How it Works

History Of Copiers

COPY PRINT SCAN & EMAIL

All from the one device

Copy Process

1.  Charging:  Places a negative charge on the

surface of the photoconductive drum.

 

2.  Original Exposure:  Converts images on the

original into optical signals.

 

3.  Data Reading:  The optical image signals

are read into the CCD and converted into

electrical signals.

 

4.  Data Writing:  The electrical image signals are changed into light signals and projected onto

the surface of the photoconductive drum via a

LED array or a laser unit.

 

5.  Development:  Negatively charged toner is

electrostatically attracted to the photoconductive

drum and a visible image is produced.

6.  1st Transfer:  Transfers the visible toner image

on the photoconductive drum to the transfer belt.,

 

7.  2nd Transfer:  Transfers the toner image  from the transfer belt to the paper.

 

8.  Fusing:  Fuses the toner to the paper by

applying heat and pressure.

 

 

9.  Cleaning:  The residual toner is scraped  from

the drum by the rubber cleaning blade.

 

 

 

10.  Discharge:  The residual charges are removed from the surface of the drum ready for the next page.

Invention

 

In 1937 Bulgarian physicist Georgi Nadjakov discovered the photoelectric effect. He found that when placed into electric field and exposed to light, some dielectrics acquire permanent electric polarization at the exposed areas. That polarization persists, in the dark and is destroyed in light. Chester Carlson, the inventor of photocopying, was originally a patent attorney and part time researcher and inventor. His job at the patent office in New York required him to make a large number of copies of important papers. Carlson, who was arthritic, found this a painful and tedious process. This prompted him to conduct experiments in the area of photoconductivity, through which multiple copies could be made with minimal effort. Carlson experimented with "electrophotography" in his kitchen and in 1938, applied for a patent for the process. He made the first "photocopy" using a zinc plate covered with sulfur. The words "10-22-38 Astoria" were written on a microscope slide, which was placed on top of more sulfur and under a bright light. After the slide was removed, a mirror image of the words remained. Carlson tried to sell his invention to some companies, but because the process was still underdeveloped he failed. At the time multiple copies were made using carbon paper or duplicating machines, and people did not feel any dire need for an electronic machine. Between 1939 and 1944, Carlson was turned down by over 20 companies, including IBM and GE, neither of which believed there was a significant market for copiers.

 

In 1944, the Battelle Memorial Institute, a non-profit organization in Columbus, Ohio, contracted with Carlson to refine his new process. Over the next five years, the institute conducted experiments to improve the process of electrophotography. In 1947 Haloid (a small New York based organisation manufacturing and selling photographic paper at that time) approached Battelle to obtain a license to develop and market a copying machine based on this technology.

 

Haloid felt that the word "electrophotography" was too complicated and did not have good recall value. After consulting a professor of classical language at Ohio State University, Haloid and Carlson changed the name of the process to "Xerography", derived from Greek words which meant "dry writing". Haloid decided to call the new copier machines "Xerox" and in 1948, the word Xerox was trademarked.

 

In the early 1950s, RCA (Radio Corporation of America) introduced a variation on the process called Electrofax where images are formed directly on specially coated paper and rendered with a toner dispersed in a liquid.
