What is a RISO duplicator?
RISO’s duplicators are based on a simple, reliable printing process that makes it possible to print at much higher speeds than are available with most conventional printing technologies.
Thanks to its print drum, a RISO duplicator can print up to 190 pages per minute, even in A3 format.
The RISO duplicator starts by scanning the document that is to be printed and then reproduces it by means of perforations on a special substrate (the “master”). This “matrix” is wrapped around a drum which rotates at high speed while the sheets of paper pass under it and are printed by means of a pressure pad.
Due to the time necessary to produce the master (approximately 20 seconds) and its cost, RISO duplicators are particularly suitable for print jobs consisting of more than 15 copies. However, very many of our customers use them for small print volumes. This decision is well justified by the speed of printing as well as by the extremely reliable and easy-to-use nature of the equipment. RISO duplicators respond perfectly to the demands of modern professional environments.
What is a RISO inkjet printer?
Characterized by the use of a cold printing system, RISO’s colour inkjet printers are ultra-compact, high-performance units. They fit perfectly into your working environment and will very rapidly become popular with your teams thanks to their ease of use.
This ergonomic printing equipment is extremely economical and provides a very cost-effective price per black-and-white or colour copy. The speed of printing and low power consumption help reduce your costs.
What technologies is RISO’s equipment based on?
Our printers are designed on the basis of an inkjet technology known as FORCEJET™. They possess fixed print heads that deposit the required ink in a single pass. Piezo technology makes it possible to control the quantity of ink on the paper with an optimum level of efficiency and reliability to guarantee precise colour reproduction and reduced costs and waste.
For their part, our duplicators make use of a master production system. This master, which is nothing other than a model that reproduces the original document, is a very thin acetate-based sheet. During printing, the matrix is wrapped around a drum and perforated to allow the ink to pass through.
Although different technologies are used in RISO’s printers and duplicators, both are based on a cold printing process which is more respectful of the environment than toner-based printing equipment and the associated heat emissions.
What is the RISO Perfect Binder?
The PERFECT BINDER is an in-line printing and binding solution. Printing is performed using the ComColor technology. The documents are then bound using a high-pressure gluing process.
Perfect Binder makes it possible to produce professional-looking books with perfect binding up to a thickness of 30 mm. It can handle Word, Excel, PowerPoint documents as well as PDF files. 62 books of 100 pages each can be bound in 1 hour using a standard-configuration ComColor GD9630.

What is a printer driver?
Drivers translate computer languages so that your printer hardware can correctly understand and process the computer files you want to print. They act as a link between your PC and your RISO equipment.
Thanks to these drivers, you can manage your print jobs from your PC and access the functionalities of your hardware from your workstation. You control your machine remotely.

What is RISO’s position regarding the environmental problems we face?
For RISO, it is Essential to make a commitment. Because we care about the impact our activities have on the environment, we are intent on minimising our eco-footprint. Our customers also support us in this approach thanks to the environmentally responsible use of our printers and duplicators.
The fact that our products make use of a cold printing system reflects RISO’s determination to follow an environmentally responsible path. Because our printer hardware does not heat up, we greatly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that this causes.
Recyclable materials, an environmental charter, certifications and many other elements testify to RISO’s desire to never neglect the importance of an environmentally responsible approach.

What types of documents can I copy or print using RISO hardware?

Here are some examples of documents that can be produced using RISO hardware: mailshots, posters, flyers, catalogues, notices, dossiers, brochures, newsletters, plans, in-house magazines, prospectuses, invitations, letterheads, customer correspondence, etc.
