Epson has announced the latest updates to its portfolio of Ink Tank System (ITS) printers: L382, L386, L486, with improved speeds and a new borderless photo printing feature. These advances add to the appeal of these printers, which are designed to provide an affordable solution for high-volume printing.

The innovative ultra-high-capacity Ink Tank System eradicates the need for cartridges, freeing the user from cartridge purchases and replacements. In their place, the ITS printers are bundled with a full set of ink bottles plus two extra black bottles, allowing the user to print up to a remarkable 13,000 pages in black and up to 6,500 pages in colour, delivering an extremely low cost per page.

Everyday use of the ITS printers is effortless and reliable, with high-quality prints delivered swiftly courtesy of the ISO print speed of 10ppm. Filing and refilling the purpose-built ink tank is also simple as Epson’s ink bottles are designed with a drip-free nozzle and clear labels. The ITS printers also come with a one year or 30,000 page manufacturer warranty, giving additional peace of mind.

“Our ITS models provide a fantastic solution for high-volume printing. These purpose-built ITS printers offer an ultra-low-cost cost per page, but more importantly, they’re also consistent and reliable. We already offer a wide portfolio, but these latest additions, with faster print speeds and borderless photo printing, are sure to appeal to even more customers.”

– Mukesh Bector, Regional Sales Manager, Epson East Africa
