Konica Minolta Printer has a Separate Drum Unit

Both drum units and toner cartridges are essential for producing a print.A drum unit can be incorporated with the toner cartridge or sold separately as a single unit, depending on the consumable requirements of your printer. For example, Konica Minolta printer has separate toner cartridges and drum units.

Let’s begin with “toner cartridge” and “drum unit” to learn more about it.

Toner Cartridge

A toner cartridge has two components, one is the toner hopper and the other is the waste bin. The toner cartridge contains powder (toner) used for creating letters and images. When the printer works, the toner cartridge releases toner particles onto the developer roller. Then, the developer roller transfers the toner onto the drum unit. Finally, the drum unit in turn transfers the toner onto the paper to create the desired text or image.

  • For example: TN711 is a toner cartridge.

The difference between a drum unit and toner cartridge

The toner cartridge is the container that holds the toner powder. The drum unit is an electrically charged cylinder that fuses that toner powder onto paper to create text and images.

Using a seperate toner cartridges and drum units, the drum unit is not built into the toner. Therefore, the drum unit must be replacd. Separate drum units have a longer lifespan than a toner cartridge, and it typically should be replaced after the use of 3-4 toners. Generally, when you start to see black spots or lines across the page, your drum is on it’s last legs.
