Epson grows inkjet line with four new WorkForce models

updated 09:50 pm EDT, Tue October 2, 2012

New all-in-ones claimed to save on ink, paper costs

Printer manufacturer Epson America, Inc. bolstered its line of business printers with four new WorkForce all-in-one printers -- the Epson WorkForce WF-3540, WorkForce WF-3520, WorkForce WF-2540 and WorkForce WF-2530. The new models continue to deliver business printing at fast speeds and high-quality, professional-looking documents. In addition, these models offer new features for productivity and affordability including an improved user interface, multiple paper trays, and automatic duplex paper handling.

The WorkForce WF-3540 and WF-3520 offer two-sided print speeds of up to 15 pages per minute for a monochrome print and color speeds approximately 9.2 pages per minute. Epson claims up to a 40 percent lower printing cost with these two printers than equivalent color laser printing. The two models also offer automatic two-sided printing, scanning, copying and faxing.

The WorkForce WF-3540 and WF-3520 offer productivity features including high page capacity (500 sheets for the WF-3540; 250 for the WF-3520) and extra high capacity ink cartridges for minimal user intervention during the print process. Plus, the 30-sheet duplex ADF, sturdy front paper trays, and rear paper feed accommodate a variety of paper types and stock including envelopes, card stock and other specialty media for versatility in paper handling.

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 and WF-2530 offer individual ink cartridges and a space saving, compact design. These all-in-one printers are only slightly slower than more expensive printers in the line -- 9 pages per minute in black and 4.7 pages per minute in color. A 30-sheet auto document feeder allows quick copying or scanning of stacks of original documents.

The WorkForce WF-2540 features a 2.5" LCD for easy navigation and comes with both wired and built-in wireless connectivity for easy setup and sharing on a network. The WorkForce WF-2530 includes PC-fax and OCR software to scan and save documents as text-searchable, editable PDF documents.

The EPSON WorkForce WF-3540 retails for $200, with the WorkForce WF-3520 priced at $150. The WorkForce WF-2540 sells for $130, and WorkForce WF-2530 comes in at $100, Alk will be available later this fall at retail and the online Epson Store.
