Abstract

The print quality of an ink jet transparency is superior to one produced by conventional xerography. High quality transparencies are dEicult to produce in a marking engine having a fuser that is designed to fuse opaque copies. Hence, this proposal addresses the integration of an ink jet printer to the post fuser of an existing xerographic engine. The ink jet printer is reserved solely for making transparencies. The total architecture includes a separate marking engine based on ink jet technology with a transparency feed tray physically attached to the end of the xerographic engine. The ink jet printer may share software and electronic subsystem (ESS)

The total architecture includes a separate marking engine based on ink jet technology with a transparency feed tray physically attached to the end of the xerographic engine. The ink jet printer may share software and electronic subsystem (ESS) functions with those of the xerographic engine. Productivity of the ink jet printer would be approximately 10 copies per minute.
