Abstract

In a reprographic system, or any similar piece of office equipment, it may be desirable to attach a peripheral device to the exterior of the system. Generally, systems incorporate mounting holes for peripherals which are known at the time of the system design. However, due to the rapidly changing needs of office equipment users, it is virtually impossible to anticipate all the peripherals that may eventually be added to the systems. Consequently, the addition of peripherals to the reprographic system may require the retooling of external covers to accommodate the peripheral device. In many situations, retooling after production has begun may be prohibitively expensive.
