The rate at which copies can be produced depends on the rescan time for a given process speed. Efforts made to minimize this time in the past have been limited by the inertia of scan element. One successful low inertia device has been the use of a rotational mirror with a curved platen surface. The disadvantage of this system is the requirement for the curved platen surface. Various schemes proposed in the past have suffered from defects of focus caused by tilted image planes or incorrect conjugate.
