Hammer driver controller for impact printers

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4062285.

To obtain a substantially uniform print density while printing at high speed with a hammer-type impact printer, the hammer is electromagnetically driven in response to an energizing current which decays with a predetermined time constant from a high initial level toward a set point level which is automatically adjusted for different classes of characters so that the impact energy imparted to the hammer is regulated as a function of the character being printed. To adaptively absorb the shock forces generated by the rebounding hammer, the energizing current for the electromagnetic driver is reduced to a predetermined fraction of the set point level.
