Brother announces ink-refill tank series of printers
Range designed for high volume on a budget
Printer and consumables manufacturer Brother has launched a range of inkjet printers that feature a refill system in which the tanks are topped up directly from separately sold bottles rather than replacement cartridges.
"This exciting series introduces low-cost ink bottles with ultra-high 6,000-page yield, and a smart design that takes the hassle out of ink refilling," the company said in a statement.
The range includes a 3-in-1 inkjet Multi-Function Centre and a 4-in-1 inkjet Multi-Function Centre. The budget models are designed to cater to high-volume requirements, delivering, according to Brother, a 6,000-page yield for black ink. The company also points out that users minimise the risk of print-head damage that arises from using "non-official" ink.
"As the users of home offices and small businesses are becoming increasingly aware of cost-per-page and want to print more for less, the new inkjet series seems to be a perfect match for them," the statement added.
