What were old copy machines called?

The stencil duplicator or mimeograph machine (often abbreviated to mimeo) is a low-cost duplicating machine that works by forcing ink through a stencil onto paper.

Inventor Chester Carlson used static electricity created with a handkerchief, light and dry powder to make the first copy on Oct. 22, 1938. The copier didn’t get on to the market until 1959, more than 20 years later. When it did, the machine prompted a dramatic change in the workplace.FIRST COPIER

1. Office Copiers Need (a little) Care:

If the copier hasn’t been used for several days, such as over a weekend, it’s important to run a few test prints before using the copier intensively.

Make sure to replace old paper with a new stack and check for any jams before the day gets started.

Most copiers, when left idle for a period of time, will go into sleep mode and initiate a calibration mode once started up again.

Be patient. The machine is doing this for a reason and pressing the copy button a million times won’t speed up this important process.

BTW you can’t copy spaghetti

 

Kyocera’s Dealer Conference Focuses on Success

Kyocera’s Dealer Conference Focuses on Success

by Scott Cullen / iTchat

One couldn’t have selected a more fitting theme for this year’s Kyocera dealer conference than “Focus on Success,” especially since the company is coming off a strong year, enjoying a compound annual growth rate in the Americas of 10.2 percent for fiscal year 2012. Those are numbers some of its competitors would die for.

Be gentle with that machine!

A lot of copier problems would disappear if the user had a gentler touch when opening doors, pulling out paper trays, or closing covers.  The internal workings of a copier are very delicate – especially the wires, sensors, and circuit boards – and they can easily be broken or ripped out of place by a heavy hand.

Even when you replace toners or inks into a machine. Please follow the instructions on the machine to avoid the risk of a toner spill or breaking parts in the machine. Many of the toner housings have plastic handles. They can break very easily if you push or bend them the wrong way.

Even be careful when adding paper into the machine. You would be surprised how many times we get service calls just because someone added paper and moved the drawer orientation around and causes the paper to not come out of the machine the way it was originally intended. So if you try to make a copy, it may start coming out landscape and cutting off sections from the original. No matter what you do, you can’t fix it because the actual drawer orientation has changed.

These are a couple of good tips for you to be aware of. I know it can be a pain if the machine goes down and you need service. It’s beneficial to you and your company to keep these tips in mind so it will lessen any down time.
