Abstract

The high volume duplicating market, populated by centralized reproduction departments, commercial printers and quick printers, is required to do many complex duplicating jobs Many of these jobs require a wide latitude of machine set-ups to produce acceptable copy quality, particularly set-ups affecting copy density, exposure, and contrast. It as proposed here that special mode controls for document type, exposure, photo contrast, and density be provided to enable the operator to vary the output copy exposure, contrast, and density interactively during the printer "ready" and "print" operating modes. As a result, a high degree of automation 1s achieved bnnging needed productivity improvements
