  • Patent number: 11951735
    Abstract: A printing device includes: a printing unit printing on a recording paper; a feeder unit having a roller that rotates about a shaft and feeds the recording paper and a motor that rotates the shaft; a detection unit detecting the rotation of the shaft; and a control unit controlling the printing unit. The control unit calculates an electrifying time during which the printing unit is electrified and a non-electrifying time during which the printing unit is not electrified following the electrifying time, based on a detection signal from the detection unit. When the calculated non-electrifying time is less than a predetermined time, the control unit corrects the non-electrifying time in such a way that the non-electrifying time becomes equal to or longer than the predetermined time, and causes the printing unit to print.

  • Publication number: 20240047140
    Abstract: A disclosed electrolytic capacitor includes a capacitor element. The capacitor element includes an anode body, a dielectric layer formed on a surface of the anode body, a cathode body, and an electrolyte layer and a separator that are disposed between the dielectric layer and the cathode body. The electrolyte layer includes a non-aqueous solvent and conductive particles. A ratio D/T of an average maximum diameter D of the conductive particles to an average thickness T of the separator is in a range of 0.01 to 0.9.

  • Patent number: 11845267
    Abstract: A printing device includes: a printing unit printing on a recording paper; a feeder unit that has a roller rotating in a first direction about a shaft and feeding the recording paper, and a motor rotating the shaft; a detection unit detecting a rotation of the shaft in the first direction and a rotation thereof in a second direction opposite to the first direction; and a control unit controlling the feeder unit, based on the rotation of the shaft detected by the detection unit. The control unit causes the motor of the feeder unit to rotate the shaft in the first direction and then stop the shaft, and subsequently causes the motor to rotate the shaft in the first direction before the printing unit prints, based on the rotation of the shaft in the second direction detected by the detection unit.

  • Publication number: 20230067797
    Abstract: A printing apparatus includes: a roll sheet container that contains a roll sheet around which a recording sheet is wound; a first sheet guide that makes contact with a first surface of the recording sheet; a second sheet guide that makes contact with a second surface of the recording sheet; and a transport roller that transports the recording sheet. The first and second sheet guides are disposed so as to face each other to form a sheet route along which the recording sheet is to pass. The transport roller transports the recording sheet that passed along the sheet route. The second sheet guide includes: a projection that protrudes toward the roll sheet container; and a pushing section that extends from the projection along an outer circumference of the roll sheet and in a direction away from the first sheet guide.
