Toshiba unveils erasable ink MFP

December 13, 2012

MFP that can erase images and texts will be available in Japan from February 2013.

Visions & Trends has reported on the forthcoming release of Toshiba’s first MFP that can erase printed images and text, due for release in Japan from February 2013 with a worldwide launch planned shortly after.

The e-STUDIO 306LP MFP, combined with the e-STUDIO RD30, is described as able to “[remove] the toner colour from the printed documents. The instantly erasable toner is a special toner whose colour is removed by passing the paper through the RD30 [component] at high temperature”.

Noting that each sheet of paper used five times over constitutes a 57 percent reduction in the device’s total CO2 emissions, the RD30 component is also able to arrange paper into reusable and non-reusable sheets.

Toshiba states that the reusable paper solution “opens a window to a new work style in the office environment by encouraging users to re-use paper through the new system”.

The OEM has previously leaked information regarding its erasable ink technology in March 2012, in which The Recycler reported that start-up costs may be comparatively expensive, with each individual sheet of compatible paper costing $2 (€1.50).
