  • Publication number: 20230296869
    Abstract: An optical scanning unit steers a light beam emitted from a laser diode in the main scanning direction by a polygon mirror. The laser diode, a collimator lens, an aperture, a first lens, the polygon mirror, and a condensing lens are sequentially placed in the optical system of the optical scanning unit. The laser diode emits a light beam in which divergent angles in intersecting two directions are different from each other. The direction in which the light beam divergent angle is large is aligned with the sub-scanning direction, and the direction in which the light beam divergent angle is small is aligned with the main scanning direction. The first lens has a first function to condense a beam in the sub-scanning direction and a second function to diffuse a beam in the main scanning direction.

  • Patent number: 11260480
    Abstract: A fastening apparatus includes a fastening device (1, 3) that heats in a non-contacting state, and then applies pressure to, a shaft part (11b) or shaft body (111) while it is inserted through the through holes (W10, W20) of workpieces (W1, W2), thereby forming at least a second head part (11c) of a fastener (11). The fastening device (1, 3) includes: a fastening die (15) that forms the second head part (11c); and a shaft-part pressure-applying device (9) that applies the pressure to the fastening die (15). A determining device (5) determines whether the fastener (11) is defective or not by calculating a load curve defined by the time and the load during which the pressure was applied and then determining whether an amount of change per unit of time in the load curve after a reference load has been exceeded is within a range of a predetermined reference value.
