Industries of America, along with its Ben Franklin Honor
Society, is proud to announce that Dr. Peter Crean, research fellow
for Xerox Innovation Group, has been named the recipient of the
2009 Robert F. Reed Technology Medal.
Dr. Crean has changed the industry for more than 35 years with his innovations and inventions. He is one of two senior fellows at Xerox, among 10,000 scientists and engineers. In 1970, he was one of three members of the initial engineering team that produced the first laser printer. For the past 20 years, Dr. Crean has been a leading member of all Xerox color programs and founded the Xerox color management group.
Dr. Crean has developed 40 patents throughout his career. His inventions include inkjet, image scanning, and color image processing. His first patent was started with Xerox's first CCD high-quality, high-speed document scanner (31-34), which he built. Some of Dr. Crean's patents are as follows:
His work spans several printing processes, including xerographic
and ink-on-paper imaging. Dr. Crean's more recent work, such as the
initial operational capable prototype for the Xerox iGen3 imaging
unit module, has assisted his company in being named the recipient
for many of the industry's awards. Many of the billons of printed
pages Xerox technology produces a month are formed with Dr. Crean's
The Robert F. Reed Technology Medal will be presented to Dr. Crean at a banquet during the 62nd Annual Technical Conference of the Technical Assn. of the Graphic Arts (TAGA) on March 16, 2010, at the Horton Grand Hotel in San Diego, CA.
