SHAPING THE FUTURE OF PRINTING WITH  HEAT-FREE TECHNOLOGY

Epson inkjet printers use less power, saving energy.

Switch to Heat-Free Technology for low power consumption

The earth is facing numerous environmental challenges. The answer to these challenges lies in every person and every company thinking about changing behaviour. And we can all play our part.

At Epson, we're focusing on changing the way we consume energy. Switching to Heat-Free Technology, which uses no heat in the ink ejection process and delivers lower power consumption. Starting one page at a time, every time we all print, we can change the story together.

So when you're making your next printing choice, think about switching to Heat-Free Technology. Turn technology to your advantage.

Conserving heat to minimise our impact

As rising temperatures and melting permafrost are changing the landscape of the tundra, heat conservation is a great way to minimise our impact on the environment. In this video, National Geographic Explorer and ecologist, Dr. Isla Myers-Smith, explains the effects of climate change on the tundra ecosystem, highlighting the importance of both large-scale solutions and the everyday actions of individuals as we look towards a sustainable future.

"It is critical that we understand the implications of Arctic greening. Choosing heat-free technology will lower energy consumption, minimising our impact on the environment."

The greening of the Arctic tundra

Ecologist Isla Myers-Smith researches how tundra plants respond to climate change and what it means for future ecosystems.

One woman's quest to understand climate change

National Geographic Explorer Katey Walter Anthony's work in the Arctic, including near Alaska's Knik Glacier, is furthering the understanding of how melting permafrost affects the planet's larger climate crisis.

Heat-Free Technology 

Printing process difference between Epson inkjet printers and others

Laser and inkjet printers may look the same on the outside. But it’s what’s on the inside that counts. 
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.

Less power consumption saves energy and money

Epson's Heat-Free Technology uses up to 80% less energy1, because it does not use heat to warm up. As inkjets have no fuse unit to heat, this results in significantly less power consumption.

Fewer replacement parts, lower environmental impact

Laser printers typically have more consumables and require periodic replacement of the drum, transfer belt and fuse in many cases. Thanks to Heat-Free Technology, our inkjet printers produce up to 96% fewer used consumables than laser printers2.

Save time with consistent high-speed printing

Heat-Free Technology requires no heat to warm up, when it is switched on or awoken from sleep. This means you can start printing immediately, making it up to 50% faster from ready compared to laser printers3.

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.

1Testing was commissioned by Epson and conducted by Key point Intelligence. Epson selected four competitor’s models from worldwide top4 best-selling vendor* in the 45-69 ppm color laser multi-function printer class. Epson Work Force Enterprise WF-C20600 D4TW with 60 ppm for Europe. This data is as of September,2020.
Devices were tested in default mode as per Key point Intelligence’s proprietary standard energy consumption test methods. Calculations were based on a weekday workload of 2 x 4 hours printing + 16 hours in sleep/standby mode, and weekend energy use of 48 hours in sleep/standby mode. A total of 69 pages of workload test pattern using DOC, XLS, PPT, HTML, PDF files and Outlook email messages were printed six times in each 4-hour printing period.

2Storage space comparison based on Epson calculations of storage space requirements for packaged consumables sufficient to print 6,000 pages on 12 SFP and MFP (3-in-1) printers selected from among the top-selling 50% of A4 monochrome laser printers (below-20ppm class) listed in IDC Worldwide Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker 2019Q2 data FY17 results. Average toner package unit volumes and yields for each model were calculated by Epson using toner package dimensions and yields published by the manufacturer for each model (as of August 2019). Actual size and number of toner cartridges required varies by laser printer model. EcoTank consumables quoted yields are simulated figures calculated by Epson based on ISO/IEC24711 methodology using ISO/IEC19752 test pat.

3Based on Epson calculations, Epson business inkjet time-saving calculated by comparison to business laser devices’ average lowest “Print/Copy time” (“from Previous Job”, “from Ready State” or “from Sleep State”) as reported by ENERGY STAR, added to the time taken to print at maximum speed the remaining pages in an average sized office print job and multiplied by the average number of print jobs per year, according to Keypoint Intelligence. Laser printer models identified using IDC, Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker, Q3 2016 to 2020 Q2 shipments, published Q2 2020.
