  • Patent number: 11417496
    Abstract: The problem addressed by the present disclosure is to provide a stage device, a charged particle beam device, and a vacuum device, with which it is possible to increase the speed and the acceleration of positioning and to suppress the leakage of a magnetic field. As a means to resolve this problem, a stage device 100 comprises a support stage 10, a floating mechanism 20, and a movement stage 30. The movement stage 30 has a propulsion-applying unit 36, and the support stage 10 has a propulsion-receiving unit 11. The stage device 100 is configured so that when the movement stage 30 moves and the propulsion-applying unit 36 contacts or approaches the propulsion-receiving unit 11, the propulsion-applying unit 36 applies propulsion in the movement direction to the propulsion-receiving unit 11.

  • Publication number: 20210403131
    Abstract: A small watercraft system includes: a watercraft body; a watercraft body manipulation member through which a watercraft body manipulation command is input by an operator; a drive source that allows the watercraft body to plane; a steering device that allows the watercraft body to be steered; and a control device that controls the drive source and the steering device to operate the watercraft body. The control device determines whether a mode switching condition is satisfied, the mode switching condition including an operator's absence condition that the operator is absent from the watercraft body. Upon determining that the mode switching condition is satisfied, the control device executes an operator-absent manipulation mode in which the control device moves the watercraft body by controlling the drive source and the steering device based on an operator-absent manipulation command independent of the watercraft body manipulation command.
