The RICOH MP W7100/MP W8140 is ideal for architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) firms who are looking to manage wide-format output with ease from a single multifunction device with a compact footprint while keeping more mid-volume, wide-format projects in house. Users can simply walk up and print up to 14 D-size wide format monochrome documents per minute, or scan full color originals and send to recipients with the press of a button. An intuitive 9-inch color VGA operation touch panel enables users to take advantage of thumbnail previews and check their work to avoid any errors before sharing it with colleagues and clients.
