Fax Machine & Cartridges

The fax machines was most popular in the 1990’s and thousands were sold to businesses and individuals all over the UK, however they are still used by many businesses as a main form of communication.  They were first introduced using thermal rolls (fax rolls) and so they didn’t use ink or toner cartridges.

Fax Machine – Inkjet

The inkjet fax machines was then introduced and were known as plain paper fax machines as they used A4 white paper instead of thermal rolls.  One of the first inkjet machines was the Panasonic UF-300 which would hold 100 sheets of A4 white paper and used a small inkjet cartridge which was basically an HP ink cartridge.

Fax Machine – Laser

Soon after this laser plain paper fax machine was introduced and receiving and printing faxes became faster and less expensive.  Canon were one of the leaders in plain paper laser faxes with such machines as the L800.
