Abstract

A unitary blow molded top or platen cover for electrophotographic printing and copying machines having load bearing extrusions molded into place for construction of cabinet fixtures is disclosed. As shown in Figure 1, the blow molded top or platen cover 1 contains load bearing extrusions bonded or molded into place. The top of platen cover is mounted on counter balances. As shown in Figure 2A, a slot 3 is milled into the extrusion which holds the cover in place. Figure 2B shows how the bonding material 4 flows around the molded in extrusion 2 which in turn joins it to cover material 5. The molded in extrusions add strength to the entire top cover assembly as well as to provide a counter balance mount for cover hinges.
