PrePeat Inkless and Tonerless Printer

More eco products are being introduced almost every day, each providing a unique proposition that would lessen our carbon footprint.  One of these new green technologies of recent years is the inkless and tonerless printer that uses a special type of paper that can be printed using UV light instead of ink.

Although the special paper is reusable, it would take up to 24 hours before the paper completely fades back to its original state.  Sanwa Newtec introduces a new kind of inkless printer that makes the special paper completely reusable.  The PrePeat rewritable printer uses a special paper made of PET plastic.  If the printed documents are no longer needed, simply insert the paper back into the printer and the paper turns black before losing its color again.

The PrePeat rewritable printer costs 500,000 yen (about US$5,600), while the special paper costs 300 yen for each sheet.  Each sheet of paper is said to work about 1,000 times, so imagine the cost your office would save in the long run.
