[Edit this paragraph] Xerox History
Qiesiteka Wilson (Chester F. Carlson) - a patent attorney and amateur
inventor, on October 22, 1938, in New York City's Astoria
(Astoria, Queens, New York City) A simple experiment room, the first
successful production of the first electrostatic copying images. He
spent several years trying to sell the patent, but failed. At that
time the company managers and entrepreneurs do not believe with carbon
copy paper, copy machine there will be any market, What was the
prototype copier is so bulky ugly. There were about 20 companies,
including IBM and General Electric Company, are to Carlson as
"no interest" approach rejected the invention.
Finally, in 1944, Ohio's Battelle Institute (Battelle Memorial
Institute) and Carlson entered into a contract to help him improve
what he called the "electronic image reproduction
technology" (electrophotography) of the invention. Three
years later, Rochester, New York, a manufacturer of photo paper Haloid
Company came to Battle, purchased to develop and market the invention
of the copier Carlson permission. Haloid Company later acquired all
the patents for this invention Carlson. Carlson and Haloid company
that the "electronic image reproduction technology,"
the word is too obscure. So they accepted the Ohio State University
professor of classical languages, a proposal to read
"xerography (xerography)", derived from the Greek
root word "dry" and "writing."
Haloid company has created another word "Xerox"
(Xerox) as a new copier trademark. "Xerography"
(used to describe the copying process) and "Xerox"
(logo products) that the two words in 1948 to market the same time.
Xerox of the first taste of success, the Haloid Company in 1958
changed its name to "Haloid Xerox." In 1961, when
the whole world to accept the first station to use plain paper
automatic office copier - Xerox 914 copier, when the company again
changed its name to "Xerox Corporation (Xerox

September 1999 is the Xerox 914 (because it uses the paper named as
9x14-inch) copier 40 anniversary. From 1959 to 1976, 914 discontinued
copier, Xerox Corporation produced a total of more than 200.00 units
of this model of copier. In 1985, launched 26 years after the copier
914, Xerox 914 copier company announced it would not renew the whole
security maintenance contracts. For still running into the 6,000 units
914 machines, Xerox will take materials and labor charges for
maintenance services alone mode. Today, the Xerox 914 copier has
become the Smithsonian's exhibits, as part of American
history. In some parts of the world, 914 machines are still used in
the customer's company, in South America, still maintain a
number of Xerox 914 copier units.
