Abstract:

This report covers the evaluation and test of a single-color electrostatic printing machine for reproducing 22 12 by 30-inch topographic maps from 70-mm microfilm originals on photoconductive paper utilizing liquid immersion development. This report evaluates the accuracy, resolution, registration, alignment, distortion, halftone and continuous-tone capability, speed, maximum image area, over-printing, sheeting, and other capabilities of the machine and system for use in printing topographic maps. The report concludes that a The electrostatic printing machine is suitable for the reproduction of multicolor topographic maps from 70-mm transparencies. b The electrostatic printing process utilizing liquid immersion development has fully demonstrated the capability of reproducing acceptable multicolor topographic maps for field use. c The machine design of the single-color electrostatic printing system is sound and the machine processing components are satisfactory for use in the multicolor electrostatic printing machine.
