Epson introduces new business inkjet printers

Epson has launched its new series of Workforce Enterprise AM series consisting of the AM-C4000, C5000, and C6000 A3 Color Multifunction Printers. 

The current A3 color printer market is dominated by business printers producing 30-50 pages per minute. Epson’s existing A3 color printers consist of the Workforce Pro Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) Printer, which prints at 26 pages per minute, and the Line Inkjet (LIJ) Printer which prints at 60 to 100 pages per minute. 

Introducing the new WorkForce Enterprise AM series allows Epson to address the current gap in the market in the 30 to 60ppm range while offering consumers an alternative to laser printing options. The availability of newer speed ranges is especially beneficial for corporate offices, as they typically require mid-speed printers for the printing of general office documents.

The AM-C6000 is a replacement for the current WF-C20600 LIJ printer. The AM-C6000 features a faster A4 2-sided scan speed, increasing from 110ipm to 120ipm. The AM-C6000 is significantly more compact than its predecessor, with its weight reduced from 177.1kg to 99.4kg, allowing it to be installed in most office spaces. The panel is upgraded to a capacitive 10.1’’ touch panel, while the TEC value will be decreased from 0.41kWh to 0.25 kWh. 

Epson Print Admin

Epson’s specially curated print management solution provides secure print and automatic document distribution by authentication function, preventing leakage of confidential information. Users authenticate on the device by ID card or PIN to use permissible features or release their own print jobs. Epson Print Admin (EPA) also allows the IT admin to set quotas and rules to manage their printing cost. Customizable reports can be generated for cost management and security auditing. 

The WorkForce Enterprise AM series comes equipped with two new finishers, an inner finisher that is installed directly in the main unit, and a staple finisher with no external bridge unit. A saddle unit can be attached to the staple finisher for folding and booklet-making.  Both finishers can support hole-punching with an optional upgrade.
