Title (EN) PRINTER WITH MULTI-PASS MEDIA TRANSPORT
(FR) IMPRIMANTE A TRANSPORT DE SUPPORT MULTIPASSAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A thermal printer and method for operating a thermal printer are provided. The thermal printer has a receiver medium path leading past a print nip between a print head and platen. A processor causes an urge roller to move the receiver medium in the forward direction until a trailing edge of the receiver medium is moved to a point where reverse movement of the receiver medium causes the receiver medium to located against a stop surface. The processor then enables the receiver medium to travel in the reverse direction to engage the stop surface wherein the receiver medium path guides the receiver medium along a path of known length from the stop surface to a print line at the print nip.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une imprimante thermique et un procédé pour faire fonctionner une imprimante thermique. Cette imprimante thermique présente une voie pour support récepteur qui fait passer par une ligne de contact entre une tête d'impression et une platine. Un processeur ordonne à un rouleau de contrainte de déplacer le support récepteur dans la direction d'avance, jusqu'à ce qu'un bord arrière du support récepteur soit déplacé à un point où le mouvement inverse du support récepteur implique que ce dernier se trouve contre une surface de butée. Le processeur permet ensuite au support récepteur de se déplacer dans le sens inverse afin de s'engager avec la surface de butée. La voie pour support récepteur guide le support récepteur sur une voie de longueur connue à partir de la surface de butée, jusqu'à une ligne d'impression au niveau de la ligne de contact.
