Colour Inkjet Multi-Function Centres

Brother Colour Inkjet MFCs are the perfect technology for your home and office. The range allows you to colour scan, copy, print and fax from one compact unit designed for your use.

Eliminating the frustration of having to throw away unused inks, Brother's colour inkjet machines have separate ink cartridges for each colour. All you have to do is replace the empty cartridge - reducing waste and cost.

Benefits of Using Genuine Brother Ink Cartridges?


Correct Colour Matching

  • Brother ink is optimised for every Brother inkjet Multi-Function Centre (MFC) using a predetermined ink formula to calculate the mixture needed to create vibrant colours.

Specially Formulated Ink for Smooth Printing

  • Brother ink is specially formulated to achieve the right fluidity to flow through critical points of the print head with ease.
  • This ensures a balanced distribution of ink on the page, resulting in a more optimal balance of colours.

Anti-smear and Anti-clog
To prevent smearing, Brother ink penetrates and dries on the paper quickly to match the high print speeds of Brother MFCs.

  • This ensures the ink will dry completely between page prints for clean and smudge-free printouts every time.
  • Brother Ink also contains carefully selected chemicals to prevent clogging of the print head for smoother operation, reliability and durability of your Brother machine.

Advanced Capillary Tube Printing Technology in Brother Inkjet MFCs


How capillary tube printing technology works
Unlike other models in the market, Brother’s new multi-function range features revolutionary technology that eliminates the need for ink cartridges to be situated above the print head. Instead, cartridges are located separately and ink distributed via tubes direct to the print head for printing.

Advantages of capillary tube print technology
By moving the cartridges off the print head, Brother has managed to create a printing mechanism that offers the following benefits:

Compact lower profile design
As the ink tanks are no longer attached to the print head, Brother’s MFC can be built more compact with a lower profile and designed with sleek lines to suit today's modern home and office environment.

Low power consumption
Without the print head carriage having to carry heavy and bulky ink tanks, it is now possible to significantly reduce power consumption, saving the environment and money.

Quieter printing
Due to the lighter weight of the print head, there is less mechanical movement within our MFC creating less vibration, resulting in smoother and quieter print operation.

Increased reliability
With less weight on the print head, there is less movement and vibration, subsequently reduces wearing on the machine components.

Separate Ink Cartridges That Save You Money
When one colour runs out, you only have to replace the cartridge for that colour. Although the initial purchase price of any machine is important, it is also a good idea to check that your machine is cost-effective to run over the long term. With economy in mind, all machines in our colour MFC range have separate colour ink cartridges and long life print heads. So, when one colour runs out, only that colour needs to be replaced rather than the complete set of colours.

Furthermore, the ink cartridges are replaced separately to the print head, for great economy and reliability.

Genuine Brother ink is the result of extensive research & development of over 100 different elements.

When combined in the right quantity and configuration, these elements ensure reliable operation and protection of your machine and its long-life print head.

How the Inkjet Printing Process Works…


The Brother print head has four inkjet elements each for one of the 4 inkjet colours. These elements contain microscopic nozzles for delivering the ink.

Ink is sprayed through these nozzles in the print head. An electric charge is used to form the droplets as they are sprayed.

The print head moves back and forth across the paper creating the image.

Gears and rollers advance the paper with exact precision each time - ready for the next pass of the print head.

On print completion the paper is ejected
