Combined Copying

This mode can be used to select a reproduction ratio automatically and copy the originals onto a single sheet of copy paper.

The machine selects a reproduction ratio between 25 and 400%. If the orientation of the original is different from that of the copy paper, the machine will automatically rotate the image by 90 degrees to make copies properly.

Orientation of the original and image position of Combine

The image position of Combine differs according to original orientation and the number of originals to be combined.
