Product Information

Brother DR3100 Drum Unit

What is a printer drum?

The DR3100 drum is an integral part of your Brother printer. Think of the drum as a large rolling pin that transfers the toner from the toner cartridge on to the paper.

In more technical terms a laser beam shines on the drum in the shape of the image to be printed, creating an electrostatic charge. The charged area of the printer drum is then coated with toner powder. The paper is then rolled over the drum and the toner passes to the paper. Once the toner is on the paper it is heated and bonded to the paper by the fuser unit.

If you have a colour laser printer, you will have four drums, one for each colour: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and black.

The drum shouldn’t be confused with the toner cartridge itself. You can check how many pages you have printed and what percentage of the drum life and toner life remains, by printing a status page from your printer.
