Inkjet vs Laser Printers
When purchasing a new printer, a common confusion among buyers is the difference between the two common printer types: the Inkjet and the laser printer. This video explains some of the key differences between these two. Watch to the end for a quick and comprehensive guide on choosing the printer that suits your printing needs.
Since blueprints serve as references to construction teams, they have to be reproduced with the use of blueprint machines. Like other equipment, these machines are made up of components and supplies that have to be replaced occasionally. These printer supplies enable blueprint machines to operate optimally and yield several clear copies in a relatively short time.
Blueprints are reproduced through a process that involves light. This light comes from printer lamps, which are turned on by starters. As the light goes through the original drawings, the details from these drawings are transferred to the light-sensitized blank sheets of paper with the help of cylinders. These cylinders are rotated by belts that are attached to the machine’s motor, which are made up of sprockets, brushes, clutches, switches, fuses, fans, and resistors. The cylinders also have printer blades that wipe off the chemical buildup.
After the blueprint copy goes through this process, users have to develop it in the machine’s screen filled with ammonia. Then, a carrier strip is attached at the top of the copy so that it is ready for filing.
