The Ricoh Document Center (formerly Georg Kohl) joined the Ricoh-Family in 2011. The core competencies are in transactional print, dialogue mailing, printing forms and data preparation.

Customer requirements in digital color print are a key driver for the innovation coming out of the Ricoh Document Center. The AFP architecture has been making the use of color a reality for more than 25 years. The presentation will give an overview of the current and new AFP Components on which modern print applications and use cases can be developed.
