Title
(EN) PRINTER WITH PRINTHEAD ASSEMBLY, CLUTCH ASSEMBLY, AND PRINTER RIBBON TRANSPORT ASSEMBLY
(FR) IMPRIMANTE AVEC ENSEMBLE TÊTE D'IMPRESSION, ENSEMBLE EMBRAYAGE ET ENSEMBLE DE TRANSPORT DE RUBAN D'IMPRIMANTE
Abstract
(EN)
A printer may include a printhead assembly a clutch assembly, and/or a printer ribbon transport assembly. The printhead assembly may include a printhead biasing assembly defining a biasing ramp which may be configured to apply a biasing force to a printhead support bracket so as to at least partially counteract a ribbon force. The clutch assembly may be configured to supply or take-up a printer ribbon with first and second spool engagement members of different diameters that frictionally engage first and second friction members. The printer ribbon transport assembly may include a rotation lock mechanism configured to prevent rotation of a ribbon take-up core when the take-up core is disengaged from a drive assembly so as to prevent a loss in ribbon tension.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une imprimante pouvant comprendre un ensemble tête d'impression, un ensemble embrayage, et / ou un ensemble de transport de ruban d'imprimante. L'ensemble tête d'impression peut comprendre un ensemble de sollicitation de tête d'impression définissant une rampe de sollicitation qui peut être configurée pour appliquer une force de sollicitation à une console porteuse de tête d'impression de façon à contrebalancer au moins partiellement une force exercée par le ruban. L'ensemble embrayage peut être configuré pour dévider ou recevoir un ruban d'imprimante à l'aide d'un premier et d'un deuxième organe d'interaction de bobine de diamètres différents qui coopèrent par frottement avec un premier et un deuxième organe à friction. L'ensemble de transport de ruban d'imprimante peut comprendre un mécanisme de blocage de rotation configuré pour empêcher la rotation d'un moyeu récepteur de ruban lorsque ledit moyeu récepteur est débrayé d'un ensemble d'entraînement de façon à empêcher une perte de tension du ruban.
