  • Patent number: 10256046
    Abstract: A solid electrolytic capacitor includes a capacitor element, an anode terminal, a cathode terminal, and a sealing resin covering the capacitor element. The anode terminal includes a support portion for supporting the capacitor element, and an anode standing portion formed upright relative to the support portion. The capacitor element includes an anode wire projecting from a porous sintered body. The anode wire is placed on the upper end face of the anode standing portion. The anode wire and the anode standing portion have parts that are exposed from the sealing resin and covered by an electrically conductive anode terminal covering layer for ensuring electrical connection between the anode wire and the anode terminal.

  • Patent number: 10010985
    Abstract: When plate-shaped components are inserted in the correct order and orientation into component insertion grooves of a component assembly jig, the component insertion grooves are blocked by the plate-shaped components, and the blowing of compressed air is stopped. When the blowing of compressed air from the component insertion grooves is stopped, the pressure in a compressed-air path increases, and an alignment-complete lamp is illuminated. Using the component assembly jig enables an assembly operation for overlapping the plurality of plate-shaped components in the correct order and orientation, without excess or deficiency, to be efficiently performed without error.

  • Patent number: 9583274
    Abstract: Provided is a method of manufacturing a solid electrolytic capacitor that suppresses spreading up of a solution. The method includes forming a porous sintered body made of a valve metal and having an anode wire sticking out therefrom; forming an insulating layer made of a fluorine resin, so as to surround the anode wire; and forming a dielectric layer on the porous sintered body; forming a solid electrolyte layer on the dielectric layer, after forming the insulating layer. The process of forming the insulating layer includes melting granular particles made of a fluorine resin.
