Epson inkjet printers awarded for energy efficiency

Epson has been awarded for its LX-10000F series and LX-7000F series of high-speed linehead inkjet multifunction printers, winning The Director-General’s Prize from Japan’s Agency for Natural Resources and Energy. The award was part of the Grand Prize for Excellence in Energy Efficiency and Conservation (Product Category & Business Model Category) awards program and sponsored by the Energy Conservation Centre, an energy efficiency hub of the United Nations’ SEforALL (Sustainable Energy for All) initiative.

The award-winning printers demonstrate particularly high energy efficiency, using only a fraction of the energy of typical A3 colour office laser MFPs. They easily conform to the requirements of the International ENERGY STAR Program and their maximum power consumption is constrained, allowing them to be used even in the event of a disaster when electricity supply is limited. In addition, high-capacity ink cartridges and infrequent replacement of limited lifetime parts mean reduced maintenance and greater resource conservation.

Epson’s research has found that the consumables and limited lifetime parts used in these printers have to be replaced only about half as often as those in a typical laser printer, based on a calculation of one million prints. The volume of waste is also about 50% lower.

“We have been working hard to increase office energy efficiency through inkjet innovation,” said Koichi Kubota, Representative Director, Senior Managing Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, Printing Solutions Operations Division. “This prize is tremendously encouraging, and we intend to continue to provide innovative products and services to meet the needs of environmentally aware users.”

Epson Australia General Manager Craig Heckenberg added, “The LX-10000F and LX-7000F series, known in Australia as the WorkForce Enterprise series, represents a true revolution in office printing. We are extremely proud of this award and feel it is a great recognition of the step-change environmental performance and savings that Epson’s proprietary inkjet technology can deliver for businesses.”
