Product Description

Ricoh SG-2100N A4 Colour Simplex Network GelJet Printer

1.27-inch wide print head delivers high speed, high quality printing

The GELJET print head design produces high quality output at high speeds. Each print head holds 1.27-inch long nozzle rows containing 384 nozzles, distributing more ink, faster with each pass. We developed this original head technology using a plurality of piezoelectric elements that generates high internal pressure combined with high frequency response to discharge the high viscosity GELJET Viscous Ink. Utilizing our accumulated semiconductor fabrication technology experience, we fabricated the nozzle structure and other components on a micron level, for stable, high-precision ink discharge.

BT System reduces paper misfeeds for more stable printing

GELJET BT system adopts electrostatic transfer belt technology used in laser printers, combining it with paper feed conveyance used for inkjet printers, optimized into a new conveyance system. Paper adheres perfectly to the belt, propelled forward by the belt conveyance system, overcoming the weakness of inkjets that tends to cause paper jams, for stable printing at 3 mm margins. Moreover, improved sensors have shortened the distance required between sheets, making faster printing possible.

Water-insoluble viscous ink produces beautiful results without smears or smudges

Most inkjet printers use either dye-based or pigment-based ink cartridges. Because dye-based inks use water-soluble dyes, they smear more easily on paper. Dyes also break down when exposed to light, so lightfastness is also a problem. Addressing these problems, all four colors of viscous ink use pigment-based ink. Pigment-based ink, like toner used in laser printers and photocopiers, is water-insoluble, overcoming dye ink weaknesses, reducing page bleed due to moisture, etc. Higher colorfast properties produce fantastic results on plain paper as well as glossy or other high-quality papers: Perfect for documents that need to stand the test of time.


SG-2100N A4 Colour Geljet Printer The new GELJET range from Ricoh builds on the success of the GelSprinters and takes the technology to another level.

The SG 2100N uses a new Gel formula with improved viscosity to give a better image quality and prevent clogging and drying in the print head. Maintenance is easy with only five consumables to replace and the SG 2100N has incredibly low power usage only 27W compared with over 500W for a colour laser printer.

The 2100N is also fast for a printer in its class at 29 pages per minute and is 30% smaller and lighter than its predecessors making it an ideal alternative to both laser and inkjet printers.

  • Low purchase price (similar to inkjet, less than laser)
  • Low running costs (similar to laser, less than inkjet)
  • Highly productive with print speeds of up to 29 ppm
  • High resolution smudge resistant output on plain paper
  • Energy effi cient print process (1/10th the energy consumption of laser)
