6 steps to control the use cost of printing consumables

High cost of consumables? Teach you how to control the use cost of printing consumables

For most enterprises, the price of a printer is not high. The real cost is the cost of consumables in la ter use. “Consumables=money”.

As the most common standard office equipment, the use of printers in the later period is a protracted war that requires long-term cost consumption, and is the focus of the company’s office cost control. The large consumption in this area undoubtedly increases the expenditure pressure on the operation of enterprises.

Frugality, simplicity and human virtue. Here are some ways to save the cost of consumables collected by us. I hope they can help you.

1.Centralized printing

Every time the ink-jet printer is started, the printer should clean the print head and initialize the printer.

So as to fill the ink delivery system with ink, which will obviously cause a waste of ink.

In addition, when using the CANON printer, press and hold the “resume” button (reset) on the printer for more than 2 seconds, and the printer will also clean the print head. Therefore, if the printer is out of paper, press the “resume” button after loading the paper, which should not exceed 2 seconds.

2.Enable Ink Saving Mode

Many printer drivers have an ink saving mode option that can be enabled.

But this function is generally not selected by default. If you want to print internal communication only documents, you can use the ink saving mode. After the ink saving mode is enabled, the printed text will be displayed in the form of hollow text (only border lines), which greatly saves the use of ink or toner. Some models use this mode, It can save 75% ink.

3.Do not replace the ink cartridge immediately

We know that the inkjet printer detects the ink level in the ink cartridge through an inductive sensor. As long as the sensor detects that the ink level of one color is less than the value set in the printer, it will prompt to replace the ink cartridge. At this time, you can take out the ink cartridge and put it in immediately, and then use the cleaning button in the control panel or the tool software that comes with the printer to clean it. Repeat several times, and most of the printers can be used normally.

4.On demand closing vs long-term startup

When the machine is turned off when it is in use, the damage caused to the printer by self checking and switching on current.

And the printer will warm up when the machine is turned on and off, making its power consumption much higher than that when it is standby.

Therefore, frequent switching on and off may not achieve the purpose of energy saving and life extension. When the machine is started for a long time, the standby power consumption and heating have an impact on energy saving and machine life.

At the same time, in the process of long-term standby, in order to ensure normal printing, the printer will still conduct regular self inspection and may still consume consumables.

In order to reduce the printing cost as much as possible. We need to find a balance between the two statements. That is, to concentrate printing as much as possible and reduce the number of times the printer is turned on and off.

5.Make good use of double-sided printing

Double sided printing means when the printer finishes printing on one side of the paper.

It sends the paper to the double sided printing unit, and then turns the paper inside the unit and sends it back to the paper feed channel to complete printing on the other side. For printers with double sided printing function, it is important to enable the double sided printing function. For printers without double sided printing function, you can manually turn the paper to complete double sided printing.

6.Select reliable suppliers

The initial purchase of complete machine is cheaper, the later consumables are expensive.

The initial purchase of the whole machine is more expensive than the later purchase of consumables. Therefore, before purchasing the printer, you can tailor the whole machine to your needs.

The procurement practice shows that the most effective way to control the procurement cost of enterprises is to select high-quality suppliers, provide the best procurement scheme, ensure product quality, and provide worry free after-sales service.
