Description

  The present invention relates to an ink jet recording apparatus such as a printer, a copier, or a multifunction peripheral, and a paper conveying apparatus applied to these.

  In recent years, inkjet recording apparatuses that eject ink droplets from a plurality of nozzles and perform printing on paper have been widely marketed because of their advantages such as small size, low cost, and quietness during operation.

  As a recording method of such an ink jet recording apparatus, there are the following methods. That is, as shown in FIG. 4, a head unit 402 in which a plurality of nozzles 401 are arranged is mounted on a moving body (carriage) 403, and a direction (main scanning direction) orthogonal to the conveyance direction (sub-scanning direction) A of paper P The carriage 403 is main-scanned in B. This is a recording method in which printing is performed by ejecting ink droplets from the nozzle 401 during the main scanning.

  Recently, however, the following recording method called a line type has been adopted in response to a demand for high-speed printing. That is, as shown in FIG. 5, a line head in which the head units 402 having a size over the entire width of the paper P are arranged in a single row or a plurality of rows is provided, and the entire width of the paper P is simultaneously measured without performing the main scanning as described above. In this method, ink droplets are ejected from the nozzle 401.

 In particular, in an ink jet recording apparatus that performs color printing, as shown in FIG. 5, four line heads 114K for each color of black (K), cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y), With 114C, 114M, and 114Y, faster printing is realized. An ink jet recording apparatus provided with such a line head is disclosed, for example, in Patent Document 1 below. Recently, however, the following recording method called a line type has been adopted in response to a demand for high-speed printing.

  On the other hand, with the increase in printing speed, the following problems have arisen.

  FIG. 6A is a structural diagram of the printing mechanism of the ink jet recording apparatus. First, the recording head 114 that houses the four line heads 114K, 114C, 114M, and 114Y is disposed horizontally. A paper transport unit 650 is disposed below the recording head 114. In the paper transport unit 650, an endless rubber material transport belt 600 is stretched by a drive roller 601, a tension roller 602, and a support roller 603. These rollers are usually made of metal.

  On the other hand, a paper presser roller 604 is disposed above the support roller 603, and a paper feed unit 660 that sandwiches the paper P between the support roller 603 and the paper presser roller 604 and sends it to the paper transport unit 650 is configured. Yes. The paper P delivered in the direction of arrow A from the paper delivery unit 660 rotates the conveyance belt 600 counterclockwise by the operation of the driving roller 601, so that the gap between the recording head 114 and the paper conveyance unit 650 is set at a speed of 2 seconds. It passes at a high speed of 0.5m to 1.5m.

  During the passage at this high speed, the paper P may float from the surface of the conveyor belt 600 due to wind pressure or the like, and this levitation is more likely to occur as the passage becomes faster. In addition, if the recording head 114 is increased in order to increase the printing speed, the above-mentioned passing distance becomes longer, so that it frequently occurs.

  When levitation occurs, the distance between the paper P and the recording head 114 becomes non-uniform, and as a result, printing becomes non-uniform and the print quality is impaired. Further, since the gap is only 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm, the paper P may come into contact with the recording head 114 when a large levitation occurs. As a result, a paper jam may occur in the gap. Further, there is a risk of damaging the recording head 114 due to such a paper jam.

In order to solve this problem, the following Patent Document 2 discloses an image forming apparatus including a suction unit 610 that sucks the paper P toward the transport belt 600 and sucks the paper P onto the transport belt 600. As shown in FIG. 6 (b), the conveyance belt 600 is provided with a plurality of suction holes H, and air is sucked from the suction holes by a suction device 611 such as an exhaust fan. It is a technology that makes it adsorb.
JP 2006-88568 A Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2001-2284

  However, the above prior art has the following problems.

  That is, the above levitation can occur immediately after the leading edge of the paper P exits the paper delivery unit 660. However, there is no means for sucking the paper P onto the transport belt 600 until the paper P reaches the suction means 610 after it leaves the paper delivery unit 660. By reducing the size of the support roller 603, it is possible to reduce the risk of levitation by bringing the suction means 610 closer to the paper discharge unit 660. It will cause to generate.

  In addition, when continuous printing is performed, since the sheets are sequentially sent out on the suction unit 610, a sufficient suction force can be obtained at the paper input end of the suction unit 610. However, when only one sheet is printed or the first sheet during continuous printing has no preceding sheet on the suction unit 610, the suction force at the paper input end is weakened.

  Therefore, there is a risk that the above-mentioned floating occurs before the paper P enters the gap between the recording head 114 and the paper transport unit 650. As a result, the above-described paper jam or the like is caused.

  In order to avoid such a situation, in this prior art, a pressure roller 606 that presses the paper P to the transport belt 600 immediately before the paper P enters the gap is provided. However, when such a pressure roller 606 is provided, there is a problem that the entire image forming apparatus is increased in size. In particular, when a motor for driving the pressure roller 606 is newly provided, the increase in size becomes more remarkable.

  The present invention has been made in view of such problems, and is a paper transport device capable of performing high-quality printing by reliably adsorbing paper to a transport belt while keeping the entire apparatus small. In addition, an object of the present invention is to provide an ink jet recording apparatus to which this is applied.

  In order to achieve the above object, the present invention employs the following means.

  First, the present invention is provided with a paper feeding section that sandwiches and feeds paper between a support roller and a paper pressing roller, and further includes a conveying belt having a plurality of suction holes, and this conveying belt by sucking air from the suction holes. A paper transport unit having suction means for adsorbing the paper.

  In such a paper transport device, a power source that applies a DC voltage between the support roller and the paper pressing roller and an insulating layer that covers at least one surface of the support roller and the paper pressing roller are provided. . As a result, the sheet is electrostatically adsorbed to the conveyance belt from the time the sheet exits the sheet delivery section to the sheet conveyance section. Therefore, there is no need to provide a special member such as a pressure roller as in the prior art, which can contribute to the downsizing of the entire apparatus.

  Further, a roller static eliminator for neutralizing the insulating layer and a belt static eliminator for neutralizing the transport belt are provided. As a result, excessively charged static electricity is discharged to the support roller, the paper pressing roller, and the conveyor belt, thereby ensuring safety.

  The invention is also disclosed for an ink jet recording apparatus to which such a paper transport apparatus is applied.

  As described above, high-quality printing can be performed by reliably adsorbing the paper to the transport belt while keeping the entire apparatus small without increasing the size of the entire apparatus.

  Hereinafter, the best mode for carrying out the paper conveying apparatus and the ink jet recording apparatus of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings.

  FIG. 1 is an internal structure diagram of an embodiment of an ink jet recording apparatus 100 according to the present invention.

  The ink jet recording apparatus 100 includes a paper feed cassette 111 disposed at a lower portion, an ink tank 112 disposed above the paper feed cassette 111, and a paper transport unit 250 disposed above the ink tank 112. Further, above the sheet conveying unit 250, a recording head 114 and a sheet conveying path 116 disposed at the right end of the apparatus are provided.

  The paper feed cassette 111 stores paper P to be printed, and in this paper feed cassette 111, a paper feed roller 121 for feeding paper is arranged at the end on the paper transport path 116 side. . The paper transport path 116 is configured by a guide plate that guides the paper P fed from the paper feed cassette 111 to the paper delivery unit 260.

In the paper transport path 116, a transport roller pair 122 for transporting the fed paper is disposed on the paper feed cassette 111 side. In the paper transport path 116, a second transport roller pair 123 that transports the paper sent out by the transport roller pair 122, and the paper that has been transported through the paper transport path 116 is temporarily on standby in order to synchronize the printing timing with the paper transport. In addition, a registration roller pair 124 that performs skew correction and sends the paper to the paper sending unit 260 in accordance with the printing timing is further provided.
The ink tank 112 includes ink tanks 112K, 112C, 112M, and 112Y arranged side by side in the left-right direction, and stores black (K), cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y) ink, respectively. is doing.

  The paper transport unit 250 transports the paper P fed by the paper delivery unit 260 to the left, and the configuration thereof will be described later.

  Further, a discharge roller pair 129 is disposed on the left side of the sheet conveying unit 250, and a discharge port 130 is formed in the left side wall of the device on the left side of the discharge roller pair 129. A discharge tray 131 protruding outside the apparatus is disposed.

  The recording head 114 is supported at a printing position where the nozzle surface 141 on the lower surface is spaced from the sheet conveying surface of the sheet conveying unit 250 by a minute distance of 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm. The recording head 114 is composed of line heads 114K, 114C, 114M, 114Y (see FIG. 5) arranged side by side in the left-right direction. Each of the line heads 114K, 114C, 114M, and 114Y ejects black (K), cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y) inks with the following structure.

  On the nozzle surface 141 of the recording head 114, for each of the line heads 114K, 114C, 114M, 114Y, a large number of nozzles are arranged in the paper width direction by the paper width (see FIG. 5). Such a recording head is called a line type. Each of these nozzles communicates with a pressurizing chamber (not shown) formed corresponding to each nozzle in the line head, and each pressurizing chamber is further formed in each line head 114K, 114C, 114M, 114Y. The ink chamber communicates with the ink chamber (not shown). Each of the line heads 114K, 114C, 114M, 114Y communicates with the ink tanks 112K, 112C, 112M, 112Y through corresponding ink supply tubes (not shown).

Further, a drying device 115 for drying the ink ejected from the line heads 114K, 114C, 114M, and 114Y onto the paper P is disposed downstream of the recording head 114.
FIG. 2 (a) is a structural diagram of the paper transport unit 250 and the paper delivery unit 260. FIG. First, similarly to the background art described above, the paper transport unit 250 is disposed below the horizontally disposed recording heads 114. In the paper transport unit 250, an endless rubber material transport belt 600 is stretched by a driving roller 601, a tension roller 602, and a support roller 203.

  On the other hand, a paper presser roller 204 is disposed above the support roller 203. A paper feed unit 260 that sandwiches the paper P between the support roller 203 and the paper presser roller 204 and sends it to the paper transport unit 250 is configured. Yes. The paper P delivered in the direction of arrow A from the paper delivery unit 260 rotates the conveyance belt 600 counterclockwise by the operation of the driving roller 601, so that the gap between the recording head 114 and the paper conveyance unit 650 is increased in seconds. It passes at a high speed of 0.5m to 1.5m.

  As described in the background art above, it is necessary to prevent the sheet P from floating from the transport belt 600 during this passage. Therefore, the present invention also includes a suction unit 610 that sucks the paper P onto the transport belt 600 by sucking air from the outside to the inside of the transport belt 600, as in the background art. That is, as shown in FIG. 6B, a plurality of suction holes H are provided in the transport belt 600, and air is sucked from the suction holes by a suction device 611 such as a vacuum pump, whereby the paper P is transported from the transport belt 600. Adsorb to.

  However, there is no means for sucking the paper P to the transport belt 600 in the section from the paper P exiting the paper delivery unit 260 to the suction means 610. Therefore, in the present invention, the following means is adopted so that the paper P can be sucked to the transport belt 600 even in the above section.

  First, a power source 205 for applying a DC voltage is provided between the support roller 203 and the paper pressing roller 204 (FIG. 2 (a)). Then, an insulating layer 206 is provided to cover at least one surface of the support roller 203 and the paper pressing roller 204 (FIG. 2 (b)). Hereinafter, the case where the insulating layer 206 is provided only on the support roller 203 will be described as an example.

  When such means is employed, an electric field E is generated between the support roller 203 and the paper pressing roller 204 as shown in FIG. Then, induced by the electric field E, a positive charge is generated on the lower surface of the paper pressing roller 204 and a negative charge is generated on the upper surface of the paper P.

  Similarly, a positive charge is generated on the lower surface of the paper P, and a negative charge is generated on the upper surface of the rubber-made conveyance belt 600. Further, a positive charge is generated on the lower surface of the conveyor belt 600, and a negative charge is generated on the upper surface of the insulating layer 206. Furthermore, positive charges are generated on the lower surface of the insulating layer 206, and negative charges are generated on the upper surface of the support roller 203.

  Then, an electrical attractive force is generated between the paper P and the conveying belt 600 by the same principle as the attractive force between the electrode plates of the capacitor. Due to this attractive force, the paper P is electrostatically attracted to the transport belt 600.

  That is, according to the present invention, in the section from the sheet P exiting the sheet delivery unit 260 to the suction unit 610, the sheet P is attracted to the transport belt 600 by the electrostatic adsorption, and the sheet P is attracted to the suction unit 610. After that, the sheet P is attracted to the transport belt 600 by the suction means 610. The main reason for adopting such a configuration is as follows.

In the background art described above, there is no means for sucking the paper P to the transport belt 600 in the section from the paper P exiting the paper delivery unit 260 to the suction means 610. For this reason, a pressure roller 606 for pressure-bonding the paper P to the conveyance belt 600 is provided at the end of this section (see FIG. 6 (a)).
However, when such a pressure roller 606 is provided, there is a problem that the entire image forming apparatus is increased in size. In addition, if the paper P is thick paper such as glossy paper for photography, the leading edge may float from the conveyor belt 600 due to the rigidity of the paper after passing through the pressure roller 606. As it was insufficient.

  In particular, when the leading end of the paper P reaches the suction unit 610, the suction force of the suction unit 610 is weak. That is, at the stage where the suction hole H (see FIG. 6B) of the conveyor belt 600 is only partially covered by the paper P, the air passes through the other suction holes H, so the suction force is weak. is there. In this respect, according to the present invention, the leading end portion of the paper P is also reliably electrostatically attracted, and thus such a problem does not occur.

  On the other hand, in the present invention, this electrostatic adsorption and the suction by the air of the suction means 610 are used in combination, and the main purpose is as follows.

  That is, when the paper P passes through the section, printing by the recording head 114 is started, but in the inkjet recording apparatus 100, liquid ink is ejected onto the paper P. When the liquid adheres to the paper P in this way, the positive and negative charges generated on the paper P are neutralized through the liquid as described above, and the electrostatic adsorption effect is rapidly reduced.

  For this reason, as shown in FIG. 4 in the background art, in the case of a recording method in which printing is performed by main scanning the carriage 403, the paper P is attracted to the conveyance belt 600 only at the main scanning position of the carriage 403. That was enough. However, as shown in FIG. 5, when the recording head 114 is arranged over a long interval in the conveyance direction of the sheet P, the sheet P is adsorbed to the conveyance belt 600 over the entire interval. There is a need. Therefore, in the present invention, after the paper P passes through the section, the suction of the suction means 610 is performed by air.

  In the present invention, the surface of the support roller 203 is covered with the insulating layer 206. The main purpose is as follows.

  First, as described above, the conveying belt 600 is provided with a plurality of suction holes H. Therefore, if the insulating layer 206 is not provided, the charge generated on the surface of the conveyor belt 600 as described above partially leaks to the metal support roller 203 through the suction hole H, and sufficient electrostatic adsorption A situation where power cannot be obtained can occur.

  Second, by adjusting the material and layer thickness of the insulating layer 206 in accordance with the application of the ink jet recording apparatus 100, it is possible to realize an appropriate electrostatic attraction force. For example, ordinary copying paper and glossy paper for photography as described above have different thicknesses and electrical characteristics, so that the required electrostatic attraction force also differs. Therefore, depending on the type of paper on which the inkjet recording apparatus 100 is mainly used for printing, for example, by changing the material (dielectric constant) of the insulating layer 206 at the design stage, an optimum electrostatic Adsorption power can be made feasible. Of course, the voltage of the power source 205 can also be adjusted appropriately.

By the way, when the ink jet recording apparatus 100 is operated for a long time with such a configuration, there is a possibility that excessive charges are accumulated in the insulating layer 206 and the conveyor belt 600. If this is left unattended, there is a danger, for example, that the user may receive an electric shock when performing maintenance or inspection inside the apparatus.
Further, if such excessive charging is allowed, the sheet P is excessively electrostatically attracted to the conveyance belt 600, and this time, after printing, the sheet P becomes difficult to peel off from the conveyance belt, and the sheet P is removed from the discharge roller pair 129. There is a possibility that it cannot be discharged. Therefore, the strength of electrostatic adsorption is not the better, and the strength should be appropriately determined in consideration of the rigidity of the paper P.

  Therefore, the ink jet recording apparatus 100 of the present invention is provided with a roller neutralizer 271 that neutralizes the insulating layer 206 and a belt neutralizer 272 that neutralizes the transport belt 600. As a result, excessively charged static electricity is discharged to the support roller 203 and the conveyor belt 600, ensuring the safety of the user and enabling normal paper discharge.

Here, in FIG. 2, a belt static eliminator 272 is disposed above the drive roller 601. In this case, since the ink is attached to the paper P on the transport belt 600, it is preferable to use a non-contact type static eliminator such as a corona charger as the belt static eliminator 272.
As described above, the stronger the electrostatic adsorption, the better. From this point of view, it can be said that it is significant to adopt a configuration in which the strength of the electrostatic adsorption can be adjusted by changing the material and the layer pressure of the insulating layer 206 as in the present invention.

  As described above, according to the present invention, the paper P can be reliably adsorbed to the transport belt 600 in all the printing processes, and high-speed and beautiful printing can be performed and paper jams can be prevented. Can do.

  In the above, the case where the insulating layer 206 is provided only on the support roller 203 has been described as an example. However, if the insulating layer 206 is provided on at least one of the support roller 203 and the paper pressing roller 204, the object of the present invention is described. Is achieved.

  Further, depending on the embodiment, the electrostatic force of the paper feeding section 260 is applied only when using thick paper such as photographic paper with strong paper, or the voltage applied from the power source 205 than when using plain paper. When printing only one sheet at a time, when the length of the paper row in the paper transport direction is shorter than the length of the suction means (when using small paper such as postcards), or using paper with a small paper width In this case, in the case of the first and last one of continuous printing of paper that is substantially the same as the width of the conveyor belt, electrostatic adsorption of the paper feeding unit 260 is applied to perform continuous printing of paper that is substantially equal to the width of the conveyor belt. Except for the first sheet and the last one, the electrostatic adsorption action may be reduced or weakened in order to reduce the influence of ozone generated by excessively adsorbing the paper or operating the above-mentioned static eliminator. Good.

  The sheet conveying apparatus and the ink jet recording apparatus according to the present invention have a special member such as a pressure roller for electrostatically adsorbing the sheet to the conveying belt from when the sheet leaves the sheet feeding unit to the sheet conveying unit. There is no need to provide. Therefore, high-quality printing can be performed at high speed by reliably adsorbing the sheet to the transport belt while keeping the entire apparatus small. Therefore, it is useful as an ink jet recording apparatus such as a printer, a copying machine, or a multifunction peripheral, and a paper conveying apparatus applied to them.
