  • Patent number: 10733962
    Abstract: An image generation device includes: a rasterizing portion generating, according string data, an element-blank image including a first element image indicating a first-type string element of a string and a blank image indicating a blank; an embedding portion identifying and embedding a second element image indicating a second-type string element of the string in the blank image; a first data storage portion in which a first data group used to generate the first element image is stored; and a second data storage portion in which a second data group including an image to be embedded as the second element image is stored. The rasterizing portion generates the first element image based on the first data group, and generates the blank image at a position where the second element image is to be embedded by identifying an embedding position of the second element image.

  • Publication number: 20200179005
    Abstract: A stage device capable of performing piercing vibration and translational driving by using one actuator, and performing very low-speed driving in the translational driving with high accuracy. The stage device includes an X stage having a vibration actuator that includes an vibration element and a contact body, one of which is a movable body connected to an object to be driven, and drives the object to be driven in an X-axis direction, and a control section that controls driving of the vibration actuator. The control section causes two-phase AC voltages to be applied to an electromechanical energy conversion element to thereby excite predetermined vibrations in the vibration element, to drive the vibration actuator by switching between a movement mode for moving the object to be driven in the X-axis direction and a vibration mode for vibrating the object to be driven in the X-axis direction.

    Abstract: The steel material for a soft magnetic part according to the present invention has a chemical composition consisting of, in mass %, C: 0.02 to 0.13%, Si: 0.005 to 0.50%, Mn: 0.10 to 0.70%, P: 0.035% or less, S: 0.050% or less, Al: 0.005 to 1.300%, V: 0.02 to 0.50%, and N: 0.003 to 0.030%, with the balance being Fe and impurities. The average grain diameter of ferrite grains in the steel material for a soft magnetic part ranges from 5 to 200 pun. Further, in the ferrite grains, the number Sv (number/mm2) of precipitates having a circle-equivalent diameter of 30 nm or more satisfies Formula (1): Sv?10V×7.0×106??(1) where the V content (mass %) in the steel material for a soft magnetic part is substituted into V in Formula (1).

  • Patent number: 10414010
    Abstract: In a machine tool and a control apparatus thereof, a repetitive movement unit is configured so that the cutting tool performs one repetitive movement with respect to multiple relative rotations between the workpiece and the cutting tool and so that a rotation angle of the relative rotation between the workpiece and the cutting tool during relative movement at a second speed is smaller than a rotation angle of the relative rotation during relative movement at a first speed in one repetitive movement. This configuration limits degradation of machining efficiency when the cutting tool machines the workpiece by performing one repetitive movement with respect to multiple relative rotations between the workpiece and the cutting tool.
