Title: HOLDER DEVICE FOR A PRINTER
Abstract:
A tensioner device (100) for use with a printing device is described which is to hold an end of a print target holder sheet (106) in a substantially planar configuration across a platen (402) of a printing device. The tensioner device can be fixed to a frame (200) attachable to a platen (402) of a printing device. The tensioner device has a first surface (102), and the frame has a second surface (202) corresponding to the first surface (102). The first surface (102) is formed to slide along the second surface (202) in a first direction having an oblique angle with respect to a plane of the print target holder sheet. A fixing mechanism (103) is also described which allows the first surface (102) to be fixed to the second surface (202) at different positions along the first direction. An apparatus including the tensioner device (100) and the frame (200) is also described. A system including a printer, a platen (402), tensioner devices (100) and frames (200) is also described.
