Abstract

To insure uniform density or color of characters printed with a daisy wheel impact printer, it is necessary to conform the curvature of the character face 10 with the curvature of the platen 12 inasmuch as the platen axis and the guide rail 14 are both spacially fixed. Due to manufacturing tolerances and other factors which will result in potential misalignment of the type face 10 with the platen 12, it is desirable to provide an up/down adjustment for the print wheel.
