Epson launches revolutionary high-speed Workforce Enterprise printer

March 2017

Superfast, 100 pages per minute, eco-efficient business inkjet printer

SYDNEY, 23 March 2017 – – Epson Australia has launched the next generation of superfast eco-efficient business inkjet printers: the WorkForce Enterprise. This ultra fast 100 page per minute (ppm) departmental colour office A3 printer delivers the ecological benefits that only inkjet technology can offer, providing a low power solution with far fewer supplies than a departmental laser copier. The 100ppm WorkForce Enterprise WF-C20590 is joined by a 75ppm version, the WF-C17590, both designed to meet the needs of departmental office printing in corporates, SMBs 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-maintaining printhead to deliver consistently outstanding print quality 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 printer1 without needing a specialist power supply.

General Manager, Business Division, Epson Australia Craig Heckenberg said, “The WorkForce Enterprise represents a true revolution in office printing. It is so much more than just a printer and in fact, due to its networking capabilities, now represents an integrated document management solution at the heart of any office’s IT infrastructure. This printer also 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, the WorkForce Enterprise will deliver higher reliability and significantly increase printer uptime.”

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 full width linehead design measures just 43mm across and contains approximately 33,500 nozzles that incorporate outstanding nozzle verification and variable size droplet technology designed to eliminate banding. This compact but incredible level of engineering precision not only enhances performance; it also provides speed and reliability for highly productive teams where downtime is not an option.

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.

Australian pricing for the WorkForce Enterprise range is yet to be confirmed but it will be highly competitive with the leading brands in the 50 to 70ppm segment of the office printing market. WorkForce Enterprise will also be available through a range of flexible finance and managed service options to suit individual business requirements. The 100ppm WorkForce Enterprise WF-C20590 will be available from winter 2017 with the 75ppm WF-C17590 to follow.
