    Ricoh naming convention?

    Four about 12 years now I've been a Ricoh tech. In those years I've only referred to the machines by either their model name or product code.

    Lately, since joining this site, I've seen several names associated with different models. Names such as Uranus (C1224) or Adonis (not even really sure of the model). The only one I've ever myself seen assigned a name was the Phoenix series.

    Where do you folks get these names from, out of curiosity. Is this something from the Ricoh only training or what? When I think back I've attended many schools for Ricoh, most of which were supplied by Ikon training staff and only one have I attended taught by Ricoh instructors, the Phoenix series.

    Can't wait to responses, and also to compile a list for my own personal uses, hehehe!!

    These naming conventions you mentioned are new to me as well, and I too will be interested in finding out.

    I used to work or Ricoh products and thought the product code was the best way to identify a particular machine. For some reason that never really caught on among techs. I rarely work on Ricohs anymore.

    I am now a Toshiba technician and we name certain 'family' of products after rivers. Such as the Rio Grande series, for example, would refer to a certain group of alike machines.

    Interesting question.

    I'm fairly fluent in the Sharp (they use feline and astronomical names), and Copystar/Kyocera Mita (it's a mixed bag), but the only Ricoh nomenclature I know is the old analog Phoenix Series which I'm trying very hard to forget. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    The Ricoh machines have always had names. From the older colors that were named after flowers (Lilly, Azalea etc) but they keep changing them planets and now cocktails. The NRG people in Europe work with 3 or 4 different brands so can have 3 different numbers for the same model so just tend to use the design name.
    But, not sure the Katana fits in as it is a sword.
    You might find this list useful.

    As a former direct Ricoh tech, I never really heard of these names either...

    I think we all know why the c1224 was called Uranus...

    I really think it would help if this naming convention was used stateside also. Our rep never seems to know which machine you talk about until you tell him the segment or get him in front of it.

    Some of the ricoh ranges were named after cocktails

    i.e.martini, bellini, russian.

    Drives you mad when the manuals are listed as e.g model b310 instead of af2105 or 2118 etc.
