Title (EN) OFF-RADIAL-AXIS CIRCULAR PRINTING DEVICE AND METHODS
(FR) PROCEDES ET DISPOSITIF D'IMPRESSION CIRCULAIRE RADIAL HORS AXE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Method and apparatus for printing onto a rotating media is described. According to one embodiment, the printing system includes a print head that is laterally displaced from a radial printing radius, a rotating mechanism to rotate the media, and a controller to print onto an annular print area. The annular print area is defined by an inner hub circumference, two lines substantially parallel to the radial printing radius and tangential to the inner hub circumference, and an outer edge of the media. The print head moves about the annular print area by one or more motion mechanism and prints images onto the media.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant d'effectuer une impression sur un support rotatif. Dans un mode de réalisation, le système d'impression comprend une tête d'impression qui se déplace latéralement à partir d'un rayon d'impression radial, un mécanisme de rotation destiné à faire tourner le support et un contrôleur permettant d'effectuer une impression sur une zone d'impression annulaire. Ladite zone d'impression annulaire est définie par la circonférence interne d'un moyeu, deux lignes sensiblement parallèles au rayon d'impression radial et tangentes à ladite circonférence interne de moyeu, et à un bord externe du support. La tête d'impression se déplace autour de la zone d'impression annulaire à l'aide d'un ou de plusieurs mécanismes de déplacement et imprime des images sur le support.
