Abstract

A problem exists for direct marking technologies, such as thermal ink jet printing systems because the printed sheet must be held to the desired flatness and position at some angle between horizontal and vertical against the force of gravity. Existing models have employed vacuum holddown platens to accomplish this function, but this method is both costly and unreliable.
