About Printers

A printer is a device that takes data from a computer and produces output form of text or image on a paper.In 1938, Chester Carlson invented a dry printing process called Xerox it was also called electrophotography.

Types and Features

There are two types of printers: Impact Printers and Non Impact Printers

Impact Printers-are printers that needs to strike or make contact with the paper and Non Impact do not use striking device to product characters on the paper.These are some examples of Impact Printers: Dot Matrix, Daisy-Wheel, Line Printers, Drum Printers, Chain Printers and Band Printers.

What you need to know about the Impact Printers

Dot Matrix-these are inexpensive and typically can print at speed at 100-600 characters per second. They produce a buzzing noise, unless the printer has a sound deadening case, it is not suitable for quite areas or space.Now Daisy Wheel printers has a speed of 22-55 characters per second, that is really slow in printing. Next is the Line printer, ts uses a special mechanism that can print a whole lien at once which ranges 1,200-6,000 lines per minute and compared to the Drum printer its typical speed ranges at 300 to 2000 lines per minute.

Now with Chain printers, it uses a chain of print characters wrapped around two pulleys, the speed ranges from 400-2500 characters per minute and lastly the band printer it operates like the chain except it uses a band instead of chain, font styles can easily be changed by replacing a band or chain.

Non-Impact Printers are: Inkjet printers, Laser printers

InkJet printers works like a dot matrix printers similar by the form images or characters with little dots, however the dots are formed by droplets of ink.

Laser printers works like a photocopier, it also produces image son paper by direct laser beam at a mirror which bounces onto the drum. Many of us uses laser printer that can print eight pages per minute but faster and prints approximately 21,000 lines per minute.

Benefits of Impact Printers and Non-Impact Printers

Impact printers uses pressure to generate an image and since they print one line at a time instead of one page at a time, it is ideal for long form of paper design.

Non-Impact printers, on the other hand, have a much higher resolutions since it uses drops of inks instead of metal pins. It is also much quieter making it possible to be used out in open spaces.

IBM Printer- This was the first high speed, laser printer, and was also the first printer combined with laser technology and electrophotography. Hewlett-Packard- released teh LaserJet 4 in 1992. Then on 1976 the inkjet printer was invented.

Advantages and Disadvantages of using Laser Printers

The main advantages of a laser printer is that it is more efficient and can print out hiquality text or graphics compared to other printers. It does not have distracting sounds and also they are capable of producing colorful prints.

Disadvantages of using a laser printer is simply that its really expensive compared to other printers. Also, the repair and service charge are also expensive so its really hard to maintain one of these printers.
