Solid ink is a proven color technology only offered by Xerox. A solid ink printer or multifunction printer uses solid sticks (or blocks) of no-mess, non-toxic ink instead of toner or inkjet cartridges. Solid ink is easy to use, produces incredibile color print quality, is cost-effective, and is very good for the environment.
To understand what makes solid ink technology extraordinary, you have to start with the ink itself
Solid Ink is formulated from a non-toxic, resin-based polymer, similar to a crayon. Solid Ink sticks are safe to handle and cannot spill, leak or smudge on your clothes.
Stringent manufacturing ensures colors are consistent from stick to stick and page to page. 100% of all ink is inspected.
Watch how simple it is to load Solid Ink sticks.The cyan, magenta, yellow and black Solid Ink sticks are clearly numbered and specially shaped so they drop into the correct slots for easy loading.
You can load multiple Solid Ink sticks for long, uninterrupted printing and "top off" the ink at any time.
Because of Solid Ink's cartridge-free design, its packaging is small enough to easily fit in your desk drawer. And there is no cartridge to deplete or dispose of.
Compared with color laser printing technology, Solid Ink generates up to 90% less printing waste because there are no cartridges to dispose of and less packaging to add to landfills.
The cartridge-free design and minimal packaging also result in:
less to manufacture
less storage space
better transportation efficiency
Solid Ink's true advantages are in its differences from laser and inkjet technologies. Here's where Solid Ink is strong:
More consistent print quality page after page and on any media, including recycled paper.
Easier to use with no cartridges to load and unload, and no mess.
Less waste with no cartridges to dispose of, and far less packaging.
Low run cost compared with color laser printing technology.
No paper curling or wrinkling that often plagues inkjet and color laser printers.
Faster than inkjet technology.
No special paper needed, unlike some inkjet printers.
Prints a wider range of colors than most color laser devices.
Fewer parts so less can go wrong.
Xerox solid ink printers generate up to 90% less waste than comparable laser devices and, from manufacturing to transport to end of life, solid ink printers have up to 30% lower lifecycle energy demand and up to 30% smaller carbon footprint
Cartridge-free design means that loading ink is as easy as loading a stapler - no other printer manufacturer can make that claim
