Shaping the Future of Print with Heat-Free Technology

Discover the Future of Printing with Epson

Reduce energy consumption with Epson's heat-free printing process

Epson’s Heat-Free Technology does not require heat in the ink ejection process. Instead pressure is applied to the Piezo element, which flexes backwards and forwards firing the ink from the printhead.

vs.
Laser Printers

Although Laser and Inkjet printers look similar on the outside, the technology on the inside is what makes the difference

Laser Printering

This complex process involves separate stages. Laser printing requires preheating the fuser and then requires heat to fuse the toner to the paper.

Inkjet Printing

The inkjet printing process is a method that is reduced to only three stages to achieve the same printout.

Thermal Inkjet


Inkjet printers have two main technologies:

Thermal Inkjet, which uses heat

Piezo Inkjet, which is Heat-Free

THERMAL

INK EJECTION PROCESS

Thermal inkjet technology applies an electrical current to arm the ink to fire it through the printhead.

PIEZO

INK EJECTION PROCESS

Epson Heat-Free Technology does not require heat in the ink ejection process. Instead, pressure is applied to the Piezo element, which flexes backwards and forwards firing the ink from the printhead.

The Benefits of Heat-Free Technology

SAVE TIME
WITH HIGH-SPEED PRINTING

Epson Heat-Free Technology requires no heat to warm up when the printer is switched on or awakes from sleep.
Providing immediate printing, compared to laser printers, which require time to preheat the fuser.

LOW POWER CONSUMPTION

Epson Heat-Free Technology, unlike laser printing technology, does not require power to either pre-heat the fuser or to fuse the toner to the paper. This can result in significantly less power consumption.

Fewer replacement parts, lower environmental impact

Laser printers are typically engineered with more parts that require periodic replacement, such as the drum, transfer belt and fuser. Heat-Free technology does not contain any of those parts, so there is never a need to replace them. Additionally, since Heat-Free Technology only requires ink and printhead to produce output, it can significantly reduce the amount of consumables waste.

DESIGNED TO DECREASE DOWNTIME AND INTERVENTIONS

The Heat-Free Technology in Epson Inkjet printers contain fewer moving parts than typical laser printers, resulting in fewer potential failure points. Because the parts inside the printer do not get hot, there's no need to wait for the printer to cool down to carry out maintenance. As a result, Epson inkjet printers offer improved reliability and significantly reduced downtime.

SAVE MORE WITH EPSON

Due to the turnkey technology, Epson Inkjet “SuperTank” Printers average a 50% savings on supplies and operation cost

  • LESS INK WASTE
  • LESS POWER, MORE SAVINGS
  • FEWER PARTS THAN TYPICAL LASER PRINTERS RESULTING IN FEWER POTENTIAL FAILURE POINTS
