Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C878R


Introducing PrecisionCore, the next generation of printing technology. From professional and industrial-level printers to your desktop inkjet, this groundbreaking technology delivers fast printing with superior quality results. A truly innovative system, PrecisionCore features Epson‘s advanced thin-film piezoelectric (TFP) elements, which are produced via the MEMS manufacturing process, based on semiconductor micro-fabrication techniques. At the core of this proprietary technology is the PrecisionCore MicroTFP print chip, a digital chip that prints at the micron level — 1/100th the size of a human hair. It’s this extraordinary focus on accuracy and detail that enables PrecisionCore to deliver revolutionary results, whatever the task at hand.


Lowest colour cost per page in its class:

Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C878RSave up to 62% on printing costs compared with colour laser1
Why should you settle for mono prints when you can print in colour? This WorkForce Pro printer with PrecisionCore technology on board, delivers outstanding results at a fraction of the cost of colour laser. You can print sales and marketing collateral in-house and on-demand, rather than buying in bulk, and spending extra time and money at the local copy shop. Print more with high-capacity ink cartridges that last up to 86,000 black pages, and colour yields of up to 50,000 pages2.


Save energy, save money

The WorkForce Pro WF-C878R includes features such as automatic, two-sided printing whereby you can save up to 50% on paper supply. In addition, both models enable significant energy reduction by using up to 85% less power than laser printers3. In most cases, the energy used by a laser printer, whilst in “Ready” mode, still uses more energy than an Epson device whilst printing.


Exceptional, best-in-class Colour Quality:

Higher-resolution vs. laser printers

If you wish to buy a colour printer to promote your business, no matter what line of business, Epson’s exceptional colour print quality will ensure proposals and marketing collateral are represented in the best possible light.

Packing a greater number of nozzles into a smaller surface area, this high-resolution inkjet printhead, along with PrecisionCore technology, gives you ultra-sharp text, as well as stunning graphics and images – all with smooth gradations on both plain and specialty paper. Compared to a laser device at 600dpi, these devices can deliver 16 times the quality. Perfectly suited to business printing requirements.

Extremely durable prints

PrecisionCore technology enables the use of advanced ink formulations, DURABrite® Ultra Ink. This innovative, pigment-based ink set, along with PrecisionCore printing technology delivers smudge, fade, and water-resistant prints that are highlighter friendly too.


Work smarter, not harder:

Productivity and Efficiency

Businesses of all shapes and sizes are always looking to be more productive (do more with less) or more efficient (do it right the first time). The new Epson WorkForce Pro C Series provides a mobility platform to keep an office on the move, and features that provide a host of productivity and efficiency benefits.


Fast print speeds

PrecisionCore technology ensures each nozzle on the print head delivers up to 50,000 droplets per second. The result? Fast print speeds that rival those of more expensive colour lasers. The WorkForce Pro WF-C878R delivers professional quality, two-sided colour prints at super-fast print speeds, making it easy to increase productivity, without compromising quality. Featuring print speeds of up to 25 ppm (mono) and 24 ppm (colour), any project can be handled with speed and ease.
