  • Patent number: 11274003
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes: a belt unit including a transfer belt and a first memory that stores a first sheet conveying speed of the transfer belt; a second memory storing a first reference value and a second sheet conveying speed of the fixing unit a controller configured to: control at least one of the belt motor and the fixing motor to bring the speed difference between the sheet conveying speed of the transfer belt and the sheet conveying speed of the fixing unit closer to the first reference value by setting a rotational speed of the fixing motor based on the first reference value and a first speed difference between the first sheet conveying speed read from the first memory and the second sheet conveying speed read from the second memory.

  • Patent number: 4674769
    Abstract: A steering system for a forklift truck having a tiltable steering column which rotatably supports a steering shaft carrying a steering wheel. The tiltable steering column is pivotally supported between its operative position and its rest position, about a pivot axis parallel to an axis of rotation of drive wheels of the truck. The system comprises: a biasing spring for biasing the steering column toward its rest position; an engaging member provided on the steering column; a locking member for locking the steering column in the operative position, the locking member being supported movably between its locking position and its unlocking position, and when placed in the locking position, engaging the engaging member of the steering column in the operative position; and an actuator associated with the locking member to move the locking member to the unlocking position and thereby permit the steering column to be pivoted to the rest position under a biasing action of the biasing spring.

  • Patent number: 4653342
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a shift lever mechanism for a transmission in a vehicle in which the driving mechanism is comprised of a differential case, a transmission case, a clutch housing and an engine which are connected respectively and characterized in that the first shifting fork shaft in the clutch is movably protruded through one wall portion of the transmission case, and connected to one end of a first connecting rod member, a first shift lever being connected to the other end portion of said first connecting rod member. The length of said rod member is greater than the lateral vibrational distance within the vehicle, so that the amount of vibration reaching the shift lever from the transmission is greatly reduced to improve ease of shifting and ensure a positive shift.

  • Patent number: 4359033
    Abstract: The characteristics of a diesel engine exhaust gas recycling system are improved by reducing the percentage of the recycled exhaust gas in the low and high speed ranges of the engine. This is accomplished by the use of a conversion valve which decreases the input negative pressure to the vacuum amplifier which controls the recycling valve.
