There are many things that we use on a daily basis that need maintenance; vehicles, air conditioners, bicycles among other things but have you thought about your printer lately? Bradshaw offers a wide variety of maintenance kits for HP printers but you may be wondering what parts actually come standard in a Bradshaw maintenance kit. Well, we have the answer!
Maintenance kits typically contain a variation of five parts: the fuser assembly, transfer roller, pickup rollers, feed rollers and separation pads. The specific quantities of these items vary by printer model, but in general, these are the items that you will find in a maintenance kit. HP printers have maintenance cycles built into them and your printer will do a great job of letting you know when it’s time for maintenance. Here’s some more details about the parts in a maintenance kit.
Fuser Assembly – This is the most crucial part to a network printer’s functionality as it is the device that uses pressure and heat to fuse the toner to the paper. This part does have a limited life based on the number of pages printed.
Transfer Roller – This roller is electrically charged and has the texture of a sponge. The roller places the toner on the page after a piece of paper passes through the drum.
Pickup Rollers – Responsible for picking up and feeding the paper into the printing compartment of the printer.
Feed Rollers – These rollers do exactly what their description says – they feed the paper through the printer, ensuring your printed document ends up in the paper tray!
Separation Pads – These pads play an important role by separating the top sheet of paper being fed into the printer from the rest of the paper. Worn out pads can equal paper jams.
Bradshaw maintenance kits are configured to exact OEM specifications, so when you get your kit from Bradshaw, you’ll be certain you’re getting exactly what the manufacturer says your printer needs to keep it running like it should for many years to come.
