Title (EN) PRINTER WITH AUXILIARY OPERATION
(FR) IMPRIMANTE A FONCTION AUXILIAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An identification card processor (10) receives cards from a hopper (14), and passes them through a graphic imager (30) for printing, and either prior to printing or subsequently, the cards (57) are positioned on an index table (44) that permits moving the cards about an axis to different positions for further operations. The further operations take place at a station (52) set off from the plane of movement of the cards (57) in the graphics imager (30) to conserve space. The indexing table (44) is capable of being indexed to any desired rotational position in a full 360° of movement, and for moving a card (57) under positive drive (32, 64, 68, 102) to and from the indexing table (44).
(FR) Processeur (10) de carte d'identification qui reçoit les cartes en provenance d'un magasin d'alimentation (14) et les fait passer par un imageur (30) graphique pour impression. Avant ou après l'impression, les cartes (57) sont positionnées sur une table (44) d'indexation qui permet de déplacer les cartes dans différentes positions autour d'un axe pour des opérations additionnelles. Ces opérations additionnelles se déroulent sur un poste (52) en retrait du mouvement plan des cartes (57) dans l'imageur (30) graphique, ce qui permet un gain de place. La table d'indexation (44) permet une indexation dans n'importe quelle position rotationelle sur 360°, et d'assurer le déplacement d'une carte (57) par entraînement direct (32, 64, 68, 102) sur et hors de la table d'indexation (44).
