Ricoh Canada (Mississauga, Ontario) has partnered with Toronto’s Ryerson University to drive greater print innovation within the university’s creative and graphic communications programs. “By integrating its Commercial and Industrial Print (CIP) technology into the general programs for the Faculty of Communication and Design (FCAD), Ricoh is committed to nurturing the graphic arts capabilities of both students and faculty alike,” said the OEM. The installation of Ricoh’s Pro TF6250 Wide Format UV LED Printer at Ryerson University’s Creative Technology Lab at FCAD, represents a joint effort towards redefining graphics expertise and knowledge within the creative, technical and business fields. The OEM will also collaborate and host joint workshops showcasing real-life applications (both on-site and remotely), while providing hands-on experience using their leading CIP technology and services. The Ricoh Pro TF6250 will enable students to digitally produce a vast range of products on rigid substrates up to 4.3″ thick – including foamcore, wood, metal, acrylic, glass and more. Its CMYK-plus-dual-white or white-plus-clear and primer configurations can address unique workflow and application needs. The Pro TF6250 will fit seamlessly into Ryerson’s Graphic Communications Management (GCM) curriculum, allowing students to create and print rich course content, materials, samples and much more.
As Canada’s only degree-granting program for print and packaging design, Ryerson University’s GCM is a leader in its field and one of the few internationally acclaimed schools recognized for developing new talent for the printing industry. Through its strong links with industry influencers and strategic partners around the world, this recent partnership signifies an opportunity for both Ricoh and Ryerson to remain at the forefront of the media, design and creative industries.
