•
•
•
Compact design – easily fits on or under the desktop with a very low height profile of only 259mm.
Light 14KG weight makes this printer easy to move by standard office staff at
short notice.
No rear access required – complete front access to paper and supply changing means that the printer can be housed in a restricted space with no provision needed for
movement.
Minimum installation space requirements – Only minimal clearance space is required around the printer, reducing the overall extended footprint necessary for hardware and ventilation.
Weights of up to 20KG can be placed on the flat top of the printer, enabling space to be saved in a surprising way by using the GelSprinter as a shelf for desktop furniture.
Features that save printing and document creation time
•

Outstanding reliability – maximum up time from re-engineered non-clogging “Third Generation” technology with a durable construction capable of 10k prints/month. Backed by Ricoh with a two-year on-site warranty (depending on your purchase plan).
•
Fast drying Gel dries much faster than normal dye or pigment ink and makes prints available for use immediately after printing.
•
Electronic collation prints multiple copies of multi-page documents in the correct
numerical sequence using RAM memory - saving manual collation.
•

One-click settings for frequently used jobs saves time (RPCS)
•
Print jobs from different applications can be merged “on the fly” to create one document – saving the time to do manual collation after printing (RPCS)

No environmentally sensitive materials (Mercury, Chromium, Cadmium, PCB’s, PCT’s, ozone depleting substances) have been used in manufacture.
Full environmental compliance with new Energy Star version 1.1 - the GX e3300n and GX e3350n already meet this newer and more stringent specification requiring 14% more energy efficiency than currently qualified models.
Full environmental compliance with Blue Angel (BAM), ISO 9001:2000 (Quality), ISO 14001:2004 (Environment), ISO 18001 (Health and Safety), ISO 11469 / ISO 1043
(Plastic), WEEE, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances).
Clean airborne - contaminant free technology - GelSprinters are based on powder-
free viscous Gel technology, so can be used in sensitive clean environments where
inadvertent toner spillage from untrained users may otherwise cause problems.
Low power consumption – Only 36W in use, which is less than a typical light bulb, and 7W in Energy Saver Mode. Competing lasers consume at least 10 times more electricity.
Zero Ozone emissions – no fusing or charging is required during the imaging process, and no irritating Ozone is produced.
Minimal heat production at over 10 times less than equivalent colour lasers places no additional energy requirements for office air conditioning systems.
Manufactured from carbon neutral plant-based plastics - Several interior
components are manufactured from PLA plant-based rather than petroleum-based
plastics.
Low PCW (Post Consumer Waste) impact - Small size of consumables and
packaging, with permanent print heads leaves minimal Post Consumer Waste for disposal and recycling.
Manufactured with “zero waste” means that no items have been sent to landfill in the Ricoh site where this printer has been produced.
Distributed through a supply chain with ISO14001: 2004 accreditation means that post manufacture handling and distribution through the Ricoh supply chain is in
accordance with the best ecological practices.
Marketed by Ricoh, a world leader for environmental practices - Voted by the World Economic Forum for the last five consecutive years as one of the top 100 most sustainable companies.

Unauthorised prints can be traced with the unique Driver Data Security Feature (RPCS). This lays down an invisible background, which only appears when the document is copied – allowing document leaks to be traced to the original recipient.
Watermarks provide the ability to print text, such as “Confidential,” in the background of every page of a document
IP Filtering – IP address ranges can be set through WebImageMonitor so that only
commands and print jobs from computers within that range will be accepted –
preventing prints from unauthorised computers.
Network Port Restriction – Network Ports can be disabled via WebImageMonitor to prevent hackers from using them to enter the network.
Operation Panel can be locked – prevents changes to printer settings by
unauthorised staff.
