Abstract

This article discloses a more effective method of performing a duplex-simplex operation. Duplex-simplex is an operation which derives simplex copy sheets (one-sided) from duplex original documents (two- sided) method uses, in conjunction with an electrophotographic copier and a collator, an automatic document feeder (ADF) and a semiautomatic document feeder (SADF). The electrophotographic copier, the collator, the ADF and the SADF are not shown or described herein; however, a flow chart is shown which generalizes the processes and decisions required to accomplish the duplex simplex method according to this article.
