Search Using a Patent or Publication Number?

TOPIC: In this example, you want to obtain the fulltext of European patent 0813966. You will conduct the search in European Patents Fulltext (File 348). Other fulltext files include German Patents (File 324), U.S. Patents Fulltext (File 652, 654) and WIPO/PCT Patents Fulltext (File 349).

  • To search for patent numbers for countries that use a continuing series (e.g. EP 0813966), enter the two-letter country code, a space, and the one- to eight-digit publication number (usual "serial" number is used for filing numbers) with no leading zeros.
    Example: S PN=EP 813966.
  • For countries that use an annual series (e.g. US 20020000067), enter the two-letter country code, a space, a two-digit year designation (until 1999) or a four-digit year designation (2000-present), and the publication number retaining all leading zeros. (Note: The required number of digits in the publication number can vary by country.)
    Example: S PN=US 20020000067
  • All published patent documents (both granted patents and published applications) are indexed on Dialog with the Patent Number (PN=) prefix.

ABSTRACT EP 813966 A2
  A record head for an electrostatic  ink jet recorder of 
  the present invention is formed with undulation  having a 
  high aspect ratio thereon. Channels formed between nearby 
  ridges  due to the undulation are used as ink passageways. 
  This allows the ridges  to form convex ink meniscuses
  stably at all times at their front  ends or ejection 
  points, and thereby insures stable ejection of ink drops.
  Moreover, ink fed to the front ends of the ridges is 
  constantly circulated  by way of an ink collecting
   member. The circulation of the ink maintains the 
  toner content of  the ink uniform throughout the ejection
  points, and prevents the toner particles from excessively 
  concentrating on the  ejection points where ink ejection
  does not occur.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
    It is therefore an object of the  present invention to 
  provide a record head for an electrostatic ink jet
  recorder capable of ejecting ink drops containing 
  toner particles stably in  an electrostatic field.
    A record head for an electrostatic  ink jet recorder 
  of the present invention includes a head base formed 
  of  an insulating material and so undulated as to form
  ridges at  intervals. Independent ejection electrodes
  are formed of a conductive material  and formed on the
  tops of the ridges or on at least one of the walls of
  the  ridges facing each other and the bottoms of
  channels defined between  the ridges. An ink
  collecting member covers the front end of the head base
  with respect to the direction of ink ejection and the
  bottoms of the  channels, and collects ink overflown
  the head base. A cover covers the top  of the head
  base except for a front portion thereof.

  BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
    The above and other objects,  features and advantages
  of the present invention will become apparent from the
  following detailed description taken with the
  accompanying drawings  in which:
     FIG. 1A is an external perspective  view showing a
  conventional record head for an electrostatic ink jet
  recorder;
     FIG. 1B is a plan view showing the  front end
  portion of the conventional record head;

Claims can be viewed in English, French and Germany in this record.

 

 

 

 

Note: The remainder of this patent has been omitted from this display.

CLAIMS 1. A record head for an electrostatic ink  jet 
recorder, comprising:
   a head base formed of an insulating  material and so 
      undulated as to form ridges at intervals, independent
      ejection electrodes formed of a conductive material
      being formed  on tops of said ridges or on at
      least one of walls of said ridges  facing each other
      and bottoms of channels defined between said  ridges;
   an ink collecting member covering a  front end of said
      head base with respect to a direction of ink  ejection
      and said bottoms of said channels, for collecting ink
      overflown said head base; and
   a cover covering a top of said head  base except for a
      front portion of said head base.
  2. A record head as claimed in claim  1, wherein each of
      said channels between said ridges has a width  small
      enough to generate capillarity, and wherein said
      ridges have a  height greater than the width of said
      channels.
