  • Publication number: 20210016389
    Abstract: An adjustment assistance device is attached to a galvanometer scanner at a laser output side of the galvanometer scanner and used to adjust a tool coordinate system of the galvanometer scanner. The adjustment assistance device includes a light-receiving member having a light-receiving surface, which is at least one flat surface; and a connecting member that connects the light-receiving member to the galvanometer scanner and that enables the light-receiving surface to face a laser output port of the galvanometer scanner with a predetermined distance therebetween. The light-receiving member includes a light-receiving mark portion on the light-receiving surface, the light-receiving mark portion being a mark used to quantify a relative positional difference between a reference light-receiving position for light output from the laser output port and an actual light-receiving position at which the light output from the laser output port is received.

  • Patent number: 10771657
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus performs image processing to print a color materials of a first color and a second color. When a sum of a first gradation data for the first color and a second gradation data for the second color is equal to or smaller than the maximum value of thresholds of a first threshold matrix, a generation unit generates a second quantization data for the second color based on a result of comparing the second gradation data with a second threshold. When the sum is greater than the maximum value, the generation unit generates third gradation data by subtracting the maximum value from the sum and generates the second quantization data based on a result of comparing the third gradation data with the first threshold or a result of comparing a difference between the second gradation data and the third gradation data with the second threshold.

  • Publication number: 20200172359
    Abstract: A contact-separation mechanism includes a cam to rotate to move a contact-separation member to and from a counterpart member, a detection target to rotate together with the cam, and a detector to detect presence or absence of the detection target in a detection area of the detector, and circuitry. The cam has a reference range. The circuitry issues a rotation stop instruction of the cam after a target time elapses from passing of the reference range of the detection target through the detection area, and sets the target time based on a duration of an immediately preceding passing of the reference range through the detection area.
