Shaping the future of printing with Heat-Free Technology

Epson inkjet printers use less power, saving energy.

National Geographic CreativeWorks

Through a custom content campaign produced by National Geographic CreativeWorks, Epson is raising awareness around how conserving heat is a great way to minimise our impact on the environment. In the words of National Geographic Explorer Katey Walter Anthony, “Choosing Heat-Free technology to lower energy consumption will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help us slow permafrost thaw in the Arctic.”

Heat-Free Technology

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

Heat-Free Technology uses less power because it does not use heat to warm up. As inkjets have no fuser unit to heat, this results in significantly less energy consumption.

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.

Save time with consistent high-speed printing

Heat-Free Technology require no heat to warm up when it is switched on or awoken from sleep. This means you can start printing immediately.

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.
