Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C879RTC


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.


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

Heat-free PrecisionCore technology enables the use of advanced ink formulations, DURABrite®Pro Ultra Ink. This innovative, pigment based 4 colour ink set, along with heat-free PrecisionCore printing technology delivers smudge, fade and water-resistant prints that are highlighter friendly.


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-C878RTC 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 26 ppm (mono) and 25 ppm (colour), any project can be handled with speed and ease.


Save energy, save money

The WF-C879RTC uses up to 87 per cent less power than competitive colour lasers thanks to its no-heat technology. No ozone gas is emitted, and an improved quiet print mode and no fan noise during or after printing make it ideal for the working environment. And there are fewer parts to replace than a laser. In most cases, the energy used by a laser printer, whilst in “Ready” mode, still uses more energy than an Epson device whilst printing.


Ultra-efficient paper handling

The WorkForce Pro WF-C879RTC boasts a total of 1,900 sheet capacity including a 150-page rear tray for envelopes, labels and specialty media for efficient paper handling.


Performance wherever you go:

1 XL Black ink pack prints up to 86,000 pages. XL Colour Packs print up to 50,000 pages. Actual number of pages will vary. Replacement ink pack yields are based on testing with ISO/IEC 24712 patterns with Epson’s methodology in Default mode, printing continuously. Yields may vary considerably for reasons that include images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colour. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges or ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the “replace ink pack” signal appears. Printer shipped with initial cartridges. Yields achieved with additional purchased ink packs.
