Machine Type:

  IBM Copier 1
  Introduced in 1970, the IBM Copier 1 produced plain paper copies at the rate of 600 per hour. The plain bond paper used by the machine is roll-fed, and each roll of IBM General Copy Bond had a capacity of approximately 625 letter-size copies. The roll feed also enabled the user to select either letter or legal size copies by pressing a button.

To operate the IBM Copier, the user selected the number of copies desired on the copy selector, placed the original face down on the flat document bed, closed the document cover, and depressed the start bar. No warm-up period was required, and the first copy was produced in 15 seconds. Subsequent copies were produced every 6 seconds.
