Under normal circumstances, 80% of the printing paper is discarded within a week after printing in the office, resulting in a huge waste of paper resources. Preview Printer is a printer that can promote the recycling of office printing paper. Through irreversible heat sensitive ink and the micro piezoelectric printing technology, printing under normal temperature and pressure can be achieved. The writing will disappear by heating the printing paper, so as to print the next time. The printer regularly reminds users to recycle unused printing paper and real-time ranking among the companies is performed.
