History on Printers

The first modern printer was manufactured in 1953 by Remington-Rand to use on the Univac (Universal Automatic Computer) computers.

Chester Carlson invented, yet a different type of printer; a dry printing technology, in 1938. The technology at the time was called Xerox. Our laser printers were invented based on this technology.

In the early ‘70s, the first laser printer was developed at Xerox Palo Research Center. IBM also came out with a laser printer(s) in the mid ‘70s. Inkjet printers were also invented in the ‘70s but it wasn’t until the late 80’s that it became popular for home consumers.

It took until 1992 for the first 600dpi by 600dpi resolution laser printer to be released by Hewlett Packard, the famous LaserJet 4 series.
