Epson is working alongside National Geographic on the Turn Down the Heat Campaign to combat climate change and reduce carbon emissions. Up to 10% of the projected global warming this century could come from thawing permafrost, the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, emitting five times more methane than previously considered. Emissions from these thermokarst lakes are expected to peak by 2050, it only takes around one year for these powerful greenhouse gases to mix into our atmosphere.
While most of us wouldn’t want to face the fact that we are facing a global climate crisis, we are. If we do not make any changes soon we will soon see some differences in our ecosystems, which is why we need to do something about it. Firstly how we consume energy, which is why we are promoting Epson’s Turn Down The Heat campaign, to make our customers change their ways in how we are using technology and how we can change our planet. We are switching to Heat-Free technology for low power consumption.
Heat-Free Technology from Epson
Consistent high-speed printing
Epson Heat-Free Technology requires no heat to warm up when it is 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 to preheat the 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 does not use heat to start up. As inkjets have no fuser unit to heat, this results in significantly less energy consumption. Epson’s heat-free technology does not need to wait for the ink to cool down between printings, meaning it speeds up the process, this results in less energy consumption. Epson’s heat-free technology enables consistent ink ejection, meaning it is running at a fast speed, so the printer will be in action for less time, helping to reduce running costs.
Fewer parts reduces the 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 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.
