magnetographicA non-impact printer technology that prints up to 90 ppm. A magnetic image is created by a set of recording heads across a magnetic drum. A toner is applied to the drum to develop the image, which is transferred to paper by light pressure and an electrostatic field. The toner is then fused by heat. The print quality is not as good as a laser printer, but the machines require less maintenance.
