  • Patent number: 10293610
    Abstract: A controller controls printing heads to print a page information mark with black ink to perform line flushing. The printing heads each have a plurality of inkjet nozzles for discharging ink being disposed in parallel in a width direction of web paper. Upon printing the mark, when an overlap region is present in which a mark printable region overlaps a line flushing region with ink other than the black ink, the controller performs control to decrease an ink discharge amount per unit area in the overlap region in the mark printable region to be smaller than that in the mark printable region except for the overlap region and the line flushing region. This causes a decreased total ink discharge amount in the overlap region.

  • Patent number: 9987847
    Abstract: An inkjet printing apparatus includes a transport speed detector for detecting transport speed of a printing medium, an inkjet head having a plurality of discharge portions for discharging ink droplets from the discharge portions for printing, and a flushing controller for carrying out discrete flushing from the discharge portions. For an acceleration area of the printing medium where the transport speed detector detects an increase in transport speed before printing, a first discharge rate is set as discharge rate of the ink droplets per unit time for the discharge flushing. For a constant speed area of the printing medium where the transport speed detector detects a substantially constant transport speed during printing, a second discharge rate lower than the first discharge rate is set as discharge rate of the ink droplets per unit time for the discharge flushing.

  • Patent number: 9598074
    Abstract: A vehicle stabilization system 1 comprises a VSA device to have a braking device generate a braking force to reduce rotation of wheels and perform an anti-lock braking control when a vehicle is braked and an AS device to cancel a yawing moment applied to the vehicle. A vehicle control device estimates a friction coefficient (pad ? value of the brake pad) of a friction material for braking the wheels, calculates braking forces for the left and right wheels using the estimated friction coefficient, calculates a yawing moment applied to the vehicle based on a braking force difference between a left wheel braking force to reduce rotation of the left wheels and a right wheel braking force to reduce rotation of the right wheels and determines an operation amount on the AS device.
