  • Patent number: 10279368
    Abstract: A slit opening of a slit nozzle extends unidirectionally in a longitudinal direction from near the center of a circular substrate to near an outer edge of the substrate, and has a length in the longitudinal direction equal to or smaller than a radius of the substrate. When the slit nozzle discharges chemical onto the substrate, a rotary holder rotates the substrate and the slit nozzle relatively to each other about the center of the substrate. Accordingly, the chemical from the slit nozzle all adheres to a surface of the substrate to form an excellent liquid column and a chemical film on an almost entire surface of the substrate along the outer edge of the circular substrate. This yields satisfactory coating of the substrate with the chemical while waste chemical is suppressed.

  • Publication number: 20190063415
    Abstract: A chamber has at least three openings, or a first opening, a second opening, and a third opening formed therein that are in communication with a reservoir. The second opening is higher in level than the first opening. The third opening is used for discharging a liquid within the reservoir by introducing gas through at least one of the first opening and the second opening into the reservoir. Since the third opening is the lowest in level among the three openings, the liquid stored in the reservoir is able to be drained easily.

  • Publication number: 20190060789
    Abstract: A chamber has a first opening, a second opening, and a third opening. The second opening is higher in level than the first and third openings, and is located at the highest position of a reservoir. Air bubbles are easily collected around the second opening, higher in level than the third opening, due to buoyancy. Moreover, the chamber includes an upper slope on an upper inner wall thereof such that a sectional area of the chamber becomes smaller toward the highest position of the reservoir. The upper slope causes the air bubbles not to stagnate but to be guided to the second opening along the upper slope. This makes easy discharge of the air bubbles from the chamber.

    Abstract: A coating method of coating a substrate with a chemical includes a solvent supplying step and a chemical supplying step. In the solvent supplying step, a solvent is supplied to the substrate. After the solvent supplying step, the chemical is supplied to the substrate in the chemical supplying step. The solvent supplying step includes a first step. The first step causes the substrate to rotate at a first rotation speed, causes a solvent nozzle to move between a central position above a center portion of the substrate and a peripheral position above a peripheral portion of the substrate, and causes the solvent nozzle to dispense the solvent.

  • Publication number: 20160332614
    Abstract: When the drive mode of a hybrid vehicle is a dual motor drive mode, a counter C is incremented by value 1. When the drive mode is not the dual motor drive mode, the counter C is reset to value 0. When the counter C becomes equal to or higher than a reference value Cref1, a lubrication measure flag F is set to value 1. Setting the lubrication measure flag F to the value 1 causes a carrier of a planetary gear to be rotated and causes pinion gears to revolve around the carrier. In the dual motor drive mode, the hybrid vehicle is driven with stooping rotation of the carrier of the planet airy gear. This is likely to cause a shortage of lubricant oil at a pinion gear that rotates revolution at the upper position in the planetary gear. The control of rotating the carrier and thereby revolving the pinion gears around the carrier changes the position of the pinion gear from the upper position to the lower position and thereby reduces the shortage of lubricant oil.

  • Patent number: 9368383
    Abstract: A treating section has substrate treatment lines arranged one over the other for treating substrates while transporting the substrates substantially horizontally. An IF section transports the substrates fed from each substrate treatment line to an exposing machine provided separately from this apparatus. The substrates are transported to the exposing machine in the order in which the substrates are loaded into the treating section. The throughput of this apparatus can be improved greatly, without increasing the footprint, since the substrate treatment lines are arranged one over the other. Each substrate can be controlled easily since the order of the substrates transported to the exposing machine is in agreement with the order of the substrates loaded into the treating section.
