Abstract

In servicing or resupplying an electrographic system, it is sometimes difficult to remove empty supply containers and replace them with new containers. For example, in a finishedstapler attached to a reprographic system, it is frequently necessary to replenish the stitcher or stapler wire. Accordingly, the present invention is directed to means for improving the accessibility of such supply cartridges or spools.

SLIDEABLE STAPLE WIRE SPOOL(Cont'd)

In servicing or resupplying an electrographic system, it is sometimes difficult to remove empty supply containers and replace them with new containers. For example, in a finishedstapler attached to a reprographic system, it is frequently necessary to replenish the stitcher or stapler wire. Accordingly, the present invention is directed to means for improving the accessibility of such supply cartridges or spools.

Referring to the figure, where an embodiment of the slideable access means is illustrated, wire spool 12 is slideably affixed to frame member 14 by linear slide 16. Shown in the resupply or extended position, spool 12 would be pushed in the direction of arrow 20, to an interior position of the machine, as shown by reference numeral 22, to resume normal operation of the machine,. Hence, replacement of the spent spool is facilitated by having the spool in a position easily accessible to an operator, as illustrated.
