Abstract

A single pass duplex system utilizing tandem thermal ink-jet (TIJ) marking assemblies is proposed. The direct marking capability of TIJ lends itself to a compact and cost effective arrangement to deliver efficient single pass duplex performance. An additional feature is the ability to provide a simplex-only printing mode should one marking station fail, thus improving overall up-time.
