Advantages of using a monochrome laser printer

Laser printers are modern printers with non-impact technology. In other words, there will be no buttons touching or hitting the paper. It basically works with the following basic mechanism:


– A laser beam, with an electrical charge, pulls the document to be printed towards a selenium-coated drum.


– The drum will be rolled with toner. The toner is a kind of dry powder ink that adheres to the charged image.


– The toner is then transferred to a piece of paper to be fused with it. The union of toner and paper is facilitated by pressure and heat.


The history of laser printers dates back to the 80s with the initial aim of replacing impact dot matrix printers. At that time laser printers were connected to a single PC but as technology evolved, today laser printers are usually connected to a local area network to serve a wider work operation.


Laser printers are multifunctional printers with scanning, printing, photocopying, and faxing capabilities. One of the variants of laser printers is the so-called monochrome laser printer commonly abbreviated as mono laser printer. But what is it?

What is the monochrome laser printer?


As its name suggests, a monochrome laser printer can only print in black, a feature that limits its use. However, that is its only major limitation since, in general, it can be a good option for those companies that work with documents and black prints.


Monochrome laser printers should be considered the answer to specific needs in a company. In the same way that a laptop meets the specific needs of a professional who requires a high degree of mobility, a printer of this type can cover precise aspects and offer an optimal experience, as long as it is integrated into the appropriate printing environment. It may be a good idea to choose a monochrome laser printer in these two scenarios:


– Printing environments where color is not used, in those companies that only work with documents or with a simple image that does not require the use of color, such as law offices, consultancies, certain types of offices and shops, and copy shops.


– Hybrid printing environments, in large companies with departments and work groups that need to print in color, but some may work more with black prints. In these cases, monochrome laser printers would be an excellent option if we integrate them as a complementary solution, that is, supporting other color printers.


Monochrome printers generally have a more affordable retail price compared to equivalent color models, meaning they represent a smaller investment and can pay for themselves in less time. We must also take into account that this type of printer is prepared to carry out large work cycles in an optimal way, and does not force us to give up any advanced functions (there are multifunction solutions with WiFi, NFC, and integrated security) offering a high quality of printing, high work speed and low cost per page.
