  • Patent number: 8955432
    Abstract: The supply of a negative pressure to an opening P(+1) adjacent to an opening P(0) is stopped by switching a suction valve connected to the opening P(+1) from an open state to a closed state while keeping a positive pressure valve connected thereto closed. Then, near the opening P(+1), a force for holding a blanket becomes gradually weaker against a pressure force in a pressurized space. Associated with that, an air component in the pressurized space flows into a space between a portion of the blanket vertically above the opening P(+1) and an upper surface, whereby the blanket portion is lifted from the upper surface and brought into contact with the lower surface of a printing plate. In this way, a contact area is slowly and stably widened while a sudden change of a pressure in the pressurized space SP5 is suppressed.

  • Patent number: 8893647
    Abstract: A tip section of a discharge nozzle 31 is shaped like a wedge, and projections 310 which further protrude are formed at the tip of the wedge. Lower surfaces 310b of the projections 310 define a substrate-facing-surface which is brought into proximity to the substrate, and discharge outlet bearing surfaces 310c, which gradually retract back from the substrate W, are formed as if to rise from the edges of the lower surfaces 310b. At adjacent positions within the discharge outlet bearing surface 310c which are adjacent to the substrate-facing-surface 310b, discharge outlets 311 for discharging an application liquid are opened. Areas around the discharge outlets 311 and a wall around a fluid feeding path 312 are integrated with each other.

  • Publication number: 20140209250
    Abstract: In a detaching apparatus, a detachment starter bends one end part of a first plate-like body into a cylindrical or prismatic surface in a direction opposite to a second plate-like body, thereby forming a single and straight boundary line between an adhering region and a detached region. A separator increases a distance between a first holder holding the first plate-like body and a second holder holding the second plate-like body to separate the first and second plate-like bodies.

  • Publication number: 20140210133
    Abstract: A pattern forming apparatus comprises: a first holder which holds a blanket carrying a pattern forming material on one surface in a horizontal posture with a carrying surface for the pattern forming material faced up; a second holder which holds a plate for patterning the pattern forming material or a substrate, to which a pattern is transferred, as a processing object such that the processing object is proximate to and facing the carrying surface of the blanket held on the first holder; and a push-up unit which partially pushes up an effective area in a central part of the blanket from a lower surface side of the blanket to bring the effective area into contact with the processing object held on the second holder and moves along the lower surface of the blanket to change a push-up position of the blanket.
