  • Patent number: 10882329
    Abstract: A thermal head X1 according to the present disclosure includes a substrate, a heat generator, an electrode, and a protective layer. The heat generator is positioned on the substrate. The electrode is positioned on the substrate and connected to the heat generator. The protective layer covers the heat generator and part of the electrode. The protective layer contains titanium and nitrogen. The protective layer satisfies P2>P1 where P1 is the peak intensity of X-ray diffraction of the (111) plane, and P2 is the peak intensity of X-ray diffraction of the (200) plane.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 9366529
    Abstract: A texture automatic monitoring system for measuring surface texture of a road surface compacted by a road roller is measured by texture measurement equipment mounted on the road roller. The road surface texture measurement equipment comprises a height measurement instrument disposed on the compaction roller that measures height from the road surface, a moving distance detecting instrument that generates a signal corresponding to the moving distance of the road roller, a data processing unit that calculates the moving distance of the road roller based on the moving distance detecting signal, and calculates one or more road surface property values indicating the road surface texture by using the measured value of the height acquired from the height measurement instrument and the calculated moving distance, and a displaying unit which displays the calculated road surface property value.
