    The scanner mechanism offers two types of scanning: ADF scanning and flat-bed scanning. It automatically switches to the former at the start of a scan operation if the document front sensor inside the ADF detects a document. (1) ADF scanning: Document moves across stationary CIS unit Placing a document face up in the ADF activates the document front sensor, switching to ADF scanning.

    - Outer back cover (shown on page 3-41): Opening this cover allows the user to access paper jammed. It also guides paper pulled in from the paper tray into the printing section. - Paper feed roller (shown on page 3-42): This roller performs paper registration and feeds paper to the printing section precisely.

  • Page 64

    After the machine prints on the top face of the recording paper, the duplex print mechanism (for duplex print models) (detailed on page 3-46) drives the DX flapper in the duplex unit to switch the recording paper path and then drives the switchback roller (SB roller) to switch back the recording paper (that has just been printed on its top face and ejected temporarily to the duplex unit) toward the DX paper tray #1.

  • Page 65: Ink Supply And Ink Jet Mechanism

    3.2.2.1 Ink supply and ink jet mechanism [ 1 ] Overview The ink supply and ink-jet mechanism consists of the head/carriage unit, four ink cartridges, ink refill assembly, and four ink supply tubes. The head/carriage unit scans the surface of the recording paper, jetting out ink supplied through the ink supply tubes onto the paper to produce images.

  • Page 66: Features

    [ 2 ] Features A distinct feature of this machine is the use of ink supply tubes between the ink cartridges and the head/carriage unit. Relieving the head/carriage unit of the task of carrying heavy ink cartridges back and forth across the page, the approach generally adopted by other ink-jet printers, offers the following advantages.

  • Page 67: Head/carriage Unit

    [ 3 ] Head/carriage unit The head/carriage unit consists of a front end (ink-jet head) and a back end (damper and air vent unit) as shown below. The front end consists of metal plates laminated together and etched to form ink flow channels. Piezoelectric ceramic actuators generate the spray pressure.

  • Page 68

    Front end Front end components and their main roles - Piezoelectric plate Applying a voltage stretches the plate, serving as the actuator for spraying ink. Consisting of thin piezoelectric plates laminated together, this plate can be driven even by a low voltage. - Filter This removes foreign materials from the ink.

  • Page 69

    Ink spray function The head employs drop-on-demand ink-jet printing. Print commands to the drive circuit apply a bias voltage to the layer electrodes on the piezoelectric ceramic surface stretching the elements perpendicular to that surface. Drive signals removing this voltage for specific channel electrodes allow the piezoelectric elements to return to their original shape, sucking ink into the corresponding channels*.

  • Page 71

    Damping Without damping, ink pressure fluctuations directly affect the size of ink-jet head droplets, risking lower print quality. Each damper assembly has two chambers. The one on the right in the illustration below has a loose film across its top and serves as a damper. The film immediately flexes in and out in response to falls and rises in pressure, adjusting the chamber volume to counteract pressure fluctuations in the ink supply tubes.

  • Page 72

    ---------------------------------------- [ Tip: Air bubble growth ] ---------------------------------------- Liquid ink contains trace amounts of air. The amount varies with the pressure on the ink because increasing the pressure raises the ink's ability to absorb air from its surroundings and lowering the pressure forces the ink to give up some of this air. The ink pressure fluctuations caused by the piezoelectric ceramic actuators repeatedly expand and contract any air bubbles, growing them larger gradually.

  • Page 73

    -------------------------- [ Tip: What's so bad about air bubble growth? ] -------------------------- Pressure fluctuations do not affect the volume of a liquid (ink), but Boyle's Law says that the volume of a gas (air) varies with the pressure on it. The main issue with air bubbles in the ink flow path is their damping effect, absorbing the pressure from the piezoelectric ceramic actuators and thus degrading ink-jet performance.

  • Page 75

    Ink cartridge components and their main roles - Disc valve S A plastic needle in the refill base opens this valve to supply air to the ink cartridge. Removing the ink cartridge closes this valve to prevent leakage due to ink backflow. - Disc valve D A plastic needle in the refill base opens this valve to allow ink to flow out of the ink cartridge.

    Disc valve S Air intake port Ink empty sensor Sensor actuator Ink supply port (InkBackflowPrevention) Disc valve D Discrimination of ink cartridge type When the user is inserting an ink cartridge into the machine, a part of the cartridge interrupts the light paths of the ink cartridge detection sensor and ink empty sensor (both are photosensors of transparent type), which are mounted on the ink refill assembly as shown on the next page.

    Ink refill assembly components and their main roles - Ink refill case - Cartridge release levers - Ink refill base and its foam - Ink cartridge detection sensors (on the ink cartridge detection sensor PCB) - Ink empty sensors (on the ink empty sensor PCB) - Ink foam and its case Pushing each ink cartridge into the ink refill case until it clicks secures it and forces the cartridges' ink supply port into close contact with the ink refill base to prevent ink leakage.

  • Page 79: Head Maintenance Mechanism

    3.2.2.2 Head maintenance mechanism [ 1 ] Overview The head maintenance mechanism, which keeps the optimum head performance, consists of the maintenance unit and the ink absorber box. (See the illustration below.) The maintenance unit has the following mechanisms. - Head capping mechanism (See page 3-28.) - Carriage lock mechanism (See...

  • Page 81

    - Purge cam This rotating cam drives the pump switching unit, the air vent rods, and the head wiper. Each drive position of the purge cam is detected by the purge cam switch. (See Section 3.2.3.) - Pump switching unit This switches the application target of the negative pressure generated by the tube pump between the head cap for black ink, the one for color ink, and the air vent cap.

  • Page 82: Mechanisms Constituting The Head Maintenance Mechanism

    [ 3 ] Mechanisms constituting the head maintenance mechanism (1) Head capping mechanism The ASF motor drives the head capping mechanism. When the power is off or the machine is not printing, this mechanism fits the head cap unit (which contains two head caps) tightly over the print head to prevent the head nozzles from drying up and to keep dust off the head nozzle surface.

  • Page 83

    (3) Purge mechanism The paper feed motor drives the purge mechanism. The counterclockwise rotation of the paper feed motor drives the purge cam that aligns the pump switching unit with either the black or color ink drain position. Next, the paper feed motor reverses to activate the tube pump, producing negative pressure to drain the air and old ink from the head nozzles and channels into the ink absorber box.

    (3.1) Switching pump The pump switching unit switches the application target of the negative pressure generated by the pump between the head cap for black ink, the one for color ink, and the air vent cap. When the purge cam is in a head capping position and the head cap unit fits tightly over the print head, the pump switching unit is switched to the opening tube to the atmospheric air so that the pressure in the head caps and air vent cap returns to the normal atmospheric pressure.

    (4) Air removing mechanism Other two positions of the purge cam shift two slide cams--one for black ink, the other for color inks, producing vertical motion of a single air vent rod for black ink and three air vent rods for color ink, respectively.

    Adjusting the print head angle relative to carriage For optimal image printing, the print head nozzle array must be perpendicular to the head/ carriage unit's line of travel. Manufacturing limitations, however, make perfect alignment impossible during mass production. The angle must be adjusted at the individual machine level. The following describes this adjustment mechanism's components and their roles.

  • Page 93

    Height adjustment of the head/carriage unit For optimal image printing, a pair of slider cams mounted on the head/carriage unit switches the height of the head/carriage unit against the CR guide rail and support chassis between two levels--2.3 mm (for thick paper and envelops) and 1.6 mm (for other types of paper) in order to bring the optimum distance between the head nozzle surface and paper.

  • Page 94

    As listed below, the printer driver on the connected PC or the paper type setting on the machine controls the slider cams to determine the height of the head/carriage unit. Adjustment for: Controlled by: Thick paper and envelopes Other types of paper Printer driver (in printing from the PC) Paper type setting (in copying and printing via PhotoCapture Center)

    3.2.2.4 Paper pulling-in, registration, feeding and ejecting mechanisms These mechanisms are driven via a gear train by two motors--paper feed motor located on the left side of the engine chassis and ASF motor on the right side. (See the illustration on the next page.) The following illustration is a cross-sectional view of the machine viewed from the right.

  • Page 96

    Power transmission routes of the ASF motor and paper feed motor The rotational torque of the ASF motor is transmitted to the ASF/maintenance drive gear which always meshes with the clutch gear L, as described in Section 3.2.2.2, [ 4 When the mode switching lever is in the left position (normal SF, high-speed feed, or LT mode), the clutch gear L also meshes with the ASF changeover gear which transmits the ASF motor rotation via a gear train to the paper pull-in rollers (that pull in paper from paper tray...

  • Page 97

    Normal SF, high-speed feed, and LT modes Normal SF mode (Paper tray #1 1st stage The ASF motor rotates clockwise (when viewed from the output gear side) and its rotational torque is transmitted to the ASF/maintenance drive gear that is always connected via the idle gear 16 to the clutch gear L.

  • Page 98

    LT mode (Paper tray #2) The machine has paper tray #2, from which paper is fed into the printing section in the LT mode. Just like the normal SF/high-speed feed modes, the LT mode uses the same components from the ASF/maintenance drive gear to the paper pull-in gear shaft. After the following process, the LT dedicated components are used.

  • Page 99

    Other controls Paper feed position and speed control A PF encoder disk with the resolution of 300 dpi (0.084 mm pitch) is mounted on the PF roller gear L. The PF encoder sensor uses it to generate a signal indicating the gear rotation speed--in other words, the paper feed roller speed--to the controller for use in controlling paper feed position and speed.

  • Page 100: Duplex Print Mechanism

    3.2.2.5 Duplex print mechanism The major components of the duplex print mechanism are a duplex print unit (duplex unit), link gear holder DX ASSY (black), and link gear holder LT DX ASSY (white). As described in Section 3.2.2.4, the paper pulling-in, registration, feeding and ejecting mechanisms eject the recording paper printed on its top face.

  • Page 101

    DX flapper drive mechanism The rotational torque of the ASF motor is transmitted to the cap lift cam gear in the maintenance unit. As shown below, the rotational torque is further transmitted via the link gear holder DX ASSY and the link gear holder LT DX ASSY to the DX gear 25/18 mounted at the right end of the duplex unit.

  • Page 102

    SB roller drive mechanism The rotational torque of the paper feed motor is transmitted to the paper ejection roller shaft on which the paper ejection roller SB gear is mounted. As shown below, the rotational torque is further transmitted via the SB gears A to D to the SB roller drive gear. The torque transmission to the SB roller can be disengaged by the SB clutch lever engaged with the outer profile of the DX cam.

  • Page 103

    Recording paper feeding/ejecting control in duplex printing In duplex printing, the machine feeds and ejects the recording paper by driving the paper pull-in rollers, paper feed roller, and SB roller. In the descriptions below, the rotational directions of those rollers are as viewed from the left side of the machine. Top-face printing The paper pull-in rollers and the paper feed roller are concurrently driven to feed the recording paper.

  • Page 104

    After the paper reaches the paper feed roller (rotating counterclockwise), the paper pull-in rollers keep rotating clockwise. This assures paper buckling to separate the paper from the inner chute, preventing paper from lifting from the platen. This concurrent drive continues until the leading edge of the paper comes under the star wheels on the CR support chassis.
