Abstract (en)

The device (10) has a print head comprising a nozzle or ink outlet opening coupled to an ink supply of an inkjet head. The nozzle of the print head is in fluid connection directly with an ink storage element arranged in an interior of an ink cartridge. A ventilation opening (7) formed in an ink container (11) is openable during docking of the ink cartridge. The ink container comprises an ink outlet for a capillary element (4), where an outlet is openable during docking of the ink cartridge. An exhaust channel (20) is arranged at the capillary element.

Abstract (de)

Vorrichtung (10) zur Wiederbefüllung einer Tintenpatrone (1) für einen Tintenstrahldrucker z.B. mit einem Düsen umfassenden Druckkopf (16), wobei die Düsen des Druckkopfes (16) unmittelbar mit einem innerhalb der Tintenpatrone (1) angeordneten Tintenspeicherelement in Fluidverbindung stehen. Die Vorrichtung weist einen mit Tinte gefüllten Behälter (11) auf, mit einer Belüftungsöffnung (7) einerseits und einer weiteren Öffnung (18) andererseits, durch die sich ein mit der Tinte (19) fluidverbindbares Kapillarelement (4) hindurcherstreckt, an das die Tintenpatrone (1) bzw. deren Tintenspeicherelement unter Herstellung einer kapillaren Fluidverbindung andockbar ist. Die im Tintenbehälter (11) ausgebildete Belüftungsöffnung (7) ist erst beim Andocken der Tintenpatrone (1) offenbar. Der Tintenbehälter (11) weist auch noch einen, ggf. ebenfalls erst beim Andocken der Tintenpatrone (1) öffenbaren Tintenauslaß (17) zum Kapillarelement (4) auf.
