Brother International Corporation Revolutionizes Tank Printer Category With New All-in-one Inkjet System
New INKvestment TANK all-in-one printers eliminate the need to replace cartridges for up to one year
BRIDGEWATER, N.J., July 18, 2018 – Today, Brother International Corporation, a leading provider of printers and all-in-ones for small and home offices, introduced a new line of Brother INKvestment Tank inkjet printers – featuring a revolutionary new ink system providing up to one year of ink in-box,1 combining the efficiency of high volume tanks with the ease of ink cartridges for exceptional savings.
The first of its kind, the Brother INKvestment Tank MFC-J995DW compact all-in-one printer ($199*) includes a re-engineered internal ink storage tank, moving the mechanism from traditionally in the cartridge to inside the device, significantly increasing the amount of ink in the cartridge. This new inkjet system provides the power of a tank while still maintaining the familiarity of a cartridge, all while delivering up to one year of ink in box for up to 150 worry-free pages per month.1
“Printers should be a tool to enhance productivity, so, we engineered the Brother INKvestment Tank to help solve two major printing challenges – unexpectedly running out of ink and having to replace ink soon after purchasing a printer,” said Phil Lubell, senior director of B2C product marketing at Brother. “By providing up to 365 days of ink1 without the need to replace cartridges, the new all-in-ones help entrepreneurs and home office users alike focus on all the other important things happening in a year.”
The Brother Intelligent Page Gauge2 also makes running out of ink mid-work flow a thing of the past. This exclusive and first-of-its-kind smart technology monitors actual ink usage and displays estimated remaining page counts on an intuitive 2.7” color touchscreen. When it’s time to replace the ink, high-yield, easy-to-insert Super and Ultra High Yield INKvestment Tank cartridges are quick, clean, and cost efficient. Print for less than $0.01 per page in black and less than $0.05 per page in color with INKvestment Tank Ultra High-Yield replacement cartridges3 for extended savings.
If one year of ink is not enough, the MFC-J995DW XL INKvestment Tank XL Extended Print model ($299*) delivers up to two-years of ink in-box4 for even more convenience and uninterrupted printing.
“People don’t hate ink, they hate having to change ink cartridges frequently and without warning,” said Eric Dahl, director of B2C product marketing at Brother. “When engineering the new INKvestment Tank models, we knew we had to change the way you ink. We wanted to keep the perks of a cartridge – simplicity, cleanliness, familiarity – combine it with the power of Brother tank technology, and provide a way for users to know when their ink supply is running low.”
Brother INKvestment Tank delivers incredible capabilities to help streamline workflows and flexible output options to handle a wide variety of projects. Print wirelessly from your desktop, laptop, smartphone and tablet5, plus no network setup needed for NFC one "touch to connect" mobile device printing and scanning6. Easily scan and share documents using Brother iPrint&Scan, Mopria Print Service, or print-from and scan-to popular cloud apps including Google Drive™, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive and more7 directly from the machine. All backed by free Brother At Your Side customer support for the life of the product.
