Paper Abstract

There are two general types of systems for performing the imaging function in a copying machine. The first is the scanning type in which successive portions of the original are sequentially imaged on the continuously moving photoreceptor. These systems can usually be fitted into a comparatively small space, but result in a relatively high process velocity, thus imposing velocity constraints on other machine functions. The second is the full-frame type in which a complete image of the original is formed, at one time, on the (flat) photo-receptor. These systems permit, for a given copy rate, use of minimum process velocity, but require comparatively more space, resulting in an undesirable increase in size. Both types have additional interactions affecting machine performance parameters that should be considered at the earliest stages of architecture development. The various interactions will be discussed and the effects of these interactions on selected, existing copying machines described.
