Epson Continuous ink supply system (CISS) printers, also known as ink tank printers, have emerged in the home printer market with features edging out standard inkjets and laser printers.
Ink tank printers are typically being used by small businesses or home offices with high-volume printing needs. These run on large refillable tanks instead of individual cartridges that need to be discarded once empty. In addition, these tanks can hold more ink which eliminates the need for frequent changes in the cartridge, which makes it a cost-effective option for home offices as well as start-ups and small businesses.
Epson was also the first company to introduce ink tank printers with their EcoTank lineup. Its Heat-Free Technology with PrecisonCore Printhead consumes up to 85% less energy than laser printers of a similar speed. While the CO2 emissions of consumables such as raw materials, manufacturing, production and distribution of parts, and consumer use and disposal are less than a fifth of conventional cartridge printer models. This results in savings in annual energy bills.
EcoTank printers also operate at a consistently high printing speed with no heat required for warming up. This makes Epson EcoTank printers more efficient and capable of printing for a long period with minimal maintenance downtime. EcoTank printers also feature ink bottles with an ultra-high page yield of up to 7,500 pages in black and 6,000 pages in color. The ink is also simple to refill, with spill-free bottle designs.
With Epson EcoTank Printers, users can produce pages at a fraction of the cost, especially with bulk printing compared to the standard inkjet or laser printer.
