Abstract

Ribbon lift guides 10 are moved through a complex path, as guided f, by stationary cam tracks 11 and 12 to maintain the forces between the ribbon 13 and guides 10 substantially normal. The upper and lower portions of cam tracks 11 and 12 are centered about the upper and lower edges of the ribbon as delivered from a spool or cartridge to the guides.
