Epson Releases New RIPS Printers

To demonstrate its commitment to leading innovation in printing, Epson has introduced two new multi-functional inkjet printers featuring its Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) technology that can print up to 75,000 pages.

Evolved from the success of Epson’s Ink Tank System (ITS) printers, RIPS technology has removed the need for expensive cartridges and have positioned inkjet printers ahead of highly favored laser printers.

According to Epson, the new additions to Epson Workforce Pro RIPS range are the first non-industrial printers to include its exclusive PrecisionCore printed technology, and produce top-quality documents on media up to A3+.

The release include: Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590DTWF and WorkForce Pro WF-5690DTWF. Both printers are designed to cut costs and are suitable for enterprises of all sizes, with up to 80 percent lower energy consumption than competitive color lasers. Fast print speeds and business features, including PIN release control for confidential, secure printing, and Gigabit network connectivity make the WF-R8590DTWF model ideal for boosting productivity. Other features include: Ethernet, USB, wireless Wi-Fi Direct® to easily print from tablets and smart phones, and remote printing and access to the Cloud, and etc.

With a yield up to 75,000 pages and the PrecisionCore technology, both models enable predictable printing costs and dramatic increase in speed, quality and reliability.

Kelvin Reynolds, General Manager of Epson South Africa, said, “The Workforce Pro RIPS printers are designed for business environments. They make great business sense for companies of any size because they offer lower running costs, lower power consumption and a reduced environmental impact. The new Workforce Pro RIPS printers make it possible for businesses to focus on doing business, rather than spending time on managing their printers.”

The new models are available in South Africa. More information at:
