  • Patent number: 10857775
    Abstract: A laminating apparatus, in which films can be heated sufficiently, has a simple structure and allows films to be loaded easily. The laminating apparatus includes a sheet feed mechanism unit configured to convey a sheet into an apparatus main body, a film supply unit, and a press-bonding mechanism unit configured to perform a thermal press-bonding process while sandwiching the sheet between a pair of films. A sheet feed unit including the sheet feed mechanism unit is appropriately changeable between an open state and a closed state. The film supply unit includes rollers at supply positions where the films sufficiently wind around heating rollers of the press-bonding mechanism unit. The sheet feed unit includes counter rollers configured to abut the rollers in the closed state and separate from the rollers in the open state.

  • Patent number: 8164764
    Abstract: When an instruction to execute an image processing from a user is accepted through an operation panel, a control section temporarily stores image data read from an original or externally received image data in an HDD, and then, outputs processing information related to the image processing based on the accepted execution instruction and the image data stored in the HDD from a communication section to a server apparatus as historical data. When an obtaining completion signal representative of the completion of obtaining of the historical data is obtained from the server apparatus through the communication section, the control section performs the image processing on the image data stored in the HDD according to the accepted execution instruction. Then, the control section erases the image data subjected to the processing from the HDD.

  • Publication number: 20060253536
    Abstract: Among unique addresses that are receiving ends of data, such as e-mail addresses, a partial address that is in common with a plurality of addresses is registered in a storing unit. For example, of an e-mail address containing a user name and a domain, the domain is used as the partial address. Thus, a data transmitting apparatus, such as an Internet facsimile apparatus, restricts data transmission for image data and the like only to addresses containing the partial address registered in the storing unit. In other words, data is transmitted only to addresses that have the same domain.
