Abstract: In an image-forming device, a drum cartridge and a developing cartridge are detachably attached to a frame. A controller is configured to perform: a drum replacement necessity determination process; and a mode switch process. The drum replacement necessity determination process determines, based on life information for the drum cartridge, whether replacement of the drum cartridge is necessary. The mode switch process switches a mode of a printing process between a normal printing mode and an extended printing mode. The normal printing mode allows the image-forming device to perform the printing process when the replacement of the drum cartridge is determined to be unnecessary. The extended printing mode allows the image-forming device to perform the printing process on a condition that the developing cartridge attached to the frame is not replaced with another developing cartridge in a state where the replacement of the developing cartridge is necessary.
Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an accommodating part configured to accommodate a sheet-like medium wound in a roll shape, an apparatus main body provided with a conveyer and an image forming engine, an electrically driven cutter, a cover configured to take a closed position for forming an exposable portion of a conveying path downstream in the conveying direction of the cutter and an open position to expose the exposable portion of the conveying path to the outside, a detector configured to detect a conveyance jam of the medium at a position downstream in the conveying direction of the exposable portion of the conveying path, a notifier configured to make notification to a user, and a controller configured to cause the notifier to prompt the user to cut off the medium at an arbitrary position in the exposable portion of the conveying path when the detector detects the conveyance jam.
Abstract: A driving tool includes: a plunger movable in a first direction along a direction in which a fastener is launched; an urging member that is extendable and contractible in the first direction and serves as a drive source of the plunger; and guide rails configured to guide movement of the plunger in the first direction. The guide rails extend along the first direction of the urging member and are disposed on both sides sandwiching the urging member, and the guide rails are arranged such that a virtual line connecting the guide rails on the both sides of the urging member is deviated from a central axis of the urging member in a plan view of the urging member as viewed from the first direction.
