A sustainable solution

An environmentally responsible choice

RISO digital duplicators do not use tone for printing and hence are not fitted with heated rollers (used in laser printers and photocopiers to melt the toner particles and fuse them to the paper).

They also do not require warm up time when turned ON, contributing to energy conservation. Further to this, the high printing speeds reduce electricity consumption time. Other energy saving features include the Auto Power off function that automatically switches the unit off after a predetermined operation time and the Auto Sleep function that enables the duplicator to enter 'sleep mode'.

  • RISO digital duplicators are ENERGY STAR qualified.
  • RISO digital duplicators only require as little as 2 amps of electrical current when producing copies, less energy than three light bulbs.
  • RISO digital duplicator ink is soy based, which is more environmentally friendly than petroleum-based ink. Soy inks result in lower amounts of air pollution due to lower VOCs.
  • RISO digital duplicators are free from ozone emissions, toner particle emissions, silica dust, and other air pollutants.

RISO digital duplicators are built to last and last, reducing the amount of materials that end up in landfills and hazardous materials that can contaminate the environment.
