  • Patent number: 11392693
    Abstract: To confirm whether a computer in a kitted state kitted by kitting equipment is valid. Validity confirmation equipment (30) confirms whether a computer (10) in a kitted state kitted by kitting equipment (20) is valid. The validity confirmation equipment (30) includes a storage unit (32) that stores validity confirmation data set in advance in association with the kitting equipment (20), and a validity confirmation program used for confirming the validity of kitting work on the basis of the validity confirmation data. The validity confirmation equipment (30) starts the computer (10) using the validity confirmation program when the validity confirmation equipment (30) is connected to the computer (10) and then the computer is powered on, thereby causing the computer (10) to judge whether the kitted state is valid on the basis of the validity confirmation data.

  • Patent number: 10882751
    Abstract: A method for synthesizing calcium-silicate-based porous particles (CSPPs) is described. Control over CSPP morphology and pore size is achieved through a refined solution-based synthesis, allowing loading of a variety of sealants. These particles, upon external stimuli, release the loaded sealant into the surrounding material. Methods of loading the CSPPs with loading sealant are described. The CSPPs may be used in pure form or mixed with another material to deliver self-healing, sealing and multi-functional properties to a physical structure. The composition of the CSPPs is described, along with methods of use of the CSPPs.

  • Patent number: 10661336
    Abstract: A casting mold supporting structure is provided herein which includes a support roller for supporting a part of a casting mold that is used in centrifugal casting. The casting mold has a supported surface (that is, a side surface of an end portion of the casting mold which end portion has a circular truncated cone shape) at which the casting mold is supported by the support roller. The supported surface is inclined with respect to a rotation axis of the casting mold.

  • Patent number: 10464338
    Abstract: A liquid discharge apparatus includes a casing, a liquid discharge head that includes a nozzle for discharging a liquid supplied from a liquid supply source provided in the casing, a waste liquid tank that accommodates in the casing a fluid emitted from the nozzle, and an outlet opening for emitting the fluid emitted from the nozzle to an outside of the casing without emitting the fluid into the waste liquid tank provided in the casing.

  • Patent number: 6687214
    Abstract: A recording medium includes pairs of groove tracks and land tracks having periodically formed bent portion provided side by side on a substrate, a plurality of land prepits previously formed on the land tracks and carrying information about the groove tracks, and a recording layer formed on at least the groove tracks and the land tracks. The land prepits have a radius of mean curvature smaller than a radius of mean curvature of sides of the groove tracks in land-prepit absent regions of the land prepits and are defined by curved surfaces continuously extending from the sides of the groove tracks. Those sides of the groove tracks which face the continuous curved surfaces of the land prepits are curved surfaces that stricture the groove tracks. The depth of the land prepit is larger than that of the groove track.
