The Inner Workings of Your Copier or Photocopiers in Ireland
Just another piece of equipment they may be, but photocopiers are complex machinery.
Many give out when a photocopier has an issue, but just think of how many pages that copier has copied, how many times a day it is used, how many sheets of paper goes through its system. Photocopier are hard-working machines and they are designed with extreme precision. That is why it is important that you understand how photocopiers work.
In the average photocopier there are 12 main components:
- The Controller Circuitry
- The Photo Receptor Drum – this is the heart of your photocopier. This is made out of a semiconductor and uses atoms and light to ensure that your printing is perfect.
- The Charging Roller
- The Laser Beam
- A Rotating Mirror
- The Developer Roller – this is also an important part of your machine.
- The Toner Hopper
- The Belt
- The Paper Tray – the most common reason as to why people think that their copier is not working is that their copier’s paper tray is probably just not loaded correctly.
- The Charging Wire
- The Cleaning Blade – this is what stops ink from getting everywhere.
- The Fuser
With 12 key components and a vast amount more, it is evident that your photocopier is extremely complex. For photocopying to ensue, all of these parts must be in correct working order and with a delicate equilibrium between the components it is important that you handle your photocopier with care.
