  • Patent number: 10891332
    Abstract: A control method analysis unit acquires a correspondence relation between signs and model numbers from an apparatus table of an instrumentation diagram, and acquires signs and apparatus symbols, and connection relation among apparatuses, from a drawing of the instrumentation diagram. Subsequently, the control method analysis unit acquires an apparatus classification drawn on the diagram by searching an instrumentation apparatus classification database based on the model numbers, and decides a temperature control method employed by an instrumentation indicated in the instrumentation diagram, from the apparatus classification and the connection relation. The control method analysis unit then links the decided temperature control method to the instrumentation diagram accumulated in a case database. A search processing unit extracts a corresponding instrumentation diagram by searching the case database based on a temperature control method designated as a search condition.

  • Publication number: 20200385231
    Abstract: A sheet folding apparatus includes a conveyance member to convey a sheet from an ejection member at a first speed lower than a conveyance speed by the ejection member or a second speed substantially same as or higher than the conveyance speed; a registration member; a pair of first and second rollers to rotate in forward and reverse directions; a plurality of folding rollers downstream from the second roller, to rotate in forward and reverse directions to fold the sheet; and circuitry to determine whether the sheet is equal to or smaller than a reference length from an exit position from the ejection member to a folding start position downstream from the pair of the first and second rollers.

  • Patent number: 10857776
    Abstract: A sheet separation device separates a two-ply sheet in which two sheets are bonded together at a portion. The sheet separation device includes a rotator, a nipping member opposite the rotator, to nip the two-ply sheet with the rotator, a conveyor to convey the two-ply sheet between the rotator and the nipping member, a winding member adjacent to the rotator, to wind the two-ply sheet around the rotator, and control circuitry. In winding the two-ply sheet, the control circuitry rotates the rotator at a first speed faster than a second speed at which the two-ply sheet moves to the rotator via the conveyor, and creates a difference in winding circumferential length between the two sheets, thereby separating the two sheets. The conveyor conveys the two-ply sheet with a bonded portion of the two-ply sheet being an upstream end or a downstream end in a conveyance direction of the two-ply sheet.
