Abstract

Address labels on a lister machine may be made by typing the address on a card in a specified area. The cards bearing the typed addresses are then fed through the machine where the typed address is duplicated on a label strip by xerographic processing.

Address labels on a lister machine may be made by typing the address on a card in a specified area. The cards bearing the typed addresses are then fed through the machine where the typed address is duplicated on a label strip by xerographic processing.

It is proposed that an LCD array be used instead of address cards to generate address labels. Referring to the drawing, an LCD 5 having dark letters with reflective backing and preferably consisting of four or five rows of LCDs with 35 characters in each row, is provided. An optical assembly 6 serves to pass the image rays emitted by LCD 5 onto the photoreceptor drum 7 of a conventional xerographic system. Optical assembly 6 has a movable object mirror 8 for scanning LCD 5, a lens 9 for focusing the image onto drum 7, and an image mirror 10. Object mirror 8 is driven by suitable means (not shown) so that the scanning speed of mirror 8 is synchronized with the speed of photoreceptor drum 7.
