例如,在日本待审专利申请公开No.2003-298790中披露的成像装置包括:一个在其前侧形成有排出开口的主壳体(下支架)、放置在主壳体中并且包括一个用于向记录纸张上喷墨的喷墨头的打印单元、放置在主壳体后侧上的向后倾斜供纸盘、存储将要提供给喷墨头的墨的墨盒、和放置在主壳体顶部上的扫描仪。 For example, in Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No.2003-298790 discloses an image forming apparatus comprising: forming a housing (case bracket) with a discharge opening at its front side, is placed in the main housing and comprising a for the ink jet recording sheet to the printing unit of the inkjet head, placed on the rear side of the main housing rearwardly inclined feed tray storing ink to be supplied to the ink jet head cartridge, and placed on top of the main housing scanner.

喷墨头是能够在左右方向(记录纸张的宽度方向)上往复移动的串行喷墨头,该左右方向垂直于输送记录纸张的前后方向。 Ink-jet head is capable of left-right direction (the width direction of the recording sheet) reciprocates a serial ink-jet head, the left-right direction perpendicular to the conveying direction of the sheet before and after recording. 在这个成像装置中,记录纸张向下倾斜地堆叠在供纸盘上。 In this image forming apparatus, the recording sheets stacked on the downwardly inclined feed tray. 当纸张在大致水平取向上穿过主壳体中的打印单元时,图像形成在记录纸张上。 When the sheet passes through the main housing of the printing unit in a substantially horizontal orientation, the image formed on the recording sheet. 随后通过排出开口把记录纸张向前排出。 Then forwardly discharged through the discharge opening of the recording sheet. 墨盒通过排出开口下面、主壳体的前侧插入。 Cartridge through the discharge opening below the front side of the main housing of the insert.

扫描仪包括一个具有紧密接触型图像传感器的平台型扫描单元,其上放置原始文件的平台玻璃和覆盖平台玻璃顶表面的盖子。 The scanner includes a flatbed scanning unit in close contact type image sensor having, on which the original document placing glass platform and a cover to cover a top surface of the glass platform. 平台型扫描单元构造为能够绕后端上的转轴向供纸盘的顶表面转动。 Internet scanning unit is configured so as to be rotated around the top surface of the hopper on the rear end of the shaft. 图像传感器在与转轴垂直的方向上延伸并且支撑在基底件上,基底件位于图像传感器的正下方。 The image sensor extends and is supported on the base member in a direction perpendicular to the shaft, the base member located directly below the image sensor. 图像传感器和基底件一起在平行于转轴的方向上移动。 An image sensor and a base member move together in a direction parallel to the rotation axis.

成像装置进一步包括放置在排出开口一侧的介质板。 The imaging apparatus further comprises a discharge opening disposed on the side of the dielectric plate. 介质板设有介质槽,可以通过这些介质槽把外部存储介质插入。 Medium dielectric plate is provided with grooves, through these grooves the external storage medium inserted into the medium.

另一方面,在日本专利No.3376216中披露的成像装置具有一个上支架、一个下支架和一个放置在下支架的底部中的供纸盘。 On the other hand, the image forming apparatus disclosed in Japanese Patent No.3376216 has a bracket, a lower bracket and the bottom of a stent placed on the lower feed tray. 为了把切好的纸张堆叠在供纸盘中,可以把供纸盘从下支架中拉出。 In order to good supply cut sheet stack in the tray, the tray can be pulled out from the supply holder. 记录纸张沿着以侧置U形折回的输送通道输送到打印单元。 In the recording sheet is conveyed along the U-shaped folded side-transport path to the printing unit. 当图像在打印单元中形成在记录纸张上以后,纸张在基本水平的取向上排出到装置外。 When the image is formed after the recording sheet, the sheet is discharged to the apparatus in a substantially horizontal orientation in the printing unit outside.

上支架安装在下支架上使得它能够相对于下支架打开和关闭,这样向上转动上支架就暴露出下支架顶表面上的较大区域。 The lower bracket is mounted on the stand so that it is movable relative to the lower bracket opening and closing, so that the holder is rotated upwardly to expose the top surface of a larger area on the stent. 这种结构便于清除卡在纸张输送通道上的纸张和更换容纳在下支架中的墨盒的这些操作,而且还能够帮助操作者看见这些操作的目标。 This structure facilitates clearing jammed paper on the conveying path and replacement of these operations the lower holder receiving the cartridge, but also help the operator to see the target of these operations in the sheet. 扫描单元中的行式图像传感器所具有的结构使得它在垂直于上支架转轴的方向上移动的同时能够每次一行地扫描原始文件。 A line scanning unit of the image sensor has a structure such that it simultaneously moves in a direction perpendicular to the shaft holder can be scanned one line at the original document.

在这样的成像装置中,为了把信号从扫描单元传递到放置在下支架(主壳体)中的控制板上,需要进行接线。 In such an image forming apparatus, for transmitting a signal from the scanning unit placed on the lower support (main housing) in the control panel, the need for wiring. 由于日本待审专利申请公开NO.2003-298790和日本专利No.3376216中披露的成像装置所具有的结构使得扫描单元或者支撑扫描单元的上支架能够相对于支撑打印单元的下支架(主壳体)较宽地打开,当扫描单元或上支架处于打开状态时,有必要避免接线阻碍对卡纸的清除和维护操作。 Since Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication NO.2003-298790 Patent No.3376216 and the image forming apparatus disclosed in Japanese has a structure such that the scanning unit or the upper support bracket supporting the scanning unit in the printing unit holder (with respect to the main housing ) wide open, when the scanning unit or the holder is open, it is necessary to avoid hindering the wiring and maintenance operations to clear the jam.

为了实现这个效果,优选以下述方式把图像传感器连接到控制板。 To achieve this effect, preferably in a manner to connect the image sensor to the control board. 也就是说,控制板放置在转轴的另一侧,离开在转轴正下方的下支架(主壳体)中的图像传感器,使得控制板的一侧平行于转轴。 That is, the control board placed on the other side of the shaft, away from the image sensor in the holder (main housing) just below the shaft, such that the side panel is parallel to the rotation axis. 然后,柔性扁平电缆的一端连接到图像传感器的纵向侧,柔性扁平电缆的另一端连接到控制板与转轴平行的一侧。 Then, one end of the flexible flat cable is connected to the longitudinal side of the image sensor, the other end of the flexible flat cable is connected to one side of the control panel and parallel to the shaft. 柔性扁平电缆在图像传感器移动的方向上延伸并且与转轴交叉。 The flexible flat cable extends in the moving direction of the image sensor and the rotation axis intersect.

发明内容 SUMMARY

但是,特别是在日本待审专利申请公开No.2003-298790的成像装置中,通常使用具有很多电线的柔性扁平电缆连接图像传感器和控制板,并且这个柔性扁平电缆具有足够的柔性在大致平行于接线纵向的方向上能够弯曲回来,然而在垂直于接线纵向的方向上不具有足够弯曲回来的柔性。 However, particularly in the Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No.2003-298790 image forming apparatus, it is generally a flexible flat cable connecting the image sensor and the control board has a number of electric wire, and the flexible flat cable is sufficiently flexible substantially parallel to the longitudinal direction of the wiring can be bent back, but does not have sufficient flexibility bent back in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the wiring. 当柔性扁平电缆以上述方式连接在图像传感器和控制板之间时,图像传感器连接柔性扁平电缆一端的那一侧与控制板连接柔性扁平电缆另一端的那一侧垂直。 When the flexible flat cable is connected to the above-described manner between the image sensor and the control board, the image sensor is connected to a side panel of the flexible flat cable that is connected to one end of the vertical side of the other end of the flexible flat cable. 因此,柔性扁平电缆的中间部分绕其宽度方向扭曲,并且当图像传感器移动时,柔性扁平电缆中间部分的弯曲角度剧烈波动。 Therefore, the intermediate portion of the flexible flat cable is twisted about its widthwise direction, and when the image sensor moves, the bending angle of the intermediate portion of the flexible flat cable volatility. 当长时间使用成像装置并且反复打开和关闭扫描单元(上支架)时,柔性扁平电缆的反复弯曲倾向于导致扭曲部分的磨损和断裂(断裂或接线断开)。 When using the imaging apparatus for a long time and repeatedly opening and closing the scanning unit (bracket), repeated bending of the flexible flat cable tends to cause wear and tear of the twisted portion (wiring disconnection or breakage).

为了消除柔性扁平电缆的扭曲,可以以直角弯回电缆的中间部分并且能够布置电缆使它与转轴垂直。 In order to eliminate distortion of the flexible flat cable and to be back to the middle portion of the cable and can be bent at right angles to the vertical rotating shaft arranged cable it. 但是,即使在这种情况下,图像传感器的移动仍然会对电缆的弯曲部分施加很大的力,造成反复弯曲这些部分并且引起接线断开。 However, even in this case, the bent portion of the mobile image sensor cable will still have to apply a great force, causing them repeatedly bent portion and causes the wiring disconnected. 因此还有待于解决这个问题。 So to solve this problem yet.

另一个问题是当把介质板和主控制板放置在分开的位置时,需要接线连接这两个板。 Another problem is that when the main control board and the dielectric plate disposed at separate locations, it is necessary to connect the two wiring boards.

另外,由于在日本待审专利申请公开No.2003-298790披露的成像装置中设有位于记录单元后侧的供纸盘和它前侧的排出部分与墨盒,成像装置的前后方向的尺寸较大。 Further, since the Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No.2003-298790 discloses an image forming apparatus provided with the longitudinal direction of the larger size of the rear side of the recording unit and the hopper discharge portion of the ink container front side of it, the image forming apparatus . 另外,作为串行头,喷墨头的结构使得它能够移动到记录纸张宽度方向上两个边沿之外,这样在纸张输送通道的两侧就留下浪费的空间。 Further, as a serial head, the structure of the ink jet head such that it can be moved out of the recording sheet width direction both edges, so that both sides of the paper conveyance path on leaving wasted space.

考虑到前述问题,本实用新型的一个目的是克服上述问题,并且也提供一种能够做得更紧凑的成像装置,这是通过使浪费的内部空间最小化来实现的。 View of the foregoing, an object of the present invention is to overcome the above problems, and can also be made to provide a more compact image forming apparatus, this is achieved by the internal space of the waste is minimized.

本实用新型的另一个目的是提供一种成像装置,当支撑扫描机构的上支架完全打开时,通过保证柔性扁平电缆的中间部分不会阻碍维护操作和更换墨盒操作,这种成像装置便于进行上述操作,同时电缆的中间部分不会扭曲。 Another object of the present invention is to provide an image forming apparatus, when the holder supporting the scanning mechanism is fully opened, by ensuring that the intermediate portion of the flexible flat cable does not prevent the operation of maintenance and replacement of the ink cartridge, this facilitates the above-described image forming apparatus operation, while the intermediate portion of the cable is not twisted.

本实用新型的另一个目的是提供一种成像装置,其中柔性扁平电缆将支撑在上支架上的扫描机构连接到控制板上,该控制板放置在上支架的转轴与扫描机构相对的那一侧,并且柔性扁平电缆自身不需要弯曲回来。 Another object of the present invention is to provide an image forming apparatus, wherein the flexible flat cable on the support scan mechanism on the holder connected to the control board, the board is placed in the side opposite the rotation shaft of the holder and the scanning mechanism and bending the flexible flat cable itself does not need to come back.

首先,参考图1到13描述根据本实用新型第一个实施例的多功能装置1。 First, referring to FIGS. 1 through 13 described in the multifunction device 1 according to a first embodiment of the present invention embodiment.

如图1所示,多功能装置1包括具有上支架5和下支架6的主壳体2。 1, the multifunction device 1 includes a main casing 2 has an upper bracket 5 and the lower bracket 6. 下支架6在平面图中形成大致为正方形。 Lower bracket 6 is formed in plan view is substantially square. 在下支架6的前侧底部和左右方向的中心形成了凹进形式的纸张容纳部分10,它给下支架6提供了拱形前部外观。 And the bottom center of the front side of the left-right direction of the lower bracket 6 is formed a recess in the form of the sheet accommodating portion 10, to which the lower bracket 6 provides a front arcuate portion appearance. 在纸张容纳部分10内部限定了输送空间12,用来在前后方向上输送记录纸张P(见图12)。 In the inner portion 10 defines a receiving sheet conveying space 12, for conveying the recording sheet P (see FIG. 12) in the longitudinal direction.

保持记录纸张P的供纸盘11可拆卸地插入到纸张容纳部分10中并且能够在输送空间12内部的前后方向上移动。 Holding the recording sheet P feed tray 11 is detachably inserted into the sheet accommodating portion 10 and 12 can be moved in the front-rear direction inside the transport space. 当供纸盘11容纳在纸张容纳部分10中时,供纸盘11堵塞纸张容纳部分10的底部。 When the paper feed tray 11 housed in the part 10 when receiving, the jammed paper feed tray 11 receiving the bottom section 10. 换言之,通过取消纸张容纳部分10的底表面并且构造供纸盘11起到底表面的作用,能够缩小下支架6的高度。 In other words, bottom surface portion 10 by eliminating the paper feed tray 11 configured to receive and play the role in the end surface, the lower bracket 6 can be reduced in height. 由于通过把供纸盘11从纸张容纳部分10取出能够很容易地打开下支架6的底部,所以这个结构便于在出现卡纸等情况时的维护工作。 Since the feed tray 11 by the sheet accommodating portion 10 is removed from the bottom of the lower bracket 6 can be easily opened, so this structure facilitates maintenance work and the like at the time of a paper jam occurring.

形成在拱形中的引导件13放置于靠近供纸盘11前部的地方,它从纸张容纳部分10的左、右边沿延伸出来覆盖装载在供纸盘11中的记录纸张P的顶部。 Formed in the arcuate guide member 13 is placed close to the front portion of the paper feed tray 11, which accommodates the left portion 10 from the sheet, extends along the right side of the top cover 11 is loaded in the feed tray of the recording sheet P. 引导件13确定了在供纸盘11上的记录纸张P的左、右位置。 The guide member 13 is determined for the left on the recording paper tray 11 P, and right positions. 引导件13还起到排出盘的作用。 The guide member 13 also functions as a discharge tray. 当如下所述图像在记录单元21中形成在记录纸张P上后,记录纸张P向前排出到引导件13的顶表面上。 When the image is formed as follows in the recording unit 21 after the recording paper P, the recording sheet P is discharged onto the top surface of the forward guide 13. 因此,引导件13把输送空间12分成用于提供记录纸张P的下部供应空间12a和用于排出记录纸张P的上部排出空间12b。 Thus, the guide member 13 to provide a conveying space 12 into a lower supply space 12a and the recording sheet P is discharged to an upper space of the recording sheet P is discharged 12b. 注意在图2-4中略去了引导件13。 Note that the guide member 13 is omitted in FIGS. 2-4.

如图6所示,打印单元3容纳在下支架6中。 6, the printer unit 6 in receiving the lower holder 3. 打印单元3包括输送机构20和记录单元21,输送机构20在前后方向上输送容纳在供纸盘11中的记录纸张P,记录单元21放置在下支架6的后部中用来在记录纸张P上记录图像。 The printing unit 3 comprises a conveyance mechanism 20 and the recording unit 21, the transport mechanism 20 for transporting the recording paper housed in the tray 11 in the longitudinal direction P, the recording unit 21 is placed on the lower rear holder 6 on a recording paper P recorded images. 由合成树脂形成的盖子22(图10)安装在下支架6上用来覆盖输送机构20和记录单元21。 Cap 22 (FIG. 10) is formed of a synthetic resin is mounted on the holder 6 for covering the lower transport mechanism 20 and the recording unit 21.

如图6所示,输送机构20包括臂23、供给辊24、板25、对准辊26、从动辊27和排出辊28。 6, the transport mechanism 20 includes an arm 23, the supply roller 24, plate 25, a registration roller 26, a driven roller 27 and the discharge roller 28. 臂23放置在供纸盘11后端的上面并且从记录单元21的引擎支架33处向下延伸。 Arm 23 is placed above the rear end of the supply tray 11 and extends downwardly from the recording unit 21 of the engine bracket 33. 供给辊24可转动地支撑在臂23的下端。 Supply roller 24 is rotatably supported at the lower end of arm 23. 板25放置在纸张容纳部分10后部的空间中并且具有U形输送部分25a。 Plate 25 is placed in the space portion 10 and the rear portion of the sheet accommodating a U-shaped conveying section 25a. 对准辊26放置在比板25靠前、比记录单元21靠后的位置。 Registration roller 26 is placed over the front plate 25, the position than the recording unit 21 rearward. 从动辊27与对准辊26相对放置。 Driven roller 27 and the registration roller 26 disposed opposite. 排出辊28放置在记录单元21的前部。 Discharge roller 28 is placed in the front portion 21 of the recording unit. 马达(未示出)驱动每个供给辊24、对准辊26和排出辊28转动。 Motor (not shown) driving each feed roller 24, registration roller 26 and the discharge roller 28 is rotated.

下面描述输送记录纸张P的输送机构20。 The following describes the recording sheet P conveyed transport mechanism 20. 首先,供给辊24每次从供纸盘11上拾取一张记录纸张P并且把记录纸张P输送到形成在板25中的U形输送部分25a上。 First, at a time from the supply roller 24 picks up a sheet feed tray 11 to the recording paper P and the recording sheet P is conveyed to the U-shape is formed in the plate portion 25 of the conveying 25a. 记录纸张P在U形输送部分25a中翻转从而向前移动并且利用对准辊26和从动辊27输送到记录单元21处。 The recording sheet P conveyed in the U-shaped portion 25a to move forward and flips using the alignment roller 26 and the transport driven roller 27 to the recording unit 21. 当记录单元21把图像记录到记录纸张P上后,排出辊28把记录纸张P排放到上部排出空间12b中。 When the recording unit 21 after recording the image onto the recording sheet P, the recording sheet discharge roller 28 is discharged to the upper discharge space P 12b. 由于U形输送部分25a把从前部提供来的记录纸张P翻转并且向前部排出,与构造为从后部馈送记录纸张P并且向前部排出记录纸张P的多功能装置相比,多功能装置1的前后尺寸就能够更短一些。 Since the U-shaped conveying part 25a provided to the front portion of the recording sheet P is discharged reversing and forward portion, and configured to feed the recording paper P is discharged from the rear toward the front of the multifunction device and the recording paper P as compared with the multifunction device 1 before and after size can be shorter.

如图6和8所示,记录单元21包括滑架30、喷墨头31、压盘32、引擎支架33、定时皮带34和马达39。 6 and 8, the recording unit 21 includes a carriage 30, the ink jet head 31, platen 32, the engine bracket 33, a timing belt 34 and a motor 39. 喷墨头31安装到滑架30的底部。 The ink jet head 31 mounted to the bottom of the carriage 30. 压盘32放置在滑架30的下面。 The platen 32 is placed below the carriage 30. 引擎支架33支撑滑架30和压盘32。 Engine Mount 33 supports the carriage 30 and the platen 32. 一对在左右方向上延伸的前后导板35和36放置在引擎支架33上面。 A pair of front guide plate extending in the lateral direction 35 and the bracket 36 is placed above the engine 33. 滑架30通过定时皮带34与马达39结合在一起并且能够在导板35和36上左右往复移动从而其定位范围超过记录纸张P的两个宽度边沿。 The carriage motor 30 and timing belt 34 and 39 joined together around the movable guides 35 and 36 are reciprocally positioned so that it exceeds the range of the width of two edge recording sheet P passes.

利用这个结构,马达39沿着这对导板35和36在左右方向上往复移动滑架30,同时墨从放置在滑架30上的喷墨头31喷射到正在喷墨头31下面的空间中向前输送的记录纸张P上。 With this structure, the motor 39 along the pair of guide plates 35 and 36 reciprocates the carriage 30 in the lateral direction while ejecting ink from the carriage 30 is placed on the ink jet head 31 to the space 31 is below the ink jet head to before the recording paper P transported. 图像以这种形式形成在记录纸张P上。 The image formed on the recording paper P in this form.

如图12所示,用于清洁喷墨头31的维护单元37设在记录单元21的右侧边沿下面。 As shown in FIG. 12, the maintenance unit for cleaning the ink jet head 31 is provided in the recording unit 37 of the right side edge 21 below.

由于U形输送通道放置在喷墨头31下面,在形成U形输送通道的U形输送部分25a的板25上面存在未使用的空间,并且这个空间在安装了喷墨头31的滑架30后面,其中记录纸张P穿过这个U形输送通道从下部供应空间12a输送到上部排出空间12b。 Since the U-shaped conveying path 31 disposed beneath the inkjet head, is formed in the U-shaped plate conveyance passage 25a of the U-shaped conveying part exists unused space 25 above, and this space in the back of the carriage 30 mounting the ink jet head 31 wherein the recording paper P passes through the U-shaped conveying path conveyed to a lower supply space 12a from the upper discharge space 12b. 因此,如图6和12所示,废液吸收件38放置在板25上面、滑架30后面的空间中,占据了右部的大约三分之二空间。 Therefore, as shown in FIG. 6 and 12, the waste liquid absorbing member 38 placed thereon, the back plate 25 of the carriage 30 in the space, occupies about two thirds of a right space portion. 当维护单元37执行维护操作时,废液吸收件38用来吸收从喷墨头31中的喷嘴排出的废墨。 When the maintenance unit 37 performs maintenance operations, the waste liquid absorbing member 38 for absorbing waste ink discharged from the nozzles 31 of the inkjet head. 这样就有效地利用了下支架6中的空间。 This efficient use of space in the lower bracket 6.

如上所述,喷墨头31是能够移动到记录纸张P两个宽度边沿之外的串行头。 As described above, the inkjet head 31 is a serial head can move to the recording paper P other than the two width edges. 因此,如图11所示,记录单元21在左右方向上进一步延伸到纸张容纳部分10以外的地方,从而在纸张容纳部分10的左右两侧形成了空间。 Thus, as shown in FIG. 11, the recording unit 21 is further extended in the lateral direction to the paper receiving portion 10 outside, so as to form a space on the sides of the sheet accommodating portion 10. 因此,在本实施例中,固定墨盒40的墨盒保持器41放置在纸张容纳部分10的右侧,供电单元60放置在纸张容纳部分10的左侧,这样就有效地使用了纸张容纳部分10两侧的空间。 Accordingly, in the present embodiment, the holder 40 holding the ink cartridge 41 is placed to the right of the sheet accommodating portion 10, the power supply unit 60 on the left side of the sheet accommodating portion 10, thus effectively using the paper receiving portion 10 two space side.

如图6所示,为了把记录纸张P排出到上部排出空间12b中,只需要上部排出空间12b的顶部(纸张容纳部分10)比记录纸张P从记录单元21排出的位置(排出辊28的顶点)高就行。 6, to the recording sheet P is discharged into the upper discharge space 12b, the head space 12b only needs to discharge an upper (paper sheet accommodating portion 10) than the position of the recording sheet P is discharged from the recording unit 21 (the discharge roller 28 vertices ) another job line. 因此,上部排出空间12b不需要形成得很高。 Accordingly, the upper discharge space 12b need not be formed very tall. 所以如图6所示,用于控制多功能装置1操作的主控制板50水平放置在纸张容纳部分10上部的空间中。 Therefore, as shown in FIG. 6, the multifunction device 1 for controlling the main operation panel 50 is horizontally disposed in the space portion 10 in the upper portion of the receiving sheet. 另外,记录单元21放置在纸张容纳部分10的后面使得记录单元21的顶部与主控制板50的高度几乎一样。 Further, the recording unit 21 is placed behind the sheet accommodating portion 10 of the recording unit such that the height of the top 21 of the main control board 50 is almost the same. 换言之,如图11所示,主控制板50的顶部和记录单元21的顶部大致定位在同一个平面内。 In other words, as shown, top of the main top panel 50 and the recording unit 21 is positioned substantially in the same plane 11 as shown in FIG. 因此,有效地使用了纸张容纳部分10上面的空间,同时不会增加多功能装置1的高度。 Thus, effective use of the upper portion 10 of the paper receiving space, without increasing the height of the multifunction device 1. 另外,如图11所示,墨盒保持器41、墨盒40和供电单元60在垂直方向上装配在主控制板50的顶部(放置在主控制板50上的连接器51)和纸张容纳部分10的底部之间,在图11中用“H”表示。 Further, as shown in FIG. 11, the ink cartridge holder 41, the ink container 40 and the power supply unit 60 in the vertical direction at the top of the main assembly of the control board 50 (placed on the main control board 50 of the connector 51) and the paper receiving section 10 between the bottom, with in FIG. 11 "H" FIG. 因此,可以使得多功能装置1的高度较小,从而使得多功能装置1能够制造得更紧凑。 Accordingly, the height can be made smaller multifunction device 1, so that the multifunction device 1 can be made more compact.

下面进一步描述墨盒保持器41、主控制板50和供电单元60。 Further described below cartridge holder 41, the main control board 50 and the power supply unit 60.

如图3和10所示,四个墨盒40从盖子22的顶部通过形成在盖子22中的插入孔22a插入到墨盒保持器41中并且排列在前后方向上,每个墨盒40容纳四种颜色墨中的一种(黄、洋红、青和黑)。 3 and 10, the four ink cartridges 40 from the top 22a of the cap 22 is inserted into the cartridge holder 41 and arranged in the longitudinal direction through the insertion hole formed in the cover 22, each of the four colors of ink cartridges 40 housed of one (yellow, magenta, cyan, and black). 墨盒40通过图8所示的柔性管42连接到喷墨头31。 The ink cartridge 40 is connected by a flexible tube 842 illustrated in FIG. 31 to the inkjet head. 当墨从喷墨头31喷出时,墨通过柔性管42从墨盒40提供给喷墨头31。 When the ink is ejected from the ink jet head 31, the ink 42 through the flexible tube 31 is supplied to the ink jet head 40 from the ink cartridge. 注意尽管该实施例中的墨盒40容纳黑、青、洋红和黄四种颜色的墨,墨盒40可以容纳更多种颜色的墨。 Note that although this embodiment of the black ink cartridge 40 housed embodiment, cyan, magenta and yellow four color inks, the ink cartridge 40 can accommodate more colors.

如图4所示,上支架5利用铰链等形式的轴14可转动地支撑在下支架6的左部边沿上。 As shown, the bracket 5 and the like in the form of a hinge shaft 14 is rotatably supported on the lower left bracket portion 4 of the rim 6. 换言之,当从多功能装置1的前面观察时,上支架5可以绕与墨盒保持器41的位置相对的侧边向侧向转动打开。 In other words, when viewed from the front of the multifunction device 1, the frame 5 can rotate about the holding position 41 and the opposite sides of the ink container is rotated to open sideways. 这样转动上支架5能够可靠地显露出墨盒保持41的顶部,使得能够很容易地从上面把墨盒40安装到墨盒保持器41中。 Such rotation of the holder 5 can be reliably revealed cartridge holding portion 41, so that can be easily mounted from above the ink cartridge 40 into the cartridge holder 41.

在左右方向上延伸的导轨16固定到上支架5的后部中的底表面上。 Rails extending in the lateral direction 16 is fixed to the bottom surface of the rear bracket 5 in. 导轨16用在左右方向上延伸的导槽16a形成。 Rail 16 with a guide groove extending in the lateral direction 16a is formed. 支撑杆17可转动地连接到下支架6上使得它能够绕它的下部右端转动。 Support rod 17 rotatably connected to the lower bracket 6 so that it can be rotated around its lower right end. 在支撑杆17的自由端设有定位销17a。 The free end of the support rod 17 is provided with a positioning pin 17a. 定位销17a与导槽16a可滑动地配合。 The positioning pin guide grooves 17a and 16a may be slidably fitted. 一直在导槽16a中滑动定位销17a直到定位销17a装配到形成在导槽16a右端(与在前后方向上延伸的上支架5的转轴相对的端部)中的配合部分(未示出)中,支撑杆17支撑打开状态下的上支架5。 Has been in the guide groove 16a of the slide positioning pin 17a until the pin 17a fitted into a fitting portion 16a of the right end of the guide groove (the end portion opposite to the upper bracket extends in the longitudinal direction of the rotating shaft 5) (not shown) support rods 17 supported on the support 5 in the open state. 利用这种结构,上支架5可以相对于下支架6以较大的包含角度θ保持在打开状态。 With this configuration, the holder 5 relative to the lower bracket 6 comprises a relatively large angle θ remains in an open state.

使得上支架5相对于下支架6保持在较大的包含角度θ的装置可以包括靠近轴14放置的弧形护轨和这些护轨引导的定位销。 Such that the upper bracket 5 relative to the lower bracket 6 remains at a larger angle θ apparatus comprising an arcuate guard rail may include a guard rail and the guide shaft 14 disposed close to the positioning pin. 另外,还可以提供推进装置来向上推进上支架5,使得上支架5保持在打开状态。 Further, may also be provided on the propulsion means to propel the holder 5 upward, so that the holder 5 is held in an open state.

利用这种结构,下支架6的顶表面打开的程度可以较大,这样就增加了它的可视性并且便于进行维护喷墨头31等操作,还可以沿着输送通道清除卡纸以及更换墨盒40。 With this structure, the extent of the top surface of the lower holder 6 may be opened larger, thus increasing its visibility and facilitates maintenance operation and the like ink-jet head 31 can also clear the jam and the replaceable ink container along the transport path 40. 如图3所示,当从前面观察时,如果上支架5在其最高位置时的右边沿与下支架6的右边沿之间的距离A设定为等于或大于墨盒40的宽度尺寸B,那么就可以几乎在垂直方向上把墨盒40插入下支架6一侧的墨盒保持器41中或者从墨盒保持器41中取出,这样就增加了可视性并且便于对墨盒40的安装和拆除操作。 A distance between the setting as shown, when viewed from the front, if the right side of the holder 5 is in its uppermost position along the right edge 3 and the lower bracket 6 is equal or greater than the width dimension B of the cartridge 40, then It can be almost in the vertical direction the ink cartridge 40 is inserted into the cartridge holder 6 side or from the holder 41 holding the ink cartridge 41 removed, thus increasing the visibility and ease of installation and removal operations of the ink cartridge 40.
