No, but you are in the right ball park.
Ok, its a UV exposure table to make photosensitive prints.
This is also true. However, there is something special about this table. I'll add another pic. See if you can tell me what it is.
Blueprint drafting table
Does it photocopy drafting & blueprints for electronic transmission/storage?
Both guesses are in the ballpark but not correct.
Blueprints are the copy, not the original.
However, this machine is used in the process of making a copy of an original large format drawing. However, this machine was a huge advance in efficiency for architects and engineers when producing technical drawings. Can anyone tell me why? The clue is in the second picture.
The series 100 changed the game because it lights up so bright
lol. Think about something other than the light.
The series 100 runs hot and needs fans because it so intense. Yunno because of the heating of the printing toner that copies blueprins at full size in the office
Nope. It actually runs quite cool. It does not have toner (and if it did, you still don't heat toner). This machine is an exposure machine only. A separate machine does the developing.
Hint: This machine helped bridge the gap in efficiency between the old way of hand drawing every single detail on every single sheet of a set of plans and the modern way of using Auto Cad. We apparently don't have any architects/engineers in the room.
Separate names with a comma.
