Expert supplier for toner and label tape

Everyone who owns a laser printer is familiar with replacing a toner cartridge. Not everyone is as familiar with drum units. So before we go any further, let’s define them both:
What’s the difference between a drum unit and toner cartridge?
The toner cartridge is the container that holds the toner powder. The unit is an electrically charged cylinder that fuses that toner powder onto paper to create text and images.
Both of these components are essential for producing a print. Depending on what printer you own, you might be used to replacing your drum unit occasionally, or you may have never had to replace a drum unit.  So, why the inconsistency?  It is all contingent on the design of your printer. A drum can be incorporated with the toner cartridge or sold separately as a single unit, depending on the consumable requirements of your printer.  Laser printers and their consumables vary across printer models. Some printers only need you to replace the toner cartridge, and others require that you regularly replace both the toner cartridge and the drum.  Consult your printer’s user manual to determine what consumables are appropriate for your machine.
