Types of Motors for Wide Format Printers
There are several types of motors used in wide format printers, including:
Scan motorsA scan motor is a type of motor that is used to control the movement of the print head in a large format printer. In large format printers, the print head is typically mounted on a carriage that moves back and forth across the substrate, depositing ink or toner as it goes. The scan motor is responsible for controlling the movement of the carriage and the print head, ensuring that the image is printed accurately and with the desired resolution.
Servo motorsA servo motor is a type of motor that is used to control the position, velocity, or torque of a mechanism. In large format printers, servo motors are used to control the movement of the print head, the movement of the substrate, or the movement of other components such as rollers or gears.
Feed motorsA feed motor is a type of motor that is used to control the movement of the substrate in a large format printer. In large format printers, the substrate (such as paper, cardboard, or vinyl) is typically fed through the printer by a series of rollers or other mechanical components that are driven by the feed motor.
Pump motorsA pump motor is a type of motor that is used to control the flow of ink or other fluids in a large format printer. In large format printers that use continuous inkjet technology, the pump motor is responsible for generating the high-pressure flow of ink that is used to eject droplets of ink onto the substrate. The pump motor is typically controlled using a variety of methods, including pulse width modulation (PWM), analog voltage inputs, or digital control signals.
