Epson brings cost-saving RIPS technology for business printing

|September 10, 2015 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Epson makes its foray into the copier segment with Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8591 and WF- R5691.

Epson aims to completely disrupt the world of office printing with the new Workforce RIPS printers.  The Epson WorkForce Pro RIPS series utilize high capacity Replaceable Ink Pack Systems (RIPS) that can hold a far higher volume of ink compared to traditional ink cartridges. The system provides the ease-of-use of a cartridge-based system, combined with the high volume printing of an ink tank system.

This new series of Epson printers exploit the reliability and extreme performance of the printer’s proprietary new PrecisionCore printhead.

Epson claims this new system gives business owners and corporates the freedom to print without worrying about the cost or physical waste, but while retaining the quality, speed, versatile paper handling capability and more importantly the reliability.

The Workforce RIPS printers can provide enough ink to print up to 75,000 A4 pages of Black and Color. That is enough for years of uninterrupted printing in a business environment without having to change cartridges. In addition, Workforce RIPS printers offer the lowest print cost in this category of 30 Paise for B&W and 75 Paise for Colour, and an amazingly low energy consumption of just 40Watts.

Minoru Usui – President of Seiko Epson Corporation, Japan said, “Our unique technology offers significant benefits to office and professional customers in terms of cost, productivity and the environment. Based on our industrial grade PrecisionCore technology, I believe we have the potential to shift office printing from laser to inkjet, and this is one step in that direction. Ultimately when it comes to printing, my overall aim is simply “everything printed by Epson.”

In FY2014-15, Epson’s value market share for inkjet printers in India was 51%.

While the WF-R8591 is priced at Rs.193,999 (Desktop Model) and Rs.262,996 (Pedestal Model) respectively, the WF-R5691 is priced at Rs.98,999.
