Title (EN) PRINTING METHOD USING A DUAL-ENGINE PRINTING SYSTEM
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'IMPRESSION PAR SYSTÈME À DOUBLE MOTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) Methods for printing using a dual-engine printing system are disclosed herein. An exemplary dual-engine printing system includes a first print engine, a second print engine, and a print media source including a continuous web or separate sheets of print media. Multiple first pairs of images each including a first image and a second image are printed on a first side of the print media by the first print engine, and multiple second pairs of images each including a first image and a second image are printed on a second side of the print media by the second print engine. The print media is then arranged, trimmed if necessary, and bound such the first image faces the second image for each of the first pairs of images as well as each of the second pairs of images. In another embodiment, each of the multiple pairs of images includes a first image printed on a first half of a sheet and a second image printed on the second half of the same sheet. The sheets are arranged and bound along a central axis such that each image from the first pairs of images faces another image from the first pairs of images, and each image from the second pairs of images faces another image from the second pairs of images.
(FR) Procédés reposant sur l'emploi d'un système d'impression à double moteur. A titre d'exemple, un tel système peut comprendre un premier moteur d'impression, un second moteur d'impression et une source de support d'impression sous forme d'un ruban continu ou de feuilles distinctes. Des premières paires multiples d'images comprenant chacune une première image et une seconde image sont imprimées sur un premier côté du support d'impression par le premier moteur d'impression, et des secondes paires multiples d'images comprenant chacune une première et une seconde image sont imprimées sur un second côté du support d'impression par le second moteur d'impression. Le support d'impression est ensuite assemblé, au besoin rogné, puis relié de sorte que la première image fait face à la seconde image pour chacune des premières paires d'images ainsi que pour chacune des secondes paires d'images. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, chacune des paires multiples d'images comprend une première image imprimée sur une première moitié de la feuille et une seconde image imprimée sur la seconde moitié de cette même feuille. Les feuilles sont assemblées et reliées selon un axe central de sorte que chaque image des premières paires d'images fait face à une autre image de la seconde paire d'images, et que chaque image de la seconde paire d'images fit face à une autre image des secondes paires d'images.
