当需要多个多页组合文档的多个副本时,此问题变得特别明显。 When you need multiple copies of multiple combinations of multi-page documents, this problem becomes particularly evident. 如果用户很难或者不可能打印出期望的组合顺序的页,那么用户通常不得不通过手动方式来组合单个的多页文档副本来完成该处理。 If the user is difficult or impossible to print out the desired combination order page, the user usually has to be manually combined single copy multi-page documents to complete the process. 此处理的复杂程度取决于每个副本中页的数目以及印刷的副本的数目。 This process depends on the complexity of the number of copies and the number of printed pages of each copy.

如果印刷的多页文档要组合,手动组合的必要性阻止了此处理过程的自动进行,因为正确的组合必须发生在整合步骤之前。 If the printing of multi-page document to a combination, a combination of the need to manually do this to prevent the automatic process, because the right combination must occur before the integration step.

本发明的一个目标是提供一个新的打印机以及一种方法用于打印组合的文档。 An object of the present invention is to provide a new printer for printing a document and a method in combination.

各种工作组打印机已经有所描述,它们也作为随身的文档终端,也就是说它们提供一个用户接口,允许选择并打印一个文档而不需要求助于一个工作站,并且特别是,不求助于一个工作站以访问该文档的原始的电子版本。 Various workgroup printers have been described, they carry the terminal as a document, i.e. they provide a user interface allowing selection and print a document without resorting to a workstation, and in particular, without recourse to a workstation to access the original electronic version of the document. 这样的一个工作组打印机的例子在我们早期的申请PCT/AU00/00114中有进一步的描述。 Examples of such a workgroup printers are further described in our earlier application PCT / AU00 / 00114. 以这种方式可以被选择并且打印的文档是以前通过打印机打印过的典型的文档,并且在该过程中存储在打印机内部的硬盘上。 It may be selected in this manner and the print document is the typical document previously printed by the printer, and stored on the internal hard disk of the printer in the process. 要使打印的速度最佳,该文档通常以光栅或部分光栅的格式来存储。 For optimum printing speed, the document is typically part of a raster or raster format to store. 一个用户可以选择把一个文档“打印”该打印机的硬盘,也就是说使随身打印成为可能而实际上没有打印。 A user can select a document to "print" the printer's hard disk, which means that the players are not actually print it possible to print.

一个随身打印机可以利用一个局域网或者广域网上的存储,而不是自身有内部的存储,并且一组这样的打印机可以访问一个共享的文档仓库。 A portable printer can use a local area network or wide area network storage, rather than their own internal storage, and a group of such a printer can access a shared document repository. 一个随身的打印机也可以有简单的到原始文档的记录链接,而不制作副本。 A portable printer may also have a simple link to the original document recording, without making a copy.

一个打印机可以包括一个装订技术,把一个文档的页装订为一个单个的整体。 A printer can include a binding technique, the pages of a document stapled into a single whole. 各种适合于包含一个高速工作组打印机的装订技术,在我们的同时申请PCT/AU00/01456中有进一步的描述。 Binding of various techniques suitable for inclusion in a group of high-speed operation of the printer, while in our application PCT / AU00 / 01456 are further described. 由于一个文档通常应以一个单个文档的形式发送到一个打印机,以产生一个装订副本,文档集成对于装订来说通常是一个前提。 Since typically a document to be transmitted to a printer as a single document, to produce a copy of the binding, the binding is to the document integration is normally a prerequisite. 这对许多用户来说都是一个障碍。 For many users, this is an obstacle.

本发明相关于一个打印机,它在提交一个手动组合的成捆的页时,能够产生一个或者多个装订文档。 The present invention is related to a printer which, when submitted to a combination of a bundle of manual page, or can generate a plurality of binding documents. 该打印机包含了一个代码传感器用于感知页上的机器可读代码,允许它识别并且从该页的电子版产生页的打印的副本。 The printer contains a code sensor for sensing machine-readable codes page, allowing it to identify and produce printed copies of the pages from electronic version of the page. 该打印机还可以选择是否有一个扫描仪,以用于复制没有印代码的页。 The printer can also choose whether there is a scanner for copying pages not printed code.

该复制过程可用于从单面输入产生双面输出。 The replication process may be used to produce double-sided output from single-sided input. 空白页可以散布在输入中,使空白页被强制包含。 Blank pages can be interspersed in the input, so that a blank page is forcibly contained.

如图1中所表示,优选方式的打印机有两个输入托盘,一个用于原件1012,另一个用于输入媒介比如纸的1014片。 Represented in Figure 1, the printer of the preferred embodiment has two input trays, one for the original 1012, the other input media 1014 such as paper. 该纸的路径包括了一个输入的传送机构1022,一个或者多个代码传感器1024,一个或者多个打印头1026,一个输出传送机构1028,以及一个装订机构1030,1032。 The paper path includes an input transport mechanism 1022, one or more code sensors 1024, one or more print heads 1026, an output transport mechanism 1028, and a binding mechanism 1030, 1032. 一个打印控制器1040控制该打印过程。 A print controller 1040 controls the printing process.
