Description

具有支撑纸张的压印平板和可动支撑部的喷墨记录装置 An ink jet paper having a support platen and a movable portion supporting a recording apparatus

技术领域 FIELD

本发明涉及通过从记录头喷出墨滴而在记录纸上记录图像的喷墨记录装置,详细的说,涉及在压印平板上设有可动支撑部的喷墨记录装置。 The present invention relates to an ink jet recording apparatus records an image on paper by ejecting ink droplets from the recording head and the recording, detail, relates to an ink jet recording apparatus provided with a movable portion supported on the platen.

背景技术 Background technique

喷墨记录装置,具有并列设有多个喷嘴的记录头。 An ink jet recording apparatus having a recording head provided with a plurality of nozzles in parallel. 记录图像的记录纸被输送到该记录头的下方。 Recording an image recording sheet is conveyed to below the recording head. 记录头向主扫描方向(与记录纸的输送方向垂直的方向)移动,并在预定的时序从上述喷嘴喷出墨滴,由此,在该记录纸上记录图像。 Moving the recording head in the main scanning direction (direction perpendicular to the conveying direction of the recording paper), and ink droplets are ejected from the nozzle at a predetermined timing, thereby recording an image on the recording paper. 近年来的喷墨记录装置,具有例如如照相印刷那样在记录纸上记录图像的功能。 In recent years, ink jet recording apparatus, for example, as having a photographic printing paper as a recording function of recording the image. 这种图像记录,不在记录纸的边缘设置空白而进行,被称为所谓“无边记录”。 Such an image recording, the recording edge of the paper is not set for the blank, a so-called "borderless recording."

进行无边记录时,记录头超越记录纸的边缘直到该记录纸的外侧为止喷出墨水。 When borderless recording, the recording head until beyond the outer edge of the recording sheet of the recording paper until the ink is ejected. 例如,在记录纸前端及后端的无边记录中,将该记录纸相对于该记录头进行定位以使上述多个喷嘴中的一部分被配置在该记录纸边缘的外侧,从而从该喷嘴向配置于该记录纸下方的压印平板上喷出墨滴。 For example, in the borderless recording sheet in the front and rear ends, the recording sheet with respect to the recording head is positioned so that a portion of the plurality of nozzles are disposed on the outer side edge of the recording paper, so that the nozzles arranged in the ejecting ink droplets on the lower platen of the recording paper. 该压印平板,在其上部设有向主扫描方向延伸的沟槽,在该沟槽的内部具有墨水吸收部件。 The platen, in its upper portion provided with a groove extending in the main scanning direction, an ink absorbing member inside the trench. 因此,墨滴由上述墨水吸收部件吸收。 Accordingly, ink droplets are absorbed by the ink absorbing member. 因此,在该记录纸整体上记录图像而不会在记录纸的边缘产生空白,并且不会因喷出到压印平板上的墨水弄脏该记录纸的反面(例如参照专利文献1)。 Thus, the whole image is recorded on the recording sheet without a blank in the edge of the recording sheet, and will not discharge the ink on the reverse side soiling the platen of the recording paper (for example, see Patent Document 1).

此外,近年来,对喷墨记录装置要求图像记录的高速化。 Further, in recent years, the ink jet recording apparatus according to the image recording speed. 为了实现图像记录的高速化,在现有技术中就需要实现记录头的大型化。 In order to achieve high-speed image recording, it is necessary in the prior art to achieve the size of the recording head. 这是因为,在记录头大型化后,在记录纸的输送方向上排列的喷嘴数增加,可以进行高速记录。 This is because, after the size of the recording head, the number of nozzles arranged in the conveying direction of the recording sheet increases, high-speed recording can be performed. 但是为了良好地进行上述无边记录,伴随记录头的大型化必须将设于压印平板上的沟槽的宽度尺寸(记录纸的输送方向的尺寸)设定得较大。 But in order to satisfactorily perform the borderless recording, upsizing in accordance with the recording head it must be provided in the width dimension of the groove on the platen (recording sheet conveyance direction dimension) is set to be large.

而在进行上述无边记录时,记录纸被配置在设于压印平板中的沟槽上,因此该沟槽宽度变大后,该记录纸以垂直向下弯曲而落到该沟槽内的方式变形。 And carrying out the endless recording, the recording sheet is disposed in a groove provided in the upper platen, so that the groove width becomes large, the recording sheet is bent downwardly in a vertical manner falls within the groove deformation. 记录纸这样弯曲后,记录头的喷嘴和该记录纸的表面的距离变化,可能会产生记录不良。 After the recording sheet is bent such, variations from the surface of the nozzles of the recording head and the recording paper, a recording failure may occur.

为了解决这种问题,以往,在上述压印平板的沟槽内设有纸张支撑装置,该纸张支撑装置跟随记录纸的输送而转动。 To solve this problem, conventionally, in the trench above the platen are equipped with sheet supporting means, the sheet supporting means feeds the recording paper to follow the rotated. 由此,纸张支撑部件支撑向上述沟槽上进入的记录纸,支撑该记录纸的部位,沿上述沟槽的宽度方向移动。 Thus, the support member supporting the sheet into the groove of said recording paper, the recording paper supporting portion, movement in the width direction of the groove. 因此,该记录纸,即使在上述压印平板的沟槽上输送时,也由上述纸张支撑部件支撑(例如参照专利文献2、专利文献3)。 Accordingly, the recording paper even when conveyed on the platen above the trench, and also supported by the sheet supporting member (for example, see Patent Document 2, Patent Document 3).

专利文献1:特开2000-118058号公报专利文献2:特开2001-80145号公报专利文献3:特开2002-307769号公报但是,现有的纸张支撑部件,以预定的转动中心轴为中心进行转动(参照上述专利文献2),所以纸张支撑部件的前端部(与记录纸接触的部分)向记录头侧接近后分离。 Patent Document 1: Laid-Open Publication No. 2000-118058 Patent Document 2: Laid-Open Publication No. 2001-80145 Patent Document 3: Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2002-307769 However, the conventional sheet supporting member, at a predetermined rotation center axis rotate (see Patent Document 2), the separating distal end portion closer to the head side of the sheet supporting member (portion in contact with the recording paper) to the recording. 因此,记录纸不总是被支撑为与记录头平行。 Accordingly, the recording sheet is not always supported in parallel with the recording head. 为了解决该问题,可将纸张支撑部件的旋转半径设定得足够大,但是这样就会产生喷墨记录装置大型化的新问题。 To solve this problem, the rotation radius of the sheet supporting member is set sufficiently large, but this will lead to a new problem of the ink jet recording apparatus size. 此外,纸张支撑部件支撑记录纸的面被形成为以上述转动中心轴为中心的圆弧状,而这使得支撑记录纸的点固定,无法总是支撑输送来的记录纸的端部。 Further, the sheet support member for supporting the recording paper surface is formed at the end portion of the rotation central axis of the circular arc shape, and this makes the support point of the recording paper is fixed and can not always support the conveyed recording paper. 即,如此将支撑记录纸的面形成为圆环状后,记录纸仅在上述支撑点被支撑,该支撑点以外的部位(该支撑点前后的区域)弯曲,其结果,有可能和上述同样产生记录不良。 That is, after such a recording paper supporting surface in an annular shape is formed, the recording sheet is supported only in the support points above, parts (the supporting point of the front and rear regions) other than the curved support points, as a result, it is possible as described above, and produce bad record.

此外,在喷墨记录装置中,为了鲜明地记录图像,输送来的记录纸和上述喷嘴的相对位置关系、特别是记录纸和喷嘴的距离非常重要。 Further, in the ink jet recording apparatus, in order to clearly image recording, the recording sheet conveyed to the relative positional relationship between the nozzle and, in particular, recording paper and the distance from the nozzle is very important. 为了将该距离维持恒定,需要防止输送来的记录纸从压印平板浮起。 In order to maintain constant the distance necessary to prevent the recording sheet conveyed from the floating platen. 该记录纸浮起的原因主要是输送来的记录纸的初始变形(折曲等),还要考虑记录中记录纸的起波现象。 The reason for this is mainly lifted recording sheet conveyed recording sheet initial deformation (bending, etc.), but also consider the phenomenon of waves from the recording sheet in the recording. 为了将记录纸和喷嘴的距离限制在一定范围内,考虑在压印平板上设置用于抑制记录纸的浮起的导向部件。 The distance to the recording sheet and the nozzle is limited within a certain range, considering the guide member is provided for suppressing the floating of the recording paper on the platen.

而近年来的喷墨记录装置具有例如如照相印刷那样记录图像的功能。 In recent years, the ink jet recording apparatus having the above photographic printing, for example, as an image recording function. 这种图像记录并未在记录纸的边缘设置空白,被称为“无边记录”。 Such an image is not recorded is provided at the edge of the blank recording paper, called "infinity record." 此外,相对于该无边记录,设有空白的记录被称为“有边记录”。 Further, with respect to the endless recording with blank record it is referred to as "edged record." 进行有边记录时,一般多使用A4尺寸的普通纸或再生纸等尺寸较大的薄纸,因此,记录中记录纸容易变形。 When recording edged, more generally A4 size larger size like plain paper or recycled paper tissue, thus recording the recording sheet is easily deformed. 因此,进行有边记录时,通过设置上述导向部件来防止记录纸的大的变形。 Therefore, when the recording side, a large deformation of the guide member by providing the recording sheet is prevented. 其结果,记录纸不会产生因与记录头的干扰而产生的污染以及所谓的卡纸等,实现了鲜明的有边记录。 As a result, the recording sheet does not occur due to the interference of the recording head and the pollution generated by a so-called paper jam, to achieve a sharp edged recording.

而进行无边记录时,记录头越过记录纸的边缘直到该记录纸的外侧为止喷出墨水。 When the borderless recording, the recording head over the edge of the recording paper until the outside of the recording paper until the ink is ejected. 因此,进行无边记录时,在上述压印平板上配置有上述导向部件的话,会妨碍鲜明的无边记录。 Thus, when recording borderless disposed on the platen, then there is the guide member, will prevent sharp marginal printing. 即,为了实现鲜明的有边记录,应该在压印平板上配置用于限制记录纸从压印平板的浮起、并将记录纸和记录头间的距离维持在一定范围内的导向部件,但在进行无边记录时,该导向部件可能会挡住从记录头向记录纸喷出的墨滴,具有难于进行鲜明的无边记录的问题。 That is, in order to achieve sharp edged recording, the recording sheet should be configured to limit lifted from the platen, and the distance between the recording head and the recording paper guide member is maintained within a certain range on the platen, but during borderless recording, the guide member may be blocked from the recording head ejected ink droplets to the recording paper, has a problem difficult to perform borderless recording sharp. 另一方面,进行无边记录时,一般多使用照相用光泽纸等厚纸,在记录中难以引起记录纸的变形。 On the other hand, when recording borderless, and more generally using a camera with a thick paper such as glossy paper, the recording paper hardly causes deformation of the recording. 因此,进行无边记录时,上述导向部件的必要性较低。 Thus, when borderless recording, the necessity of the guide member lower.

发明内容 SUMMARY

本发明的第一目的在于提供一种喷墨记录装置,其可通过在压印平板上切实地支撑输送来的记录纸的端部,而高速地进行良好的无边记录。 The first object of the present invention is to provide an ink jet recording apparatus, by which the end portion of the recording paper on the platen conveyed reliably supported, and good high speed recording infinity. 本发明的第二目的在于提供一种喷墨记录装置,其可进行有边记录,且在进行无边记录时不会挡住向记录纸的边缘喷出的墨滴而可以进行鲜明的图像记录。 The second object of the present invention is to provide an ink jet recording apparatus, which may be edged recording, and does not block the edge of the recording sheet ejected ink droplets sharp image can be recorded during recording infinity.

按照本发明,提供喷墨记录装置,具有:支撑记录纸的压印平板;记录头,与压印平板相向配置,通过喷出墨滴而在输送到压印平板上的记录纸上记录图像;和可动支撑部,跟随上述输送来的记录纸,在支撑该记录纸的同时在压印平板上向该输送方向滑动移动。 According to the present invention, there is provided an ink jet recording apparatus, comprising: a platen supporting a recording sheet; recording head and the platen arranged opposite, by ejecting ink droplets onto a recording sheet conveyed on the platen of the image recording; and a movable support portion, following the above-described recording sheet is conveyed, while supporting the recording sheet to the conveying direction sliding movement on the platen.

输送到压印平板上的记录纸由该压印平板支撑。 The recording sheet conveyed to the platen supported by the platen. 与压印平板相向地配置记录头,该记录头向主扫描方向移动的同时喷出墨滴。 And platen arranged opposed to the recording head, the recording head is moved in the main scanning direction while ejecting ink droplets. 由此,在该记录纸上记录图像。 Thus, an image is recorded on the recording paper. 输送到压印平板上的记录纸进一步向输送方向进行输送,而此时,可动支撑部支撑着该记录纸向该输送方向滑动。 The recording sheet conveyed to the platen is further conveyed in the conveying direction, but this time, the movable supporting portion supporting the recording sheet to the conveying direction of the slide. 即,该记录纸的端部总是由可动支撑部支撑,所以不会相对于该输送方向弯曲。 That is, the end portion of the recording paper is always supported by a movable support portion, so it will not bend with respect to the conveying direction. 其结果,该记录纸和记录头的距离保持恒定。 As a result, the recording sheet and the recording head distance is kept constant.

进而,该记录纸在压印平板上输送时,可动支撑部支撑该记录纸,因此即使第一纸张支撑部和第二纸张支撑部间形成宽度很大的沟槽,该记录纸也不会弯曲而进入到该沟槽内,从而该记录纸和记录头的距离保持恒定,实现了高画质印刷。 Further, when the recording sheet conveyed on the platen, the movable support portion for supporting the recording sheet, so even if the first sheet between the second sheet supporting portion and supporting portion formed large trench width, the recording sheet is not bent into within the trench, so that the recording sheet and the recording head distance is kept constant, high image quality printing. 这样,上述沟槽宽度被设定得较大,因此即使记录头大型化,上述沟槽也可覆盖该记录头的喷墨区域整体,其结果,还实现了无边记录的高速化。 Thus, the groove width is set to be large, even if the size of the recording head, the groove may cover the entire area of ​​the ink jet recording head, as a result, is also achieved high speed recording infinity.

上述压印平板,具有:框架,具有沿着上述输送方向延伸的上表面;第一纸张支撑部,突出设置在上述上表面的上述输送方向上游侧;和第二纸张支撑部,突出设置在上述上表面的上述输送方向下游侧,以在其与上述第一纸张支撑部之间形成向上述主扫描方向延伸的沟槽。 Above the platen, comprising: a frame having an upper surface extending along the conveying direction; at the upstream side of the upper surface of the first sheet conveying direction of the support portion, provided projecting; and a second sheet supporting portion, provided on the protrusion downstream-side upper surface of the conveying direction to form between it and said first sheet support groove portion extending in the main scanning direction. 此外,上述可动支撑部设置为,可跟随向上述输送方向输送的记录纸,在与上述第一纸张支撑部相邻的位置和与上述第二纸张支撑部相邻的位置之间沿着上述输送方向滑动。 Further, the movable support portion is set to be delivered to follow the conveying direction of the recording sheet between the first sheet and the supporting portion and a position adjacent to the second sheet supporting portion adjacent to a position along the the conveying direction of the slide.

此时,输送到压印平板上的记录纸首先由第一纸张支撑部支撑。 At this time, the recording sheet conveyed to the first platen supported by the first sheet support portion. 进而,该记录纸在第一纸张支撑部上输送并输送到第二纸张支撑部侧。 Further, the recording sheet conveyed and transported to a second side of the sheet supporting portion of the first sheet on the support portion. 在第一纸张支撑部和第二纸张支撑部间形成沟槽。 A trench formed between the first sheet and the second sheet supporting portion supporting portion. 该沟槽被形成在比第一纸张支撑部和第二纸张支撑部低的位置。 The grooves are formed in the lower portion than the first sheet and the second sheet supporting portion supporting position. 因此,特别在进行无边记录时,可越过该记录纸的边缘从记录头喷出墨滴。 Thus, especially when performing borderless recording, it may be beyond the edge of the recording paper is ejecting ink droplets from the recording head. 越过该记录纸的边缘喷出的墨滴由上述沟槽接住。 Past the edge of the recording paper is ejecting ink droplets caught by the groove. 因此,可在该沟槽的底部铺设墨水吸收部件(典型的是片状的海绵)。 Thus, the ink can be laid at the bottom of the trench absorbing member (typically a sheet of sponge). 在上述第一纸张支撑部上输送的记录纸的端部通过上述沟槽的上方。 An end portion of the recording sheet conveyed on the sheet supporting portion above the first through groove. 此时,可动支撑部跟随输送来的记录纸向上述输送方向滑动。 At this time, the movable supporting portion slides toward the conveying direction of the recording sheet conveyed to follow. 即,可动支撑部从在主扫描方向上与第一纸张支撑部相邻的位置向在主扫描方向上与第二纸张支撑部相邻的位置滑动,同时支撑上述输送来的记录纸。 That is, the movable supporting portion slides in the main scanning direction from adjacent the first sheet position to the supporting portion in the main scanning direction and a second position adjacent the sheet supporting portion while supporting the conveyed recording sheet. 因此,该记录纸的端部,总是由可动支撑部支撑,不会进入上述沟槽内。 Thus, the end portion of the recording paper, always supported by the movable support portion, not caught in the groove. 其结果,该记录纸和记录头的距离保持恒定。 As a result, the recording sheet and the recording head distance is kept constant.

上述第一纸张支撑部可以具有多个第一固定肋,上述第一固定肋,突出设置在上述上表面的上述输送方向上游侧部分,且在上述主扫描方向上并列设置,上述第二纸张支撑部可以具有多个第二固定肋,所述第二固定肋突出设置在上述上表面的上述输送方向下游侧部分,且在上述主扫描方向上并列设置。 Said first sheet supporting portion may have a first plurality of fixing ribs, the first fixing rib provided in a protruding portion of the upstream side of the conveying direction of the upper surface and juxtaposed in the main scanning direction, said second sheet supporting a second fixing portion may have a plurality of ribs, the second fixing rib projecting portion disposed at a downstream side of the upper surface of the conveying direction and juxtaposed in the main scanning direction. 上述可动支撑部可以具有多个可动肋,所述可动肋可以在第一位置第二位置之间滑动,所述第一位置位于在上述主扫描方向上相邻的各第一固定肋之间,所述第二位置位于在上述主扫描方向上相邻的各第二固定肋之间。 The movable supporting portion may have a plurality of movable ribs, the ribs can be slidably movable between a first position to the second position, each of the first fixing rib on the said first location is adjacent to the main scanning direction between the second position in the main scanning direction adjacent to each of the second fixing rib. 可动肋是沿输送方向延伸的肋,其形状可为三角形状等。 The movable rib is a rib extending in the conveying direction, the shape may be a triangular shape. 这样,第一纸张支撑部、第二纸张支撑部、以及可动支撑部由肋构成,从而记录纸和第一纸张支撑部、第二纸张支撑部、以及可动支撑部的接触面积较小,所以可顺畅地输送该记录纸。 Thus, the first sheet supporting portion, a second sheet support portion, and a movable support portion is constituted by the ribs, so that the recording paper supporting portion and a first sheet, a second sheet supporting portion, a small contact surface and a movable support portion, it is possible to smoothly convey the recording sheet. 并且,第一纸张支撑部、第二纸张支撑部、以及可动支撑部的结构极为简单。 Further, the first sheet supporting portion, a second sheet supporting portion, the supporting portion and the movable structure is extremely simple.

上述沟槽的宽度可被设定为比上述记录头的喷墨区域大。 The width of the groove may be set to be larger than the area of ​​the ink jet recording head. 另外,该“沟槽的宽度”是记录纸的输送方向的宽度,是与主扫描方向垂直的方向(副扫描)上的宽度。 In addition, the "groove width" is the width of the recording sheet feeding direction, the width direction (sub-scanning) perpendicular to the main scanning direction. 由此,在记录纸未被配置在压印平板上时,即使从记录头的所有喷嘴喷出墨滴,该喷出的所有墨滴也会喷到上述沟槽的底面上。 Accordingly, when the recording sheet is not disposed on the platen, even if the ink droplets are ejected from all the nozzles of the recording head, all the ink droplets ejected is also sprayed onto the bottom surface of the groove. 因此,进行无边记录时,可以不对记录头进行复杂的控制,从该记录头的所有喷嘴喷出墨滴而在记录纸的端部进行图像记录。 Thus, when borderless recording, the recording head may not be complicated control, ink droplets are ejected from all the nozzles of the recording head to perform image recording at the end of the recording sheet. 换言之,如果上述沟槽的宽度比上述记录头的喷墨区域窄,则在记录纸的前端进行无边记录时,必须仅从记录头的上游侧的喷嘴喷出墨滴,伴随该记录纸的输送而依次从下游侧的喷嘴喷出墨滴,需要对记录头进行复杂的控制,但在本发明中,无需这种复杂的控制,如上上述,可通过从所有的喷嘴喷出墨滴来对记录纸的端部进行图像记录。 In other words, if the width of the groove is narrower than the ink ejection area of ​​the recording head, the leading end of the recording sheet marginal printing, it is necessary only from the upstream side of the nozzle of the recording head ejecting ink droplets, the recording sheet is conveyed along sequentially ejected from the nozzles on the downstream side of the ink droplets, the need for complicated control of the recording head, but in the present invention, without such a complicated control, as described above, by ejecting ink droplets from all the nozzles of the recording an end portion of an image recording sheet. 即,关于从喷嘴喷出墨滴不用进行复杂的控制,可高速进行无边记录。 That is, the ink droplets are ejected from the nozzle without performing complicated control for high-speed recording infinity. 进而,有时上述喷嘴的剖面形状未必是正圆、并且可能在喷嘴表面附着有微细的灰尘,因此墨滴有时不是从喷嘴向正下方喷出而是向稍微倾斜的方向喷出。 Further, a sectional shape of the nozzle may not necessarily a perfect circle, and a fine dust may adhere to the nozzle surface, the ink droplets are ejected from the nozzle may not directly downward but slightly inclined in the direction of ejection. 这种情况下,由于上述沟槽的宽度被设定得比记录头的喷墨区域大,因此墨滴不会附着到沟槽的外部。 In this case, since the width of the groove is set larger than the area of ​​the ink jet recording head, and therefore ink droplets it does not adhere to the outside of the trench. 其结果,防止了记录纸的反面被墨水弄污。 As a result, it prevents the reverse side of the recording paper with ink soiled.

可对上述可动支撑部的上述输送方向上游侧角部进行倒角加工。 It may be chamfered to the conveying direction upstream side corner portion of the movable support portion. 在该构成中,即使在通过了第一纸张支撑部的记录纸的端部与可动支撑部的输送方向上游侧角部抵接时,也可由可动支撑部的上表面顺畅地引导该记录纸的端部。 In this configuration, even when passing through the upstream end portion of the recording sheet conveyance direction of the first sheet and the supporting portion supporting the movable portion side corner portion comes into contact, but also by the upper surface of the movable support portion smoothly guide the recording ends of the papers. 因此,不会因为设置可动支撑部而妨碍记录纸的顺畅的输送。 Thus, not because the movable support portion can be provided hinder smooth conveyance of the recording sheet.

设有可动肋驱动机构,其在上述记录纸被输送到上述框架的上述输送方向上游侧端部时,将上述可动肋配置在上述第一位置,并使上述可动肋伴随上述记录纸的输送,以支撑着该记录纸的端部的状态向上述输送方向滑动。 A drive mechanism provided with a movable rib, which, when the upstream-side end portion of the conveyance direction of the recording sheet is conveyed to the frame of the movable rib disposed at the first position, and movable along the recording sheet ribs delivery, the state to support the end portion of the recording sheet to the conveying direction of the slide. 通过设置该可动肋驱动机构,在记录纸被输送到压印平板上时,可动肋暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上该记录纸,并伴随该记录纸的输送、支撑着该记录纸的端部向该输送方向下游侧滑动。 Passes through the movable driving mechanism ribs, is conveyed onto the platen in the recording sheet is provided, the movable ribs temporarily went to the upstream side of the recording paper conveying direction, accompanied by the conveying of the recording paper, the recording paper supporting to the downstream end of the conveying direction of the slide. 由此,该记录纸的端部总是由可动支撑部支撑,不会进入上述沟槽内。 Thus, the end portion of the recording paper is always supported by a movable support portion, not caught in the groove. 其结果,该记录纸和记录头的距离切实地保持恒定。 As a result, the recording sheet and the recording head distance reliably kept constant.

上述可动肋驱动机构具有:输入部件,在上述记录头的作用下向上述主扫描方向滑动;旋转板,可旋转地支撑在设于上述框架上的预定的摆动中心轴上,并根据上述输入部件的滑动向预定方向旋转;和摆动部件,其中央部可摆动地支撑在设于上述框架上的预定的旋转中心轴上,并且其基端部与设于上述旋转板上的扣合部扣合,其前端部根据该旋转板的旋转,以上述摆动中心轴为中心,在平行于上述上表面的假想面上沿上述输送方向移动,上述可动支撑部可以安装于上述摆动部件的前端部。 The movable rib driving mechanism comprising: an input member, is slid to the main scanning direction by the recording head; rotating plate rotatably supported in a predetermined pivot provided on the center axis of the frame, and in accordance with the input the slide member rotates in the predetermined direction; and a swing member, a central portion disposed swingably supported on said frame a predetermined rotation center axis and a proximal end portion engaging portion provided on the rotary plate buckle together, the front end portion according to the rotation of the rotating plate to the swing central axis, movable in an imaginary plane parallel to the upper surface along the conveyance direction, and the movable support portion can be attached to the front end portion of the swing member . 上述记录头沿主扫描方向往复运动,伴随该记录头的运动,输入部件沿主扫描方向位移。 The recording head reciprocates in the main scanning direction, accompanying the movement of the recording head, the displacement of the input member in the main scanning direction. 具体地说,例如记录头每往复运动一次,该记录头推压上述输入部件,从而该输入部件滑动。 Specifically, for example every one reciprocation of the recording head, the recording head pushes the input member, such that sliding of the input member. 该输入部件滑动时,旋转板向预定方向旋转。 When the sliding of the input member, the rotating plate rotates in the predetermined direction. 摆动部件的中央部,经由摆动中心轴设在上述框架上,摆动部件的基端部与设于旋转板上的扣合部扣合,所以伴随旋转板的旋转,该摆动部件以上述摆动中心轴为中心摆动。 The central portion of the swing member via the swing shaft disposed on said frame, a base end portion of the swing member is provided in the engaging portion and the engaging rotating plate, so that with the rotation of the rotating plate, the swing of the swinging member to the central axis swings. 在该摆动部件的前端部安装上述可动肋,所以伴随摆动部件的摆动该可动肋向上述输送方向滑动。 Tip portion of the pivot member is mounted movable rib, so slid along the conveying direction of the movable pivot member pivot rib.

还可具有:旋转限制部件,限制上述旋转板向与预定方向相反的方向旋转,并且通过使上述输入部件滑动到预定的限制解除位置,来解除该限制;和弹簧部件,安装于上述旋转板上,与该旋转板向上述预定方向的旋转角度对应地蓄积变形能。 Further comprising: a rotation restricting member to restrict the rotation plate is rotated in the direction opposite to the predetermined direction, and by making the input member is slid to a predetermined limit release position to release the restriction; and a spring member mounted on the rotating plate is accumulated in correspondence with the rotation angle of the rotary plate toward the predetermined direction deformability. 此时,上述输入部件和旋转限制部件,构成仅使旋转板向上述预定方向旋转而限制其向反方向旋转的棘轮机构。 In this case, the input member and the rotation restriction member, constituting only the rotary plate toward the predetermined direction ratchet mechanism to limit rotation in the opposite direction. 因此,每当记录头往复运动时,旋转板向预定方向旋转,并且上述弹簧部件变形,蓄积变形能。 Thus, every time the recording head is reciprocated, the rotating plate rotates in the predetermined direction, and the spring member is deformed, the deformation energy accumulated. 根据上述记录头的滑动、上述输入部件滑动到预定的限制解除位置时,解除上述旋转板的旋转限制,容许旋转板的自由旋转。 The sliding of the recording head, the input member is slid to a position releasing the predetermined limit, to limit the rotation of the rotating plate is released, allowing the free rotation of the rotating plate. 即,解除上述旋转板的旋转限制,释放上述弹簧部件中蓄积的变形能,因此该旋转板向预定方向的反方向旋转。 I.e., releasing the rotation restriction of the rotating plate, the spring member to release the deformation energy accumulated, so that the rotating plate is rotated in the opposite direction to the predetermined direction.

具体地说,上述可动肋通常被配置在例如上述第一固定肋和第二固定肋之间(上述沟槽的中央部),其后,对应于记录头的往复运动而沿上述输送方向滑动。 Specifically, the movable ribs are typically disposed between the first fixed ribs, for example, and the second fixing rib (the central portion of the groove), and thereafter, the recording head corresponding to a reciprocal movement along the conveying direction and slide . 而如上上述通过解除上述旋转板的旋转限制,可动肋再次被配置在上述第一固定肋和第二固定肋之间。 As described above by releasing the rotation restriction of the rotating plate, the movable ribs is again disposed between the first fixing rib and second fixing rib. 此外,这样在平时将可动肋配置在上述第一固定肋和第二固定肋之间,所以在不进行上述无边记录时,该可动肋可被固定在该第一固定肋和第二固定肋间的位置上。 Further, so usually when the movable ribs disposed between the first fixing rib and second fixing rib, so that the above-described endless recording is not performed, the movable rib may be fixed to the first and second fixing rib secured position on the intercostal.

本发明的喷墨记录装置可具有可动支撑部驱动部件。 The inkjet recording apparatus of the present invention may have a movable support of the drive member. 可动支撑部驱动部件,使支撑被记录介质的可动支撑部跟随该被记录介质向输送方向滑动,该被记录介质在配置于向主扫描方向往复运动的记录头的下方的压印平板上向垂直于主扫描方向的输送方向输送。 A drive member movable support portion, the support being movable support portion of the recording medium to follow the recording medium slides in the feeding direction, the recording medium is disposed below the platen to reciprocate in the main scanning direction of the recording head in conveying to the conveying direction perpendicular to the main scanning direction. 该可动支撑部驱动部件可具有:旋转板部,可旋转地支撑在预定的旋转中心轴上,且与设于上述可动支撑部上的扣合部扣合;和导向槽,设于该旋转板部上的与上述可动支撑部的扣合部扣合的扣合面上,通过该旋转板部以上述旋转中心轴为旋转中心旋转,而在上述压印平板的上述输送方向上游侧端部和上述输送方向下游侧端部之间沿着该输送方向引导上述可动支撑部的扣合部。 The movable support member may have a driving part: a rotary plate portion, rotatably supported at a predetermined rotation center axis, and is provided with the movable engaging portion engaging the supporting portions; and a guide groove provided in the on the rotating portion of the movable plate engaging surface of the engaging portion of the engaging support portion, it is rotated by the rotary plate portion at the rotation center axis as a rotation center, and the upstream side of the platen in the transport direction between the end and the downstream end of the conveyance direction of the guide engaging portion of the movable supporting portion along the conveying direction.

输送到压印平板上的被记录介质(典型的为记录纸),由该压印平板支撑并向输送方向输送。 Delivered to the recording medium (typically, recording paper) on the platen by the platen to the support conveying direction. 配置在压印平板上方的记录头,向主扫描方向滑动并喷出墨滴,从而在该被记录介质上记录图像。 Platen disposed above the recording head, ink droplets are ejected by sliding the main scanning direction, thereby recording an image on the recording medium. 此时,可动支撑部驱动部件可以上述旋转中心轴为中心旋转驱动。 At this time, the movable portion support member may drive the rotation drive central axis of rotation.

可动支撑部的扣合部与形成在上述旋转板部的扣合面上的导向槽扣合,因此伴随可动支撑部驱动部件的旋转,上述旋转板部旋转时,可动支撑部的扣合部在上述压印平板的上述输送方向上游侧端部和上述输送方向下游侧端部之间沿该输送方向顺畅地移动。 Engaging portion and the movable support portion is formed in the guide groove engaging surface of the engaging portion of the rotating plate, so along with rotation of the movable support of the drive member, when rotating the rotary plate portion, the movable portion of the support clasp engagement portion between the conveying direction upstream side end portion of the platen and the downstream end of the conveying direction is smoothly moved in the conveying direction. 即,可动支撑部跟随该输送来的被记录介质向该输送方向滑动,因此,该被记录介质的端部,总是由可动支撑部支撑。 That is, the movable supporting portion following the recording medium is conveyed to the conveying direction of the slide, so that the end portion of the recording medium, is always supported by the movable support portion. 其结果,上述被记录介质和记录头的距离保持恒定,即使进行无边记录时也可实现高画质记录。 As a result, the above-described recording medium and the recording head to maintain a constant distance, high image quality recording can be performed even when recording infinity.

另外,上述旋转中心轴,可被配置为向与上述主扫描方向及上述输送方向双方垂直的方向延伸。 Further, the rotation center axis, may be configured to extend in a direction perpendicular to the main scanning direction and the conveying direction on both sides. 此时,该旋转中心轴被配置在与上述压印平板的放置被记录介质的面垂直的方向上,因此,构成可动支撑部驱动部件的旋转板部,可在被配置为与压印平板的支撑上述被记录介质的面平行的状态下旋转。 At this time, the rotation center axis is arranged in a direction above the platen is disposed perpendicular to the recording surface of the medium, and therefore, rotation of the movable plate portion constituting the supporting portion of the drive member, may be configured to communicate with the platen the above-described support is rotated in a state parallel to the plane of the recording medium. 由此,具有该旋转板部的可动支撑部驱动部件可紧凑地配置在压印平板的周边。 Accordingly, the movable support portion of the rotary plate portion having a driving member may be compactly disposed in the periphery of the platen.

上述可动支撑部可由用于将位于上述压印平板上的被记录介质向上述输送方向输送的马达驱动。 The movable supporting part may be positioned for the recording medium on the platen to the conveying direction of the conveying motor. 在该构成中,上述被记录介质由上述马达向输送方向输送。 In this configuration, the recording medium is conveyed in the conveying direction by the motor. 此时,由该马达的作用,上述可动支撑部驱动部件以上述旋转中心轴为中心被旋转驱动。 At this time, by the action of the motor, the movable portion support member so as to drive the rotation central axis is driven to rotate. 这样,可动支撑部驱动部件将用于输送位于压印平板上的被记录介质的马达作为驱动源被驱动,因此上述旋转板部的旋转顺畅,从而实现了上述可动支撑部的顺畅的滑动移动。 Thus, the movable recording medium of the motor is positioned on the platen transport means for driving the support portion is driven as a driving source, and therefore smooth rotation of the rotary plate portion, thereby achieving a smooth sliding of the movable support portion mobile.

上述旋转板部可被形成为由上述旋转中心轴贯通其中心的圆盘状。 The rotation plate may be formed in a disk-shaped portion by the rotation center axis of the through its center. 通过将旋转板部形成为圆盘状,可使得可动支撑部驱动部件的结构简单,并且实现用于驱动该可动支撑部驱动部件的机构的紧凑化设计。 By rotating the plate portion is formed in a disk shape, so that the structure can support the movable portion of the drive member is simple, and can be implemented for driving the movable support mechanism compact design of the drive member.

上述导向槽可沿着预定的轨迹曲线形成,以在上述被记录介质被输送到上述压印平板的上述输送方向上游侧端部时,使上述可动支撑部的扣合部向上述输送方向上游侧端部侧滑动,且伴随该被记录介质的输送,使上述可动支撑部的扣合部以支撑着该被记录介质的端部的状态向上述输送方向下游侧滑动。 The guide groove may be formed along a predetermined curved trajectory, to when the upstream-side end portion of the conveying direction of the recording medium is conveyed to said platen so that the movable engaging portion supporting an upstream portion to the transport direction side end portion side of the slide, and along the recording medium conveyance, said movable engaging portion of the support portion to support the end portion of the recording medium in a state slid to the downstream side of the conveying direction. 在该构成中,可动支撑部,以暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上被记录介质的方式滑动,其后该可动支撑部伴随该被记录介质的输送,以支撑着该被记录介质的端部的状态向该输送方向下游侧滑动。 In this configuration, the movable support portion for temporarily went upstream side in the conveying direction of the recording medium sliding manner, after which the movable support portion of conveyance of the recording medium, to support the end of the recording medium state to the downstream side of the sliding portion of the conveyance direction. 由此,该被记录介质的端部,总是由可动支撑部支撑,因此该被记录介质和记录头的距离切实地保持恒定。 Thus, the end portion of the recording medium, is always supported by a movable support portion, so that the distance from the recording medium and the recording head is reliably kept constant.

上述预定的轨迹曲线可以为阿基米德螺线。 The predetermined trajectory profile may be an Archimedean spiral. 在该构成中,可动支撑部的扣合部伴随旋转板部的旋转,以与该旋转速度对应的速度从旋转板部的中心向径向移动。 In this configuration, the movable portion support portion engaging with the rotation of the rotary plate portion, corresponding to the rotational speed of the rotating speed of the moving plate from the central portion in the radial direction. 因此,可动支撑部可以对应于上述被记录介质的输送速度而以恒定速度顺畅地跟随,可与输送来的被记录介质同步。 Thus, the movable support portion may correspond to the transport speed of the recording medium at a constant speed smoothly follows, with the recording medium conveyed synchronized. 由此,例如通过上述马达进行旋转板部的驱动并进行高析像度记录时,被记录介质的进给量(换行宽度)被设定得较小,但与之对应,旋转板部的旋转角度也变小,可动支撑部的移动量也变小。 Thus, when for example, driven to rotate by the plate portion of the motor and high resolution recording, the recording medium feed (line width) is set to be small, but corresponding, rotation of the rotating plate portion the angle becomes smaller, the amount of movement of the movable support portion is also small. 相反,进行低析像度记录时,被记录介质的进给量(换行宽度)被设定得较大,但与之对应,旋转板部的旋转角度也变大,可动支撑部的移动量也变大。 Conversely, when low-resolution printing, the recording medium feed (line width) is set to be large, but corresponding, portion of the plate rotation angle becomes larger, the amount of movement of the movable support portion also increased.

上述阿基米德螺旋可以形成为以假想基准轴为中心左右对称,其中,上述假想基准轴通过上述旋转板部的中心且形成于上述扣合面上。 The above-described Archimedean spiral may be formed as an imaginary reference axis of symmetry about the center, wherein the virtual reference axis passes through the center of the rotation plate portion and formed on the engaging surface. 在该构成中,可动支撑部从预定的初始位置以暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上被记录介质的方式滑动,并直接连续地,伴随该被记录介质的输送,以支撑着该被记录介质的端部的状态向该输送方向下游侧滑动,进而直接连续地向上述输送方向上游侧滑动而回到上述初始位置。 In this configuration, the movable portion to temporarily support the upstream side in the conveying direction of the recording medium went sliding manner from a predetermined initial position, and directly continuously conveyed along with the recording medium to the recording medium supported to the end portion of the state of the downstream side conveyance direction of the slide, the slide in turn continuously in the conveying direction directly upstream of the side and returns to the initial position. 因此,可动支撑部总是被正确地配置在预定的初始位置。 Thus, the movable support portion is always correctly disposed at a predetermined initial position.

本发明的喷墨记录装置还可具有:限制部件,通过重叠于记录纸的输送方向的边缘部,将该输送来的记录纸和记录头之间的距离限制在一定范围内;和退避机构,在进行无边记录时,使限制部件向与上述输送方向垂直的方向退避以不产生上述重叠。 The inkjet recording apparatus of the present invention may also have: restriction member, to the conveying direction by overlapping of the edge portions of the recording sheet, the distance between the conveyed recording sheet and the recording head is limited to a certain range; and retracting mechanism, during borderless recording, the restriction member is retracted in a direction perpendicular to the conveying direction so as not to generate the overlapping.

在压印平板上输送记录纸,并使记录头向与记录纸的输送方向垂直的方向(即主扫描方向)滑动同时喷出墨滴,从而在该记录纸上记录预定的图像。 Conveying the recording sheet on the platen, and the recording head in the direction perpendicular to the conveying direction of the recording sheet (i.e., main scanning direction) while sliding ejecting ink droplets, thereby recording the predetermined image on paper in the recording. 一般在记录图像时,记录纸和记录头间的距离保持恒定非常重要。 Usually when recording an image, the distance between the recording paper and the recording head is very important to remain constant. 这是因为,从记录头喷出的墨滴极为微细,所以上述距离如果变大则墨水扩散为雾状而使图像模糊,而若上述距离变小则墨水会渗透,其结果,无法进行鲜明的图像记录。 This is because the ink droplets ejected from the recording head is extremely fine, so if the distance becomes large, the diffusion of the ink mist to blur the image, and if the distance becomes small, the ink will penetrate, as a result, can not be sharp image recording. 记录纸和记录头间的距离变化的原因为,记录纸在输送到压印平板上时就已经产生的弯曲等变形(初始变形)、以及在图像记录中产生的起波现象。 Reason the distance between the recording sheet and the recording head is changed, the recording paper deformation such as bending when conveyed onto the platen has been produced (initial deformation), and generating from the image recording of wave phenomenon.

进行有边记录时,一般使用普通纸作为记录纸。 When edged recording, plain paper is generally used as a recording paper. 特别在记录纸为A4尺寸的普通纸等尺寸较大的薄纸时,由于记录中产生的起波现象,记录纸的输送方向的边缘部具有容易从压印平板上浮起的具有。 Particularly when the recording paper is large-size A4 size plain paper tissue, since the recording wave generated from the phenomenon, the edge portion of the recording sheet feeding direction having readily lifted from the platen with. 另一方面,无边记录通常为用于打印照相图像的记录方式,多使用照相用光泽纸等厚纸作为记录纸。 On the other hand, borderless recording mode is generally used to record photographic image printing, photographic glossy paper is often used as the recording sheet thick paper. 这种厚纸难以弯曲,且难以产生上述起波现象,因此,记录纸的输送方向的端部具有难以从压印平板上浮起的倾向。 This is difficult to bend thick paper, and it is difficult to generate waves from above and, therefore, the end portion of the recording sheet feeding direction tends to be difficult to float from the platen.

进行有边记录时,限制部件与记录纸的上述边缘部重叠。 When edged recording member restriction of the edge portion of the recording sheet overlapped. 因此,即使在输送来的记录纸发生初始变形时、以及在记录中记录纸发生起波现象时,也可将该记录纸和记录头间的距离限制在一定范围内。 Accordingly, even when the recording sheet conveyed to the initial deformation occurs, and recorded in the recording sheet from the wave phenomenon, also the distance between the recording paper and the recording head is limited to a certain range. 此外,进行无边记录时,上述限制部件,例如向垂直于上述输送方向的方向退避,因此在压印平板上输送的记录纸和限制部件不会重叠。 Further, when borderless recording, the restricting member, e.g. retracted in a direction perpendicular to the conveying direction, thus conveying the recording sheet on the platen and limiting member do not overlap. 因此,进行无边记录时,从记录头喷出的墨滴不会被挡住,而切实地到达记录纸的上述边缘部。 Thus, when borderless recording, ink droplets ejected from the recording head will not be blocked, and reliably reaches the edge portion of the recording sheet. 另外,如上上述,进行无边记录时,记录纸难以从压印平板浮起,因此不会有因上述限制部件不与记录纸重叠而导致画质的下降的情况。 Further, as described above, when borderless recording, the recording sheet is difficult to float from the platen, so there is no case where a result of the restriction member does not overlap the recording sheet resulting in decreased image quality.

上述限制部件,配置在上述压印平板和记录头的喷墨面之间,可以具有向上述输送方向延伸的细长平板。 The restricting member is disposed between the surfaces of the platen and an ink jet recording head, may have an elongated flat plate extending in the conveying direction. 并且该细长平板的比上述记录头的移动区域靠近上述输送方向上游侧的部分,以延伸到上述喷墨面的上方的方式向斜上方弯曲。 And the elongated plate portion near the upstream side of the conveyance direction than the moving area of ​​the recording head, the ink jet so as to extend to the upper surface of the bent obliquely upward.

由于上述限制部件由细长平板构成,因此具有限制部件的结构极为简单的优点。 Since the restricting member is made of an elongated plate, thus limiting member having a structure extremely simple advantages. 并且,由于如上上述该细长平板弯曲,因此当输送到压印平板上的记录纸的初始变形较大时,例如产生与记录头接触的程度的变形时,该记录纸被该细长平板引导而切实地插入上述限制部件和压印平板之间。 In addition, since as described above the curved elongated plate, so that when the original recording sheet conveyed to the platen deformation is large, for example, the degree of deformation of the recording head in contact with the produce, the recording sheet is guided to the elongated plate and reliably inserted between the restriction member and the platen. 因此,即使记录纸折曲时也可避免该记录纸和记录头的接触,实现鲜明的有边记录。 Therefore, even when the recording sheet can be bent to avoid contact with the recording sheet and the recording head to achieve sharp edged recording.

上述压印平板可以具有在上表面放置有上述记录纸的框架。 Above the platen may have a frame of the recording sheet placed on the surface. 上述退避机构可以具有:输入部件,在上述记录头的作用下向与上述输送方向垂直的方向滑动;旋转板,可旋转地支撑在设于上述框架上的预定的旋转中心轴上,根据上述输入部件的滑动向预定方向旋转;和滑动部件,与上述限制部件连接并与设于上述旋转板上的扣合部扣合,根据该旋转板的旋转向与上述输送方向垂直的方向滑动。 The withdrawal mechanism may have: an input member, sliding in a direction perpendicular to the conveying direction under the action of the recording head; rotating plate rotatably supported in a predetermined rotation center axis is provided on the frame, based on the input the slide member rotates in the predetermined direction; and a slide member, and is connected to the restricting member provided on the rotary plate and engaging portion of the engagement slide in a direction perpendicular to the conveying direction according to the rotation of the rotating plate.

上述记录头在上述主扫描方向上往复移动,伴随该记录头的运动,输入部件向该主扫描方向位移。 The recording head is moved in the main scanning direction reciprocally, along with movement of the recording head, the displacement of the input member to the main scanning direction. 具体地说,例如每当记录头往复运动,该记录头推压上述输入部件,由此该输入部件滑动。 Specifically, for example whenever the recording head is reciprocated, the recording head pushes the input member, whereby the sliding of the input member. 该输入部件滑动时,旋转板向预定的方向旋转。 When the sliding of the input member, the rotary plate is rotated in the predetermined direction. 伴随该旋转板的旋转,滑动部件向上述主扫描方向滑动。 With the rotation, the sliding member slides toward the rotary plate in the main scanning direction. 上述限制部件与该滑动部件连接,因此通过滑动部件滑动,上述限制部件向上述主扫描方向位移。 The restricting member is connected to the sliding member, by sliding the slide member, the restriction member is displaced to the main scanning direction. 即,上述限制部件向垂直于上述输送方向的方向滑动,以不产生上述重叠。 That is, the restricting member slides in a direction perpendicular to the conveying direction, so as not to generate the overlapping.

上述限制部件,可在垂直于上述输送方向的方向上相向配置。 The restricting member may be arranged to face in a direction perpendicular to the conveying direction. 即,优选在主扫描方向上相向配置一对限制部件。 That is, in the main scanning direction is preferably disposed opposed pair of restriction members. 并且,上述退避机构,可具有设于一对滑动部件之间的齿条齿轮副机构,所述一对滑动部件与各限制部件连接。 And the retraction mechanism, may have a gear mechanism disposed between the sub-rack pair of sliding members, the pair of sliding members connected to each restriction member.

由于相向配置一对限制部件,因此相向的一对的上述边缘部和限制部件重叠。 Since the pair of restricting members arranged facing, thus limiting member and said edge portions facing the pair overlap. 由此,进行有边记录时,即使发生上述起波现象,也可将记录纸和记录头间的距离限制在一定范围内。 Thus, when there is performed the recording side, even if the wave from the above-described phenomenon can also be the distance between the recording paper and the recording head within a predetermined range limit occurs. 此外,一对滑动部件经由齿条齿轮副机构连接,所以各限制部件均等地向垂直于上述输送方向的方向离开而退避。 Further, a pair of slide members is connected via a gear rack and gear mechanism, so that the restricting member uniformly retracted in a direction away from and perpendicular to the conveying direction. 因此,切实地避免在压印平板上输送的记录纸和限制部件重叠。 Accordingly, the recording sheet and reliably avoid restriction member conveyed on the platen overlap.

上述退避机构还可具有:旋转限制部件,限制上述旋转板向与预定方向相反的方向的旋转,并通过使上述输入部件滑动到预定的限制解除位置而解除该限制;和弹簧部件,安装于上述旋转板上,与该旋转板向上述预定方向的旋转角度对应地蓄积变形能。 The escape mechanism further includes: a rotation restricting member to restrict rotation of the rotating plate in the opposite direction to the predetermined direction, and the restriction is released by the input member is slid to a predetermined release position limit; and a spring member attached to the the rotating plate, the deformation energy accumulated in correspondence with the rotation angle of the rotary plate toward the predetermined direction.

上述输入部件和旋转限制部件,构成使旋转板仅向上述预定方向旋转而限制其向反方向旋转的棘轮机构。 The input member and the rotation restricting member configured to restrict rotation of the rotating plate ratchet mechanism which only rotates in the reverse direction to the predetermined direction. 因此,每当记录头往复运动时,旋转板向预定方向旋转,并且弹簧部件变形,在该弹簧部件中蓄积变形能。 Thus, every time the recording head is reciprocated in a predetermined direction of rotation of the rotating plate, and the spring member is deformed, the deformation energy accumulated in the spring member. 根据上述记录头的滑动,使上述输入部件滑动到预定的限制解除位置时,解除上述旋转板的旋转限制。 The sliding of the recording head, so that the input member is slid to a predetermined limit release position releasing the rotation restriction of the rotating plate. 即,容许旋转板的自由旋转。 I.e., permit the free rotation of the rotating plate. 因此,上述弹簧部件中蓄积的变形能被释放,上述旋转板向预定方向的反方向旋转。 Thus, the spring member can be released accumulated deformation, the rotating plate rotates in the opposite direction to the predetermined direction. 旋转板向预定方向的反方向旋转,从而上述限制部件回到初始位置。 Rotary plate in the reverse direction a predetermined direction, so that the restricting member to the initial position. 即,在压印平板上输送记录纸时,该记录纸的上述边缘部和限制部件重叠。 That is, the recording sheet is conveyed on the platen, the recording sheet and the restriction member overlapping edge portions.

上述退避机构,还可具有引导上述滑动部件滑动的滑动导向部件。 Above retraction mechanism, further having a guide member slidably guiding the sliding of the slide member. 通过该滑动导向部件使滑动部件顺畅地滑动。 By the sliding member slidably guide the slide member smoothly. 因此,限制部件的动作也顺畅。 Thus, the operation restriction member also smooth. 退避机构,可具有用于使限制部件向与输送来的纸张的面垂直的方向退避的致动器。 The retraction mechanism, the restricting member may have a retracting direction and the plane of the sheet conveyed perpendicular to the actuator.

如图11及图14所示,在旋转板125的反面142设有导向槽143。 As shown in FIG. 11 and FIG. 14, the guide groove 143 is provided on the reverse surface 142 of the rotating plate 125. 该导向槽143形成为描绘预定的轨迹曲线。 The guide groove 143 is formed in a predetermined trajectory curve drawing. 具体地说,在图14中设定以上述圆筒轴127的中心为原点的极座标系、且在该图中设定沿上述反面142向水平方向延伸的假想轴144时,沿着满足R=kθ(k为常数)的轨迹曲线形成上述导向槽143。 Specifically, the polar coordinate system is set in the center of the cylindrical shaft 127 as the origin in FIG. 14, and setting the virtual axis extending in the horizontal direction along the back 142 of 144 in the figure, along satisfy R = kθ (k is a constant) of the track curve of the guide groove 143 is formed. 此时,从原点朝向假想轴144的左侧方向的角度为θ=0,顺时针方向是θ的正方向。 At this time, the angle from the origin toward the left of the imaginary axis direction 144 is θ = 0, the clockwise direction is the positive direction of [theta]. 即,该轨迹曲线描绘阿基米德螺旋,到原点和导向槽143的中心的距离R和上述角度θ是线性关系。 That is, the trajectory curve depicts the Archimedes screw, the origin and the center of the guide groove 143 of the distance R and the angle θ is a linear relationship. 而在本实施方式中,满足R=kθ的轨迹曲线是0°(度)≤θ≤180°的范围,在该范围形成的轨迹曲线被配置为以上述假想轴144为中心左右对称(该图中为上下对称)。 In the present embodiment, satisfies R = kθ track curve range is 0 ° (degrees) ≤θ≤180 °, the track curves formed in this range is configured to the virtual shaft 144 is symmetrical about the center (FIG. for vertically symmetrical). 因此,沿着以上述假想轴144为基准上下对称地形成的阿基米德螺旋形成上述导向槽143。 Thus, Archimedes screw symmetrically formed along the shaft 144 to the virtual reference 143 vertically formed in the guide grooves.

如图11所示,上述杆部件126形成为细长的棒状,被安装在上述可动支撑部88的底座120上。 As illustrated, the rod member 126 is formed as an elongated rod 11, it is mounted on the base 88 of the movable supporting portion 120. 即,在本实施方式中,该杆部件126,作为连动机构105的构成部件起作用,并且兼用作使可动支撑部88与旋转板125扣合的扣合部。 That is, in the present embodiment, the lever member 126, as a constituent member of the interlocking mechanism 105 functions and also serves as the movable engaging portion 88 and the rotation supporting portion 125 engaging the plate. 具体地说,将杆部件126的前端部145嵌合到上述底座120的反面侧,将杆部件126的基端部146嵌合到上述旋转板125的导向槽143中。 More specifically, the distal end portion 145 of the lever member 126 is fitted to the back side of the chassis 120, the base end portion 146 of the lever member 126 is fitted into the guide groove 143 of the rotating plate 125. 该杆部件126,其中间部147支撑在压印平板42的框架100上。 The lever member 126, intermediate portion 147 is supported on the platen 42 of the frame plate 100. 在该图中,杆部件126和压印平板42的框架100的支撑结构没有示出,但例如可以采用在设于框架100的支撑轴(未图示)上可自由转动地嵌合上述中间部147的结构。 In the drawing, the support structure 100 of the lever frame 126 and the platen member 42 is not shown, but for example, may be employed on a frame 100 provided on the support shaft (not shown) rotatably fitted to the intermediate portion structure 147.

杆部件126的基端部146,通过嵌合到旋转板125的导向槽143中,可以仅在该导向槽143的长度方向上位移。 The base end portion 146 of the lever member 126, the guide groove 143 by being fitted to the rotation plate 125 can be displaced only in the longitudinal direction of the guide groove 143. 另一方面,杆部件126的前端部145,通过嵌合到上述底座120上,可仅在主扫描方向上位移。 On the other hand, the lever member 126 is distal portion 145, by being fitted onto the base 120, displaceable only in the main scanning direction. 因此,通过旋转板125旋转,杆部件126的基端部146被上述导向槽143引导,同时该杆部件126以中间部147为摆动中心进行摆动。 Thus, by rotation of the rotating plate 125, the lever member 126 base end portion 146 are guided by the guide groove 143, while the lever member 126 to the intermediate portion 147 as the swing center of the swing. 其结果,杆部件126的前端部145以上述中间部147为摆动中心进行摆动。 As a result, the distal end portion 145 of the lever member 126 to the intermediate portion 147 as the swing center of the swing. 该前端部145可相对上述底座120在主扫描方向上位移,因此通过杆部件126的前端部145摆动,上述底座120在输送方向上滑动。 The distal portion 145 may be relative to the base 120 in the main scanning direction is displaced by swinging the lever member 145 so the distal end portion 126 of the slide base 120 in the conveying direction.

此时,杆部件126的前端部145的位移量,是杆部件126的基端部146的位移量的预定倍数。 In this case, the amount of displacement of the distal end portion 145 of lever member 126, the displacement amount is a predetermined multiple of the base end portion 146 of the lever member 126. 具体地说,该倍率与从上述中间部147到上述前端部145的距离、和从上述中间部147到上述基端部146的距离的比率对应,因此,上述前端部145的位移量是将上述基端部146的位移量放大到上述预定倍数的量。 Specifically, the distance from the magnification of the intermediate portion 147 to the distal end portion 145, 147, and the ratio of the distance to said base end portion of the intermediate portion 146 from a corresponding, therefore, displacement of the distal end portion 145 is above amount of displacement of the base end portion 146 is amplified to a predetermined amount of the multiple. 即,通过设置该杆部件146,将上述旋转板125的旋转量以上述预定倍率转换为上述底座120的输送方向的位移量。 That is, by providing the lever member 146, the rotation amount of the rotating plate 125 is converted into displacement of the transport direction of the base 120 in the above predetermined ratio.

如图12所示,动力传递机构124具有设于排纸辊轴92上的转矩限制器148、和齿轮149~151。 12, the power transmission mechanism 124 has a torque limiter provided in the paper discharge roller 92 on the shaft 148, and gears 149 to 151. 转矩限制器148具有:设于排纸辊轴92上的凸缘153、经由摩擦板152(典型的为无纺布)与凸缘153抵接的推压板154、以及使该推压板154与摩擦板152一起对凸缘153弹性施力的螺旋弹簧155。 The torque limiter 148 includes: a flange 92 provided on the paper discharge roller shaft 153 via the friction plate 152 (typically a nonwoven fabric) with the flange 153 abutting the push plate 154, and causing the pressing plate 154 the friction plate 152 with the flange 153 of the elastic urging of the coil spring 155. 通过该螺旋弹簧155将推压板154推压向凸缘153时,在两者之间产生预定的摩擦力,通过该摩擦力在两者之间进行动力传递。 The coil spring 155 through the push plate 154 pushes against the flange 153, to generate a predetermined frictional force therebetween, the power transmission performed by the frictional force therebetween. 换言之,通过限制上述推压板154和上述凸缘153之间传递的转矩、并将上述螺旋弹簧155的弹力设定得较大,而使被限制的转矩变大。 In other words, by limiting the torque transmitted between the holding plate 154 and the flange 153, and the elastic force of the coil spring 155 is set large, the large torque is restricted.

在该图虽未明确图示,但在推压板154的外周面形成齿,该齿与齿轮149啮合。 Although not explicitly shown in the FIG., But are formed in the outer circumferential surface of the pressing plate 154 of teeth 149 which meshes with the gear teeth. 因此,推压板154旋转时齿轮149也旋转。 Thus, rotation of the gear 154 when the push plate 149 is also rotated. 齿轮150和齿轮149啮合,进而齿轮151和齿轮150啮合。 Gear 150 and the gear 149 meshes, and further gear 151 and the gear 150. 而齿轮150和齿轮151构成锥齿轮列,其旋转中心轴垂直。 The gear 150 and the bevel gear 151 constituting the gear train, which is perpendicular to the central axis of rotation. 如图11所示,该齿轮151的外周面与上述旋转板125的外周面接触。 As shown, the outer peripheral surface of the outer peripheral surface of the gear 151 of the rotating plate 11 contact 125. 在本实施方式中,利用通过齿轮151和旋转板125接触而产生的摩擦力,在两者之间进行转矩传递。 In the present embodiment, the frictional force generated by contact with the gear 151 and the rotating plate 125, torque is transmitted therebetween. 当然也可在齿轮151及旋转板125双方形成齿,两者构成平齿轮列进行连接。 Of course, both may be formed of teeth 125 on the gear 151 and the rotary plate, both constituting the flat gear train connected.

在本实施方式中,设有限制上述旋转板125的旋转的旋转限制机构156。 In the present embodiment, the rotary plate 125 is provided to limit the rotation of the rotation restricting mechanism 156. 如图12所示,该旋转限制机构具有:上述锁定部件139及锁定部件140;螺旋弹簧157(弹性部件),进行弹性施力,以使锁定部件139与旋转板125扣合;和抵接部件158,通过与在主扫描方向上滑动的喷墨记录头39抵接,如后述那样改变锁定部件140的姿势。 12, the rotation restricting mechanism includes: the lock member 139 and locking member 140; 157 coil spring (elastic member) elastically urging, so that the locking member 139 engaging with the rotary plate 125; and the abutting member 158, by sliding in contact with the main scanning direction, the ink jet recording head 39 into contact as described later to change the posture of the locking member 140.

锁定部件139被形成为曲柄状,其基端部由支撑轴159支撑。 The locking member 139 is formed into a crank shape, a base end portion supported by the support shaft 159. 锁定部件139的基端部可自由转动地支撑在支撑轴159上,因此,锁定部件139能以支撑轴159为摆动中心在箭头160的方向上旋转俯仰。 The base end portion of the locking member 139 is rotatably supported on the support shaft 159, therefore, the locking member 139 can swing the support shaft 159 rotates in the pitch in the direction of arrow 160. 在锁定部件139的前端部设有扣合爪161。 The front end portion of the locking member 139 is provided with engaging claws 161. 该扣合爪161的外形形状被形成为楔状,其嵌合到旋转板125的沟槽131内。 The engaging pawl 161 is formed as a wedge-like outer shape, which is fitted into the groove 131 of the rotating plate 125.

锁定部件139以支撑轴159为中心摆动,因此锁定部件139可以在以下两个姿势之间发生姿势变化:倒伏在旋转板125侧,将扣合爪161嵌合到上述沟槽131中的姿势(旋转限制姿势);和从旋转板立起,使扣合爪161从上述沟槽131脱出的姿势(旋转容许姿势)。 139159 locking member is swung around the support shaft, so the locking member 139 can change posture of the posture between the following two: lodging the rotating plate 125 side, the engaging pawl 161 is fitted into the groove 131 in the posture ( rotation restriction position); and rising from the rotating plate, so that the engaging pawl 161 from coming off the groove 131 posture (rotation allowing posture). 由于设有上述螺旋弹簧155,因此锁定部件139始终被向旋转限制姿势侧施力。 Since the coil spring 155 is provided, so the locking member 139 is constantly biased toward the rotation restriction position side.

因此,在上述扣合爪161扣合于上述沟槽131的状态下,在旋转板125要正转时,扣合爪161和上述正转限制面132(参照图13)在正转方向上抵接,因此旋转板125的正转被限制。 Thus, in the state in which the engaging pawl 161 engaging in the groove 131 of the plate 125 during rotation to normal rotation, and said engaging pawls 161 to limit the forward face 132 (see FIG. 13) in the forward direction against then, the normal rotation so that the rotation plate 125 is restricted. 另一方面,即使在上述扣合爪161与上述沟槽131嵌合的状态下,旋转板125反转时,扣合爪161也可以沿上述反转容许面133(参照图13)滑动。 On the other hand, even in the above-described engaging claw 161 and the groove 131 is fitted state, the reverse rotation plate 125, the engaging pawl 161 may be 133 (see FIG. 13) slide along the inverted allowable surface. 扣合爪161沿上述反转容许面133滑动,从而锁定部件139抵抗上述螺旋弹簧155的弹力而向旋转容许姿势侧变化。 Engaging pawl 161 slides along the inverted permitting surface 133, so that the locking member 139 against the spring force of the coil spring 155 may allow changes to the rotary posture side. 由此,扣合爪161到达旋转板125的肋128的上表面137,并伴随旋转板125的旋转在该上表面137上滑动。 Accordingly, the rib engaging pawl 161 of the rotating plate 125 reaches the upper surface 128 of the 137, 125 and associated rotary plate slides on the upper surface 137.

此外,锁定部件140被形成为四棱柱状。 Further, the locking member 140 is formed as a quadrangular prism. 在图12中虽未图示,但在锁定部件140的下端部形成有扣合爪。 Although not shown in FIG. 12, but in the lower end portion of the locking member 140 is formed with engagement pawls. 该扣合爪也和上述锁定部件139的扣合爪161同样被形成为楔状,与设于旋转板125的肋129上的沟槽134嵌合。 The engaging pawl and said locking member 139 is also the same engaging pawl 161 is formed as a wedge, and the rib 129 is provided on the rotary plate 125 is fitted in the groove 134. 锁定部件140被设置为在该图中可沿上下方向滑动,并由螺旋弹簧162始终向下方弹性施力。 The locking member 140 is arranged to be slidable in the vertical direction in the drawing by the coil spring 162 is always elastically biased downward. 即,设于锁定部件140上的扣合爪,总是与旋转板125扣合而限制旋转板125的反转,但容许旋转板125的正转。 That is, provided on the locking member engaging pawl 140, the rotating plate 125 always engaging with the reverse rotation of the rotating plate 125, but to allow rotation of the plate 125 forward.

抵接部件158与锁定部件139的基端部连接。 The contact member 158 is connected to the base end portion 139 of the locking member. 因此,抵接部件158能以上述支撑轴159为中心与锁定部件139一起转动。 Thus, the contact member 158 can be at the center of the support shaft 159 is rotated together with the lock member 139. 抵接部件158的前端部164被形成为向上方延伸的臂状,在上述喷墨记录头39的滑架38(参照图5)沿主扫描方向滑动时与该前端部164抵接。 The distal end portion 164 of the contact member 158 is formed as an arm extending upwardly, sliding abutment with the distal end portion 164 of the ink jet recording head 39 of the carriage 38 (see FIG. 5) in the main scanning direction. 此外,上述螺旋弹簧157与抵接部件158连接,与该抵接部件158一起如上所述对锁定部件139弹性施力。 Further, the coil spring 157 and the contact member 158 is connected with the abutting member 158 as described above with an elastic member 139 urging the lock.

接下来,对本实施方式的复合机1中图像记录的顺序进行说明。 Next, the order of the multifunction peripheral 1 according to the present embodiment will be described image recording.

在本实施方式的复合机1中,可通过操作上述操作面板4(参照图1)选择图像记录的方式。 In the present embodiment, the multifunction peripheral 1 may be 4 (see FIG. 1) to select an image recording operation by the operation panel. 即,可通过用户操作操作面板4,任意地选择所谓有边记录或无边记录。 That is, four, arbitrarily selected a so-called endless edged recording or recording by the user operating the operation panel. 通过操作面板4设定记录方式后,从ASIC 70(参照图8)向CPU 65发送用于指示记录方式的信号。 After setting a recording mode through the operation panel 4, it transmits a signal indicating the recording mode of the CPU 65 from the ASIC 70 (see FIG. 8). CPU 65接收该信号,对上述驱动电路74及驱动电路75发出用于驱动CR马达73及记录头39的命令。 CPU 65 receives the signal, issues a command for driving the CR motor 73 and the recording head 39 to the drive circuit 74 and the driving circuit 75. 具体地说,设定为无边记录时,驱动上述CR马达73,以使上述滑架38(参照图5)推压上述抵接部件158。 Specifically, when the recording is set to infinity, driving the CR motor 73, so that the carriage 38 (see FIG. 5) pressing the abutting member 158.

图15是表示进行无边记录时记录纸的输送及可动支撑部88的滑动的时序的时序图。 15 is a timing chart showing a recording timing of the delivery slide and movable support portion of the paper 88 when the recording infinity. 在该图中,横轴表示时间的经过。 In the figure, the horizontal axis represents the passage of time. 此外,在该图中,线图167及线图173分别表示输送来的记录纸前端及后端位置的位移,线图170表示可动支撑部88的位移。 Further, in this figure, line 167 and line 173 FIG respectively conveyed recording sheet front and rear displacement positions, FIG line 170 represents displacement of the movable portion 88 of the support. 进而,在该图中,线图169及线图168分别表示抵接部件158的位移及LF马达71的驱动时序。 Further, in this figure, line 169 and line 168 represent the displacement and FIG LF motor 158 driving timing of the contact member 71. 图16是按从(a)到(d)的顺序表示记录纸输送时可动支撑部88的位移的图。 FIG 16 is a sequence from (a) to (d) represents the displacement of the movable supporting portion 88 in FIG recording paper transportation. 在该图中,表示了从由输送辊60将记录纸定位后到对该记录纸的记录结束的动作时序,省略了从供纸盘20输送的记录纸到输送辊60的动作。 In the figure, showing the operation timing of the conveying roller 60 after the recording paper is positioned to the recording sheet is ended, the operation is omitted from the recording sheet supply tray 20 is conveyed to the conveying roller 60.

进行图像记录时,首先,为了向纸张输送路径23输送放置在供纸盘20上的记录纸,控制部64驱动LF马达71以旋转供纸辊25。 When recording an image, first of all, to the sheet conveying path 23 for conveying the paper feed tray 20 is placed on the recording sheet, the drive control unit 64 LF motor 71 to rotate the paper feed roller 25. 供纸时,LF马达71被反转驱动,通过传递该驱动,供纸辊25向输送记录纸的方向旋转,输送辊60及排纸辊62向与输送方向相反的方向旋转。 When the sheet feeding, the LF motor 71 is reverse driven by transmitting the driving feed roller 25 is rotated in the direction of conveying the recording sheet, the conveying roller 60 and discharge roller 62 rotated in the direction opposite to the conveying direction. 从供纸盘20输送到纸张输送路径23的记录纸,以沿着纸张输送路径23从下方向上方反转的方式进行输送,其前端与记录传感器95抵接,进而通过输送与输送辊60及夹紧辊抵接。 From the feed tray 20 conveyed to the sheet conveying path of the recording sheet 23 to be conveyed along the sheet conveying path 23 is inverted from the upward direction of the embodiment, the tip 95 abuts against the recording transducer, and further by the transport roller 60 and the conveyance pinch roller abuts. 输送辊60向与输送方向相反的方向旋转,因此对记录纸在其前端与输送辊60及夹紧辊抵接的状态下进行定位处理。 The conveying roller 60 is rotated in the direction opposite to the conveying direction, the recording sheet thus treated is positioned at its front end to the conveying roller 60 and the pinch roller contact state. 该定位位置在图15中用参照标号174表示。 FIG 15 is positioned at the position indicated by reference numeral 174 indicates. 记录纸的定位处理结束后,控制部64正转驱动LF马达71。 After completion of positioning processing of the recording sheet, the control section 64 drives the LF motor 71 forward. 由此,定位处理后的记录纸被输送辊60及夹紧辊夹持,如线图167所示在压印平板42上输送。 Accordingly, the recording sheet after the positioning process is the conveying roller and the pinch roller holder 60, as indicated by line 167 shown in FIG conveyed on the platen 42.

通过反转LF马达71,使排纸辊62向与输送方向相反的方向旋转,该旋转经由旋转传递机构124传递到旋转板125。 By reversing the LF motor 71, the paper discharge roller 62 is rotated in the direction opposite to the conveying direction, this rotation is transmitted via the rotation transmission mechanism 124 to the rotating plate 125. 旋转板125位于初始位置时,即锁定部件140与沟槽134扣合时,限制旋转板125的旋转。 When the rotating plate 125 in the initial position, i.e. the locking member 140 and the groove 134 snap engaged, limit rotation of the rotating plate 125. 因此,通过转矩限制器148,在停止了旋转板125的反转的状态下仅反转排纸辊轴92。 Thus, the torque limiter 148, in a stopped state where the rotation of plate 125 merely reverse the reversal sheet ejection roller shaft 92. 此外,若旋转板125不在初始位置,则锁定部件140没有与沟槽134扣合,因此排纸辊62的旋转通过旋转传递机构124传递到旋转板125,旋转板125反转。 Further, when the rotation plate 125 is not in the initial position, the lock member 140 is not engaging the groove 134, so that the rotation of the discharge roller 62 by the rotation transmission mechanism 124 is transmitted to the rotating plate 125, the rotary plate 125 is reversed. 并且,旋转板125反转到初始位置时,锁定部件140与沟槽134扣合,如上所述限制旋转板125的反转,仅反转排纸辊轴92。 And, when the rotary plate 125 is reversed to the initial position, the locking member 140 engaging with the groove 134, the reverse rotation of the rotating plate 125 as described above, only the reversal sheet ejection roller shaft 92. 另外,这种LF马达71的反转驱动,作为在初始位置对旋转板125进行初始化的动作,可以设定为在复合机1的电源接通时或解除错误后进行。 Further, the LF motor 71 is driven reverse, in the operation as an initial position of the rotating plate 125 is initialized to be set after the power supply when the multifunction device 1 is turned on or reset errors. 此外,通过使旋转板125位于初始位置,使锁定部件139与沟槽131扣合,也限制了旋转板125的正转。 Further, the rotating plate 125 in the initial position, the locking member 139 engaging with the groove 131, also limits the forward rotation of the plate 125.

进行无边记录时,跟随记录纸的输送,可动支撑部88滑动。 When borderless recording, following conveying the recording sheet, the movable portion 88 is slidably supported. 详细地说,记录纸被配置在上述初始位置174(参照图15)时,如图16(a)所示,可动支撑部88位于压印平板42的中央,杆部件126的基端部146被配置在旋转板125的导向槽143的预定位置、即图14中参照标号165所示的位置。 In detail, the recording sheet is disposed at the initial position 174 (see FIG. 15), FIG. 16 (a), the movable support portion 88 located on the proximal end of the central portion 146, the lever member 42 of the platen 126 is arranged at a predetermined position of the guide groove 125 of the rotating plate 143, i.e., the position shown in Figure 14 with reference numeral 165. 另外,该参照标号165所示的位置,是指通过上述圆筒轴127的中心并与假想轴144垂直的假想轴172与导向槽143交叉的位置。 Further, the reference numeral 165 in the position shown, by means of the central shaft 127 and the cylinder 144 with a virtual axis 172 perpendicular to the guide groove 143 intersects the virtual axis position. 图16(a)中可动支撑部88、旋转板125及杆部件126的相对位置关系是这些各部件的初始位置。 FIG 16 (a) the movable support portion 88, the relative positional relationship between the lever 125 and rotating plate member 126 is the initial position of each of these components.

如上所述,以输送辊60为基准将记录纸的前端定位后,如图15的线图168所示以正转方式间歇驱动LF马达71,将记录纸输送到压印平板42上的记录位置。 As described above, the conveying roller 60 after the front end of the recording sheet positioning reference will line shown in FIG. 15 forward intermittently driving the LF motor 71168, the recording sheet conveyed to the platen 42, the recording position . 其后,如线图169所示,还以预定的时序驱动CR马达73。 Thereafter, as indicated by line 169, also at a predetermined timing drive the CR motor 73. 由此,滑架38(参照图5)在主扫描方向上滑动,与旋转限制机构156的抵接部件158(参照图12)抵接。 Accordingly, the carriage 38 (see FIG. 5) slide in the main scanning direction, and the rotation restricting mechanism 158 of the contact member 156 (refer to FIG. 12) abuts. 此时的滑架38的滑动量的控制、即CR马达73的驱动控制,由上述控制部64进行。 At this time, the slide carriage 38 to control the amount, i.e., drive control of the CR motor 73 is performed by the control unit 64.

如图12所示,由滑架38在主扫描方向上推压抵接部件158时(图15中为ON),锁定部件139以支撑轴159为中心转动,变为旋转容许姿势。 12, by the carriage 38 in the main scanning direction when the pressing member 158 abuts (is in the ON FIG. 15), the locking member 139 is rotated around the support shaft 159, into a rotation permission position. 即,扣合爪161从旋转板125脱离,旋转板125可以正转(以圆筒轴127为中心顺时针旋转)。 That is, the engaging pawl 161 disengaged from the rotating plate 125, the rotary plate 125 can forward (in the center of the cylindrical shaft 127 rotates clockwise). 如上所述,通过LF马达71使排纸辊轴92沿输送方向旋转时,该旋转经由动力传递机构124传递到旋转板125,该旋转板125正转。 As described above, the LF motor 71 by the paper discharge roller shaft 92 is rotated in the conveying direction, this rotation is transmitted to the power transmitting mechanism 124 via the rotary plate 125, the rotary plate 125 forward. 其结果,可动支撑部88如图15的线图170所示位移,可动支撑部88、旋转板125及杆部件126的相对位置关系按图16(b)~(d)的顺序变化。 As a result, the displacement of the movable supporting portion 170 as shown in FIG. 88 line in FIG. 15, the movable 88, change the order of FIG. 16 (b) ~ (d) the relative positional relationship between the rotation lever member 125 and the support plate portion 126. 以下进一步对可动支撑部88的移动进行详细讲述。 The following further movement of the movable support portion 88 is a detailed account.

可动支撑部88,在初始时位于第一固定肋102和第二固定肋103之间(参照图9),但如图15中线图170所示,在将记录纸的前端向压印平板42的框架100的输送方向上游侧端部输送时,可动支撑部88向输送方向上游侧移动而迎上该记录纸。 Movable support portion 88, located between the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 102 at the time between the initial 103 (see FIG. 9), the line shown in Figure 15, the leading end of the recording sheet 42 to the platen plate 170 when the conveyance direction upstream side end portion 100 of the transport frame, 88 movable in the conveying direction upstream side support portion of the recording paper moves went. 具体地说,通过LF马达71的正转,向输送辊60输送方向旋转而向压印平板42传送记录纸,并且驱动传递该LF马达71的正转而使旋转板125正转。 Specifically, the LF motor 71 in the forward rotation, conveying the recording sheet 42 by rotating the platen roller 60 to the transport direction of conveyance, and the drive transmission of the LF motor 71 rotates toward normal rotational plate 125 forward. 此时的旋转板125的旋转方向,在图14及图16中为顺时针方向。 At this time, the rotational direction of the rotating plate 125 in FIG. 14 and FIG. 16 is clockwise. 旋转板125正转时,杆部件126的基端部146的位置165,沿图14中箭头171的方向相对移动。 Plate 125 is rotated forward, the proximal end portion of the rod member 126 of a position 165146, relative movement in the direction of the arrow 171 in FIG. 14. 即,上述基端部146的位置165和圆筒轴127的距离,随着旋转板125的旋转而逐渐变小。 That is, from the position of the base end portion 146 of the cylindrical shaft 165 and 127, with the rotation of the rotation plate 125 gradually becomes smaller. 因此,如图16(b)所示,杆部件126以中间部147为摆动中心进行摆动,其结果使可动支撑部88向上述输送方向上游侧移动。 Thus, in FIG. 16 (b), the lever member 126 to the intermediate portion 147 as the swing center of the swing, with the result that the movable-side support portion 88 moves to the conveying direction upstream. 旋转板125的旋转角度达到90°后,可动支撑部88被配置在进入到相邻的第一固定肋102之间的位置(第一位置),迎上记录纸。 After the rotation angle of the plate 125 reaches 90 °, the movable supporting portion 88 is disposed into a position (first position) between neighboring first fixed ribs 102, went up the recording paper. 在本实施方式中,如图15所示,在记录纸的前端到达压印平板42的输送方向上游侧端部前,可动支撑部88移动到与该输送方向上游侧端部对应的第一位置上。 In the present embodiment, shown in Figure 15, the front end of the recording sheet reaches the platen prior to the transport direction upstream side end portion 42, the movable portion 88 moves the first support to a corresponding portion of the upstream end of the conveying direction, position. 因此,可动支撑部88的肋121由记录纸从上方覆盖。 Accordingly, the rib 121 supporting the movable portion 88 is covered by the recording sheet from above.

其后,如该图所示,交替重复由滑架38的滑动引起墨滴喷出、及按照预定换行宽度输送与设定的析像度对应的记录纸,在该记录纸上进行图像记录。 Thereafter, as shown in the figure, caused by the sliding alternately repeating the carriage 38 for ejecting ink droplets, and, recording an image on the recording paper by a predetermined linefeed width of the conveyor and the set of the recording sheet corresponding to the resolution. 即,如图15的线图168所示,以正转方式间歇驱动LF马达71,按照预定的换行宽度间歇地传送记录纸。 That is, the line 168 shown in FIG. 15, in a forward intermittently driving the LF motor 71 is intermittently conveying the recording paper width in accordance with a predetermined line feed. 与LF马达71的驱动连动地使旋转板125旋转,因此通过如上所述间歇地传送记录纸,旋转板125也可与之同步按照预定的旋转角度间歇旋转。 LF motor 71 and drive linkage 125 to the rotating plate rotates, so by intermittently conveying the recording sheet described above, the rotary plate 125 can be rotated synchronously with the rotation angle in accordance with a predetermined interval. 杆部件126的基端部146的位置165,进一步向图14中箭头171的方向移动,旋转板125的旋转角度达到360°时回复到上述初始位置。 The base end of the lever member 126 positions 165,146, and further moved in the direction of arrow 171 in FIG. 14, the rotation angle reaches plate 125 returns to the initial position upon 360 °. 即,旋转板125的旋转角度超过90°而在270°以下的范围内,上述基端部146的位置165和圆筒轴127的距离,伴随旋转板125的旋转而逐渐变大。 That is, plate 125 of the rotation angle exceeds 90 ° in the range of 270 ° or less, from the position of the base end portion 146 of the cylinder 165 and the shaft 127, along with rotation of the rotation plate 125 gradually becomes large. 因此,如图16(b)~(d)所示,杆部件126以中间部147为摆动中心进行摆动,其结果,使可动支撑部88向上述输送方向下游侧移动。 Thus, in FIG. 16 (b) ~ (d), the lever member 126 to the intermediate portion 147 as the swing center of the swing, as a result, the movable toward the downstream of the conveying direction of the support portion 88 side. 旋转板125的旋转角度达到270°时,可动支撑部88被配置在进入到相邻的第二固定肋103的位置(第二位置)。 When the rotation angle plate 125 reaches 270 °, the movable supporting portion 88 is disposed at a position (second position) into the adjacent second fixing rib 103. 进而通过旋转板125旋转,上述基端部146的位置165和圆筒轴127的距离,伴随旋转板125的旋转而逐渐变小。 Further by rotation of the rotary plate 125 from the position of the base end 165 and the cylindrical portion 146 of shaft 127, along with rotation of the rotation plate 125 gradually becomes smaller. 因此,杆部件126以中间部147为摆动中心进行摆动,使可动支撑部88向上述输送方向上游侧移动。 Thus, the lever member 126 to the intermediate portion 147 as the swing center of the swing, the movable-side support portion 88 moves to the conveying direction upstream. 旋转板125的旋转角度达到360°时,可动支撑部88回复到上述初始位置。 When the rotation angle plate 125 reaches 360 °, the movable supporting portion 88 returns to the initial position.

旋转板125这样旋转时,如图12所示,扣合爪161在肋128的上表面137上滑动。 Thus rotating the rotary plate 125, as shown in FIG engaging pawl 161 slides on the upper surface of the rib 128 of 13,712. 因此,旋转板125的旋转角度达到360°时,由螺旋弹簧157施力的扣合爪161再次嵌入到旋转板125的沟槽131(参照图13)中,限制旋转板125的正转。 Thus, when the rotation angle of the plate 125 reaches 360 °, the spiral engagement pawl 161 urging spring 157 is fitted into the groove 131 again to the rotating plate 125 (see FIG. 13), the restriction plate 125 forward rotation. 旋转板125的正转被限制时,动力传递机构124停止,但由于设有转矩限制器148,因此LF马达71的驱动力被传递到输送辊60及排纸辊轴92。 The forward rotation of the rotating plate 125 is restricted, the power transmission mechanism 124 is stopped, but the torque limiter 148 is provided, so that the drive force of the LF motor 71 is transmitted to the conveying roller 60 and the paper discharge roller 92. 因此,可确保记录纸的顺畅的输送。 Thus, to ensure smooth conveyance of the recording sheet.

在确保了记录纸的顺畅输送的状态下,记录纸如图15所示以预定的换行宽度间歇地被输送,继续进行图像记录。 In a state where the recording sheet to ensure smooth transport of the recording sheet shown in Figure 15 with a predetermined linefeed width is conveyed intermittently, to continue recording the image. 此时,如该图中线图170所示,可动支撑部88停止在上述初始位置。 At this time, as shown in FIG. FIG line, 170 supporting the movable portion 88 is stopped at the initial position. 而如线图173所示,伴随记录纸的输送,该记录纸的后端接近压印平板42的输送方向上游侧端部。 And as shown by line 173, the recording sheet is conveyed along the rear end of the recording paper closer to the platen 42 in the conveying direction upstream side end portion. 记录纸的后端由记录传感器95检测到。 The rear end of the recording by the recording sheet sensor 95 detects. 根据该检测信号,控制部64进行CR马达73的驱动控制,由此,如图15的线图169所示,使滑架38在主扫描方向上滑动而与上述抵接部件158(参照图12)抵接(图15的“ON”)。 Drive control of the CR motor 73, whereby the line as shown in FIG. 15, the carriage 16 938 slidable in the main scanning direction of the abutting member 158 (see FIG basis of the detection signal, the control unit 64 12 ) abutting ( "ON" in FIG. 15).

由滑架38在主扫描方向上推压抵接部件158时,如上所述,锁定部件139以支撑轴159为中心转动,扣合爪161从旋转板125脱离。 By the carriage 38 in the main scanning direction is pressed against the contact member 158, as described above, the locking member 139 rotates around the support shaft 159, engaging pawl 161 is disengaged from the rotating plate 125. 由此,旋转板125可以正转(以圆筒轴127为中心顺时针旋转),其结果,可动支撑部88如图15的线图170所示发生位移,可动支撑部88、旋转板125及杆部件126的相对位置关系再次按照图16(b)~(d)的顺序变化。 Thus, the rotary plate 125 can forward (in the center of the cylindrical shaft 127 is rotated clockwise), as a result, the movable support portion 88 as shown in line 170 as shown in FIG. 15 is displaced, the movable support portion 88, the rotating plate 125 and the relative positional relationship between the rod member 126 (b) (d) changes in the sequence in FIG. 16 to again. 即,记录纸的后端到达压印平板42的输送方向上游侧端部前,通过LF马达71的间歇驱动,间歇地将可动支撑部88移动到与该输送方向上游侧端部对应的第一位置。 That is, the front end of the recording paper reaches the upstream end portion of the platen 42 in the conveying direction, by intermittently driving the LF motor 71 is intermittently movable first support portion 88 is moved to the upstream end portion and the conveying direction corresponding a position. 另外,此时可动支撑部88的肋121也由输送来的记录纸从上方覆盖。 In this case the ribs 121 supporting the movable portion 88 is also covered by the recording sheet conveyed from above. 其后,如该图所示,交互地重复由滑架38的滑动引起墨滴喷出、及按照预定的换行宽度输送与设定的析像度对应的记录纸,继续进行向该记录纸的图像记录。 Thereafter, as shown in the figure, the slide caused by alternately repeating the carriage 38 for ejecting ink droplets, and in accordance with a predetermined linefeed width of the recording paper conveyed to the set resolution corresponding to the recording paper proceeds image recording. 与LF马达71的驱动连动地使旋转板125旋转,因此通过如上所述间歇地驱动LF马达71,旋转板125也与之同步按照预定的旋转角度间歇地旋转。 LF motor 71 and drive linkage 125 to the rotating plate rotates, so by intermittently driving the LF motor 71 as described above, the rotary plate 125 also rotates in synchronization therewith intermittently according to a predetermined rotation angle. 该状态下肋121以支撑着记录纸的状态向输送方向下游侧滑动。 In this state, the ribs 121 supporting the recording sheet to the downstream side of the conveyance state of the sliding direction.

旋转板125旋转一周后,再次将由螺旋弹簧157施力的扣合爪161嵌入到旋转板125的沟槽131(参照图13)中,限制旋转板125的正转,并且可动支撑部88、旋转板125及杆部件126的相对位置关系回复到初始位置。 After one rotation plate 125 is rotated, again by the coil spring 157 biases the insert engaging pawl 161 into the groove 131 of the rotating plate 125 (see FIG. 13), the restriction of the rotation plate 125 forward, and the movable support portion 88, relative positional relationship between the rotating plate 125 and the lever member 126 returns to the initial position. 并且,对该记录纸的图像记录结束后,以正转方式连续驱动LF马达71,将该记录纸排出到排纸盘21(参照图3)。 Then, after the image recording sheet to a continuous forward drive the LF motor 71, the recording sheet is discharged onto the discharge tray 21 (see FIG. 3). 另外,此时旋转板125的旋转被限制,但排纸辊62通过上述转矩限制器148(参照图12)顺畅地旋转。 Further, at this time rotation of the rotating plate 125 is restricted, but the paper discharge roller 62 is smoothly rotated by the torque limiter 148 (see FIG. 12).

此外,通过操作上述操作面板4将图像记录的方式设定为有边记录时,上述滑架38不会与上述抵接部件158抵接。 Further, when setting the recording side, the carriage 38 does not abut the abutment member 158 by operating the operation panel 4 mode image recording. 因此,上述可动支撑部88并不像上述那样滑动,而使停止在上述初始位置。 Thus, the movable portion 88 not supporting the slide As described above, the stop in the initial position. 另外,在进行有边记录时,优选设定为在供纸前使LF马达71反转。 Further, when there is performed the recording side is preferably set such that the LF motor 71 is reversed before the sheet feeding. 此时,如上所述,即使锁定部件140没有与旋转板125扣合,通过旋转板125反转,锁定部件140也必然嵌入到旋转板125的沟槽134中,切实地进行初始化。 At this time, as described above, even when the lock member 140 and the rotary plate 125 is not engaging, the rotating plate 125 by reversing the locking member 140 is embedded into the trench 134 also bound the rotating plate 125, reliably initialized.

在本实施方式的复合机1中,输送到压印平板42上的记录纸由该压印平板42支撑,在主扫描方向上使喷墨记录头39滑动,同时喷出墨滴,从而在记录纸上记录图像。 In the multifunction peripheral 1 according to the present embodiment, the recording sheet conveyed to the platen 42 is supported by the platen 42, the ink jet recording head 39 slidable in a main scanning direction while ejecting ink droplets, whereby recording paper record images. 该记录纸在记录图像的同时还沿输送方向进行输送,而此时,如图9及图15所示,可动支撑部88以支撑着记录纸的状态沿输送方向滑动。 The recording sheet while the recording image is conveyed further in the conveying direction, but this time, as shown in FIG 9 and FIG 15, the movable supporting the recording sheet to the state of the sliding portion 88 along the conveying direction of the support.

如图12所示,通过旋转板125的旋转驱动该可动支撑部88,而该旋转板125以圆筒轴127为中心旋转,该圆筒轴127垂直于压印平板42的上表面109。 12, the rotational driving plate 125 by the rotation of the movable support portion 88, the rotating plate 125 and a cylindrical shaft 127 rotates, the cylindrical shaft 127 perpendicular to the surface 109 of the platen 42. 即,旋转板125在配置成与压印平板42的上表面109平行的状态下旋转。 That is, the rotary plate 125 is rotated in a state where the platen 109 and arranged parallel to the upper surface 42. 旋转板125有效且紧凑地配置在压印平板42的附近,其结果,可实现图像记录单元24的小型化,进而可实现复合机1的紧凑化设计。 Rotating plate 125 is disposed efficiently and compactly near the platen 42, as a result, can realize miniaturization of the image recording unit 24, and thus compact design of the multifunction device 1 can be achieved.

如图16所示,杆部件126与旋转板125的导向槽143扣合,因此伴随旋转板125的旋转,杆部件126的前端部145在压印平板42的输送方向上游侧端部和输送方向下游侧端部之间,沿该输送方向移动。 , The lever member 126 and the rotating plate 143 engaging the guide groove 125 in FIG. 16, so along with the rotation of the rotating plate 125, the front end portion of the lever member 126 in the platen 145 in the conveying direction upstream side end portion 42 and the conveying direction between the downstream side end portion, along the conveying direction. 即,可动支撑部88跟随记录纸而顺畅地滑动,该记录纸的端部总是由可动支撑部88支撑,记录纸不会相对于输送方向弯曲。 That is, the movable portion 88 supporting the recording sheet to follow smoothly the slide, an end portion of the recording paper is always supported by the movable support portion 88, the recording paper conveying direction without bending. 因此,如本实施方式这样,在第一固定肋102和第二固定肋103之间形成沟槽116(参照图9),记录纸也不会向该沟槽116侧下垂,记录纸和喷墨记录头39的距离保持恒定。 Accordingly, as in the present embodiment, the trench 116 is formed (see FIG. 9) between the first fixed ribs 102 and second fixed ribs 103, the recording sheet does not droop to the side groove 116, and an ink jet recording sheet from the recording head 39 remains constant. 其结果,实现了对记录纸的高画质记录。 As a result, high image quality recording on the recording sheet.

并且,可动支撑部88以LF马达71为驱动源进行滑动,因此可进一步使可动支撑部88顺畅地滑动。 The movable supporting portion 88 to the LF motor 71 as a drive source for sliding, thus further supporting the movable portion 88 slides smoothly. 因此,具有可实现对记录纸的更高画质记录的优点。 Thus, an advantage can be achieved higher quality recording recording paper.

在本实施方式中,可动支撑部88与由LF马达71驱动的排纸辊轴92连动。 In the present embodiment, the movable support portion 88 and the discharge roller shaft 71 is driven by the LF motor 92 interlocked. 一般在喷墨记录装置中,输送辊被配置在记录头的附近,从输送辊60到排纸辊62的动力传递机构83、清洁机构51等,必须相对于这些输送辊60及喷墨记录头39保持预定的几何学位置关系。 In general ink jet recording apparatus, the conveying roller is arranged in the vicinity of the recording head, the conveying roller 83, a cleaning mechanism 51 or the like power transmission mechanism 60 to the paper discharge roller 62, the recording head must be relative to the conveying roller 60 and the inkjet 39 maintaining a predetermined geometric positional relationship. 因此,假设上述可动支撑部88从与喷墨记录头39靠近配置的输送辊60获得驱动力,则根据上述几何学位置关系难以进行图像记录单元24的设计,机构也变得复杂。 Therefore, assuming that the movable supporting part 88 is obtained near the driving force from the ink jet recording head 39 and the conveying roller 60 arranged, according to the geometrical position relationship between the image recording unit 24 is difficult to design, mechanism becomes complicated. 但是,在本实施方式的复合机1中,上述可动支撑部88从在空间上宽裕的排纸辊62侧得到驱动力,因此机构被简单化,也可以进一步实现复合机1的紧凑设计。 However, the multifunction peripheral 1 according to the present embodiment, the movable supporting part 88 resulting from the driving force on the space 62 side of the discharge roller off, thus mechanism is simplified, the multifunction peripheral may further be implemented in a compact design.

此外,在本实施方式中,作为驱动可动支撑部88的手段,采用形成为圆盘状的旋转板125,因此可动支撑部88的驱动结构极为简单,并且也可将用于使旋转板125旋转的机构设计得紧凑。 In the present embodiment, as a means for driving the movable support portion 88, the use of a disc shape rotating plate 125, thus driving the movable support portion 88 of the structure is extremely simple, and can be used rotating plate rotating mechanism 125 is designed to be compact. 因此,可以实现图像记录单元24的进一步小型化。 Thus, it is possible to achieve further miniaturization of the image recording unit 24.

进而,由于在旋转板125上形成上述形状的导向槽143,因此如图16所示,可动支撑部88滑动,以暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上记录纸,其后伴随记录纸的输送向输送方向下游侧滑动。 Further, since the shape of the guide groove of the plate 125 in the rotation 143 so shown in Figure 16, slidably support the movable portion 88, to temporarily went upstream side in the conveying direction of the recording paper, and thereafter the recording sheet conveyed along slide conveyance direction downstream side. 由此,记录纸的端部总是由可动支撑部88支撑,因此该记录纸和喷墨记录头39的距离较为确切地保持恒定。 Thus, the end portion of the recording sheet is always supported by the movable support portion 88, so that the recording paper is kept constant distance and an ink jet recording head 39 is more exactly. 因此,可实现对记录纸的更高画质的记录。 Accordingly, higher quality recording can be realized recording paper.

特别是,在本实施方式中,上述导向槽143的形状呈阿基米德螺旋状,因此杆部件126的前端部145,对应于旋转板125的旋转而从该旋转板125的中心向径向移动(参照图16)。 In particular, in the present embodiment, the shape of the guide groove 143 form an Archimedean spiral, and therefore the distal end portion 145 of the lever member 126, corresponding to the rotation of the rotary plate 125 and radially from the center of the rotating plate 125 moving (see FIG. 16). 具体地说,旋转板125的旋转角度和上述前端部145的移动量如上所述存在线性关系,因而与以恒定速度旋转的旋转板125对应地,即与按照预定的换行宽度间歇输送的记录纸同步地,可动支撑部88以恒定速度顺畅地跟随记录纸的输送。 Specifically, the rotation angle of the plate 125 and the amount of movement of the distal end portion 145 of a linear relationship exists as described above, and thus rotates at a constant speed corresponding to the rotating plate 125, i.e., the recording sheet conveyance in accordance with a predetermined linefeed width intermittently synchronization movable support portion 88 at a constant speed smoothly follows the conveyed recording paper. 因此,例如进行高析像度记录时,记录纸的进给量(即换行宽度)被设定得较小,但与之对应,旋转板以较小的旋转角度间歇地旋转。 Thus, for example, high resolution recording, the recording sheet feed (i.e., the linefeed width) is set to be small, but the corresponding rotary plate with a small rotation angle intermittently. 另一方面,进行低析像度记录时,记录纸的换行宽度被设定得较大,但与之对应,旋转板125的旋转角度变大,可动支撑部的移动量也变大。 On the other hand, low-resolution printing, linefeed width of the recording paper is set to be large, but corresponding, rotation angle plate 125 becomes large, the amount of movement of the movable support portion is also increased. 由此具有以下优点:记录纸更为切实地由可动支撑部88支撑,更为准确地维持其与喷墨记录头39的距离。 Thus it has the following advantages: the recording sheet more reliably supported by the movable support portion 88, which more accurately maintain a distance of the ink jet recording head 39.

另外,例如上述导向槽143的形状不是阿基米德螺旋时,上述旋转板125有时与记录纸的换行宽度无关地,总是以恒定的旋转速度进行旋转。 Further, for example, the shape of the guide groove 143 is not the Archimedes screw, the rotary plate 125 may linefeed width of the recording paper and regardless, is always at a constant rotation speed rotation. 这并不会直接产生某些问题,但由于旋转板125以恒定速度旋转,存在可动支撑部88超过输送的记录纸的可能,此时,例如可以设定为以记录纸每换行预定次数进行一次的比率使可动支撑部88的滑动停止。 This does not directly produce certain problems, but because of the rotation plate 125 is rotated at a constant speed, there is a possibility of the movable support portion 88 of the recording paper conveyed over this time, for example, may be set to a recording paper to a predetermined number of times every linefeed the ratio of a portion supporting the movable slide 88 is stopped.

在本实施方式中,如图14及图16所示,按照上述阿基米德螺旋形成的导向槽143,以假想轴144为基准对称形成,因此可动支撑部88从初始位置(图16(a))滑动,以暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上记录纸,直接连续地伴随记录纸的输送以支撑着该记录纸的端部的状态向输送方向下游侧滑动,进而再直接连续地返回输送方向上游侧,回到上述初始位置。 In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 14 and FIG. 16, the guide grooves formed in accordance with the above-described Archimedean spiral 143 to the virtual reference axis 144 is symmetrically formed, so 88 movable from an initial position (FIG. 16 support ( a)) slides, the recording sheet temporarily went toward the upstream side in the conveying direction, is directly conveyed continuously along the recording sheet in a state of supporting the end portion of the recording paper conveying direction downstream side of the slide, which can then be returned directly conveyed continuously upstream side, back to the initial position. 因此,可动支撑部88总是准确地配置在上述初始位置。 Thus, the movable supporting portion 88 is always precisely arranged at the initial position. 这即意味着,即使在多张记录纸上进行连续记录时,也不需要分别对各记录纸进行上述初始化。 This means that, even when a plurality of recording continuous recording paper does not need to separately perform the initialization of each recording sheet. 因此具有高速进行连续记录的优点。 Thus an advantage of high-speed continuous recording.

另外,在本实施方式中,可起到如下的作用效果。 Further, in the present embodiment, the following effects can play.

在本实施方式中,输送到压印平板42上的记录纸,首先由第一固定肋102支撑,进而通过上述沟槽116输送到第二固定肋103侧。 In the present embodiment, the recording sheet conveyed to the platen 42, is first supported by the first fixing rib 102, and further fed to the second side 103 of the groove 116 by the fixing rib. 该沟槽116,特别在进行无边记录时,可接住越过记录纸的边缘从喷墨记录头39喷出的墨滴。 The groove 116, particularly when performing borderless recording, can be caught over the edge of the recording paper discharged from the ink jet recording head 39 of the ink droplets. 在该沟槽116的底部,例如铺设有片状的海绵等墨水吸收材料,由此可切实地吸收到达沟槽116内的墨滴。 At the bottom of the trench 116, for example, laying a sheet-like material such as a sponge absorbing the ink, whereby the ink droplets can be reliably absorbed in the groove 116 reaches.

如上所述,可动支撑部88通过支撑记录纸而由该记录纸覆盖,因此对记录纸喷出的墨滴不会附着到可动支撑部88上。 As described above, the movable supporting part 88 is covered by the support of the recording paper by the recording paper, the recording paper thus discharging ink droplets do not adhere to the movable support portion 88. 因此连续在记录纸上记录图像时,即使在将与该记录纸连续的下一张记录纸配置到可动支撑部88上时,也不会产生墨水弄脏该记录纸的反面的问题。 Thus continuous recording paper to record an image, even when a recording sheet disposed to the movable support portion 88 at the continuous recording sheet, a problem does not occur back of the recording paper is stained with ink.

进而,由于由可动支撑部88支撑记录纸,因此可将上述沟槽116的宽度尺寸117设定得较大。 Further, since the movable support portion 88 supports the recording sheet, thus the groove width dimension 116 of 117 is set to be large. 由此,可以实现喷墨记录头39的大型化,而且,即使使喷墨记录头39大型化,上述沟槽116也可覆盖该喷墨记录头39的喷墨区域118的整体。 Accordingly, the size can be realized an ink jet recording head 39, and, even when the size of the ink jet recording head 39, the groove 116 may cover the entire area of ​​the ink jet recording head 39 of the ink jet 118. 其结果,具有还能实现无边记录的高速化的优点。 As a result, the advantage of having a high-speed recording can achieve infinity.

在本实施方式中,上述沟槽116的宽度尺寸117(参照图9)被设定为比喷墨记录头39的喷墨区域118(参照图6)大。 In the present embodiment, the width dimension 116 of the groove 117 (see FIG. 9) is set to be larger than the area of ​​the ink jet recording head 39 of an ink jet 118 (see FIG. 6). 由此,即使没有将记录纸配置在压印平板42上时,从喷墨记录头39的所有喷嘴53喷出墨滴,这所有的墨滴均会被上述沟槽116接住。 Accordingly, even when the recording sheet is not disposed on the platen 42, ink droplets ejected from the ink jet recording head 39 of all nozzle 53, all of the ink droplets which will be the groove 116 caught. 因此,进行无边记录时,可从喷墨记录头39的所有喷嘴53喷出墨滴而向记录纸的端部进行图像记录。 Thus, when borderless recording, all of the nozzles 53 can eject ink droplets toward the end portion of the recording sheet for image recording from the ink jet recording head 39. 即,高速进行无边记录,并且对于来自所有喷嘴53的墨滴喷出不需要复杂的控制。 That is, high speed recording infinity, and does not require complicated control for ejection of ink droplets from all the nozzles 53.

换言之,假设上述沟槽116的宽度尺寸117比喷墨记录头39的喷墨区域118小,则在记录纸的输送方向的前端部分进行无边记录时,必须仅从喷墨记录头39的上游侧的喷嘴53喷出墨滴,并伴随该记录纸的输送依次从下游侧的喷嘴53也喷出墨滴,需要喷墨记录头39的复杂控制,与之相对,在本实施方式的复合机1中,不需要这种复杂控制,如上所述可以通过从所有喷嘴53喷出墨滴来进行对记录纸端部的无边记录。 In other words, assuming that width dimension of the groove 116 when ink ejection area 117 of the ink jet recording head 39 than 118 small, marginal printing is performed at the front end portion of the recording sheet conveying direction, must only the upstream side of the ink jet recording head 39 the nozzle 53 ejecting ink droplets, and the recording sheet conveyed along sequentially from the downstream side of the nozzle 53 ejecting ink droplets, the ink jet recording head requires a complicated control 39, and contrast, in the present embodiment, the multifunction peripheral 1 , the need for such complex control, as described above may be endless recording sheet edge portion of the recording by ejecting ink droplets from all the nozzles 53. 即,对于来自喷嘴53的墨滴喷出不需要进行复杂的控制,即可高速地进行无边记录。 That is, ink droplets are ejected from the nozzle 53 does not require complicated control to high speed recording infinity.

进而,上述喷嘴53的剖面形状未必是正圆,而且有时会在喷嘴53内附着有微细的灰尘,因此,存在墨滴不能笔直地从喷嘴53喷出、而沿少许倾斜方向喷出的情况。 Further, cross-sectional shape of the nozzle 53 is not necessarily a perfect circle, and may adhere to the fine dust in the nozzle 53, therefore, the presence of the ink droplets can not be ejected from the nozzle 53 straight, in the case where the oblique direction slightly ejected. 在该情况下,由于上述沟槽116的宽度尺寸117被设定得比喷墨记录头39的喷墨区域118大,因此墨滴不会附着到沟槽116的外部。 In this case, since the width dimension 116 of the groove 117 is set larger than the ink jet recording head 118 of the large ejection area 39, and therefore does not adhere to the ink droplet 116 outside of the trench. 其结果,切实地防止了记录纸的反面被墨水弄脏。 As a result, reliably prevents the reverse side of the recording paper is stained with ink.

特别是,支撑记录纸的部件是第一固定肋102、第二固定肋103及肋121,因此支撑记录纸的部件的结构极为简单,并且各肋和记录纸的接触面积较小。 In particular, the member supporting the recording sheet 102 is a first fixing rib and second fixing rib 103 and the rib 121, thus supporting the recording sheet structural member is extremely simple, and the smaller the contact area of ​​each of the ribs and the recording paper. 因此,记录纸的输送阻力较小,可更顺畅地输送记录纸。 Accordingly, the recording paper transport resistance is small, can be more smoothly conveyed recording sheet. 此外,对可动支撑部88的肋121的角部122、123进行倒角加工(参照图9),在该角部122、123形成倾斜面。 Further, corner portions of the ribs 121 supporting the movable portion 88 is chamfered (refer to FIG. 9) 122, 123, 122, 123, an inclined surface is formed at the corner portion. 由此,即使在通过了第一固定肋102的记录纸的端部与上述角部122抵接的情况下,该记录纸的端部也可顺畅地被引导到可动支撑部88上。 Accordingly, even in a case where by the end of the recording sheet 102 and the first fixing rib 122 abuts against the corner portion of the lower end portion of the recording paper can be smoothly guided to the movable support portion 88. 因此,不会因为设有可动支撑部88而妨碍记录纸的顺畅输送。 Thus, the support will not be provided with a movable portion 88 hinder the smooth conveyance of the recording paper. 此外,如上所述,对第一固定肋102及第二固定肋103的各个角部进行倒角加工,该部分作为倾斜面构成。 As described above, each corner portion of the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 102 is chamfered 103, as part of the inclined surface. 因此,即使在输送中的记录纸与第一固定肋102及第二固定肋103的角部抵接的情况下,也不会妨碍记录纸的顺畅输送。 Thus, even in the case where the recording sheet conveyed to the first fixing rib 102 and the second corner portion 103 abuts against the fixing rib, nor interfere with the smooth conveyance of the recording paper.

如图16所示,与旋转的旋转板125扣合的杆部件126,将旋转板125的旋转量以预定的倍率转换为上述可动支撑部88的输送方向的位移量。 16, the lever member 125 with the rotation of the rotary engaging plate 126, the rotary plate 125 at a predetermined amount of magnification converted to displacement amount of the movable conveying direction of the support portion 88. 由此,可动支撑部88与记录纸的输送同步地进行滑动(参照图15),并且旋转板125的旋转量被放大转换为输送方向的位移量,因此旋转板125变得小型化。 Thus, the movable portion 88 supports the recording sheet conveyance performed in synchronization with the slide (see FIG. 15), and the amount of rotation of the rotating plate 125 is amplified displacement amount converted to the conveying direction, so that the rotation plate 125 is made compact. 其结果,可以实现复合机1的更紧凑化设计。 As a result, it is possible to achieve a more compact design of the multifunction peripheral 1.

在本实施方式中,如图12所示,锁定部件139总是与旋转板125扣合,因此除了进行无边记录以外,可动支撑部88不会跟随记录纸滑动。 In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 12, the locking member 139 always engaging with the rotating plate 125, so except for marginal printing, the movable portion 88 supporting the recording sheet does not follow the slide. 这种情况下,可动支撑部88被配置在第一固定肋102和第二固定肋103之间,因此会抑制在压印平板42上输送的记录纸进入到沟槽116内。 In this case, the movable supporting portion 88 is disposed between the first fixed ribs 102 and second fixed ribs 103, thus suppressing the recording sheet 42 conveyed on the platen 116 into the groove. 并且,上述锁定部件139,在进行无边记录时从旋转板125脱离,因此,可自由地变更设定无边记录或有边记录中的任意一种。 And, the lock member 139 is disengaged from the rotating plate 125 when performing borderless recording, therefore, can be freely changed or set any one endless recording side records.

接下来,对本实施方式的变形例进行说明。 Next, a modification example of the present embodiment will be described.

图17是本实施方式的变形例的复合机1的主要部分放大透视图,是压印平板42及可动支撑部176的放大透视图。 FIG 17 is a modified embodiment of the multifunction peripheral of the present embodiment is a main portion of an enlarged perspective view, an enlarged perspective view of the platen 42 and the movable supporting portion 176.

本变形例的可动支撑部176与上述实施方式的可动支撑部88不同之处在于,上述实施方式中,如图11所示在可动支撑部88上设有杆部件126,经由该杆部件126将可动支撑部88与旋转板125连接,与之相对,在本变形例中,在可动支撑部176上设有扣合销175(扣合部),该扣合销175嵌入到旋转板125的导向槽143中;以及因此旋转板125的圆筒轴127沿主扫描方向(箭头87的方向)延伸,包含用于驱动该旋转板125的齿轮151的动力传递机构124的几何结构被改变。 The movable supporting portion 176 of this modified embodiment is different from the movable supporting portion 88 of the above embodiment in that the above-described embodiment, as shown in FIG. 11 in the movable member 126 provided on the support rod portion 88 via the rod the member 126 supporting the movable portion 125 is connected with the rotary plate 88, in contrast, in this modification, the engagement with the movable pin 175 (engaging portion) on the supporting portion 176, the engagement pin 175 fitted into geometry and therefore the rotating plate 127 of the cylindrical shaft 125 extending in the main scanning direction (arrow 87), comprising a power transmission mechanism for driving the rotary gear 125 of the plate 151, 124; a guide groove 143 of the rotating plate 125 Was changed. 另外,对于其他结构与上述实施方式相同。 Further, the other construction of the embodiment.

即,在本实施例中,旋转板125的扣合面142(上述实施方式中为“反面”)大致与压印平板42的上表面109垂直,在可动支撑部176的侧面突出设置的扣合销175与设于旋转板125的扣合面142上的导向槽143嵌合。 That is, in the present embodiment, the engaging surface 142 of the rotating plate 125 (the above-described embodiment is "negative") and a substantially flat upper surface 42 of platen 109 vertically, the movable side supporting portions 176 provided in a protruding buckle engagement pin 175 engaged with the guide grooves 143 on the engagement surface 142 provided on the rotating plate 125. 并且,该扣合销175可沿导向槽143滑动。 Further, the engagement pin 175 can slide along the guide groove 143. 因此,在本变形例中,通过旋转板125旋转,可动支撑部176经由上述扣合销175滑动,切实地通过肋121支撑在压印平板42上输送的记录纸。 Accordingly, in this modification, the rotation of the rotating plate 125, the movable supporting portion 176 slides via the engagement pin 175, the rib 121 is supported reliably by the recording sheet conveyed on the platen 42. 并且,可动支撑部176经由上述扣合销175滑动,因此具有使驱动可动支撑部176的连动机构105的结构变得简单的优点。 The movable supporting portion 176 slides via the engagement pin 175, and therefore the interlocking structure having the driving mechanism portion 176 of the movable support 105 becomes simplified.

与上述第一实施方式同样地,在进行图像记录时,首先,为了将放置在供纸盘20上的记录纸输送到纸张输送路径23上,控制部64驱动LF马达71以旋转供纸辊25。 The same manner as in the first embodiment, during image recording, first, in order to be placed on the paper feed tray 20 is conveyed to the recording sheet conveying path 23, the control unit 64 drives the LF motor 71 to rotate the paper feed roller 25 . 供纸时,反转驱动LF马达71,通过传递该驱动,使供纸辊25向输送记录纸的方向旋转,输送辊60及排纸辊62向与输送方向相反的方向旋转。 When the paper feeding LF inversion driving motor 71, the driving by passing the sheet feeding roller 25 is rotated in the direction of conveying the recording sheet, the conveying roller 60 and discharge roller 62 rotated in the direction opposite to the conveying direction. 从供纸盘20输送到纸张输送路径23的记录纸,以沿纸张输送路径23从下方向上方反转的方式进行输送,其前端与记录传感器95抵接,进而通过输送与输送辊60及夹紧辊抵接。 From the feed tray 20 conveyed to the sheet conveying path of the recording sheet 23 to the sheet conveying path 23 along the conveyance direction is reversed from the above embodiment, the tip 95 abuts against the recording transducer, and further conveyed by the conveyance roller 60 and clamp immediately roller contact. 输送辊60向与输送方向相反的方向旋转,因此记录纸在其前端与输送辊60及夹紧辊抵接的状态下进行定位处理。 The conveying roller 60 is rotated in the direction opposite to the conveying direction, the recording sheet thus treated is positioned at its front end to the conveying roller 60 and the pinch roller contact state. 该定位位置如图15中参照标号174所示。 The position location reference numeral 174 in FIG. 15 in FIG. 记录纸的定位处理结束后,控制部64正转驱动LF马达71。 After completion of positioning processing of the recording sheet, the control section 64 drives the LF motor 71 forward. 由此,定位处理后的记录纸由输送辊60及夹紧辊夹持,如该图中线图167所示在压印平板42上输送。 Accordingly, the recording sheet after the positioning processing by the conveying roller 60 and the pinch roller holder, as shown in FIG line 167 in FIG. 42 transported on the platen.

进行无边记录时,可动支撑部88跟随记录纸的输送而滑动。 When recording endless, conveyor 88 may be slidably movable to follow the recording paper support portions. 详细地说,将记录纸配置在上述定位位置174时,如上所述,可动支撑部88位于压印平板42的中央,如图23所示,摆动部件226的基端部146,被配置在旋转板225的导向槽143的预定位置(与图14中参照标号165所示的位置相同的位置:初始位置)。 In detail, the recording sheet 174 disposed at the positioning position, as described above, the movable supporting portion 88 located at the center of the platen 42, 23, the base end portion 146 of the swing member 226 is disposed predetermined rotational position of the guide groove 143 of the plate 225 (the same reference numeral 14 as shown in FIG position 165: an initial position).

以输送辊60为基准将记录纸246的前端定位后,如图15的线图168所示间歇驱动LF马达71,将记录纸246输送到压印平板42上的记录位置。 After the transport roller 60 at the distal end of the positioning reference will recording sheet 246, the line 168 of FIG. 15 shown in the intermittent driving the LF motor 71, the recording sheet 246 conveyed to the recording position on the platen 42. 其后,如线图169所示,CR马达73也在预定的时序驱动。 Thereafter, as shown in line 169, CR motor 73 are driven at a predetermined timing. 由此,滑架38沿主扫描方向滑动,与输入部件224抵接。 Accordingly, the carriage 38 slides in the main scanning direction, the input member 224 comes into contact. 此时的滑架38的滑动量的控制、即CR马达73的驱动控制,由上述控制部64进行。 At this time, the slide carriage 38 to control the amount, i.e., drive control of the CR motor 73 is performed by the control unit 64.

滑架38这样滑动并推压输入部件224时,旋转板225向图23中右方旋转,如图24(a)所示,可动支撑部88向输送方向上游侧移动。 224 and the slide carriage 38 so that the input member is pressed, the rotating plate 225 is rotated to the right in FIG. 23, FIG. 24 (a), the movable-side movement of the support portion 88 upstream in the conveying direction. 并且,旋转板225的旋转角度达到90°时,可动支撑部88达到上述第一位置,迎上记录纸146。 Further, when the rotation angle of plate 225 reaches 90 °, the movable supporting portion 88 reaches the first position, the recording sheet 146 went up.

其后,在记录图像的同时,滑架38滑动,推压输入部件224。 Thereafter, while recording the image, the carriage 38 slides, the pressing member 224 input. 由此,旋转板225在图23中进一步向右方旋转。 Thus, the rotating plate 225 is further rotated in the right direction in FIG. 23. 旋转板225进一步向右方旋转时,可动支撑部88,如图24(b)所示,以支撑着记录纸146的前端部的状态跟随该记录纸146向输送方向下游侧移动。 Plate 225 is further rotated rightward rotation of the movable support portion 88, (b), the state to support the front end portion of the recording sheet 146 in FIG. 24 follows the recording sheet 146 moves to the downstream side in the conveying direction. 并且,旋转板125的旋转角度达到180°时,如该图(c)所示,可动肋104从上述第一位置到达上述初始位置(沟槽116的中央部)。 Further, when the rotation angle of the plate 125 reaches 180 °, as in FIG. (C), the movable rib 104 reaches the initial position (the central portion of the groove 116) from the first position.

上述旋转板125的旋转角度变为180°、可动支撑部88移动到第一固定肋102和第二固定肋103之间时,该可动支撑部88保持在该位置。 The rotation angle of the rotating plate 125 becomes 180 °, when the movable supporting part 88 moves between the first fixed ribs 102 and second fixed ribs 103, the movable supporting section 88 held in this position. 而如图25(a)所示,将记录纸246向输送方向输送的同时进行图像记录。 While FIG. 25 (a), the recording sheet 246 conveyed in the conveying direction of the image recording. 如此,作为输送记录纸246同时保持可动支撑部88的手段,控制其滑动距离,使保持喷墨记录头39的滑架38不与输入部件224抵接即可。 Thus, as the recording sheet 246 conveyed while maintaining the movable portion 88 of the support means, which control the sliding distance, holding the ink jet recording head 39 of the carriage 38 does not contact the input member 224 to comes.

如图25(b)所示,输送记录纸246、并使该记录纸246的后端部移动到可动支撑部88上时,可动支撑部88再次向输送方向滑动,如该图(c)所示,以支撑着记录纸246的后端部的状态跟随该记录纸246向输送方向下游侧移动。 FIG. 25 (b), the conveying recording sheet 246, and the rear end portion of the recording sheet 246 is moved to the support when the movable portion 88, the movable support portion 88 slides in the feeding direction again, as in FIG. (C ), the state to support the rear end portion of the recording sheet 246 follows the recording sheet 246 in the conveying direction downstream side. 具体地说,再次通过滑架38的滑动推压上述输入部件224,使旋转板225向图23中右方旋转,从而使可动支撑部进一步向输送方向下游侧移动。 More specifically, the carriage 38 pushes the slide member pressing the input 224, the rotating plate 225 is rotated to the right in FIG. 23, the movable support portion such that the further downstream side in the conveying direction again. 并且,旋转板225的旋转角度达到270°时,可动支撑部88到达上述第二位置。 And, when the rotation angle of the rotating plate 225 reaches 270 °, the movable supporting portion 88 reaches the second position. 如此,作为使停止在第一固定肋102和第二固定肋103之间(初始位置)的可动支撑部88再次移动的手段,控制该喷墨记录头39的滑动距离,使保持喷墨记录头39的滑架38再次与输入部件224抵接即可。 Thus, as a means to stop so that between the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 102 moves again 10388 (initial position) of the movable support unit, the control slide distance of the ink jet recording head 39, holding the ink jet recording the head 39 of the carriage 38 again to the input member 224 comes into contact.

排出记录纸246时,保持喷墨记录头39的滑架38使上述输入部件224滑动到预定的位置(限制解除位置)。 When discharging the recording sheet 246, holding the ink jet recording head 39 of the carriage 38 so that the input member 224 is slid to a predetermined position (restriction release position). 此时,通过控制上述CR马达的驱动,使滑架38滑动到预定的位置,从而上述输入部件224滑动到限制解除位置。 At this time, by controlling the driving of the CR motor, the carriage 38 slides to a predetermined position, so that the input member 224 is slid to the restriction release position. 具体地说,如图23所示,输入部件224向箭头233的方向滑动,限制解除臂232推压抵接销242。 Specifically, as shown, the input member 224 is slid in the direction of arrow 233 in FIG. 23, the restriction release arm 232 abuts pin 242 is pressed. 由此,旋转限制部件227抵抗弹簧244的弹力而向左方旋转,解除旋转板225的旋转限制。 Accordingly, the rotation restricting member 227 against the force of the spring 244 and the leftward rotation, the rotation restricting release of the rotating plate 225. 如上所述,伴随旋转板225的旋转在上述弹簧部件内蓄积变形能,因此通过解除旋转板225的旋转限制,该变形能释放,其结果,旋转板225反向(图23中左方)旋转。 As described above, with the rotation of the rotating plate 225 is accumulated in the spring member can be deformed, thus releasing the rotation restriction by the rotation of the plate 225, the deformation energy release, as a result, the reverse rotation plate 225 (FIG. 23 left) . 上述弹簧部件中蓄积的变形能,源于旋转板225的旋转,因此上述变形能全部释放时,旋转板225向左方旋转270°。 When the spring member of the deformation energy accumulated, due to rotation of the rotating plate 225, so that the modification can be fully released, the rotating plate 225 leftward rotation of 270 °. 即,可动支撑部88再次回复到上述初始位置。 That is, the movable supporting portion 88 return to the initial position again.

在本实施方式的复合机1中,在压印平板42上输送的记录纸246由该压印平板42支撑,喷墨记录头39在主扫描方向上滑动同时喷出墨滴,从而在记录纸246上记录图像。 In the multifunction peripheral 1 according to the present embodiment, the ink jet recording head 39 is slidably supported by the platen 42 in the main scanning direction of the recording sheet 42 conveyed on the platen 246 while ejecting ink droplets, whereby recording sheet recording the image 246. 在记录图像的同时进一步沿输送方向输送该记录纸246,但此时,如图24及图25所示,可动支撑部88以支撑着记录纸246的状态向输送方向滑动。 While the recorded image is further conveyed in the conveying direction of the recording sheet 246, but this time, as shown in FIG. 24 and FIG. 25, the movable supporting portion 88 in a state supported by the recording sheet 246 to slide in the conveying direction. 即,该记录纸246的端部在记录图像时总是由可动支撑部88支撑,因此,不会相对于输送方向弯曲。 That is, the end portion of the recording sheet 246 at the time of the recording image is always supported by the movable support portion 88, therefore, it does not bend relative to the conveying direction. 因此,如本实施方式所述,即使在第一固定肋102和第二固定肋103之间形成了上述沟槽116(参照图18及图19),记录纸246也不会向该沟槽116侧下垂,该记录纸246和喷墨记录头39的距离保持恒定。 Therefore, as the embodiment according to the present embodiment, even between the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 102 is formed above the trenches 103 116 (see FIG. 18 and FIG. 19), the recording sheet 246 to the groove 116 is not lateral droop distance of the recording paper 246 and the inkjet recording head 39 remains constant. 其结果,复合机1和上述第一实施方式一样地可进行高画质打印。 As a result, the multifunction peripheral 1 and the same manner as the first embodiment can be high-quality prints.

详细的说,输送到压印平板42上的记录纸246,首先由第一固定肋102支撑,进而通过上述沟槽116输送到第二固定肋103侧。 In detail, the recording sheet conveyed to the platen 42 246, a first fixing rib 102 by a first support, a second side 103 and further supplied to the groove 116 by the fixing rib. 该沟槽116,特别是在进行无边记录时,可以接住越过记录纸246的边缘从喷墨记录头39喷出的墨滴。 The groove 116, particularly when performing borderless recording, the recording can be caught over the edge 246 of the sheet discharged from the ink jet recording head 39 of the ink droplets. 由此,可以防止墨水附着到记录纸246的反面侧。 This can prevent the ink adhered to the reverse side of the recording sheet 246. 记录纸246在该沟槽116上通过时,可动支撑部88跟随输送来的记录纸246而沿输送方向滑动。 When the recording sheet 246 by the groove 116, the movable support part 88 follows the recording sheet 246 conveyed to the conveying direction and slide. 即,可动支撑部88从上述第一位置到上述第二位置进行滑动的同时支撑该记录纸246。 That same time, the movable supporting part 88 slides from the first position to the second position of the recording sheet 246 is supported. 因此,如上所述,记录纸246的端部总是由可动支撑部88切实地支撑,防止记录纸246进入到上述沟槽116内。 Thus, as described above, the recording sheet 246 the end portion 88 is always reliably supported by the movable supporting part, to prevent the recording sheet 246 into the groove 116. 其结果,如上所述,记录纸246和喷墨记录头39的距离保持恒定,实现高画质打印。 As a result, as described above, the recording paper 246 and the inkjet recording head 39 is kept constant distance, high-quality prints.

如图22所示,该可动支撑部88通过旋转板225的旋转而被驱动,而该旋转板225以旋转中心轴235为中心旋转。 22, the movable support portion is driven by rotation of the rotary plate 225 is 88, the rotating plate 225 and the rotation center shaft 235 is rotated. 即,在本实施方式中,旋转板225也在配置为与压印平板42的上表面109平行的状态下旋转。 That is, in the present embodiment, the rotary plate 225 are configured to rotate in a state the upper surface 109 of the platen 42 in parallel. 因此,旋转板225有效且紧凑地配置在压印平板42的附近,其结果,实现了图像记录单元24的小型化,进而可以实现复合机1的紧凑化设计。 Thus, the rotary plate 225 is disposed efficiently and compactly near the platen 42, as a result, to achieve the miniaturization of the image recording unit 24, and thus compact design of the multifunction device 1 can be realized.

在本实施方式中,通过上述旋转限制部件227,上述旋转板225的旋转受到限制。 In the present embodiment, by the rotation restriction member 227, the rotation of the rotating plate 225 is restricted. 此时,如图22及图23所示,输入部件224和旋转限制部件227,构成使旋转板225仅向图23中右方旋转的棘轮机构。 At this time, as shown in FIG. 22 and FIG. 23, the input member 224 and the rotation restriction member 227, constituting the ratchet mechanism 225 rotate only the rotating plate 23 to the right in FIG. 因此,每当喷墨记录头39往复运动时,旋转板225向右方旋转,可动支撑部88切实地沿输送方向滑动而支撑记录纸246。 Thus, every time an ink jet recording head 39 is reciprocated rightward rotation of the rotating plate 225, the movable supporting portion 88 reliably supports the recording sheet 246 to slide along the conveying direction. 此时,由上述控制部64控制喷墨记录头39的滑动,可在喷墨记录头39每次往复时由滑架38推压输入部件224而使旋转板225旋转,此外,也可调整为,在喷墨记录头39每往复预定次数时由滑架38推压输入部件224而使旋转板225旋转。 In this case, the ink jet recording head 39 of the slide controlled by the control unit 64, the ink jet recording head 39 can be 225 per rotation of the carriage 38 is reciprocated by the pressing plate rotation input member 224, moreover, it may also be adjusted to when the ink jet recording head 39 for each predetermined number of times 225 is rotated by the reciprocation of the carriage 38 presses the input member 224 so that the rotating plate. 通过这样控制喷墨记录头39的滑动,可使记录纸246的换行宽度和可动支撑部88的滑动量同步。 By controlling the ink jet recording head 39 of the slide, the slide can amount of line feed of the recording paper 246 and the width of the movable support portion 88 in synchronization.

由于在旋转板225上形成上述形状的导向槽143,因此旋转板225旋转时,如图24及图25所示,可动支撑部88滑动,以暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上记录纸246,其后,伴随记录纸246的输送而向输送方向下游侧滑动。 Due to the shape of the above-described guide groove 143 formed on the rotating plate 225, so that the rotation plate 225 is rotated, as shown in FIG. 24 and FIG. 25, the movable portion 88 is slidably supported to temporarily went upstream side in the conveying direction of the recording paper 246, Thereafter, the recording sheet conveyed along the slide 246 toward the downstream side in the conveying direction. 由此,记录纸246的端部总是由可动支撑部88支撑,因此该记录纸246和喷墨记录头39的距离更为准确地保持恒定。 Thus, the end portion of the recording sheet 246 is always supported by the movable support portion 88, thus maintaining a constant distance from the recording paper 246 and the inkjet recording head 39 more accurately. 因此,可对记录纸246进行更高画质的记录。 Therefore, higher image quality can be recorded on the recording sheet 246.

在本实施方式中,上述导向槽143的形状也呈阿基米德螺旋,因此与以恒定速度旋转的旋转板225对应,可动支撑部88以恒定速度顺畅地跟随记录纸246的输送。 In the present embodiment, the shape of the guide groove 143 also showed a Archimedes spiral, and therefore corresponds to the rotating plate 225 rotates at a constant speed, the movable supporting portion 88 at a constant speed smoothly follows the recording sheet 246 is conveyed. 在此,若旋转板225的间歇旋转与记录纸246的换行宽度相对应,则可动支撑部88的滑动相对于记录纸246的进给同步进行,记录纸246更为切实地由可动支撑部88支撑。 Here, the intermittent rotation of the recording sheet when the linefeed width 246 corresponding to the rotating plate 225, the movable portion 88 of the slide relative to the support simultaneously the recording paper feed 246, the recording sheet 246 is more reliably supported by the movable the supporting portion 88. 因此,具有更为准确地维持喷墨记录头39和记录纸246的距离的优点。 Accordingly, an advantage to more accurately maintain the distance the ink jet recording head 39 and the recording paper 246.

在本实施方式中,在上板177和下板178之间配置有弹簧部件,因此伴随旋转板225的旋转,上述弹簧部件变形,蓄积与旋转板225的旋转角度对应的变形能,但排出记录纸246时,由上述控制部64控制喷墨记录头39的滑动,由滑架38推压的输入部件224滑动到上述限制解除位置。 In the present embodiment, between the upper plate 177 and lower plate 178 is disposed a spring member, so along with the rotation of the rotating plate 225, the spring member is deformed, the rotation angle of the rotating plate 225 is accumulated in the corresponding deformation energy, but discharging the recording 246 paper, an ink jet recording head 39 is slidably controlled by the control unit 64, the slide carriage 38 by the input member 224 is pressed into the restriction release position. 由此,解除了上述旋转板225的旋转限制,如上所述,蓄积在上述弹簧部件中的变形能被释放,旋转板225向左方旋转,其结果,可动支撑部88回复到初始位置(图18所示的位置)。 Thus, the rotation restricting the rotation of the lifting plate 225, as described above, accumulated deformation of the spring member can be released, the rotating plate 225 leftward rotation, as a result, the movable supporting portion 88 returns to the original position ( the position shown in FIG. 18). 这样,排出该记录纸246后,可动支撑部88回到初始位置,因此即使在多张记录纸246上进行连续记录时,也不需要分别对各记录纸246进行初始化,可以高速进行连续记录。 Thus, after the recording sheet 246 is discharged, the movable portion of the support 88 to the initial position, thus continuous recording even on a plurality of recording sheets 246 are not required for each of the recording sheet 246 is initialized, continuous recording can be performed at high speed .

此外,在本实施方式中,如图22及图23所示,按照上述阿基米德螺旋形成的导向槽143被形成为环状,因此可动支撑部88从上述初始位置滑动,以暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上记录纸246,直接连续地伴随记录纸246的输送以支撑着该记录纸246的端部的状态向输送方向下游侧滑动,进而直接连续地返回输送方向上游侧,回到上述初始位置。 In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 22 and FIG. 23, the guide grooves formed in accordance with the above-described Archimedean screw 143 is annularly formed, thus supporting the movable portion 88 can slide from the initial position, in order to temporarily an upstream side of the transport direction of the recording paper 246 went directly conveyed continuously along the recording sheet 246 for supporting the side sliding of the end portion 246 of the recording sheet downstream in the conveying direction, and further continuously returned directly to the upstream side in the conveying direction, back to the initial position. 因此,即使省略上述弹簧部件,可动支撑部88也可总是正确地被配置在上述初始位置。 Accordingly, even when the spring member is omitted, the movable supporting part 88 may always be correctly disposed at the initial position. 由此,即使在多张记录纸246上进行连续记录时,也不需要分别对各记录纸246进行上述初始化,可以高速进行连续记录。 Accordingly, even when the continuous recording on plural recording sheets 246, are not required for each of the recording sheet 246 above initialization, continuous recording can be performed at high speed.

此外,在本实施方式中,由可动支撑部88支撑记录纸246,因此上述沟槽116的宽度尺寸117被设定得较大。 In the present embodiment, the movable support portion 88 supports the recording sheet 246, thus the groove width dimension 116 of 117 is set large. 由此,可以实现喷墨记录头39的大型化,并且,即使喷墨记录头39大型化,上述沟槽116也可覆盖该喷墨记录头39的喷墨区域118的整体。 Accordingly, the size can be realized an ink jet recording head 39, and, even if the size of the ink jet recording head 39, the groove 116 may cover the ink ejection area of ​​the ink jet recording head 39 of the overall 118. 其结果,还实现了无边记录的高速化。 As a result, also realizes high-speed recording boundless. 特别是,由于支撑记录纸246的部件为肋,因此具有支撑记录纸246的部件的结构极为简单的优点。 In particular, since the sheet member 246 supports the recording of a rib, thus having a sheet supporting member 246 is a recording structure is extremely simplified. 进而,记录纸246和第一固定肋102、第二固定肋103及可动支撑部88(肋121)的接触面积变小,因此可以顺畅地输送记录纸246。 Further, the recording sheet 246 and the first fixed ribs 102, second fixed ribs 103 and the movable supporting portion 88 (rib 121) of the contact area becomes small, it is possible to smoothly convey the recording sheet 246.

与上述第一实施方式同样,在本实施方式中,上述沟槽116的宽度尺寸117也被设定得比喷墨记录头39的喷墨区域118大,因此即使在没有将记录纸246配置在压印平板42上时,从喷墨记录头39的所有喷嘴53喷出墨滴,这些墨滴也全部由上述沟槽116接住。 Similarly to the first embodiment, in the present embodiment, the width dimension of the groove 116 is set larger than 117 118 an ink jet recording head 39 large ink ejection area, even in the absence of the recording sheet 246 disposed when the platen 42, ink droplets ejected from the ink jet recording head 39 of all nozzle 53, these ink droplets are all caught by the groove 116. 因此,进行无边记录时,可以从喷墨记录头39的所有喷嘴53喷出墨滴而对记录纸246的端部进行图像记录。 Thus, when borderless recording, image recording may be performed on the end portion of the recording paper 246 ink droplets are ejected from the ink jet recording head 39 of the nozzle 53 in all. 即,可高速进行无边记录,并且关于来自喷嘴53的墨滴的喷出,不需要复杂的控制。 That is, recording can be performed at high speed infinity, and with respect to the ejection of ink droplets from the nozzle 53, does not require complicated control. 进而,上述喷嘴53的剖面形状未必为正圆,且有时在喷嘴53内附着有微细的灰尘,因此,有时墨滴无法笔直地从喷嘴53喷出而沿少许倾斜的方向喷出。 Further, cross-sectional shape of the nozzle 53 is not necessarily a perfect circle, and a fine dust may adhere to the nozzle 53 at, therefore, sometimes the ink droplets can not be discharged straight from the discharge nozzle 53 and a direction slightly inclined. 在这种情况下,由于上述沟槽116的宽度尺寸117设定得比喷墨记录头39的喷墨区域118大,因此墨滴不会附着在沟槽116的外部。 In this case, since the width dimension 117 of the groove 116 is set larger than 118 large ink jet recording head 39 of an ink jet region, the ink droplets 116 does not adhere to the outer trench. 其结果,切实地防止了记录纸246的反面被墨水弄脏。 As a result, the recording sheet reliably prevented from being stained with ink 246 negative.

进而,对可动支撑部88的角部122、123进行倒角加工(参照图18),在该角部122、123形成倾斜面。 Further, the movable supporting portion 122, 123 angularly chamfered portion 88 (see FIG. 18), the inclined surfaces 122, 123 are formed at the corner portion. 由此,即使在通过了第一固定肋102的记录纸246的端部与可动支撑部88的角部122抵接时,该记录纸246的端部也可顺畅地被引导到可动支撑部88的上表面。 Accordingly, even when passed through the first fixing rib and the end portion of the movable supporting portion 246 of the recording paper 102 88 122 abuts against the corner portion, the end portion of the recording sheet 246 can be smoothly guided to the movable support 88 of the upper surface portion. 因此,不会因为设有可动支撑部88而妨碍记录纸246的顺畅的输送。 Thus, the support will not be provided with a movable portion 88 hinder the smooth conveyance of the recording paper 246. 同样地,在第一固定肋102及第二固定肋103的各个角部112~115也进行倒角加工,该部分构成为倾斜面。 Likewise, the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 102 of each corner portion 103 of the 112 to 115 are also chamfered, the portion configured as an inclined surface. 因此,即使在输送中的记录纸246与上述角部112~115抵接时,也不会妨碍记录纸246的顺畅的输送。 Thus, even if the recording sheet 246 conveyed when the corner portions 112 to 115 abut, but also does not interfere with the smooth conveyance of the recording paper 246.

特别是,在本实施方式中,如上所述,通过CR马达73(参照图5)而滑动的滑架38使输入部件224滑动(参照图22及图23),通过该输入部件224的滑动使旋转板225旋转,并且通过摆动部件226将该旋转板225的旋转转换为可动支撑部88的滑动。 In particular, in the present embodiment, as described above, the CR motor 73 (see FIG. 5) and the sliding carriage 38 slides the input member 224 (see FIG. 22 and FIG. 23), through which the input member 224 slides so rotating the rotary plate 225, and the slide supporting portion 88 of the movable member 226 by the rotation conversion swinging of the rotating plate 225. 即,在本实施方式的连动机构105中,LF马达71不是可动支撑部88的直接的驱动源,因此不会妨碍记录纸246的正确的输送。 That is, even in the mechanism 105 of the present embodiment, the LF motor 71 is not directly driving source of the movable support portion 88, and therefore does not interfere with the proper conveyance of the recording sheet 246. 另外,在本实施方式中,可动支撑部88的驱动源为CR马达73,而由于CR马达73在滑架38的扫描范围外的区域(即图像记录范围外的区域)推压输入部件224,因此可确保图像记录范围内的记录纸246的正确的输送。 Further, in the present embodiment, the movable driving source support portion 88 of the CR motor 73, and since the 73 region outside the scan range of the carriage 38 of the CR motor (i.e., the region outside the image recording range) urging the input member 224 , thus ensuring proper conveyance of the recording sheet 246 within the image recording range.

另外,可动支撑部88的上述移动,在对记录纸246进行无边记录时是特别需要的,但在进行有边记录时,不需要可动支撑部88的移动。 Further, the movable portion of the movable support 88, when the recording sheet 246 is particularly desirable borderless recording, but there are side during recording, no movement of the movable portion 88 of the support. 可动支撑部88通常在图18所示的位置待机,因此在进行有边记录时,无需驱动可动支撑部88,将其固定在图18所示的位置即可。 When the movable standby position shown in FIG. 18 is generally a support portion 88, thus performing recording edged, without driving the movable support portion 88, which is fixed to a position shown in FIG. 18. 此时,作为固定可动支撑部88的手段,由控制部64调整喷墨记录头39的滑动即可。 In this case, as the fixing means for supporting the movable portion 88 is adjusted by the control unit 64 to the ink jet recording head 39 of the slide. 即,以使滑架38不与上述输入部件224抵接的方式驱动上述CR马达73即可。 That is, the carriage 38 to the input member 224 does not abut 73 to drive the CR motor.

输入部件324,如图32所示形成为大致L字状,具有第一臂329和第二臂330。 The input member 324, as shown in FIG 32 is formed as a substantially L-shaped, having a first arm 329 and second arm 330. 输入部件324被配置在主扫描方向的打印区域外(参照图27),由设于上述下板911的下表面的保持部328保持。 The input member 324 is disposed outside the print area in the main scanning direction (see FIG. 27), 328 provided on the lower surface is held by the holding portion 911 of the lower plate. 该保持部328,在本实施方式中被形成为剖面矩形的筒状,输入部件324的第一臂329可自由滑动地插通该保持部328。 The cylindrical holding portion 328, is formed as a rectangular cross-section in the present embodiment, the input member 324 of the first arm 329 is slidably inserted into the holding portion 328. 如图32及图33所示,在第一臂329的前端形成扣合爪331,进而在该扣合爪331的基端侧(第二臂330侧)形成限制解除臂332。 As shown in FIG. 32 and FIG. 33, engagement claws 331 formed at the front end of the first arm 329, and thus limit the release arm 332 is formed at the base end side (second arm 330 side) of the engagement claw 331. 该限制解除臂332如后所述用于解除上述旋转板325的旋转限制。 The restriction release arm 332 as the means for releasing the rotation restriction of the rotating plate 325. 另一方面,第二臂330与第一臂329的基端连续,相对于该第一臂329垂直。 On the other hand, the base end of the first arm 330 and second arm 329 is continuous with respect to the first arm 329 vertically. 即,如图32所示,第二臂330从驱动机构安装部308的上板910向上方延伸预定的距离,上述记录头39滑动时,扫描滑架38将第二臂330向箭头933的方向(主扫描方向)推压。 That is, as shown in FIG. 32, a second arm 330 extending a predetermined distance from the driving mechanism mounting portion 308 of the upper plate 910 upwardly, when the recording head 39 slides, the scanning direction of the second arm 330 of the carriage 933 in the arrow 38 (main scanning direction) is pressed. 另外,虽然在该图中未图示,但在上述保持部328的内部配置有施力弹簧,通过该施力弹簧的弹力对输入部件324向与箭头933相反的方向弹性施力。 Further, although not shown in the figure, but inside the holding portion 328 of the biasing spring is arranged, by the spring force of the biasing spring 324 to the input member in a direction opposite arrow 933 elastically urging. 因此,扫描滑架38向箭头933方向推压输入部件324后,从该输入部件324离开时,该输入部件324通过上述施力弹簧向与箭头933相反的方向滑动。 Therefore, the scanning of the carriage 38 presses the input member 324 toward the direction of arrow 933 when the input member 324 is moved away from the input member 324 slides in the opposite direction of the arrow 933 by the biasing spring.

旋转板325被形成为圆盘状,由旋转中心轴334可旋转地支撑。 Rotating plate 325 is formed in a disc shape, is rotatably supported by a center axis of rotation 334. 该旋转中心轴334被固定在上述框架300(具体地说为上述下板911)上,并插通旋转板325的中心。 The rotational center shaft 334 is fixed to the upper frame 300 (specifically, the lower plate 911), and inserted through the center of the rotary plate 325. 在该旋转板325的周面上连续形成多个齿335。 A plurality of teeth 335 are formed continuously on the circumferential surface of the rotating plate 325. 该齿335与上述输入部件324的扣合爪331扣合。 The engaging teeth 331 engaging pawl 335 with the input member 324. 因此,如上所述,输入部件324向箭头933的方向滑动时,旋转板325以旋转中心轴334为中心向右方(参照图33)旋转。 Thus, as described above, when the input member 324 is slid in the direction of arrow 933, the rotating plate 325 to the central axis 334 as the center of rotation to the right (see FIG. 33) is rotated. 此外,如上所述,输入部件324由于向与箭头933的方向相反的方向被弹性施力,因此向箭头933的方向被推压后,扫描滑架移动时,输入部件324向与该箭头933的方向相反的方向滑动。 In addition, the described above, since the input member 324 is biased in the direction of the arrow 933 opposite to the direction of elasticity, is pushed in the direction of arrow 933, the scanning movement of the carriage 324 to the input member to the arrow 933 sliding the opposite direction. 由此,上述扣合爪331再次和上述齿335扣合。 Accordingly, the above-described engaging claw 331 of the teeth 335 and re-engaging. 进而,该旋转板325具有圆形沟槽336(扣合部)。 Further, the rotary plate 325 has a circular groove 336 (engaging portion). 该圆形沟槽336被形成为圆环状,其中心与旋转板325的中心不同。 The circular groove 336 is formed in an annular shape, which is different from the center of the center of the rotating plate 325. 即,圆形沟槽336相对于旋转板325的中心偏心。 That is, the circular groove 336 with respect to the center of the eccentric rotating plate 325. 上述摆动部件326的基端部与该圆形沟槽336扣合。 The base end portion of the swing member 326 and the groove 336 of the circular engagement.

摆动部件326具有:由细长平板构成的主体337、设于该主体337的基端部的扣合销338、和设于前端部的扣合杆339。 Swinging member 326 has: a body formed of an elongated plate 337, disposed on the buckle body portion 337 of the proximal end of the engagement pin 338, and the engaging rod 339 disposed on the distal end portion. 该摆动部件326也可以由合成树脂或金属构成。 The pivot member 326 may be made of synthetic resin or metal. 主体337由摆动中心轴340可自由旋转地支撑。 337,340 body rotatably supported by a swing shaft. 该摆动中心轴340被固定在上述驱动机构安装部308的下板911上,插通主体337的中央部。 The swing shaft 340 is fixed to the lower mounting plate 911 of the driving mechanism portion 308, the body 337 is inserted through the central portion. 上述扣合销938被设置为从主体337向上方突出(参照图32),并嵌入上述旋转板325的圆形沟槽336中。 The above-described engagement pin 938 is provided to the main body 337 to protrude upward (see FIG. 32), and embedded in the circular groove 336 of the rotary plate 325 from. 扣合销938的外径尺寸与上述圆形沟槽336的沟槽宽度尺寸对应,扣合销938可沿着圆形沟槽336毫无松动地相对滑动。 The engagement pin 938 with the outer diameter dimension of the circular groove 336 corresponding to groove width dimension, relative to the engagement pin 938 can slide along the circular groove 336 without looseness. 这样,扣合销938沿着圆形沟槽336相对移动,从而主体337以上述摆动中心轴340为中心旋转。 Thus, the engaging pin 938 moves along the circular groove 336 relative to body 337 to the swing central shaft 340 is rotated. 即,摆动部件326以该摆动中心轴340为中心摆动,由此,设于上述主体337的前端部的扣合杆339,沿以摆动中心轴340为中心的圆弧状进行滑动。 That is, the swing members 326 to 340 swings the swing shaft, whereby, provided at the distal end portion of the buckle main body 337 of the engaging lever 339 to pivot along the arc-shaped central axis 340 as the center of sliding. 此外,上述扣合杆339与上述可动肋304的底座320连接。 Further, the engaging bar 339 and 320 is connected to the movable base 304 of the ribs. 而该底座320具有沿长度方向(即主扫描方向)延伸的长孔341,上述扣合杆339嵌入到该长孔341中。 The base 320 and having a longitudinal direction (i.e., main scanning direction) of the long hole 341 extending in the engaging rod 339 fitted into the elongated hole 341. 并且,该扣合杆339的外径尺寸,与长孔341的内径尺寸对应,扣合杆339,对于扫描方向以外的方向,在其与长孔341之间毫无松动。 Further, the outer diameter dimension of the engaging lever 339, with the inner diameter corresponding to the long hole 341, the engaging lever 339, a direction other than the scanning direction, there is no looseness between the long hole 341.

因此,如上所述,主体337摆动、扣合杆339沿以摆动中心轴340为中心的圆弧状滑动时,扣合杆339沿上述长孔341在主扫描方向上滑动,同时上述底座320向输送方向移动。 Thus, as described above, the swing body 337, 339 to slide along the arc-shaped swing shaft 340 as the center, the engaging rod 339 slides in the main scanning direction of the long hole 341 engaging the rod, while the base 320 to the conveying direction. 另外,如上所述,该底座320,由上述框架300可滑动地支撑其主扫描方向两端部,因此该底座320,在框架300的内侧,在平行于上述上表面309的假想面上向输送方向(图33中箭头922的方向)滑动。 As described above, the base 320 from the frame 300 which slidably supports both end portions in the main scanning direction, so that the base 320 inside the frame 300, conveyed to an imaginary plane parallel to the upper surface 309 of the direction (the direction indicated by arrow 922 in FIG. 33) slide. 换言之,通过上述摆动部件326摆动,上述可动肋304沿着输送方向滑动。 In other words, by swinging the swing member 326, the movable rib 304 slides along the conveying direction.

旋转限制部件327采用与上述旋转板325扣合的扣合杆。 Using the rotation regulating member 327 engaging with the rotation lever 325 engaging the plate. 如图33所示,旋转限制部件327由支撑销942可自由旋转地支撑。 As shown, the rotation restricting member 33327 by the support pin 942 rotatably supported. 该支撑销942,竖立设置于上述驱动机构安装部308的下板911上,插通上述旋转限制部件327的基端部。 The support pin 942 is erected on the lower mounting plate 911 of the driving mechanism portion 308 is inserted through the base end portion of the rotation restriction member 327. 在旋转限制部件327的前端部形成扣合爪343。 The front end portion of the rotation restricting member 327 engaging pawl 343 is formed. 该扣合爪343与旋转板325的齿335扣合,由此,旋转板325在图33中容许右旋转,但限制左旋转。 The engaging pawl 343 with the teeth 335 engaging the rotary plate 325, whereby the rotating plate 325 in FIG. 33 allow the right rotation, left rotation but limits. 该旋转限制部件327,由弹簧344向旋转板325侧弹性施力。 The rotation limiting member 327, urged by the spring 344 to the elastic rotating plate 325 side. 因此,通常旋转限制部件327和旋转板325扣合,旋转板325受到上述旋转限制。 Accordingly, the rotation restricting member 327 is typically rotating and engaging plate 325, the rotating plate 325 by the rotation restriction.

旋转限制部件327具有抵接销345。 Having a rotation restricting member 327 abuts against pin 345. 该抵接销345突出设置在旋转限制部件327上,并向下方延伸(参照图32)。 The abutment pin 345 provided on the projecting rotation regulating member 327, and extends downward (see FIG. 32). 如上所述,输入部件324向箭头933的方向滑动,但该输入部件324滑动到预定的限制解除位置时,限制解除臂332与上述抵接销345抵接,并向箭头933的方向推压。 As described above, the input member 324 slides in the direction of arrow 933, but the input member 324 is slid to a predetermined limit release position restriction release arm 332 with the abutting pin 345 abuts to the pressing direction of arrow 933. 由此,旋转限制部件327抵抗上述弹簧344的弹力而转动,扣合爪343从旋转板325离开。 Accordingly, the rotation restricting member 327 against the elastic force of the spring 344 is rotated, the engaging pawl 343 away from the rotating plate 325. 由此,解除旋转板325的旋转限制。 Thus, releasing the rotation restriction of the rotating plate 325.

在本实施方式中,上述摆动部件326的扣合销938与上述圆形沟槽336扣合,该圆形沟槽336以支撑旋转板325的中心的旋转中心轴334为中心旋转。 In the present embodiment, the swing pin 326 of the engaging member 938 and the circular engagement groove 336, the rotational center axis of the circular groove 336 to support the center of the rotary plate 325 rotates around 334. 即,相对于旋转中心轴334偏心的圆形沟槽336,以该旋转中心轴334为中心摆动旋转。 That is, with respect to the central axis of rotation of the circular groove 334 of the eccentric 336, 334 to the rotation center axis of rotation as the swing center. 而在图33中,在圆形沟槽336的右侧位置扣合有上述扣合销938。 In FIG. 33, the circular groove 336 in the right position engaging the above-mentioned engagement pin 938. 此时,可动肋304位于框架300的大致中央部,如图28所示,位于第一固定肋302和第二固定肋303之间。 At this time, the movable ribs substantially central portion 300 of the frame 304, shown in Figure 28, positioned between the first fixed ribs 302 and second fixed ribs 303. 可动肋304,通常被配置在该位置。 The movable rib 304 is generally configured at this position.

在图33中,记录头39沿主扫描方向往复移动时,输入部件324由扫描滑架38间歇地推压。 In FIG 33, when the recording head 39 reciprocates in the main scanning direction, the input member 32438 intermittently pressed by the scan of the carriage. 由此,旋转部件325按照预定的旋转角度(即按照与上述齿335的旋转进给量对应的旋转角度)间歇地向右方旋转。 Thus, the rotating member 325 a predetermined angle of rotation (i.e., rotation angle of the tooth according to the rotational feed amount corresponding to 335) intermittently rightward rotation. 旋转板325这样旋转时,上述圆形沟槽336以旋转中心轴334为中心摆动旋转,因此与上述圆形沟槽336扣合的扣合销938,伴随旋转板325的旋转向左方移动。 Thus the rotating plate 325 is rotated, the circular groove 336 in the rotation center axis 334 of rotation as the pivot center, so the circular groove 336 and engaging the engagement pin 938, with the rotary plate 325 is moved leftward. 并且,旋转板325的旋转角度达到90°(度)时,上述扣合销938伴随旋转板325的旋转开始向右方移动,向右方移动直到旋转板325的角度变为270°。 Further, when the rotation angle of the plate 325 reaches 90 ° (degrees), the above-described engagement pin 938 starts to rotate with the rotation plate 325 moves to the right, rightward movement until the angle of the rotating plate 325 becomes 270 °.

图34和图35是示意地表示记录纸的输送和可动肋的移动的关系的图。 34 and FIG. 35 is a schematic showing the relationship between the recording paper and the conveying ribs move the movable.

进一步详细的说,可动肋304,初始位于第一固定肋302和第二固定肋303之间(初始位置),但如图34(a)所示,将记录纸346向压印平板342的框架300的输送方向上游侧端部输送时,向输送方向上游侧移动以迎上记录纸346。 Further detail, the movable ribs 304, 303 located between the initial (initial position) of the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 302, but in FIG. 34 (a), the recording sheet 346 to the platen 342, when the transport direction upstream side frame 300 of the conveying end, moving toward the upstream side in the conveying direction of the recording sheet 346 went. 具体地说,如上所述(参照图3和图5),沿着输送路径23输送记录纸346,并通过输送辊60和推压辊361输送到压印平板342上。 Specifically, as described above (see FIG. 3 and FIG. 5), the recording sheet 23 conveyed along the conveying path 346, and conveyed onto the platen 342 by the conveying roller 60 and the pressing roller 361. 因此,如图32和图33所示,沿着输送路径23输送记录纸346时,驱动CR马达73,使扫描滑架38滑动。 Thus, as shown in FIG 32 and FIG 33, the recording sheet 23 conveyed along the conveying path 346, driving the CR motor 73, the scanning carriage 38 slides. 由此,上述输入部件324被推压,旋转板325在图33中向右方旋转,可动肋304向输送方向上游侧移动。 Accordingly, the input member 324 is pressed, the rotating plate 325 in FIG. 33 rightward rotation, the rib 304 can be moved in the conveying direction upstream side movement. 并且,旋转板325的旋转角度达到90°时,可动肋304到达第一位置,迎上记录纸346。 And, when the rotation angle of the plate 325 reaches 90 °, the movable rib 304 reaches the first position, the recording sheet 346 went up.

其后,在记录图像的同时使扫描滑架38滑动,推压上述输入部件324。 Thereafter, while recording the image of the scanning carriage 38 slides, the pressing member 324 of the input. 由此,旋转板325进一步向图33中右方旋转。 Thus, the rotating plate 325 is further rotated rightward in FIG. 33. 此时,上述圆形沟槽336如上所述相对于旋转中心轴334偏心,所以旋转板325进一步向右方旋转时,可动肋304如图34(b)所示,以支撑着记录纸346的前端部的状态,跟随输送来的该记录纸346向输送方向下游侧移动。 At this time, the circular groove 336 as described above with respect to the central axis of rotation of the eccentric 334, 325 so that when the rotary plate is further to the right, the movable ribs 304 in FIG. 34 (b), the recording sheet 346 to support the state the front end portion of the recording sheet 346 conveyed following the move to the downstream side to the transport direction. 并且,旋转板325的旋转角度达到180°时,如该图(c)所示,可动肋304从第一位置到达上述初始位置(沟槽316的中央部)。 Further, when the rotation angle of the plate 325 reaches 180 °, as in FIG. (C), the movable rib 304 reaches the initial position (the central portion of the groove 316) from the first position.

上述旋转板325的旋转角度变为180°、可动肋304在第一固定肋302和第二固定肋303之间移动时,该可动肋304被保持在该位置。 When the rotation angle of the rotating plate 325 becomes 180 °, the movable rib 304 moves between the first fixed ribs 302 and second fixed ribs 303, the ribs 304 are movable held in this position. 而如图35(a)所示,记录纸346沿输送方向输送的同时进行图像记录。 And FIG. 35 (a), the recording paper 346 while conveying the conveying direction for image recording. 作为这样输送记录纸346同时保持可动肋304的手段,控制该记录头39的滑动距离,使保持记录头39的扫描滑架38不与上述输入部件324抵接即可。 Examples of such a recording sheet 346 conveyed while holding the movable means of the ribs 304, the control slide distance of the recording head 39, the holding of the recording head 39 scanning the carriage 38 does not contact the input member 324 to comes.

如图35(b)所示,输送记录纸346、并使该记录纸346的后端部位于可动肋304上时,再次使可动肋304向输送方向滑动,如该图(c)所示,以支撑着记录纸346的后端部的状态,跟随输送来的该记录纸346进一步向输送方向下游侧移动。 FIG. 35 (b), the conveying recording sheet 346, and the rear end portion of the recording sheet 346 is positioned on the movable ribs 304, ribs 304 again so that the movable slide in the conveying direction, as in FIG. (C), shows, in a state of supporting the rear end portion of the recording sheet 346, conveyed to follow the recording sheet 346 is further moved downstream in the transport direction. 具体地说,驱动CR马达73(参照图5)使扫描滑架38滑动。 Specifically, driving the CR motor 73 (see FIG. 5) of the scanning carriage 38 slides. 由此,上述输入部件324被推压,旋转板325向图33中右方旋转,可动肋304进一步向输送方向下游侧移动。 Accordingly, the input member 324 is pressed, the rotating plate 325 is rotated rightward in FIG. 33, the rib 304 is further moved downstream in the transport direction of the movable side. 并且,旋转板325的旋转角度达到270°时,可动肋304到达第二位置。 And, when the rotation angle of the rotating plate 325 reaches 270 °, the movable rib 304 reaches the second position. 作为这样使位于上述第一固定肋302和第二固定肋303之间(初始位置)的可动肋304再次移动的手段,控制记录头309的滑动距离,使保持该记录头39的扫描滑架38再次与上述输入部件324抵接即可。 As such that the fixing rib 302 and the second fixing rib 303 is located between the first means (initial position) of the movable ribs 304 move again, controls the recording head 309 of the sliding distance, holding the recording head 39 scanning carriage 38 again with the input member 324 to abut.

排出记录纸346时,保持记录头39的扫描滑架38使上述输入部件324滑动到预定位置(限制解除位置)。 When the recording sheet 346 is discharged, the scanning carriage holding a recording head 39 of the input member 38 causes the slide 324 to a predetermined position (restriction release position). 该扫描滑架38的滑动,由上述CR马达(参照图5)的驱动控制进行。 The slide scanning carriage 38, is driven by the CR motor control (refer to FIG. 5). 具体地说,如图33所示,输入部件324向箭头933的方向滑动,限制解除臂332推压抵接销942。 Specifically, as shown, the input member 324 is slid in the direction of arrow 933 in FIG. 33, the release arm 332 to limit the pressing pin 942 abuts. 由此,旋转限制部件327抵抗弹簧344的弹力而向左方旋转,解除旋转板325的旋转限制。 Accordingly, the rotation restricting member 327 against the force of the spring 344 and the leftward rotation, the rotation restricting rotation of release plate 325. 伴随旋转板325的旋转,在上述弹簧部件中蓄积变形能,因此通过解除旋转板325的旋转限制,该变形能被释放,其结果,旋转板325反向(图33中左方)旋转。 With the rotation of the rotary plate 325 is accumulated in the spring member can be deformed, thus releasing by rotation of the rotation restricting plate 325, the deformation can be released, as a result, the rotating plate 325 backward (leftward in FIG. 33) is rotated. 由于上述弹簧部件中蓄积的变形能源于旋转板325的旋转,因此,上述变形能全部释放时,旋转板325向左方旋转270°。 Due to the rotation of the spring member in the deformation energy accumulated in the rotating plate 325, therefore, the above modification can be fully released, the rotating plate 325 leftward rotation of 270 °. 即,可动肋304再次回到上述初始位置。 That is, the movable ribs 304 to return to the initial position.

在本实施方式的复合机310中,在压印平板342上输送的记录纸346由该压印平板342支撑,通过使记录头39向主扫描方向滑动同时喷出墨滴,在记录纸346上记录图像。 In the composite 310 of the present embodiment, the conveyed recording sheet 342 on the platen 346 supported by the platen 342 by the recording heads 39 ejecting ink droplets while sliding the main scanning direction, the recording paper 346 recorded images. 该记录纸346,在记录图像的同时被进一步向输送方向输送,而此时,如图34和图35所示,可动肋304以支撑着记录纸346的状态向输送方向滑动(平行移动)。 The recording sheet 346 is further conveyed in the conveying direction while recording the image, but this time, as shown in FIGS. 34 and 35, the movable supporting ribs 304 in a state of the recording sheet 346 to slide (parallel movement) in the transport direction . 即,该记录纸346的端部,在记录图像时总是由可动肋304支撑,因此不会相对于输送方向弯曲。 That is, the end portion of the recording sheet 346, when the image is always recorded by the movable support ribs 304, it will not bend with respect to the conveying direction. 如本实施方式所述,即使在第一固定肋302和第二固定肋303之间形成上述沟槽316,记录纸346也不会向该沟槽316侧下垂,该记录纸346和记录头39的距离保持恒定。 316, the recording sheet 346 does not sag to the side of the trench 316, and the recording of the recording paper 346 as the embodiment according to the present embodiment, even if the groove is formed between the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 302 303 39 distance remains constant. 其结果实现了高画质印刷。 As a result, the high quality image printing.

具体地说,输送到压印平板342上的记录纸346,首先由第一固定肋302支撑,进而通过上述沟槽316输送到第二固定肋303侧。 Specifically, the recording sheet 346 conveyed on the platen 342, first supported by the first fixing rib 302, the groove 316 and further conveyed by the fixing rib 303 to the second side. 该沟槽316,特别是在进行无边记录时,可以接住越过记录纸346的边缘而从记录头39喷出的墨滴。 The groove 316, particularly when performing borderless recording, the recording sheet can be caught over the edge 346 of the ejected ink droplets from the recording head 39. 由此,可以防止墨水附着到记录纸346的反面侧。 This can prevent the ink adhered to the reverse side of the recording sheet 346. 记录纸346在该沟槽316上通过时,可动肋304跟随输送来的记录纸346向输送方向滑动。 When the recording sheet 346 by the grooves 316, the ribs 304 may be movable to follow the recording sheet 346 conveyed to the conveying direction of the slide. 即,可动肋304从上述第一位置滑动到第二位置,同时支撑该记录纸346。 That is, the movable rib 304 slides from the first position to a second position while supporting the recording sheet 346. 因此,该记录纸346的端部总是由可动肋304切实地支撑,而不会进入上述沟槽316内。 Thus, the end portion of the recording sheet 346 is always reliably supported by the ribs 304 movable within the groove without entering 316.

此外,由于用可动肋304支撑记录纸346,因此上述沟槽316的宽度可以被设定得较宽。 Further, since the movable support ribs 304 of the recording paper 346, the width of the groove 316 may be set to be wide. 由此,记录头39可大型化,即使记录头39大型化,上述沟槽316也可覆盖该记录头39的喷墨区域118的整体。 Thus, the recording head 39 can be large, even if the size of the recording head 39, the groove 316 may cover the area of ​​the ink jet recording head 39 of the 118 overall. 其结果,具有还实现了无边记录的高速化的优点。 As a result, it has also realized the high speed of the endless recorded.

特别是,由于支撑上述记录纸346的部件为肋,因此具有支撑记录纸346的部件的结构极为简单的优点。 In particular, since the support member 346 to the recording sheet ribs, thus having a sheet supporting member 346 is a recording structure is extremely simplified. 进而,由于记录纸346和第一固定肋302、第二固定肋303以及可动肋304的接触面积较小,因此可顺畅地输送记录纸346。 Further, since the recording sheet 346 and the first fixed ribs 302, second fixed ribs 303 and ribs 304 of the movable small contact area, thereby conveying the recording paper 346 smoothly.

在本实施方式中,上述沟槽316的宽度,被设定为比记录头39的喷墨区域118大(参照图6)。 In the present embodiment, the width of the groove 316, is set to be larger than the ink ejection area 118 of the recording head 39 (see FIG. 6). 由此,即使在压印平板342上没有配置记录纸346时,从记录头39的所有喷嘴(喷墨口53)喷出墨滴,这些墨滴也全部由上述沟槽316接住。 Thus, 346 even when the recording sheet is not disposed on the platen 342, all of the nozzles from the recording head (ejection port 53) 39 of ejecting ink droplets, the ink droplets which are all caught by the groove 316. 另外,可动部件位于纸的下侧,因此可动部件不会被弄湿。 Further, the movable member of the lower side of the paper, thus the movable member will not be wet. 因此,在进行无边记录时,可从记录头39的所有喷嘴喷出墨滴而对记录纸346的端部记录图像。 Thus, when performing borderless recording, the recording head for discharging ink droplets from all the nozzles 39 of recording an image on a recording sheet end portion 346. 即,可以高速进行无边记录,并且关于从喷墨口53的墨滴喷出也不需要复杂的控制。 That is, recording can be performed at high speed infinity, and with respect to ink droplets ejected from the ejection port 53 does not require a complicated control. 进而,上述喷墨口53的剖面形状未必是正圆,且有时在喷墨口53内附着有微细的灰尘,因此,有时墨滴不是从喷墨口53笔直地喷出、而是在少许倾斜的方向上喷出。 Further, cross-sectional shape of the ink discharge port 53 is not necessarily a perfect circle, and may adhere to the discharge port 53 in a fine dust, and therefore, sometimes the ink droplet discharged from a discharge port 53 is not straight, but inclined slightly the discharge direction. 即使在该情况下,由于上述沟槽316的宽度被设定得比记录头39的喷墨区域118大,因此墨滴不会附着在沟槽316的外部。 Even in this case, since the width of the groove 316 is set larger than the recording area 118 of the large ejection head 39, and therefore it does not adhere to the ink droplet 316 outside the trench. 其结果,可切实地防止记录纸346的反面被墨水弄脏。 As a result, the recording sheet can be reliably prevented from being stained with ink 346 back.

此外,在本实施方式中,对可动肋304的角部322、323进行倒角加工(参照图28),在该角部322、323形成倾斜面。 In the present embodiment, the ribs 322, 323 of the movable angularly chamfered portion 304 (see FIG. 28), the inclined surfaces 322 and 323 are formed in the corner portion. 由此,即使在通过了第一固定肋302的记录纸346的端部与可动肋304的角部322抵接时,该记录纸346的端部也可被顺畅地引导到可动肋304的上表面。 Accordingly, even when the corner portion by the end portion 304 of the movable ribs recording sheet first fixing ribs 302 346 322 abuts the end portion of the recording sheet 346 can be smoothly guided to the movable ribs 304 on the surface. 因此,不会因为设有可动肋304而妨碍记录纸346的顺畅的输送。 Thus, not because the ribs 304 provided with a movable hinder smooth conveyance of the recording paper 346. 此外,同样地,对第一固定肋302和第二固定肋303的各个角部312~315也进行倒角加工,该部分被构成为倾斜面。 Further, in the same manner, the first fixed ribs 302 and second respective corner portions 303 of the fixing ribs 312 ~ 315 are chamfered, the part is configured as an inclined surface. 因此,即使输送中的记录纸346与上述角部312~315抵接,也不会妨碍记录纸346的顺畅的输送。 Thus, even if the recording sheet is conveyed in the corner portions 346 and 312 through the contact 315, also does not interfere with the smooth conveyance of the recording paper 346.

在本实施方式中,通过设有上述驱动机构305,而如图34和图35所示,在将记录纸346输送到压印平板342上时,可动肋304,暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上该记录纸346,其后,伴随该记录纸346的输送,以支撑着记录纸346的端部的状态向输送方向下游侧滑动。 In the present embodiment, is provided by the drive mechanism 305, and FIGS. 34 and 35, when the recording sheet 346 conveyed to the platen 342, the movable rib 304 temporarily to the upstream side of the conveying direction Ying on the recording paper 346, and thereafter, the recording sheet conveyed along 346 to support the end portion of the recording sheet 346 toward the downstream side in the conveying direction of the slide. 由此,具有以下优点:记录纸346的端部切实地由可动肋304支撑,可切实地防止其在输送中进入上述沟槽316内。 Accordingly, the following advantages: the end portion of the recording paper 346 is reliably supported by the movable ribs 304, can be reliably prevented from entering the groove 316 in the conveyance.

并且,在上述驱动机构305中,如上所述,通过CR马达73(参照图5)而滑动的扫描滑架38使上述输入部件324滑动,并将该输入部件324的滑动经由旋转板325和摆动部件326转换为上述可动肋304的滑动。 Further, in the driving mechanism 305, as described above, the CR motor 73 (see FIG. 5) and the scanning carriage 38 slides so that the input member 324 slides, the sliding member 324 and the input rotation and the swing plate 325 via 326 is converted to the sliding member 304 of the movable ribs. 即,LF马达71并不是可动肋304的直接驱动源,因此具有不会妨碍记录纸346的正确的输送的优点。 That is, the LF motor 71 is not directly drive source of the movable ribs 304, thus having the advantage of not hinder proper recording sheet 346 conveyed. 另外,在本实施方式中,可动肋304的驱动源为CR马达73,但CR马达73在扫描滑架38的扫描范围外的区域(即图像记录范围外的区域)推压上述输入部件,因此可确保图像记录范围内的记录纸346的正确输送。 Further, in the present embodiment, the movable rib driving source 304 to the CR motor 73, but the 73 region outside the scan range of the scanning carriage 38 of the CR motor (i.e., the region outside the image recording range) urging the input member, thus ensuring proper conveyance of the recording paper 346 within the image recording range. 当然,如果能够确保记录纸346的正确的输送,也可将CR马达73或LF马达71用作可动肋304的直接驱动源。 Of course, if we can ensure correct conveyance of the recording sheet 346, may also be CR LF motor 73 or motor 71 as a driving source of the movable ribs 304 directly.

此外,在本实施方式中,通过上述旋转限制部件327,上述旋转板325的旋转受到限制。 In the present embodiment, by the rotation restriction member 327, the rotation of the rotating plate 325 is restricted. 此时,如图32和图33所示,上述输入部件324和旋转限制部件327,构成使旋转板325仅向图33中右方旋转的棘轮机构。 At this time, as shown in FIGS. 32 and 33, the input member 324 and the rotation restriction member 327, the rotating plate constituting the ratchet mechanism 325 rotate only to the right in FIG. 33. 因此,每当记录头39往复运动时,旋转板325向右方旋转,可动肋304切实地向上述方向移动而支撑记录纸346。 Thus, every time the recording head 39 is reciprocated rightward rotation of the rotating plate 325, the movable ribs 304 reliably moves in the direction of the recording sheet 346 is supported. 此时,由上述控制部64控制记录头39的滑动,可以在记录头39每往复一次时使旋转板325旋转,也可以调整为每往复多次使旋转板325旋转。 At this time, the recording head 39 is slidably controlled by the control unit 64, when the rotating plate may be in the recording head 39 is reciprocated once every 325 of rotation may be adjusted a plurality of times for each reciprocating rotating plate 325 rotates.

此外,在上述上板910和下板911之间配置有弹簧部件,因此伴随旋转板325的旋转,上述弹簧部件变形,蓄积与旋转板325的旋转角度对应的变形能。 Further, between the upper plate and the lower plate 910 is disposed a spring member 911, so with the rotation of the rotating plate 325, the spring member is deformed, the rotation angle of the rotating plate 325 is accumulated in the corresponding deformation energy. 而由于上述控制部64控制记录头39的滑动,因此在需要时使上述输入部件324滑动到限制解除位置。 And because the control unit 64 controls the recording head 39 slides, thus the input member 324 is slid to the required limit when releasing position. 由此解除上述旋转板325的旋转限制,容许旋转板325的自由旋转。 Thereby releasing the rotation restriction of the rotating plate 325, allowing the free rotation of the rotating plate 325. 即,上述弹簧部件中蓄积的变形能被释放,因此旋转板325向左方旋转,其结果,可动肋304回到初始位置(图28所示的位置)。 That is, the spring member can be released accumulated deformation, so that the rotation plate 325 leftward rotation, as a result, the movable rib 304 returns to the initial position (position shown in FIG. 28). 这样使可动肋304回到初始位置的手段,也不是利用CR马达73或LF马达71,是极为简单的结构,因此具有不会妨碍记录纸346的正确的输送的优点。 This allows the movable means to return to the initial position of the ribs 304, nor is the use of the CR motor 73 and LF motor 71, the structure is extremely simple, and therefore does not interfere with the advantage of having the correct recording sheet 346 conveyed.

另外,可动肋304的上述移动,特别在对记录纸进行无边记录时是必要的,但在不进行无边记录时,不需要可动肋304的移动。 Further, the movement of the movable ribs 304, particularly when it is necessary to record recording paper infinity, infinity but when not recording, without moving the movable rib 304. 如上所述,可动肋304通常在图28所示的位置待机,因此在不进行无边记录时,不用驱动可动肋304,而将其固定在图28所示的位置即可。 As described above, the movable stand ribs 304 at a position generally shown in FIG. 28, and therefore when the recording is not performed infinity without driving the movable ribs 304, the position can be fixed as shown in FIG. 28. 此时,作为固定可动肋304的手段,由控制部64调整记录头39的滑动即可。 In this case, as the fixing means of the movable ribs 304, adjustment of the recording head 39 can slide by the control unit 64. 即,驱动上述CR马达73,使扫描滑架38不与上述输入部件324接触即可。 That is, driving the CR motor 73, the scanning carriage 38 is not in contact with the input member 324 to.

<第四实施方式> & Lt; Fourth Embodiment & gt;

本实施方式的复合机410的控制部64的构成,在和第一实施方式的关系上与图8所示的构成相同。 The multifunction peripheral according to the embodiment 64 of the control unit 410 is constituted, in the embodiment and the first embodiment is configured the same as the relationship shown in FIG. 8.

本实施方式的复合机410中,可通过操作上述操作面板20选择图像记录的方式。 Compound 410 of the present embodiment may be selected 20 by way of the image recording operation the operation panel. 即,通过用户操作操作面板20,可任意选择所谓有边记录或无边记录。 That is, the user operates the operation panel 20, there may be arbitrarily selected a so-called edge recording or recording infinity. 通过操作面板20设定记录方式时,从ASIC 70向CPU 65发送用于指示记录方式的信号。 When the recording mode is set by the operation panel 20 is transmitted from the ASIC 70 to CPU 65 a signal indicating the recording mode. CPU 65接收该信号,向上述驱动电路74及驱动电路75发出用于驱动CR马达73及记录头39的命令。 CPU 65 receives the signal, issues a command for driving the CR motor 73 and the recording head 39 to the drive circuit 74 and the driving circuit 75. 具体地说,进行了无边记录的设定时,上述CR马达73被驱动,以使上述扫描滑架38推压上述输入部件424。 Specifically, when the recording was set to infinity the CR motor 73 is driven, so that the scanning of the carriage 38 presses the input member 424.

如图26所示,上述控制部64由主基板982构成,从该主基板982通过扁平电缆83向记录头39发送记录用信号等。 26, the control unit 64 is constituted by a main substrate 982, recording signal or the like sent to the recording head 39 from the main substrate 982 through a flat cable 83. 扁平电缆83呈薄带状,用聚酯薄膜等合成树脂薄膜覆盖用于传送电信号的导体而使其绝缘,该扁平电缆83电连接主基板982和记录头39的控制基板(未图示)。 Form of a thin strip-like flat cable 83, a synthetic resin film such as polyester film conductors for transmitting electrical signals of the cover and insulate them, the flat cable 83 is electrically connected to the control board and the main board 982 of the recording head 39 (not shown) . 此外,扁平电缆83从扫描滑架38向往复移动方向导出,沿上下方向曲折为大致呈U字形状。 In addition, the flat cable 83 from the scanning carriage 38 moves complex derived longing direction, meandering in the vertical direction is substantially U-shaped. 该大致U形状的部分,并未固定在其他部件上,而是跟随扫描滑架38的往复移动而改变姿势。 This portion is substantially U-shaped, not fixed to the other member, but reciprocation scanning of the carriage 38 to follow the changed position.

在该实施方式的复合机410中,记录方式被设定为无边记录时,记录头39沿主扫描方向往复移动,由扫描滑架38间歇或连续地推压输入部件424(参照图36)。 When the record is set to infinity in 410, the recording mode of the multifunction peripheral of this embodiment, the recording head 39 reciprocates in the main scanning direction, the scanning carriage 38 is intermittently or continuously urging the input member 424 (see FIG. 36). 由此,如图39所示,旋转板425按照预定的旋转角度、即按照与上述齿435的旋转进给量对应的旋转角度间歇地逆时针旋转。 Thus, as shown in FIG. 39, the rotating plate 425 by a predetermined rotational angle, i.e. the angle of rotation according to the rotation of the rotary feed tooth 435 corresponding to intermittently counterclockwise. 旋转板425这样旋转时,如图40所示,上述扣合槽493以旋转中心轴834为中心旋转,因此,与该扣合槽493扣合的销495,伴随旋转板425的旋转向径向外侧移动(参照图42)。 Thus the rotating plate 425 is rotated, as shown in FIG. 40, the engagement groove 493 above the rotation center axis 834 of rotation as the center, therefore, engagement with the engagement groove 493 of the pin 495, with rotation of the rotary plate 425 in the radial direction moves outward (see FIG. 42). 并且,旋转板425的旋转角度达到90°(度)时,上述扣合销495伴随旋转板425的旋转开始向相反方向(径向内侧)移动,向该方向移动直至旋转板425的旋转角度达到270°为止。 Further, when the rotation angle of the plate 425 reaches 90 ° (degrees), the above-described engagement pin 495 along rotary plate 425 starts moving in the opposite direction (radially inward), this direction until the rotation angle reaches 425 plate 270 ° so far. 此外,如图40所示,旋转板425旋转时,上述扣合槽492以旋转中心轴834为中心旋转,因此与扣合槽492扣合的销494伴随旋转板425的旋转向径向外侧移动(参照图41)。 Further, as shown in FIG. 40, when the rotation of the rotating plate 425, the engagement groove 492 above the rotation center axis 834 is rotated, thus engaging with the engagement groove 492 of the pin 494 is rotated along with the rotating plate 425 moves radially outward (see FIG. 41). 并且,即使旋转板425的旋转角度超过90°,由于上述扣合槽492的圆弧部452的曲率半径恒定,因此上述扣合销494无论旋转板425如何旋转均不会在径向上移动。 Further, even if the rotation angle of the rotating plate 425 exceeds 90 °, because the arc portion 492 above the engagement groove 452 of constant radius of curvature, so the above engaging pin 494 regardless of how to rotate the rotating plate 425 will not move in the radial direction.

图43是按(a)~(d)的顺序表示记录纸输送时可动肋404及限制部件484、485的移动的图。 FIG 43 is a sequence according to (a) ~ (d) represents the movable FIG ribs 404 and movable member 484, 485 to limit the transport of the recording paper.

如该图(a)及图36所示,可动肋404,通常位于第一固定肋402和第二固定肋403之间(初始位置),但如图43(b)所示,将记录纸输送到压印平板442的输送方向上游侧端部时,向输送方向上游侧移动以迎上记录纸。 As FIG. (A) and FIG. 36, the movable ribs 404, usually located at (initial position) and the second fixing rib 402 between the first fixing rib 403, but in FIG. 43 (b), the recording paper is conveyed to the platen transport direction upstream side end portion 442, moves to the upstream side in the conveying direction of the recording paper went. 具体地说,以第一实施方式中与图3和图5的关系进行说明那样,记录纸沿着输送路径23进行输送,并通过输送辊60及推压辊361被输送到压印平板442上。 Specifically, in relation to the first embodiment of FIG. 3 and FIG. 5 is described above, the recording sheet is conveyed along the conveying path 23, and the pressing roller 60 and is conveyed to the platen 361 by the conveying roller 442 . 该记录纸沿着输送路径23进行输送时,驱动上述CR马达,使扫描滑架38滑动。 Along the transport path of the recording paper 23 is transported, driving the CR motor, the scanning carriage 38 slides. 由此,如图36所示,上述输入部件424被推压,上述旋转板425在图40中顺时针旋转,可动肋404向输送方向上游侧移动。 Accordingly, as shown in Figure 36, the input member 424 is pressed, the rotating plate 425 in FIG. 40 in a clockwise rotation, the movable rib 404 moves in the conveying direction upstream side. 并且,旋转板425的旋转角度达到90°时,可动肋404到达压印平板442的输送方向上游侧端部,迎上上述记录纸。 Further, when the rotation angle of the plate 425 reaches 90 °, the rib 404 reaches the movable platen 442 in the conveying direction upstream side end portion, went up the recording sheet.

通过使上述旋转板425这样旋转,如图39及图40所示,滑动部件447、448相互接近分离,其结果,如图43(b)所示,一对限制部件484、485分离。 By this rotation of the rotating plate 425, as shown in FIGS. 39 and 40, the slide members 447, 448 toward and away from each other, as a result, as shown in FIG 43 (b), a pair of restriction members 484, 485 separate. 即,各限制部件484、485向与记录纸的输送方向垂直的方向(图36中箭头434的方向)移动,而从压印平板442上退避。 That is, each of the regulating member 484, 485 in a direction perpendicular to the conveying direction of the recording paper (the direction indicated by arrow 434 in FIG. 36) movement, and is retracted from the platen 442.

其后,在记录图像的同时由扫描滑架38推压上述输入部件424,使旋转板425进一步旋转。 Thereafter, while the image recording by the scanning of the carriage 38 presses the input member 424, the rotating plate 425 is further rotated. 由此,可动肋404,以支撑着记录纸的前端部的状态跟随输送来的该记录纸向输送方向下游侧移动。 Accordingly, the movable ribs 404, the state to support the front end portion of the recording sheet conveyed to follow the movement of the recording sheet conveyance direction downstream side. 并且,旋转板425的旋转角度达到180°时,如图43(c)所示,可动肋404到达上述初始位置(沟槽416的中央部)。 Further, when the rotation angle of the plate 425 reaches 180 °, FIG. 43 (c), the movable rib 404 reaches the initial position (the central portion of the groove 416). 此时,可动肋404以保持在该初始位置的状态继续进行图像记录。 At this time, the movable ribs 404 to maintain a state of the initial position to continue recording the image. 作为这样在输送记录纸的同时保持可动肋404的手段,控制记录头39的滑动距离,使保持该记录头39的扫描滑架38不与上述输入部件424抵接即可。 As the same time so that the recording sheet conveyance ribs holding the movable means 404 controls the recording head 39 from the slide, the holding of the recording head 39 scanning the carriage 38 does not contact the input member 424 to comes.

该记录纸的后端部被输送到可动肋404上时,再次使可动肋404向输送方向滑动,以支撑着该记录纸的后端部的状态而跟随输送来的该记录纸向输送方向下游侧进一步移动。 When the rear end of the recording sheet is conveyed to the movable ribs 404, ribs 404 again so that the movable slide in the conveying direction, the state to support the rear end portion of the recording sheet is conveyed to follow the conveyance of the recording paper further movement downstream side. 具体地说,由上述扫描滑架38推压上述输入部件424,使旋转板425进一步旋转,使可动肋404进一步向输送方向下游侧移动。 Specifically, the scanning by the carriage 38 presses the input member 424, so that the rotating plate 425 is further rotated, the movable ribs 404 further downstream side in the conveying direction. 并且,旋转板425的旋转角度达到270°时,如该图(d)所示,可动肋404到达上述输送方向下游侧端部。 Further, the plate 425 when the rotation angle reaches 270 °, as in FIG. (D), the movable rib 404 reaches the downstream end portion of the conveyance direction. 作为这样再次使位于上述初始位置的可动肋404移动的手段,控制记录头39的滑动距离,使保持该记录头39的扫描滑架38再次与上述输入部件424抵接即可。 Such re-positioned so that the initial position of the movable rib means 404 moves the control slide from the recording head 39, holding the recording head 39 scanning of the carriage 38 with the input member 424 comes into contact again.

进行了图像记录的记录纸排出后,保持记录头39的扫描滑架38使上述输入部件424移动到上述限制解除位置。 After recording an image recording sheet is discharged, the scanning carriage holding a recording head 39 of member 38 so that the input 424 moves to the restriction releasing position. 该扫描滑架38的滑动由上述CR马达73的驱动控制进行。 The sliding carriage 38 is scanned by the drive control of CR motor 73 is performed. 具体地说,如图39所示,输入部件424向箭头434(参照图36)的方向滑动,限制解除臂432解除扣合爪443和旋转板425的齿435的扣合。 Specifically, as shown in FIG. 39, the input member 424 slides in the direction of arrow 434 (see FIG. 36), limiting the release arm 432 is released and the engagement pawls 443 of the rotating plate 425 engaging the teeth 435. 由此,解除旋转板425的旋转限制。 Thus, releasing the rotation restriction of the rotating plate 425. 如上所述,伴随旋转板425的旋转而在上述涡簧449中蓄积变形能,因此通过解除旋转板425的旋转限制,该变形能被释放,其结果,旋转板425向相反方向(图39中顺时针方向)旋转。 As described above, with the rotation of the rotating plate 425 and stored in the above-described scroll spring 449 can be deformed, thus releasing by rotation of the rotation restricting plate 425, the deformation can be released, in the opposite direction 425 (FIG. 39 As a result, the rotating plate clockwise direction). 该变形能全部释放时,旋转板425顺时针旋转270°,可动肋404再次回到上述初始位置,并且上述限制部件484、485再次重叠于上述压印平板442的上表面409。 The deformability when fully released, the rotary plate 425 rotating clockwise 270 °, the movable ribs 404 to return to the initial position, the restriction member 484, 485 and again 409 superposed on the upper surface of the platen 442 above.

在本实施方式的复合机410中,将输送记录纸输送到压印平板442上,记录头39沿主扫描方向滑动的同时喷出墨滴,从而在该记录纸上记录预定的图像。 In the composite 410 of the present embodiment, the recording sheet is conveyed to the platen 442, the recording head 39 in the main scanning direction while sliding ejecting ink droplets, thereby recording the predetermined image on the recording paper. 通过上述操作面板20设定有边记录时,不用操作上述输入部件424,限制部件484、485被配置在压印平板442上(参照图36)。 When the recording side through the operation panel 20 is set, the input member 424, regulating member 484, 485 is disposed on the platen 442 (refer to FIG. 36) do not operate. 即,限制部件484、485与传送到压印平板442上的记录纸的边缘部重叠。 That is, the regulating member 484, 485 overlaps with the edge portion of the platen to transfer the recording sheet 442 on. 因此,即使在输送来的记录纸发生初始变形的情况下,此外即使在记录中记录纸产生了起波(コツクリング)现象,也可将该记录纸和记录头39间的距离限制在一定范围内。 Therefore, even when the conveyed recording sheet occurs initially deformed, furthermore even if the recording sheet in the recording generated from wave (U-tsu ku Surlyn Corning) phenomenon, the distance 39 of the recording sheet and the recording head can be limited within a certain range . 另一方面,通过操作面板20设定为无边记录时,如图43所示,限制部件484、485从压印平板442上退避,因此在压印平板442上输送的记录纸和限制部件484、485不会重叠。 On the other hand, through the operation panel 20 is set to infinity recording, 43, the restriction member 484, 485 is retracted from the platen 442, thus conveyed recording sheet 442 on the platen 484 and the regulating member, 485 do not overlap. 因此,在进行无边记录时,从记录头39喷出的墨滴切实地到达记录纸的上述边缘部。 Thus, when performing borderless recording, ink droplets ejected from the recording head 39 reliably reaches the edge portion of the recording sheet.

这样,在本实施方式的复合机410中,通过设有限制部件484、485,在进行有边记录时可将记录纸和记录头39的距离限制在一定范围内,即使在记录纸发生了初始变形的情况下、此外即使产生了起波现象,也可进行鲜明的记录。 Thus, in the embodiment of the multifunction peripheral 410 according to the present embodiment, by providing the limiting member 484, 485, and the recording paper can be recorded during the recording from the side with a head 39 is limited within a certain range, even in the occurrence of initial recording sheet in the case of deformation, since in addition even if a wave phenomenon, the recording can also be sharp. 并且,进行无边记录时,使上述限制部件484、485退避,因此不会遮住对记录纸的边缘部的墨滴喷出,因此也可进行鲜明的无边记录。 And, when endless recording, the regulating member 484, 485 is retracted, it does not cover an edge portion of the ink droplet on the recording paper is discharged, and therefore can also be recorded sharp infinity.

在本实施方式中,上述限制部件484、485由细长平板构成,因此具有限制部件484、485的结构极为简单的优点。 In the present embodiment, the restriction member 484, 485 is constituted by an elongated flat plate member 484, 485 is thus a limiting structure is extremely simplified. 并且,该限制部件484、485的前端部490如上所述弯曲,因此输送到压印平板442上的记录纸的初始变形较大时,例如产生与记录头39接触的这种程度的变形时,该记录纸也被上述前端部490引导而切实地插入到该限制部件484、485和压印平板442之间。 Then, the distal end portion of the restriction member 490 is bent 484, 485 as described above, delivered to the initial deformation of the recording paper on the platen 442 is large, for example, to generate this level of deformation of the recording head 39 when in contact, the recording sheet of the distal end portion 490 is also guided reliably inserted into the restriction member 484, 485 and 442 between the platen. 因此,即使在记录纸曲折时也可避免该记录纸和记录头39的接触,可实现鲜明的有边记录。 Accordingly, even when the recording sheet may meander to avoid contact with the recording head 39 and the recording paper can be realized with a sharp edge recording.

此外,上述限制部件484、485的移动,由以下各部件实现:上述输入部件424、在输入部件424作用下旋转的旋转板425、和在旋转板425作用下滑动的滑动部件447、448。 Further, the movement of the restriction member 484, 485, implemented by the following members: the input member 424, 425, and 425 under the action of sliding the sliding member to rotate the rotating plate 424 under action of the rotating plate 447, 448 input member. 即,上述限制部件484、485的移动由简单的机构实现,因此还具有抑制图像记录单元24的制造成本的上升的优点。 That is, movement of the restriction member 484, 485 is realized by a simple mechanism, it is also an advantage of suppressing increase in manufacturing cost of the image recording unit 24. 此外,LF马达71不是限制部件484、485的直接驱动源,因此还具有不会妨碍记录纸的正确的输送的优点。 Further, the LF motor 71 is not directly limiting member 484, 485 is a drive source, there is also an advantage that an accurate does not hinder the conveyance of the recording sheet. 特别是,使限制部件484、485滑动的滑动部件447、448,由突起488、489(参照图39和图40)引导而滑动,因此滑动部件447、448顺畅地移动。 In particular, the restriction member 484, 485 slides the sliding member 447, 448, 488, 489 to slide from the protrusion (see FIG. 39 and FIG. 40) of the guide, and therefore the sliding member 447, 448 move smoothly. 因此,限制部件484、485也可顺畅地从压印平板442上退避,并可回复。 Accordingly, the restriction member 484, 485 may be smoothly retracted from the platen 442, and reply.

进而,在本实施方式中,相向配置一对限制部件484、485,所以输送来的记录纸的相向的一对边缘部和该限制部件484、485重叠。 Further, in the present embodiment, the opposed pair of restriction members 484, 485 arranged, so that a pair of edge portions opposing conveyed recording paper and the restricting member 484, 485 overlap. 由此,进行有边记录时,即使产生上述起波现象,也可将记录纸和记录头39的距离切实地限制在一定范围内。 Thus, when there is performed the recording side, even if waves from the above-described phenomenon may also be from a recording paper and the recording head 39 is reliably limited to a certain range. 因此,可实现更鲜明的有边记录。 Therefore, there can be realized sharper edge record. 此外,这些限制部件484、485经由齿条齿轮副机构450连接,因此均等地在上述主扫描方向上接近分离。 In addition, these limiting members 484, 485 are connected via the sub-rack and pinion mechanism 450, thus approaching uniformly separated in the main scanning direction. 因此,在进行无边记录时,具有可切实地避免在压印平板442上输送的记录纸和限制部件484、485重叠的优点。 Thus, when performing borderless recording, can be reliably avoided with the advantage of conveying the recording sheet on the platen 442 and the regulating member 484, 485 overlap.

在本实施方式中,对该记录纸的图像记录结束后,上述可动肋404回复到上述初始位置,且上述限制部件484、485也回复到上述压印平板442上。 In the present embodiment, after the image recording sheet, the movable ribs return to the initial position 404 and the restricting member 484, 485 also return to said platen 442. 因此,例如其后进行有边记录时,上述限制部件484、485也可切实地与记录纸重叠,此外连续在记录纸上进行无边记录时,也可重复上述可动肋404及限制部件484、485的滑动。 Thus, for example, thereafter when the recording side, the restricting member 484, 485 may be reliably overlapped with the recording sheet, in addition to the continuous recording paper borderless recording, it can also be repeated ribs 404 of the movable member and the restriction 484, slide 485. 因此,可连续进行鲜明的有边记录及无边记录。 Thus, continuous sharp edged recording Records infinity. 并且,使可动肋404回复到上述初始位置、且使上述限制部件484、485回复到上述压印平板442上的手段,不是利用CR马达73或LF马达71,而是极为简单的结构,所以还具有不会妨碍记录纸的正确的输送的优点。 And the movable rib 404 returns to the initial position, the regulating member 484, 485 and the return means to the platen 442 above, instead of using CR LF motor 73 or motor 71, but an extremely simple structure, also has the advantage that the correct delivery does not interfere with the recording sheet.

此外,在本实施方式中,通过上述旋转限制部件427,上述旋转板425的旋转受到限制。 In the present embodiment, by the rotation restriction member 427, the rotation of the rotating plate 425 is restricted. 此时,上述输入部件424及旋转限制部件427构成使旋转板425仅向一个方向旋转的棘轮机构。 In this case, the input member 424 and the rotation regulating member 427 constituting the ratchet mechanism rotating plate 425 rotates only in one direction. 因此,每当记录头39往复运动时,旋转板425在图39中逆时针旋转,限制部件484、485切实地从压印平板442上退避。 Thus, every time the recording head 39 reciprocates in the rotary plate 425 rotating counterclockwise in FIG. 39, 484, 485 reliably restriction member is retracted from the platen 442. 此时,由上述控制部64控制记录头39的滑动,可以在记录头39每次往复时使旋转板425旋转,也可调整为每往复数次使旋转板425旋转。 At this time, the recording head 39 is slidably controlled by the control unit 64 can reciprocally each time the rotating plate 425 in the recording head 39 is rotated several times can also be adjusted for each reciprocating rotating plate 425 rotates.

上述记录纸在记录图像的同时进一步向输送方向输送,但此时,如图43所示,可动肋404以支撑着该记录纸的状态向输送方向滑动。 The recording sheet is further conveyed to the conveying direction while the recorded image, but this time, as shown in Figure 43, the movable supporting ribs 404 in a state of sliding of the recording paper conveying direction. 即,该记录纸的前端部及后端部,在图像记录中总是由可动肋404支撑,所以不会相对于输送方向弯曲。 That is, the front end portion and the rear end portion of the recording paper, the image recording is always supported by the movable ribs 404, so it will not bend with respect to the conveying direction. 如本实施方式所述,即使在第一固定肋402和第二固定肋403之间形成上述沟槽416,记录纸也不会向该沟槽416侧下垂,该记录纸和记录头39的距离保持恒定。 As the embodiment according to the present embodiment, even if the groove is formed between the first fixing rib and second fixing rib 402 403 416, the recording sheet does not droop to the side of the trench 416, the recording sheet and the recording head 39 from keep constant. 其结果,实现了高画质印刷。 As a result, to achieve high-quality printing.

具体地说,如图36所示,输送到压印平板442上的记录纸,首先由第一固定肋402支撑,进而通过上述沟槽416输送到第二固定肋403侧。 Specifically, as shown in FIG. 36, the recording sheet conveyed to the platen 442, first supported by the first fixing rib 402, and further conveyed to the second fixing rib 403 side by the groove 416. 该沟槽416,特别在进行无边记录时,可接住越过记录纸的边缘而从记录头39喷出的墨滴。 The groove 416, particularly when performing borderless recording, the recording sheet can be caught over the edge of the ejected ink droplets from the recording head 39. 由此,可防止墨水附着在记录纸的反面侧。 This prevents adhesion of ink on the reverse side of the recording sheet. 该记录纸在沟槽416上通过时,可动肋404跟随输送来的记录纸而向输送方向滑动。 When the recording paper passes over the trench 416, the movable ribs follow the recording sheet 404 conveyed in the conveying direction of the slide. 即,可动肋404滑动的同时支撑该记录纸。 That is, the movable while sliding rib 404 supporting the recording sheet. 因此,该记录纸的端部总是由可动肋404切实地支撑,不会进入上述沟槽416内。 Thus, the end portion 404 of the recording paper always reliably supported by the movable rib 416 does not enter the inner groove.

此外,由于由可动肋404支撑记录纸,因此在压印平板442的设计中可将上述沟槽416的宽度设定得较大。 Further, since the rib 404 is supported by the movable recording sheet, so the design of the embossing plate 442 in the width of the groove 416 may be set to be large. 由此,记录头39可大型化,即使记录头39大型化,上述沟槽416也可覆盖该记录头39的喷墨区域118整体。 Thus, the recording head 39 can be large, even if the size of the recording head 39, the groove 416 may cover the ink ejection area 118 of the recording head 39 as a whole. 其结果,具有还实现了无边记录的高速化的优点。 As a result, it has also realized the high speed of the endless recorded.

特别是,用于支撑上述记录纸的部件为肋,所以具有支撑记录纸的部件的结构极为简单的优点。 In particular, a member for supporting the recording sheet ribs, the sheet member having a recording support structure is extremely simplified. 进而,记录纸和第一固定肋402、第二固定肋403以及可动肋404的接触面积较小,因此可顺畅地输送记录纸。 Further, the recording sheet and the first fixed ribs 402, second fixed ribs 403, and the smaller the contact area of ​​the movable ribs 404, so the recording sheet can be smoothly conveyed.

如图43所示,向压印平板442上输送记录纸时,可动肋404暂时向输送方向上游侧迎上该记录纸,其后,伴随该记录纸的输送,以支撑着记录纸的端部的状态向输送方向下游侧滑动。 43, the recording sheet is conveyed on the platen 442, the rib 404 is temporarily movable in the conveying direction upstream side of the recording paper went up, and thereafter, the recording sheet is conveyed along to support the end of the recording sheet state of the sliding portion to the downstream side conveying direction. 由此,具有以下优点:记录纸的端部切实地由可动肋404支撑,可切实地防止在输送中进入上述沟槽416内。 Accordingly, the following advantages: the end portion of the recording sheet reliably by the movable support ribs 404, can be reliably prevented from entering said inner groove 416 being conveyed.

并且,在驱动可动肋404的驱动机构415中,如上所述,通过CR马达73而滑动的扫描滑架38使上述输入部件424滑动,并将该输入部件424的滑动经由旋转板425和摆动部件426转换为上述可动肋404的滑动。 Further, in the driving mechanism 404 drives the movable ribs 415, as described above, the CR motor 73 to slide through the scanning carriage 38 slides so that the input member 424, the sliding member 424 and the input rotating plate 425 via a pivot and 426 is converted to the sliding member 404 of the movable ribs. 即,LF马达71不是可动肋404的直接驱动源,因此具有不会妨碍记录纸的正确输送的优点。 That is, the LF motor 71 can not directly drive source of the movable ribs 404, there is an advantage of the recording sheet does not interfere with the correct delivery. 另外,在本实施方式中,可动肋404的驱动源为CR马达73,但CR马达73在扫描滑架38的扫描范围外的区域(即图像记录范围外的区域)推压上述输入部件424,因此可确保图像记录范围内记录纸的正确输送。 Further, in the present embodiment, the movable driving source rib 404 is the CR motor 73, but the 73 region outside the scan range of the scanning carriage 38 of the CR motor (i.e., the region outside the image recording range) urging the input member 424 , thus ensuring proper conveyance of the recording sheet in the image recording range. 当然如果可以确保记录纸的正确的输送,也可采用CR马达73或LF马达71作为可动肋404和上述限制部件484、485的直接驱动源。 Of course, if ensures proper recording paper is conveyed, it may also be employed CR LF motor 73 or motor 71 directly drives the source 404 and the restriction ribs 484, 485 as the movable member.

如上所述,上述输入部件424和旋转限制部件427构成棘轮机构。 As described above, the input member 424 and the rotation regulating member 427 constituting the ratchet mechanism. 因此,每当记录头39往复运动时,旋转板425旋转,可动肋404切实地向上述方向移动而支撑记录纸。 Thus, every time the recording head 39 reciprocates, the rotating plate 425 is rotated, the movable ribs 404 reliably moves in the direction of the recording sheet is supported. 另外,如上所述,由上述控制部64控制记录头39的滑动,可以在记录头39每次往复时使旋转板425旋转,此外也可调整为每往复数次使旋转板425旋转。 As described above, the recording head 39 is slidably controlled by the control unit 64, can each time the rotating plate 425 reciprocally rotates the recording head 39, can also be adjusted in addition to several times per reciprocating rotating plate 425 rotates.

此外,在本实施方式中,上述驱动机构405兼备使上述可动肋404滑动的功能、和使上述限制部件484、485退避的功能,两者是连动的,当然使上述可动肋404滑动的机构、和使上述限制部件484、485退避的机构可以分别构成,分别独立动作。 In the present embodiment, both the driving means 405 so that the movable slide rib 404 functions, the regulating member 484, 485 and a retracted function, the two are interlocked, of course, so that the movable slide rib 404 mechanism, the regulating member 484, 485 and the retraction mechanism may be constituted, respectively, which operate independently. 此时,限制部件484、485可由电动的致动器等驱动。 At this time, the regulating member 484, 485 may be an electric actuator drive, and the like. 总之,限制部件484、485,在进行无边记录时,在记录纸到达压印平板442上的时刻退避以不与记录纸重叠即可。 In short, the restriction member 484, 485, when performing borderless recording, the recording sheet reaches the platen 442 is retracted moment so as not to overlap with the recording paper can.
