copier that you can set X and Y independently

Jump to solution

I'm looking for an affordable copier in which the X and Y can be set at separate values. The X needs to be set at 60, and the Y at 100. It is for a small family business, so I'm not looking for a commerical machine. I would also like something that I could perhaps get at an office max or staples or Sam's club - though not necessary. Please respond here or email me at puja.khare@gmail.com.

You should call a Xerox rep local to whichever Country you are in. Xerox is massive, and has printers from $200 up to those that can be configured in the hundreds of thousands of dollars (US). They also sell different devices in different markets.

 

Affordable depends on the intended use and expected options and output/input.

 

You don't mention what exactly your 100 or 60 even indicates, it could be millimeters, percents, inches,pixels.

If you are looking for a machine that will take a 10cm by 10 cm document, and squish it so the output is 10cm by 6cm then I doubt you will find one, all that will do is distort the image and make it worse. Which is the same reason you typically need to click something to unlock the feature in Image editors (It's a chain in Adobe products, i't a "maintain Aspect Ratio" box in PAINT) Copiers don't typically allow it to be disabled.

Thank you. 60 and 100 are percentage. I'm finding most copier do not allow you to set them at separate values, they have to be the same. I am looking for a small family business, so ideally around $500 -1,000.

I believe most companies won't implement a feature that makes things look bad and this would be one of them.

Text loses it's crispness, images lose detail.

I appreciate your opinion, however, the small business creates birth and death certificates for the state of Pennsylvania. The state requires the aforementioned standards and have developed the form in which the image turns out looking just fine, and does not look "bad." The state suggested a copier made by Sharp, which is no longer being made anymore. I am looking for a copier to replace the phased out one.

My opinion is besides the point, I am graphically showing the "why" the manufacturers all seem to have eliminated the option.

I'm not Xerox and I don't make feature decisions, but I do work for Xerox. I don't know of any machines that do in fact do what you want, some old Konica Minoltas did, but the newer ones at my wife's office don't do it either, my mother in law has a Brother that doesn't do it, I have no experience with Canon at all.

 

Looks like Sharp has dropped it as well, at least they don't list it on anything in the lineup here.
