Description

  The present invention relates to a recording apparatus including a floating substance suction unit that sucks floating substances generated in association with recording.

  Ink jet printers, which are one type of recording apparatus, include a so-called marginless recording type that can perform recording without leaving a margin at the edge of a sheet that is a recording medium. In such an ink jet printer, recording is performed in an area slightly larger than the size of the paper in consideration of a margin for the positional deviation of the paper and the positional deviation of the carriage on which the recording head is mounted. In other words, when recording is performed without leaving margins at the left and right edge portions and the upper and lower edge portions of the paper, ink droplets are ejected to areas left and right or up and down from the edge of the paper.

  However, the particle size of the ink droplets has been minimized in order to perform high-quality recording, and the ink droplets that have come off the paper may float as ink mist and contaminate the paper or the like. In view of this, an ink jet printer has been proposed in which a mist suction section for sucking ink mist is provided on the back side of the carriage. The mist suction unit includes a duct that connects the mist suction port and the mist discharge port, and a fan that is provided in the middle of the duct and sucks and discharges ink mist. For this reason, ink mist tends to adhere to the fan, and periodic fan maintenance work, waterproof treatment, and the like are required (see Patent Document 1).

  Therefore, an ink jet printer that prevents ink mist from adhering to the fan has been proposed. The mist suction unit includes a duct connecting the mist suction port and the mist discharge port, a trap unit provided in the middle of the duct to trap the large-diameter ink mist, a heating drying unit and an ink for heating and drying the small-diameter ink mist. It has a fan that sucks mist. According to the ink jet printer having such a configuration, since ink mist is removed before reaching the fan, it is possible to prevent ink mist from adhering to the fan (see Patent Document 2).

  FIG. 5 is a perspective view showing the floating substance suction part 210 and its peripheral part. The floating substance suction unit 210 includes a floating substance suction body 212 in which a floating substance suction port 211 is formed, and a floating substance suction duct (first duct) 213 connected to the floating substance suction body 212. The floating substance suction main body 212 is formed in a rectangular parallelepiped box shape, and is disposed along the platen 151 at the upper part of the platen 151 on the upstream side in the sheet conveyance direction. In the floating substance suction body 212, a plurality of rectangular floating substance suction ports 211 are formed on the front surface side at predetermined intervals in the main scanning direction. The floating substance suction duct 213 has an inlet end connected to the right side of the floating substance suction body 212 in the figure and an outlet end connected to the exhaust side in the middle of the sheet suction duct 163 extending from the pressure chamber 161.

  Here, the pressure chamber 161 is formed in a box shape in which a part of the upper surface and the right side surface in the drawing is opened, and a platen 151 having a plurality of suction holes 51 is attached to the open portion of the upper surface. A fan (suction means) 162 to which a sheet suction duct (second duct) 163 is attached is attached to the open portion on the right side surface. By rotating the fan 162, air is sucked into the pressure chamber 161 from the suction hole 51 formed in the platen 151, and is exhausted from the fan 162 through the paper suction duct 163 to the outside through the exhaust port 163a. Accordingly, when cut paper or roll paper R is supplied to the upper surface of the platen 151, negative pressure is generated on the lower surface side of the cut paper or roll paper R, so that the cut paper or roll paper R is attracted to the upper surface of the platen 151. As a result, the cut paper or the roll paper R can be prevented from being lifted, and the recording accuracy can be maintained with high accuracy.

Further, when the air flow from the fan 162 passes through the connection portion 163b of the paper suction duct 163 in the paper suction duct 163, floating matter such as ink mist and dust / dust floating in the vicinity of the floating matter suction body 212 is suspended. The sheet can be sucked into the sheet suction duct 163 from the suction port 211 through the floating substance suction duct 213. That is, if the pressure in the paper suction duct 163 is P, the air flow rate from the fan 162 is v, the pressure in the floating material suction duct 213 is Po, the air flow rate in the floating material suction duct 213 is vo, and the air density is ρ. From Bernoulli's theorem, the following equation (1) holds.
ρv 2/2 + P = ρvo 2/2 + Po ... (1)
Here, in the initial state, since the air flow velocity vo in the suspended matter suction duct 213 is 0, the pressure P in the sheet suction duct 163 is set in the suspended matter suction duct 213 as shown in the following equation (2). The air containing the suspended matter in the suspended matter suction duct 213 becomes smaller than the pressure Po and flows into the sheet suction duct 163.
P = Po-ρv 2/2 ... (2)
Since the connecting portion 163 b of the paper suction duct 163 is on the exhaust side of the paper suction duct 163, the floating substance is discharged from the exhaust port 163 a of the paper suction duct 163 without passing through the fan 162. Accordingly, since no floating substances are attached to the fan 162, periodic maintenance work or waterproofing of the fan 162 is unnecessary, and maintenance costs and component costs can be kept low. Furthermore, since trapping means, heat drying means, and the like are not necessary, the ink jet printer 100 can be made compact and the product cost can be kept low. Further, since the sheet can be sucked and the suspended matter can be sucked only by providing one fan 162, the ink jet printer 100 can be made compact and the product cost can be kept low.

  In the embodiment shown in FIG. 5, the floating substance suction duct 213 is connected at a right angle to the exhaust direction in the paper suction duct 163, but may be connected at an acute angle with respect to the exhaust direction in the paper suction duct 163. good. Thereby, the air containing the floating substance flowing in the floating substance suction duct 213 can be more smoothly merged with the air flowing in the paper suction duct 163. Furthermore, although the sheet suction duct 163 is formed in a straight tube shape, as in the embodiment shown in FIG. You may form in the shape made small. Thereby, since the dynamic pressure in the paper suction duct 163 can be further increased, the air containing the floating matter from the floating matter suction duct 213 can be more smoothly merged with the air flowing in the paper suction duct 163. .

  As long as it is a recording device, it can be applied to, for example, a facsimile machine, a copying machine, and the like. In addition to a recording apparatus, the meaning of a liquid ejecting apparatus that ejects a liquid corresponding to its use from a liquid ejecting head onto an ejected medium instead of ink and attaches the liquid to the ejected medium is, for example, a liquid crystal display or the like Color material jet head used for manufacturing color filters, electrode material (conductive paste) jet head used for electrode formation for organic EL display and surface emitting display (FED), bio-organic jet head used for biochip manufacturing, precision pipette The present invention can also be applied to an apparatus equipped with a sample ejection head or the like.
