Epson Expands EcoTank Cartridge-Free Printer Portfolio with New, Fully Integrated Ink Pack Design for Busy Offices

Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of printing solutions, announced the WorkForce Pro ET-8700 EcoTank All-In-One printer, the newest addition to the line of cartridge-free EcoTank printers. The WorkForce Pro ET-8700 features Epson's innovative Replaceable Ink Pack System technology in a new compact form factor, with up to two years of ink included in the box—enough to print up to 16,000 pages black and 11,000 pages color.

The WorkForce Pro ET-8700, designed specifically for the small-to-medium business market, allows users to speed through projects with 24 ISO ppm (black/color) print speeds, plus fast scan speeds of up to 24 ppm. Powered by PrecisionCore, it delivers laser-quality black text and color graphics. Unlike previous models which included side compartments to hold the ink packs, the ET-8700 features a space-saving, easy-to-load system at its base, making the ET-8700 40 percent smaller than the previous generation4.   

"With the new low-cost replacement ink packs integrated along the base of the ET-8700 printer, we've taken Epson's traditional EcoTank design, and optimized it for high productivity," said Nils Madden, marketing director, Consumer Marketing, Epson America. "We've made it easier for business owners to enjoy the hassle-free two years of ink in the box1with this new, easy-to-use design and ultra-fast print speeds, giving them more time to focus on what's really important – managing their businesses."
