Epson has launched its eco-efficient business inkjet printers, the WorkForce Enterprise, at a launch event in Dubai attended by Epson’s business partners from the region. This ultra fast 100ipm departmental colour office A3 printer delivers the ecological benefits that only inkjet technology can offer, providing a low power solution with fewer supplies at the price of a departmental laser copier.
The WorkForce Enterprise WF-C20590 is joined by a 75ipm version, the WF-C17590, both designed to meet the needs of departmental office printing in corporates and SMEs, especially those that have peaks of high-volume productivity. To further enhance the printer’s quality, Epson has incorporated a number of technology innovations, including a self-repairing printhead to eliminate banding and an electrostatic transport belt to maintain quality at high speed.
What’s more, this new technology delivers a step-change in environmental performance, reducing power usage by up to a staggering 96% compared to the same speed laser printer without needing a specialist power supply. Jason Whiley Director of Sales, Epson Middle East, says, “The WorkForce Enterprise cuts the environmental impact of print by providing a low power solution, with fewer supplies, while delivering remarkably fast print speeds at high quality. Having far fewer parts than equivalent laser-based MFDs, this series promises to deliver higher reliability and significantly increase printer uptime.
“We knew we had something special as soon as we saw the WorkForce Enterprise in the lab, but it has been the reactions from resellers in many countries that has really confirmed the ground-breaking nature of this new range. We took this model on the road to cities across the continent, including Prague, Lille, Athens, Helsinki and many more, to gather vital feedback which has gone into creating the best Epson product possible.”
Despite its energy efficiency, performance is not compromised. The inkjet linehead that delivers very high speeds and print quality is designed around scalable technology that Epson first used in industrial systems, such as large-scale label presses. The remarkable new linehead design, measuring just 43mm wide and containing approximately 33,500 nozzles, offers outstanding misfire detection and variable size droplet technology to reduce banding. This compact but incredible level of detail not only enhances performance; it also provides speed and reliability for highly productive teams where downtime is not an option. A perfect symbiosis of performance and efficiency.
The optional WorkFlow Enterprise Finisher unit enables automatic document finishing, a 5,350-sheet max paper input with optional paper feed and a 4,000-sheet stapler and stacker to improve efficiency, saving time and effort. In addition, these models are compatible with a wide-range of solutions and built for user efficiency smart device mobile printing and scanning with NFC. Tools and software such as Email Print for Enterprise, Epson Print Admin and Document Capture Pro add additional functionality – more than just print and scan.
