Epson has further reinforced its commitment to sustainable business solutions with the launch of 7 new WorkForce devices, all powered by its ultra-efficient PrecisionCore heat-free print technology.

The new range starts with the compact WorkForce Pro WF-878R desktop printer, ideal as either the main print device for smaller businesses or as a workgroup device for larger business and culminates with the WorkForce Enterprise WF-C21000, an ultra-fast 100 ppm device designed to handle large print volumes and tight deadlines.

“Business inkjet is expected to account for over 40% of developed business print solutions within the next five years,” Epson Australia MD Craig Heckenberg says.

“As a result Epson has taken steps to now to help the market with its requirements in this area, placing particular emphasis on heat-free and energy efficient solutions. These new products perfectly position us and our channel partners for future growth as they provide a sustainable, economical print solutions for organisations that are becoming increasingly aware of their carbon footprint, while at the same time seeking ways to reduce operating expenses.

The WorkForce Pro WF-C878R, WF-C878RTC, WF-C879R and WF-C879RTC models deliver enviable price performance.

Extraordinarily high ink yields delivering up to 86,000 pages in black and up to 50,000 pages in colour mean minimal staff disruptions to attend any of the devices and, combined with aggressive price points, present a very compelling lower cost of ownership proposition.

The printers also offer quick print times with the WorkForce Enterprise WF-C20600 at 60 ppm, WF-C20750 at 75 ppm, and WF-C21000 hitting 100 ppm.

Finishing options include offset finishing and stapling, booklet-making and automatic hole-punch for a total print solution.

Where organisations are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, meet their corporate social responsibility objectives, or just play their part in reducing CO2 emissions, these new Epson devices are the ideal choice to help address all of these goals and more.

Epson PrecisionCore Heat-Free print technology uses no heat in the printing process and up to 87% less energy to print a page than a comparable laser-based device.

This energy saving translates into reduced CO2 emissions and directly reduces printer-related electricity costs.

The new range of Epson WorkForce Pro and Enterprise business print devices will be available to Australian customers from April 2020. Purchase prices start from $4,995+GST.

No news yet when the printers will be available to New Zealand customers.
