Abstract

A document compilation and finishing feature for use in electrophotographic copy machines is disclosed. As shown in the figure, original documents 1 are cleared from a recirculating document handler 2 following the last imaging and printing cycle. The cleared originals proceed via a common paper path that is shared with a copy handling module 3 to a compiler-finisher area 4. The cleared originals may be optionally stapled and placed atop the stack of finished copies. The compilation feature offers added convenience and ease of use to the user.
