Abstract

As shown, a paper print media 2 is drawn from a paper roll 3 and driven (by a means not shown) over a suspension plate 4 which is urged by spring 5 to maintain the paper web in contact with the thermal print head 6. The thermal print head 6 presents a linear row of thermal print elements. In addition to the thermal print head 6, the mounting board 7 mounts the attachment electronics 8 on the side opposite the thermal print head.
