The SuperTank

Questions You Didn't Think to Ask

Epson SuperTank

Perhaps you’ve heard about Supertank printers but weren’t really sure what the buzz was all about. Well, you undoubtedly will be hearing lots more about this fast-growing segment of the business printer market, so here’s some background on the latest breakthrough in inkjet printing technology.

Epson pioneered the Supertank format and was first to market in North America, introducing its first model in 2015. Unlike traditional inkjets, Supertank printers draw ink from high-capacity, refillable tanks rather than cartridges. The innovative design offers several advantages. For starters, Epson Supertank printers come with a ridiculous amount of ink right out of the box, so you can typically print thousands of pages before having to even think about getting more ink.


Lots of pages, fewer ink replacements

For example, the Epson WorkForce ST-4000 Supertank color printer comes with enough ink to print up to 14,000 pages black/11,200 color. And then there are big savings when it’s time to refill the tanks. With the WorkForce ST-2000 Supertank, an ideal solution for small offices, you can save up to 90 percent with low-cost replacement ink bottles vs. ink cartridges, equivalent to about 90 individual ink cartridges. The big savings on replacement ink and time-saving convenience for busy workplaces mean that Supertank is bound to become the new standard for business printing.


Versatility and options for almost any profession…

With a broad portfolio of Supertank models, Epson gives you plenty of options. From education, healthcare, government, and law offices, to lodging, retail point-of-sale, architecture, and construction or financial services, almost any organization in any business sector can find a printer to fit their needs.

You can choose a printer or a multi-function model (print, copy, scan, and fax), monochrome or color devices, and printers that accommodate standard paper sizes all the way up to 13” x 19” printouts. There are also high-powered models with built-in IT tools for networking, as well as those with a smaller footprint that fit neatly into smaller quarters. Regardless, with the WorkForce Pro WF-M5799 Supertank, you can get up to 30,000 pages of ink right from the start.


…and almost any business need

Need only black ink for legal documents, contracts, invoices, and letters? Monochrome models offer affordable, blazing-fast page-per-minute output. Want attention-getting images? Get sharp color output for classroom handouts, real estate flyers, poster-size in-store signage, church bulletins, restaurant menus, and more. Need to connect workgroups and integrate enterprise apps? Choose a Supertank model with IT tools to support secure wired and wireless networking in managed IT environments.


Top-quality, worry-free printing by design

Epson’s simple design with PrecisionCore Heat-Free TechnologyTM delivers major benefits. Traditional laser and thermal inkjet printers use heat to prepare the toner or ink for output onto paper. With Epson Supertank Printers, there’s practically no warm-up time, so businesses spend less time waiting for their print jobs. Fast first-page-out can result in greater office productivity. Heat-free printing also means fewer maintenance parts, so there may be less need for service and interventions.


Low energy consumption

In addition to providing ultra-sharp text and remarkable image detail, Epson’s innovative, heat-free printing design also helps reduce energy consumption and costs, especially when compared to comparable laser printers. The ENERGY STAR® qualified WorkForce® ST-C8000 Supertank printer delivers the lowest energy consumption in its class, while the WorkForce Pro WF-C5790 Supertank uses up to 75 percent less power than color laser printers.


The smart choice for keeping red ink off the bottom line

The bottom line? A ridiculous amount of ink in the box plus the need for fewer refills can save you up to 90 percent on replacement ink bottles versus cartridges. And with the WorkForce Pro WF-C5790, for example, you can save up to 40 percent on low-cost replacement ink packs versus color laser toner.

What’s more: the ability to go a long time between refills is a real time-saver that can boost business productivity with fewer interruptions to workflows; smart design means maximum uptime and high-quality printing; a big choice of models means you only have to buy what you need and get exactly what’s required to get the job done. And it’s all backed up by a Hardware 2-Year Limited Warranty and 2 Years of Ink Guarantee for all Epson business inkjet Supertank printers.
