Printing Process Comparison

Inkjet vs. Laser

Printing Process Comparison

A Research White Paper

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.


The Benefits of Heat-Free Technology

Less Power Consumption

Heat free technology uses less power because it does not use heat to warm up. This results in significantly less energy use.

Fewer Replacement Parts Saves Money

Laser printers typically have more consumables and require replacement of the drum, transfer belt and fuse in many cases. Our printers use fewer parts that need replacing.

Save Time, Consistent High Speed Printing

Heat-Free Technology requires no heat to warm up when it is switched on or awoken from sleep. This means printing starts immediately.
