Abstract

Print head 1 of an electroerosion printer consists of two plates 2, 3 between which 32 electrodes 4 are fixed. When electrodes 4 are moved across the special print paper during printing, their print faces 5 burn off the top coating and the vapor deposited aluminum of the paper. The burnt off matter is deposited as a solid crust on electrodes 4 and plates 2, 3. Electrodes 4 penetrate a foil 6 which is fixed to plates 2, 3 by bars 7, 8. This leads to the formation of saddle-shaped areas 9 between the individual electrodes 4, which protect the electrode surfaces protruding from the plates and cover the corners 10 formed by electrodes 4 and plates 2, 3. The saddle-shaped areas 9 have to be smooth.

Thin Foil Between Electrodes

       Print head 1 of an electroerosion printer consists of two
plates 2, 3 between which 32 electrodes 4 are fixed.  When electrodes
4 are moved across the special print paper during printing, their
print faces 5 burn off the top coating and the vapor deposited
aluminum of the paper.  The burnt off matter is deposited as a solid
crust on electrodes 4 and plates 2, 3.  Electrodes 4 penetrate a foil
6 which is fixed to plates 2, 3 by bars 7, 8.  This leads to
the formation of saddle-shaped areas 9 between the individual
electrodes 4, which protect the electrode surfaces protruding from
the plates and cover the corners 10 formed by electrodes 4 and plates
2, 3.  The saddle-shaped areas 9 have to be smooth.
