Abstract

PURPOSE:To prevent a printing paper sheet from being sucked obliquely by eliminating crosswise shifting of a printing paper sheet at the time of installation. CONSTITUTION:A printer main body 1 comprises a paper feed table 2, wherein edges 3 of widths corresponding to the cross widths of printing paper sheets are provided on the paper install surface of the paper feed table 2. The edges 3 are formed like a staircase, for example, corresponding to the paper widths of a postcard, B5-sized longitudinal dimension, A4-sized longitudinal dimension, B4-sized longitudinal dimension and so on. A difference in level is removed at the lower end of the paper feed table to be flush, so that the lower end of a paper sheet can be sucked in a paper suction port 4 without flexure. The installation of a printing paper sheet is detected by paper sensors (a)-(d) to discriminate the paper size, and the left end position for printing is moved according to the kind of a paper sheet.

【発明の詳細な説明】 DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

【0001】 [0001]

【産業上の利用分野】本発明は情報処理装置等に内蔵するプリンタの印字用紙供給装置に係り、印字用紙を用紙サイズに対応する位置に容易に装着でき、かつ、斜行せずに紙送りするものに関する。 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to a printing sheet feeder of the printer incorporated in the information processing apparatus or the like, can be easily attached to the position corresponding to the printing paper in the paper size and paper feed without skewing on those that.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】情報処理装置に内蔵される印刷装置等の給紙台には、専用の印刷装置に設けられているような移動式の用紙ガイドを設けていないものがあり、このような装置では、給紙台に表示された用紙サイズのマークに合わせて印字用紙を装着し、印字を行っている。 The paper feed table of the printing apparatus or the like incorporated in the Background of the information processing apparatus, there are those provided with no movable paper guide, as provided in a dedicated printer, such a device in, the print paper is installed in accordance with the mark of the displayed paper size in the paper tray, it is doing the printing. しかし、印字用紙をマークに合わせるのは難儀で、装着の都度左右のずれが生じ易く、また、印字用紙が少しでも傾いて装着された場合に印字用紙が斜めに紙送りされ、真っ直ぐに装着されたかどうかを確認するには紙送り操作を行ってみなければわからない等の問題がある。 However, in difficulty to match the print paper mark easily occurs lateral displacement each of the mounting, also printing paper when the printing paper is mounted inclined even slightly is paper feeding obliquely, being straight mounted to determine whether there is a problem such as that do not know if I went a paper feed operation.

【0003】 [0003]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】通常、印字用紙は日本工業規格で定めた用紙、あるいはハガキ等であり、予め用紙の幅がわかっている。 THE INVENTION to be solved INVENTION Normally, the printing paper sheet was determined by Japanese Industrial Standards, or a postcard or the like, is known in advance the paper width. 本発明はこれらの点を勘案し、印刷可能な複数の用紙の何れにも対応可能な用紙ガイドを設け、印字用紙の装着位置ずれ、および斜め装着を防止するものを提供することにある。 The present invention is in consideration of these points, also provided a compatible paper guides to any printable plurality of sheets, shift the mounting position of the printing paper, and to provide those to prevent oblique mounting.

【0004】 [0004]

【課題を解決するための手段】本発明は上述の課題を解決するため、給紙台に装着された印字用紙を所要の印字位置に紙送りして印字を行う印刷装置において、前記給紙台の用紙装着面の両側に印字用紙の横幅寸法に対応する縁を設けてなる印字用紙供給装置を提供するものである。 Since the present invention SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The to solve the problems described above, a printing apparatus which performs printing by feeding paper printing paper mounted on the paper feed table to the desired printing position, the feed table there is provided a both sides printing paper sheet mounting surface of the print sheet feeder formed by providing the corresponding edge width dimension of.

【0005】 [0005]

【作用】以上のように構成したので、本発明による印字用紙供給装置においては、給紙台に複数種類の印字用紙の横幅寸法に対応する幅の縁を階段状に形成し、印字用紙の幅に合う箇所に印字用紙を装着すれば、印字用紙の両端は両側の縁でガイドされ、真っ直ぐに紙送りされる。 Since it is configured as described above [action], in print sheet supply apparatus according to the present invention, the edges of the width corresponding to the width dimension of the plurality of types of print paper in the input stage is formed stepwise, the width of the printing paper if mounting the print paper at a position that meets the both ends of the printing paper is guided by the opposite edges, it is straight paper feed.

【0006】 [0006]

【実施例】以下、図面に基づいて本発明による印字用紙供給装置の実施例を詳細に説明する。 EXAMPLES Hereinafter, an embodiment of a print sheet supply apparatus according to the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. 図1は本発明による印字用紙供給装置の一実施例の要部斜視図である。 Figure 1 is a partial perspective view of an embodiment of a print sheet supply apparatus according to the present invention. 図において、1は印刷装置本体、2は給紙台、3は給紙台2の両側に形成した階段状の縁である。 In the figure, reference numeral 1 denotes a printing apparatus main body, 2 denotes a paper feeding table, 3 is a stepped edge formed on both sides of the paper feed base 2. 4は印字用紙吸入口、5は蓋で、内部にプリンタヘッド等があり、この蓋5を開けてインクリボンの装着等を行う。 4 printing paper inlet, 5 in the lid, there is a printer head or the like therein, performs mounting of the ink ribbon to open the lid 5. a、b、c a, b, c
およびdは用紙センサで、印字用紙の装着による光の遮断を検出する。 And d is a sheet sensor to detect the interruption of light by the mounting of the printing paper.

【0007】縁3は、例えば、ハガキ、B5縦の横幅、 [0007] rim 3, for example, postcard, B5 vertical width,
A4縦の横幅、そしてB4縦の横幅の順に、給紙台3の中心から左右均等寸法になるように振り分けて階段状に形成する。 A4 vertical width, and in the order of B4 vertical width are formed stepwise distribution to be laterally equalized dimension from the center of the sheet supply table 3. 縁3の高さを給紙台2の下端に向かって徐々に低くし、給紙台2の下端では最外縁(B4縦用)のみとし、他の縁の高さをゼロとし、様々な横幅の用紙が全て下端に撓みを生じずに印字用紙吸入口4に吸入されるようにする。 The height of the edge 3 is gradually decreased toward a lower end of the paper feed base 2, and only the outermost (for B4 vertical) at the lower end of the paper feed base 2, a zero height of the other edge, different width paper is to be sucked into the print sheet inlet 4 without causing bending all the lower end. なお、印字用紙の横幅によって用紙の左端位置(印刷開始位置)が異なるので、用紙センサa〜d Since the left edge position of the sheet by the width of printing paper (printing start position) are different, the paper sensor a~d
よりの信号に基づいて印字用紙の種類(横幅)を判別し、印字の左端位置(プリンタヘッドの位置)を自動的に移動する(見掛け上で左側余白を移動する)ようにする。 Type of printing paper (the width) was determined based on the more signals, move the left end position of the print (the position of the printer head) automatically (Move left margins apparently) so. すなわち、図2に示すように、用紙センサa〜d That is, as shown in FIG. 2, the paper sensor a~d
は、はがきが装着された場合は用紙センサdのみ入射光が遮断され(0)、用紙センサa〜cで入射光が検出され(1)、B5用紙が装着された場合は用紙センサc、 , If the postcard is attached is interrupted incident light only the paper sensor d (0), is detected incident light by the sheet sensor a to c (1), if the B5 sheet is mounted sheet sensor c,
dが遮断、用紙センサa、bで入射光が検出され、A4 d is shut off, the incident light is detected by the paper sensor a, b, A4
用紙が装着された場合は用紙センサb〜dが遮断、用紙センサaで入射光が検出され、B4用紙が装着された場合は用紙センサa〜dの全てで入射光が遮断される。 Blocking the sheet sensor b~d If the paper is mounted, is detected incident light by the sheet sensor a, if the B4 paper is attached is cut off the incident light in all of the paper sensor to d. これら用紙センサa〜dよりの信号に基づいて装着された印字用紙の種類を判別する。 On the basis of signals from these sheet sensors a~d determines the type of the mounted printing paper. あるいは、印刷時に用紙の種類を指定すれば、印字の左端位置が用紙幅に対応する位置に自動的に移動するようにしてもよい。 Alternatively, by specifying the type of paper during printing, the left end position of the print may be automatically moved to the position corresponding to the paper width.

【0008】 [0008]

【発明の効果】以上に説明したように、本発明による印字用紙供給装置によれば、印字用紙を給紙台の中央に装着することにより用紙の左右が縁によってガイドされるので、左右の位置ずれが生じず、かつ、斜めに吸入されることがないものであるから、印字用紙の装着ミスによる印刷不良を防止できる。 As described above, according to the present invention, according to the print sheet supply apparatus according to the present invention, since the left and right of the paper is guided by the edges by mounting the printing paper in the center of the paper feed table, the position of the left and right deviation does not occur, and, because those never sucked obliquely, prevent badness printing by mounting errors of the printing paper.
