Why Warm-up Time Matters

If you are looking for a new office machine its probably because you need to save time. Copiers are printers will help you cut down on the time a number of functions take. They will free up your work day to accomplish more— if you get a machine that actually fits your needs. Unfortunately, when people are thinking of the efficiency of their copier they only look at print speed and never consider why warm-up time matters.Fotolia 80720928 S

It makes sense that most people would consider print speed to be the most important determinate of productivity. If you can print fast then you can save time. However, not every company works the same and not everyone needs faster print times. Some people do smaller print jobs and need their printer or copier to work when they want it to work.

Warm-up time is the time it takes for your copier to go from being completely off to producing the first print. This matters differently depending on what kind of company you work for.

For example, a small family business may not need blazing print speeds if they are only ever printing 10-20 pages at a time. You won’t really be saving that much time in the long run because the print jobs are so small.

Alternatively, a large company that prints thousands of papers a day will absolutely need fast print speed. They don’t care how long it takes for the copier to warm-up because once it’s on it won’t be turned off for the rest of the day.
