  • Publication number: 20180244098
    Abstract: In an image forming apparatus, an extraction processing portion extracts one or more items of personal information from image data of a card read by an image reading portion. A document data acquiring portion acquires image data of a fixed-form document. A document layout acquiring portion acquires document layout information that indicates one or more composite positions in the image data of the fixed-form document where the one or more items of personal information are to be combined. A composition processing portion generates composite image data by combining the personal information extracted by the extraction processing portion with the image data of the fixed-form document in accordance with the document layout information. A print control portion causes an image forming portion to execute a composite image printing process of printing a composite image represented by the composite image data on a sheet.

  • Patent number: 9696732
    Abstract: A valve device includes a valve seat forming member, a case, a first O-ring, and a second O-ring. The valve seat forming member is fit into a passage defining and forms a valve seat. The case houses an electromagnetic solenoid and is connected to the passage defining member. The first O-ring is interposed between an inner circumferential surface of the passage defining member and an outer circumferential surface of the valve seat forming member. The first O-ring prohibits the fluid from flowing through a space between the passage defining member and the valve seat forming member when the main valve body seats on the valve seat. The second O-ring is interposed between the case and the passage defining member. The second O-ring prohibits the fluid from flowing from the passage to an outside of the passage defining member.

  • Patent number: 9665944
    Abstract: In an image processing apparatus, a character recognizing unit identifies a character image in a document image. A font matching unit determines a character code and a font type corresponding to the identified character image. A fore-and-background setting unit sets the document image as a background image and sets a standard character image based on the determined character code and the determined font type. A background image correcting unit (a) deletes a deletion area in the background image, the deletion area taking a same position as the character image or the standard character image, (b) interpolates a differential area between the character image and the standard character image in a specific neighborhood area that contacts with the deletion area on the basis of the background image, and (c) interpolates the deletion area on the basis of the back ground image.

  • Patent number: 9665938
    Abstract: A binarization processing unit 11 performs a binarization process the basis of existence of at least one of lightness and chroma for a candidate image of template matching. A labeling processing unit 12 performs a labeling process for the binarized candidate image and thereby extracts a pixel block in the binarized candidate image. An outline determining unit 14 performs sampling of a position on an outermost periphery of the pixel block, and identifies a range from a centroid position of the pixel block and an angle from a predetermined direction as the position. A correlation determining unit 15 determines a correlation between the ranges and the angles of both the candidate image and the reference image on the basis of the reference outline data, and excludes the candidate image from a candidate of the template matching in accordance with degree of the correlation.
