Copy machines have a similar type of cartridge and both hold a special dry, powdery substance called toner. The toner is electrically charged to adhere to a drum unit, plate or paper (depending on the printer model) that has been also electrically charged with the opposite polarity. These type of cartridges hold large quantity of powder allowing to print thousands of pages with one cartridge.
