A medium to large office can improve its productivity with the Ricoh Aficio MP9000, high-powered copier praised for user-friendly operation, heavy-duty build, and high paper capacity. The Ricoh Aficio MP9000 digital multifunction imaging system is also capable of producing sharp and crisp output because of the high resolution, but it lacks colour printing capabilities along with some important features.
The Ricoh Aficio MP9000 printer is an understated-looking machine with a large frame that measures 870mm wide, 860mm deep, and 1,476mm tall. It weighs less than 305Kg, but a pedestal with wheels can be integrated into the base unit for mobility. The Ricoh MP 9000 black and white MFP uses electro photographic printing method with a two-by-four-way laser diode array copying process. It has two 160GB hard disk drives and generous standard paper capacity with two 500-sheet trays and two 1,000-sheet tandem trays. The output bin can handle up to 3,000 sheets. The Aficio MP-9000 mono laser printer stands out with a duplexer on the flatbed scanner and the large touchscreen operator panel. Connectivity is mainly via USB 2.0 and Ethernet.
High-volume production is supported with the ability to produce up to 9,999 multiple copies, a maximum of 8,500 sheets of input, a duty cycle of up to 1.2 million pages per month, and professional finishing options. The Ricoh Aficio MP9000 multifunction copier is easy to operate because of the large colour touchscreen LCD panel. The print speed is up to 90ppm. Output is produced in 1200x1200dpi, so users can expect sharper and crisper documents. The Aficio MP 9000 multifunction printer can scan full-colour pages and print on two sides of one paper. This high-volume document production tool is equipped with a high-yield Ricoh MP9000 black toner that lasts for up to 60,000 pages.
The Ricoh Aficio MP9000 system is expensive and there are features that are missing in the base unit, which would require pricey upgrades. These include the finishers for in-house publishing needs and printer and scanner functionalities. Users need to provide more installation space if they are installing additional paper handling equipment on the MP9000. Colour printing is not supported.
