  • Patent number: 10632492
    Abstract: A defect may occur in which as the amount of fluid discharged by a fluid discharge device decreases, a mask is not filled with the fluid even when the fluid is discharged. In order to fill a workpiece with the fluid, it is necessary to replace air in the workpiece corresponding to a discharge part with the fluid. The air in the workpiece is removed in advance, thereby filling the workpiece with the discharged fluid. A fluid discharge device in which, at one end of a discharge head, a suction port for sucking air in the mask on the workpiece, and a fluid discharge device having a discharge nozzle formed thereon for discharging the fluid are formed is used.

  • Publication number: 20200003428
    Abstract: A heating cooking device includes a heater, a heating chamber, an imaging unit, a lighting unit, an image processor, and a lighting controller. The heating chamber accommodates an object to be heated. The imaging unit take images of the inside of the heating chamber. The lighting unit illuminates the inside of the heating chamber. The image processor analyzes an image to detect the brightness of the object to be heated in the image. The lighting controller controls the lighting unit in response to the brightness of the object to be heated. This aspect allows the heating cooking device to accurately determine a cooking state of the object to be heated on the basis of the image of the inside of the heating chamber taken to control the heater in response to the cooking state.

  • Publication number: 20190265954
    Abstract: A design pattern discovery assist apparatus presents one or more second node candidates, which are one or more candidates of a second node, when a first node is selected regarding a flow in the middle of being edited. The first node is any node corresponding to one type of node between an input node and an output node. The second node is a node corresponding to the first node among nodes corresponding to any type between the other type of node between the input node and the output node and an input/output node, which serves as both the input and the output nodes. When any second node candidate is selected as the second node, the assist apparatus presents one or more partial flow candidates which are one or more candidates of a partial flow between the first node and the second node.

  • Publication number: 20190132960
    Abstract: A pattern formed on a silicon wafer is fine so that solder bumps formed on the silicon wafer are also fine and hence, when a failure occurs, the failure cannot be corrected so that an entire silicon wafer as a workpiece is discarded. Provided is a correction method where, on solder bumps formed on the silicon wafer, a mask in which holes are formed with the same pattern as the solder bumps is placed so as to cover the solder bumps and, thereafter, molten solder is caused to come into contact with the solder bumps through the mask thus filling hole portions of the mask with the molten solder.

  • Publication number: 20180376600
    Abstract: In conventional fluid discharge devices, a discharge head used should be increased in size according to increase in size of a workpiece such as silicon wafer. However, if the discharge head increases in length, a deformation amount of a mask used for discharging the fluid on the workpiece increases, thereby the discharging amount varies. Discharging the fluid in a reciprocating manner is performed using a fluid discharging device including a head unit having a width shorter than a length of the workpiece. A suction port having opening portions each having a slit shape are disposed on the both sides of the discharge nozzle in a vicinity of the discharge nozzle.
