Epson revealed a new product lineup – the WorkForce Pro – aimed at expanding its business solutions by targeting small offices and workgroups.
Epson estimates that the three new inkjet products – the WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One, WorkForce Pro WP-4530 All-in-One and WorkForce Pro WP-4020 single function – will deliver ink cost savings of up to 50 percent compared to a color laser printer with new extra-large ink cartridge replacements and offer the “world’s fastest auto two-sided print speeds.”
The multifunction WorkForce Pro WP-4540 and WP-4530 feature print, copy, scan and fax capability along with print speeds up to 16 ppm in black and 11 ppm in color single-sided and 9.2 ppm in black and 7.1 ppm in color double-sided.
Other features include: a 30-sheet duplexing ADF, front side USB port and built-in wireless connectivity.
The WorkForce Pro WP-4540 will also offer the highest paper capacity in its class as of this writing at 580-sheets as well as a 5.8-inch touch screen with a 3.5-inch LCD.
The WorkForce Pro WP-4530 has a smaller paper capacity at 330-sheets, no touch screen and a slightly smaller LCD.
The single function WorkForce Pro WP-4020 inkjet features the same quick print speeds – 16 ppm in black and 11 ppm in color single sided and 9.2 ppm in black and 7.1 ppm in color double sided – as well as 330-sheet paper capacity, a print resolution up to 4800 x 1200 dpi and wireless connectivity.
All three products – WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One, WorkForce Pro WP-4530 All-in-One and the WorkForce Pro WP-4020 – will be available in September through Epson and authorized vendors for the suggested retail price of $399.99, $299.99 and $179.99, respectively.
