  • Patent number: 10649703
    Abstract: A printing control apparatus suppresses information leaking due to a print job being printed when the user is not at the printer. A printing control apparatus that connects to a terminal and a printer has: a communicator configured to receive from the terminal a specified-printer job, which is a print job for which the printer is designated as a print destination; and a controller. If the specified-printer job is not confidential, the controller sends print data based on the specified-printer job to a specified printer, which is the printer designated as the print destination in the specified-printer job. If the specified-printer job is confidential, the controller receives authentication information input to the printer from the printer and executes an authentication process based on the authentication information, and sends the print data to an authenticated printer according to a result of the authentication process.

  • Patent number: 9476337
    Abstract: Two sets of assemblies are arranged such that a diesel particulate filter device of the assembly, a selective catalytic reduction device of the assembly, a selective catalytic reduction device of the assembly, and a diesel particulate filter device of the assembly are located next to each other in this order. Exhaust tubes are provided to extend upward from gas outlets of the selective catalytic reduction device of the assembly and the selective catalytic reduction device of the assembly. The two exhaust tubes are located on a virtual plane orthogonal to longitudinal directions of the selective catalytic reduction devices of the assemblies. Thereby, an air intake position for an engine can be easily set to a position from which exhaust gas from the engine is less likely to be taken in, in a configuration provided with two sets of assemblies.
