About this product :
TOCANO has developed the laser-based monochrome inkless® printing technology which enables to print on multiple substrates without any consumables or coatings. Especially for printing on paper objects (copy paper, cardboard etc.) the inkless technology forms a revolutionary new step in the history of printing technologies.
Printing without consumables (cartridges, toners, etc.) or coatings in general means:
- A significant reduction of the printing costs
- Less environmental impact because no cartridges need to be produced and thrown away anymore.
- No man-hours spent the change of cartridges and also no potential downtime, because inkless printing enables a continuous printing process without interruption.
Existing inkless technologies either require a special coated substrate to print on (e.g. receipt printers) or are simply not accurate enough to print on thin materials with a sufficient readable contrast.
Tocano developed and patented an inkless printing technology which has an improved accuracy and significant better contrast. This makes it possible to print without consumables on thin materials, without giving in on the readability of the printed content.
We’re all familiar with the problems surrounding ink cartridges: they’re expensive, bad for the environment and just when you want to print that important document, your cartridge runs out of ink. Thanks to the startup company Inkless, a spin-off of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and part of the incubator YES!Delft, these problems are now definitely a thing of the past. Inkless has developed a worldwide patented technology with which you can print in black-white without the use of ink cartridges, toners or other consumables. ‘Every year 14 billion dollars worth of black ink cartridges and toners are sold worldwide. Our technology makes these cartridges and toners completely obsolete,’ says co-founder Arnaud van der Veen. “With inkless printing, we can completely turn the print market upside down.”
Opinions of techiesms :
This could end the era of ink cartridges. A very good innovative, i think this could be really useful to everyone as it will also reduce the cost of the ink and hence the printing cost also reduces. So thumbs up from me.
