Pulse Technology is the first dealer in the Midwest to offer the cutting-edge, new Epson ink technology which CEO Chip Miceli believes will be a significant game-changer in his industry.
Miceli formally unveiled the new technology at the firm’s Chesterton, Indiana location this week, telling team members and some area business leaders that the Epson inkjet technology is the wave of the future when it comes to Managed Print Services.
Pulse Technology explained that a key differentiator in the Epson ink technology is that it does not require heat to print, and this results in vastly superior colour, longer life span for the ink itself, and a much more environmentally friendly solution.
Miceli recently travelled to Japan, with a small group of American office dealers, to meet with Epson officials and see first-hand how this approach to ink technology works.
“I was impressed,” said Miceli. “As an industry, we’ve moved solidly forward in the direction of reducing the costs of generating documents through a series of initiatives. Now with the introduction of the savings of Epson ink, we will take the initiatives even further.”
Pulse Technology will begin making this new ink technology available immediately. In the initial rollout, demonstrations will be available through the Chesterton location. Also, the company will schedule a series of “Lunch and Learn” presentations to introduce the technology to clients and interested parties. Later this year, there will be a similar rollout in the Illinois market, although Illinois customers can avail themselves of the technology through Pulse’s Chesterton location.
Epson ink technology is a departure from the traditional approach. Historically, thermal inkjet printers have relied on heat to push ink through their nozzles. This Precision Core technology instead uses piezoelectric crystal actuators which mechanically eject ink. The process does not require heat, and that results in printheads which are highly durable and have very little deterioration over time.
Miceli said, “Those of us who have embraced and advocated for the Managed Print Service (MPS) approach to document generation, which essentially guides customers into programs which reduce their cost per page for generating the paper they print or copy, are always on the lookout for additional advances. And now, with this unveiling of improved ink technology, customers will achieve several important goals: longer cartridge life, less environmental impact, superior print quality, and spectacular quality of documents. This is a great improvement and we look forward to promoting this advance through our own company and throughout our industry.”
