Epson Launches New WorkForce Printers
April 1, 2016
A recognized leader in business imaging, Epson America, Inc. has now announced new additions to its WorkForce Pro line of business inkjets with the introduction of the WorkForce Pro® WF-M5694 multifunction printer and the WorkForce Pro® WF-M5194single function monochrome printers which are aimed at small networked workgroups. Each unit is driven by Epson’s award-winning PrecisionCore® technology which enables each to provide the lowest cost monochrome printing in their respective classes, according to the release. Among options for consumables are 10,000 page replacement cartridges as well as paper capacities up to 580 sheets with the purchase of additional paper trays. Also included in the features are built-in IT administrative tools including a variety of security features and network configuration tools.
According to Larry Trevarthen, director, Business Imaging, Epson America, Inc., "By expanding Epson?s portfolio to incorporate monochrome printing solutions, we are able to provide a portfolio to resellers and IT managers to meet a full range of their office printing needs at an affordable operating cost. The WorkForce Pro monochrome printer family is another step in our commitment to provide businesses with printing alternatives that can provide dramatic savings against alternative options, including laser printers."
The WorkForce Pro M5000-Series provides a means for users to operate more efficiently at a lower cost with print speeds of up to 20 ISO ppm. Both units can quickly and easily be integrated into existing print environments that are either wired or wireless with Universal print drivers and support for PCL and PostScript® printing. In terms of security, the units can be configured for PIN-based confidential job release and user access control. The multifunction WF-M5694 also offers automatic two-sided printing, copying, scanning, and faxing.
Additional important features of the M5000-Series include:
In terms of pricing and availability, the single-function WorkForce Pro WF-5194 is anticipated to be available in late march for around $210 and the multifunction WF-5694 is set to become available in late April 2016 for $399.99.
