September 1982: Xerox launches their first copier in the "Marathon" 10 series, the Xerox 1075.
The 10 series represented a new generation of copiers. This became the most successful line of copiers in Xerox history and served to restore the company's finances and morale. The flagship Xerox 1075 became the first American-made product to win Japan's Grand Prize for Good Design. Altogether, 14 models were introduced between 1982 and 1986, six of which were still sold in 1990.
The 1075, was a medium-sized copier that could make 70 copies a minute and was designed to make 25,000 to 100,000 copies a month.
