    Chapter 1 b. Ink mists As the printhead jets an ink against paper to print, traces of ink mists floating during printing or springing back from the paper are produced in the print station. Such ink mists are collected by mist collection air flow into the printer. The uncollected portion of ink mists could smear the platen unit, carriage unit, exterior surfaces and the purge unit, and their surrounding areas.

    Chapter 1 1.7.2 Other Precautions 1.7.2.1 Printhead 0013-1936 a. Handling the printhead Do not unpack the printhead until it is ready for immediate use. When mounting the printhead on the printer, remove protective caps 1 and 2 in this order by holding them by the lugs. To prevent possible damage to the nozzle section, do not replace protective cap 2 on the printhead once it has been removed.

    Chapter 2 2.3 Printer Mechanical System 2.3.1 Outline 2.3.1.1 Outline 0012-6256 The printer mechanism is broken down into two broad sections: the passage and paper passage. Consisting mainly of a carriage unit that houses ink tanks and a printhead, and a maintenance cartridge, the ink passage supplies, circulates, sucks and otherwise handles inks.

  • Page 71: Ink Passage

    Chapter 2 2.3.2 Ink Passage 2.3.2.1 Ink Passage 2.3.2.1.1 Overview of Ink Passage 0013-6730 The ink passage comprises ink tanks, a printhead, caps, a waste ink collector, ink tubes interconnecting the mechanical components, and a suction pump that is driven to suck inks. It supplies, circulates, sucks and otherwise handles inks. The ink passage (per color) is schematically shown below, along with the ink flow.

  • Page 72: Ink Tank Unit

    Chapter 2 2.3.2.2 Ink Tank Unit 2.3.2.2.1 Structure of Ink Tank Unit 0013-6934 a) Ink tanks Each color-specific ink tank is filled with 130 mL of ink (90 mL for the starter ink tanks bundled with the printer). The ink level in each ink tank is memorized in EEPROM attached to the tank and is detected as a dot count on the basis of the EEPROM information.

  • Page 73

    Chapter 2 f) Ink supply valves Located halfway between the ink tanks and the ink tubes, the ink supply valves prevent the leakage of inks that might otherwise be caused by the opening of the ink tubes on the side of the ink tanks during their replacement. The ink supply valves are caused to open and close by the valve open/close mechanism that is activated by driving the valve motors.

    Chapter 2 2.3.2.3 Carriage Unit 2.3.2.3.1 Functions of Carriage Unit 0013-5642 a) Printhead mounting function The carriage, which fixes the printhead in position mechanically, is connected to the contact of the head relay PCB. b) Control function The carriage carries a carriage relay PCB, which relays printhead drive signals, and an encoder, which generates print timing signals. The carriage relay PCB is connected to the main controller by a flexible cable.

  • Page 75: Structure Of Carriage Unit

    Chapter 2 2.3.2.3.2 Structure of Carriage Unit 0012-6265 a) Printhead mount The printhead is secured to the carriage by the printhead fixer cover and the printhead fixer lever. When the printhead is secured to the carriage, the signal contact of the head relay PCB is pressed against that of the printhead to convey print signals. Further, the ink passage from the ink tanks is connected to the printhead via the ink tubes.

    Chapter 2 b) Wipers The wipers are driven by the purge motor to wipe the face of the printhead. A pair of two wiper blades are installed to ensure wiping performance. The wiping operation operates on a slide wiping basis, sliding the wiper blades via wiper cams through the rotation (normal) of the purge motor. Wiping is executed by the wiper blades moving at a constant speed to the front of the printer after the end of a print or suction operation.
