Epson Expands Workgroup Printer Product Line
October 31, 2015
Epson America, Inc. earlier this week announced another expansion to their WorkForce® Pro line of printers. The two newest printers are designed for workgroup printing and include the WorkForce® Pro WF-6590 MFP and the WorkForce® Pro WF-6090, a single-function unit. These two new units are the quickest to date for Epson with amazing print speeds of up to 24 ISO ppm for both color and black ink. According to the OEM, their design allows them to bring savings of up to 50% when compared to similarly-featured lasers (priced $600 or less). Both units offer high yield cartridges designed to keep up with the printing demands of busy workgroups as well as high volume paper inputs of up to 1,580 sheets of paper with the addition of optional paper trays.
Larry Trevarthen, director, Business Imaging, Epson America, Inc., stated "Epson continues to expand its offering of low operating cost, high performance office printers. Epson’s new WorkForce Pro printers allow organizations to bring networked, managed, low cost distributed color to the office at significant savings versus comparable laser printers."
Each of Epson’s two new models are able to handle both letter and legal-sized paper and quickly produce output of the highest caliber with minimal attention. The ink cartridges designed to work with both workgroup machines have very high capacities of up to 10,000 pages for black and 7,000 for each color. Also included is the convenience of automatic two-sided printing so less paper waste is created.
Conveniently, both of the new models are compatible with PCL and PostScript® printer languages and can work with various remote printing solutions and provide cloud access. As workgroup models, they are designed to be integrated into existing or new networks and can be managed remotely with ease. Among security features on the two devices are PIN-based confidential job release, access and usage control, and SSL/TLS communication. For companies that use remote data collection as part of an MPS strategy, both units work with solutions from PrintFleet®, ECi FMAudit®, and Print Audit®.
Additional features on the devices include the following:
The WorkForce Pro WF-6590 multifunction printer has a price tag of $549.99, and the WF-6090, $349.99. Both are currently available through IT and specialty dealers, VARs, National Service Provides including SHI and CDW, contract office suppliers, and other authorized Epson commercial resellers.
