Xerox 1050

March 1986: Xerox announces the Xerox 1050.

The Xerox 1050 could handle computer forms, add front and back covers automatically insert divider sheets as copies was made. The copier produced 55 copies a minute.

In Europe the Xerox 1050 was produced at Venray in the Netherlands.

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.
