On the back of Ricoh releasing two, color laser multifunction printers in August 2020, Apex Microelectronics (Apex) has been quick to provide an aftermarket solution for those remanufacturing the empty cartridges.

The Ricoh IM C530F and IM C530FB have been shipped and are being sold into Europe and the United States. Ricoh claims these devices deliver brilliant color output at up to 55 pages per minute. The new series can digitize and share documents quickly with advanced scanning or paperless faxing, making the office more efficient.

In response and within a month, China-based Apex has researched and developed and manufactured a chip that Apex claims is:

  • first-to-market
  • consistent in performance
  • easy to install in recycled cartridges

A spokesperson at Apex said, “We can help you seize market opportunities by providing you with the first-to-market replacement chips solution for Ricoh IM C530 series. You’re welcome to contact us and ask for product samples.”
