Abstract

Copier/stapler machines provide for the copying of a set of document sheets, that compiling into sets of copy sheets and stapling along an edge. However, this leaves the user with an unstapled set of document sheets. The following descriDtion is directed to the concept of modifying copier/stapler machines to provide access to the stapler device for the set of document sheets after the document has been copied.

In Figure 1, a conventional 8200 Duplicator marketed by Xerox Corporation, is illustrated as being modified with an access slot 2 for permitting an operator to insert a set of document sheets into the cover 3 for the stapler device 4.
