2019 AUG 14 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Daily Asia Business -- According to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by NewsRx journalists, a patent application by the inventors NAKAJIMA, Yasumasa (Shiojiri, Nagano, Japan), filed on June 2, 2017, was made available online on July 25, 2019.

The assignee for this patent application is Seiko Epson Corporation (Tokyo, Japan).

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: “Paper recycling has been widely generalized from the viewpoint of resource utilization, but in the past, industrial manufacturing of a recycled paper sheet from an accumulated waste paper sheet was employed. In recent years, however, a technique and apparatus for forming a document printed and discarded in a business office into a recycled paper sheet in a business office and inserting the recycled paper sheet as a printing paper sheet to a printing machine have been disclosed (refer to Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication Nos. 7-175384, 10-171318, and 2008-33034).

“Each of the inventions disclosed in Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication Nos. 7-175384, 10-171318, and 2008-33034 is a combined apparatus that supplies a recycled paper sheet directly to a printing apparatus from an apparatus for recycling a paper sheet on which the printing is finished, that is, a so-called waste paper sheet, and recycling of the waste paper sheet and printing onto the recycled paper sheet can be continuously performed.

“However, the method of recycling the waste paper sheet in the apparatuses disclosed in Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication Nos. 7-75384, 10-171318, and 2008-33034 forms a recording target medium on which new printing is possible by physically removing a recording medium which is called a toner that adheres to a surface of the recording target medium (paper sheet). Contrary to this, a small-sized apparatus has been suggested in which the waste paper sheet is pulverized to a fibrous form and a new paper sheet can be formed, but in this case, it is possible to stabilize the quality of the recycled paper sheet and obtain high productivity by continuously inserting the waste paper sheet to be inserted into a recycling step and by continuously operating the apparatus.

“In other words, by the continuous operation of the above-described apparatus, the recycled paper sheets are continuously supplied from the recycling apparatus to a paper sheet tray and the like of the printing apparatus. Meanwhile, since the printing apparatuses are normally used intermittently, when the recycled paper sheets stored in the paper sheet tray are held by paper sheet pickup means for printing, substantially at the same time, there may be a case where the recycled paper sheet is supplied from the recycling apparatus to the paper sheet tray. In this case, there is a concern of occurrence of jamming caused by paper sheet complication of two paper sheets.

“This is because an abnormal state is determined in the printing apparatus, the printing apparatus is stopped, and the work efficiency remarkably deteriorates. Here, a paper sheet recycling and printing apparatus which prevents complication with the recycled paper sheet which is supplied to the printing apparatus and is already stored therein, that is, so-called occurrence of jamming, while continuously operating the paper sheet recycling apparatus and storing the recycled paper sheet.”

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent application, NewsRx editors also obtained the inventors’ summary information for this patent application: “The present invention has been made to solve at least a part of the above-described problems, and it is possible to realize the following aspects or application examples.”

The claims supplied by the inventors are:
