    I've worked on some of these machines when they were plentiful.

    Does anybody remember them?

    Yeah there are a few I recognize. And a few I would like to forget.

    Anyone remember the high speed e stats that SCM made for a while. They were built on the same floor standing frame as the Model 55 Electrostatic Copier and used high intensity Xenon strobes for exposure. The paper never stopped. When it hit the registration switch the strobes fired. The output of the strobe power pack was enough voltage and current to be lethal. I had to replace one once. The new power pack came with a booklet of instructions on exactly how to remove the old unit and the needed shorting plugs to attach before removing.

    Damn it. The power pack reminds me of the old CRT's in the old TV's. Those have bitten me before something fierce. lol

    KenB has corrected my fuzzy memory!

    The machine pig I was referring to as the Canon PPC-1, was the sweet SAXON PPC-1.

    I worked at a silicon disk inspection camera manufacture as a production/inventory goon at COBILT.

    Same inspection type of equipment.

    We called the place CO-BITE. Silicon Valley about 1974 to 1976 time frame.
