Title: (DE) PRODUKTAUSRICHTUNG MITTELS EINES GEDRUCKTEN RELIEFS
(EN) PRODUCT ALIGNMENT USING A PRINTED RELIEF
(FR) ALIGNEMENT DE PRODUIT UTILISANT UN RELIEF IMPRIMÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A printing system capable of accurately positioning a lenticular array in registration with a rectilinear raster includes a printer that is capable of printing onto a printable surface. The printer has a main support surface on which the printable surface rests. The system further includes a series of raised parallel relief features being spatially formed along a printable substrate that is supported by the main support surface. The raised parallel relief features are raised to a sufficient height above the printable substrate such that when the lenticular array is disposed upon the raised parallel relief features, each raised parallel relief feature fits and is disposed within a valley formed between two respective adjoining lenticules of the lenticular array.
(FR) Système d'impression pouvant positionner précisément un réseau lenticulaire en alignement sur une trame rectiligne comprenant une imprimante qui peut imprimer sur une surface imprimable. L'imprimante comporte une surface de support principale sur laquelle repose la surface imprimable. Le système comprend en outre une série d'éléments en relief parallèles surélevés spatialement formés le long d'un substrat imprimable qui est supporté par la surface de support principale. Les éléments en relief parallèles surélevées sont surélevés à une hauteur suffisante au-dessus du substrat imprimable de telle sorte que, lorsque le réseau lenticulaire est disposé sur les éléments en relief parallèles surélevés, chaque élément en relief parallèle surélevé s'adapte et est disposé dans un creux formé entre deux lenticules attenants respectifs du réseau lenticulaire.
