Title (EN) INK JET PRINTER
(FR) IMPRIMANTE A JET D'ENCRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An ink flow control means for regulating the supply of ink from an ink reservoir (24) to a bi-directionally movable print head (12) of an ink jet printer. The control means deals with the problem of rapid starting and stopping of the ink to minimize fluctuations thereof during print head (12) reversal in direction of movement. An ink flow control valve (30) interposed in the ink supply line (28, 32) is arranged to close by reason of inertial forces on the valve (30) when the print head (12) is decelerated and accelerated near the two ends of its travel.
(FR)Des moyens de commande du debit d'encre servent a regler l'alimentation d'encre provenant d'un reservoir d'encre (24) vers une tete imprimante a deplacement bidirectionnel (12) d'une imprimante a jet d'encre. Les moyens de commande sont destines a resoudre le probleme de depart et d'arret rapide de l'encre pour en reduire au minimum ses fluctuations pendant l'inversion de la direction de deplacement de la tete imprimante (12). Une vanne de commande de debit d'encre (30) interposee dans la canalisation d'alimentation d'encre (28, 32) est concue pour se fermer par l'intermediaire de forces d'inertie sur la vanne (30) lorsque la tete imprimante (12) est ralentie et acceleree a proximite des deux extremites de sa course.
