TH YOUR VOTE BY MAIL NEEDS Speed and ink were at one time relegated to the offset press. Eighteen years ago, RISO blended the speed and reliability of offset with the digital ease of operation that is inkjet. Today RISO cutsheet inkjet technology delivers variable Data output at 9600 letter size impressions per hour. RISO uses no heat in the printing process, which yields output that is cold, flat, and dry. That is good news for anyone looking to fold and insert the variable data output into an envelope. The no-heat process brings with it the added benefit of being able to run a variety of substrates including treated paper like multi-part NCR. As well, RISO devices will feed and print on envelopes of all sizes and the glue does not impede the printing process at all. In fact, you can trust RISO to print on window envelopes without fear of melting the window inside of the unit.
Envelope speeds vary based on the size but you can expect around 4800 per hour when printing #10. Think of RISO as an affordable Swiss Army Knife; a unit that can work in the mail center or sit inside of the production print center. Whether it’s envelopes, NCR, or bond paper, RISO can provide speed and low operating cost synonymous with inkjet printing technology. Small footprint (5 ft. to start) at an investment that will fit into the tightest budgets.
