Product Overview

The new MP 6055 Series joins the MP 2555 Series in Ricoh’s black-and-white MFP lineup. This series consist of three devices, which offers standard printing, copying and scanning and optional faxing.

First, there is the MP 4055 ($12,619), which copies and prints at 40ppm. It has a first-page-out time of 7.9 seconds. Then, there is the MP 5055 ($15,169) that runs at 50ppm and has a first-page-out time of 8.2 seconds. And finally, there is the MP 6055 ($19,495) that has a print/copy speed of 60ppm and a first-page-out time of 8.7 seconds.

All three MFPs include a 1.46GHz processor, 2GB of memory and a 320GB hard drive. There is also a 10.1″ full-color Smart Operation Panel with commonly-accessed workflows displayed as icons. Users can swipe through, drag and drop or pinch and flick through the screens, much like a smartphone or tablet. Workflows can be customized by downloading them from the Ricoh  app site.

More details on the paper-handling and other features are in our Features section below.

The MP 6055 Series continue Ricoh’s tradition of providing strong features for larger companies that require a multifunctional device but not color output.

Features

Paper handling: Each device starts with a set of two 550-sheet trays and a 100-sheet bypass for a capacity of 1,200 sheets. There are a few optional trays that maxes out at a capacity of 4,700 sheets: a 550-sheet tray, another set of two 550-sheet trays, a tandem large capacity tray that totals 2,000 sheets and a 1,500-sheet large capacity tray. All trays support up to 11″ x 17″ paper size with the exception of the bypass, which accepts up to 12″ x 18″.

The MP 6055 Series also includes a single-pass duplexing document feeder with a 220-sheet capacity.

Standard output capacity is 500 sheets. There are several finishing options. First, there is an internal finisher with a 500-sheet capacity and a 50-sheet multiposition stapling. A 2/3-hole punch can be added to the finisher.

Then, there is also a hybrid stapleless and stapling finisher. It has a 1,000-sheet capacity, 50-sheet multiposition stapling and the ability to stack stapleless of up to 5 sheets. A 2/3-hole punch is also available as a separate option.

And finally, there is the 3,000-sheet stapling finisher with 50-sheet multiposition stapling. A 2/3-hole punch unit can be optionally added to either finisher.

Other options include a 250-sheet internal shift-sort tray, a 125-sheet single-bin tray and a multi-folding unit.

Shortcomings

While Ricoh offers a standard PostScript emulation, the Adobe PostScript 3 version is only available as an option.

Also, there is no color printing or copying. Larger companies that require this feature can look at our other Ricoh reviews, such as the MP C6004 Series.
