Fast Speeds

The RICOH Ri 2000 prints full-color 10-inch x 8-inch graphics on light-colored garments in less than 10 seconds. Outfitted with a dual carriage system, the first set of heads prints the white under base and the second set immediately prints the color layer for quick single-pass printing.

Sharp, Vibrant Images

Amaze your customers with true-to-life flesh tones and eye-catching prints of every color. With a high-accuracy dual carriage system, a minimum ink drop size of 3 pL, precise auto height adjustment for your platen table, and interchangeable magnetic platens, the RICOH Ri 2000 delivers perfectly clean, high-resolution images up to 1200 x 1200 dpi.

'Walk-Up' Ready With Automated Maintenance

While other DTG printers require frequent maintenance, the RICOH Ri 2000 saves you time by automating functions like white ink agitation and self-cleaning. The Ri 2000 also continuously monitors your ink supply, air levels, and dampers. This results in a low-maintenance printer that is ready to print at any time.

Printer Head Cleaning Made Easy

With the RICOH Ri 2000, you no longer need to manually clean your print heads or nozzles. This printer includes an innovative head cleaning jig that cleans the printer heads for you so you do not need to worry about stocking up on swabs and wipes to clean the heads yourself. Just attach the cleaning jig to your printer heads, add cleaning solution, and let the printer handle the rest.

Built-In Interactive Operation Guide With Smart Alerts

To make maintenance even easier, the RICOH Ri 2000 features a built-in Interactive Operation Guide. Accessible through the machine's spacious 7” touchscreen display, the interactive guide provides smart alerts and notifications reminding you when to perform routine manual maintenance so you never have to worry about forgetting crucial maintenance tasks.

Time-Proven Quality & Reliability

The RICOH Ri 2000 offers rugged, industrial-strength steel construction and reliable, time-proven components. The printer’s engine and heads are built to RICOH’s high-quality standards and are thoroughly tested to provide beautifully crisp prints for years to come.

Quick-Change Magnetic Platens and Auto Height Adjustment

With the RICOH Ri 2000, changing platens is easier than it has ever been. Quick-change magnetic platens, available in multiple styles and sizes up to 16" x 19.6", provide a variety of print options and easily snap on and off the machine with virtually no downtime. The dressable platen design also makes garments easier to load, prevents ink bleeds, and helps garments lay flat for higher accuracy when printing. Additionally, the new automatic table height adjustment feature speeds up your workflow and prepares your prints with higher precision, eliminating the possibility of print errors.

Commonly asked questions

Although the RICOH Ri 2000 is incredibly user-friendly, basic computer skills are necessary for the loading and printing of graphics.

Not at all. The RICOH Ri 2000 is compact and clean for optimal use in shops. There is no loose ink and no messy screens to deal with. In addition, the inks are non-toxic and water-based, so they are 100% safe.

Yes, prints need to be heat-cured, as all direct-to-garment and screen printed items do. You can use the Ricoma HP-3838H heat press to heat cure your items.
