Abstract

Where continuous forms or web media is to be printed upon in a serial or line printer environment, it is necessary to compact or compress the form to hold it in tight conformance with the drum platen. This allows lower print forces to be used and improves the form registration where multiple part forms are used. Also, the acoustical performance is improved since there is lower paper noise where the paper is in tight conformance with the drum platen.
