Abstract

Disclosed is a gravity feed dispenser for use on turning lathes used to manufacture the drum substrate of a photoconductive member used in electrophotographic-printing tI1iIc hines. The dispenser ergonomically improves work place conditions by eliminating lifting and rotating process steps encountered by an operator when normally placing vcrtically staged substrates on the lathe.

IXsclosed is a gravity feed dispenser for use on turning lathes used to manufacture the drum substrate of a photoconductive member used in electrophotographic-printing

tI1iIc hines. The dispenser ergonomically improves work place conditions by eliminating lifting and rotating process steps encountered by an operator when normally placing vcrtically staged substrates on the lathe.

Substrates ready for machining are fed to an entrance opening in the dispenser and dlowed to roll down to a staging area, at the dispenser's exit. An operator removes a tiiachined substrate from the lathe for placement at a finishing station. Thereafter, the olxrator takes a horizontally staged substrate waiting for lathing, at the staging area, and
places it in the lathe. The process is repeated for each substrate fed from the dispenser.
