Description

  The present invention relates to a peeling issue mode in a label printer that can be set to either a continuous issue mode or a peel issue mode.

  A conventional label printer has two functions, a continuous issue mode and a peel issue mode, to print on a label recording sheet. When the continuous issue mode is set, the label printed by the printing unit is issued from the label issuing port as the label recording paper. On the other hand, when the release issuance mode is set, the printed label recording paper is printed and then the base is bent at an acute angle with respect to the direction connecting the printing unit and the label issuing port by the peeling device. The label is stopped in a state where the most part is peeled off and a part of the rear end of the label is temporarily attached to the mount, and the mount is issued from a peel issuing port provided at a position different from the label issuing port. In the peeling issue mode, when a label with a part of the rear end of the label temporarily attached to the mount is removed, the next label is released from the mount and issued from the label issuing port. As described above, the transfer path of the mount after printing in the printing unit differs depending on whether the label is issued in either the continuous issue mode or the peel issue mode. It was necessary to mount the mount.

  Also, the label transfer control differs depending on the difference between the continuous issue mode and the peeling issue mode. For example, in the continuous issuance mode, when the label printing is completed, the label recording paper is controlled so that the printing unit comes to the first printing position of the next label. On the other hand, in the peeling issue mode, the label recording paper is controlled to move so that the label is peeled largely from the backing sheet by the peeling device, and the trailing edge of the label is temporarily attached to the backing sheet. Is done.

  By the way, when a printer command is issued from a conventional host or handy terminal to the printer, it is issued in any issue mode only by mounting the label recording paper so that the mount corresponds to each of the continuous issue mode and the peeling issue mode. The label printer itself could not recognize it. In view of this, a label printer that recognizes whether printing is in one of the issuance modes is disclosed focusing on the fact that the transition path of the mount after printing differs between the continuous issuance mode and the peeling issuance mode. (For example, refer to Patent Document 1).

  If you want to issue continuously with this label printer, it is set in the continuous issue mount path where the mount is transported along with the label even after printing. A mount sensor is provided that detects the presence or absence of the mount so as to face the release issuing mount path.

With such a configuration, if the mount sensor facing the release issuing mount path detects the presence of the mount in this path, it is a set for release issuing, and there is no mount in this path Is detected, it is understood that the set is for continuous issue. As described above, based on the detection result of the mount sensor, it is possible to automatically recognize whether to operate in the label peeling issue mode or in the label continuous issue mode.
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 08-295323

  However, the label printer having the above configuration has the following problems. When the mount is set in the release issuance mount path, it automatically recognizes that it is in the release issuance mode, so if you remove a label temporarily attached to the mount from the label issuance port The next label is automatically peeled off most from the mount and issued from the label issuing port. However, since such a label printer is carried around and frequently moved, the label peeled off due to some impact or wind pressure in the peeling issuing mode is scattered from the mount without permission. As a result, the next peeled label is automatically issued to the label issuing port, which causes a problem that the label is issued in vain.

  In view of this point, the present invention provides a label printer provided with a change-over switch that can set whether a peeled label is automatically issued or manually issued in the peeling issue mode. It is.

In order to solve the above problems, the label printer of the present invention includes a printing unit for printing the label paper comprising a temporarily stuck label continuously a strip of backing sheet, said label from the backing after being printed A peeling device that peels off , a peeling sensor that detects the presence or absence of the label peeled off from the mount, a continuous issuance mode in which the label recording paper is issued after printing, and the label by the peeling device in the label printer and a strip issue mode to be issued is peeled off and the mount, when the strip issue mode, the label by detecting the presence or absence of the label peeled from the base sheet by the peeling sensor It provided an automatic issuance for issuing, transfer switch which can be set to either the manual issued to print the label by the operation of the site worker It is what is.

Label printer of the present invention includes a printing unit for printing the label paper comprising a label which is temporarily stuck in succession belt mount, a peeling device for peeling the labels from the backing sheet after being printed, from the mount A peeling sensor that detects the presence or absence of the peeled label, and is issued after being printed and released to the label and the mount by the peeling device. in the label printer and a that strip issue mode, the when the strip issue mode, the automatic issuance for issuing a label to detect the presence or absence of the label peeled from the base sheet by the peeling sensor, the site worker since changeover switch by the operator can be set to either the manual issued to issue a label is provided, switched Sui While the set Ji automatic issuance, or use the mobile to frequently by or moved, even if the label is peeled off like something impact or wind pressure got scattered without permission, the changeover switch By setting to the manual issue, it is possible to prevent the next peeled label from being automatically issued to the label issuing port. Also, when repeatedly releasing and issuing, by setting the changeover switch to automatic issuing, the next peeled label is automatically issued to the label issuing port by removing the peeled label, so repeated peeling The removed labels can be removed one by one, improving work efficiency.

  In FIG. 5, a changeover switch 27 that can be set to automatic issue or manual issue in the peeling issue mode is provided on the upper surface of the right arm 7a of the main body cover 3. When the changeover switch 27 is set to automatic issuance, it is detected that the label peeled off by the peeling sensor 29 has been removed, and the next peeled label is temporarily attached to the mount. Therefore, the peeling sensor 29 can continuously issue the peeling regardless of the operation of the FEED key 11. On the other hand, when the change-over switch 27 is set to manual issuance, the site worker operates the FEED key 11 to operate the FEED key 11 regardless of the detection result of the peeling sensor 29 that the peeled label has been removed. Since the peeled label is moved to a position where a part of the rear end is temporarily attached to the backing sheet, the peeling can be issued when necessary by operating the FEED key.

  A case where printing is performed in the peeling issue mode in such a configuration will be described. First, as shown in FIG. 1, the main body cover 3 is opened, the label recording paper L is stored in the storage section 28, and then the label recording paper L is pulled out above the upper surface of the printer main body 2 and then the main body cover 3 is removed. close. By closing the main body cover 3, the label recording paper L is sandwiched between the thermal head 22 and the platen roller 16, so that the printing state can be maintained. Next, when the peeling rotation buttons 21a and 21b on both sides are moved inward, the peeling frame 19 is opened as shown in FIG. Then, the label on the leading end of the label recording paper L is peeled off from the mount, the leading end of the mount is pulled out through the strip issuing port 33, and the peeling frame 19 is closed.

  In this way, the power key 10 is turned on in a state where the label recording paper L and the mount are mounted for the peeling issue mode. An issuance command set in advance in a peeling issuance mode is received from a handy terminal (not shown) via the communication means 30, and it is recognized whether the changeover switch 27 is set to automatic issuance or manual issuance. . When the changeover switch 27 is set to automatic issuance, peeling issuance is performed by detecting the presence or absence of a label peeled off by the peeling sensor 29 controlled in the peeling issuing mode. That is, the thermal head 22 is supplied with power from the battery pack 26 and prints out. Whenever one line is printed, the platen roller 16 is driven by one pitch by a drive motor (not shown), and the label recording paper L is transferred. The As shown in FIG. 3, the printed backing of the label recording paper L is folded by the label peeling member 18 and issued from the peeling issuing port 33, but a strong label is printed on the label peeling member 18. The label is moved upward and is issued from the label issuing port 32 without being bent by. At this time, most of the label is peeled off, but the rear end portion of the label is controlled to be temporarily attached to the mount. In the case where the next label is peeled and issued, when the peel issued label is removed, the peel sensor 29 detects the presence or absence of the peeled label, and the next label is printed and peeled and issued. In this way, the same operation is continuously performed up to the set issuance number, and the separation issuance is performed one by one. On the other hand, when the changeover switch 27 is set to manual issuance, the next label is printed by the operation of the FEED key regardless of the detection result of the peeling sensor, and the peeling issuance is issued regardless of the detection result of the peeling sensor. As shown in FIG. 3, the labels are peeled and issued one by one by repeating the operation of the FEED key.

  The label printer 1 is stored in a protective cover (not shown) in such a posture that the label recording paper L faces downward, and this protective cover is used by being hooked on the belt of a field worker. Since the label printer 1 of the present embodiment is carried and used, the changeover switch 27 is set to automatic issue in a state where the issue command set in the peeling issue mode is received via the communication means 30. In this case, peeling can be issued anywhere during the movement, but the label printer 1 is subjected to some impact or wind pressure while moving, and the labels peeled off without being noticed by the site worker. As a result, the next label may be automatically released. In such a case, when it is desired to suspend the issuance of peeling, such as during movement, if the changeover switch 27 is set to manual issuance, the peeling issuance is performed by the operation of the FEED key. be able to. When the predetermined position is reached, the change-over switch 27 is set to automatic issuance, so that a predetermined number of issued labels can be continuously peeled and issued one by one.

  Next, a case where printing is performed in the continuous issue mode will be described. First, the main body cover 3 is opened as shown in FIG. 1, the label recording paper L is stored in the storage section 28, and then the label recording paper L is pulled out above the upper surface of the printer main body 2 and then the main body cover. When 3 is closed, the label recording paper L is sandwiched between the thermal head 22 and the platen roller 16, so that the printing state can be maintained. At this time, the peeling frame 19 is kept closed by the main body cover 3.

  In this way, the power key 10 is turned on with the label recording paper L mounted for the continuous issue mode. An issuance command set in advance in a continuous issuance mode is received from a handy terminal (not shown) via the communication means 30, and is controlled in the continuous issuance mode to perform continuous issuance. That is, the thermal head 22 is supplied with power from the battery pack 26 and prints out. Whenever one line is printed, the platen roller 16 is driven by one pitch by a drive motor (not shown), and the label recording paper L is transferred. The As shown in FIG. 4, the printed labels are issued in a preset number from the label issuing port 32 with the label recording paper L temporarily attached to the mount.

  In this embodiment, a portable label printer has been described. However, the present invention is not limited to a label printer for such a purpose, and is widely applied to a label printer that performs printing on a label by communicating with an external device. can do.
