  • Patent number: 11383540
    Abstract: A printing unit includes a plurality of ink jet parts and an X-axis linear motion mechanism that moves each of the plurality of ink jet parts in the same main scanning direction. The X-axis linear motion mechanism moves the ink jet part involved in printing the workpiece among the plurality of ink jet parts so as to face the surface of the workpiece and moves the remaining ink jet part on the one X-axis linear motion mechanism so as to retreat from the surface of the workpiece. As a result, a printing apparatus that is capable of printing accurately onto the workpiece having a three-dimensional curved surface is provided.

  • Patent number: 10151505
    Abstract: A mode selection unit selects a continuous operation mode when a dehumidifying operation is started. When an indoor temperature is less than or equal to a set first temperature threshold and indoor humidity is greater than a set humidity threshold in the continuous operation mode, the mode selection unit selects an intermittent operation mode. When the indoor temperature is less than or equal to a set second temperature threshold that is greater than the first temperature threshold and the indoor humidity is less than or equal to the set humidity threshold in the intermittent operation mode, the mode selection unit selects an operation stop mode.

  • Publication number: 20090052713
    Abstract: A wireless microphone transmitter 1 and a wireless microphone receiver 12 can mutually communicate with each other. The wireless microphone receiver 12 transmits level meter data of sound data received by the wireless microphone receiver 12 to the wireless microphone transmitter 1. The wireless microphone transmitter 1 simultaneously displays a transmitter side sound level and a receiver side sound level. The user of the wireless microphone transmitter 1 sees the display of a wireless microphone on hand and can visually monitor the sound of transmission and reception. Instead of the sound level, an RF level may be monitored.
