Have you ever attempt writing with a beam of light? Is it possible? It sounds impossible, but that’s the exact way how the “laser printer” works when it makes a permanent copy of data from your machine (computer) on the piece of paper.
A huge thanks to the sci-fi and spy movies that tend us to think of lasers as a fantastic source of powerful light beams that can blast the enemy’s spaceships into the smithereens or can slice through the chunks of metal.
But wait! Tiny lasers are useful too in a much more positive way such as laser printers!
Laser printers are alike to photocopy machines. Laser machines follow up the main idea of the photocopier machines.
What’s The Reason Behind it?
Because the laser printer was first built as a modified form of photocopier machines.
How Does a Laser Printer Work?
When you print some information from your computer, it sends a large stream of electronic data to your laser printer. The electronic circuit, which is the main component of the laser printer then figures out that what this electronic stream means and should look like!
It then makes a laser beam scan back and forth across the drum inside the drum, building up the pattern of the static electricity.
Finally, as in the photocopier machine, a fuse unit bonds the toner to the paper.
Do You Know?
• Millions of bytes (Characters) of the data stream into the printer from your computer machine.
• A brilliant electronic circuit in the printer figures out how to print the data given to it, so it looks correct on the page. Laser printer technology is already on its way with a full boom! The first laser printer was invented in the 1960s by Gray Starkweather. Impresora laser printers are vastly used all across the world and are very helpful for everyone indeed.
