MFPs are becoming big news for Remanufacturers

Multifunction devices that print, scan, fax and copy are growing in use in the small business and home marketplace.

Shipments of inkjet MFPs worldwide was 51,000,000 in 2006 and will grow to about 70,000,000 by 2010.  Colour laser MFPs will account for about 70,000,000 by the year 2010.

CAUTION: Printing May Be Hazardous to Your Health
A report produced by the Queensland University of Technology's Dr Lidia Morawska and Len Teplin from the Queensland Dept of Public Works has suggested that the laser printer could be as great a hazard to your lungs as puffing on a cigarette. 

In a test site office building 62 different printers were investigated, they ranged from CANON, HP COLOR Laserjet, HP Laserjet, RICOH and TOSHIBA.  From results 37 printers were non-emmitters of micrometer particles, 6 were low, 2 were medium and 17 were high emitters.  The models of high emitters were predominately HP and one TOSHIBA printer.

The report goes on to say that many factors should be considered as to why the models mentioned are high emitters. This could be the age of the machine, the model itself, the cartridge used and age of the cartridge.  Interestingly, the older the cartridge it would appear the fewer the emissions.  Yet another very good reason to remanufacture printer cartridges.

HP for its part has acknowledged the report but makes the very good point  that "while we recognise the utlra-fine, fine, and coarse particles are emitted from printing systems, these levels are consistently below recognised occupational exposure limits."

So the normal OH&S issues apply to the remanufacture of cartirdges and the use of the laser printers.

European Patent Office Revokes Canon Patent on Toner
The European Patent Office (EPO) has revoked the Europe-wide toner remanufacturing patent which it originally granted to Canon in 2005.

ETIRA (European Toner & Inkjet Remanufacturers' Association) showed presented evidence to the EPO Examiners that the Canon patent did not have any innovative component in its claim and therefore was unable to be patented.  For further information on this report consult the Recycler Magazine web site on www.therecycler.com .

 Printer cartridges can be ridiculously expensive but there are cheaper alternatives, writes Nick Galvin. You can almost feel Kevin Cobley's blood pressure rising when he talks about the cost of inkjet printer cartridges. "I think the whole thing is a scam," he says. "Someone needs to do something about it." read more
