3 Advantages Of Laser Printers

Advantages of a laser printer

Unless you happen to work in a completely paper free office, which is unlikely but a possibility, then you will have used your office printer at some point. If you work in an office that frequently prints then it is even more likely that your office has a laser printer.

These are the workhorses of printers, making them the perfect items for office use. But some workplaces use inkjet printers instead, so what exactly are the advantages to using a laser printer in the office?

We’ve put together a list of 3 advantages of laser printers, showcasing why they are often great investments in the office.

1)    Speed

A major advantage to a laser printer is that they offer excellent speed when printing out. Often your work is already printed by the time you even reach the printer. This means that it saves you time as you do not have to be stood around waiting for minutes for your printer to finish.

It also suits the busy atmosphere of an office more than an inkjet printer. If there are 50 people using one laser printer then the faster it can print the less likely queues are going to be.

2)    Quality

It is highly likely that in the workplace the most commonly printed items will be invoices, emails, letters, spreadsheets and so forth.  As such, it may be understandable that people may not realise that laser printing produces some of the highest quality printing available.

Unlike the ink cartridges used in inkjet printers, laser printers use toner instead. Toner is a fine powder that is directly fused onto the paper with the heated rollers, more commonly known as a fuser unit. This also means that you can start handling them immediately without worrying about any smudging that is common with ink printing!

3)    Reliability

A huge advantage to a laser printer is that they offer you fantastic reliability. As we said earlier, they are truly the workhorses of the workplace which in turn means they are built to last. The page yield of a toner cartridge can vary from only around 1,500 pages to up to 60,000 pages and more depending on the printer you have.

As such, it should be expected that your printer can handle this amount of printing. This can mean that if you buy a laser printer today, there is a chance that it will still be around in 10 years time working just as hard.

This is also helped by the fact that you are able to separately buy the pieces you need to fix your printer if it ever does stop working. Separate fuser units, maintenance kits and more are often available to purchase and simply require you to replace the old piece with the new to have your printer working like new again.
