  • Patent number: 11912456
    Abstract: A bagmaking and packaging device includes a transverse sealing unit, a first tube member, and a gas flow path member. The first tube member is disposed above the transverse sealing unit and extends in an up and down direction. The first tube member allows a packaging material to become wrapped around it to thereby form the packaging material into a tubular shape. At least part of the gas flow path member is disposed inside the first tube member. The gas flow path member delivers nitrogen into the packaging material formed into the tubular shape. The first tube member includes a cutout portion that extends in the up and down direction. The cutout portion is formed so that the nitrogen can move between a space between the packaging material formed into the tubular shape and the first tube member and the inside space of the first tube member.

  • Publication number: 20240017949
    Abstract: A film roll replacement device supplies a film roll to a bag making and packaging machine, which has a film-roll-supporting part to support the film roll and which manufactures bags containing articles using the film. The film roll replacement device includes a holding section, the driving unit, and a controller. The holding section is located adjacent to the bag making and packaging machine, and the holding section holds the film roll supplied to the bag making and packaging machine. The driving unit moves the holding section. The controller controls an action of the driving unit to move the holding section to move in a first direction toward the supporting part of the bag making and packaging machine and to transfer the film roll held by the holding section to the supporting part.

  • Publication number: 20240017948
    Abstract: A film roll replacement device supplies a film roll to a bag making and packaging machine. The film roll replacement device includes a holding section, a driving unit, and a controller. The holding section is at least temporarily located adjacent to a supporting shaft to support the film roll in the bag making and packaging machine, and the holding section holds a first film roll supplied to the bag making and packaging machine. The driving unit moves the holding section in an up-down direction. The controller controls an action of the driving unit to move the holding section to a position where a height position of a center of the first film roll held by the holding section is aligned with the height of a center of the supporting shaft of the bag making and packaging machine.

  • Publication number: 20230418181
    Abstract: A toner container includes a container body, an opening, a cover, a toner discharge port, a shutter, a cylindrical structure, protrusions, and an identifier. The shutter is attached to the cover and includes a main shutter covering the toner discharge port. The main shutter moves between a closed position to close the toner discharge port and an open position to open the toner discharge port. The protrusions are on both sides of the cover and protrude in a direction orthogonal to a toner container mounting direction. The identifier is on the cover to indicate a toner color. The cylindrical structure's leading end is downstream of leading ends of the protrusions in the mounting direction. The main shutter's leading end is downstream of the protrusions' leading ends in the mounting direction when the main shutter is in the closed position. The protrusions are downstream of the identifier in the mounting direction.

  • Publication number: 20230250397
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a culture medium for producing extracellular vesicles, a culture medium kit, an additive, and a method for producing extracellular vesicles, whereby the production of extracellular vesicles is promoted. The present invention is to provide a culture medium for producing extracellular vesicles. The culture medium for producing extracellular vesicles contains a basal medium for culturing animal cells, and at least one component selected from L-glutamine or a salt thereof, transferrin, selenious acid or a salt thereof, insulin, insulin-like growth factors, a serotonin compound, and transforming growth factor ?. Furthermore, in a case of containing L-glutamine or a salt thereof, the culture medium for producing extracellular vesicles contains L-glutamine or a salt thereof with a concentration of 5 mM or more in the culture medium for producing extracellular vesicles.

  • Patent number: 11649083
    Abstract: A bag-making and packaging apparatus includes a bag-making and packaging unit, a film feeding unit, a splicing device, and a control unit. The control unit allows a bag-making operation to continue by utilizing an auto-feeding function that feeds to the bag-making and packaging unit a film F spliced by the splicing device to take the place of a film F currently being fed to the bag-making and packaging unit. When the control unit judges that at least one of the film feeding unit and the splicing device is malfunctioning in a case where the control unit is utilizing the auto-feeding function, the control unit stops the auto-feeding function and executes a non-auto-feeding mode. The non-auto-feeding mode allows the bag-making operation to be continued by the bag-making and packaging unit and a film roll holding unit that is operable among plural film roll holding units.

  • Publication number: 20220091598
    Abstract: The present invention reduces the possibility that poor-quality products are distributed to market. The bag-making and packaging apparatus is a production processing device used in quality management of foodstuffs. The bag-making and packaging apparatus includes a control part, a storage part, and an acquisition part. The control part changes an action performed by the individual parts. The storage part stores an inspection item pertaining to quality management of the foodstuffs. The acquisition part acquires an inspection result pertaining to the inspection item. The control part determines at least one of the following: whether or not the inspection result has been inputted to the acquisition part, whether the input of the inspection results inputted to the acquisition part is normal or not, and whether the inspection result acquired by the acquisition part is good or not. The control part changes the action based on the result of the determination.
