    Kyocera Buying Ricoh production machines

    Our kyocera salesmen was just in and told us kyocera is relabeling the Ricoh production units
    and will be showing them in April kick off show.

    Has anyone worked with the ricoh boxes ? From the northwest we dont see to many production units sold.

    He said they will also be showing a 100cpm inkjet machine not sure who makes that one

    I worked for Ricoh for many Years and now I work for a Kyocera dealer and hope and pray that does NOT happen. Ricoh production is just fast plastic and they suck.. and very time consuming.

    I do know that Epson makes an inkjet that is north of 100 PPM and uses the same finisher that Kyocera finisher.

    I do not think Kyocera makes the finishers.

    In the day, not sure how true this still is but...pretty much all finishers are made by canon. Story goes that is how they got into the copier business in the first place.

    Used to be that you would crack open a minolta or ricoh finisher and the darn things main board even said canon, though the staple heads have always been swingline.

    I don't know who makes the finishers....What I do know is that the Epson with a spacer uses the same finisher.

    Kyocera has held it's own against the big boys so I don't see the logic in this.
    70ppm with staple, punch, saddle is plenty of market share.
    Why risk your brand on someone else's intellectual property

    I agree with you. We have techs who work on the Ricoh production machines and are very labor intensive. I hope this is "fake news", lol.

    Unfortunately many school districts and institutions spec out for MFP north of 95 or so CPM and typically these are hard minimums.
