The Xerox 2600 makes 720 copies in one hour. 12 copies in a minute. This model was introduced in October 1977. The machine had a simple operator panel, with a dialer for entering copies from 1 to 39, and then the green start button.  The specially designed platen glass and cover, made it’s easy to copy bound volumes without damaging the binding.

    I still chuckle to myself when I think back on these 2600s – they actually had rudimentary diagnostics! …for a copier that was so slow, you could hand-write a copy off of the original before the copier was finished scanning the document. Someone in Webster’s electronics R & D department might have been gunning for a promotion….

    The monocoque cover was a trip, too: loosen the four Faston flat head screws and the whole thing came off. If you were in a hurry to clean out the optics cavity dashpot, you could get to it in record time – as if it mattered –

    That 3100 drum module with the auger assembly and sump tray liners “that never need replacing” (riiiight…) , the star wheel sensor on the vacuum transport assembly that always loaded up with the fog of loose toner dust and murdered those rubber transport belts, the quartz rod radiant fuser, those silly, soft developer housing shoes: my god, those were the days, brothers and sisters! And be sure that your tech vacuum cleaner had a bag installed!

    I loved the little 2600’s. I can’t imagine Xrox made any money off of them, but they made beautiful copies. ALL of mine – every single one – beats he targets by huge margins. Like the 3109, the exposure lamp was key on these machines. Someone finally got their head out of their backside and replaced those old steel unicovers with the plastic equivalent.

    Here in Argentina during the 80’s the 2600s were all the rage for making paper masters for small offset shops. Many customers even asked us to disconnect the motion sensor and trick the PCB into believing the fuser were already up to temp. With this configuration, the copy always ended in a paper jam condition, where the operator could then open the machine and pick up the unfused master, to do any cleaning and touch up before hand-fusing it!

    Not looking at a picture of this machine for a long time. It was my favorite copier. I learned to repair this equipment at the age of 12 years old and now I am 43, I still remember many parts: module, fuser, the feeder bands, clutch, bands transportation, sensor transport, PCB, PS, roller rubber foam the development unit, doctor blade, triac, lamp, and many more. I worked at Xerox from age 17 to 22 in Mexico and went technician for 18 years.

  6. Are you kidding, I was a Xerox rep and i can still recite the Xerox 2600 demo that I had to learn before leaving for Leesberg, VA. “For years Xerox has marketed copiers designed to satisfy the requirements of many different businesses…….”

    Wow!
