  • Patent number: 11047797
    Abstract: Lower surface 2c or upper surface 2d of object to be sorted 2 is processed such that arithmetic mean roughness Ra is not less than 0.025 ?m in not less than 50% of lower surface 2c or upper surface 2d, object to be sorted 2 is irradiated with infrared light, and reflected light 4 from lower surface 2c or upper surface 2d of object to be sorted 2 is received, thereby determining a resin type of object to be sorted 2 on the basis of a reflection or absorption spectrum of object to be sorted 2 obtained from reflected light 4.

  • Publication number: 20210152698
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a member having a certain function, a learned model, and an estimation unit. The learned model is obtained by learning of a self-organizing map model having an input layer and an output layer. The estimation unit gives multidimensional input data related to the member to the input layer, and estimates a state of the member on the basis of one of a plurality of nodes of the output layer.

  • Patent number: 10792707
    Abstract: A sorting device includes a transport unit, an identification unit, and a plurality of nozzles. Each of the plurality of nozzles has a valve that adjusts a flow amount of pulse air, a pulse air flow path that is connected to the valve, and a pulse air blowing port that is arranged at a tip end of the pulse air flow path. The pulse air flow path has at least one bent portion. An adjustment flow path is connected to the bent portion of the pulse air flow path. An adjustment member capable of increasing and decreasing a volume of the adjustment flow path is provided in the adjustment flow path.

  • Publication number: 20200310721
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an image forming device, an operation device, and a control device. The image forming device forms an image on a recording sheet. The operation device receives an instruction inputted by a user. The control device sets a cancellable time upon receipt, via the operation device, of a start instruction to cause the image forming device to start image forming, causes the image forming device to start the image forming, in a case where a cancel instruction to cancel the image forming is not received within the cancellable time via the operation device, and cancels the image forming in a case where the cancel instruction is received within the cancellable time, via the operation device. Further, the control device changes the cancellable time, according to a predetermined condition.

  • Patent number: 10708464
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a connecting device to which a charging apparatus is connected, an image forming device, an operating device, and a control device. The control device functions as an operation accepter, a controller, a charging processor, and a notifier. The notifier performs a processing for giving a first notice; the first notice is for asking a user whether or not to donate all of or part of a remaining money which is remaining, posterior to charging for a print job, in an inserted amount of money. After the notifier has performed the processing for giving the first notice, when the operation accepter accepts an instruction of execution of the donation, the charging processor performs a charging processing by subtracting, from the inserted amount of money, a charging amount for the print job and an amount of donation indicated by the instruction of execution of the donation.
