Title
(EN) PRINT HEAD CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE CONNECTEUR DE TÊTE D'IMPRESSION
Abstract
(EN)
There is a print head connector assembly for a printer, the print head connector assembly providing at least one continuous fluid and/or electrical connection between a first port and a second port, the at least one continuous connection being provided by at least one conduit. The print head connector assembly comprises: a first component connectable to an umbilical conduit at the first port; a second component connectable to a print head at the second port, wherein one of the first component and the second component comprises a print head connection axis at the second port and the other of the first component and the second component comprises an axis of rotation, the first component and the second component housing the at least one conduit; adjustment means between the first component and the second component for adjusting the print head connector assembly into a plurality of configurations, wherein each of the plurality of configurations has a respective rotational relationship between the first component and the second component, and wherein in each of the plurality of configurations the print head connection axis and the axis of rotation are substantially parallel and aligned; and a locking component for locking the print head connector assembly in each of the plurality of configurations. There is also a printer and a method of assembling a print head connector assembly.

L'invention concerne un ensemble connecteur de tête d'impression pour une imprimante, l'ensemble connecteur de tête d'impression fournissant au moins une connexion fluidique et/ou électrique continue entre un premier orifice et un second orifice, ladite connexion continue étant fournie par au moins un conduit. L'ensemble connecteur de tête d'impression comporte : un premier élément pouvant être relié à un conduit ombilical au niveau du premier orifice ; un second élément pouvant être relié à une tête d'impression au niveau du second orifice, l'un du premier élément et du second élément comprenant un axe de liaison de tête d'impression au niveau du second orifice et l'autre du premier élément et du second élément comprenant un axe de rotation, le premier élément et le second élément logeant le ou les conduits ; des moyens de réglage entre le premier élément et le second élément pour régler l'ensemble connecteur de tête d'impression selon une pluralité de configurations, chacune de la pluralité de configurations ayant une relation de rotation respective entre le premier élément et le second élément, et dans chacune de la pluralité de configurations, l'axe de liaison de tête d'impression et l'axe de rotation étant sensiblement parallèles et alignés ; un élément de verrouillage pour verrouiller l'ensemble connecteur de tête d'impression dans chaque configuration de la pluralité de configurations. L'invention concerne également une imprimante et un procédé d'assemblage d'un ensemble connecteur de tête d'impression.
