(57) Abstract:
(EN): This printer (2) comprises: a head part (20) having a nozzle surface (32) that discharges ink toward an object; a drive mechanism (22) that causes the head part (20) to move in a first direction and in a second direction substantially orthogonal to the first direction; a nozzle cap (36) that is capable of moving between a first position, at which the nozzle surface (32) is capped, and a second position, at which the capping of the nozzle surface (32) is released; and a lock mechanism (28) that restricts movement of the head part (20) in the first direction and the second direction in a state in which the nozzle cap (36) is located at the first position.
(FR): L'invention concerne une imprimante (2) comprenant : une partie tête (20) ayant une surface de buse (32) qui décharge de l'encre vers un objet ; un mécanisme d'entraînement (22) qui amène la partie tête (20) à se déplacer dans une première direction et dans une seconde direction sensiblement orthogonale à la première direction ; un capuchon de buse (36) qui est apte à se déplacer entre une première position au niveau de laquelle la surface de buse (32) est coiffée et une seconde position, au niveau de laquelle le coiffage de la surface de buse (32) est libéré ; et un mécanisme de verrouillage (28) qui limite le mouvement de la partie tête (20) dans la première direction et la seconde direction dans un état dans lequel le capuchon de buse (36) est situé au niveau de la première position.
(JA): プリンタ(2)は、対象物に向けてインクを吐出するノズル面(32)を有するヘッド部(20)と、ヘッド部(20)を第1の方向及び第1の方向と略直交する第2の方向に移動させる駆動機構(22)と、ノズル面(32)をキャッピングする第1の位置及びノズル面(32)のキャッピングを解除する第2の位置との間を移動可能なノズルキャップ(36)と、ノズルキャップ(36)が第1の位置にある状態で、ヘッド部(20)の第1の方向及び第2の方向における移動を規制するロック機構(28)とを備える。
