BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a tape storage cassette for storing two tapes of approximately the same width to be joined and cut, and a printing apparatus to a tape-type printing medium.

Background Art Conventionally, an apparatus for printing characters on a non-adhesive surface of an adhesive tape is known. In this kind of device, a printing tape suitable for attaching a character such as a name to a desired symmetrical object can be made, but since the printing surface is exposed, printing characters are erased or scratched. Therefore, the applicant of the present application is an apparatus for producing a printing tape in which the printing surface is not exposed, and a reverse factor is applied to a transparent film tape by Japanese Patent Application No. 62 (1987) -294471, etc. A printing device configured to adhere a double-sided tape of approximately the same width as a film tape was proposed.

By the way, in the apparatus of this proposal, since the film tape which prints and the double-sided tape which adhere to the printing surface are respectively attached to the apparatus separately, attachment and detachment of these tapes to the apparatus were complicated. In order to solve such a problem, each tape may be integrally stored in the cassette and mounted in the printing apparatus. However, simply storing each tape in the cassette does not provide efficient installation in the printing apparatus.

That is, since each of the tapes is bonded to the outside of the cassette after the printing of the film tape, the tapes are attached to the printing apparatus by simply storing both tapes in the cassette and protruding the tip of the tape to the outside. Each time, the front end of both tapes must be matched and guided to the joint, and the mounting work becomes complicated.

Therefore, an object of the present invention is to provide a tape storage cassette and a printing apparatus for a tape-type printing medium suitable for mounting each tape, for an apparatus for joining and cutting two tapes, such as the printing apparatus described above. Was done.

That is, the present invention made to achieve the above object is at least two tapes detachably mounted to a tape conveying apparatus having a cutter, and are mated in the width direction by a joining mechanism disposed upstream of the conveying path than the cutter, and joined together. A tape storage cassette for storing a tape, comprising: a cassette case and at least two types of tapes wound around the tape spool and stored in the cassette case and disposed in the cassette case, wherein the at least two kinds of tapes are disposed in the cassette case. And a guide member which is disposed in the vicinity of the outlet, and the guide member for guiding the tape to the tape joining position of the joining mechanism.

The present invention also provides a tape-type print medium, a cassette case for storing the tape-type print medium, a print head for printing on the tape-type print medium, and a tape-type print medium printed by the print head. A transfer mechanism for guiding the transfer mechanism, a guide member for guiding the tape-type printing medium transferred by the transfer mechanism to the wall of the cassette case, a transfer machine for cutting the tape-type printing medium transferred by the transfer mechanism, and the cutting machine. And a support member for supporting the cutter so that the blade of the cutter is pressed against the wall of the cassette case through the tape-type printing medium, and a main body for detachably supporting the cassette case. SUMMARY A printing apparatus for a tape-type printing medium is provided.

In the tape storage cassette of the present invention configured as described above, the two tapes housed in the cassette are guided to the tape joining position of the joining mechanism for joining the tapes by the guide member disposed near the tape outlet. Therefore, when the tape storage cassette is detached from the tape conveying apparatus having the cutter, the tape drawn out can be detached with the tape retained at its joining position. There is no need. In the apparatus in which the tape storage cassette is mounted, since the two tapes joined by the joining mechanism are cut by a cutter, even if the tape storage cassette is removed from the apparatus, the tape from the tape joining position to the cutter is joined. It does not need to match both tapes every time it is mounted.

Next, a tape storage cassette and a printing apparatus for a tape-type printing medium according to the embodiment to which the present invention is applied will be described together with the drawings.

In the tape storage cassette 1 of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1 showing an exploded perspective view, the film tape spool 5 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 on which the transparent film tape 3 is wound have their ink surfaces. It is substantially the same width as the ribbon winding spool 11 and the film tape 3 which wind the ribbon supply spool 9 wound inside and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 drawn out from the ribbon supply spool 9. The double-sided tape 13 on which the release paper is adhered only to the surface is wound on the double-sided tape spool 15 wound around the release paper, and the registration roller 17 for matching the double-sided tape 13 and the film tape 3 to the cassette case. The support portions S1 to S5 respectively formed in the bottom of the lid 21 and the cassette case 19 facing the lid 21 by storing in the 19 and closing the opening with the lid 21. The respective parts are rotatably fixed through.

The tape storage cassette 1 is detachably mounted to a printing device for inverting a desired character, and performs a reverse factor on the film tape 3 using the thermal transfer ribbon 7, and on the printing surface a double-sided tape ( 13) are used to make a printed tape with characters printed on them.

Therefore, the tape storing cassette 1 is formed with recesses 25 for accommodating the thermal head 23, which is the printhead shown in FIG. 2, fixed to the printing apparatus side. Guide plates 27 and 29 are provided on the outer and inner circumferential edges to secure a space for accommodating the thermal head 23. 2 shows the mounting state of the tape storage cassette 1 to the printing device, and the following description will focus on the second drawing.

That is, the film tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 are guided to the recessed portion 25 in a state in which the film tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 are opposed to each other through the ink surface of the thermal transfer ribbon 7 by the guide pins 31, and thus the film has been guided. The film tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon are guided by the guide plates 27 and 29 so that the tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 do not block the space necessary for accommodating the thermal head 23. It regulates driving route with (7). In addition, the plate springs which apply the film tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 guided to the recessed portion 25 outward to the guide plate 29 mounted on the inner peripheral edge of the recessed portion 25 in an outward direction. 33 is provided, and the space for accommodating the thermal head 23 can be reliably ensured by this.

Therefore, when the tape storage cassette 1 is attached to the printing apparatus, the thermal head 23 is disposed on the rear surface of the thermal transfer ribbon 7, and is provided on the printing apparatus side, and the thermal head 23 is provided with respect to the thermal head 23. By pressing the film tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 with the thermal head 23 by the foldable platen roller 35, it is possible to print the desired inverted characters on the film tape 3. do.

Next, the thermal transfer ribbon 7 passing through the recess 25 is wound around the ribbon winding spool 11 through the end 29a of the guide plate 29, and the film tape 3 is fitted with the registration roller 17. It is guided out of the cassette through. When the registration roller 17 and the ribbon winding spool 11 are attached to the printing device, the tape conveying body 37 and the ribbon winding body on the printing device side that are reversely rotated by each other by a drive motor and a power transmission mechanism (not shown). 39, and are rotated in the directions of arrows A and B, respectively, through these parts.

Therefore, the thermal transfer ribbon 7 and the film tape 3 are driven to the traveling path of the guide pin 31 → guide plate 27 → recess 25 by this rotational drive. When the thermal transfer ribbon 7 and the film tape 3 are drawn out from each spool by inertia by the inertia, and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 and the film tape 3 are relaxed in the recessed part 25, the film tape 3 It is impossible to perform the reversal factor to) satisfactorily. Therefore, in the tape storing cassette 1, the plate spring 40 which exerts a force by pressing the thermal transfer ribbon 7 and the film tape 3 from the outside at the position of the guide pin 31 is arrange | positioned, and thereby a thermal transfer ribbon Back tension is given to (7) and the film tape 3, and the relaxation of the thermal transfer ribbon 7 and the film tape 3 in the recessed part 25 is prevented. Moreover, the separator film 41 which shields these parts is also arrange | positioned so that it may not adhere to the thermal transfer ribbon 7 and the film tape 3 along this running route. Then, the film tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 are provided with back tensions independent from each other by the separator film 41 and the leaf spring 40, and one of the film tape 3 and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 is provided. Drawing out for some reason does not affect running on the other side.

Next, the registration roller 17 not only aligns the film tape 3 and the double-sided tape, but is also disposed on the printing device side and cooperates with the feed roller 42 foldable with respect to the registration roller 17. The adhesive surface of the double-sided tape 13 is pressed to the printing surface of (3), and both tapes are bonded together, and as shown in FIG. 1, flanges for restricting the movement of both tapes in the width direction at both ends thereof. 17a and 17b are formed at right angles to the roller surface.

The conveying roller 42 is supported on the support body 43 which is rotatably fixed around the shaft 43a on the printing device side, and after attaching the tape storage cassette 1 to the printing device, a biasing member (not shown) is shown. The film tape 3 and the double-sided tape 13 are pressed against the roller surface of the registration roller 17 by applying a force to the support body 43 in the direction of arrow C by means of these.

The platen roller 35 is also supported by the support 43. The platen roller 35, like the feed roller 42, applies a force to the support 43 in the direction of an arrow C, so that the film tape ( 3) and the thermal transfer ribbon 7 are pressed against the thermal head 23. In addition, the platen roller 35 and the feed roller 42 are formed on an elastic body such as rubber so as not to damage the film tape 3 during pressing and to obtain a predetermined drag force and frictional force. It is formed by.

Next, the guide which guides the film tape 3 to the bonding position E with the double-sided tape 13 on the registration roller 17 on the path | route from the recessed part 25 of the film tape 3 to the registration roller 17. A plate 45 is formed, and at both ends thereof, that is, the lid 21 and the cassette case 19 shown in Fig. 1, a restricting portion 47a in which the width direction of the film tape 3 restricts movement, and 47b is formed.

On the other hand, in the path from the double-sided tape 13 to the registration roller 17, a guide roller made of a silicone resin for preventing the double-sided tape 13 from adhering to another member such as the thermal transfer ribbon 7 in the cassette. 49 is disposed, and the double-sided tape 13 having passed through the path is guided to the joining position E with the film tape 3 by the roller surface of the registration roller 17.

In this way, the bonded body (that is, the printing tape) of the film tape 3 and the double-sided tape 13 joined by the coordination of the registration roller 17 and the transfer roller 42 is the tape pressing member 50 disposed at the outlet. Although it is supposed to be guided to the outside of the cassette through the tape running path outside the cassette case 19, a receiving portion 55 which receives the cutting edge 53 of the tape cutting device 51 mounted on the printing device is formed. After the printing tape is prepared, the tape cutting device 51 is operated to press the cutting blade 53 against the receiving portion 55 so that the printing tape can be transferred. Then, the tape cutting device 51 is rotatably fixed to the printing device side, the cutting blade support body 57 with the cutting blade 53 mounted on the tip, and the cutting blade support 57 in the direction of arrow F. It consists of the rotational arm 59 for rotation, and it can be cut | disconnected by moving the rotational arm 59 to arrow G direction manually.

In this manner, the tape storage cassette of this embodiment includes a matching roller 17 for matching and joining the film tape 3 and the double-sided tape 13, and a cutting edge 53 for cutting the printing tape created by the joining. A receiving part 55 is provided, and when the printing tape is attached to the printing device to prepare the printing tape, the registration roller 17 and the receiving part 55, the feed roller 42 and the tape cutting device disposed on the printing device side are provided. By the cooperation with 51, the film tape 3 and the double-sided tape 13 are bonded and cut | disconnected. Moreover, in the cassette case 19, the film tape 3 is guided to the joining position E by the guide pin 31, the guide plate 27, and the guide plate 45, and the double-sided tape 13 is the guide roller. (49) and the roller surface of the joining roller 17 are guided to the joining position E, and the printing tape after joining is guided to the receiving part 55 which becomes the tape cutting position via the tape pressing member 50. As shown in FIG.

Therefore, for example, in order to create printing tapes of different colors, the tape storage cassettes are separated from the printing apparatus, and when the other tape storage cassettes having different thermal transfer ribbons are mounted, for example, the tape storage cassettes are printed from the printing apparatus. When the platen roller 35 and the transfer roller 42 are separated from the tape storage cassette 1, the film tape 3 and the double-sided tape 13 are separated to the bonding position E while being separated. In the case of mounting again, each tape can be attached to the printing apparatus without being guided by hand to the bonding position E. FIG. In addition, since the tape from the joining position E to the cutting position remains joined, work such as joining and joining both tapes at the time of mounting is also unnecessary, and the mounting work to the printing apparatus is simplified. In the cassette case 19, since the film tape 3 is pressed by the leaf spring 40 at the position of the guide pin 31, a force is applied, so that when the tape storage cassette 1 is separated from the printing device, the film When the joint between the tape 3 and the double-sided tape 13 does not come out and the tape storage cassette 1 is stored in a single body, each tape is separated from the printing device. You can keep it.

In the above embodiment, the tape storage cassette and the printing apparatus for the tape-type printing medium provided with the receiving portion 55 of the registration roller 17 and the cutting blade 53 are described. Also in the present invention, the tape storage cassette can be easily attached to or detached from the printing device. Then, as a second embodiment of the present invention, a tape storing cassette and a tape used when the receiving roller 17 and the receiving portion 55 of the cutting blade 53 of the above embodiment are mounted on the printing apparatus side. A printing apparatus on a type printing medium will be described with reference to FIG. In addition, in FIG. 3, the part same as the said Example is shown with the same number, and detailed description is abbreviate | omitted.

As shown in FIG. 3, in the printing apparatus to which the tape storage cassette 1 'of this embodiment is mounted, the registration roller 17' and the receiving part 55 'of the cutting blade 53' are arrange | positioned, and the tape The film tape 3 'and the double-sided tape 13' drawn out from the storage cassette 1 'are matched, pressed and cut at the printing apparatus side.

The running path of the double-sided tape 13 'is provided on the outer wall of the guide pin 67 and the cassette case 19' formed on the release paper side of the double-sided tape 13 ', and on the adhesive surface side of the double-sided tape 13'. It is formed by two guide rollers 69a and 69b made of excreted silicone resin and the like, and the double-sided tape 13 'is guided by guiding the double-sided tape 13' according to the traveling route. It is possible to guide to the bonding position E 'with the film tape 3' on ').

As a result, even in the tape storage cassette 1 'of the present embodiment, the film tape 3' and the double-sided tape 13 'can be separated from the printing apparatus in the state of guiding them to the bonding position E', and upon remounting, Can simplify the installation work.

As mentioned above, according to the tape storage cassette of this invention, since the guide member which guides the two tapes stored in a cassette to the joining position is provided, it is a device in the state which guided each tape to the joining position. Can be removed from the device, and the mounting operation when the device is mounted on the device is simplified. In addition, since the tape is in the state of being bonded downstream from the joining position, it is not necessary to refit both tapes at the time of mounting.

In addition, the wall of the cassette case serves as a receiving part of the blade of the cutter, so that it is easily damaged. However, this cassette case is replaced when the stored tape-type printing medium is at the end of its life, so even if the wall is damaged, the cassette case is replaced with a new cassette case before the cutting function is impaired. In this way, by using the wall of the cassette case on the premise of replacement, as a receiving part of the blade of the cutter, a separate member is deliberately provided as the receiving part of the blade, thereby lowering the running cost and simplifying the configuration.
