Color Laser Printer

Turn light production into a heavy advantage

  •   Prints up to 45 ppm
  •   1200x1200 dpi max print resolution
  •   Paper capacity up to 4,700 pages
  •   Use intuitive touchscreen to produce professional prints in house

Speed turnarounds, satisfy customers

Get more information out by keeping the work in. Use the
SP C840DN Color Laser Printer to produce professional-quality color documents in-house and avoid outsourcing delays and costs. Produce up to 45 pages per minute (ppm), even in duplex mode, so your audience has critical information when they need it most. Reload paper and replace toner and drums in moments without technical assistance.

Compel with quality color

Impress audiences with professional prints at up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. Take advantage of our proprietary toner technology to produce postcards, brochures, labels and point-of-sale displays with clearer images in more brilliant colors. Preview your work on the touchscreen and make adjustments to avoid costly reruns.

Add impact with more media

Make information more powerful by presenting it more ways. Use up to six paper sources to print personalized envelopes, banners up to 49.6" long, thick postcards, oversized booklets and more with speed and precision. Extend paper capacity to 4,700 sheets for longer runs. Add crop marks and color bars on SRA/12.6" prints for more precise proofing.

Finish in style, in house

Choose between multiple automated finishing options. Use the Internal Multi-Fold Unit to produce a variety of professional folding patterns, including tri-fold, A3 Z-fold and V-folds, to impress clients and reduce outsourcing costs. Simplify other tasks, including saddle-stitching, hole-punching and booklet-finishing. Add the optional 1,000-Sheet Hybrid Staple + Stapleless Finisher for any document set. Use the 4-Bin Mailbox to separate output. Avoid interruptions and delays with the Attention Light, which visually alerts you to changes in the printer status for prompt attention.

Get personal, stay productive

The 10.1" all-digital Smart Operation Panel simplifies everyday workflows, so you can use the same finger movements you use on your smartphone or tablet to access critical information and perform print tasks with ease. Choose from multiple user interfaces. Enhance productivity by downloading apps from the Ricoh Application Site. You can even create one-touch iconic workflow shortcuts.

Integrate software, improve workflow

Use the Smart Operation Panel along with Ricoh or third-party workflow software solutions to simplify even your most complex print tasks. For example, you can choose RICOH Streamline NX to enhance document processes, or Nuance® Output Manager™ to automate how you manage paper and electronic files.

Work on the run

Download the RICOH Smart Device Connector app and print directly from your smartphone or tablet. Use your device or the printer’s built-in web browser to access information from cloud applications such as Google Drive™ or Dropbox™. Give visitors the freedom to print — with an optional, additional network port, you can assign guests to print securely from a secondary network.

Track users, devices and protect information

Take advantage of user authorization to track specific users and projects. Restrict access to color printing for only those who need it. Set print quotas. Add optional software such as Ricoh Device Manager NX Accounting for chargebacks. Simplify fleet management, including automated meter reads, with RICOH® @Remote™ Office NX. Use Locked Print to hold prints until authorized users are ready to retrieve them.

Make energy savings your responsibility

The SP C840DN is ENERGY STAR™ certified and offers Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) of 1.7 kWh/week. Reduce costs even more with default duplex printing, and take advantage of Sleep Mode when the printer’s not in use.
