Environmental responsibility has become an important goal for many of today’s companies as there is ever mounting societal and political pressure to meet environmental targets, and you don’t want to be left out of the “green race.” When it comes to “green tech,” there is no doubt that equipping your office with eco-friendly machines is the best choice both ecologically and financially.

 

Every office can potentially become a more environmentally friendly place to work in. From paying attention to the smallest details to making more sound decisions regarding financial matters‍‍, ‍ it all makes a difference.

 

Making the choice

 

Which printer will provide better quality printing, which is more environmentally friendly, less expensive to operate and how do costs differ up-front? These are some questions to ask when choosing between an inkjet and a laser printer.

 

Inkjet Printers – The eco-friendly choice that is better for business

 

If you need a machine that is affordable to operate, Epson’s environmentally friendly inkjet printers are your ideal choice as they cost less at the outset and are cheaper to run in the long term than traditional laser printers.

 

As Epson’s inkjet printers do not use heat in the printing process, they consume far less power than laser printers. Epson’s inkjet printers consume up to 85% less energy than a similar-speed laser printer, which means that for a typical office that requires frequent printing, this can amount to distinct savings in their annual energy bills1.

 

Testing was commissioned by Epson to Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab. Two comparison models were selected from color laser multi-function printers in the 65-70ppm class. Tests were conducted at the devices’ default settings Epson inkjet printers also produce up to 85% less carbon dioxide than those of comparable laser printers2. This means that for every 6 cedar trees required to absorb the amount of carbon dioxide as a result of using a laser printer, an Epson inkjet printer requires only 1 cedar tree.

 

In terms of waste generation, Epson’s inkjet printers come with fewer components that need replacing, making them more convenient to operate as they require only changing of the ink and waste ink box as compared to the toner, drum, developer, fusers and more components for laser models. This is not a tiny detail as with up to 59% less replacement parts compared to laser printers3, using inkjet printers would result in a significantly reduced impact on the environment over the lifetime of a printer.

 

With less consumables required and less parts needing to be replaced, significantly less downtime and maintenance would be needed compared to a laser printer. In fact, the user intervention time required to replace the parts is less than half compared to a laser printer, which translates into improved office productivity in the long-term3.

 

Inkjet Printers – Uncompromising on speed and quality

 

Epson’s WorkForce Enterprise printer for the office

 

Thanks to its design and technology, the Epson inkjet printers offer plenty of benefits for business. The WorkForce range doesn’t just reduce your waste, but it also maximizes your uptime. Energy efficiency comes without sacrificing speed and quality.

 

using Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab standard energy consumption test methods. Calculations were based on a weekday workload of 2 x 4 hours printing + 16 hours in sleep/standby mode, and weekend energy use of 48 hours in sleep/standby mode. A total of 69 pages of workload test pattern .doc, .xls, .ppt, .html, and Outlook files were printed 6 times in each 4-hour printing period.

 

2 Annual CO2 output calculations were based on JEMAI-LCA Pro. Cedar tree CO2 absorption calculations were based on Japan Forestry Agency standards of 8.8kg CO2 per annum per tree.

 

3 Testing was commissioned by Epson to Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab. Two comparison models were selected from color laser multi-function printers in the 65-70ppm class. Calculations were based on the frequency and volume of consumables and replacement parts required to print 1 million pages (ISO/IEC 24712 test pattern) over a period of 5 years.

 

The WF-C20590 series boast features and print speeds superior to the ones found on laser models, producing brilliant prints at up to half the cost. It offers speeds of 100 ipm in black and color, plus a superfast first page out with minimum warm up time, which is perfect for busy workgroups. This comes without compromising on quality.

 

Epson’s linehead inkjet is designed around scalable technology that is originally used in large-scale label presses, which offers laser-sharp text and brilliant colors on a wide variety of media products. Some of its features include high print quality up to 600x2400dpi. It uses the PrecisionCore print chip that generates up to 40 million precise dots per second, with astonishing ink placement accuracy.

 

In conclusion: why choose Epson inkjet?
