Duplex Systems

This section describes the following suggested duplex configurations: Inline, Left-Angle, and H. Alternative configurations should be discussed with your IBM marketing representative.

The dimensions of the Duplex Printing System and the Buffer/Flipper Unit (1), the optimum separation of the units, the service clearance around the allowable configurations of these units, and the power cable and channel cable locations are shown in the following figures.

Note:
The minimum size for Channel Cable Access opening is 200 x 200 mm (8 x 8 in.).

Inline Configuration for All Infoprint 4100 Models with the Air Bearing Buffer/Flipper Unit

Figure 33. Inline configuration for all Infoprint 4100 Models with the Air Bearing Buffer/Flipper Unit
Inline configuration for all Infoprint 4100 Models with the Air Bearing Buffer/Flipper Unit
Notes:
  1. The Air Bearing Buffer/Flipper Unit must be specified for Infoprint 4100 Models HD3/4 in the inline configuration. It is optional for Infoprint 4100 Models PD1/2 and HD1/2.
  2. For Infoprint 4100 Models HD3/4, the inline configuration requires about 27 square feet more floor space than earlier HD3/4 models. The shaded areas indicate where changes were made to the inline configuration compared to earlier models.
    Note:
    Figure 34 compares the old footprint for Infoprint 4100 Models HD3/4 with the footprint for Models HD3/4 shipped after December 1, 2005.
  3. To allow for adequate cooling on Infoprint 4100 Models HD3/4, a minimum paper length of 3657.6 mm (12 feet) is required between the forms exit area and the point in the postprocessing device where the forms are stacked, folded, or rewound.
  4. With the Signature Page feature, an additional 305 mm (12 in.) are required between the output of Printer 1 and the Buffer/Flipper Unit
  5. Service clearance of 1574 mm (62 in.) is required with or without the CCD Cart feature.
  6. Figures are not drawn to scale.

Left-angle configuration for Infoprint 4100 Models HD3/4 with the Tall Buffer/Flipper Unit
Notes:
  1. The Tall Buffer/Flipper Unit must be specified for Models HD3/4 in the left-angle configuration.
  2. The left-angle configuration requires about 108 square feet more floor space than earlier Infoprint 4100 models. The shaded areas indicate where changes were made to the left-angle configuration compared to earlier models. Printer 2 was moved 1830 mm (6 feet) to the left and Printer 1 was moved 610 mm (2 feet) toward the bottom of the layout graphic.
    Note:
    Figure 37 compares the old footprint for Infoprint 4100 Models HD3/4 with the footprint for Infoprint Models HD3/4 shipped after December 1, 2005.
  3. To allow for adequate cooling, a minimum paper length of 3657.6 mm (12 feet) is required between the forms exit area and the point in the postprocessing device where the forms are stacked, folded, or rewound.
