Smarter printing: protecting the environment, protecting the business

Cost will always be at the top of the list when considering the best print options for the business. Yet there are two other key issues which now figure highly when SMBs are reviewing their print needs for today and tomorrow

- those of security and reducing the corporate carbon footprint both of which can translate as areas of potential cost savings for the business.

In its latest white paper, SMB Buying Considerations for Smarter Business Printing, sponsored by OKI Europe, IDC identifies that environmental considerations remain high on the agenda. Almost half (46%) of European SMBs who responded to IDC’s 2011 SMB Hardcopy survey identified energy use as of major concern. 

Other green issues at the top of their agenda included the availability of hardware and consumable recycling programmes, the use of recycled paper and the need to reduce packaging. Manufacturers  have already responded well to this changing customer landscape, with print solutions that typically consume 30% less energy and 20% less toner than legacy products.

Almost two-thirds (61%) of SMEs have functionality such as duplex and reduced energy consumption firmly on their list of ‘must have’ features when purchasing print hardware, as part of a broader ‘green IT’ agenda. The majority of SMEs also recognise the importance of education and training in changing the behaviour of their employees if environmental gains are to be firmly embedded in the business.

Although a number of industry watchers had expected HP's first 3-D printer offering to be a commercial product, Weisler, who has already established a knack for taking HP into new directions by launching a phablet in India and pushing HP heavily into the Android market, is going to deliver a consumer 3-D printer product that can be used by creative artists and do-it-yourselfers (DIYers), sources said.

300 dpi TSC achieves a printing speed of eight IPS

TSC Auto ID Technology have introduced a new line of 6" thermal transfer label transfers to the market (TTP-268M/366M) in the first quarter of 2011 - at a price claimed to be well below that of the competition.

In particular the high-resolution, 300 dpi TTP-366M achieves a printing speed of eight IPS and TSC claim that it is as powerful as the usually more expensive high-end devices of leading manufacturers. The TTP-366M is ideally suitable for 2D barcodes, for small print and for graphics printing.

Many sectors, including industry, logistics and agriculture, today require wide labels with a size of six inches (15.24 centimetres). Since the print also has to remain legible under the most varied weather conditions, very high-resolution and simultaneously powerful thermal transfer printers are required. The high price of the usually high-end devices is, however, a barrier for many potential customers.

With the TTP-366M, TSC Auto ID Technology EMEA GmbH is launching an extremely powerful 6" thermal transfer printer on the market which offers high resolution, a printing speed of 8 IPS and an affordable price. The TTP-366M is above all suitable for demanding applications in which 2D barcodes, small print or graphics printing are required. Its "little brother in the line, the TTP-268M, prints with a resolution of 203 dpi at a speed of 6 IPS.
