  • Publication number: 20190159571
    Abstract: An order reception apparatus according to an embodiment of the disclosure includes a receiving section and a transmitting section. The receiving section receives order information including identification information of a nail tip or a nail sticker, and user information. The transmitting section transmits the identification information and the user information received by the receiving section to a first external apparatus. Here, the first external apparatus corrects nail tip or nail slicker shape data corresponding to the identification information on the basis of measurement data of a nail corresponding to the user information, to thereby generate original nail tip or original nail sticker shape data.

  • Publication number: 20190150586
    Abstract: A nail production system according to an embodiment of the disclosure includes a first correction section and a first conversion section. The first correction section corrects shape data of an existing nail tip or an existing nail sticker on the basis of measurement data of a nail, to thereby generate shape data of an original nail tip or an original nail sticker. The first conversion section converts the shape data of the original nail tip or the original nail sticker that is generated by the first correction section into print data.

  • Patent number: 9787205
    Abstract: A power source device includes a transformer, a first switching element and a second switching element, a resonance capacitor, and a switch. One end of the second switching element is connected with one end portion of a primary winding. The other end of the second switching element is connected with one end portion of the resonance capacitor. The primary winding and the resonance capacitor are resonated with each other by alternately operating the first and second switching elements to supply electric power to a load connected with a secondary winding of the transformer. The primary winding includes a first primary winding and a second primary winding. Depending on the load, the switch connects or disconnects between the first primary winding and the resonance capacitor, or connects or disconnects between the second primary winding and said resonance capacitor.

  • Patent number: 9106148
    Abstract: The power supply apparatus includes a transformer having primary and secondary sides, a switching element, a feedback unit, a conversion unit that converts a current flowing in a primary winding of the transformer into a voltage, a control unit that controls operation of the switching element, a voltage switching unit that increases the voltage output from the conversion unit and feeds the increased voltage to the control unit when a continuous oscillation state is transited to an intermittent oscillation state. The voltage switching unit switches the voltage of the power supply that is input into the control unit to be higher when the continuous oscillation state is transited to the intermittent oscillation state.
