Abstract

This disclosure relates to electronic copying/printing systems and more particularly to an electronic multi-color copying/printing system that employs non-interactive development. In typical xerographic type color copiers, processing of the color copies is done in sequence. For example, in one well known commercial copier, a blue color separation image is first made, developed with yellow toner, and transferred to a copy sheet which is supported on a rotating drum synchronized to the copying process. Then, a second green color separation image is made, developed with magenta toner, and transferred to the copy sheet in superimposed registered relationship with the first color separation image. Lastly, a third red color separation image is made, developed with cyan toner, and transferred to the copy sheet in superimposed registered relationship with the previously transferred blue and green color separation images. The resulting combination of color separation images is thereafter fused to provide a permanent color copy.
