What is the 1st step of the laser printing process?
Cleaning - photoconductive drum is cleaned
What is the 2nd step of the laser printing process?
Conditioning - primary Corona/charge Corona (wire) charges the uniformly condition drum negative.
What is the 3rd step of the laser printing process?
Writing - the drum is exposed as it rotates, the laser discharges a lower charge to sections that the toner should be applied to
What is the 4th step of the laser printing process?
Developing - image is developed in the drum through the transfer of negatively charged toner particles onto the section of the drum that has been exposed to the laser
What is the 5th step of the laser printing process?
Transferring toner - a positive charge is created on the paper to pull the negative toner particles from the drum
What is the 6th step of the laser printing process?
Fusing - applying pressure and heat to make the image permanent
