Epson, a world leader in technology, has officially launched its new WorkForce Enterprise AM-Series of 40-60ppm products leveraging its Piezo Heat-Free inkjet technology and multi-function printers (MFPs), closing a previous gap in its A3 business product portfolio.
The new products bring static line-head technology to the mid-range speed market and for Epson’s channel partners will simplify the sales process, ensuring end users have the best product fit while still addressing the sustainability agenda. Epson’s goal is to become carbon negative and eliminate use of exhaustible underground resources such as oil and metal by 2050.
Inkjet technology can reduce energy consumption compared to laser, and with a compact footprint and a lightweight design, these products help limit resources used during production and shipping. This reduced size also means they easily integrate into the office and save space. High yield ink cartridges also reduce material usage, shipping, storage and end of use management of consumables.
The launch coincides with the company’s decision to transition fully to inkjet and to end its global sales and distribution of laser printers by 2026. And with fewer moving and consumable parts to replace over the lifetime of the printer compared to lasers, service and maintenance needs of Epson inkjets are also substantially reduced, along with resulting printer downtime, improving productivity and end-user satisfaction.
Gareth Jay, Epson Europe says: “The new WorkForce Enterprise AM-Series completes our business inkjet line up from small work-group units to high-speed departmental machines – meaning that no matter the business function or print demand, we have a product to suit.
