(FR) SYSTEME AMELIORE DE STOCKAGE ET D"ALIMENTATION EN ENCRE D"IMPRESSION PAR JET DESTINE AU REMPLISSAGE D"UNITES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A container assembly (10) is provided for storing degassed ink used in a process for filling an inkjet cartridge. The container assembly includes a container (12) having a cavity for storing the degassed ink. A first quick-connect coupling (60) allows the container to be connected to associated filling equipment in an air tight manner. A second quick-connect coupling (40) provides connection with an associated vacuum pump of external degassing equipment. A vent opening (70) is provided in the container and is selectively sealed to maintain a vacuum envionment except during the filling process where the vent opening must be exposed to ambient.
(FR)L"invention concerne un contenant (10) de stockage d"encre dégazée utilisé pour remplir une cartouche d"encre d"impression par jet. Ce contenant comprend un récipient (12) pourvu d"une cavité de stockage d"encre dégazée. Un premier raccord rapide (60) permet de relier le contenant à l"équipement de remplissage associé de façon étanche, alors qu"un second raccord rapide (40) assure sa connexion à une pompe à vide associée d"un équipement de dégazage externe. Une ouverture de ventilation (70) pratiquée dans le contenant se ferme de façon sélective pour maintenir l"environnement sous vide sauf pendant l"opération de remplissage où cette ouverture de ventilation doit être exposée au milieu ambiant.
