Types of Printers in Kenya

If you’re looking to buy a printer in Nairobi Kenya Take a look at the guide below to learn about the different types of printers on the Kenyan market, from laser printers to inkjet and everything in between.
Laserjet Printers in Kenya

The first laser printer was developed by Xerox in the 1960s when the idea of using a laser to draw images onto a copier drum was first considered. Laser printers are still widely used in large offices as they are traditionally more efficient than inkjet printers.
A laser printer basically works by first placing an electric charge on a rotating drum. Then a laser discharges a lower electrical charge on the drum. The laser draws the image that is going to be printed on the drum itself. Then the drum is coated with a fine black powder known as toner. As the drum is being coated, the toner only clings to the areas where the laser has drawn. Then as the paper goes through the printer, the toner is placed on the paper; and the result is a high-quality print. They include HP Laserjet M477dn, HP M283fdw, Kyocera M6235cdn, Canon C3520i, hp m130a printer, HP M107a, Hp M183fw, all available at the best price in Nairobi.

Thermal Printers in Kenya

Thermal printers print by using heat. They use a special print paper known as a thermal paper, and on this thermal paper is a wax-based ink. When heat is applied to this ink, it turns black. So, in a thermal printer, the only thing the print head does is to apply ink to the areas where ink should be printed. Then when the ink is cooled, it becomes permanent. Due to this technology, thermal printers are very quiet. Thermal printers are mostly used for printing labels and barcodes. They include Epos TEP300, Epson TMU-II20 all available at Compland Shop in Kenya

Dot matrix Printers in Kenya

The dot-matrix printer uses a pinhead that moves across the paper and as it moves, the pins on the print head strike against a cloth ink ribbon that comes in direct contact with the paper, producing each character in the form of dots. Despite being an out-dated technology, dot-matrix printers can print multi-copy documents, such as carbon copies. They are also very durable and can withstand heavy usage over an extended period.
Dot matrix printers include Epson LQ-690, Epson LX350, Epson LQ-2190, available at Compland at the best price in Nairobi.
