearly displayed.
• Prepare the Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD for operation in less than 15 seconds.
Getting the system ready is as easy as turning the system on, and finishing
is as simple as turning it off. No labor intensive clean up is required such as
with an offset press.
• Loading supplies is easy, even for new users. Disposing of used masters is
quick, clean and easy. The user never is required to touch the inked up
masters. Just push a lever to dispose of the old master in a secure receptacle.
Intelligent Remote Management
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD comes
equipped with several ways to
streamline administration.
• @Remote™ Intelligent Remote Management System is
a device management service for networked products
that automatically collects meter data from the Ricoh
Priport DX 4640PD which enables remote meter reading
and billing. In addition, the customer can have
access to detailed fleet utilization reporting that helps
IT departments keep track of output and total costs.
• Monitor system status or adjust setting remotely
over the network with SmartDeviceMonitor™, or
over the Web with Web Image Monitor™ software.
Solid Durability
The Ricoh Priport DX 4640PD delivers the
reliable performance necessary to ensure smooth,
uninterrupted production and strong, long-term
investment protection.
• Keep service calls to a minimum with a high duty cycle, up to 600,000
prints per month.
• Expect longer system life with a design that features minimal moving
parts and “cold process” print technology that does not require a fuser.
• Enjoy automatic detection and resolution of paper jams, misfeeds or
double-feeds with the Double Feed Detector and Paper Feed Retry features.
Quality Output for Multiple Markets
For many kinds of users, the Ricoh Priport
DX 4640PD offers a smart, affordable way to
complete high-volume print jobs quickly and
cost effectively.
• Hospitals, clinics and other healthcare providers can print two-sided
patient forms, including those that require NCR paper.
• Schools, colleges, and university CRDs can produce enrollment
paperwork, permission documents and other two-sided forms without
expensive outsourcing.
• Large churches and other faith-based organizations can print twosided program inserts, bulletins, newsletters and fundraising materials.
• Print-for-pay facilities can create profitable new revenue streams for
customers that need large volumes of duplex documents.
• In-plant and CRD sites can cost efficiently produce business forms and
notices in-house reducing the need for outsourcing, allowing the proper
utilization of other production equipment such as large digital copiers.
Ricoh continues its long-standing
commitment to developing office
solutions with environmentally
friendly and superior energy- and
supply-saving features, without
