The RICOH Aficio 550 PS is a laser printer made by Ricoh Co Ltd. This laser printer is a regular kind of computer printer that quickly produces high quality text and graphics on ordinary paper. Similar with photocopiers and multifunction printers, laser printers utilize a xerographic printing method. They are different from analog photocopiers in that the picture or the image is produced by the direct scanning of a laser beam athwart the photoreceptor of the printer. The RICOH Aficio 550 PS printer's laser beam presents a picture of the page to be printed onto an electrically charged rotating drum which is surrounded with selenium. Photoconductivity eliminates charge from the areas which are exposed to the light. Dry ink particles or better known as the toner are then electro-statically held by the drum's charged portions. The drum then prints the picture onto the paper by straight contact and heat, which blends the ink to the paper.
