      Office/business printing

      Ricoh's inkjet technology development team started out focusing on the creation of a business inkjet printer - one that is fast, supports plain paper printing, and operates at low cost per page. The development yielded a bi-pitch laminated piezo actuator. This technology is the foundation of the heads used in Ricoh's inkjet product portfolio.
