Inkjet printers requires no heat to warm up when it is switched on or awoken from sleep.
Heat-Free Printing 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. Consistent high-speed printing is ensured, even for documents with high-printing density. Besides that, Heat-Free Technology uses less power than laser technology because it does not use heat to warm up. As ink-jets have no fuser unit to heat, this results in significantly less energy consumption. Furthermore, 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, inkjet printers use fewer parts that need replacing than in a laser printer, and printheads are not a consumable. This reduces the environmental burden of manufacturing and recycling the additional resources. Lastly, the Heat-Free structure of inkjet printers means that there are fewer parts that can fail, which reduces the amount of intervention required. As a result, inkjet printers offer reliability and significantly reduced downtime.
