Nobody prints anymore. The piece of tumbleweed next to the printer probably had more net value.Does anyone know if a Ricoh Alficio Mp 301spf laser multifunction is worth salvaging or re-furbishing for sale? I found it on side of road. Was wondering what power cord it needed too if anyone knows
What universe are you in??Nobody prints anymore.
Paper is a 1000+ years old technology, but it has this awkward habit of working reliably when you need it and in often adverse environments.
The poor souls working in the paper industry wish everyone had your lack of faith in technology.
The forestry pulp/paper industry is fairly flat but newsprint and office paper are way down since 2000.
The motors and gear mechanisms are probably the most valuable thing.So does anyone know what's good to salvage from a laser printer HP officejet pro 8610? For a learning hobbyist? I'm currently a couple months in the learning and have gathered a lot of material to practice on, need to probably study more than hunting but idk lol
There's still plenty of home/work printing going on, the fall in demand for paper is more likely down to falling newspaper sales and rising Kindle sales
I remember on one project we had to print several documents where each was a few thousand pages so someone could sign the cover.Most larger companies are making it between difficult and impossible to print documents. One company I visited had a wall of shame for people who printed the most pages in the previous month - it was one page of a scrolling PowerPoint on a video display in the lobby (the next page said. "Welcome our visitor, GopherT". Everything is saved to cloud drives as pdf and most employees have two or more big monitors or crystal clear iPads to read documents.
I've been in specialty chemical sales and marketing for 30 years and paper mills use all kinds of additives. Each type of paper product needs specific materials. I would love to see evidence to the contrary but office paper (copy paper/laser printing paper) demand reached its peak in 2005 at 6M tons and down to 5M by 2010 and under 3M now. The toner/inkjet companies were hurt more than the paper industry by the decline.
Only if the company is set up for them with all the digital signature certification infrastructure.
