LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of superior performing printing solutions, today announced the Epson WorkForce® 2600-Series all-in-one printers designed for the home and small office.

Epson Expands WorkForce Printing Solutions for Home and Small Offices

The WorkForce WF-2660, WF-2650 and WF-2630 expand Epson's existing line of WorkForce printers built for business, and include enhanced connectivity options to make printing from tablets and smartphones easier than ever. The WorkForce WF-2660 supports NFC1 touch-to-print capabilities, and all printers include wireless and Wi-Fi Direct2, which means no router is required for printing and scanning. The WorkForce 2600-Series is also equipped with Epson Connect™ for the ability to print and scan documents, photos, emails and web pages from a tablet, smartphone or computer from literally anywhere in the world3.

The WorkForce 2600-Series offers increased productivity features including laser-quality prints at fast print speeds, a 30-page Auto Document Feeder and scan-to-cloud4 capabilities. In addition, these models feature DURABrite® Ultra Inks that deliver smudge, fade and water resistant prints in affordable individual ink cartridges, so users only have to replace the color needed.

"Epson underscores its commitment to SOHO users with our new line up of impressive, high-value WorkForce models," said Nils Madden, marketing director, Desktop Imaging and Printing, Epson America, Inc. "The WorkForce 2600-Series is a cost-effective solution for business users, without sacrificing the high-quality and ease-of-printing features our customers expect."

Laser-like Performance: Powered by PrecisionCoreTM
The WorkForce WF-2660 and WF-2650 are powered by PrecisionCore, Epson's next generation technology. PrecisionCore features Epson's advanced thin-film piezoelectric (TFP®) elements, which are produced via a MEMS manufacturing process using semiconductor micro-fabrication techniques. At the core of this proprietary technology is the PrecisionCore MicroTFP print chip that can be arrayed in various printhead configurations. Each nozzle on the printhead delivers up to 50,000 droplets per second for increased precision and print quality. The WF-2660 and WF-2650 incorporate an S1 (one chip) printhead configuration.

Fast Speeds and High Performance Features in a Robust, Reliable Design
The WorkForce WF-2660 and WF-2650 produce professional quality prints at speeds of 13 ISO ppm (black) and 7.3 ISO ppm (color). Both models offer a 150-sheet paper capacity and up to 50 percent savings on paper with automatic two-sided printing/scanning/copying/faxing. The WF-2660 includes a 2.7" color touchscreen, and the WF-2650 features a 2.2" mono graphics display for easy menu navigation and control.

Big Savings in a Sleek, Compact Design
The WorkForce WF-2630 offers an unprecedented compact design – the smallest in its class5 – making it ideal for space-constrained work areas. It offers a 100-sheet paper capacity and saves time with fast speeds – 9 ISO ppm (black) and 4.5 ISO ppm (color) – to produce professional-quality prints and crisp, vibrant color business documents at an affordable price ($99). The WF-2630 also features a 2.2" mono graphics display easy navigation.

Additional WorkForce 2600-Series features include:
