Epson has released a new Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) which it says delivers an entirely new way for small to medium size businesses to cut costs and improve efficiencies in office colour printing.

Describing its new ‘revolutionary’ system, WorkForce Pro RIPS, as “The future of business printing”, Epson says that utilising the system, its new WorkForce Pro R5000 series and R8000 series multi-function printers can deliver up to 75,000 printed pages in both black and colour before the ink needs to be replaced.

Craig Heckenberg, General Manager - for Epson’s Business Division says these printing solutions allow customers to print high impact colour documents with ultra-low operating costs and minimal maintenance.

"RIPS truly revolutionises business printing with its incredible efficiency and benefits to the environment,” says Heckenberg.

“Epson's unique approach transforms office printing by allowing companies to focus on running their business, not on managing printer supplies. These new models also allow IT managers and business owners to bring extremely affordable colour printing to the office while reducing the hassles normally associated with printer maintenance.”

According to Epson, by using RIPS companies looking to reduce their consumable cost per page can save up to 80% when compared to equivalent lasers, and, in addition, the ultra-low power consumption associated with the Micro Piezo inkjet technology contributes to further savings of up to 70% in power usage when compared to laser technology.

Heckenberg says WorkForce Pro RIPS is a compelling choice for environmentally conscious businesses, and offering the highest page yield in its class, RIPS significantly reduces the need to stock many consumable items and parts - as a result storage, transport and logistics are all kept to a minimum, while eliminating the need to recycle empty cartridges.
