Title
(EN) INK JET PRINTING APPARATUS WITH INTEGRAL DEFLECTOR
(FR) APPAREIL D'IMPRESSION PAR JET D'ENCRE AVEC DEFLECTEUR INTEGRE
Abstract
(EN)
A continuous stream ink jet printer is provided having an ink droplet forming mechanism for ejecting a stream of ink droplets having a selected one of at least two different volumes toward a print medium and a droplet deflector and ink conduit which are integrally formed to the printhead for producing a flow of gas that interacts with the ink droplet stream to separate droplets having different volumes and collects all droplets not used for printing. The provision of integrally forming the gutter system with the droplet forming mechanism eliminates the requirement to align an external gutter system upon full print engine assembly.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une imprimante à jet d'encre à flux continu comprenant un mécanisme de formation de gouttelettes d'encre destiné à éjecter un flux de gouttelettes d'encre présentant un volume sélectionné parmi au moins deux volumes différents en direction d'un support d'impression, ainsi qu'un déflecteur de gouttelettes et un conduit d'encre formés en un seul bloc avec la tête d'impression en vue de la production d'un flux de gaz qui interagit avec le flux de gouttelettes d'encre de sorte que les gouttelettes présentant des volumes différents soient séparées et que toutes les gouttelettes non utilisées pour l'impression soient collectées. Le fait de former le système collecteur en un seul bloc avec le mécanisme de formation de gouttelettes permet de supprimer la nécessité d'aligner un système collecteur externe avec un ensemble moteur d'impression complet.
