  • Patent number: 10324407
    Abstract: A controller of an image forming apparatus calculates a density difference between a measurement result of a toner image having the highest density formed on a photosensitive drum, which is obtained by an image density sensor, and the highest density of a density target. When the density difference falls within a predetermined range, the controller generates a tone correction table based on a density value of a first toner image formed with a plurality of densities including the highest density, and sets, based on the density difference, an exposure amount of laser light to be applied to the photosensitive drum by an exposure device. When the density difference falls out of the predetermined range, the controller generates the tone correction table based on a density value of a second toner image having a larger number of tone levels than that of the first toner image.

  • Publication number: 20190146380
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus (10) is capable of continuing, when detecting running out of sheet in a cassette (130a) during image formation, the image formation by performing switching to another cassette (130b). When it is determined that sheets are run out based on a signal supplied from a sheet sensor (131a) of a cassette being used after exposure is started based on image data of a certain page, cleaning is performed on a secondary transfer roller (106) and exposure is started based on the image data of a target page before the cleaning is terminated.

  • Patent number: 10072649
    Abstract: An electric pump includes a transmission unit that transmits rotational drive of a motor unit, a pump unit, and a rotary valve unit. The pump unit expands and contracts a pump chamber to draw in a fluid from an inlet and discharge the fluid from an outlet. The rotary valve unit includes a valve body and a valve cover. The valve body is rotated by the rotational drive force transmitted by the transmission unit. The valve cover includes a valve-side inlet that draws in a fluid and a plurality of fluid outlets that discharges the fluid to the exterior. The rotary valve unit is configured to switch the fluid outlets that come into communication with the inlet in accordance with rotational drive of the valve body.
