SINGAPORE - Epson introduced four new high performance business printer models designed to help customers lower their operational expenses by offering among the lowest costs per page in their respective classes.
In 2010, Epson committed to growing its sales and presence in business printing by introducing various inkjet models with very low cost per page. This includes Epson B-series inkjets for workgroups in medium to enterprise-sized businesses.
This year, Epson has expanded its low running cost business printer range to provide business customers with new capabilities:
Epson’s first monochrome inkjet printers in over 15 years that offer customers with small workgroups who only need monochrome printing lower cost per page, higher performance, and more features than similarly priced monochrome laser printers.
Epson’s new high performance inkjet printers that offer even lower cost per page than the Epson ME Office series. This series has built-in networking and is designed for workgroup use.
The high performance Epson K-series printers offer the printing speed and text quality of a monochrome laser printer, with extremely low running cost of only SGD 0.015 per page features that are not found in laser printers of their price range print on various types of media.
Offering a class-leading cost per page (cpp) of only as low as SGD 0.02(1) cents for monochrome prints and less than SGD 0.10 cents cost per page for full colour prints, together with high printing performance, high duty cycles and networking, the Epson “WorkForce Pro” is a brand new series of business colour inkjet printers that have been designed specially to help SMBs to enterprise departmental workgroups lower their running costs without compromising on productivity.
In addition to extremely low cost per page, the Epson WorkForce printer series offers high printing performance of 16 pages per minute (ppm) for black and 11ppm for colour; and the fastest duplex printing speed in its class of 9.2ppm for black and 7.1ppm for colour according to the ISO 24734 standard.
To fulfill its role as a heavy duty SMB / department workgroup printer, the printers also offer features like a high monthly duty cycle of 20,000 pages, integrated networking and a total paper capacity of 580 pages (with optional 250 page paper tray). The Epson WorkForce Pro series also supports image and PDF file printing from mobile devices via Apple’s AirPrint or Epson’s own iPrint app (Apple and Android versions available).
