In August 1998, Sharp® released the AL-1000 family of digitallaser copier/printers, which consisted of the AL-1000, AL-1010 and AL1041. All featured a copy speed of 10-ppm with a print speed of 8 ppm. The base AL-1000 and AL1010 models offered a user-installedprinter capability upgrade, while the high-end AL-1041model included a scan once/print many feature and printer capabilities. Sharp later used the same engine for the AL-1200 series which offered thesame capabilities as the AL-1000 machines, but featured an increased copy speed of 12 ppm. Released three months later, the Xerox® Document WorkCentre® XD100/102 digital copier/printers used the same600-dpi Sharp engine. However, unlike the Sharp machines, Xerox shipped the XD models with the printing capability installed. The XD offered a copy speed of 10 ppm and a print speed of 8 ppm, andshipped with a starter cartridge. The Sharp engine featured a dual-component developing system which utilized separate drum and toner cartridges, which are fairly easy to assemble and disassemble. The wiperblade is made of Polyurethane attached to a metal stamping, and the steel doctor blade is in a fixed position. The developer roller has an aluminum sleeve with a silver coating. Although the Sharpand Xerox cartridges use the same internal components, the cartridges are not interchangeable between printers without modification.
