WorkForce Enterprise printer, WF-C20590, prints at breakthrough speeds of up to 100 pages per minute (ppm)
Epson has announced the launch of their first high-speed linehead Multi-Function InkJet printer for enterprise printing in India. The newly launched WorkForce Enterprise printer, WF-C20590, prints at breakthrough speeds of up to 100 pages per minute (ppm). The printer offers one of the fastest speeds in inkjet printing, reinventing business printing in the office and ushering new levels of productivity.
The WorkForce Enterprise printer’s ultra-high capacity ink cartridges yield up to 100,000 pages (2×50,000) in black and 50,000 pages in colour each, enabling uninterrupted downtime and a lower total cost of ownership and greater cost savings. With the high yields and high volumetric efficiency, there is reduced frequency of consumables exchange compared to toner replacements of a laser printer. The high capacity paper feed unit with option for up to 5,350 sheets for input and paper output capabilities of up to 4,000 with the sheet finisher unit support high volume printing.
Commenting on the launch of the printers, Siva Kumar, General Manager, InkJet Printers at Epson India said, “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. The new WorkForce Enterprise printer is a masterpiece that drives productivity while also providing drastic energy savings of up to 75% less power consumption. This printer is the perfect complement to any business infrastructure.”
Epson’s pioneering PrecisionCore linehead technology, a first of a kind innovation measuring at 43mm wide and containing approximately 33,500 nozzles, consists of a fixed print head that prints at ultra-fast speeds of 100ipm for both simplex and duplex. Without the moving print head, banding is now greatly minimized, and prints are of high quality and are laser sharp.
The all-new printing mechanism consists of an electrostatic transport belt in the print pass that ensures the paper is completely flat for stable paper feeding, ensuring the smoothest of gradients and consistently sharp images while delivering at ultra-fast speeds. Due to its stable print feeding and smart design, the printer is able to print on a wide range of paper types of up to 350gsm, including paper of irregular sizes.
The WorkForce Enterprise lowers total cost of ownership due to having fewer moving parts than colour lasers, resulting in fewer components required for standard maintenance and dramatically reduced downtime as well as cost of service. For example, only a set of paper feed rollers will need to be replaced after extended use for the inkjet printer, compared to the multiple fuser, drums, rollers and print head parts of the laser printer, amongst others.
