Ricoh has launched the new Auto Color Adjuster (ACA) to help commercial printers expand into colour critical markets, increase production versatility, streamline production processes, and improve their quality and consistency.

The manufacturer said the new device speeds up the labour intensive process of achieving precise colour reproduction from system to system, and job to job; and enables team members to create ICC profiles in minutes, and match colour from pre-printed samples to run jobs across multiple systems.

Additionally, users will be able to reproduce colours from unknown sources, printed images, and digital and offset technologies; increase their production capacity with fast, precise colour matching; and easily verify colour adjustments against compliance standards, according to Ricoh.

Eef de Ridder, vice president, Graphic Communications Group, Ricoh Europe said: “Time taken to manually adjust colour to meet print buyers’ demands can quickly impact profitability, while the costs of trial and error, blocking precious press time to troubleshoot and employing a colour expert all mount up.

“Ricoh Auto Color Adjuster speeds up the process. It empowers commercial printers to take on new jobs and work that was previously out of reach, and so expand their client base.”

Auto Color Adjuster is available across EMEA immediately and has been demonstrated during the Print Evolution Live event at Ricoh’s Customer Experience Centre in Telford this week.
