New EFI Fiery DFE for Ricoh Pro C9200/C9210 drive exceptional speed, quality and workflow integration

May 24, 2018

EFI, is announcing two new EFI™ Fiery® digital front ends (DFEs) designed to drive Ricoh's new ProTM C9200/ProTM C9210 high end digital colour production presses. Based on the latest Fiery FS300 Pro software, the Fiery Color Controllers E-45 and E-85 digital front ends ensure unparalleled productivity, exceptional colour and seamless workflow integration.

Fiery job processing technology ensures customers can maximise engine utilisation and minimise downtime, resulting in higher production capacity and greater workflow efficiency. Plus, Fiery HyperRIP for the E-85 provides additional job processing flexibility by parallel processing of up to four print jobs simultaneously. Plus, a Rush RIP mode on the DFE opens up a fifth RIP to process rush jobs when all four main parallel processors are busy.

"Our clients have come to depend on the exceptional performance delivered by Fiery DFEs," said Eef de Ridder, Ricoh director of Commercial Printing, Commercial & Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe. "Our long term and close collaboration with EFI in the development of DFEs optimised for use exclusively with Ricoh digital presses has been an important factor in the overall success of our digital printing portfolio. With these two new Fiery DFEs, we have continued this work, supporting the ever more functional and productive digital printing solutions that are clients are looking for."

Workflow automation tools included with both DFEs minimise repetitive tasks and reduce touch points. The free Fiery JobFlow™ Base software comes pre-installed, which automates job preparation steps in prepress workflows to produce ready-to-print files, increasing productivity and reducing costs. And, for customers who want to perform more advanced automation, including intelligent job routing and advanced scripting, it's easy to upgrade to the paid version of Fiery JobFlow.

Customers can establish broader, business-wide workflow automation using the Fiery DFEs to integrate their digital print operations with EFI management information systems, EFI Web-to-Print software, and other popular prepress workflows like Kodak™ PRINERGY™ with their latest Digital Job Ticket Editor integration, as well as Agfa Apogee® and Heidelberg® Prinect®. In addition to the built-in industry standard, and certified JDF connectivity, Fiery API enables print service providers to rapidly develop live, bidirectional integration with their homegrown software or web services for their unique workflow automation needs. The REST architectural style that has become standard for today's web API allows easy development regardless of application or software platforms including web browser, Windows®, Mac®, Linux®, iOS®, Android®.

"Ricoh continues to advance its digital press portfolio, and EFI is pleased to collaborate with Ricoh to deliver these high-value DFEs to ensure the new presses will exceed customer expectations in terms of quality and productivity," said John Henze, vice president, Fiery marketing, EFI. "In addition to high quality and fast throughput, productivity enhancers such as Fiery JobFlow automate labor-intensive tasks, and tight integration with key workflow solutions eliminate bottlenecks across the entire workflow."

The new Fiery DFEs are available from Ricoh Europe and authorised Ricoh resellers.
