Carriage drive

The print head carriage is moved by the 4-phase space motor (SP motor in the recommended spare parts) in the

left corner of the frame.

The drive pulley on the space motor shaft is connected to the tension pulley at the right corner of the frame

through the timing belt.

The print head carriage is on the stay shaft parallel to the platen and the front stay (rack rail) fixed on the front of

the frame so that it moves in parallel with the platen axis.

The print head carriage is fixed on a part of the timing belt so that it moves left or right along the platen as the

space motor rotates.
