Abstract

This article describes a copier system comprising a recirculating automatic document feeder (RADF), an electrophotographic copying engine having a multisheet loop and a finisher. The enunciated elements (such as the RADF, the copying engine, etc.) are controlled by a microcomputer to produce collated sets of copy sheets in the finisher. Operation of the copier system is fully automatic without user intervention. The system generates simplex or duplex copies from simplex originals or simplex or duplex copies from duplex originals. Both the originals and copies are stacked in sequential order.
