  • Pulse Technology CEO Chip MIceli visits Epson’s Japanese HQ to study breakthroughs in ink technology used in printing

    Published on November 7, 2019

    CAROL STREAM, IL, and CHESTERTON, IN: Chip Miceli, President/CEO of Pulse Technology (http://pulsetechnology.com), a leading technology company serving the Managed Print Services, Managed Network (IT) and office supplies/furniture needs of Greater Chicago and Northern Indiana, recently met with Epson Corporation leaders in Japan to study and discuss the latest advances in ink technology.

    Miceli was one of a few American office equipment dealers invited to Japan, where Epson officials shared details of this the new and improved approach to ink technology. Miceli believes that this latest technology, which does not require heat as part of the printing process, will be revolutionary because of improved quality of printing, as well as the improved environmental impact and cost savings.

    Pulse Technology will introduce this new ink technology in its Managed Print Services programs throughout its Illinois and Indiana locations. Also, the company will schedule a series of “Lunch and Learn” presentations to introduce the technology to clients and interested parties.

    Here’s how it works.

    Epson ink technology is a departure from the traditional approach. Historically, thermal inkjet printers have relied on heat to push ink through their nozzles. This advanced Precision Core technology instead uses piezoelectric crystal actuators which mechanically eject ink. The process does not require heat, and that results in printheads which are highly durable and have very little deterioration over time.

    Other benefits of the new technology include:

    • Deliver superior image quality at blazing speeds
    • Printheads can be used for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications
    • Little waste because of accuracy of how ink is deposited
    • Ecologically friendly system; less emitted ozone into the atmosphere
    • Technology which warns the user when levels are running low
    • More even ink flow

    Miceli is a leading authority on Managed Print Services (MPS) and a frequent speaker on the topic nationally and has mentored many people in his industry on this topic.

    He said, “Those of us who have embraced and advocated for the Managed Print Service (MPS) approach to document generation, which essentially guides customers into programs which reduce their cost per page for generating the paper they print or copy, are always on the lookout for additional advances. We have had opportunities to work with manufacturers and provide input into how they can make their equipment more user-friendly. And now, with this unveiling of improved ink technology, customers will achieve several important goals: longer cartridge life, less environmental impact, superior print quality, and spectacular quality of documents. This is a great improvement and we look forward to promoting this advance through our own company and throughout our industry.”
