'Walk-Up' Ready With Automated Maintenance

The RICOH Ri 1000 is the only walk-up ready DTG printer in the industry. While other DTG printers require frequent maintenance, the RICOH Ri 1000 saves time by automating white ink agitation, self-cleaning functions, and continuous monitoring of ink supply and air levels. For maintenance functions that are not automated, the RICOH Ri 1000’s built-in Interactive Operation Guide alerts users, sending them reminders to complete necessary tasks. The result is a printer that is low-maintenance and ready to print at any time.

Built-In Interactive Operation Guide With Smart Alerts

To make maintenance even easier, the RICOH Ri 1000 features a built-in Interactive Operation Guide. Accessible through the machine's spacious 7' touchscreen display, the interactive guide provides smart alerts reminding you when to perform routine manual maintenance tasks. Recognized for these cutting-edge features, the RICOH Ri 1000 direct-to-garment printer earned its designation as a RED HOT Technology in 2019.

Time-Proven Quality & Reliability

A CES 2019 Innovation Award honoree, the RICOH Ri 1000 is built to world-class quality standards. It offers rugged, industrial-strength steel construction and reliable, time-proven components. Enjoy dependable, industry-leading functionality with features like the high-performance Ricoh-built print engine and print heads. The RICOH Ri 1000 is a workhorse ready to fill demanding jobs for years to come.

Quick-Change Platens for Versatility & Ease of Use

With the RICOH Ri 1000, changing platens is a snap. Quick-change magnetic platens, available in multiple styles and sizes up to an extra-large 16" x 19.6", provide a variety of print options and easily snap on and off the machine with virtually no downtime. Dressable platen design makes garments easier to load, prevents ink bleed, and helps garments lay flatter for higher accuracy when printing.
