Title (EN) METHOD FOR INTERCHANGING COMPONENTS IN A PRINTING APPARATUS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ POUR ÉCHANGER DES COMPOSANTS DANS UN APPAREIL D’IMPRESSION
Abstract:
(EN) A method may include the steps of providing a printing assembly that includes a plurality of printing modules (M1-M4) that each include a specific toner color, wherein a first printing module (M2) is failing and at least one second printing module (Ml) is functioning; determining a toner use demand for the plurality of printing modules; and swapping the first printing module with the at least one second printing module to facilitate reducing a downtime of the printing apparatus, wherein the first printing module has a toner use demand that is substantially greater than the toner use demand of the at least one second printing module.
(FR) Un procédé peut comprendre les étapes consistant à utiliser un système d’impression qui comporte une pluralité de modules d’impression comportant chacun une couleur de toner spécifique, un premier module d’impression étant en panne et au moins un deuxième d’impression fonctionnant ; déterminer une demande d’utilisation de toner pour la pluralité de modules d’impression ; et échanger le premier module d’impression avec le ou les deuxièmes modules d’impression pour faciliter la réduction d’une durée d’indisponibilité de l’appareil d’impression, le premier module d’impression ayant une demande d’utilisation de toner qui est sensiblement plus grande que la demande d’utilisation de toner du ou des deuxièmes modules d’impression.
