Be more productive and reduce your environmental impact by switching to an Epson WorkForce Pro WF-M5799DWF inkjet printer.

Consistent high-speed printing

Epson Heat-Free Technology requires no heat to warm up when it is switched on or awoken from sleep. This means it starts printing immediately compared to laser printers, which need to preheat the fuser to print. Consistent high-speed printing is ensured, even for documents with high-printing density.

Less power consumption saves energy and money

Epson Heat-Free Technology uses less power than laser technology because it does not use heat to warm up. As inkjets have no fuser unit to heat, this results in significantly less energy consumption.

Fewer replacement parts, lower environmental impact

Laser printers typically have more consumables and require periodic replacement of the drum, transfer belt and fuser in many cases. Thanks to Heat-Free Technology, our inkjet printers use fewer parts that need replacing than in a laser printer, and our print heads are not a consumable. This reduces the environmental burden of manufacturing and recycling the additional resources.

Less intervention increases productivity

The Heat-Free structure of Epson inkjet printers means that there are fewer parts that can fail, which reduces the amount of intervention required. As a result, Epson inkjet printers offer improved reliability and significantly reduced downtime.
