Abstract

Typically a speaker using a Xerox @ Conference Copier or the like must at some point turn his or her back to people in the audience in order to erase the marking surface of the copier. This action of erasing distracts audience attention and loses eye contact of the speaker with his or her audience. Also when erasing takes an undue length of time the speaker may loose audience interest.

ERASE MECHANISM FOR XEROX CONFERENCE COPIER (Cont'd)

Typically a speaker using a Xerox @ Conference Copier or the like must at some point turn his or her back to people in the audience in order to erase the marking surface of the copier. This action of erasing distracts audience attention and loses eye contact of the speaker with his or her audience. Also when erasing takes an undue length of time the speaker may loose audience interest.

Disclosed is a low cost device that erases markings automatically from the surface of a Xerox @ Conference Copier screen. Erase bar 2 shown in the Figure is attached to one end of the conference copier frame 3 with pressure hinges 4,5 and 6. After copying the screen, the erase bar 2 is engaged by the pressure hinges against the surface of copier screen 7. When erasing, the pressure hinges automatically apply sufficient pressure to the erase bar as the copier screen surface moves under it. The side of erase bar 2 in contact with screen 7 has attached thereto a medium density organic erase material that is held in place by clamps or double-sided tape.
