Epson launches breakthrough high-speed linehead inkjet Multi-Function Printer for enterprises
Epson’s new WorkForce Enterprise series, the WF-C20590 and WF-C17590, promises a high-speed linehead Multi-Function inkjet printer for enterprise that prints up to 100 pages per minute (ppm), one of the fastest speeds in inkjet printing.
Ushering a new level of productivity, Epson’s PrecisionCore linehead technology consist of 43mm wide and containing approximately 33,500 nozzles and a fixed print head that prints at 100ipm for both simplex and duplex. The fixed print head allows minimal banding and the prints are of high quality and laser sharp.
The new series also comes with an electrostatic transport belt that ensures stable paper feeding and sharp image printing at an ultra fast speed. The printer is also able to print on various paper types up to 350gsm.
Productivity wise, The WorkForce Enterprise series saves 75% less power1 consumption when copying. Since no heat is involved in the printing process with the PrecisionCore Thin Film Piezo technology, printing at 100ppm uses 1.2kWh, and the warm up time is minimal.
The ultra-high capacity ink cartridges can yield up to 100,000 pages in black and 50,000 pages in colour each2, reducing the frequency replacing the consumables. For high volume printing, the paper feed unit has an option of up to 5,350 sheets for input and 4,000 paper output capabilities.
The WorkForce Enterprise printer’s DURAbrite Pro inks delivers professional high quality prints and are fade-resistant, water-resistant and fast-drying for high speed printing.
Due to having fewer moving parts than colour lasers, it reduces cost of service. “With the revolutionary WorkForce Enterprise printer, we are bringing high-speed, high-productivity printers that deliver outstanding quality inkjet printing to enterprises, while helping companies lower total cost of ownership. We see inkjet as the future of business printing and this year to be the tipping point as many more businesses make the switch away from laser. And the WorkForce Enterprise printers will be the catalyst for this,” said Cherry Suarez, Product Manager for Business Inkjets, Epson Philippines.
