Xerox 1045

March 1983: Xerox announces the third copier in the 10-series, the Xerox 1045.

Designed in the UK, and manufactured in Venray.

Xerox 1045 had the ability to produce A3 * copies of 1 to 1, and it had 2 reductions of 71% and 62%.

The 1045 could be delivered in four different configurations. In the image section below, you can see the different models.

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.

1045 code name Alpine was indeed a drum machine.
i was the covers industrial design engineer, along with the covers mechanical engineers, responsible for getting the production machine to look like the model and stylist illustrations. I also engineered the control panel for this machine, the 1050, the 8300

“True” 10 series in that it used the same photoreceptor belt technology as the 1075. Code name Hannibal. My two trips to Welwyn Garden City (I was a xerographic technologist based in Webster) involved consulting on this machine.

Sorry, but I have to correct you. The 1045 used a drum and the 1075 used a photoreceptor belt. The code name Hannibal belongs to the 5046. I started as a service engineer with the 1045 in 1986 and also participated on the first training for 5046.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
