Toshiba to launch new printer with ink erasing technology

Toshiba has prepared a new type of office printers that will allow you to reuse printer paper.

The secret lies in the fact that the new printer will let you erase the ink on the paper up to 5 times, thus protecting the environment and saving you money for new printer paper.

The erasing technology is based on using heat. This technology can be found now in the FriXion Ball erasing pens. Unlike the pens, however, which can use heat generated by friction, the new Toshiba printer needs a separate erasing unit, which works with the help of a heating component.

Once you place used printer paper in the erasing unit, the paper goes through the heating component and comes out almost like new. A downside of this new technology is that if you place an erased sheet of paper next to a strong source of light you’ll be able to read what has been written there before so the erasing process is not exactly 100% successful although it comes pretty close. This is why you are not advised to use this technology if you work with sensitive data.

The new printer also features two additional technologies that help you with erasing paper ink. The first one determines how many times a certain sheet of paper has been erased and if the number exceeds five times the sheet of paper is discarded. The second technology offers to scan the paper and save all found data, before the paper gets erased. This is useful if you happen to find out you still need that information you just erased.

Of course you have to use special Toshiba ink and the printer in question but overall this is a really useful technology. Unfortunately the new printer will come to market at the end of 2012 and prices at the moment are unknown.
