ComColor® X1 9150

The World’s Fastest Full Color Cut-Sheet Inkjet Printer*

Providing spot and full color documents at a print speed of 150 pages per minute, the RISO ComColor X1 9150 is the fastest printer of its kind. Designed for all your professional needs, it delivers long-running reliability and a profitable advantage in mid- to high-volume print environments. The ComColor X1 9150 combines high productivity with low running costs, increased reliability and superior performance.


The RISO ComColor 9150 can print 1,000 full color single-sided pages in approximately 6.5 minutes. Engineered for high-production environments, with a duty cycle of 500,000 prints per month, the 9150 is highly reliable and built to last.

Reduced Costs

To minimize ink consumption and maintain optimal print quality, RISO’s standard color profile intelligently controls the quantity of ink drops used for each individual color, according to the paper type, to effectively reproduce the original image.

Superior Simplicity

With improved performance and functions, ComColor provides convenience and simplicity for the user. Color LCD touch screen, easy-to-change ink cartridges, and direct printing from a USB flash drive make operation a breeze.

Superior Quality

Newly developed ink technology for the ComColor X1 series reduces ink see-through and improves black ink density. Envelope printing is improved with an enhanced paper feeding mechanism for reliable envelope handling, and a new image processing printer driver function for enhanced image quality.

Eco-Friendlier Than Ever

RISO ComColor 9150 reduces power consumption to an all-time low with the introduction of an automatic power shut-off, using even less power than previous models. All ComColor machines are ENERGY STAR® certified, and boast many other energy-efficient innovations. The ComColor technology is truly green.

Increased Capabilities

Productivity-enhancing accessories automate your workflow from start to finish. Use the built-in GDI print controller for efficient processing of most print jobs, or add the IS900C, an Adobe® PostScript® 3TM controller for graphic-intensive jobs. High-capacity feeding and stacking, and various finishing options streamline production, and eliminate the need for outsourcing.

Efficient Data Processing

Various functions are available, such as form printing (for combining data to a saved form), header/footer function (for adding page numbers or text), merge function (for combining various saved data into one job) and tray select function (for selecting trays per page).

Streamline Workflows

Maximize the X1’s high speed printing performance with in-line systems for perfect bound on-demand book printing, or printing inserts enclosed in a sealed and addressed envelope. Available only for the 9150 and 7150.

Easy Installation

Unlike many printers, the X1 series does not require a dedicated 220V power circuit to run. Running on a standard 110V outlet, and small enough to fit just about anywhere, the 9150 delivers high performance in a fraction of the space required by other printers.
