Blue Angel Award
Each machine is eco-labelled by the Blue Angel award. Machines are assessed individually and awarded the Blue Angel Award for minimal environmental impact, recyclability and low health risk.
Another element of the Blue Angel Award is the energy rating, all units also hold the Energy Star award. This is based on the energy used (or efficiency and energy not wasted). New Fuser-type Technology with an instant heat feature to fuse toners reduces the time and energy needed to process a job. In fact, each of our machines save enough on Electricity per month to pay for their own rental cost.
