Ever wondered what your copier would look like in the future?
Well wonder no more…
Toshiba has released its second-gen erasable blue toner MFP, integrating this world-first technology with a standard B&W multi-functional printer. This hybrid machine stems from the first-gen release of Eco Loire back in 2012, where the printer would print the erasable blue documents and the RD30 would erase the toner.
Users can connect directly to the printer wherever and whenever they want with Toshiba’s e-Bridge Next platform, integrating 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.
How the printer works
To put it simply, the printer is essentially used the same way a normal printer is, but in reverse. Once you have printed a document with the erasable toner, the document is fed back into the printer, heated back up, and the blue toner is removed.
From the Machine’s print driver, you have the option for either normal B&W printing, or new blue erasable printing, just as you would when printing colour. This functionality is also found from the printers 9” tablet like touch screen, when copying.
To use the erase function, you simply load the erasable documents into the designated erasable trays, which is highlighted green. At the touchscreen, choose where you’ve loaded the documents, and press Start. The erased documents exit the machine like a normal print job ready to be reused.
The e-STUDIO3508LP and 4508LP removes the unique blue toner colour from printed documents so paper can be re printed up to 5 times.
Reduce your carbon foot print
Due to the unique re-use of paper. Reduction in paper usage by up to 80% can be achieved. Such paper saving can also reduce Co2 emission by up to 50%.
Improved blue toner
The e-STUDIO3508LP and 4508LP now features a new high pigment toner with increased density for improved readability. The unique blue toner is used to notify users that paper can be erased and reused.
Erasing and Scanning
Documents printed on the e-STUDIO3508LP and 4508LP can be erased at the touch of a button, or can be combined with the e-STUDIO RD301 eraser unit which also provides added the convenience of automatically sorting paper from erased documents into reusable and non-reusable sheets. What’s more, the e-STUDIO RD301 comes with a scanner that makes it easy to digitise and store documents electronically.
