Perfect for cost-conscious offices

The device will save you money as Ricoh’s new Quick Start Up (QSU) fusing system reduces Total Electricity Consumption (TEC) values. The on/off timer also cuts energy consumption and costs. The SP 4510SF incorporates the high-performance Ricoh GWNX controller which leads to further cost/time savings, increased operational efficiency, and ultimately reduced Total Cost of Ownership. Automatic duplex printing saves time, paper and cost.

Compact and easy to use

The SP 4510SF has the smallest footprint among mid-range A4 MFPs, so can be easily installed on a desktop or in a corner. Operation is straightforward. Its 4.3-inch colour touch panel has a large, tilting, customisable display and animated menus. Print on paper from 52 to 162 g/m² not only with the bypass tray, but also with the optional paper bank.

The SP 4510SF is available at a surprisingly low initial cost.
