Consumables for printing require the use of fossil fuels and raw materials both on the ink, the ink cartridges and packaging of the cartridges. The distribution process from production to use and disposal takes up a lot of energy, process waste and emissions. Inkless provides a sustainable printing technique which doesn’t require consumables and thereby minimises waste and carbon footprint while reducing operational costs.
Inkless’ patented technology enables high resolution black‐and‐white printing without the use of ink. Cartridges, toners or special coatings are no longer necessary. The printing of text, images and graphics can be applied to paper, labels and packaging surfaces. The innovative printing technology can be incorporated into existing production lines. This makes it a very effective and environment friendly printing technology for multiple markets: coding & marking devices, digital production printers, retail printers and office and consumer printers.
The printing takes place in competitive speed levels and provides operational efficiency, since replacement of consumables as cartridges is not needed. The Inkless solution therefore saves businesses downtime and causes much less environmental impact. There are several patents on the technology.
