Abstract

Print hammers of a daisy wheel printer are located in areas which are readily accessible by operators. This is due to structural limitations coupled with a requirement for operator writing line visibility. As such, it is desirable to maintain a print hammer at a reasonable temperature in order to reduce risks in the event of operator contact.
