  • Patent number: 10300558
    Abstract: A laser processing machine includes a laser oscillator. The laser oscillator excites a laser beam having a wavelength in a 1 ?m band or a shorter wavelength band. One process fiber transmits the laser beam emitted from the laser oscillator. A focusing optical element focuses, when a workpiece is irradiated with the laser beam emitted from the process fiber, the laser beam on a plurality of spots in a unit area within a unit time, the unit area having a radius of 0.5 mm of an optical axis of the laser beam, and the unit time being a time from when the workpiece starts to melt to when the melting of the workpiece ends.

  • Patent number: 10060107
    Abstract: An automatic water faucet device 1 includes: an electrolysis tank 37 that electrolyzes water to generate electrolyzed water; a second water discharge part 13 for discharging the electrolyzed water, a second flow path 18 that extends from the electrolysis tank 37 to the second water discharge part 13; a second solenoid valve 28 that switches between supply and blocking of normal water with respect to the electrolysis tank 37, and a controller 40 that controls the electrolysis tank 37 and the second solenoid valve 28.
