  • Patent number: 10112395
    Abstract: An inkjet printer has a print bar system comprising a print bar and a plurality of selectively replaceable print heads attached to the print bar. The system comprises a receptor on the bar, for installation of a print head, each print head having a rear face for insertion in said receptor in a first direction. A latch is provided, pivoted on the bar. The latch has a user-actuatable handle adapted, during a first movement thereof, to engage a latch member of the latch with a catch on the bar to lock the latch in a lockable position on the bar. A platform is mounted on the latch with freedom to move with respect to the latch in said first direction when the latch is in said lockable position. The platform has a latch electrical connector, adapted to engage a head electrical connector on the print head, by mutual movement of the connectors in said first direction. A bias means urges the platform in said first direction.

  • Publication number: 20180147852
    Abstract: A connection arrangement is between first and second members pivoted together between open and lockable positions. The first member has a first connector and the second member has a second connector, said connectors being adapted to connect by linear movement between them. The first member has a user-actuatable handle adapted, when the first and second members are in said lockable position: during a first movement of the handle, to engage a latch member of the first member with a catch on the second member; and, during a second movement, to move the first and second connectors with respect to one another in a first linear direction between a disengaged and an engaged position of the connectors. A block element on the first member is arranged to prevent said first and second movements of the handle when said first and second members are not in said lockable position.
