  • Publication number: 20100024595
    Abstract: There is provided a method and an apparatus for treating return ores using plasma, capable of treating sintered return ores generated in a sintering process in a steel maker or return ores (iron ores) employed in other ironmaking process such as FINEX. The method of treating return ores using plasma includes: providing return ores sorted out by a sorting process; and bonding the return ores by fusing and agglomerating the return ores using plasma. Also, an apparatus for treating return ores using plasma includes a plasma heating device used to fuse and agglomerate sorted return ores. The return ores of a predetermined grain size are fusion-bonded and agglomerated using a flame of a plasma heating device. Particularly, the return ores can be treated in a massive amount to enhance productivity of a fusion-bonding process of the return ores. Furthermore, a great amount of sintered return ores generated in the sintering process can be subjected to a fewer number of re-treatment processes.

  • Publication number: 20080136050
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a mold for producing a light guide panel and a method of manufacturing the light guide panel using the mold are presented. The mold is made by manufacturing a pattern master on which a fine pattern is formed. A side mold for forming a light-receiving surface of a light guide panel is immersed in an electrolyte containing metal ions, along with the pattern master. A voltage is applied to the electrolyte and the side mold such that the fine pattern on the pattern master is transferred to the side mold with the metal ions in the electrolyte, forming a prism pattern forming portion on the side mold. The prism pattern is formed on a light-receiving portion of the light guide panel using the side mold thus prepared. The shape accuracy and surface accuracy of the prism pattern are improved by using the presented method.

  • Publication number: 20080129926
    Abstract: A display device includes a display panel part, a light source part and a light-controlling film. The display panel part includes a reflective pixel. The light source part includes a light source generating light and a light-guiding plate facing the display panel part and guiding the light from the light source to provide the light to the display panel part. The light-controlling film is disposed over the light-guiding plate to transmit a first light that is reflected by the reflective pixel and to block a second light that is obliquely leaked from the light-guiding plate. Thus, display quality of the display device may be improved in a reflective mode.
