  • Transcript

    • 1. Cut-Sheet Inkjet Digital Printing Challenges the Color Toner Market David Murphy Vice President of Marketing RISO, Inc.
    • 2. Let’s talk about…
      • Overview of ElectroPhotographic (EP) & Inkjet (IJ) Techniques
      • Market trends
      • Current available options for digital color
      • Piezo Drop-on-Demand features and benefits
      • Compelling arguments for HC’s inkjet over toner-based systems
    • 3. Types of Imaging Processes for Plain Paper The focus here is sheet-fed, full-color, for mid-range production Plain Paper Imaging Types Electro Photography (EP) (Xerographic: dry or liquid toner) Inkjet (IJ) Continuous Flow (for industrial printing) Drop-On-Demand PiezoElectric Thermal (Bubble) Oil-Based Pigment Ink Water-Based Pigment Ink EP Compared to Various Types of IJ
    • 4. Trends in Print Applications
      • offset pages digital
      • long run-length very short run-length
      • black & white full-color
      • static data variable data
      • transactional transpromotional
      Versatility Added Document Value Clearly, the journey toward increased versatility and document value is made possible only through digital printing technology
    • 5. Trends in Print Equipment Purchases
      • 2006-2011 MFP Industry Forecast
      • Growth Rate (CAGR)
        • Monochrome MFPs 70-89 ppm -3.3%
        • Color MFPs 41-59 ppm 44.4%
        • Color MFPs 60+ ppm 230.3%
      • So if the attributes of growth are
      • Digital , Color , and Speed ,
      • what are the customer’s choices?
      • Source: InfoTrends: US Copier Market Service & Supplies Forecast 2006-2011 (Aug 07)
    • 6. What Choices Does the Customer Have?
      • Suppose a buyer wanted to acquire a new digital printing
      • device with the capabilities for…
      • full color ?
      • very high print speed (say 85+ ppm)?
      • reliably handling high monthly volume (say 400,000+ pages)?
      • Suppose he wanted laser toner quality?
      • Suppose he wanted to spend less than $150,000 ?
      • How many options does the customer have?
    • 7. Choices for Color MFPs (EP Only) With higher speeds, hardware costs increase, choices decrease Source: BLI

    • 11. A Closer Look at RISO’s High-Speed Color Piezo IJ System Plain Paper Imaging Types Electro Photography (EP) (Xerographic: dry or liquid toner) Inkjet (IJ) Continuous Flow (for industrial printing) Drop-On-Demand PiezoElectric Thermal (Bubble) Oil-Based Pigment Ink Water-Based Pigment Ink HC5500
    • 12. Drop-on-Demand Inkjet
      • Oil-based pigment type Ink
        • Unlike oil-based ink, water-based inks tend to:
          • dry out in the cartridge and clog inkjet heads
          • smear or run when the document gets wet
        • Greater consistency and durability
        • More compatible with high-volume heavy-duty inkjet heads
      • Drop-on-Demand Piezo
        • Stationary heads
        • Robust construction for high volume production
        • Fast paper feed
          • Uses a small amount pressure to displace ink from head
          • System software directs heads to apply 0 to 7 drops of ink per dot – only where needed
          • Most other inkjet printers use thermal process that is slower and less durable
        • Has higher control of dot drop placement over thermal ink jet
        • Long head life = high duty cycles
    • 13. Gradation Control ElectroPhotographic Devices Drop on Demand, controlled by ComColor profile 8 steps of gradations: 0 to 7drops No gradation: 0 (None) or 1 (Full) HC: 1drop=6pl (pico litter) Dot is either applied or not Gradation 1 pl (pico liter) = 0.000000000001 litter RISO HC5500, IJ Ink drops 1dpi
    • 14. Print Speed (The Word’s Fastest…)
      • Fastest overall
        • Kodak Versamark: 500 feet per minute
      • Fastest cut-sheet
        • RISO HC5500: 120 pages per minute
      Source: InfoTrends “Choosing a Digital Production Color Device” July 2007

        • High speed
        • Low operating cost
        • Reliability
        • Durability
        • Versatility
        • Efficient handling of VDP applications
        • Low power consumption
      • Compared to toner-based production printers
        • Relatively low hardware acquisition cost
        • Small footprint
        • Simple, intuitive operation; no skilled operator required
    • 16. The RISO HC5500 – Applications
      • Best fit: higher volume environments where productivity, reliability , and low operating costs outweigh the need for ultra-high print quality
        • Transactional & transpromotional printing
        • Direct mail
        • Traditional static &variable data reprographic applications
    • 17. Competitive Differentiation in Your Print Operation
        • “ The RISO HC has the potential to open up an entirely new low-cost color printing business model for the print-for-pay marketplace.”
