ComColor® Inkjet Printers
Printers for Endless Possibilities
Proprietary ink and color profile development enable high quality at low running cost. Short printing time means reduced labor and electricity costs.
Piezo drop-on-demand print heads provide fast-drying oil-based ink for minimal bleeding and smearing. New, higher black density improves visibility with a resolution of 600dpi.
The FT5231 can accommodate lightweight to heavyweight paper, as well as envelopes. 46gsm-400gsm (when optional accessories attached).
The optional PS kit supports a variety of operating systems, and PDF files can be printed directly from USB flash drives, while RISO Print-S application allows printing from smart devices. ComColor FT5231 offers reliable support for any work environment.
New features allow you to automatically power the machine on and off at specified times. Up to 10 sets of combinations of start or end time and day of the week can be registered. Users can also set when the printer enters Sleep Mode after the last print job, further decreasing power consumption. This mode keeps power consumption to a miniscule 4W, further enhancing savings on electricity bills. All ComColor machines are ENERGY STAR® certified, and boast many other energy-efficient innovations.
With a print speed of 120 ppm, duplex scanning and a rich feature set, ComColor FT5231 brings a new level of productivity to any workplace. You'll also appreciate its modest footprint - the ideal choice where space is at a premium. Affordable on-demand, full-color printing ensures smooth operation to increase efficiency.
Stable paper feeding ensures the reliable performance necessary for high-speed printing. Paper-feed speed is intelligently controlled, according to how much ink is emitted from the print head. Multiple sensors help ensure high levels of reliability. Instant-drying ink complements the high-speed, duplex printing capability. This specially developed, oil-based ink is also fade-resistant and water-resistant, and minimizes paper curling.
The optional Scanner HS7000 can save scanned data over the network to a PC, as an attachment to e-mail, or onto a hard disk of a networked RISO machine. Multi-page documents can be saved in PDF format as either separate files or combined into one file. Documents can be saved as PDF, TIFF, JPEG and PDF/A (suitable for long-term storage) formats.
An easy-to-view touch panel with instantly recognizable color icons makes printer operation simple for anyone. The tilt panel ensures excellent viewing at any angle up to 90 degrees, expanding installation flexibility. Scan preview windows show scanned images before saving data, ensuring less scan failures. For added convenience when printing and copying, frequently used functions can be saved as Favorites.
