Epson Australia has announced what it is calling The Future of Business Printing - WorkForce Pro RIPS, which stands for Replaceable Ink Pack System, a new way for SMBs to cut costs and improve efficiencies when it comes to office colour printing.

Using this system, Epson's new WorkForce Pro R5000 series and R8000 series multi-function printers can deliver up to 75,000 printed pages (only with the WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC) in both black and colour before the ink needs to be replaced. These printing solutions allow customers to print high impact colour documents with ultra-low operating costs and minimal maintenance.

Epson Business Division general manager, Craig Heckenberg, said, "RIPS truly revolutionises business printing with its incredible efficiency and benefits to the environment. Epson's unique approach transforms office printing by allowing companies to focus on running their business, not on managing printer supplies. These new models also allow IT managers and business owners to bring extremely affordable colour printing to the office while reducing the hassles normally associated with printer maintenance.”

By using RIPS companies looking to reduce their consumable cost per page can save up to 80 per cent when compared to equivalent lasers. In addition, the ultra-low power consumption associated with Epson’s Micro Piezo inkjet technology contributes to further savings of up to 70 per cent in power usage when compared to laser technology.

WorkForce Pro RIPS is a compelling choice for environmentally conscious businesses. Offering the highest page yield in its class, RIPS significantly reduces the need to stock many consumable items and parts. As a result storage, transport and logistics are all kept to a minimum, while eliminating the need to recycle empty cartridges.

The WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC multifunction printer is Epson's fastest business colour printing solution, featuring print speeds of 24 ISO ppm (black and colour), an 1831-sheet maximum capacity supporting up to A3+ media and includes ink supplies able to deliver up to 75,000 printed pages. The WorkForce Pro WF-R5690 multifunction printer and WF-R5190 printer deliver print speeds up to 20 ISO ppm (black and colour), a 580-sheet capacity and also include ink to print up to 50,000 pages (WorkForce Pro WF-R5690 and WF-R5190 only) before requiring replacement.

RIPS is also equipped with Epson’s high density resin coated pigment ink - DURABrite. This new four colour (CMYK) ink set is water and smudge resistant and produces ultra sharp detail and vibrant coloured graphics on plain and specialty papers including semi-gloss, gloss and double sided matte up to 256gsm.

The WorkForce Pro RIPS models also feature Epson PrecisionCore technology, built-in connectivity features including Ethernet, USB, wireless b/g/n2 and Wi-Fi Direct to print from tablets and smartphones, and include remote printing and access to the cloud.

Additional features include IT tools such as remote setup and custom settings for multiple printers, and support for popular security protocols to protect confidential documents. The printers also support PCL3 and Adobe PostScript and come standard with Document Capture Pro Scanning software for seamless integration into locally managed documents and cloud services.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
