Product Development for Lower Environmental Burden

The environment was a major consideration when RISO developed the ComColor printers and RISO digital duplicators.

ComColor, Environmentally friendly and User friendly

ComColor is RISOfs high-speed color inkjet printer. Printing takes only about half the time of a typical high speed color multi-function printer using toner. The FW Series was selected for the award, because it was recognized for reducing the amount of TVOC(Total Volatile Organic Compound) emissions to provide a safe and comfortable printing environment, and for being the first product to be given the Blue Angel certification utilizing the mutual recognition agreement between the Eco Mark (Japan) and the Blue Angel (Germany).

The ORPHIS FWseries is a brand for RISO full-color high-speed inkjet printers in Japanese domestic market.


RISO digital duplicator consumes little power even while printing A3 size

RISO digital duplicator is a printer using the stencil printing method. It works by piercing a printing stencil plate with holes and passing ink through the holes to transfer an image onto paper.
The RISO digital duplicator consumes only about 200 W*2 of power even while printing A3 size. For large-volume printing, the RISO digital duplicator consumes less energy than copiers that use heat to affix toner to each page.

RISOGRAPH's environmental performance

*1 Equivalent power consumption per printed sheet; i.e., the productfs typical weekly electricity consumption (TEC value) divided by the number of sheets printed that week. Every model in the ComColor Series offers a TEC value under 8 kWh.
*2 RZ Series. When printing 100 sheets/minute. Results may vary depending on printing environment.
