With output speeds of 35/45 pages per minute equaling duplex speeds, no deadline is unfeasible for these systems. Warm up is incredibly fast too at 15/20 seconds while your first copy is in the output tray in 4.3/3.6 seconds. No valuable time wasted.

Continuous Operation

Large print or copy jobs are easily taken care of by the systems’ impressive maximum paper capacity of 3,550 sheets. Refills are down to an absolute minimum. As the systems alert you in case paper or toner run out, you keep a constant status overview of your network devices

Efficient Business Faxing

  • save time and provide better output quality at the receiving end by sending fax messages directly from your own PC (LAN fax)
  • reduce the distribution of printed faxes by transmitting them via the local network or forwarding them to any e-mail address
  • register and maintain your fax/e-mail address book (LDAP) in the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) directly from the operation panel or through Web SmartDeviceMonitor™/Web Image Monitor

Advanced Device Monitoring

Using Web SmartDeviceMonitor™, the status of networked peripherals can be monitored and checked through web browsers. Additionally, IT managers and network administrators can set user privileges, obtain complete job statistics and restrict usage.

Unique & Custom Made

Whether you work in a small workgroup or larger office environment, your needs with regards to office equipment are diverse yet precise. At Ricoh, we simply build a customised system around your workflow to suit your exact document processing needs. Various printer configurations are available for lower as well as higher print volumes. Should you require extra functionality at a certain point, capabilities can easily be added. A printer/scanner unit, a fax module, finishers, extra paper trays, software packages… basically anything is possible.

Advanced Printingade

How easy would it be if you could be assured that when you print confidential documents, they stay secret? Locked Print™ makes sure the machine keeps your document until you release it with your password. To avoid prints being left on the tray and eliminate paper waste, the Hold Print function is very helpful. Should you choose the systems’ Adobe® PostScript® 3™ option, you obtain PDF Direct Print, a handy tool to reduce network traffic and increase total productivity.

Handy Workflow Tools

To be able to handle your document workflow professionally, several document management utilities are available. You can store frequently used copy, print, fax and scan documents on the machine’s document server for re-use.Using DeskTopBinder™ Lite, you can merge documents of different formats into one file and view, print and re-distribute it all digitally.

Efficient Document Distribution

For a well-structured document workflow, distribution tools have become necessary. If you need to send digitised files, ‘scan to e-mail’ is available. Should you need to send large files, you can do so via ‘scan to folder’ and send up to 2 GB. As third option, ‘scan to URL’ allows you, as receiver, to check the e-mail and decide whether and when to download the file. This prevents a huge e-mail inbox and offers the opportunity to download files at a later time.

Safeguard Access & Informationn

As office products have turned into advanced network devices, security threats have become a major concern. The Aficio™MP 3500/MP 4500 offer Windows® authentication which allows a user with access to the regular network, to also access the MFP. Other authentication methods have been developed to suit any network environment. To safeguard the data on the Hard Disk Drive, a Data Overwrite Security function is applicable. This unit ensures the hidden temporary data is overwritten with random data after completion of a job. Any security threat will be eliminated!
