Title (EN) NOZZLE LAYOUT FOR FLUID DROPLET EJECTING
(FR) CONFIGURATION D’AJUTAGE POUR PROJECTION DE GOUTTELETTES DE FLUIDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A fluid ejection apparatus includes a printhead having a substrate. The substrate includes a nozzle face having a width direction and a length direction. The nozzle face includes a set of four columns of nozzles oriented in a column direction substantially along the width direction of the nozzle face, and the nozzles in each column are positioned on a straight line along the column. A spacing between two adjacent columns of the four adjacent columns is different than a spacing between another two adjacent columns of the four adjacent columns. In some implementations, a controller can control timing of ejection of fluid droplets from the nozzles to deposit lines of fluid droplets on a medium, and the medium can travel relative to the nozzle face.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un appareil de projection de fluide qui comprend une tête d'impression munies d’un substrat. Le substrat comprend une face de buse présentant une direction de largeur et une direction de longueur. La face de buse est munie d’un ensemble de quatre colonnes de buses orientées sensiblement le long de la direction de la largeur de la face de buse ; les buses dans chaque colonne sont positionnées en ligne droite le long de la colonne. L’espacement entre deux des quatre colonnes adjacentes est différent de l’espacement entre les deux autres colonnes adjacentes. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un dispositif de commande peut commander la synchronisation de la projection des gouttelettes de fluide par les buses de façon à déposer des lignes de gouttelettes de fluide sur un support qui peut se déplacer par rapport à la face de buse.
