Title
(EN) FAX MACHINE WITH CONCURRENT DROP SELECTION AND DROP SEPARATION INK JET PRINTING
(FR) TELECOPIEUR A IMPRESSION PAR JET D'ENCRE AVEC SELECTION ET SEPARATION DE GOUTTELETTES SIMULTANEES
Abstract
(EN)
A facsimile machine having a print head comprising: (1) a plurality of drop-emitter nozzles; (2) a body of ink associated with said nozzles; (3) drop selection means for selecting predetermined nozzles and generating a difference in meniscus position between ink in selected and non-selected nozzles; and (4) drop separating means for causing ink from selected nozzles to separate as drops from the body of ink, while allowing ink to be retained in non-selected nozzles. A customized magazine and information distribution system which uses a color facsimile machine as the information delivery system. Daily news and other updated information is matched against a customer information request profile on a daily basis. This information is transmitted overnight to the customers facsimile machine, which uses a concurrent drop selection and drop separation drop on demand printing mechanism.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un télécopieur possédant une tête d'impression qui comprend les éléments suivants: (1) plusieurs buses émettrices de gouttelettes; (2) une réserve d'encre associée auxdites buses; (3) un dispositif de sélection des gouttelettes afin de sélectionner des buses prédéterminées et de créer une différence dans la position du ménisque entre les buses sélectionnées contenant de l'encre et celles non sélectionnées; et, enfin, (4) un dispositif de séparation des gouttelettes permettant à l'encre des buses sélectionnées de se séparer de la réserve d'encre sous forme de gouttelettes tout en assurant la rétention de l'encre dans les buses non sélectionnées. Cette invention concerne également un système personnalisé d'acheminement d'informations et de revues faisant appel à un télécopieur couleur pour servir de système d'acheminement des informations. L'actualité quotidienne ainsi que d'autres informations remises à jour sont confrontées chaque jour aux préférences des clients en matière d'informations. Ces informations sont transmises de nuit aux télécopieurs des clients qui font appel à un mécanisme d'impression du type 'gouttelettes à la demande' à sélection et à séparation simultanées des gouttelettes.
