My office is buying photocopy machine and we are stuck between the printing technology which is making it difficult to choose one.

canon imagerunner 2520 has Laser Dry Electrostatic Transfer System

Toshiba Studio 2309A has Indirect Electrostatic photographic

Taskalfa 2200 has laser mono component

we are having a very hard time figuring out the difference in these technologies. I have search through the web but didn't find any expalnations. `

  • I have to choose between these three because of our process, and the only confusion is with the printing technology.

1 Answer 1


They are all various ways of referring to the same process, which a Xerox engineer invented (hence the name of their company): Xerography.

HowStuffWorks has a decent overview of the process here.

So, to directly answer your question, they all use the same printing technology.
