BDT’s VX370 provides a high capacity long sheet option for Ricoh users
A partnership with German media handling specialist BDT Print Media allows users of Ricoh’s Pro C9100 Pro C7100 series digital colour sheet-fed presses to better meet demands for high volume “long sheet” production.
When the VX370 Feeder is integrated with the colour sheet fed systems it provides a high capacity solution for feeding with a long sheet option. It supports the efficient, high volume production of a range of applications including A4 landscape booklets, brochures, posters and six page A4 folders.
The feeder uses BDT’s patented vacuum-free Tornado technology for media separation to handle a very wide range of media types, from 60 to 400gsm. Its lift and transport mechanism ensures the sensitive and reliable handling of coated and uncoated paper, textured substrates and synthetics.
Media lengths up to 700mm and stacks up to 500mm can be processed. Productivity is enhanced with reduced job changeover times thanks to the device’s memory storage of repeat jobs.
