World’s First Erasable Printer/Copier NZ Launch Next Week!

World’s First Erasable Printer/Copier NZ Launch Next Week!

“For an office printing 4000 pages per month, after five years of reusing and reprinting you'll have saved up to 192,000 sheets of paper - that's a big saving. It's a major breakthrough in the push towards a paperless office.”
Jon Dee - Founder of the Australian environment and anti-pollution group Do Something!

A new multi-functional printer (MFP) that for the first time allows users to print and erase documents then re-use the paper will make its NZ debut to media in Auckland on Tuesday (Mar 18).

Developed by Toshiba, the world- first Eco-technology can reduce paper usage by up to 80 percent; saving money and helping users reduce their carbon footprint.

The Eco MFP also slashes carbon dioxide emissions associated with standard machines by 50 percent.

The Toshiba system comprises two machines: the e-STUDIO306LP multifunction copier that uses a special erasable toner and the RD30 erasing device that uses heat to erase what has been printed, allowing paper to be used up to five times.

Before applying the heat, it can scan the output to file via network or USB drive for archiving so that its data is not lost.

It can erase 30 sheets per minute and then sort through and eliminate any damaged paper from being reused.

The system delivers colour scanning and other functions typically associated with large Toshiba multi-function copier-printers.

These include rapid warm-up, fast first copy times, double-sided printing, and print speeds of up to 30 pages per minute.

There’s also walk-up printing, simply by plugging in a USB flash drive; and a full 9” LCD Touch Screen with large, easy-to-read control buttons.

Cost is expected to be around $7, 000.00 and a number of organisations have already bought it sight unseen.

Those that have high volume printing needs – for example in education, law, finance and government - will benefit significantly from reduced costs while supporting the environment.

The Eco system is part of Toshiba’s programme to produce eco-friendly products that drastically reduce a company’s carbon footprint by using less energy and making efficient use of resources.
