Powerful & professional printers that drive productivity for business & Enterprise
The Epson WF-C878R workgroup printer enables offices to benefit from the increased productivity of a local distributed print fleet that requires minimal intervention, while providing predictable print costs.
Thanks to this printer's super-high-yield ink supply units maintenance is simple. Comparable laser printers will need new toners, sometimes as often as every 12,000 prints. The WorkForce WF-C878R deliver outstanding results with high capacity ink packs lasting up to 86,000 pages for mono, and 50,000 pages for colour.
Also, smaller capacity ink is available that can enable up to 20,000 printed pages in mono and colour. The supply units lead to low intervention and no time-wasting interruptions. Supplies management is made simple, supplies waste is greatly reduced and lower IT support costs are achieved.
Built for business
Heat-free PrecisionCore technology powers the output quality that Epson is known for, at the speeds required for office, commercial and industrial printing. Prints dry fast thanks to the DURABrite Ultra Pro ink. PDL printing emulations, including PCL and Adobe PostScript 3, and Gigabit Ethernet help this printer easily integrate into the business environment. Its Wi-Fi Direct® capability also lets you print from supported wireless devices without connecting to a router.
The WF-C878R uses up to 87 percent less power than competitive colour lasers thanks to its no heat technology. No ozone gas is emitted, and an improved quiet print mode and no fan noise during or after printing make it ideal for the working environment. And there are fewer parts to replace than a laser.
PrecisionCore Inkjet Technology
Introducing heat-free PrecisionCore, the next generation of inkjet printing technology. From professional and industrial-level printers to your desktop inkjet, this groundbreaking technology delivers fast printing with superior quality results. A truly innovative system, PrecisionCore features Epson's advanced thin-film piezoelectric (TFP) elements, which are produced via the MEMS manufacturing process, based on semiconductor micro-fabrication techniques. At the core of this proprietary technology is the PrecisionCore MicroTFP print chip, a digital chip that does not use heat to eject ink and prints at the micron level — 1/100th the size of a human hair. It's this extraordinary focus on accuracy and detail that enables PrecisionCore to deliver revolutionary results, and no heat also means less power consumption, fewer consumables and less intervention, which saves you time and money
High performance, low intervention
Keep your business moving with WorkForce Pro RIPS. Forget frequent time-wasting interruptions to change consumables, deal with supplies mis-management, fix problems or wait for IT support. Just concentrate on smooth, on-demand business printing.
Predictable print costs
Available as part of a Managed Print Service, WorkForce Pro RIPS printers can help to create a distributed printer fleet that both handles the demands of busy workgroups and delivers predictable print costs.
Proximity and security
The benefits of a distributed printer fleet include easy access, confidentiality and control, which all contribute to enhanced workflow. The local distributed print model is particularly useful where confidentiality and fast, direct access to prints is crucial. This includes senior management, legal and HR environments, and customer-facing staff like teachers, doctors, nurses and retail staff who can’t leave customers, patients or students while they go off to pick up prints.
Fast print speeds
Heat-free PrecisionCore technology ensures each nozzle on the print head delivers up to 50,000 droplets per second. The result? Fast print speeds that rival those of colour lasers. The WorkForce Pro WF-C878R delivers professional quality, two-sided colour prints at super fast print speeds, making it easy to increase productivity, without compromising quality. Boasting drastically improved print speeds of up to 25 ISO ppm (mono) and 24 ISO ppm† (colour), any project can be handled with speed and ease.
Higher colour resolution vs. colour laser printers and versatility
Packing a greater number of nozzles into a smaller surface area, this high-resolution inkjet printhead, along with heat-free PrecisionCore technology, gives you ultra-sharp text, as well as stunning graphics and images — all with smooth gradations on both plain and specialty paper.
Ultra efficient paper handling and versatility
The WorkForce Pro WF-C878R boasts a total of 330 sheet capacity including an 80-page rear tray for envelopes, labels and specialty media for efficient paper handling.
Extremely durable prints
Heat-free PrecisionCore technology enables the use of advanced ink formulations, DURABrite®Pro Ultra Ink. This innovative, pigment based 4 colour ink set, along with heat-free PrecisionCore printing technology delivers smudge, fade and water resistant prints that are highlighter friendly too.
Laser-sharp black and colour text
Delivering perfectly round droplets and extremely accurate dot placement, these remarkable print heads ensure extraordinary output, whatever the application delivering brilliant, ultra-sharp text on plain and specialty papers.
Simple wireless connectivity

Replacement ink pack yields are based on testing with ISO/IEC 24712 patterns with Epson's methodology in Default mode, printing continuously. Yields may vary considerably for reasons that include 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. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges or ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal appears.
