Abstract

A common design for an ink jet printing device is to have a multi-jet printhead scan back and forth across a page as it prints a line (or several lines) at a time. The printhead or paper is then advanced after each successive scan to continue printing from top to bottom on the page. Such a device must incorporate a means for providing the printhead with ink. This may be done in several ways.
