Epson Philippines launches new Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) Business Inkjet printers, the WorkForce Pro WF-C869R and the company’s first high-speed linehead Multi-Function inkjet printer for enterprise printing, the WorkForce Enterprise series, WF-C20590 and WF-C17590.
“The development of this new category of printers was initiated after a thorough study of the needs and concerns of the medium to large enterprise segment. Major factors that enterprises always consider are speed, quality and running cost. In addition to that, Epson has looked into how to significantly reduce power consumption, use fewer parts for less maintenance and enhance document security. That is why Epson made precise innovations to ensure that each detail of the product really makes a difference in addressing these concerns,” explains Mr. Ed Bonoan, Senior General Manager and Marketing Head, Epson Philippines.
WF-C20590 and WF-C17590
The two Epson Business Inkjet Printer models, WF-C20590 and WF-C17590 feature the company’s most advanced inkjet technology, the PrecisionCore Linehead. The tech makes high speed printing possible, while ensuring premium quality with its dot precision, sharp text, and fine lines.
Epson’s PrecisionCore linehead technology measures in at 43mm wide, containing approximately 33,500 nozzles, consists of a fixed printhead that prints at ultra-fast speeds of 100ipm for both simplex and duplex. The fixed print head minimizes banding, allowing prints to come out with higher quality and sharpness.
The enterprise printer also uses ultra-high capacity ink cartridges that yield up to 100,000 pages in black and 50,000 pages in colour each. With such high yields, companies can save more on toner replacement.
WorkForce Pro WF-C869R
Another product launched is the enhanced RIPS WorkForce Pro WF-C869R. It also uses Epson’s PrecisionCore technology that consistently produce quality prints with low running costs, allowing up to 86,000 pages in black or 84,000 pages in color prints.
The WorkForce Pro WF-C869R uses less consumables and packaging waste compared to laser printers, which help to maintain office productivity with less printer maintenance and downtime. The ultra long-life consumables of the WF-C869R only require periodic replacement and consist of the ink packs, maintenance box and paper pick-up rollers, compared to the laser printer consumables which consist of toner cartridges, photoreceptor, waste toner box, transfer units and fusing units.
The WorkForce Pro WF-C869R is now available in all authorized Epson corporate resellers nationwide with a suggested retail price (SRP) of Php152,500 while the prices for the WorkForce Enterprise series, the WF-C20590 and WF-C17590 are still to be announced. The WorkForce Enterprise series will also be sold through authorized Epson corporate resellers nationwide within this year.
