Ricoh launched the Aficio 2232C and 2238C, two printers that will bridge the gap between color and black and white output speeds. The printers are capable of producing black and white pages at 32 and 38 pages per minute respectively but also 24 and 28 pages per minute in full color. Ricoh's machines are the second generation of color capable devices that have been designed to provide businesses with greater levels of output for both color and black and white jobs. The devices bolster Ricoh's range of color capable solutions and sit alongside the highly successful Aficio 1224C and 1232C giving businesses a wider choice of color output. Included in the standard package for both devices are the printer and scanner unit, duplex and by-pass tray in addition to Ricoh's high-end software solutions such as DeskTopBinder V2 Lite, SmartDevice Monitor and WebImageMonitor. Businesses are also able to upgrade the machine's capabilities by adding an optional booklet finisher. Ricoh's color product manager Chris Burdett commented that the machines have been developed with end user requirements at their heart. The color capable concept provides businesses with access to faster color output on what is essentially a black and white machine and the second generation of devices compliment the Aficio 1224C and 1232C. The expansion of the range allows a variety of businesses to undertake color tasks in-house by providing high levels of output for both color and black and white jobs that previously would have been outsourced. The Aficio 2232C and 2238C are priced at £12,995 and £14,995 respectively.
