Epson Inkjet Heat-Free Technology vs. Laser

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laser Printing

This method is a complex process involving eight separate stages and heat to warm up and fuse the toner to the paper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inkjet Printing

This method is comprised of only three stages to achieve a printout.

Epson Inkjet Heat-Free Technology vs. Other Inkjet

Within inkjet printers, there are two main technologies: One, which uses heat, and Piezo Inkjet, which is heat-free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other Inkjet

Other Inkjet technology applies an electrical current to warm the ink to fire it through the printhead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Epson Heat-Free Technology

This does not require heat in the ink ejection process. Instead, pressure is applied to the Piezo element, which flexes back and forth to fire the ink from the printhead.

The Benefits of Heat-Free Technology

 

 

 

 

Use less power and saves money

Epson Heat-Free Technology uses less power than laser technology because it does not use heat to warm up. As inkjets have no fuser unit to heat, this results in less energy consumption. Also, printer operating time and electricity consumption can be optimized because there are no delays caused by accumulated heat in the printhead.

 

 

 

 

Save time with 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 can deliver a fast page out time(FPOT), compared to laser printers, which need to preheat the fuser to print. Also, there are no delays caused by accumulated heat in the printhead, and consistent high-speed printing is ensured, even for documents with high-printing density.

 

 

 

 

Fewer 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. 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. The Heat-Free ink ejection process means that there is no heat damage to the printheads, so they last longer. Also because the parts inside the printer does not get hot, there is 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.
