Abstract

Light lens copiers with CCD arrays (currently used for document positioning, size sensing, and edit mark detection) and digital copiers are capable of detecting and locating certain marks on originals. This capability can be utilized to allow off-line programming of jobs and repeat job program storage with no capital cost of additional machine memory and/or card readers.

PERFORATED JOB TICKET SYSTEM

Light lens copiers with CCD arrays (currently used for document positioning, size sensing, and edit mark detection) and digital copiers are capable of detecting and locating certain marks on originals. This capability can be utilized to allow off-line programming of jobs and repeat job program storage with no capital cost of additional machine memory and/or card readers.

Proposed is a concept to produce programming sheets, or job tickets, from thicker paper and to indicate each discrete programming feature selection by a pop-out area of a required size. The pop-out areas would be partially perforated to facilitate easy use. The ticket must be produced in a card color which contrasts with the document handler belt or platen to allow for detection by the CCD array.

Perforated job tickets have the following advantages. 1) If produced in braille, both the original ticket and the programmed features can be interpreted by the totally blind. 2) Mark size and location will always be accurate, so consistent performance is guaranteed. 3) The ticket cannot be copied, thereby making it a consumable item, thus generating additional revenue.
