Title (EN) PRINTER RIBBON CARTRIDGE WITH REINKING ROLLER
(FR) CARTOUCHE POUR RUBAN D"IMPRIMANTE COMPRENANT UN ROULEAU DE REENCRAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A printer ribbon cartridge (10) having a base and a removable hinged lid is disclosed, wherein ribbon (12) is driven through the cartridge by a drive gear coupled with first and second idler gears. A foam reinking roller (30) supplies ink to an ink transfer roller (26) which transfers ink to the ribbon as it passes thereby. The reinking roller includes sandwiched foam layers (32, 34) with an ink impervious layer (36) therebetween, in order to control ink seepage and ensure an adequate reinking across the width of the ribbon.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une cartouche (10) pour ruban d"imprimante comprenant une base et une protection amovible à charnière, ledit ruban (12) étant entraîné dans la cartouche par un engrenage d"entraînement couplé à des premier et deuxième engrenages intermédiaires. Un rouleau (30) de réencrage en mousse distribue de l"encre à un rouleau (26) de transfert d"encre qui transfère l"encre sur le ruban au passage de ce dernier. Le rouleau de réencrage comporte des couches (32, 34) intercalées en mousse entre lesquelles se situe une couche (36) imperméable à l"encre, ceci permettant de limiter le suintement de l"encre et d"assurer un réencrage adéquat sur la largeur du ruban.
