KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
Introducing heat-free PrecisionCore, the next generation of printing technology. From professional and industrial-level printers to your desktop inkjet, this groundbreaking technology delivers fast printing with superior quality results. A truly innovative system, heat-free PrecisionCore features Epson’s advanced thin-film piezoelectric (TFP) elements, which are produced via the MEMS manufacturing process, based on semiconductor micro-fabrication techniques. At the core of this proprietary technology is the PrecisionCore MicroTFP print chip, a digital chip that does not use heat to eject ink and prints at the micron level — 1/100th the size of a human hair. It’s this extraordinary focus on accuracy and detail that enables PrecisionCore to deliver revolutionary results, and no heat also means less power consumption, fewer consumables and less intervention, which saves you time and money.
Print up to 7 times more than a comparable laser1
Most comparable laser printers will need new toner supplies every 7,000 prints1. WorkForce Pro printers with heat-free PrecisionCore deliver outstanding results without breaking the bottom line. Users can continue to print without having to spend extra time and money at the local copy shop. Print more with high capacity ink cartridges of with a variety of ink packs such as 50,000 Black and 20,000 Colour page yields.
Fast print speeds
Heat-free PrecisionCore technology ensures each nozzle on the print head delivers up to 50,000 droplets per second. Faster print speeds that beat those of comparable lasers. The WorkForce Pro WF-C579R delivers professional quality, two-sided Colourprints at super-fast print speeds, making it easy to increase productivity, without compromising quality. Boasting drastically improved print speeds of up to 24 ISO ppm†. Any printing requirement can be handled with speed and ease.
Higher resolution vs. laser printers
Packing a greater number of nozzles into a smaller surface area, this high-resolution inkjet printhead, along with heat-free PrecisionCore technology, gives you ultra-sharp text with smooth black gradations on both plain and specialty paper. Comparing to a laser device at 600dpi, these devices will deliver a better quality of document. Perfectly suited to your customer’s business printing requirements.
