Abstract

An apparatus for cleaning and polishing microfiche. The apparatus consists of two sets of members through which the microfiche is passed. The members include a set of wiper elements that are used in conjunction with a set of drying rollers, The microfiche is first inserted between the wiper elements, preferably in the form of rollers which contain a cleaning fluid, The cleaning fluid is fed to the rollers from a cleaning fluid supply area located within the appara~- tus. Subsequently, the microfiche is passed through a set of cloth rollers which are chemically treated to both polish and dry the microfiche. Both the wiper elements and drying rollers are designed to be adjustable so as to provide varia'- ble pressures as desired by the operator.
