Toshiba Tec has come up with an innovative idea that can help us save lot of papers. It is developing a revolutionary copier system that can erase printed text from regular copy paper.
The technology behind this makes use of a special erasable toner. So when the printed page is passed through the color erasing device, the printing disappears and the paper can be used again.
“This is a special kind of toner that loses its color when heated, so this technology makes it look as if the printing has disappeared. With this system, one sheet of photocopy paper can be used at least five times, so this product combines economy with ecology.”
“We haven’t yet decided how to price this system. But we’d like to make sure it doesn’t increase customers’ printing costs much compared with the systems they currently use. Reusing paper makes the cost per sheet substantially lower, so we’d like to make this system as inexpensive as possible.”
