LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. - Oct. 19, 2021 - The remote workforce and small offices benefit from printing solutions with high-yield consumables, given costs and maintenance are typically top-of-mind. Epson America, Inc. today announced the WorkForce®ST-C4100 and ST-C2100 Supertank Color MFPs with supersized ink tanks and up to two years of ink guaranteed.1 The ST-C4100 and ST-C2100 have a small, compact footprint and offer up to 90 percent savings on ink with low-cost replacement ink bottles versus ink cartridges2 - equivalent to about 90 individual ink cartridges.3
"The cost per page with low-cost replacement ink,2 print quality, and compact size are all features we certainly appreciate about the ST-C4100," said James Vlcek, franchise owner, Marco's Pizza. "We had been using a desktop laser printer with an ink subscription program and it didn't make a whole lot of sense financially - especially if we went over our allocated monthly print volume."
The new Supertank printers are engineered for reliability in small offices and home offices with a permanent printhead designed to last the life of the printer and include a two-year limited warranty. Both models deliver vibrant graphics and razor-sharp text and use Epson's exclusive EcoFit® bottles that are auto-start/stop and uniquely keyed for easy filling of each color.
"As businesses continue to be remote, it is essential to implement high-performance printing solutions that are engineered for reliability, cost-efficiency and are easy to manage," said Kaila Murphy, product manager, Business Imaging, Epson America, Inc. "The new Supertank models are a great fit for remote workforces because they come included with high-yield ink bottles, making consumables management for IT organizations quite simple."
The ST-C4100, powered by PrecisionCore Heat-Free Technology™, includes enough ink in the box to print up to14,000 pages black/11,200 color4 and delivers a fast first page out and low power consumption. It has fax, auto two-sided printing, a 250-sheet paper tray, an auto document feeder (ADF), and a large 2.4" color touchscreen. With Wi-Fi Direct®5 and Ethernet for wireless and networking, users can easily print from iPad®, iPhone® and Android™ tablets or smartphones.6
The ST-C2100, built with MicroPiezo Heat-Free™ Technology includes enough ink in the box to print up to 6,500 pages black/5,200 color.4 It delivers fast prints - even high-quality photo prints up to 4" x 6" - without sacrificing quality or low power consumption. The ST-C2100 has versatile connectivity options, with Wi-Fi®, Wi-Fi Direct5 and voice-activated printing.7
Both models are compatible with the Epson Smart Panel app®,8 a "command center" to setup, operate and monitor the device. The ST-C4100 replaces its predecessor, the ST-4000, and the ST-C2100 replaces its predecessor, the ST-C2000, to join Epson's business inkjet Supertank lineup of high-quality business printing MFPs.
