Xerox 5052

From the Xerox Products Guide 1988-89:

The 5052 takes our Integrated Design Philosophy to a new level. The 5052 offers every important automatic feature: duplexing, document handling, eduction/
enlargement, cover insertion, and an optional stapler/finisher. All while maintaining a brisk copy speed of 50-55 copies per minute.

The 5052 uses a two-roller developer system to ensure excellent character definition and uniform coverage of solid areas. The paper supply has a 2,220-sheet capacity. The Recirculating Document Handler accepts up to 50 originals, and the Computer Forms Feeder can automatically position and copy a 300-sheet stack of unburst computer fanfold. Other features include editing, user auditing, border deletion, split scan for book copying, job interrupt/recovery and margin shift. The easily understandable control panel and message display make the 5052 a cinch to operate, even for casual operators.
