Title: Transfer printing station with adjustable-width paper conveyor means

Abstract: A transfer printing station is provided which has two pairs of tractor drives movably arranged side-by-side on two drive shafts. During operation with only a single paper web, the unused tractor drives can be moved to a lateral parking position. The two pairs of tractor drives can be easily moved to match two different webs of paper of different widths. The structure enables a user to adapt the paper conveyor of a transfer printing station to operate with only a single paper web or two parallel webs.
