Abstract
All thermal transfer serial printers currently use one-directional printing. A new bidirectional printing method for a thermal transfer printer is proposed. The new method features an electro-thermal ink transfer printing system and one-directional ink ribbon feeding at a constant speed. The image quality problems which were found in a preliminary experiment have been solved by using a newly developed ribbon and controlling the drive current pulse.
