Abstract

In impact printers of the wire matrix type, some adjustment is necessary between the print head and platen spacing to accommodate variable thickness documents. In a point-of-sale terminal printer various documents may be inserted for printing, such as checks, receipts, tickets, coupons, etc. These documents may have many different thicknesses and, for proper printing, must be registered accurately to the point of the print line where the wire matrix print ends will impact with sufficient force.
