CRN reported on the two new A3 inkjet MFPs, the first of which is the C20590, which “aims to require less service by managed print providers”, the OEM adding that it will also be “boosting print speeds and reducing power consumption”. The machine is “aimed at small and medium-sized businesses or workgroups”, and features print speeds of “up to” 100ppm, which “makes the printer the fastest in its class”, alongside low power consumption.
In turn, it has a paper capacity of 2,350 pages, an optional 3,000-sheet high input capacity unit and an optional finisher, with Epson adding that it can “handle fast and detailed prints in part by using Epson’s next-gen printhead technology” PrecisionCore. The device also features a “simpler design than comparable laser printers”, so “needs to be serviced less frequently” by MPS providers and “boosts MPS profitability as a result”.
The second A3 MFP launched was the WorkForce Pro WF-C869R, which replaces the WorkForce WF-R8590, and which “includes improvements around usability”, such as duplex scanning, alongside improved “print quality and serviceability”. It also features print speeds of up to 24ppm and a paper capacity of 1,830 sheets, with both devices “available solely through resellers”, with the C20590 available in the summer and the C869R in the spring.
