There are several types of printing technologies :

  • Inkjet printer
  • Laser printer

  • Inkjet printers uses liquid ink sprayed through nozzles onto the paper, and laser printers use a toner cartridge (filled with fine powder) and a heated fuser for printing.Each technology has its own importance.

    Inkjet Printer : In the inkjet printing technology, the print head has several tiny nozzles. The copy from an inkjet printer needs a little time to dry. Adequate drying time is especially important if the hard copy contains large sections of solid black or dark color.The advantage of using an inkjet printer is that they give an excellent color output.

    All In One

    An ink tank system in printers continuously supplies ink to a comparatively small inkjet print head. It increases the print capacity. Ink in the tank will lasts for a long time and it is refillable. How long the ink will last depends on how heavy the usage of the printer is for the user. The general warranty that companies offer for the Ink Tank system is for a period of one year or in a range of 25000 to 30000 pages.

    A multi-function printer is a type that performs multiple tasks alongwith printing such as scanning, sending fax, photo copy, automatic document feeding etc.

    A scanner's optical resolution is determined by how many pixels it can actually see. In a typical flatbed scanner it uses scanning head with 300 sensors per inch, so it can sample 300 dots per inch (dpi) in one direction.
