RISO Drums

The RISO drum is the part of the digital duplicator where the coloured ink is transferred to the paper.

RISO inks and consumablesSome duplicators have one drum. Having a single drum however, doesn’t limit you to single colour printing. Instead, you can send the paper through once for one colour to be printed, and then change the drum to a different colour and pass the paper through again.

Some duplicators have two drums, enabling you to produce two colour prints at the touch of a button.


RISO Masters

RISO masters are developed specifically for the RISO printing process and are a key component of a RISO digital duplicator. A master works in the following way: a document is either scanned or sent via a computer to the duplicator, the document is then digitally reproduced onto a master sheet. The master sheet is then wrapped around an ink drum, which turns at high speed. A sheet of paper passes underneath the ink drum producing prints.

RISO inks and consumablesThe master can be used multiple times, so the same document can be ‘duplicated’ hundreds or even thousands of times, at speeds of up to 185ppm (the standard printer is about 30-40ppm).
