Shaping the future of printing with Heat-Free Technology

24.06.2021 | Bulgaria

S&T Bulgaria offers on the market the latest color business multifunctional A3 devices from Epson, part of the Workforce Enterprise series, with a print speed of 60-75 pages per minute

Epson inkjet printers use heat-free technology in the ink ejection and application process. Instead, pressure is applied to the piezo element, which bends back and forth and pushes the ink out of the print head.

Epson and National Geographic have teamed up to raise awareness of how reducing energy consumption is a great way to minimize our impact on the environment. Saving heat is one of the best ways to minimize our impact on the environment. Choosing a heat-free technology to reduce energy consumption will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help us slow down the thawing of permafrost in the Arctic.


Advantages of Epson's RIPS inkjet technology

    - continuous high-speed printing;

    - high resolution;

    - low power consumption - 160-180 w compared to 360 w with a laser printer;

    - less spare parts, less impact on the environment - no transfer drums, firing heads, fusers, etc. characteristic of laser and led devices;

   - inks do not smudge and do not dry on the printheads, new technological pigment inks are used;

   - SRA3 size and the ability to straighten the paper allow printing on thicker media to make posters and advertising materials.


The benefits of Heat-Free Technology

Increase productivity and reduce environmental impact without compromise.

Less power consumption saves energy and money

Epson's Heat-Free Technology uses up to 83% less energy, 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 printers.

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 printers.

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.
