RICOH Pro Scanner Option with AI tool helps drive accuracy and efficiency

29 September 2020: Vision system technology has evolved to such an extent that they can approach human performance in identifying details to differentiate individual faces and objects. These technologies have incredible value for production print, helping to improve accuracy, decrease manual touchpoints, and increase efficiencies. When on-site staff may be unavailable, such a tool is incredibly helpful for productivity and business continuity.

That is exactly why Ricoh USA has launched the RICOH Pro Scanner Option. This new system leverages advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to close feedback loops so that production printers are continually improving. RICOH Pro Scanner Option, available for RICOH Pro VC60000 and RICOH Pro VC70000 continuous-feed inkjet platforms, leverages integrated 600 dpi CIS scanners and a control unit for near-real time visibility. This allows for live capture and display of printed images as they move through the press, including the option to replay captured pages and zoom in on them for close examination.

The Pro Scanner Option’s SmartStart capabilities can also help automate a variety of labor- and time-consuming tasks, such as printhead cleaning. Operators can schedule printer-preparation tasks to run when they fit into their workflow, with the option to receive progress notifications every step of the way including prior to starting a shift. From there, the solution carefully measures the results of the task, noting how those results and its methods differed from last time, gradually, intelligently and automatically improving over time.

Mike Herold, Director, Global Marketing, Ricoh, says that the Pro Scanner Option can analyze print samples, enabling print devices to self-assess and make decisions without operator intervention, uncovering new efficiencies and improvements.
