  • Patent number: 10699742
    Abstract: A tape drive-implemented method, according to one embodiment, includes: detecting a read error, and sending one or more instructions to perform a first re-read attempt on a portion of a magnetic tape corresponding to the read error. In response to determining that the first re-read attempt was unsuccessful, a range of tension settings is selected. A range of lateral offsets is also selected. Moreover, one or more instructions are sent to apply each unique combination of a tension setting from the range of tension settings and a lateral offset from the range of lateral offsets. For each of the unique combinations applied, one or more instructions are sent to perform a second phase re-read attempt on the portion of the magnetic tape corresponding to the read error. Furthermore, a determination is made as to whether the second phase re-read attempt was performed successfully for any of the unique combinations.

  • Patent number: 10582861
    Abstract: The embodiment provides a blood pressure measurement device equipped with an air bag drive unit, a pressing surface formed with pressure sensors, and a control unit which calculates first blood pressure values on the basis of a first pressure pulse wave that was detected by the pressure sensors, generates calibration data using the first blood pressure values, and calculates second blood pressure values by calibrating, using the calibration data, a second pressure pulse wave that is detected by the pressure sensors in a state that the pressing force is set at an optimum pressing force. The control unit performs the processing of calculating second blood pressure values by calibrating the second pressure pulse wave if detection conditions of the second pressure pulse wave coincide with detection conditions of a pressure pulse wave used for generation of the calibration data.

  • Patent number: 10512968
    Abstract: A method for managing a casting process based on measured properties of molding sand is provided so that casting defects or energy used can be reduced by changing the molding conditions for the mold to be produced or changing the steps after molding. The method for managing a casting process based on the properties of the molding sand includes a step (1) of measuring the properties of the molding sand just before the molding sand is supplied to a molding machine (40) and a step (2) of determining if the measured properties of the molding sand comply with predetermined properties so as to then switch between a step of molding a mold when the measured properties do comply with the predetermined properties and a step of molding a mold when the measured properties do not comply with the predetermined properties.

  • Publication number: 20190384716
    Abstract: A tape drive that can select one or more wraps from any available wraps on a tape medium for writing temporary data upon detecting a flush condition. The one or more wraps selected for writing temporary data can be selected from wraps otherwise reserved for normal writing operations. Selection of the one or more wraps for temporary writing may be based on multiple considerations, including proximity to the wrap of current data writing operations and tape medium degradation. The one or more wraps selected for writing temporary data may be selected with or without regard of their assigned read/write direction. Assigning wraps based on proximity and/or degradation can lead to certain operational advantages including reducing tape write head movement in the transverse direction and spreading tape medium wear more evenly across the surface of the tape medium.

  • Patent number: 10497391
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to rewinding a tape medium. Data is written to the tape medium under a first tension. An end data region of the tape medium is identified, where the end data region is not the end of the tape medium. An indication that the tape medium is to be unmounted is received. The position of the tape medium is moved to the end data region. The tape medium is then rewound from the end data region under a second tension, the second tension being lower than the first tension.

  • Patent number: 10437511
    Abstract: The method includes receiving a read request for a record stored on the tape. The tape is mounted in a tape drive which includes a data buffer. The tape stores data as a plurality of data sets. Each of the plurality of data sets contains one or more records. The method also includes buffering at least one of the plurality of data sets to the data buffer. At least one of the plurality of data sets includes a target data set which includes the requested record. The method also includes monitoring read operations on the tape to count a number of continuous read operations occurring in a backward direction relative to the tape. The method also includes, in response to the number of continuous read operations reaching a threshold, activating a read-behind mode that executes an extended buffer operation on data preceding a record requested to be read next.
