multiple-choice test covering operation of the automatic print processor.
Learning Event 1:
DESCRIBE THE VERSAMAT 11C-MW FILM PROCESSOR
1. Semiautomatic continuous processing machines for film and/or paper are
utilized throughout Army laboratories where large amounts of intelligence or
motion picture work are performed.
One of the processors most likely to be
encountered in the lab is covered in this lesson.
The "Kodak Versamat" film processor.
a. This processor (fig 2-la) is an automatic, rapid-processing machine
designed to handle black and white roll film in width from 16mm to 241.3mm (9.5
inches) in any lengths and cut film ranging from 101.6mm by 127mm (4 by 5
inches) to 279.4mm by 355.6mmm (11 by 14 inches).
The Versamat can also
process two rolls of 70mm or 90mm, or three rolls of 16mm or 35mm film
b. Operating speed of the processor ranges from 2 1/2 to 25 feet per
minute. On some models of the Versamat processor, a modification of the drive
system is necessary to increase the speed to 25 feet per minute.
c. Figure 2-1b is an inside view of the major parts of the Versamat 11C-
