Epson launches cartridge-free EcoTank ET-16600 A3 inkjet printer


Epson has launched its latest all-in-one A3 wide format printer with long-life cartridge free printing with extra-large ink tanks and enough ink included to last more than a year before you need a refill.

The EcoTank Pro ET-16600 uses PrecisionCore Heat Free printing technology which offers sharp text and accurate colour on pages up to A3+ size – 13-inch x 19-inch.

And it’s a multi-function printer with a scanner that can also scan up to A3 (11-inch x 17-inch).

Epson’s EcoTank Pro ET16600 can also copy and scan pages and includes 500-sheet paper capacity so you have plenty of ink and plenty of paper to be printing for months.

The device can be controlled via the 4.3-inch touchscreen.

The Epson PrecisionCore Heat Free printing technology uses advanced printhead technology for peak productivity and print quality.

Epson’s EcoTank Pro ET16600 is aimed at home and small office users who require A3 documents, photos and printouts in A3 size and in professional quality.

Out of the box, the ET-16600 can print up to 4,500 pages in black and white and up to 2,800 pages in colour without the need to purchase constant cartridge replacements.

And even when you do run out of ink, replacement bottles are priced from just $24.99 with enough ink to produce another 7,500 mono pages and up to 6000 pages in colour.

The PrecisionCore Heat Free printing technology offers printing efficiency with a greater number of nozzles into a smaller surface area.

The ET-16600 has a 50-sheet automatic document feeder with duplex printing, scan, copy and fax functionality.

There are two 250-sheet front-loading paper trays plus a rear tray for speciality media like photo paper, envelopes and labels.

Also onboard is Wi-Fi Direct so users can print directly from their devices which means no router or external network is required.

Users can also connect the printer to their network with an Ethernet cable so it can become part of your network.

It’s also easy to print from a tablet or smartphone with the Epson Connect app so you can print emails, photos, documents and web pages.

Epson’s new EcoTank Pro ET-16600 is available now via and from all authorised Epson retailers and resellers across Australia. It is priced at $1,699.
