What is a laser printer
- 10 Mar, 2021
How does a laser printer work?
When we want to print something, we send a signal from the computer to the printer. The print data is transferred to the printer, which first charges the drum via a charging roller or charging electrodes. The drum unit can be positively or negatively charged - it depends on the printer manufacturer.
The laser takes part in the next stage. Our printout is transferred to an electrically charged drum unit. The laser discharges the drum in places compatible with the desired print. The toner is attracted to the appropriate place where, according to the data sent, it is to be printed. At this stage, the only thing left to do is fix the image - with high temperature and roller pressure.
Advantages of laser printers:
- high quality of prints,
- printing speed,
- the ability to purchase good quality toner-replacements,
- huge toner efficiency,
- durability of prints,
- low operating costs.
Who is the laser printer for?
A laser printer is definitely the best choice in the office, at work and in other places where a lot of printing is done and where printing time matters. Laser printers are very fast, they can print up to 20 sheets in one minute. However, you have to take into account that a laser printer is best for printing documents, if you want to print images, an inkjet printer will be much better.
Laser printers are also much more expensive when it comes to the purchase of the device itself, as well as the necessary toners and drums.
