Boost performance, reduce delays

Use the IM 2500 in any classroom or office to print quickly, reliably and economically. Print speeds can reach up to 25 pages per minute (ppm) on up to 11" x 17" media. For digital delivery, use the 220-Sheet Single Pass Document Feeder (SPDF) to scan up to 240 images per minute (ipm). Deliver the files via a wide range of Scan-To capabilities. For optimal uptime, add optional Large Capacity Trays to expand paper capacity to 4,700 sheets.

Gain confidence with hands-free printing

The IM 2500 supports AirPrint® and Mopria® for fast, contactless printing without utilities, drivers or software. Or, print directly from your smartphone or tablet with the Ricoh Smart Device Connector app. Simply place your Android device near the embedded NFC tag, or scan the QR code with your iOS device, to begin. Then, print images, files and more — directly from your personal mobile device with hands-free ease.

Respond deftly, work quickly

Move from one task to the next with effortless convenience via the highly responsive 10.1"-wide Smart Operation Panel. Place apps and widgets prominently, so you can find often-used settings and functions quickly, including one-touch workflows. Use the embedded web browser to find online content, and store them in popular cloud storage services. Print or share that information in an instant via the sleek, highly-efficient touchscreen.

Secure your work, protect your users

Ideal for shared-use campus or office settings, the IM 2500 offers User Authentication, so only authorized users with an approved passcode or billing code can access the device. You can also set print quotas and hold jobs until released by the author. The Ricoh-only operating system offers protection from OS-specific threats and encryption tools help protect data and images. Use RICOH Streamline NX for remote upgrades, tracking and chargebacks.

Finish professionally, impress consistently

Add a crisp and clean professional look to your next project with your choice of optional automated finishers. Use the 1,000-sheet staple or stapleless Hybrid Finisher, 1,000-sheet Booklet Finisher or 500-sheet Internal Finisher to stack, staple and punch presentations and classroom materials. Use the time-saving Multi-Folding Unit for four unique and stylish folding options, including Z-fold, Half Fold, Letter Fold-in and Letter Fold-out.

Be smart, be kind to the environment

The IM 2500 is ENERGY STAR® certified and EPEAT® Gold Rated* with a Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value of 0.29 kWh/week. Program the MFP to shut down during off-peak hours.
