Send a strong message about security

Hold everybody accountable in shared-use campuses and offices with User Authentication. It restricts access only to users with approved passcodes or billing codes. Pair the IM 3500 with RICOH Streamline NX for remote updates, tracking, reporting, charge-backs and more. The MFP encrypts data and overwrites latent images on the hard drive automatically. Plus, it has a Ricoh-only operating system which deters OS-specific threats.

Look like a professional

Choose from a wide range of automated finishers for a more professional, finished look. Automate stacking, stapling, punching and folding with your choice of an optional 1,000-sheet staple or stapleless Hybrid Finisher, 1,000-sheet Booklet Finisher or 500-sheet Internal Finisher. Plus, you can use a Multi-Folding Unit for even more options, including four folding styles.

Be smart, energy-wise

The IM 3500 is ENERGY STAR® certified and EPEAT® Gold Rated* with a Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value of 0.41 kWh/week. Program the MFP to power off when the office is closed. Track paper usage and savings with the Eco-Friendly Indicator. Boost recycling efforts through the Ricoh Cartridge Return Program.
