  • Publication number: 20220157579
    Abstract: Disclosed is a stage including a shaft, a first supporting plate over the shaft, a heater arranged in a trench formed in the first supporting plate, and a gas-supplying tube arranged in the shaft and configured to blow a gas to the first supporting plate. The first supporting plate may have a disk shape, and a cross section of the gas-supplying tube parallel to a surface of the first supporting plate may overlap a center of the disk shape. The first supporting plate may be configured to block the gas so that the gas is not released to a chamber in which the stage is arranged.

  • Patent number: 11052455
    Abstract: A caulking jig comprises a main body, a blade portion having a blade edge, a projection member fit in the main body, an urging member which urges the projection member, and an engagement mechanism configured to engage the projection member to the main body. In a state in which the projection member is not engaged, the projection member is held at a projected position where a distal end portion of the projection member is projected from the blade edge. In a state in which the projection member is engaged, the projection member is held at an entered position where the distal end portion is retracted to a more entered position than the blade edge.
