  • Patent number: 9946145
    Abstract: An illumination unit includes one or more light sources each including a solid-state light-emitting device having a light emission region configured of one or more light-emission spots, one or more traveling-direction angle conversion device each converting a traveling-direction-angle of light, and an integrator including a first fly-eye lens having cells which receive light from the traveling-direction angle conversion device and a second fly-eye lens having cells which receive light from the first fly-eye lens, the integrator uniformalizing illumination distribution in a predetermined illumination area. An optical system configured with the traveling-direction angle conversion device and the first and second fly-eye lenses has an optical magnification which allows each of light source images to have a size not exceeding a size of the cell in the second fly-eye lens, the light source images being formed on the second fly-eye lens by the respective cells in the first fly-eye lens.

  • Patent number: 6457584
    Abstract: A protective cover is placed over a rack of cathode ray tube components to prevent contamination of the components and/or moisture damage to the components. Some cathode ray tube components, particularly funnels, are stockpiled so that assembly lines can be kept running even if the supply of the component becomes temporarily exhausted. However, these stockpiled funnels must be protected while in storage. The protective cover described herein can be fastened in place around a rack or pallet containing a stockpile of funnels. The protective cover can also incorporate moisture-absorbent elements to prevent moisture damage to the stockpiled funnels.

  • Patent number: 5596561
    Abstract: A loading device for a disc-shaped recording medium, such as an optical disc, includes a recording/reproducing unit, a loading member, a transport mechanism, a control mechanism and a chuck mechanism. The recording/reproducing unit has a rotating driving mechanism for rotationally driving the disc-shaped recording medium and a head for recording and/or reproducing information signals on or from the disc-shaped recording medium. The loading member is arranged facing the recording/reproducing unit on the chassis for movement along the chassis surface. The transport mechanism transports the disc-shaped recording medium introduced into the apparatus as far as the recording/reproducing unit. The control mechanism releases the disc transport operation by the transport mechanism by the loading member being moved on the chassis.
