Epson WF-C879RD3TWFC

Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C879RD3TWFC Multifunction A3 Printer
Print, Copy, Scan, Fax

With Epson’s WorkForce Pro WF-C879RD3TWFC, you will enjoy uninterrupted printing of up to 86,000 pages in mono and 50,000 in colour without changing supplies. This ultra-reliable inkjet multifunction printer incorporates our ground-breaking Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) technology offering low user intervention, less waste, and low energy consumption


Super high yield printing

Thanks to our unique RIPS technology you can print up to 86,000 pages in mono or 50,000 in colour without changing the ink supplies.¹ This means there is less need for user intervention, increasing productivity, and reducing waste consumption.

Precision Core Heat-free technology

Epson Heat-Free Technology requires no heat to warm up when it is switched on or woken from sleep, which significantly reduces energy consumption and therefore saves money. With no warm-up time, these devices can deliver a fast FPOT of 5.5 seconds.

Improved Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)

Our ADF provides market-leading thin paper support, with a compact, robust design and improved scanning speed and quality.

Enhance functionality with in-house (EDA, EPA) and third party solutions (OP)

Gain complete control of printing operations with Epson and its partners solutions, allowing devices to be set up to meet specific and changing business requirements.


The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C879RD3TWFC is configured as a floor standing device, but the core features are also available as a desktop multifunction colour printer, the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C879R. (see ‘Options’ section below)
