Australia’s first Workforce arrives at Kayell

Australia’s first Epson Workforce printer has arrived at Kayell, and is placed in the company’s newly-designed showroom.

The 100 page per minute office printer utilises cold-technology and inkjet, as opposed to toner. Andreas Johannssen, sales director, Kayell Australia explains: “This is virtually an office printer, but we feel it will revolutionise the market with its cold technology.

“It runs at 320 watts, compared to laser technology, which typically uses 8000 watts. It is a lot more environmentally friendly, and uses ink instead of toner, giving 100,000 pages in black or 50,000 in colour.

“It prints on substrates up to 360 gsm, and runs at 100 pages per minute. Japanese users have printed on paper as light as 60 gsm, without issue.

“Normal carbonless paper can be used with the Epson without issue, as there is no heat in the process.

“Epson currently has a folder and stapler that work inline with it. Folders, stitchers, creasers will be coming next. As it is now secondary companies produce most lot of these.”

A fast, low-running cost printer could open up applications in print and mail, and for magazine publishers to more quickly create higher-quality, colour accurate prototypes and dummies for the proofing process, says Johanssen.

Kayell currently has a Workforce printer in both its Sydney and Melbourne showrooms. Its Sydney Workforce is the first Australian model, featuring serial number 000001.
