A gripping and lifting device (30) of slabs (20) comprises a support cross member (31) able to support at least a gripping organ (32) of a slab (20), in which the gripping organ (32) of the slab (20) comprises at least a bearing body (321) inferiorly hung on the support cross member (31) and provided with a support shelf (322) defining a rest plane for a lower edge (23) of the slab (20), and a gripping body (323) provided with a gripping hook (324) of an upper edge (24) of the slab (20) and slidably associated to the bearing body (321) from a neared position thereto to a distanced position therefrom, in opposition to pushing means (327).


Patent
Olivetti | Date: 2011-06-07

A method of manufacturing an ink jet printhead includes: providing a silicon substrate including active ejecting elements; providing a hydraulic structure layer; providing a silicon orifice plate having a plurality of nozzles for ejection of said ink; and assembling the silicon substrate with said hydraulic structure layer and said silicon orifice plate. Providing the silicon orifice plate comprises: providing a silicon wafer having a substantially planar extension delimited by a first and a second surfaces; performing a thinning step at the second surface so as to remove a central portion having a preset height; and forming in the silicon wafer a plurality of through holes, each defining a respective nozzle for ejection of the ink.

A fluid dispenser device (10) which comprises a bearing frame (20) provided with a plurality of ground-resting wheels (23, 24, 25) of which at least a drive wheel (24) activated in rotation by at least a motor (30) located on-board the bearing frame (20), a tank (40) of at least a fluid to be dispensed supported by the bearing frame (20) and a pump (50), located on-board the bearing frame (20), able to collect the fluid contained in the tank (40) so as to send the fluid under pressure to at least a dispenser nozzle (73) via a hose (70) interposed between the dispenser nozzle (73) and the tank (40), wherein the hose (70) is wound about at least a hose reel (80) fixed to the bearing frame (20), so as to be able to activate the dispenser nozzle (73) between at least a retracted position, in which the dispenser nozzle (73) is arranged in proximity of the bearing frame (20), and an extracted position, in which the dispenser nozzle (73) is arranged in a distal position from the bearing frame (20).


Patent
Olivetti | Date: 2012-12-28

It is disclosed a printer comprising an opening through which one or more sheets to be treated could be introduced therein and further comprising a paper board for supporting said one or more sheets to be treated, wherein said paper board comprises at least one root and at least a free end, wherein said at least one free end is movable with respect to said at least one root when it is subject to a vertical load.


Patent
Olivetti | Date: 2011-12-28

An ink-jet printer includes a printing station for ink-jet printing on a thermoplastic card includes a printhead coupled to a reservoir containing an ink comprising: a medium of a low-boiling organic solvent, an auxiliary solvent of a high-boiling organic solvent, and a colouring component soluble in the medium. A support carriage supports the card and is drivable between a first position in which the carriage does not face the printhead and a second position in which the carriage faces the printhead. A driving motor moves the carriage between the first and second positions along a guide member interposed between the printhead and a reference member to prevent ink ejected by the printhead from reaching the reference member. A detection device mounted on the carriage detects the reference member and generates a signal used by a control unit to regulate the driving motor.


Patent
Olivetti | Date: 2011-12-28

An ink-jet printer for printing on cards includes a printing station having an ink-jet printhead. A reservoir containing an ink is coupled to the ink-jet printhead. The ink includes: a medium consisting of a low-boiling organic solvent, an auxiliary solvent consisting of a high-boiling organic solvent, and a colouring component soluble in said medium. A driving system is adapted to drive the printhead between a first operative condition wherein the ink ejected by the printhead impinges on the card, and at least a second operative condition, wherein the ink ejected by the printhead does not impinge on the card. A control unit is active on the printhead for commanding ejections thereof, and on the driving system for controlling movement of the printhead. The control unit is configured for commanding an ink ejection in the second operative condition before ink ejection in the first operative condition.


Patent
Olivetti | Date: 2010-12-30

An ink jet printing method includes providing an ensemble of dots to be printed. A current run is made of through the ensemble of dots to be printed, which includes, for each of dot of the ensemble of dots, deleting all neighboring dots from the current run having a distance less than at least one predetermined value and keeping non-deleted dots as remaining dots in the current run. The remaining dots are assigned to a certain layer corresponding to the current run. The remaining dots of the current run are then removed from the ensemble of dots. The foregoing steps are repeated until there are no further dots in the ensemble of dots.


Patent
Olivetti | Date: 2012-12-28

It is disclosed a printer comprising a front opening through which one or more documents to be treated could be introduced therein, wherein the printer comprises a first path for transporting said one or more documents from a first position to a second position and back to the first position; wherein the printer further comprises a second path for transporting said one or more documents from said first position to an exit, wherein said second path comprises a flap for deviating said one or more documents towards said exit and a separator for directing the one or more documents to one of a first tray and a second tray.

The endocannabinoid system was revealed following the understanding of the mechanism of action of marijuana's major psychotropic principle, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, and includes two G-proteincoupled receptors (GPCRs; the cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors), their endogenous ligands (the endocannabinoids, the best studied of which are anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG)), and the proteins that regulate the levels and activity of these receptors and ligands. However, other minor lipid metabolites different from, but chemically similar to, anandamide and 2-AG have also been suggested to act as endocannabinoids. Thus, unlike most other GPCRs, cannabinoid receptors appear to have more than one endogenous agonist, and it has been often wondered what could be the physiological meaning of this peculiarity. In 1999, it was proposed that anandamide might also activate other targets, and in particular the transient receptor potential of vanilloid type-1 (TRPV1) channels. Over the last decade, this interaction has been shown to occur both in peripheral tissues and brain, during both physiological and pathological conditions. TRPV1 channels can be activated also by another less abundant endocannabinoid, N-arachidonoyldopamine, but not by 2-AG, and have been proposed by some authors to act as ionotropic endocannabinoid receptors. This article will discuss the latest discoveries on this subject, and discuss, among others, how anandamide and 2-AG differential actions at TRPV1 and cannabinoid receptors contribute to making this signalling system a versatile tool available to organisms to fine-tune homeostasis. © 2012 The Royal Society.
