Abstract

Disclosed is the use of datums on the heatsink of one of the print elements contained in a Thermal Ink Jet (TLT) printing machine for both cartridge alignment and alignment of the print element within the cartridge. This helps to reduce the build up of errors in the cartridge which is especially critical when multiple print elements are used.
