Epson ramps up ink capacity in new EcoTank printer range

24 Oct 2017

Epson has expanded its cartridge-free EcoTank printer family with the release of two new products that offer more than twice the page yield of the company’s previous models.

Epson’s latest additions are the new Expression EcoTank home models and new WorkForce EcoTank printers for the small medium business market and two new photo printers, the ET-7700 and ET-7750.

Overall, Epson’s EcoTank range now includes the ET-2610, ET-2700, ET-2750, ET-3700, ET-4750, ET-7700 and ET-7750.

Bruce Bealby, general manager, sales & marketing for Epson Australia’s consumer division, comments, “Existing EcoTank models have an ink tank design on the side of the printer. The new models in the range have integrated ink tanks on the front and clever new, non-spill ink bottles.”

“The new range is smaller in size, better looking and more efficient with some models now boasting significantly increased page yields in the box. We are also soon to launch the groundbreaking new ET-7700 and ET-7750 A4 and A3 5-colour EcoTank photo printers - a huge bonus for people who print lots of photos.”

Some of the key features of the new printers are up to two years of ink in the box and a new industrial design featuring integrated ink tanks with auto-stop ink bottles that aim to make the process of filling of each colour easier.

According to Epson, the EcoTank range now includes the ET-2610 with enough ink to print up to 4,000 pages in black and 6,500 pages in colour.

In addition, the range includes ET-2700 and ET-2750 with enough ink to print up to 6,500 pages black and 5,200 colour and the ET-3700 with more than twice the page yield of its predecessor.

The ET-7700 and ET-7750 include enough ink to print up to 14,000 pages black and 9,000 colour or thousands of 4” x 6” photos.

The new auto-stop ink bottles feature a unique spout and inlet design for each colour that aims to prevent misfiling, and stops automatically when the tank is full.
