Abstract

The figure illustrates an end cross-sectional view of the mechanism comprising a platen and some friction feed wheels for the insertion of a document into an area to be printed by a printing head 1. Drive roller 2 can frictionally engage a document (not shown) between its surface and the surface of the pressure roller 3 to draw a document in along the forms-feeding path 4 indicated so as to position an area of a document adjacent to the tip of the printing head 5 and the surface of a platen 6.
