Abstract

30 CPS printers require tilt selection of the typehead in approximately half the time allotted in existing 15 CPS printers. At 30 CPS, existing tilt selection mechanisms experience a fourfold increase in component loading. Mechanism considerations including excessive stress levels. wear, dynamic response and torque requirements prohibit this approach.
