Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
Fuser assembly has a piece of fuser roller over the top side for generating heat, and a piece lower pressure roller to assist the upper roller to perform the final printing process which is to fuse and bond the toner onto the fiber of paper, that is to say, to fix the texts and graphics on the paper.
In addition to the pair of rollers mentioned above, fuser assembly also has other parts in it to complete the fusing process, such as fuser film sleeve, heating element, fuser thermistor and driving gears, so you sometimes only need to purchase the single part and replace it to fix the problem.
