  • Patent number: 10307820
    Abstract: A suction pressure casting method uses a casting device that includes a holding furnace for accumulating molten metal, a metal mold and a core forming a cavity, a molten-metal pressurizing tank that supplies a pressurizing gas, and a suction and exhaust tank for sucking and exhausting the inside of the cavity. A preset decompression pattern of a casting process is compared with a measured pressure pattern of the cavity and the core that is measured during actual casting. A corrected decompression pattern is calculated based on a difference therebetween. The preset decompression pattern at the time of the next casting is then corrected by using the corrected decompression pattern.

  • Patent number: 8818183
    Abstract: A focus detection apparatus that performs a first determination for determining whether a signal level indicating an amount of the electric charges accumulated in the photoelectric conversion element has reached a lower threshold, and a second determination for determining whether the signal level has reached a higher second. During a time period from when it is determined that the signal level has reached the lower threshold to when it is determined that the signal level has reached the higher threshold, the second determination is performed at a shorter time interval if an elapsed time from when the accumulation of the electric charges is started to when it is determined that the signal level has reached the first threshold is shorter than a reference time, and at a longer time interval if the elapsed time is longer than the reference time.
