Shrinking the Environmental Footprint of Offices with a Combination of Performance and Efficiency

Epson's business inkjet printers employ our original Heat-Free Technology to eject ink without heat. This technology achieves outstanding low power consumption performance. Our business inkjet printers with built-in PrecisionCore lineheads (WorkForce Enterprise WF-C series and AM-C series) are products with both a high-level printing performance of 40 to 100 pages per minute (ppm) and low power consumption. The WF-C21000 achieves a printing speed of 100 ppm1. This printing speed approximately doubles productivity in contrast to the printing speed of 50 ppm for general laser printers used in offices.

Ideas for the Office

Businesses are more sensitive than ever to environmental issues. Many try to save energy by adjusting their thermostat settings or adopting LED lighting. What they may overlook is that printers and MFPs account for about 10% of total power consumed in a typical office.

We see an opportunity to help them further cut their energy use and costs. Epson inkjet printers draw very little power when printing because ink droplets are ejected by the action of piezoelectric elements that contract under only a tiny applied voltage. In contrast, laser printers require heat–and a lot of electricity–to fuse toner to paper.

Power Consumed per Page

The graph below shows the estimated energy consumed per page. The figures, which are based on typical electricity consumption (TEC) values provided by the ENERGY STAR®, may be used as a guide to compare products running at different speeds. The graph indicates the superior energy efficiency of Epson WorkForce Enterprise series compared to typical A3 color laser office MFPs.

* Comparative simulation of power consumption per page. All A3 color MFPs with outputs of 40-100 ppm (excluding Digital Front End) which is posted on as of September 11, 2023. Our per page calculations are based on TEC measurement.

Reduces Annual Electricity Consumption

WorkForce Enterprise printers are equipped with PrecisionCore Heat-Free Technology and use no heat in the printing process. That means they consume far less power than laser printers, which in turn reduces their running costs. According to the results of an independent study, AM-C5000 may consume, on average, 80% less electricity per year than comparable competing color laser multifunction printers.

* Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab was commissioned by Epson to evaluate the WorkForce Enterprise AM-C5000 (50ppm) for Europe. Test data is from May 2023. Epson selected four competitor's models from worldwide top five best-selling vendor 3 in the 41-50 ppm color laser multi-function printer class. Devices were tested in default mode as per Keypoint Intelligence's proprietary standard energy consumption test methods. Calculations were based on a weekday workload of 2 x 4 hours printing + 16 hours in sleep/standby mode, and weekend energy use of 48 hours in sleep/standby mode. A total of 69 pages of workload test pattern using DOC, XLS, PPT, HTML, PDF files and Outlook email messages were printed six times in each four-hour printing period.

Supporting Energy-Efficient Offices with Inkjet Printing

Because inkjet printers use no heat in the printing process, they consume far less power than laser printers, which in turn reduces the running cost.

Epson inkjet printers use Heat-Free Technology to deliver advanced customer benefits.

Epson Heat-Free Technology does not require heat in the ink ejection process.
Instead pressure is applied to the Piezo element, which flexes backwards and forwards firing the ink from the printhead.
In contrast, other technologies work with heat. Laser printers need to heat the fuser to enable printing, for example.
The fact that they do not use heat means that they use less power and produce less CO2 emissions.

Preservation of Water Resources

The PaperLab A-8000 uses only about 1/100th 2 of the water it takes to make an equivalent mass of ordinary paper, thus helping to conserve the Earth's precious water resources.

2 Water consumption of ordinary paper includes water used in the growth of the trees that supply the virgin pulp. Ordinary paper means paper distributed in Japan.

Effective Use of Forest Resources

Paper is produced from wood taken from the forests, but the A-8000 spares our forests by producing new copy paper from used documents right in the office. Therefore, any paper produced by the A-8000 may be marked with the eco-label established by the 3R Promotion Forum Japan.

Reduction of Life Cycle CO2 Emissions

The A-8000 enables small paper recycling cycle by turning used paper into new paper right on site. Paper can be locally recycled for local consumption, producing fewer CO2 emissions across the life cycle compared to a traditional paper recycling process, when producing an equivalent mass of paper.


The A-8000 reproduces paper on the spot–a fresh surprise that can raise the environmental awareness of your staff and spawn further environmental action. Children who have had the opportunity to see paper recycled come away with insights and greater concern for the environment, as well as a desire to solve environmental issues with science.

Internal Case Study

Epson uses the A-8000 extensively to recycle and reproduce paper used on its own sites. Since 2018, this recycled paper has been used to produce orientation training materials and business documents. It is being used for calendars and employee business cards. This paper is also used for notebooks and memo pads, and we plan to further expand uses in the near future. The production of paper and paper-based goods has expanded the range of job opportunities for the staff of Epson Mizube Corp., a special subsidiary that supports the employment of persons with disabilities and is involved in these activities.

Epson also uses a machine that employs dry fiber technology to upcycle recovered paper into waste-ink pads for inkjet printers and sound absorbing materials for the A-8000.

User Comment

Beyond direct benefits: raise children's awareness of the environment

The city government of Shiojiri decided to install a PaperLab after examining the potential environmental, security, and job creation benefits. We saw that we could promote environmental conservation through local recycling of used paper without stressing water resources. We saw that we could strengthen security by destroying sensitive information on-site. And we saw that we could develop employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. I personally feel that the biggest benefit is that the PaperLab can inspire children. For a resource-poor country like Japan, the development of high-productivity industries is important for the national identity. So, I think it is critical to instill in children a sense of awe and excitement about technology and learning.

A tangible benefit of installing PaperLab is its productivity: We are producing, on average, 18,000 new sheets of paper per month from locally recovered paper and use them to make application forms etc. This has enabled us to reduce the amount of waste paper transported off-site for disposal by 20% (FY2017 results).

Make More with Less: Micro Injection Molding Machines for Superior Financial and Environmental Performance

The smaller the parts, the greater the waste of materials and energy consumed in the manufacturing process.
Epson’s micro injection molding machines solve this customer issue by allowing users to make more with less.
Epson’s AE-M3 and AE-M10 micro injection molding machines employ a proprietary disk drive system that dramatically reduces machine size, making them ideal for molding small, precision parts with exceptional energy efficiency.
These machines are standard-equipped with a hot runner system that minimizes waste and efficiently uses input resources.

Micro Injection Molding Machine
AE-M3 and AE-M10
* Only available in Japan

Fast, Precision Injection with Minimal Energy and Waste

Injection molding machines melt a plastic material with a heater and precisely inject the molten material into a mold cavity, where the material cools and hardens before being ejected as a molded product.

Epson's micro injection molding machine employs a proprietary disk drive system to melt and inject the plastic. The molten plastic is precision injected with minimal energy. The short melting path has the additional benefit of reducing damage to thermally sensitive materials, thus helping to ensure good molding quality.

The proprietary disk drive system dramatically reduces machine size and energy consumption

The hot runner system that is standard on these molding machines minimizes material waste from runners and other parts in the molding process. It also shortens cooling time after mold clamping, which reduces molding time (cycle time) and thus increases productivity.

The hot runner system minimizes waste plastic and reduces cycle time

Reduces CO2 by Conserving Energy, Saving Space, and Reducing Waste Plastic

Epson's micro injection molding machines have a far smaller environmental impact than the average 30-ton molding machine. In addition to unrivaled compactness and an energy saving design, our machines eliminate much of the waste material from runners and such that are generated in the part molding process.

* This evaluation compares the impacts of a 30-ton machine and a 3-ton machine when producing 500,000 Epson printer parts per month. Calculations were checked using a method of Mizuho Research & Technologies Institute. Epson's AE-M3 (3-ton molding machine) produces two parts at a time and has a molding time of 694 hours, whereas the average 30-ton molding machine of other companies produces eight parts at a time and has an average molding time of 382 hours. The manufacturing, transportation, and disposal stages of products and accessories are not taken into account when calculating CO2 emissions.
These are the estimated results of a hypothetical model based on Epson’s actual results, and the calculation results may differ depending on the conditions of the customer's equipment and materials.
Calculation conditions: Cubic volume of part was 0.5 cm3, plastic material was POM, the 30-ton machine was a composite imagined using the mean value of three representative models from other manufacturers, and the installation area was the molding machine installation space + incidental equipment + work space.

2022 Good Design Award
The micro injection molding machine AE-M3 and AE-M10 won a 2022 Good Design Award, which presented annually for designs that benefit and enrich our lives and society. In addition, these were selected for the Good Design Gold Award and the Good Design Best 100.

< Reasons for Award >
Global industries need to find ways to economically produce the goods that are needed in only the amounts they are needed. However, there is a structural dilemma in that high-mix, low-volume production results in large losses; in fact, making more with less-less waste, less energy-is hard to do. We live surrounded by all kinds of plastic products, most of which are made using large plastic molding machines that waste significant amounts of material. Epson's micro injection molding machines are revolutionary in that they can efficiently do the work of a large factory in an area the size of a desktop.
