    Abstract: A parking brake structure having a simple configuration that is reduced in the number of parts and weight, is provided. The parking brake structure is for use in a vehicle including a driving force transmission member and a rotation member. The driving force transmission member is configured to transmit a driving force of a power unit to a rear wheel. The rotation member is wound with the driving force transmission member while being fixed to the rear wheel. The parking brake structure includes a locking member configured to engage with the rotation member to prevent the rotation member from rotating. The rotation member has an outer circumferential end face that is formed with a plurality of protrusions and recesses between the protrusions adjacent to each other. The protrusions are used to engage with the driving force transmission member. The locking member is formed with a protrusion engageable with the recess.

  • Patent number: 11718110
    Abstract: A roll sheet, in which a continuous sheet is wound in a roll form, is caused to rotate in a forward direction to supply the sheet to a printing unit. First and second sensors are arranged at positions facing an outer circumferential surface of the roll sheet and deviated in an axis line direction of the roll sheet. Outputs of the first and second sensors are changed in accordance with a distance to a sheet of the roll sheet. A rotation direction of the roll sheet is switched from a forward direction to a reverse direction on the basis of the outputs of the first and second sensors while the roll sheet is being rotated in the reverse direction.

  • Publication number: 20230227282
    Abstract: A sheet supplying apparatus, which is capable of winding a sheet tightly, includes a driving unit configured to cause a roll including a wound consecutive sheet to rotate in a first direction for feeding the sheet or a second direction opposite to the first direction, a sensor that detects a leading end portion of the sheet separated from an outer circumferential surface of the roll, and a contact body that presses the outer circumferential surface. Before the sheet is fed, in a state in which the contact body presses the outer circumferential surface, the driving unit causes the roll to continuously rotate in the second direction until a detection cycle of the leading end portion by the sensor is less than a predetermined value.

  • Publication number: 20230202783
    Abstract: A sheet feeding apparatus includes a support portion, a guide portion, and a contact unit. The support portion rotatably supports a roll having a sheet wound to the roll. In loading the roll, the guide portion guides the roll in a guide direction from above the support portion to the support portion. The contact unit contacts an outer periphery of the roll supported by the support portion. The contact unit contacts the roll from upstream in the guide direction, and, in feeding the sheet, the sheet is fed from the roll supported by the support portion.
