  • Publication number: 20220302809
    Abstract: An apparatus for assembling a coil includes a blade inserted into a slot of a stator core in a state where insulating paper is inserted into the slot. In a method for assembling the coil, the insulating paper is inserted into the slot of the stator core, the blade is inserted into the slot into which the insulating paper is inserted, the coil is inserted into the slot into which the blade is inserted, the coil being inserted in a direction opposite to a direction in which the blade is inserted. When the coil is inserted into the slot, the blade is pulled out from the slot along with the insertion of the coil into the slot.

  • Publication number: 20220302378
    Abstract: A semiconductor memory device includes a first interconnect, a second interconnect, a first storage layer, and a first insulating film. The first insulating film is provided along a surface of a part of the second interconnect and a surface of the first storage layer. The first insulating film is composed of Si, N, and O. The atomic ratio (N/O) between N and O in the first insulating film is not less than 1.0 at a first position which is the position of the second interconnect-side end surface of the first storage layer in a third direction. The atomic ratio (N/O) between N and O in the first insulating film is less than 1.0 at a second position which is the position of the end surface of the second interconnect, opposite to the first storage layer-side end surface, in the third direction.

  • Patent number: 10707709
    Abstract: A rotor includes a rotor core that is formed by stacking a plurality of steel plates each of which has an opening; a magnet that is inserted in a magnet hole formed by disposing the openings such that the openings overlap each other; and a magnetic plate that is disposed between an inner wall defining the magnet hole and the magnet so as to prevent contact between the inner wall defining the magnet hole and the magnet. At least a contact portion of the magnetic plate is subjected to an insulating process, the contact portion of the magnetic plate contacting the magnet.

  • Patent number: 10116175
    Abstract: A stator and a rotary electric machine include a stator core including a plurality of stacked annular electromagnetic steel plates with coupling portions. The coupling portions are arranged with a pitch of an integral multiple of a central angle. The central angle is defined as an angle between two adjacent magnetic poles of the same polarity relative to a rotational center of the rotor. When a number of the coupling portions is an odd number, fixing portions are arranged with the same pitch as the pitch of the coupling portions, or with a pitch corresponding to a divisor of the pitch of the coupling portions. When a number of the coupling portions is an even number, the fixing portions are arranged with a pitch corresponding to a divisor of the pitch of the coupling portions, or a divisor of 180°.

  • Patent number: 6636953
    Abstract: A receiving apparatus that sequentially receives and accumulates a plurality of broadcast contents into a storage medium deletes each content accumulated in the storage medium after a predetermined time period as the capacity of the storage medium is limited. The receiving apparatus is connected to at least one external device, and accepts a user designation of a content to be stored and of an external device into which the content is to be stored. The receiving apparatus schedules the transfer of the content in the available time period of the external device, and transfers the content to the external device if the device is not busy at the scheduled time.
