FAQ - Frequently asked questions
1. What does it mean "powered by Memjet?”
It means that the device utilizes Memjet's breakthrough printing technology including a page-wide, A4 printhead that can print a full color page in just one second, as well as ink, a controller chip and printing software. Memjet is a valuable “in-brand” that helps OEM partners differentiate themselves in the market with an entirely new class of printers. This new class of printers bears the special logo mark: “Powered by Memjet”
2. Isn't the Evojet Office just the same as other Memjet partners’ printers?
Memjet has created a common reference system that Lomond and other Memjet partners have leveraged in order to help accelerate time-to-market, but there are differences. Lomond has special software that optimizes color printing on a compelling range of Lomond papers and gives office customers many exciting options for creating high value color office documents like sales presentation flyers and brochures. In the future as Lomond expands the Evojet office product line, you will see Lomond products become increasingly unique in their design and features.
3. Are the ink cartridges chipped? Why doesn't Lomond provide their own ink at a lower price?
Because the Lomond EvoJet Office is powered by Memjet, it uses Memjet Formula Ink, which is uniquely designed to optimize both print quality and the integrity of the Memjet printhead.The QA chips ensure that only Lomond ink tanks and printheads work in an Evojet Office system and not the aftermarket consumables of other global partners.
Lomond is working with our partners to embrace the refill of Evojet cartridges with Real Memjet ink, thus providing lower running costs to our customers and a higher quality more environmentally friendly printing experience. We think that customers and channel partners have
been waiting for a legitimate, high quality way to lower consumables costs and that this an idea whose time has come.

Lomond has manufacturing and paper converting facilities and is distributed in over xxx outlets. We are working very closely with our Pan European partners to deliver great products and experiences around the Evojet Office product.
6. This is only a single function printer? What about MFP's?

7. How will refill be offered to customers?
Memjet’s office printing technologies feature a “green” design to support ink refill programs that encourage ink cartridge re-use and keep plastics out of landfills, while saving end-users money. Memjet is working with Lomond to implement an ink refill program for its customers utilizing Lomond’s distribution channels and expertise in the marketplace.
8. Why doesn't Memjet introduce its own printers?
Memjet's focus is to create compelling new components and core technologies. By partnering with OEM brands we are able to stay focused on producing invaluable core components.
