The low-priced master means your price per copy gets lower each time you print a job, making large-volume printing highly economical. Ink costs are low as well.

No Cleaning Needed Afterward

Once you finish using the master, it is easily transferred to a master disposal box. Of course there is no need to clean the drum, so you can quickly move on to your next job.

We have been using RISO digital duplicators in our print shop for a long time and I was impressed to find that RISO had studied the workflow in the printing industry and developed a product that matches that. This printer lets us handle our current workflow without any problem. After all is said and done, the fact that it is easy to operate is very appealing since it is difficult to find highly skilled print technicians. During the trial period, the machine never broke down and never interrupted our work—that high level of reliability is a strong point. We are pleased with the finished product as well. We can proudly present our customers with these products. It will play a major role when we print monthly newspapers, booklets, and forms. We considered our cost performance and business plan carefully, and we chose the RISO A2 in order to improve our work efficiency and improve our customer service. The RISO A2 allows us to respond to a broad range of customer needs, including short delivery times, small lots, and low prices.
