High Quality and Productivity

    Enjoy default print speeds of up to 24 ipm and draft print speeds of up to 34 ppm for both black and colour prints with PrecisionCore™ printheads. This revolutionary technology delivers professional output quality at blazing speeds.

    Achieve excellent print resolution of 600 x 600 dpi for standard prints and up to 4,800 x 1,200 dpi for prints with special media, with no warm-up time and a fast first page-out time of less than 7 seconds.


Versatile Paper Handling

    The WF-R8591 can be upgraded with additional paper cassettes to support up to 1,831 sheets input capacity. Paper of different sizes can be placed in the different cassettes for automatic selection. A single sheet priority input is also available for manual feeding of templates such as letter heads and the rear tray enables the use of special media such as photo media. What’s more, a cabinet can be added for convenient storage of additional paper and spare consumables.


Exceptional Low Running Costs

    With Epson’s Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS), exorbitant printing costs are a thing of the past. The revolutionary RIPS features four ink supply units and a waste ink box, giving you up to 75,000 pages of uninterrupted printing in both black and colour. With such page yields, you enjoy maximum cost savings and minimum running costs.


DURABriteTM Pro Ink

    The WF-R8591 uses a new pigment ink set known as DURABrite Pro that was specially developed for business use. Compared to conventional pigment inks, this new ink set has greater pigment concentration, achieving vivid black and colour prints and allowing graphs and images to be clearly expressed even on ordinary plain paper.

    The ink also has a curl inhibiting ingredient that prevents curling of paper. Like DURABrite Ultra ink, this new ink set is water, smudge and fade-resistant.

Efficient Print Job Management

    Print Job Interruption

    With this feature, users can interrupt the print queue when there is an urgent print job. Interrupted print jobs are paused and can be resumed later once the urgent tasks are completed. In addition, users can cancel the print job from the control panel even when the printer is in the process of printing.

    Page Recovery

    After an error is rectified, the printer will automatically restart the printing from the last printed page. This prevents missing pages due to error.

Remarkably Energy Saving
