    Abstract: The present invention relates to a machine for marking articles, comprising a marking head suitable for applying a marking force on an article along a marking axis. The marking head comprises a carriage movable in translation along the marking axis and along a transverse axis, which is perpendicular to the marking axis (X10). The marking head also comprises a first roller and a second roller carried by the carriage, rotatable respectively around a first axis and a second axis each located in a plane perpendicular to the marking axis. The rollers are capable of alternately marking the same article or two successive articles, depending on movements of the carriage. The invention also relates to a method for marking articles.

  • Patent number: 6705224
    Abstract: In a stamp apparatus, a paper-sheet object is conveyed in the arrow direction between a presser roller and an impress hub having a predetermined character/symbol string. Since a cam is rotated in the arrow direction by a rotary solenoid, it makes the presser roller approach the impress hub via a roller and an arm. A separating lever is rotated in the arrow direction by a rotary solenoid from an initial position (position shown in the drawing) to a siding position. When the paper-sheet object is conveyed to between the presser roller and the impress hub, a stamp bonded on the bottom surface of the paper-sheet object is canceled with a postmark. A presser mechanism suppresses a rebound produced when the presser roller starts to urge the paper-sheet object, and also maintains a predetermined urging pressure of the presser roller relative to the paper-sheet object having a predetermined thickness or less.

  • Patent number: 4273043
    Abstract: An apparatus for printing labels is disclosed, and more particularly a portable apparatus which will reproduce indicia of a master sheet on a continuous web substrate and thereafter cut the web into individual labels. The apparatus is provided with a rotatable plate roller, to which the master sheet is attached. A fountain solution module is provided which applies a fountain solution to the surface of the master sheet, and an ink module is provided which supplies ink to the master sheet in the areas which the fountain solution has not adhered. A blanket roller is provided having a diameter equal to the plate roller and is in contact therewith. The plate and blanket rollers are driven at equal speed such that the ink on the plate roller will be accurately transferred to the blanket roller. In addition, a freewheeling impression roller is provided which is mounted for reciprocating movement into and out of contact with the blanket roller.
