1. a printing equipment comprises:

  • printhead;

    The ink ribbon drive mechanism is used for making ink ribbon at printhead be printed between the path that material advances and advance;

    Be used for using the device of printhead to the colour band that is supported in the ink ribbon drive mechanism, wherein printhead comprises;

    arrays of printing elements, each type element selectively be powered with from the part colour band that contacts with this type element with ink release;

    Controller, be used for controlling powering up of type element and advancing of colour band so that implement a series of printing intervals, wherein each printing interval comprises printing stage and non-printing stage, wherein the relative motion between described printing stage printing head and colour band makes printhead through the predetermined length of colour band, and in the non-printing stage, the relative printhead of the colour band predetermined distance of advancing, wherein at continuous printing interval, controller powers up for the different type element group of arrays of printing elements selectively, difference type element group is distributed on the printhead, make the different piece of different type element group contact colour band, described controller advances colour band, make the described colour band preset distance that advances lack than described colour band predetermined length, type element group is powered, between any two intervals of printing the stages that make that same group at type element powers up, the distance that colour band advances is at least the predetermined length of described colour band.
