I think they use there own firmware not the ricoh firmware.. not sure however.. I think this printer goes for 70,000 dollarsI just saw the video from the lawson express jet dtg
I must say I am dissapointed with the print speed. Either those guys do not know how to use their own printer or the machine is way too slow. When printing the underbase, the printer does like 5 pases before moving the platen!
if you watch the ricoh gx7000 print it is much faster the the epson.. in fact there are charts of the print times in comparrison to epson formats up to 4800 on condees site... i think the charts showed that the ricoh prints in 44 seconds what the epson prints in over three minutes..
the big deal is the clogging issue.. if it doesnt clog its worth everybit of it...
I would however like to see the 1100 white ink test results before diving in another brand printer..
