PrecisionCore Heat-Free Technology
PrecisionCore builds on Epson’s longstanding reputation for output quality, at the speeds and reliability required for commercial and industrial printing. This revolutionary technology enables the WF-C579R to print at blazing print speeds of up to 24ipm and a first page-out time of just 5.3 seconds in colour. What’s more, each print chip is capable of generating up to 40 million precise dots per second to deliver fast printing speeds and excellent output quality. With advanced built-in Nozzle Verification Technology, the monitoring of nozzle health and print quality adjustments are done automatically without interruption, even during printing. Productivity is further enhanced with a reliable maximum monthly duty cycle of 50,000 pages.

Innovative Replaceable Ink Pack System
Convenience is a top priority. That’s why Epson’s Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) is designed for easy, hassle-free ink replacements. The high capacity ink packs print up to 50,000 pages in black and 20,000 pages in colour. This minimises the downtime needed to replace the inks and enable greater cost savings.

In addition, Epson’s DURABriteTM Ultra ink delivers laser-like quality prints that are water-, fade- and smudge-resistant.

Built for the Environment
No Heating, Less Power Consumption & Simple to Use
Unlike laser printers, which require heat to fix toner on paper, inkjet printers do not need heat to operate. They are also fast and simple to use, which substantially reduces power consumption from minimal maintenance and fewer consumables.

Superior Productivity
Automatic Duplex Printing and Scanning
The printer supports automatic duplex printing of up to 15ipm for A4, reducing paper wastage. The one pass duplex ADF unit allows for quick, convenient scanning and copying of double-sided documents.

Versatile Paper Handling
Input paper capacity can be upgraded with an additional paper cassette to support up to 1,330 sheets input capacity. Paper of different sizes can be placed in the different cassettes for automatic selection. The rear tray enables the use of special media such as photo media.

USB Host Function
The WF-C579R comes with a USB port for direct printing, scanning and saving faxes using USB flash memory devices.

LCD Screen
Experience easy set-up and PC-less operation with the 4.3” colour touch screen.

Notes:

*1 Print speed (Pages Per Minute) is calculated when printed on A4 plain paper in the fastest mode. Print speed may vary depending on system configuration, print mode, document complexity, software, type of paper used and connectivity. Print speed does not include processing time on host computer.

*2 The maximum number of printed pages per month based on the performance capabilities of the printer, including ISO rated print speeds and paper handling capabilities.

*3 Default mode in accordance with ISO7779 for MFPs.

*4 In accordance with ISO 24711/24712. Actual yields will vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colour. A variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace cartridge” signal. Part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. Ink is used for both printing and print head maintenance. All inks are used for both black and colour printing.
