Abstract

A supply roll 10 is loosely supported in a cradle 11. Paper 12 is pulled from the supply roll 10 and wound on the core of a take-up mechanism which includes rotatable drive flange 13. The take-up roll 17, paper 12 and supply roll 10 are maintained in fixed alignment by a common pressure flange 14 supported on frame 15 with a compression spring 16. The common pressure flange minimizes printed roll width, thereby minimizing roll diameter by using the supply roll 10 as the gauge. This configuration is useful for various diameters of the supply roll 10 and printed roll 17 used in printing mechanisms which record information on the paper 12.
