Kyocera Ecosys Laser Printer
Over 350 million toner cartridges end up in landfills in North America every year. This is equivalent to approximately 700 million pounds of post consumer waste. Much of this will take over 1,000 years to biodegrade. While toner cartridge recycling has benefits, toner cartridges can only be recycled 3-4 times before being discarded. The end result is that recycling traditional laser printer cartridges is not a sustainable method of printing.
Kyocera Ecosys laser printers are cartridge free. Kyocera's Ecosys laser printer design completely eliminates post consumer cartridge waste. Once a toner is depleted, it is simply placed in a recycle bin and recycled into other plastic products. No components ever make it to the landfill. Kyocera Ecosys laser printers are earth friendly!
Lower running costs
The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of KYOCERA ECOSYS® printers are invariably the lowest in their class. TCO includes all costs: direct, such as the purchase price and operating costs per page and indirect, including maintenance, replacement of consumable products such as cartridges, use of print media, administration of the machine and the costs of energy to power it. In organizations where a lot of material is printed or copied the cost of consumables can rise dramatically, particularly where relatively expensive cartridges containing the drum, developer and toner has to be thrown away/recycled and replaced frequently. KYOCERA's ECOSYS® printer technology significantly reduces these costs: cartridge-free printing means no replacement.
Long life components
KYOCERA's expertise in the ceramics industry was the catalyst for the first amorphous silicon printer drum with a surface that is second only to diamond hardness. This has been further developed so that printers can be expected to have a very high workload. Tiny ceramic particles embedded in KYOCERA's 'Ecotone' toner continually polish and recondition the drum during normal printing. The drum is guaranteed to last for up to 500,000 pages or three years, while our competitor's lower volume products have drums guaranteed for only up to 100,000 pages. The hard-wearing ECOSYS® drum introduces new levels of paper handling - sheets up to 250 gs/m2 will pass through without affecting the drum. Sizes can be altered using different paper trays and there is also the facility to customize the paper size and type, as well as use a manual paper feed.
Conventional printers use an imaging cartridge which contains drum, developer and toner into a single, disposable unit. When the toner has depleted, the entire cartridge must be disposed/recycled and replaced with a new unit at a significant cost to the user. In all KYOCERA ECOSYS® laser printer models, the drum is separate from the toner. That is why with KYOCERA there is no need to replace everything; only the toner. KYOCERA ECOSYS® laser printer toner kits also have the added benefit of lasting up to 40,000 pages (5% coverage). The result is that KYOCERA ECOSYS® laser printers create less waste than any other competitive product, while having the lowest comparable cost per print.
SYStem Printing Modularity and Functionality
A printer is usually selected on the amount or type of work required at the moment of purchase, but what happens when the business grows or tasks change? With KYOCERA ECOSYS® laser printers a wide range of paper trays and functions can be added, along with several document output options. KYOCERA ECOSYS® laser printers and copiers will easily handle paper and cardstock, self-adhesive labels, overhead projection transparencies, and envelopes. This means that the initial investment in a long life, reliable document management system remains valid and secure, along with all the advantages that were reasons for the original purchase. Upgrades are also available with several KYOCERA ECOSYS® laser printers so that even the engine-speed can be enhanced, maximizing the long term benefit of the investment, especially as the operator's business grows. Technological progress means that computer environments and networks are advancing all the time: a printer that operates within all recognized networks is vital to ensure that it does not get left behind and becomes redundant.
