Flexural wave propagation may be used as a means of absorbing impact energy to prevent excessive rebound or to shorten the cycle time of high-speed printing devices. For optimal damping action, however, the dynamic analysis of beams used in the mechanism is necessary; this paper presents such an analysis. It also presents an application of a damper ring design that is used to prevent so-called “shadow printing” by suppressing the rebound of the type elements in a disk printer.
