  • Page 33: The Printer

    The Printer The Xerox DocuTech 6100, 6115, or 6135 printer consists of the processor, the interposer (optional), and the finisher. The Xerox DocuTech 6155 or 6180 consists of the processor, the interposer, and the finisher. These modules work together to produce collated or uncollated, unfinished, stitched or bound prints as required.

    The system circuit breakers are located behind the door of the electrical module. To remove all power from the printer, all three circuit breakers must be in the down position. For the printer to operate properly, all three circuit breakers must be in the up position.
  • Page 35: The Laser

    The laser A laser is used to create an invisible image on the photoreceptor. The electronic master of a job communicates instructions to the laser, causing the laser to switch on and off to create the image. The fuser agent reservoir Fuser agent is used to prevent paper that is passing through the fuser from sticking to the fuser roll.
