Ricoh is currently one of the few companies that are still in the latex printer market, during FESPA Berlin 2018, they exhibited the Ricoh Pro L4160.
A few months ago this series of printers was presented as the first latex system to achieve global Color-Logic certification. The Ricoh Pro L4100, combined with the ColorGATE Production server software, is now certified for use with the Color-Logic process – a global standard in metallic and decorative-effect color communications for a variety of special-effect printing applications.

Ricoh has been preparing to re-enter the latex printer market for quite some time (the last time we saw a Ricoh latex printer was at drupa 2012), since in FESPA Berlin a new printer was presented, but it does not have a defined model so far, so we hope that we can have more information soon.
”It is Ricoh designed with Ricoh heads, inks, and imaging software ”
