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.
Epson Inkjet Heat-Free Technology vs. Thermal Inkjet
Within inkjet printers, there are two main technologies: thermal inkjet, which uses heat, and Piezo Inkjet, which is Heat-Free.
The Benefits of Heat-Free Technology
Designed with fewer replacement parts that can result in less waste
Laser printers are typically engineered with more parts that require periodic replacement, such as the drum, transfer belt and fuser. Heat-Free technology does not contain any of those parts, so there is never a need to replace them. Additionally, since Heat-Free Technology only requires ink and printhead to produce output, it can significantly reduce the amount of consumables waste.
Engineered todecrease downtimeand interventions
The Heat-Free Technology in Epson Inkjet printers contain fewer moving parts than typical laser printers, resulting in fewer potential failure points that may require intervention to rectify the issue. Also because the parts inside the printer do not get hot, there's 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.
