Xerox Disclosure Journal


This disclosure relates to a compact xerographic copier 10 as illustrated in the figure. The copier is characterized by a biased charging roll 12 disposed at a multifunction station 15 which also comprises fiber optics exposure structure 13 on the opposite side of a copy sheet from the biased charging roll 12 and adapted to project light from an original 14 to be copied. At the station 15, which also comprises a photoreceptor 16, transfer of electrostatic charges occurs to thereby form a latent electrostatic image on the copy sheet which is subsequently rendered visible through development with a single component developer powder applied by a biased development roll 18. The powder image is rendered permanent by a cold pressure fuser 20.
