Title
(EN) THERMAL PRINTER
(FR) IMPRIMANTE THERMIQUE
Abstract
(EN) A printer including a supply roll of receiver media and a plurality of rollers to feed the receiver media through the printer. Means for maintaining a preselected tension of the receiver media between the supply roll and a pair of the plurality of rollers includes a motor with a torque limiter. The motor can be attached to the supply roll or to an optional pair of rollers adjacent the supply roll. A capstan roller having a high traction, non-marking surface is used in conjunction with the tension control.
(FR) La présente invention a trait à une imprimante qui inclut un rouleau d'alimentation de support de réception et une pluralité de rouleaux permettant de fournir le support de réception à travers l'imprimante. Un moyen permettant de conserver une tension présélectionnée du support de réception entre le rouleau d'alimentation et deux des multiples rouleaux inclut un moteur qui est équipé d'un limiteur de couple. Le moteur peut être attaché au rouleau d'alimentation ou à une éventuelle paire de rouleaux qui est adjacente au rouleau d'alimentation. Un rouleau de cabestan qui est doté d'une surface ne marquant pas et dotée d'une traction élevée est utilisé en association avec le contrôle de la tension.
