News: Epson RIPS Technology Wins BLI Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Award

Epson announced earlier this week that its Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) technology had been recognized by Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI), a leading provider of independent information to the imaging industry, with the Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Award for the summer 2015 test season. The awards are made to companies that provide something new to the market and set new standards and goals to which others can aspire.

Used with Epson’s acclaimed series of WorkForce Pro Replaceable Ink Pack Printers, RIPS technology solves many of the issues associated with office printing by using super-high-yield ink supply units for printing up to 75,000* pages between ink changes. The result of this is less wasted time and resources, and predictable print costs.

In its citation, BLI noted that printers using the technology achieved:
– Phenomenally high tested yields for all colors.
– Ultra-long-life consumables, which help maintain office productivity and reduce pain points for IT administration.
– User-friendly replacement and maintenance procedures.
– Compact and low waste packaging advantage, which will suit space-constrained office environments.

BLI also named the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-8590 (known as the WorkForce Pro WF-R8591 in Southeast Asia) as this summer’s Outstanding A3 Low- to Mid-Volume Business Inkjet All-in-One, and the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590 as the Outstanding A3 Mid- to High-Volume Business Inkjet All-in-One.
