Epson Heat-Free Technology
Epson 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. In contrast, other technologies work with heat. Laser printers need to heat the fuser to enable printing, for example.
Peizo Ejection Process
Unlike thermal inkjets and laser printers, Epson’s heat-free PrecisionCore technology does not require heat in the ink ejection process. Instead pressure is applied to the Piezo element, which flexes backwards and forwards to fire the ink from the printhead.
Thermal Inkjet Process
Thermal inkjet technology applies an electrical
current to warm the ink to fire it through the printhead.
The Benefits of Heat-Free Technology
Increase productivity and reduce environmental impact without compromise.
Save time with 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 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 page coverage.
Less power consumption saves energy and 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 significantly less energy consumption. Also, printer operating time and electricity consumption can be optimised because there are no delays caused by accumulated heat in the printhead.
Less intervention increases productivity
The Heat-Free structure of Epson PrecisionCore 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. As a result, Epson inkjet printers offer improved reliability and significantly reduced downtime.
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.
