An Imaging Unit is a cartridge containing the OPC (Organic Photo Conductor) Drum that rotates so the toner adheres to it. The OPC Drum holds the toner and transfers it onto the paper to be fused. The printing process would not be possible without the Imaging Unit in a laser printer. After a certain number of sheets (varying depending on the printer), the imaging unit will need to be replaced. The printer will notify you if you reach this point.
