EPSON HAS launched a new linehead multifunction inkjet printer for enterprise use.
Epson’s WorkForce Enterprise WF-C20590 is a high-speed office printer and copier, which delivers simplex and duplex output at a lower cost and easy maintenance for less downtime, it said.
“The PrecisionCore Line Head WorkForce Enterprise MFP is capable of achieving a blistering 100ppm (pages per minute) in both simplex and duplex modes — matching or surpassing most laser printers. The implications for productivity are obvious — the less time spent waiting for a print or copy job to complete, the more time available for other pressing tasks,” Epson said in a statement.
Unlike a laser printer, Epson said the inkjet WorkForce Enterprise doesn’t need to warm up and starts printing immediately. Because no heat is used in the printing process, its power consumption is as much as 75% lower than an average laser.
Meanwhile, the WorkForce Enterprise’s Precisioncore linehead technology lets it produce consistent image quality at ultra-fast printing speeds.
“The printer’s innovations include an electrostatic transport belt that ensures the paper is always completely flat so that it produces consistently sharp images, and a self-maintaining print head. This latter feature monitors nozzle health and automatically detects and adjusts print head performance, reducing the issue of clogged ink nozzles,” Epson said.
Its cartridges can also print up to 100,000 pages in black and 50,000 pages in color each, reducing the need for constant replacement.
The printer likewise supports a wide range of specialist papers up to 350gsm.
Aside from printing, the multifunction product allows users to copy, scan to email and more, and comes with management tools and security features such as authentication and administrative functions.
