Abstract:

A proprietary device, to be known as the 914 Office Copier, was developed. A modified design of this unit provided the print-out portion of the contract machine. Minicard-handling techniques developed by the Eastman Kodak Company were adapted and tailored to the needs of the developmental machine. An optical system was conceived and constructed, using bench-test technique with mock-ups. Various light sources were tested in the viewing-projection system and a compromise selection was made on the basis of stability, light intensity, and generated heat. A system of scan exposure of the Minicard was developed, involving synchronized scanning of a Minicard with enlargement exposure on a revolving xerographic drum. The optical system was arranged to provide visual inspection by the operator of the 12 documents on the Minicard, enlarged 60 times on a translucent viewing screen. Rapid selection of documents was provided by a single 12-position switch and print-out of any slected document by a push-button switch. Only one control was made manual and it was equipped with positive positioning detents to avoid a requirement for a high degree of operator skill or dexterity. Author
