Cut Form Handling Device for use in a Printer
This cut-form handling device for use in a printer permits the reduction of an
unprintable area at the top edge of a cut form.
As shown in Fig. 1, an exemplary device includes a platen 1, a rear insertion
form guide 2, a clamp plate 3, which is across the platen surface and fixed at its
ends on the clamp brackets 4, being pivotally mounted on the side planes of the
platen, and guide plate 5 having small diameter roller 6 forced by spring action of
the guide plate toward the surface of the platen.
The clamp plate 3 will clamp the top edge of the cut form, which is inserted
from the rear of the platen along the rear insertion form guide 2 with top edge
At the time that no cut form exists in a predetermined clamping position on
the platen, a clamp release cam 7 pushes the lower end of the clamp bracket
such that it swings around a pivot 8 and the clamp opens.
When a photosensor 9 detects that the top edge of the cut form has been
received at the clamping position between the platen and the opened clamp
plate, a magnetic solenoid (not shown) is de-energized and the clamp release
cam 7 is withdrawn from engaging relation with the clamp bracket 4. Thus, the
clamp plate 3 clamps the top edge of the cut form.
Thereafter, the platen is rotated clockwise. The clamped cut form is
advanced with the platen, and the clamped top edge of the cut form is advanced
across the print position.
