Features of RISO ME and SE Series

1) Processing dual-color and mono-color printing

RISO ME Series incorporates two equipped drums, enabling easy switching between dual-color and mono-color printing with the press of the Mode button according to the print task. Print speed of up to 150ppm*1 enables handling of a wide range of print jobs.

2) Print speeds up to 185ppm, the highest in the industry

At 185ppm*1, RISO SE Series boasts the highest print speed in the industry, enabling users to produce meeting documents, educational materials and other materials faster than ever before.

3) New RISO HG Master for high-resolution printing

To enable high-speed printing with finespun resolution, RISO focused on ink permeability on paper to develop an innovative new master. RISO HG Master* overlays a fine-filter layer over the existing standard layer in the previous master. This two-layer structure improves uniformity of ink transfer, enabling fine color gradations and finely detailed reproduction.
* RISO HG Master is in compatible with RISO ME 6 Series.

4) A4/Letter drum achieves high-efficiency printing (option)

For printing originals of size A4 or smaller, the newly added A4/Letter drum newly supports digital duplicators with two equipped drums. This drum uses consumables more efficiently than the A3-sized drum or Ledger-sized drum, minimizing running cost.

5) Eco Mode for reduced power consumption

Eco Mode function is available on RISO SE Series that enables printing with reduced power consumption. By turning down the brightness of the LCD panel and decreasing the printing pressure, Eco Mode reduces power consumption*2 during printing by 2% compared with normal operation.

6) Color universal design

The color scheme adopted in the parts, labels and other features of these Series are designed to be easy to distinguish and understand regardless of individual differences in sense of color. These printers are certified for color universal design by the Color Universal Design Organization, an NPO established in Japan.

7) Wide range of color variations

In addition to 21 basic colors of RISO INK E TYPE, a soybean-oil-based ink (soy ink), RISO offers a lineup of 50 custom colors, enabling a new level of color diversity and individual expression. According to customer preference, RISO can also create special order-made colors*3, for use in applications such as corporate color schemes.

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
