Xerox Disclosure Journal


The present disclosure relates to magnetic xerographic imaging and in particular, relates to a system architecture for providing simplex and/or duplex magnetic imaging and copy generation. The system disclosed in the figure shows apparatus for moving a magnetic tape 1 through supply, imaging, storage, development, transfer and take-up stations. Latent magnetic images are generated on a magnetic tape at imaging stations 2, utilizing techniques known in the magnetic imaging art. Copy sheets are stored in a copy sheet tray 4 and moved into transfer relationship with the magnetic tape at a pair of transfer stations 5, 6 by a copy sheet transport 7. Two storage dump containers 8, 9 allow continuous recording so that while a previous job is being developed and transferred, subsequent jobs can be imaged at the imaging station 2. The tape is subsequently wound on take-up roll 3.
