Drums (OPC)

Toner Drums (OPC)The Drum, also known as Organic Photoconductor (OPC) receives an electrostatic image from the laser or LCD on the surface where the toner is electrically attracted and later transferred to the paper.An OPC will degrade from frictional wear, chemical degradation, light fatigue and electrical fatigue. In general, the wiper blade, PCR and toner contribute most to the wear. Additionally, using rough paper, excessively thick paper and envelopes will also wear the drum more rapidly.It is recommended to replace the toner drums (OPC) for better print quality of the laser printer cartridges.
