Abstract: An ink replenish container comprises a container main body that is able to store the ink; an ink outlet formation member, attached to a front end side of the container main body, to form an ink outlet; and a cap attachable to a front end side of the ink outlet formation member. The ink outlet includes an outer circumferential surface and an inner circumferential surface located inward of the outer circumferential surface, the inner circumferential surface surrounding an opening through which the ink passes. The cap includes a first protrusion that is configured to contact with the outer circumferential surface of the ink outlet to form a first exit seal portion, and a second protrusion that is configured to contact with the inner circumferential surface of the ink outlet to form a second exit seal portion.
Abstract: An ink bottle comprises a container main body configured to contain ink that is to be supplied to an ink tank, an ink outlet forming portion provided on an end of the container main body and configured to include an ink outlet that causes the ink to be flowed out from the container main body, and a valve provided in the ink outlet forming portion and configured to seal the ink outlet in an openable and closable manner. The ink outlet is formed in an end face of the ink outlet forming portion. The end face is arranged to face an opposite side of the ink outlet forming portion that is opposite to a container main body side thereof. A first recess is formed in an outer side portion of the ink outlet on the end face to be recessed toward the container main body side.
Abstract: An ink replenish container comprises a container main body that is able to store the ink; and an ink outlet formation member, attached to a front end side of the container main body, to form an ink outlet. The container main body includes a screw formation portion having a screw for engaging with the ink outlet formation member, and a shoulder portion provided on a front end side of the screw formation portion. The ink outlet formation member includes an abutting portion that abuts the shoulder portion.
Abstract: An ink replenish adjunctive device is used to replenish an ink to an ink tank that includes an ink inlet member having a flow path in an axial direction. The ink replenish adjunctive device includes a connection portion having an end that is connectable to the ink inlet member in a liquid-tight state, and an ink inflow portion that is configured to allow the ink flow toward the connection portion.
Abstract: A further improvement in convenience is desired in conventional liquid ejecting systems. A liquid supplying unit is mountable to a carriage that has a first projection, a second projection and a liquid introduction needle. The unit includes six wall portions. The first wall portion is provided with a liquid supplying portion connectable to a liquid introduction needle, a first recess portion adapted to receive the first projection, and a second recess portion adapted to receive the second projection. In a planar view of the first wall portion, the liquid supplying portion is positioned closer to the fifth wall portion than to the sixth wall portion, and when the first wall portion is equally divided into a first region, a second region and a third region, the first recess portion is positioned in the first region, and the second recess portion is positioned in the third region.
