  • Publication number: 20090251668
    Abstract: The invention relates to a scanning image projector that facilitates making the whole optical system compact while making it easy to control an image being projected. The scanning image projector comprises a light source unit that gives out a light beam modulated on the basis of image information, a deflector that reflects the light beam for deflecting and scanning it in a two-dimensional direction, and a projecting optical system that projects a light beam reflected by the deflector toward a projection direction to form a two-dimensional image. The projecting optical system 6 comprises a plurality of reflecting surfaces 12, 13 tilted with respect to a chief ray of a light beam leading to the center of the projected image. At least one of the plurality of reflecting surfaces 13, 14 is a curved reflecting surface of concave shape at a position where the chief ray 21 of a light beam leading to the center of the projected image goes by.

  • Patent number: 7370785
    Abstract: A wire bonding apparatus and method involving a computer 41 that has a height position counter 44 that produces height position signals for a capillary 5 by processing signals from a position sensor 29 that detects the position of the bonding arm 20 in the vertical direction. This computer 41 includes a memory 60, which stores the detected position of the capillary 5 at the time that secondary bonding is performed on a bump that is formed in a normal manner on the second conductor, and a comparator circuit 61, which outputs a “bump not-adhered” signal in cases where the output value of the height position counter 44 is outside the permissible error range of the detected position that is stored in the memory 60.

  • Patent number: 7293628
    Abstract: A cylindrical shell main body constituting a muffler main body is formed of two layers of an inner shell and an outer shell and has a cylindrical shape with a cross section that is not a perfect circle but is defined by alternated small arc portions and large arc portions similarly to an oval, or the like. The outer shell of the shell main body has, in each of their small arc portions, four radially projecting beads continuously extending in a circumferential direction along the small arc portions and being a predetermined distance apart from one another in an axial direction, thereby allowing an upper and lower gaps between the inner shell and the outer shell in the respective large arc portions of the shell main body to communicate with each other through passages formed by the beads.
