Pitney Bowes will now offer Riso’s HC5500 color ink-jet printer to U.S. customers. The HC5500 works in conjunction with a broad array of Pitney Bowes products, including its mail management software and inserters, to form a complete “print-to-mail” solution in a cut-sheet environment.
“Our collaboration with Riso is a natural fit with our integrated printing and mailing solutions,” said Mark Pollack, vice president, marketing, U.S. Mailing for Pitney Bowes. “The HC5500 offers our customers a high-speed, low-cost color ink-jet printing solution that can help increase operational efficiency and convenience with the creation and printing of documents in-house with a broad array of Pitney Bowes products.”
Utilizing Riso's FORCEJET printing technology, the HC5500 runs at 120 pages per minute, or 85 #10 envelopes per minute. The printer can handle duplex printing in normal mode up to 92 pages per minute. The low-cost, small-footprint printer has a robust paper handling system for volumes up to 500,000 pages per month.
