  • Publication number: 20200186690
    Abstract: To shorten an operation time for a tilt angle and to avoid unintentional changing of the tilt angle to an improper tilt angle, an imaging control apparatus for controlling a camera limits a tilt angle based on an installation direction of the camera and information stored in a memory, wherein the information relates to the limitation of the tilt angle corresponding to respective installation direction of the camera.

  • Patent number: 9471260
    Abstract: An angle of rotation of a sheet is determined so as to match a processing area that is processed in a processing step defined by specification information with a processing area that is processed on the sheet placed in a placement direction designated in correspondence with a processing apparatus used in the processing step. After rotating the designated placement method by the determined angle of rotation, the resultant direction is printed in, for example, an area to be trimmed off as a placement direction of the sheet in the processing step.

  • Patent number: 8780393
    Abstract: In a print control apparatus which causes a print apparatus to print via a hot folder, it is monitored whether a file is submitted to the hot folder. Upon submitting the file, it is identified whether the submitted file is a reference information file indicating an external content file, and, upon identifying the reference information file, it is determined whether an acquisition process of acquiring the external content file indicated by the reference information file is to be executed by the print control apparatus or the print apparatus. Upon determining that the acquisition process is to be executed by the print control apparatus, print data is generated based on the acquired external content file, and, upon determining that the acquisition process is to be executed by the print apparatus, print data including the reference information file indicating the external content file is generated.

  • Publication number: 20050165196
    Abstract: The adhesive resin of the invention comprises a polyimide resin obtained by reacting a diamine component containing the compound (1) as an essential component with a tetracarboxylic dianhydride component. The diamine component contains a silicone diamine having a specific structure and/or the tetracarboxylic dianhydride component contains a silicone acid dianhydride having a specific structure. Film adhesives made by using the adhesive resin preferably together with a thermosetting resin, and, if necessary, an inorganic filler are excellent in low-temperature adhesion, resistance to moisture absorption, heat resistance, and workability in adhesive adhering and are favorably usable as semiconductor-mounting materials for adhering semiconductor elements to substrates.
