Abstract

During printing, printer unit 1 on guide rod 7 is uniformly moved in the direction of the line by a tape, rope, or spindle drive. Hammer carrier 2 is attached to housing 13 by two leaf springs 12. Print hammers 3, actuated by driving elements 5 through push rods 4, are supported in hammer carrier 2. Eccentric 8 and driving shafts 6 are operated by a motor in housing 13. Rotating eccentric 8, via arms 2a, permits hammer carriers 2 to oscillate in the direction of the line. Driving shafts 6 accommodate chain guide 11 with rotating type chain 10 on which types 9 are mounted to yield in the direction of the line.
