Types of Fax Machines

Fax machines are devices that copy data that is wired.  It also acts as a duplicator that is used to copy the incoming data onto paper.  Fax machines are very important in this modern and fast paced life where everything is depended upon time.  This saves time, as it is an electronic device and transmits data at a very fast speed.

There are a variety of fax machines available in the market; depending upon the need and necessity of the user, which can be purchased.  In the olden days thermal fax machines were used, which used thermal papers.  This was not a very good method followed, as they were hard to read and faded away quite soon.  That was in the past!  Nowadays, plain paper is used to print the fax data.  The most common types of fax machines used are laser and inkjet fax machines.

Inkjet fax machines produce good quality prints of faxes, though the speed is slower when compared to the laser type.  They also produce prints at a much lower cost, as the consumables are not as costly as a laser printer;  but if the number of faxes received per day is more than 30, then the slow speed could be annoying, and so it is not advised in places where more faxes are expected to come in.  As they tend to get mechanical problems in the long run, they are not advised in heavy faxing and fax receiving areas.

Laser printers are fit for an office environment and places where a high flow of incoming and outgoing faxes are expected.  These are heavy duty machines and do a good job typing out the matter neatly and clearly.  They are also very fast and so there is no need to wait in queue to send or receive a fax!  The Laser fax machines use a light emitting diode or an LED, which is very reliable and is definitely long lasting.  They are however, expensive when compared to the inkjet and thermal, but looking at the performance, they are definitely worth the cost.  The quality of the images and letters produced is also high.

Thermal transfer fax machine is the third type that uses heat to transmit the ink from a ribbon in the machine, onto the plain paper.  They are reliable and also inexpensive, but the quality is not as good as the others.  Also the whole operation is a noisy affair.  This is mostly used in home-office set ups than in big business and office set ups.

The Fax machine is quite a useful device and can be expensive as well.  It is therefore necessary to take care of it well, always.  Also, before buying the machine, it is necessary to thoroughly analysis  what is the need and type of fax machine to be bought, in order to buy the effective and correct performance machine.
