Xerox Digital Printing System
Needs- The stack mush have a uniform shape
- Two types of good stacks
Simple stack (no offset)
Requirements- A design and model/ prototype of the stack quality detection system
Stack Quality- The stack is supposed to have a uniformed shape.
Concept 1: Multi Shelving
Concept 2: Single Stack Mechanical Tray
Concept 3: Offset Belt Feed
Concept 4: Attachable Shelving Bins
Determining Weight Factors
Weighted Selection Matrix
This makes it easier to handle by the customer.
It enables the stack to be transferred easily to a third‐party.
Cost efficient and easily integrated into the system that exists.
It will allow for a large amount of papers to be printed, stacked, and moved at one time.
The shelves are attached to a rack which contains the electronics that operate the shelf rotating process.
Once the printing process is completed or the current shelving bin has run out of space for more prints, the user will disconnect the information cable and move the attachable shelving bins to its final location.
This design will allow for very little interaction and need of a user. It will also allow for easy transport to a third party since the shelving bins could directly be moved to this location as long as its within a reasonable distance. This design is also reasonable cheap since most of the parts can be made of cheaper materials such as plastic or aluminum.
Our concept would be completely separate from the exiting systems, allowing it to be manually transported to a third party. First the shelving bins would be placed in front of the paper feed belt where the finished printed papers exit the printer. The user would then attach the information cable to the input located on the printer. This will allow for the paper count which is tracked by the printer system to relay this information to the shelving bin. After the first 50 sheets is counted and printed, a signal will be given to the shelving bin to rotate downwards allowing for a new shelve to take its place for the next 50 sheets. This process will continue until printing needs are met.
