  • Patent number: 11986853
    Abstract: A coating liquid containing metal as a metal-containing coating liquid is supplied to a surface to be processed of a substrate by a coating processing unit, whereby a metal-containing coating film is formed on the surface to be processed. The substrate on which the metal-containing coating film has been formed is transported to a metal removal unit by a transport mechanism. A removal liquid for dissolving the metal is supplied to a peripheral portion of the substrate by the metal removal unit such that the metal-containing coating film remains in a region except for the peripheral portion of the surface to be processed of the substrate.

  • Patent number: 11975406
    Abstract: A moving mechanism relatively moves a machining head emitting a laser beam, with respect to a sheet metal along a surface of the sheet metal. A beam vibrating mechanism vibrates the laser beam for irradiation on the sheet metal, while the machining head is relatively moved by the moving mechanism. A machining condition setting section sets pattern selection information to select a vibration pattern of the laser beam by the beam vibrating mechanism, and a parameter to determine a vibrating way in the vibration pattern, in accordance with machining conditions specified for each machining command to machine the sheet metal in a machining program generated to machine the sheet metal, and including a machining velocity of the sheet metal associated with relative movement of the machining head by the moving mechanism.
