  • Publication number: 20150265809
    Abstract: A guide wire includes a coil body composed of a proximal-end coil and a distal-end coil connected to each other at a connecting portion in a manner that secures alignment of the two coils and sufficient penetration of a brazing metal into the connecting portion of the coils. The distal-end coil is formed of a first wire that is coiled, and the proximal-end coil is formed of a second wire that is coiled. The distal-end coil and the proximal-end coil are connected to each other with alternately disposed windings of the first wire and the second wire. Furthermore, the connecting portion of the coil body includes a gap. In this manner, the central axes of the two coils can be easily kept aligned with each other even before brazing, and a brazing metal or the like can easily penetrate into the connecting portion.

  • Publication number: 20110243422
    Abstract: A paper-sheet processing apparatus including a reading unit, a risk-level determining unit, and a check processing unit is provided. The reading unit reads, from a check, check information containing drawer information for identifying a drawer of the check. The risk-level determining unit acquires a transaction history associated with a check in the name of the drawer based on the drawer information read by the reading unit, and determines a risk level of the check based on a comparison result between the acquired transaction history and the check information read by the reading unit. The check processing unit processes the check based on a processing content corresponding to the risk level determined by the risk-level determining unit.
