Abstract

This idea concerns placing special characters on a print wheel in accordance with a customer-s needs. An unwanted character slug (or slugs) can be removed along with its beam (or beams) from a print wheel. The void created would then be filled by a mini-spider with one or more beams on it carrying the specific character slug or slugs desired, This method of providing special characters on a print wheel is cheaper than building entirely new molds for only one or a few special characters on a limited number of print wheels.
