Integral Motor Printer Assembly

The device as shown schematically in the drawing depicts an integral motor having an integral shaft 10, which functions as the support shaft for motor assembly 22 and lead screw 12 for supporting load 14. Load 14 has the capability of moving along the lead screw 12 in the direction shown by arrow 16.

Lead screw 12 is supported on two sets of thrust bearings, one of which is located in printer housing 18 and the second thrust bearing is located in the motor housing.

Printed-circuit armature 26 together with the hub is mounted on extension shaft 10 of the lead screw 12. Further along the extension shaft of the lead screw is a tachometer and housing assembly which serves as feedback transducer to the motor driver. Keeper 20 mates with rear cover 22 and prevents the lead screw 12 and its extension shaft 10 from rotating while in transit.
