  • Patent number: 10968977
    Abstract: A torsional vibration damper whose vibration damping performance will not be reduced in a high speed range. In the torsional vibration damper, a planetary gear is oscillated within a first oscillating range when a torsional torque is smaller than a reference torque, and within a second oscillating range when the torsional torque is greater than the reference torque. Each backlash between the pinion gear and at least one of a sun gear and a ring gear within the second oscillating range is individually wider than each backlash between the pinion gear and the sun gear and each backlash between the pinion gear and the ring gear within the first oscillating range.

  • Patent number: 10892174
    Abstract: A substrate cleaning brush for cleaning a wafer includes a brush main body, a brush holding unit, and a main flow path forming body. The brush main body has a liquid permeable structure and includes a lower surface that comes into contact with a substrate. The brush holding unit holds the brush main body while exposing a distal end portion in a vertical direction of the brush main body to the outside. The main flow path forming body includes a main flow path and a plurality of sub flow paths. The main flow path is formed to allow a processing liquid supplied from the outside to pass therethrough. The plurality of sub flow paths branch off from the main flow path, extend outward in a width direction perpendicular to the vertical direction of the brush main body, and are connected to an upper surface of the brush main body.

  • Publication number: 20200068755
    Abstract: In a component mounter including a component holding tool configured to hold lead of a lead component, a position of mark given to the component holding tool and a position of a distal end of the lead are calculated based on captured image data, and when a distance between the position of the mark and the position of the distal end of the lead is smaller than a threshold, mounting work is performed, whereas when the distance is equal to or greater than the threshold, the mounting work is not performed. As a result, for example, mounting work on a lead component having a lead which is greatly bent can be avoided, thereby ensuring proper mounting work.
