Epson and National Geographic have come together to raise awareness around how conserving heat is a great way to minimise impact on the environment.

Switching to Heat-Free Technology gives you lower power consumption. Even by making this small change to your printers can really help our planet. If everyone adopted small changes the overall impact could be HUGE. Starting one page at a time Epson want to work to change the story together.

Increase productivity and reduce environmental impact without compromising on your print quality. Epson Heat-Free Technology is designed to deliver advanced customer benefits without the need for heat. Laser and inkjet printers may look the same on the outside, however it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The Heat-Free printing technology from Epson has eliminated the need for heat in the ink ejection process.

Consistent high-speed printing

Epson Heat-Free Technology requires no heat to warm up when it’s switched on or awoken from sleep. This means it starts printing immediately making it up to 50% faster from ready compared to laser printers, which need the heat fuser to print. Consistent high-speed printing is ensured, even for documents with high-printing density.

Less power consumption saves energy and money

Epson Heat-Free Technology uses up to 83% less energy than laser technology because it doesn’t require heat to start up. As inkjets have no fuser unit to heat, this results in significantly less energy consumption.

Few replacement parts, lower environmental impact

Laser printers typically have more consumables and require periodic replacement of the drum, transfer belt and fuser in many cases. Epson inkjet produces up to 96% fewer used consumables than laser printers. Thanks to Heat-Free Technology, our inkjet printers use fewer parts that need replacing than in a laser printer, and our printheads are not a consumable. This reduces the environmental burden of manufacturing and recycling the additional resources.

Less intervention increases productivity

The Heat-Free Technology structure of Epson inkjet printers means that there are fewer parts that can fail, which reduces the amount of intervention required. As a result, Epson inkjet printers offer reliability and significantly reduced downtime.
