  • Patent number: 11679606
    Abstract: There is provided with printing apparatus. A printing unit prints an image on a printing medium and is able to move. A cutter unit is able to connect with or separate from the printing unit, and, by following a movement of the printing unit, cuts the printing medium. A control unit, in a case where a predetermined condition is satisfied after the printing medium is cut by the cutter unit, causes the printing unit to perform printing on a succeeding printing medium, while moving the printing unit in a state in which the cutter unit is connected with the printing unit.

  • Patent number: 11676834
    Abstract: In substrate processing, by supplying a first processing liquid onto an upper surface 91 of a substrate 9 held in a horizontal state, a liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid which entirely covers the upper surface 91 is formed. Further, by heating the substrate 9, a vapor layer 82 of the first processing liquid is formed between the upper surface 91 and the liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid on the upper surface 91. Then, by supplying a second processing liquid onto the upper surface 91 of the substrate 9, the liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid is removed from the upper surface 91. It is thereby possible to appropriately remove extraneous matters 89 from the upper surface 91 of the substrate 9, which are taken in the liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid as the vapor layer 82 is formed.

  • Patent number: 11289987
    Abstract: A motor module includes a motor and a rotation angle detector including a rotation angle calculator that calculates a rotation angle based on a voltage and an electric current of the motor, a first signal generator that generates a first signal based on a ripple component included in the electric current, an operation part that corrects the rotation angle based on the first signal and the rotation angle, and a rotation information calculator that calculates information on rotation of the motor based on an output from the operation part. The operation part outputs, to the rotation angle calculator, a command to correct the rotation angle when the first signal is generated for the first time while the rotation angle is within a predetermined angle range, and ignores the first signal that is generated for the second or subsequent time while the rotation angle is within the predetermined angle range.

  • Patent number: 10965228
    Abstract: A rotation angle detector includes a rotational angular velocity calculator that calculates a rotational angular velocity of a motor based on an inter-terminal voltage of the motor detected by a voltage detector and a current flowing through the motor and detected by a current detector; a ripple detector that detects a ripple component included in the current; and a failure detector that detects a failure of any one of the voltage detector, the current detector, and the ripple detector based on outputs from the detectors. The failure detector determines that the failure has occurred when a state, where the outputs from two of the voltage detector, the current detector, and the ripple detector indicate normal rotation and the output from the remaining one of the voltage detector, the current detector, and the ripple detector does not indicate normal rotation, continues for a predetermined period of time.
