LED, or light-emitting diode, is a type of semiconductor element that gives off light.
LEDs are currently used in a wide variety of applications, from large-sized displays and traffic signals to seasonal decorative lighting, car headlights, and interior and exterior lighting. OKI DATA has been the constant frontrunner in LED technology development, based on its long track record in developing world-first LED print heads for printers.
LED printers are characterized by offering high-speed, high image quality printing in a simple structure not possible with laser printers.
Laser printers have a single laser beam as a light source that is divided by mirrors to send light to the image drum, so the internal structure is complex and the actual printer body is often large as well. Compared to this, LED printers send light directly to the image drum, so they can be designed without mirrors and a shorter distance to the image drum, which reduces the size of the printer body. In addition, the inside structure is simple, so maintenance is also simple.
