  • Publication number: 20200260058
    Abstract: A projection system includes an invisible light projector, a background member, an imaging unit, an image generator, and a visible light projector. The invisible light projector projects a predetermined invisible light image onto the object via invisible light. The background member is disposed behind the object in a direction of the invisible light emitted from the invisible light projector. The imaging unit captures an image of the invisible light projected from the invisible light projector. The image generator measures a shape of the object based on the image captured by the imaging unit to generate image data showing image content for projection onto the object in accordance with the measured shape. The visible light projector projects the image content shown by the image data onto the object via visible light. The background member has a light shielding surface that does not diffusely reflect the invisible light incident thereon.

  • Patent number: 10728508
    Abstract: A projection system projects an image corresponding to a shape of an object. The projection system includes a non-visible light projection unit, an imager, an image generation unit, and a visible-light projection unit. The non-visible light projection unit projects a predetermined non-visible light image with non-visible light having predetermined polarized light as a main component, onto the object and a background member that reflects the non-visible light while the background member maintains the predetermined polarized light. The imager images a non-visible light image reflected by the object and the background member while blocking the non-visible light of the predetermined polarized light, and generates imaged data. The image generation unit measures the shape of the object based on the imaged data, and generates image data according to a measurement result. The visible-light projection unit projects an image shown by the image data, onto the object with visible light.

  • Patent number: 10612130
    Abstract: A vacuum processing apparatus having a small installation area is provided. A lifting plate is arranges inside a vacuum chamber, and a substrate holding device is arranged on the lifting plate to be able to be lifted up and down. An upper side processing device and a lower side processing device are provided in a processing region located beside a lifting region where the lifting plate moves up and down. An upper side moving device and a lower side moving device make the substrate holding device pass through the processing region, and a transfer device transfers the substrate holding device between the upper side moving device or the lower side moving device and the lifting plate. Because vacuum processing can be performed on the upper side and the lower side, the installation area of the vacuum processing apparatus is small.
