    Stay focused on your audience

    • Capture attention by giving your audience the information it wants, in the format it prefers. Create compelling, full-color documents with 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution without compromising print speed. Take advantage of a wide range of media options to toggle between postcards, letters or documents up to 8.5” x 14”. With a maximum capacity of up to 1,350 sheets, you can complete more jobs and share them with your audience with fewer delays.

    Bring faster workflows closer

    • There’s great information behind every smart decision. With the convenient, easy-to-use 10.1” Super VGA Smart Operation Panel, you can use one-touch controls — including Quick Copy, Quick Scan and Quick Fax options— to share information in fewer steps.

    Put your touch on every project

    • Use the same drag-and-drop, pinch-and-flick and swipe scrolling you use every day on your smartphones and tablets to manage jobs, information and tasks with ease. Create shortcut icons for frequently run jobs and minimize repetitive steps. Add widgets for a quick monitoring of device settings, toner levels, energy usage and more, so you can make faster, more informed workflow decisions.

    Work on anything, from anywhere

    • You never know when — or where — your next big idea will arrive. With optional Hotspot mobile printing, you can print from any mobile platform with Wi-Fi or internet access. You can also download the RICOH Smart Device Connector app to your personal device to connect directly to the MP C406 for fast, easy printing and scanning on the go.

    Keep information where it belongs

    • With user authentication, users can only access MFP controls and release print jobs after entering a passcode or swiping an identity card at the device with the optional card reader. Restrict color printing to specific users or departments to reduce costs, or set print quotas to reduce extraneous printing and help minimize waste.

    Conserve energy with every job

    • Go from Sleep Mode to your first print in only 8 seconds to avoid annoying, costly delays. Use Silent Mode to minimize sound and distractions for you and your coworkers. Program the device to power off/on automatically, so it’s always ready when you are — without wasting energy when you’re out of the office. Plus, the system is ENERGY STAR® certified and meets EPEAT® Gold* criteria, which helps you meet your sustainability goals. 

      *EPEAT rating is applicable only in the USA.
