Xerox has developed a new type of toner using nanotechnology which it claims can help cut the overall power consumption of digital printing devices by 15 to 30 per cent.
The new Ultra Low-Melt Emulsion Aggregation Toner was developed by scientists at Xerox Research Centre Canada (XRCC) and has a much lower fusing temperature than previous toners.
The fusing temperature is the heat required to seal the toner on the page, and is the most power-intensive process in printers and multifunction devices, accounting for 50 to 80 per cent of the total power used.
The new toner melts at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 7.2 Celsius) lower than the Emulsion Aggregation toner being used in current Xerox products, but the researchers promised that the change does not compromise image quality or any other aspect of performance.
"This was the most difficult toner design we have ever worked on," said Hadi Mahabadi, Xerox vice president and manager of XRCC.
