  • Patent number: 10350893
    Abstract: An inkjet printing apparatus includes a head, a platen, a platen absorbent that temporarily stores ink ejected from the head, a waste ink storage container that stores the ink discharged from the platen absorbent, and an estimation unit that, in a case where the platen is divided into a plurality of regions in a direction intersecting a conveyance direction of the printing medium, estimates an amount of ink stored in the waste ink storage container based on a position of a region to which the ink is ejected by the head and an amount of ink ejected to the region.

  • Publication number: 20190176467
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to quickly correct a temperature sensor for an ejection head by, both efficiently and in a brief time, estimating a detected temperature of the temperature sensor for the ejection head in a case where the temperature of the ejection head of liquid becomes sufficiently close to an environment temperature. The temperature of a print head 1 is detected by a diode sensor 17 and the environment temperature is detected by a thermistor 10. Based on a change in the detected temperature of the diode sensor 17 at the time of filling of ink for the print head 1, the detected temperature of the diode sensor 17 in a case where the temperature of the print head 1 becomes close to the environment temperature is estimated as an estimated detected temperature. Based on a difference between the estimated detected temperature and the environment temperature, a correction value of the detected temperature of the diode sensor 17 is set.

  • Patent number: 10143623
    Abstract: According to the present invention, a packing member (20) is disposed between a mouth portion (2b) of a container body (2) and a lid base portion (5). A crushing protrusion (20b) which protrudes downward and is crushed to an upper end opening edge of the container body (2) is formed on a lower surface of the packing member (20). An overhang recess (20c) which is at least partially located just above the crushing protrusion (20b) is formed on an upper surface of the packing member (20). After the lid base portion (5), the movable lid portion (6) and the syringe tube (8) are detached from the container body (2), when mounting again, until a crushing protrusion (20b) is crushed, the packing member (20) forms a communication gap (30) between the mouth portion (2b) of the container body (2) and the packing member (20).
