Toshiba’s world-first erasable toner printer will make a business’ carbon footprint even smaller
Toshiba has released its second-generation erasable toner printer, integrating this world-first technology into a standard multi-functional printer. The new features make the re-use of paper a more efficient and easy process, providing businesses with more reasons to choose the latest environmentally beneficial printing solution.
Packed with state-of-the-art technology, the Toshiba e-STUDIO4508LP connects, integrates and simplifies workflows to enable users to be productive and efficient within a business environment. A customisable tablet-like user interface, gives easy access to the print, scan, copy, fax and erase functions. Other benefits include reduced spend associated with purchase, more storage, and less waste.
“Combining the erasable printing technology into one device makes this unique technology more accessible to businesses and gives users time saving benefits, particularly in smaller offices that often have space constraints.”
According to Bret Davies, General Manager Toshiba Australia and New Zealand, Toshiba Electronic Imaging Division, “Toshiba has recognised that staff are more environmentally conscious, but with productivity pressures, need to be able to print quickly and effortlessly without the need to be away from their desks for too long. Combining the erasable printing technology into one device makes this unique technology more accessible to businesses and gives users time saving benefits, particularly in smaller offices that often have space constraints.”
By combining the technology with a standard monochrome multi-function printer, users have the option to print on reusable paper and erase the toner from one standalone multifunctional device, which not only saves valuable working time but helps businesses reduce their carbon footprint.
Printing in blue toner, the erasable toner can be used on temporary documents such as e-mails or drafts. When a user has finished with a document, it can then be fed back into the printer where the toner will be removed, allowing the blank paper to be reused again.
Users can connect directly to the printer wherever and whenever they want with Cloud printing functionality. Multi station printing allows users to send print jobs from a computer and retrieve them at any convenient MFP around the business, and mobile printing gives the user flexibility to print directly from their mobile device via the Toshiba e-BRIDGE Print & Capture app or other compatible apps such as AirPrint, Google Cloud Print and Mopria Print Service.
The multifunction printer can handle large jobs effortlessly with speeds of up to 45 monochrome pages per minute (ppm) and up to 35 ppm with the erasable toner.
Combined print, scan, copy, fax and erasable print functions
Dual scan document feed that holds 300 sheets while processing documents at a speed of up to 240 images per minute
Optional printing in monochrome or blue toner
Cloud and mobile printing
Optional e-STUDIO RD301 erase unit for fast erasing up to 30ppm and sorting non-reusable from reusable paper.
E-BRIDGE technology for seamless integration into an existing IT infrastructure
Self-encrypting security feature Toshiba Secure HDD and further optional security functions for IEEE26000.1 compliance
*assuming the user uses a sheet of paper five times (i.e. reuse it four times) and they print 4,000 erasable pages per month, they can save 80% paper. This means that after five years the user will have saved almost 200,000 sheets of paper. In other words: The same amount of paper which they would usually use in one year, will now last five years.
