How laser Printing Works

  1. 1. The drum surface is positively charged while the drum rotates.

  2. 2. laser beam emits light onto the drum surface during rotation. The area exposed to the laser beam forms an electrostatic image to be printed.

  3. 3. Charged toner particles are attracted to the electrostatic image on the drum.
  1. 4. Paper passes the drum where a negative charge is applied to it causing the toner to be drawn away from the drum surface and deposited onto the paper surface.

  2. 5. The image transferred to the paper by static electricity is fused by heat and pressure through the heat roller and pressure roller within the fuser assembly.

  3. 6. The printed document exits the printer.
