Epson L110 is a single function, color inkjet printer with a difference. The difference is that, instead of conventional ink cartridges that cannot be refilled, this Epson L110 printer has an ink tank system
that can be refilled or topped up quickly. To facilitate refilling or top-up, a set of 6 ink bottles is provided - 3 Black color bottles and 1 each bottle of the three colors. The tanks come with secure caps that prevent spillage. The distribution system has filters and a Choke valve
to ensure that there is no backflow or leakage during transport. The ink tank technology offers increased productivity of up to 12000 monochrome prints and 6500 color prints
The Epson L110 has measures 487 x 135 x 228 mm in the closed condition, while with trays open, it measures 487 x 265 x 480 mm with the trays attached and extended. The body of the L110 printer has a nice matte finish that gives it a suave look. The horizontal glossy band that runs around the body, close to the top panel edge, breaks the monotony of the matte finish. Another unique touch to the standard box design is the ink tank attachment
that is fixed on the left flank of the printer. This attachment gives a look of importance to the L110 compared to other box design printers.
The control panel, consisting of the Power button and Stop/Maintenance button, is located on the left side of the top panel. The top panel itself consists of the cover that can be opened to uncover the inner printing mechanism of the printer. You will find the print head that runs on piezoelectric on-demand inkjet method capable of both unidirectional and bidirectional printing. This inkjet print head has 90 nozzles for black ink and 29 nozzles each for color inks.
The idea of using ink tank system instead of conventional cartridge system is unique and very useful in cases where the print volumes are very high. This system uses a set of 4 ink tanks that are lodged in a housing that can be unhooked, removed and laid flat beside the printer. The next step would be to open the cover that locks the tank caps in place. Once the cover is opened, the individual tank caps can be removed and the ink can be refilled from the ink bottles.
