Riso UK has launched Valezus, a new brand of inkjet printers for the production print market.

The first product in the brand is the Valezus T2100, which will be on display at the Print Show next month. This is a high-speed, cut-sheet printer which Riso has said will increase productivity and improve work efficiency in high-volume printing.

The T2100 has a printing speed of 320ppm, based on full-colour, double-sided printing of A4-sized paper, which it achieves by connecting printer engines to print the front and reverse-sides respectively.

From the spring of 2020 the printer will be equipped with two high-capacity feeder/stacker units, each able to handle 4000 sheets. The two units can be switched while the printer is active, allowing users to load and unload paper without interrupting production. 

Finally, the T2100 incorporates an inkjet system that adopts oil-based inks. This saves energy as there is no need for ink-drying heaters or a heat-fixing process.
