Epson Heat-Free Technology
Achieve high speed printing at lower power consumption with Epson Heat-Free Technology as no heat is required during the ink ejection process. Enjoy advanced customer benefits when you switch to Epson inkjet Heat-Free printers and do more for the environment.

For more information, please refer to Heat-Free.

Save time with consistent high speed printing 
No heat is required to warm up, allowing the printer to print immediately. In addition, WF-M21000 is able to realise the same productivity level, in simplex and duplex printing, of up to 100 pages per minute1 due to its shortest duplex route design.

Low 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 Epson inkjet printers have no fuser unit to heat, this results in significantly less energy consumption.

Fewer Replacement Parts, Lower Environmental Impact
Thanks to Heat-Free Technology, Epson inkjet printers use fewer parts that need replacing than in a laser printer, and our printheads 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.

Superb Print Quality with DURABrite Pro Ink
Using high capacity ink cartridges, print up to 120,000 pages in black2 without interruption.

Enhanced Finishing Capability
Increase productivity with advanced finishing such as stapling, hole punching and booklet printing.

Advanced Workflow Solutions
Take advantage of remote management, customise print options and enjoy seamless compatibility with the Epson WorkForce Enterprise. Integrate these into your existing IT infrastructure to improve productivity and increase efficiency.

Network Connectivity and Standalone Capability
Equipped with Ethernet, Wi-Fi, RJ-11 fax, Wi-Fi Direct and USB 3.0, the printer is apt for office environments. In addition, Wi-Fi Direct acts as an access point, allowing up to four devices to connect to the printer at a time.

For expandable connectivity, the printer comes standard with a network port for shared usage across the network. Expand connectivity to multiple networks with the additional network option. Up to 3 fax ports can be added for simultaneous communication.

* For 85% less power consumption by Epson inkjet printers vs laser printers
Testing was commissioned by Epson and conducted by Keypoint Intelligence. One specific model was selected from color laser multi-function printers in the 65-70ppm class. Epson WorkForce Enterprise WF-C21000 with 100ppm (equivalent model in Europe was used during the evaluation). This data is as of September, 2020. Devices were tested in default mode as per Keypoint Intelligence’s proprietary standard energy consumption test methods. Calculations were based on a weekday workload of 2 x 4 hours printing + 16 hours in sleep/standby mode, and weekend energy use of 48 hours in sleep/standby mode. A total of 69 pages of workload test pattern using DOC, XLS, PPT, HTML, PDF files and Outlook email messages were printed six times in each 4-hour printing period.

** Testing was commissioned by Epson to Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab, based on Epson WF-C20590. Two comparison models were selected from colour laser multi- function printers in the 65-70 ppm class. Calculations were based on the frequency and volume of consumables and replacement parts required to print 1 million pages (ISO/ IEC 24712 test pattern) over a period of 5 years.

*1 Black print speeds are measured in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on system configuration, software, and page complexity.

For more information, visit Print Speed.

*2 With 2 black ink cartridges: up to 120,000 pages in black.

*3 For simplex printing only.

*4 Replacement cartridge yields are based on ISO/IEC 24711 tests in Default Mode printing continuously. Cartridge yields 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. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colours have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer setup and a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace cartridge” signal. For more information, visit Ink Info.

*5 Finisher Tray 2 for Fax output only.

*6 Default mode in accordance with ISO7779.

*7 Up to 50 sheets for letter, A4 and B5 size. Up to 30 sheets for A3, B4, Legal and 8.5 x 13”.
