  • Publication number: 20190275806
    Abstract: An optical print head that performs optical writing to a photoreceptor includes: a light transmissive substrate; a light emitting unit including light emitting element groups, each of which includes two or more light emitting elements disposed on a first main surface of the substrate; a lens array including lenses that correspond one-to-one to the light emitting element groups; light detection units disposed above the second main surface of the substrate in one-to-one correspondence to the light emitting element groups and that detects the light from each of the light emitting elements; and correction unit that corrects light amounts of the light emitting elements of the light emitting element group based on detection of the light detection units.

  • Patent number: 10389904
    Abstract: An image forming device includes: a photoreceptor; a longitudinal light emitting member constituted from light emitting element rows that are arranged in a lateral direction and are each constituted from light emitting elements arranged in a longitudinal direction; an optical member that is longitudinal and is disposed to condense light emitted from the light emitting elements onto the photoreceptor; and a hardware processor that: selects and causes one or more light emitting elements for each light emitting element row to emit light; acquires an exposure amount for each light emitting element row; calculates a distribution of the exposure amounts acquired for the light emitting element rows, and calculates a position in the lateral direction corresponding to a predetermined exposure amount in the distribution; and judges whether a difference between the calculated position and a reference position in the lateral direction at a reference time is less than a threshold value.

  • Patent number: 10384464
    Abstract: An optical print head including a light emitting member, an optical member, a detection unit, and a correction unit. The light emitting member is elongated in a longitudinal direction with light emitting elements arranged along the longitudinal direction. The optical member is elongated in the longitudinal direction with optical elements arranged along the longitudinal direction, the optical elements collecting light emitted by the light emitting elements. The detection unit detects an index value of linear expansion difference in the longitudinal direction of the light emitting member and the optical member. The correction unit uses the index value to correct an emitted light amount for each of the light emitting elements in order to offset differences in light collection efficiency caused by the linear expansion difference.

  • Publication number: 20190162339
    Abstract: A metal seal can be crushed evenly without forming wrinkles and scratches due to sliding against first and second flat surfaces. The seal comprises a first/second end surface arranged to face the first/second flat surface, respectively. The first end surface comprises a first convex part having a curved or flat surface that contacts the first flat surface, and a first projection that is formed shifted in a radial direction from the first convex part and has a ridge line that contacts the first flat surface. Prior to deformation, when the second end surface contacts the second flat surface and the first flat surface is separated from the first end surface, a point where a vertical distance between the first convex part and the second flat surface is the greatest and the ridge line are located on the same surface that is parallel to the first flat surface.

  • Publication number: 20190162305
    Abstract: A metal seal is annular, provided sandwiched between first and second flat surfaces. The seal includes a first/second end surface opposite to the first/second flat surface, respectively. The first end surface includes paired first protrusions formed displaced in a radial direction of the metal seal and have dihedral angles contacting the first flat surface, and the second end surface includes a second protrusion formed inward of one first protrusion and outward of the other first protrusion in the radial direction, and has a dihedral angle contacting the second flat surface, and paired third protrusions that are respectively formed inward and outward of the second protrusion and whose highest points to which perpendicular distances from a reference plane including the dihedral angles of the paired first protrusions are shorter than a perpendicular distance from the reference plane to the dihedral angle of the second protrusion.
