Abstract

When sheets of paper are printed from a roll paper supply, the several printed sheets may retain the curl imparted by being stored in a roll form. This is particularly true of coated papers used in thermal and electroerosion printing.

Printer Paper Straightener

When sheets of paper are printed from a roll paper supply, the several printed sheets may retain the curl imparted by being stored in a roll form. This is particularly true of coated papers used in thermal and electroerosion printing.

The roll paper supply shown in the figure has paper supplied as a continuous web 5 from a supply roll 6 by a feed roll 7 and cooperating pressure roll 9 past a print head 10. The web 5 of paper is drawn over a small diameter bar or roll 13 to stretch the paper key on the yield point, causing permanent deformation and enabling the paper thereafter to lie flat. The small diameter element 13 may be a bar or, if friction on the paper is not desired, a movable roll.
