Title (EN) THERMAL PRINTING WITH LASER ACTIVATION
(FR) IMPRESSION THERMIQUE AVEC ACTIVATION LASER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and apparatus for implementing thermal printing techniques onto thermally sensitive print media use one or more laser arrays to provide optical heating. Technique for alignment of multiple monolithic arrays onto a common carrier are described, the axis of the at least one laser array being disposed obliquely to a transport direction of print media.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil de mise en application d'une technique d'impression thermique sur des supports d'impression thermosensibles utilisant une ou plusieurs rangées de lasers pour produire un chauffage optique. La technique d'alignement de rangées monolithiques multiples sur un support commun est aussi décrite, l'axe d'au moins une rangée de lasers étant disposé obliquement par rapport au sens de transport des supports d'impression.
