Josero has installed a new Ricoh Pro L5160e printer at its Cambridgeshire showroom so that potential customers can experience live demonstrations of the Latex machine.

The installation follows the announcement in September 2021 that Josero had been appointed as a UK reseller for the full range of Ricoh’s leading Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printers and latest generation of wide-format Latex printers. The two businesses are now working together to deliver all these advanced printing solutions to end-user customers throughout the UK.

It is as part of this effort the Ricoh Pro L5160e has been installed in Cambridgeshire, with Josero already conducting live demos for potential customers. Based on Ricoh’s inkjet head and ink technology expertise, the Ricoh Pro L5160e and Ricoh Pro L5130e machines are an evolution from the pre-existing Pro L5160 and Ricoh Pro L5130 Latex large-format printers. Both machines print at just under 47sqm/hr with potential applications and colour capabilities extended by the addition of Ricoh’s enhanced quick-drying white, green and orange inks.

Sarah Winterbottom, the managing director of Josero, commented on the installation. ‘The latest Ricoh latex machines filled a gap in our product range and have been a powerful addition to our line-up,’ she said. ‘As a business, we’re extremely focused on sustainability and the Ricoh Pro Latex large-format printer technology fits perfectly within this ethos.

‘It’s fantastic that the machine has now been installed and we can showcase this eco-conscious technology to our loyal customers in our own demonstration facility.’
