  • Publication number: 20210109038
    Abstract: Provided is a quality inspection method in which an inner state of a three-dimensional laminated molding can be quickly and easily inspected without destroying the three-dimensional laminated molding. To this end, the quality inspection method uses an X-ray Talbot imaging system 1 which creates a reconstructed image of an inspection object on the basis of a moire image obtained by using an X-ray detector to read X-rays which, after being radiated from an X-ray source 11a, have passed through: a plurality of grids in which a plurality of slits S are arranged in a direction perpendicular to the radiation axis direction of the X-ray; and an inspection object H placed on a subject table 13. The inspection object H is a three-dimensional laminated molding formed into a three-dimensional shape by laminating multiple layers of constituent materials.

  • Patent number: 10965150
    Abstract: The present teaching provides a power supply system capable of appropriately performing replacement or repairing of a component of a module where a problem occurs without stopping the entire operation, in a case where the problem occurs in of the module in a plurality of modules. The power supply system includes a plurality of sweep modules, a problem detector, an indicator, and a controller. Each sweep module includes a battery module and an electric power circuit module. The problem detector detects a problem for each sweep module. The indicator indicates a sweep module in which a problem is detected. In a case where a problem is detected in the sweep module (S4: YES), the controller causes the indicator to indicate a failure sweep module in which the problem is detected (S5). The controller disconnects the failure sweep module from a main line, and continues sweep control (S6 through S8).
