ComColor® GL9730

Best-in-Class, High-Speed Color Inkjet Printer

Printed materials for business require quick turnaround and superior accuracy, and must meet high quality standards in a highly cost-efficient manner. You need a machine that not only delivers high-speed printing at a high level of quality, but a machine that can operate continuously, allows you to produce a broad range of materials and publications, and makes it easy for you to intelligently manage a host of jobs. RISO satisfies all of these needs—and more—with the GL Series.

Space-, Time-, and Cost-Efficient Operation

GL Series printers are unparalleled in the industry, handling high-volume printing at high speed. They offer impressive reliability that belies their compact stature. And they have the flexibility to handle short-run transactional printing. A single high-speed GL Series inkjet printer can easily execute jobs that previously required multiple MFPs.

Unique Inkjet Technology and Cold, Dry, Flat Output

You can transition rapidly to post-printing processing, as printouts are delivered flat and free of static. And GL Series printers are compatible with a vast range of paper sizes, types, and thicknesses, allowing you to produce everything from books to cards and envelopes.

Optional Accessories Takes Flexibility to New Levels

Select one of our dedicated post-printing finisher units to create the machine configuration that best suits your needs and maximizes the value of GL Series printers’ high speed. Employing a finisher unit enables the automation of the entire process, from printing through post-printing. And a high-speed data processing RIP streamlines production printing operations.

Low Environmental Impact

GL Series printers consume relatively little power per sheet, despite printing at such high speeds. And CO2 and ozone emissions are also extremely low.

Start Fast and Stay Fast

RISO has equipped GL Series printers with its proprietary inkjet printing technology featuring a unique inkjet printhead, and a high-capacity SSD for fast, complex data processing and high-speed simplex and duplex printing. The first print is executed in 5 seconds or less. And printing continues at high speed, even with high text and image volume.

Stable Paper Feed

RISO’s own FORCEJET engine technology detects paper transport status in real time, making possible extremely high positional accuracy. It affords you the freedom to print on a host of different paper sizes, types, and thicknesses.
