Epson unveils sustainable line of EcoTank printers with enhanced functions for high print performance
PHILIPPINES, 15 SEPTEMBER 2021 – Epson, a global frontrunner in printing technologies and market leader for ink tank printers, refreshes its current EcoTank line-up with the launch of 11 new models with added and improved features that suit customers’ evolving printing needs at home or in the office.
Known for its printhead’s durability, integrated ink tank design and innovative spill-free ink bottles, the EcoTank offers one of the lowest total cost of ownership in the market, driving Epson to consistently be recognized as the No.1 ink tank printer vendor worldwide for 11 straight years. Developed for home users, small offices, and corporates, some models in the new and refreshed EcoTank line-up also come with sleek white models that will be exclusively sold in Epson’s e-commerce platforms.
Turn Down The Heat: Printing with less environmental impact
In line with Epson’s Turn Down The Heat campaign that promotes the fight against climate change, Epson’s new range of EcoTank printers uses Heat-Free Technology to deliver advanced benefits over laser and thermal inkjet technology. With this innovation, EcoTank printers require no heat in the ink ejection process, delivering consistent high-speed printing with significantly less power consumption and cost savings.
Bringing benefits to both customers and the environment, Epson’s EcoTank printers use fewer consumables and replacement parts. This minimizes user intervention and resulting waste without compromising productivity and performance. To further alleviate environmental impacts, the L4200 and L6200 series’ hard plastic weight also consists of up to 30% recycled material
New features: Smart Panel and Draft Vivid Mode
One of the key features introduced in the new EcoTank line-up for the home and small offices is the Epson Smart Panel*, an intuitive smartphone application that allows customers to print, scan, copy and perform basic printer maintenance with just a few taps. With quick configuration elements, customers can use the Epson Smart Panel’s new chat format for a stress-free printer initialization and seamless Wi-Fi connection.
As education continues amid the pandemic, students who are learning remotely can use the Epson Smart Panel app to print and scan assignments via Google Classroom. The Access to Class feature on the Epson Smart Panel app connects to Google Classroom so students can directly print and complete their activity sheets, then scan it to turn it in the virtual classroom.
Draft Vivid Mode has also been added as a new print mode for the home and small office models. This new feature enables fast printouts with clearer print quality as compared to Draft Mode and is beneficial for users who wish to print good-quality copies quickly.
Enhanced design and functionalities
All refreshed EcoTank models except the L6400 series sport a new printer body with grid texture that expresses the precision expected of Epson’s revolutionary printing technology. Inside, these printers offer improved features that bring efficiency and quality to everyday printing.
The L1200, L3200, and L5200 series for the home provide vast enhancements to photo printing quality, allowing the production of darker blacks with increased depth and contrast for more vibrant and realistic images. With this improved feature, anyone at home can now use their printers not just for document printing, but also for preserving cherished family moments through stunning photo prints that give life to family photo albums and make home displays more personal.
Ideal for small office use, the L6260, and L6270 both come with an improved front paper loading capacity of 250 sheets. Larger paper loading capacity contributes to lower intervention for a more efficient and stress-free working environment. In terms of print speeds, the L6270 and L6290 are developed to be better than its predecessor models with an increased speed of up to 15.5ipm for black-and-white prints and 8.5ipm for color prints.
Additionally, the L6200 series uses Epson’s four-color Claria ET Standard Ink which uses black pigment and color dye-based inks. The black pigment ink is great for printing durable documents with clear text, while the dye-based cyan, magenta, and yellow ink are fantastic for producing high-quality photos. With this versatile ink set, users in small offices can enjoy the convenience of printing high-quality photos in addition to everyday document printing.
New models: EcoTank for Business
The hybrid workplace is likely here to stay, and having a distributed workforce means giving employees new ways to print. Machines that are more compact, more mobile, and have lower running costs will be key to manage efficient printing during a hybrid setup.
Epson introduced the L6400 series which features a more compact, robust design that easily fits into small to medium offices or shops. Its Heat-Free PrecisionCore printhead provides a reliable printing solution for high-speed printing that enhances productivity. Using Epson’s new 4-color pigment inks, DURABrite ET Ink, these new models deliver sharp, clear, and water-resistant prints without compromising on cost. With the L6400 series, users will be able to save more as each set of bottle inks has a high page yield of 7,500 for black and 6,000 for color, making it ideal for high-volume printing in corporate environments.
