Lose Holiday Weight with your copy machine.

Christmas Parties = Holiday Weight

Waiting for copies at the copy machine? Take this time to sneak in a quick leg workout or tone your tummy.  Stretching and moving your legs builds muscle strength and endurance and prevents aches and leg pains.

Build leg muscles while making copies

How to do it: While holding on to the copy machine for balance, bring your knee up and down, or after bringing your knee up, extend your leg back. Try pulsing your leg to really get your muscles burning.

Toning your tummy

• Start with feet flat on the floor.
• Stand tall at your copier.
• Hold your abdominal muscles tight.
• Extend one leg until it is level with your hip.
• Hold for ten seconds.
• Slowly lower leg.
• Repeat 15 times.
• Change legs.

These exercises are subtle enough that if you hear someone coming, you can quickly stop.

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

We’ve been updating our website and added a new duplicator page. Not sure what a duplicator is Check it out when you get a chance!

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.

Copier tips: Remove jams & adding toner, how to avoid problems

Many copiers include diagrams on their inside covers that show exactly how you should remove a jam – what doors to open, where to pull the paper from, what rollers to turn.  Follow these instructions to avoid ripping the paper or damaging parts of the machine.

Most copiers also include instructions for loading new toner – either on the machine itself or packaged with the new toner.  Follow these instructions to avoid the risk of a toner spill or a broken part.  Many toner hoppers are made of plastic with plastic handles, and they can break very easily if you push or bend them the wrong way.
