Abstract

The Figure illustrates a modification to an automatic copier platen to enhance copying capability of pages from books and periodicals as may be present in a Library. In particular, it is directed to enhancing the book copying capability in an automatic reproducing machine which has a stationary platen and a scanning optical system. A typical automatic reproducing machine would include a cylindrical rotatable imaging drum with a photoconductive surface 10 which rotates through a series of processing stations including charging station 12, exposure station 14, development station 16 to create a toner image on the photoconductive surface. Thereafter, copy sheets are fed from any one of supply sources 30,32 and 34 into contact with the toner image on the photoconductive drum so that the toner image may be transferred to the copy sheet by transfer corotron 18, the copy sheet detacked from the drum by detack corotron 20 with the copy sheet now bearing the toner image being transported by belt transport 22 to fuser roll pair 24, to fuse the toner image thereon after which the copy sheet is transported to exit rolls 26 into the
