Print with low energy consumption
Since the RISOGRAPH does not use toner, it does not need a heater for applying the toner with heat. It can be used immediately after turning on the power, and power consumption is kept low. Also, because RISO GRAPH prints at high speed, the duration of electricity usage is shortened. In addition, RISOGRAPH comes with an energy-saving mode with features such as “Auto shut off function,” which automatically turns off the power after a certain time period, and “Auto sleep function” which automatically puts the device into hibernation while the power is turned on.
Equipped with ink saving mode
By setting RISOGRAPH to “Ink Saving Mode,” it is possible to reduce the amount of ink used by approximately 20%*1while keeping the required print quality (except when printing out data originals).
- *1:Ink saving depends on various conditions such as print mode and material to be printed.
Rice ink using rice bran oil (black)
RISO adopts rice ink (black) using rice bran oil. Because we use rice bran from domestically produced rice, the transport distance of the raw materials necessary for ink production is shorter than soybean oil ink using mass-imported soybeans from overseas, and transport-related CO2 emissions are greatly reduced. In addition, rice ink does not easily deteriorate over time, reducing alteration of printed parts, and extending the recommended expiry date.
Rice ink (RISO ink F type black) has acquired the “Rice Ink Mark” and “Vegetable Oil Ink Mark”.
