There are many different types of printers out there on the market, all with a different method to printing. Most people can guess how an inkjet printer prints due to the name it’s given, but do you know how a laser printer prints? How does a laser beam print text and images on a sheet of paper? It’s actually quiet interesting (at least I think so) and is based off some simple scientific principles – definitely worth taking a look.

Find out how a laser printer works and the history of a laser printer. The first laser printer can be credited to IBM. IBM built the first commercial implementation of a laser printer with the IBM model 3800 in 1975.
