1 First Paper Feed Area: Feeds single sheets of paper to the second paper feed area via
the Pickup roller and Stripper pad.

2 Second Paper Feed Area: Controls the vertical print position and feeds paper to the print
area via the Timing and Guide rollers.

3 Press (Printing) Area: Uses the Pressure roller to press paper against the master on the
Drum.
The Drum rotates with the Pressure roller and prints an image on
paper.

4 Paper Ejection Area: Separates a printed paper from the Drum, and transports it onto
the paper receiving tray.

5 Drum Area: Supplies the Drum surface with ink from an Ink cartridge.

6 Master Clamp Area: Clamps the leading edge of the master.

7 Master Disposal Area: Separates used master from the Drum and disposes it into the
Master disposal box.

8 Image Scanning Area: Carries an original and scans it with the Image scanner and
converts the image information into digital data.

9 Master Making Area: Makes a master with the Thermal print head.

10 Master Loading Area: Feeds the prepared master material to the Drum and cuts it to an
appropriate length.

MACHINE SUMMARY
PAPER FEED AND RECEIVING

4. Paper Feed and Receiving

Pickup roller Drum


The Drum is rotated and a sheet of paper is fed
from the first paper feed area to the second paper
feed area by Pickup rollers, and Stripper pad.

Stripper pad

Guide roller
The paper feed to the second paper feed area is
stopped by the Guide and Timing rollers to form a
buckle. The paper then waits until the rotation of the
Timing roller Guide roller starts.

The Guide and Timing rollers in the second paper


feed area are rotated and the paper is fed to the
Pressure roller printing area.

While the paper is being fed from the second paper


feed area, the Pressure roller rises and printing
starts.
Separation fan
(The Pressure roller contacts the Drum and starts
rotating.)
Separator

After the Pressure roller contacts the Drum to start


printing, the Separator approaches the Drum and
the Separation fan starts to blow.
The Guide roller goes up to release the paper.
(The paper is then transferred by the rotation of the
Drum.)

Transfer belt The printed paper is separated from the Drum by


the Separator and with a help of the air blow from
the Separation fan.
It is then transported onto the Paper receiving tray
by the Transfer belts using Suction fan.

The Timing roller contacts the Guide roller to feed


the next sheet of paper.

Master Making
The Image scanner scans the image on
the original and Thermal print head (TPH)
makes the image on the master material.
The Master tension plate drops down and
applies tension on the master material.

Master Loading
The master is transferred onto the Drum
and the leading edge is clamped by the
Clamp plate.

The Drum rotates to wrap the master on


the Drum.
