  • Publication number: 20220234368
    Abstract: A recording system includes a transportation unit that transports a paper sheet, an ejection unit that ejects an ink, a heating unit that heats the paper sheet, a discharge unit to which the paper sheet is discharged, and a control unit. The control unit specifies an amount of ejection of the ink from the ejection unit. The control unit also controls an operation of the heating unit such that an undried region where the ink on the paper sheet is not dried and a dried region where the ink on the paper sheet is dried are formed on the paper sheet. Then, the control unit controls a transporting operation by the transportation unit such that the paper sheet on which the dried region and the undried region are formed is discharged to the discharge unit.

  • Patent number: 11333521
    Abstract: A head-up display (HUD) including a direction-information generator, a shift device, and a display system. The direction-information generator generates direction information to be superimposed on a road surface ahead of a vehicle on which the HUD is mounted. The direction information represents a direction of travel to be followed by the vehicle. The shift device shifts at least some of the direction-change information into the display area when the direction information includes direction-change information to represent a change in the direction of travel and the direction-change information falls outside a display area. The display system displays the direction information within the display area as a virtual image.

  • Patent number: 11249423
    Abstract: Provided is an image forming apparatus including an image carrier, a transfer unit, a driver, a hardware processor, an adjustment mechanism, and a speed detector. The hardware processor sets a command value. The hardware processor performs a constant-torque control based on a constant-speed drive torque detected in a constant-speed control. In the constant-torque control, the hardware processor performs a feedback control to set a reference value to an average speed of the driver during passage of a first sheet and calculate a difference from an average speed during passage of a subsequent sheet so as to derive the command value. The hardware processor determines whether a load torque increase, its factor, and/or its influence exceeds a threshold, and forcibly sets the reference value to a speed detected while a pressure between the transfer unit and the image carrier is reduced by the adjustment mechanism from the pressure during image transfer.

    Abstract: A brazing material is interposed between an aluminum-based material and an iron-based material plated with Ni. The brazing material has a structure in which an Al—Si—Ni based alloy layer and an Al layer are bonded via a flux layer. A structure for brazing is formed such that the Al—Si—Ni based alloy layer is located on the aluminum-based material side and the Al layer is located on the iron-based material side. The structure is heated in a furnace and is thereafter cooled, thereby obtaining a brazed joint body in which the Ni plating that is a barrier layer remains and an Al—Ni layer is formed.
