Shaping the future of printing with heat-free technology
TURN DOWN THE HEAT
There’s no getting away from the fact that we’re facing a global climate crisis. Unless things change, we’re soon going to see some drastic changes to our planet’s ecosystems. One of the things we can change is how we consume energy.
Burning fossil fuels to create electricity produces vast amounts of CO2. Right now as a company and individuals, we need to act to save energy and start using renewable energy sources. Making a sustainable choice is now essential, not optional.
We need to TURN DOWN THE HEAT. Switch to Heat-Free Technology for low power consumption. Even making a small change can really help. If everyone on the planet makes one small change, it can have a huge positive impact. Starting one page at a time, we can change the story together.
CopyType's leading supplier Epson and National Geographic have come together to raise awareness around how conserving heat is a great way to minimize our impact on the environment.
In this short video, National Geographic Explorer Katey Walter Anthony explains how "Heat destroys permafrost. Conserving heat is one of the best ways to minimize our impact on the environment. Choosing Heat-Free technology to lower energy consumption will help to reduce green-house gas emissions and help us slow permafrost thaw in the arctic."
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.
