Fast print speed without sacrificing quality

If speed is a priority, the Ricoh SP 4520DN Black & White Printer features a nimble robust controller and powerful processor to manage more jobs, from more users, simultaneously. Recover from sleep mode in less than 10 seconds. Print up to 42ppm. Expect crisp 1,200 dpi resolution, even at top output speeds. Plus, add additional paper feed units — without expanding your footprint — to increase paper capacity to 1,600 sheets for longer print runs with less effort.

Mobile printing for modern business

Get the most out of your mobile data with the RICOH Smart Device Connector app. Use your Apple® iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ mobile device to print images, documents, photographs and more when connected to an office network —without installing print drivers. Have portable media? Print it directly using a USB stick or the standard SD Card slot for easy walk-up print jobs.

Personalize your workflow

Printing shouldn't be complicated. The tiltable 4.3" color touch-screen control panel makes it easy to customize your home screen and add shortcuts to frequently performed tasks. You can also use the control panel to check system status at a glance, or navigate easily between key functions. Add the optional web browser to access web pages directly, and print them for faster turnarounds.

Lock it down

Protect your critical information with advanced controller capabilities, and add the optional 320-GB hard disk drive to simplify how you secure, store and archive documents. The Locked Print feature offers PIN protection, or ID card protection with optional ID card reader. The DataOverwriteSecurity System helps prevent information theft, interception and falsification by automatically deleting temporary files.

Printer management tools optimize performance

Compare the Ricoh SP 4520DN black and white to other printers in your fleet while also checking paper, toner levels and more with Ricoh Device Manager NX. Use Ricoh Web Image Monitor to manage print queues and change settings. Plus, oversee device usage data using Ricoh @Remote tool to proactively optimize print performance.
