Epson Introduces its First A3 Color Multifunction Supertank Cartridge-Free Printer

LONG BEACH, Calif. – May 5, 2020 – Epson America, Inc., pioneer and North America market leader of the Supertank printer category, owning almost 95 percent of the market share, today introduced the WorkForce ST-C8000 A3 color multifunction Supertank, with enough included ink to print up to 19,500 pages black and 14,800 pages color. In today’s economy, businesses must ensure every investment delivers the highest return possible, and with Epson’s ST-C8000 cartridge-free printer businesses can save up to 80 percent with low-cost replacement ink bottles compared to standard-capacity color laser toner cartridges.

For small businesses, consultants or workgroup environments that demand speed and versatility, the ST-C8000 boasts speeds of up to 25 ISO ppm (black and color) and offers wide-format prints up to 13″ x 19″ with copy and scan capabilities up to 11″ x 17″. Powered by PrecisionCore Heat-Free Technology, the ST-C8000 is engineered to deliver high-speed, high-quality color prints with its high-yield ink system and zero-cartridge waste. With fast output speed and crisp details that mirror print-shop quality, the ST-C8000 uses Epson’s pigment-based DURABrite Inks to produce both black-and-white and color prints to ensure any document, from graphics, charts, financial reports, and more, are sharp and vibrant.

“Businesses must be efficient in the way they operate, and this includes implementing technologies that deliver both high ROI and low TCO, and printing technology is no exception,” said Alan Chen, product manager, Business Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “By expanding our WorkForce ST-Supertank portfolio from color to monochrome MFPs, and now an A3 option, not only are we helping businesses cut back on costs associated with replacing and disposing of ink cartridges, we are also opening up new customer-base opportunities for our partners.”

·       High-productivity features – automatic two-sided detection, a 4.3-inch color touchscreen for easy setup and navigation and hands-free voice-activated printing

·       Large paper holding capacity – 500-sheet paper capacity with two front trays, plus a rear feed for specialty paper
