  • Patent number: 10609237
    Abstract: An image forming system having a printing apparatus including a feeder to be pulled out and an image forming unit. The printing apparatus further includes a reception unit to receive a user instruction for setting sheet information on a sheet in association with the feeder. Based on set sheet information, the image forming unit forms an image on a sheet fed from the feeder. The image forming system further includes a display unit to display feeder information and a detection unit to detect that the feeder in a pulled-out state is closed. The display unit displays the feeder information subjected to the user instruction in a first display form and, based on a detection by the detection unit, changes the display by the display unit including the first display form having the feeder information to a display including a second display form different from the first display form.

  • Publication number: 20200004472
    Abstract: A sheet management system, in which a print control apparatus and an image forming apparatus are configured to communicate with each other, includes a selection unit, an adjustment unit, a confirmation unit, and a setting unit. The selection unit selects a sheet feeding deck. The adjustment unit adjusts sheet information including setting values for performing print processing on a sheet to be used for printing. The confirmation unit confirms. In a case where there is not a match between selected sheet information set for the sheet feeding deck and the sheet information to be adjusted, the confirmation unit confirms whether the sheet information to be adjusted by the adjustment unit is to be set for the selected sheet feeding deck. The setting unit sets the sheet information adjusted by the adjustment unit for the image forming apparatus in accordance with a result of confirmation by the confirmation unit.

  • Publication number: 20190125473
    Abstract: To provide a container for a medical device, which enables easy removal of wrapping, thereby significantly reducing the labor for unpacking at the delivery destination such as a pharmaceutical company or a medical institution. Furthermore, the provided container for the medical device enables easy removal of wrapping even during an automated process in a filling machine for medical solutions, for example. In this container for a medical device, a holder holding at least one medical device is placed inside a container body having an opening at the top, and the opening is sealed with a gas-impermeable film. When sterilizing the exterior of the container using a sterilization gas, the sterilization gas does not permeate into the container due to the gas-impermeable film, so the medical device and the holder thereof placed inside the container are never exposed to the gas.
