Epson America’s new WorkForce Pro WF-C5000 Series, powered by the OEM’s PrecisionCore printing technology, features Epson’s Replaceable Ink Pack System technology “in a new compact form for a more streamlined and efficient workstation.” With print speeds of 24 ISO pages per minute (black and colour) and a fast first-page-out with no warm-up time, the WF-C5000 Series “can save up to 45% on total printing costs (versus a colour laser), can print up to 5,000 ISO pages without changing the ink packs, and minimize user interventions with automatic two-sided capabilities and large paper tray capacities up to 830 sheets, with an optional second paper tray,” the OEM added.

“Epson recognizes the needs of busy workgroups and continues to deliver innovative products to help drive productivity,” said Larry Trevarthen, Director of Business Imaging at Epson America. “By bringing some of the advanced technology featured in our WorkForce Enterprise Series MFPs to our WorkForce Pro A3/Tabloid class of printers, and now down to the desktop workgroup class of printers, we’re extending our advanced technology features throughout our portfolio.”

With Epson’s Replaceable Ink Pack System technology, an intuitive user interface and nozzle verification technology (previously introduced on the WorkForce Enterprise Series MFPs and the WorkForce Pro WF-C869R), the WF-C5000 Series is “built for productivity,” said Epson. The series also provides advanced security features and is enabled for remote printer-data collection. Through the Epson Open Platform, the company has expanded its support for ISVs such as Nuance Equitrac Office/Express, Nuance eCopy ShareScan, PaperCut, and nddPrint.
