Be more productive

Take advantage of the familiar controls on our touchscreen operation panel to transition between print tasks with ease. Quickly check important print settings. Plus, you can integrate many of the same workflow software solutions you use on other RICOH devices for seamless connectivity across your entire fleet.

Meet every deadline, every time

You face tight deadlines. The SP C342DN features 2 GB standard RAM and an Intel 1.46GHz processor, so you can print complex jobs at up to 26 color or black-and-white pages per minute (ppm), even in duplex mode. Add an optional 500-sheet paper tray to extend paper capacity to 1,100 sheets and provide three unique paper sources for different media types.

Stay connected with convenient mobile printing

Use AirPrint, Wi-Fi Direct or the RICOH Smart Device Print&Scan app to print from your smartphone, tablet or laptop without software, drivers or utilities. With the optional HDD, you can print digital files from a USB or SD card. Just plug it into the device and print when you're ready. With the wireless LAN options, you can place the printer where it's most convenient. Use the optional second network interface port to share the printer on two networks simultaneously.

Give audiences outstanding quality

Impress any audience with colorful images and precise text at up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. Give your presentations, brochures, proposals and other documents a more professional look for a lasting impression. Use the 100-sheet Bypass Tray for banner printing up to 8.5" x 49.6" and for thicker stocks up to 120 lb. Index.

Reduce print costs

Print in Economy Color Mode to reduce your cost-per-page for draft-ready presentations that require internal review. It uses less toner so you can extend the life of your print cartridges. Take advantage of automatic duplexing to reduce paper usage.

Save your energy for other tasks

The SP C342DN is designed specifically to reduce operating costs. It has a Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) of just 1.6 kWh/week, is ENERGY STAR certified, and meets EPEAT Silver criteria*. Use the Eco-Friendly Indicator to track users' behaviors and encourage responsible printing. When not in use, the printer enters energy-saving Sleep Mode, or you can even program it to power on or off at specific times.
*EPEAT Silver rating is applicable only in the USA.

Keep sensitive information to yourself

Know your target audience - and possible threats. With User Code Authentication, you can prohibit users from using specific print functions, such as color printing, to reduce costs. Take advantage of Unauthorized Copy Control to mask confidential information when unauthorized users try to copy it. Protect data streams with built-in network data encryption. Add the optional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and give every job a password so it stays in queue until you authorize it directly at the device.
