TO RELATED APPLICATIONS This application No. 2007-154946 based on a prior Japanese Patent Application No. 2007-061375 March 12, 2007 filed June 12, 2007 and filed No. 2007-155199 June 12, 2007 submission, and requires them priority in this incorporated by reference in the text of these patent applications. 技术领域本发明的一个或多个方面涉及即时印字带。 One or more aspects of the present invention relates to instant printing with. 背景技术通常,印字是通过将形成在预制的转印纸(包括转印材料)上的诸如字符和图形符号之类的转印图像压印在任意转印本体的接受面上、然后剥去转印纸以转印图像来实施的。 Background Art In general, printing an image by forming a transfer nip such as characters and graphic symbols or the like in the pre-transfer paper (transfer material comprises a) on any surface of the transfer receiving body, and then turn stripped printing paper to transfer the image to be implemented. 可进行这种简单印字操作的转印纸也被称为即时印字纸。 This can be a simple operation of the transfer paper printing is also known as instant printing paper. 传统上已经提出了采用这种转印纸的各种技术。 Traditionally it has been proposed various techniques using this transfer paper. 除此之外,还知道以下技术,其中,用于产生干的转印材料的墨带用在热敏型打印机、打字机、文字处理机和类似设备中,且能够甚至在具有低润湿性和强脱落性的表面上转印和打印。 In addition, it is known the following technique, which is used to produce dry ink transfer material belt use in thermal printers, typewriters, word processors and similar devices, and can even have low wettability and the strong fall of the surface of the transfer and printing. 采用这种墨带,通过热转印至转印本体(转印纸)而获得的转印图像可通过对其施加压力来有效地再转印至作为转印目标的第二转印本体。 With this ink ribbon, by thermal transfer image onto the transfer body (transfer paper) can be obtained by applying pressure to its effective re-transfer to the second transfer as a transfer target body. 使用被加热时显示出自粘合性的热封标签的技术包括:使用带状热封标签,该带状热封标签具有打印面和粘合面,该粘合面在打印面的相反侧且在其上固定有粘合剂。 Display by heat sealing technology adhesive labels include the use of heated: Use ribbon heat sealing label, the label has printed surface heat sealing strip and the adhesive surface, the adhesive surface on the opposite side of the print side and at Its fixed with an adhesive. 根据这些技术,在使用喷墨型打印方法在打印表面上实施打印之后,热封标签的粘合剂熔化成粘性状态,且打印在热封标签上的墨同时干掉。 According to these techniques, in the use of ink-jet type printing method on the printing surface printing is, melted into a viscous state heat seal adhesive labels and printed in ink on heat-sealed at the same time get rid of the label. 根据上述的背景技术,任何使用者可使用诸如热转印打印机之类的现有装置、 以及上述用于产生干的转印材料的墨带来产生他们选择的所想要的带或纸,以用于即时印字,因此可有较高的自由度。 According to the background art, any user can use existing devices such as thermal transfer printers and the like, as well as the above-mentioned ink used to produce dry transfer material they choose to bring produce desired tape or paper, in order to for instant printing, so we can have a high degree of freedom. 然而,采用这种用于即时印字的带/纸,形成在墨带的墨层上的图像转印至第一转印本体(转印纸),然后,通过使用转印工具来对图像施加压力,而包括着色剂、粘结剂和粘合剂的墨层的图像简单地转印至目标第二转印本体。 However, with this band for instant printing / paper, forming the image transfer the ink on the ribbon to the first transfer body (transfer paper), then, to put pressure on the image by using a transfer tool , while the image ink layer comprises a coloring agent, a binder, and the binder is simply transferred to the second transfer target body. 这里,尽管墨层包含粘合剂,但是它基本上没有粘合剂层,这就意味着它的附着力较弱。 Here, although the ink layer contains a binder, but it is substantially free of the adhesive layer, which means that its adhesion is weak. 当使用者通过使用转印工具或类似装置将压力施加至该图像来转印第一转印本体(转印纸)中的墨层图像时,压力的施加取决于各个使用者而有所不同。 When a user by using a transfer tool or similar means applying pressure to transfer the image to the first transfer body (transfer paper) in the ink image, the pressure is applied varies depending on the individual user. 因此,取决于使用者,第一转印本体(转印纸)中的墨层图像不总是被完全转印,这导致转印具有所谓的转印斑,在该转印斑处局部地发生微小的遗漏。 Thus, depending on the user, the first transfer body (transfer paper) in the ink image is not always completely transferred, which leads to a so-called transfer of the transfer spots occur locally in the transfer spots Department minor omission. 还有,因为即时同一个使用者也不能总是将相同的压力施加至第一转印本体(转印纸)中的墨层的图像,所以问题就产生了:无法总是实现没有转印斑的转印。 Also, since the same instant a user can not always be the same pressure is applied to the first transfer body (transfer paper) ink of the image, so the question arises: Can not always realize there is no transfer spot transfer. 还有,上述热封标签的技术并不包括产生用于即时印字的带或纸的设想。 Incidentally, the heat-sealing label technology does not include generating contemplated for immediate printing or paper tape. 这里,假如使用者不能在转印印字带之前识别待打印在印字带上的内容,则可能会意料不到地错误地转印印字带。 Here, if the user does not recognize the tape before the transfer printing to be printed on the printing tape contents might be incorrectly unexpected transfer printing belt. 还有,假如待打印的内容打印在剥离纸或类似物上,则需要将待打印的内容打印在剥离纸上的新过程。 Also, if the content to be printed is printed on the release paper or the like, you will need to print the contents to be printed in the new process of release paper. 还有,尽管使用者能够识别待打印在印字带上的内容,但是假如使用者不能在转印印字带之前识别待打印在印字带上的颜色,则可能会错误地转印印字带。 Also, although the user can recognize to be printed on the printing tape contents, but if the user does not recognize the tape before the transfer printing tape to be printed in color printing, you might mistake the transfer printing zone. 还有,当在具有粘合剂层的印字纸上进行打印操作时,粘合剂会超出纸端且粘合剂会转移(粘附)到热能头或压纸辊上。 Also, when printing on paper with an adhesive layer for printing, adhesive would exceed the paper side and the adhesive will be transferred (adhered) to the thermal head or platen roller. 此外,当使用墨带来进行打印操作时, 墨带的墨会粘附到热能头或压纸辊。 In addition, when using the ink ribbon for printing, ink ribbon will adhere to the thermal head or platen roller. 发明内容本发明的一个或多个方面是考虑到以上情况而作出的,且有一目的是通过提供一种即时印字带来克服以上问题,该即时印字带具有一带子,该带子通过顺序堆叠基底层、墨层和一旦被加热时显示出自粘合性的粘合剂层来形成,其中,在转印时专用的粘合剂层暴露于其表面上。 One or more aspects of the present invention is made in view of the above circumstances, and has an object to provide an instant print by bringing overcome the above problems, the instant printing belt having a strap, the strap underlayer by sequentially stacking , once the display is heated ink and adhesiveness by forming an adhesive layer, wherein, when the transfer of the adhesive layer exposed dedicated surface thereon. 加热该带子以在墨层上形成图像,在粘合剂层变得有粘性之后,将该带子粘贴到目标转印本体。 Heating the strap to form an image on the ink layer, the adhesive layer becomes sticky after the transfer tape pasted to the target body. 粘合剂层在被加热时显示出的这种自粘合性使得任何使用者能够在任何时刻实施没有转印斑的转印。 The pressure-sensitive adhesive layer exhibits when heated such that this self-adhesive embodiment without any user to transfer the transfer spot at any time. 还有,本发明的一个或多个方面有一目的是提供即时印字带,其中使用者能够在转印印字带之前识别待打印在印字带上的内容和/或颜色。 Also, one or more aspects of the invention have an object to provide instant printing zone, where the user can identify before the transfer printing zone to be printed on the printing tape contents and / or color. 还有,本发明的一个或多个方面有一目的是提供一种即时印字带,该即时印字带能够防止印字带的粘合剂或墨带的墨粘附到热能头或压纸辊。 Also, one or more aspects of the present invention has an object to provide a tape printing instant, the instant belt can be prevented from printing ink binder or ink ribbon printing tape adhered to the thermal head or a platen roller. 为了实现以上目的,根据本发明的第一方面,提供一种印字带,该印字带包括: 基底层;墨层;粘合剂层,该粘合剂层在被加热时显示出自粘合性;其中所述基底层、所述墨层、以及所述粘合剂层顺序堆叠,当所述印字带选择性地被发热本体加热时,所述墨层的被加热部分粘附到所述粘合剂层的被加热部分,当所述被加热的印字带粘贴到目标转印本体然后去除所述印字带时,所述墨层的被加热部分和所述粘合剂层的被加热部分转印到所述目标转印本体。 To achieve the above object,

band. 因此,可以通过简单地借助发热本体直接加热该印字带,来获得所想要的印字带。 Therefore, it can be directly heated by means of printing belt by simply heating the body to obtain the desired printing belt. 因此,因为不再需要将由不同墨带的墨层形成的图像转印至转印纸、然后实施将图像转印至目标转印本体的第二阶段转印(如同传统上所做的),所以印字带的运用变得简单。 Thus, since the image transferred to the transfer paper is no longer needed by different ink layer formed on the ink ribbon, and then the image is transferred to the implementation of the transfer target body a second phase of transfer (as traditionally done), so printing belt use becomes easier. 还有,因为不再需要第二阶段转印,所以可以提高转印质量。 Also, because they no longer need to transfer the second stage, it is possible to improve the quality of the transfer. 根据本发明的第二方面,还提供一种带盒,其中,安装了如权利要求3所述的巻带。 According to a

selectively heating the ink layer and the adhesive layer 60, instead of a display by adhesive binder adhered to the thermal head 30 danger. 还有,通过使用具有高耐热性的聚酯薄膜或类似薄膜,可改善带子相对于热能头30的滑移,由此减小对于送带脉冲电动机41的负载。 Also, by using a polyester film having a high heat resistance film or the like, can be improved with respect to the thermal head slip tape 30, thereby reducing the load for the pulse motor 41 of the conveyor belt. 使设置在印字带10的表面上的剥离纸61与压纸辊33相接触,从而当热能头30 选择性地加热粘合剂层60由此使其显示出自粘合性时,防止印字带10粘附至设置在打印机1中且具有送带功能的压纸辊33且被压纸辊33钩住。 So that the release sheet 61 provided on the surface 10 in contact with the platen roller 33 in the printing belt, so that when the thermal head 30 are selectively heated whereby the adhesive layer 60 so that it is displayed by adhesion, to prevent the printing tape 10 adheres to the settings in the printer 1 and the platen roller 33 has a conveyor belt function and the platen roller 33 is hooked.接着,图6的左下段示出了从图6的左中段所示的状态开始转动送带脉冲电动机41以进一步沿箭头C方向转动压纸辊33,并且同时沿箭头D方向输送印字带IO的状态。这里,从热能头30按压印字带IO之处开始打印,并且通过选择性地加热印字带10来实施打印到热能头30此时按压印字带10之处b。此时,当通过热能头30透过基底层58选择性地加热印字带10的墨层59和粘合剂层60时,印字带10中的墨层59的被加热部分68就粘附至粘合剂层60的被加热部分69,同时粘合剂层60的被加热部分69开始显示出自粘合性。以上所述的是形成印字带10的过程,该印字带10具有一体的分层结构,包括顺序堆叠的基底层58、墨层59、粘合剂层60和剥离纸61,然而,简单地通过在打印机1中选择性地加热无法转印(除非实施一些动作以这样打印或形成图像)的印字带10,印字带10自身可以转变成能转印至目标转印本体70的印字带10。一直到这里,剥离纸61可防止在粘合剂层60的被加热部分69处显示出自粘合性的印字带10粘附至压纸辊33 并被压纸辊33钩住,如上文所述。接着,图6的右上段示出了完成的印字带10,通过如下操作来获得该完成的印字带:使图6中左中段所示状态的印字带IO经受打印完成后插入空白区的操作, 然后操作带切割杆22,以通过设置在带盒26下游的联接至带切割杆22的切割器71和71来切割印字带10。在完成的印字带10中,通过用剥离纸61覆盖粘合剂层60来防止暴露粘合剂,由此不必立即转印至转印本体以保护带子不被异物之类粘附。还有,可以在转印之前才剥去剥离纸,由此能够长期存储带子。接着,图6的右中段示出了剥离纸61已经从完成的印字带10上剥去且印字带10粘附至目标转印本体70的状态。因为墨层59的被加热部分68只在墨层59和粘合剂层60中所想要的被加热打印部分粘附至粘合剂层60的被加热部分69,同时,粘合剂层60的被加热部分69显示出自粘合性,所以不必像对于传统印字带所做的那样在从背面施加压力时摩擦印字带。剥离纸61在接触粘合剂层60的那侧的表面经过剥离剂的处理,从而能够从显示出的自粘合性的粘合剂层60的被加热部分69顺利地剥去该剥离纸61。尽管剥离纸61粘附成防止其在带子移动时移位, 即使在相对于剥离纸61实施静电处理且粘合剂层60未显示出自粘合性的状态下也是如此,但是可以在打印之后用手顺利地剥去剥离纸。接着,图6的右下段示出了剥去图6的右中段示出状态中的印字带10的状态。在该状态,由于墨层59的被加热部分68只在印字带10选择性地被热能头30加热的部分粘附到粘合剂层60的被加热部分69,并且粘合剂层60显示出自粘合性的被加热部分69只在选择性地被加热的部分粘附至目标转移带70,所以当剥去印字带10时,只有墨层59的被加热部分68和粘合剂层60显示出自粘合性的被加热部分69转印至目标转印本体。因此,将形成在墨带的墨层上的图像转印至第一转印本体(转印纸)、然后实施将图像转印至目标第二转印本体的第二阶段转印(如同传统上所做的)可被省略,可将按原状自身无法转印的印字带IO转变成可以通过由热能头30无需添加任何附加部件选择性地加热来转印的印字带10,由此使转印变得更加容易且提高转印质量。这里,在上述图6的结构中,通过剥离纸61来保护粘合剂层60。在仍然粘贴有隔离纸61的情况下,如图6的右上段所示,甚至在已经实施了打印操作之后仍无法识别打印内容。这里,如图7所示,可以采用一结构,其中热敏色固层73涂敷在基底层58 的表面上。当如上所述涂敷热敏色固层73时,热敏色固层73适于在其被热能头30加热的部分显现颜色,如图7的左下段所示。因为显现颜色的部分与转印部分相同,所以使用者能够通过观察热敏色固层73来识别待打印的内容。可以通过简单地在待打印的印字带上涂敷热敏色固剂来使热敏色固层显现颜色,而无需相对于图6所示的转印过程添加任何新的过程。当在热敏色固层73中显现的颜色设置成与墨层59的颜色相同时,使用者不仅能够识别待打印的内容,而且能够识别待打印的颜色。这里,假如粘合剂溢出印字带10,则溢出的粘合剂可能会粘附到热能头30或压纸辊33。如图8所示,假如基底层58和粘合剂层60具有相同的侧向尺寸,则粘合剂层60可能会溢出。因此,溢出的粘合剂可能会粘附至热能头30或压纸辊33。然后,如图9所示,可以通过使粘合剂层60的侧向尺寸小于基底层58 (即, 印字带IO)的侧向尺寸,来防止粘合剂的溢出。图IO示出了印字带IO和粘合剂层60之间的侧向关系,表示了涂敷粘合剂的范围窄于印字带IO的面积。还有,如图9所示,还可通过使墨层59的侧向尺寸小于印字带10的侧向尺寸, 来防止墨的溢出。图8示出了粘合剂层60和墨层59都具有较小的侧向尺寸的情况。这里,可以仅仅使粘合剂层60的侧向尺寸或仅仅使墨层59的侧向尺寸变得较小。在图9所示的结构中,通过改变待打印介质的结构来防止粘合剂或墨的粘附, 而无需改变热能头30和压纸辊33的结构。这里,如图11所示,可以通过改变热能头30和压纸辊33的结构来防止粘合剂或墨的粘附。也就是说,假如热能头的侧向尺寸和/或压纸辊33的侧向尺寸小于印字带10 的侧向尺寸,则即使墨或粘合剂溢出也可防止溢出的粘合剂粘附到热能头30或压纸辊33。还有,图11示出了热能头30的侧向尺寸和压纸辊33的侧向尺寸都小于印字带10的侧向尺寸的结构,还可釆用以下结构,其中只有热能头的侧向尺寸或只有压纸辊33的侧向尺寸变得较小。还有,如图12所示,可以采用图9和图11的组合结构。在这种情况下,可以防止粘合剂或墨的溢出,并且即使粘合剂或墨溢出也可防止溢出的粘合剂或墨粘附到压纸辊33。如同在上文中详细描述的,根据本实施例的印字带10和打印机1,印字带IO 形成为包括基底层58、墨层59和一旦被加热时显现出自粘合性的粘合剂层60,它们顺序堆叠成一体的分层结构。当通过热能头30来选择性地加热该印字带10以形成图像时,墨层59的其上形成图像的被加热部分68粘附到粘合剂层60的被加热部分69,同时,粘合剂层60的被加热部分69显示出自粘合性,由此将印字带IO 自身转变成能够转印至目标转印本体70的印字带10。结果,因为可以简单地通过由发热本体直接加热印字带IO来获得所想要的印字带,所以不再需要将形成在不同墨带的墨层上的图像转印至转印纸、然后实施将图像转印至目标转印本体的第二阶段转印,由此使得印字带IO的运用更加容易。还有,因为不再需要第二阶段转印,所以可以提高转印质量。因为粘合剂层60在被加热时显示出自粘合性,但在未被加热时的正常状态中不显示出自粘合性,所以在"防止异物粘附到印字带10"、"防止印字带IO意外粘附到各个部位"等方面,使得印字带10的运用更加容易。此外,因为粘合剂层60 只在被加热的部分显示出自粘合性,而在未被加热的部分不显示出自粘合性,所以可以清楚地确定显示出自粘合性的部分的边界,从而使得只有显示出自粘合性的部分转印至目标转印本体70。因为墨层59的被加热部分68和粘合剂层60的被加热部分69只在被加热的所想要的打印部分粘合,同时,粘合剂层60显示出自粘合性,所以可以通过在印字带10粘附到目标转印本体70之后剥去印字带10的简单操作,使墨层59的被加热部分68能容易地转印到目标转印本体70,而无需从基底层58的那侧施加压力并摩擦。结果,任何使用者可以容易地实施印字,而没有任何个体差异。还有,因为粘合剂层和/或墨层的侧向尺寸小于印字带的侧向尺寸,所以可以防止粘合剂和/或墨从印字带溢出。还有,因为热能头和/或压纸辊的侧向尺寸小于印字带的侧向尺寸,所以即使粘合剂和/或墨从印字带溢出,也可防止粘合剂和/或墨粘附到热能头和/或压纸辊。因为印字带10在粘合剂层60那侧设置有剥离纸61,所以可容易地运用印字带10而不会使任何粘合剂暴露于印字带10的表面上,即使粘合剂层60稍稍显示出自粘合性也是如此。因此,当粘合剂层60在选择性地被热能头30加热而显示出自粘合性时,可以防止由于印字带IO粘附到设置在打印机1中且有送带功能的压纸辊3并被压纸辊3钩住而在打印机1中引起的故障。因为不必考虑粘合剂相对于压纸辊33的材料的相容性,所以可以扩展用于压纸辊33的材料的选择范围。此外, 因为粘合剂没有露出,所以不必立即将带子转印到目标转印本体70上以保护带子不粘附异物,可以在转印之前才剥去剥离纸60,由此能够根据需要地存储带子。因为印字带10巻绕成巻状,当印字带10安装在打印机1中时,可以防止印字带10发生折叠、弯曲和擦伤。因此,因为待安装的印字带10巻绕成巻63,所以即使在安装在盒壳52中的情况下也可使安装区域最小化,同时,可以使在盒壳52 中的安装更加容易。因为带盒26在盒壳52中容纳印字带10的巻63,所以可以通过将带盒26安装在打印机1的盒安装部27中的简单操作,将带盒26 (印字带10)设置成可打印状态。因此只有在印字带10的情况下,可以这样做而无需诸如布置印字带10使其相对于打印机1处于可打印状态之类的复杂操作。在提供给使用者之前将印字带10的巻63装在带盒26中,可以防止使用者可能误认带子的正面和背面而将印字带10错误地设置在打印机1中。因为在打印机1的盒安装部27中,带盒26可拆卸地安装在该盒安装部27中且该盒安装部27还包括热能头30和压纸辊33,所以印字带10的打印位置夹在热能头30和压纸辊33之间,同时,印字带10中的基底层58那侧邻抵在热能头30 上,墨层59和粘合剂层60可选择性地被加热,而粘合剂不会粘附到热能头30上。同时,使用具有高耐热性的聚酯薄膜和类似薄膜可以改善带子相对于热能头30的滑移,并且可以有助于减小对于驱动压纸辊33的送带脉冲电动机41的负载。打印机1借助设置在盒安装部27中的热能头30和压纸辊33在印字带10的打印位置夹紧具有分层结构的印字带IO,在该分层结构中,基底层58、墨层59和一旦被加热时显示出自粘合性的粘合剂层60顺序堆叠,该打印机1使热能头30与印字带10的基底层58的那侧相接触,以借助热能头透过基底层58选择性地加热印字带10的墨层59和粘合剂层60,由此将印字带10中的墨层59的被加热部分68 粘附到粘合剂层60的被加热部分69。通过使粘合剂层60的被加热部分69显示出自粘合性,可以将印字带10转变成能够转印至目标转印本体70的印字带10。结果,在打印机1中,就不再需要将形成在不同墨带的墨层上的图像转印至转印纸、 然后将图像转印至目标转印本体的第二阶段转印(如同传统上所做的)。这使得打印机1的运用更加简单,并且使得可以产生具有提高的转印质量的印字带10。因为打印机1中的印字带10的粘合剂层60在选择性地被热能头30加热时显示出自粘合性,而在未被加热时的正常状态中没有自粘合性,所以可以防止异物粘附到粘合剂层并防止粘合剂层意外地粘附到各部位,由此使得印字带的运用更加容易。此外,因为粘合剂层60只在其选择性地被热能头30加热的部分显示出自粘合性,而在未被加热的部分不显示出自粘合性,所以可以产生一印字带10,在该印字带10中,显示出自粘合性的部分的边界被清楚地识别,且只有其显示出自粘合性的部分可以转印至目标转印本体70。因为在打印机1中,墨层59的被加热部分68只在其选择性地被热能头30加热的打印部分处粘附到粘合剂层60的被加热部分69,同时,在印字带10的墨层59和粘合剂层60之间,粘合剂层60显示出粘合性,所以可以产生一印字带IO, 在该印字带10中,可以简单地通过在将印字带传送到目标转印本体70之后去除印字带,来容易地将墨层的被加热部分转印到目标转印本体,而无需从基底层58的那侧施加压力并摩擦。然后,因为打印机1在带盒26的放带部67沿着送带方向的下游设置了切割器71和71以便切割印字带10,打印后的印字带10不必由剪刀或类似物来切割,由此可以减小印字带从沿带子纵向的至少一端的打印位置开始的长度。这可以在转印至目标转印本体70时容易地定位由该打印机1产生的印字带10。热敏色固剂涂敷在接触热能头的表面上,从而当印字带被加热时,热敏色固剂在被加热部分处显现颜色,由此可以在转印印字带之前识别印字带的打印内容。结果,可以防止转印错误的印字带。此外,当在热敏色固剂中显现的颜色设置成与墨层的颜色相同时,不仅可以识别待打印的内容,而且可以识别待打印的墨的颜色, 而无需去除剥离纸。结果,可以防止转印错误的印字带。本发明并不局限于上述的实施例,而可以在不脱离本发明范围的前提下实施成其它具体方式。例如,尽管在一些实施例中,印字带具有包括剥离纸61的结构,但是本发明并不局限于上述实施例,不用去说,本发明还可应用到并不包括剥离纸层的印字带。较佳的是,在这种情况下,将剥离剂层涂敷在压纸辊33的表面上。尽管已经以结构特征和/或方法动作的特定的语言来描述了发明主题,但是应该理解,在所附权利要求书中限定的主题不必局限于上述特定的结构或动作。相反, 上述特定的特征和作用是作为实施权利要求的示例形式来揭示的。
