  • Patent number: 10875734
    Abstract: Provided is a bag making and packaging machine having superior workability in film joining work. A bag making and packaging machine is a bag making and packaging machine that uses film having at least one character or a figure printed on its front side, and is equipped with a film roll support unit, a conveyance unit, a bag making unit, and a light emitting component. The film roll support unit supports a film roll in which the film is wound in a roll. The bag making unit processes the film to make bags. The conveyance unit is positioned between the film roll support unit and the bag making unit. The conveyance unit feeds the film to the bag making unit. The light emitting component illuminates, from the direction of the front side of the film, the film positioned between the film roll support unit and the conveyance unit.

  • Patent number: 10781004
    Abstract: A bag making and packaging machine includes a cutter fixed to a sealing member that cuts a laterally sealed portion of a film using pressure force with which a pair of sealing members sandwiches the film during lateral sealing. The bag making and packaging machine further includes a pair of sealing jaws, a knife, a pressurization mechanism, and a pressurization mechanism control part. The knife fixed to one sealing jaw, fusion-cuts the laterally sealed portion of the film. The pressurization mechanism exerts pressure force on one sealing jaw towards the other sealing jaw so that the pair of sealing jaws sandwiches and laterally seals the film therebetween, and the knife comes into contact with a laterally sealed portion and fusion-cuts the laterally sealed portion. The pressurization mechanism control part causes the pressurization mechanism to cease exerting pressure force based on error information pertaining to the film or the goods.

  • Patent number: 10703207
    Abstract: In an outboard motor, a controller controls an electric motor. An output outputs a predetermined notification information in response to a notification command signal output from the controller. When the controller receives a shut-off signal indicating that a semiconductor fuse is off, the controller outputs the notification command signal and causes the output to output notification information. When the controller receives a recovery operation signal indicating a predetermined operation performed by a user from an operator in a state where the semiconductor fuse has turned off, the controller outputs a recovery command signal to the semiconductor fuse.
