  • Patent number: 9048027
    Abstract: A fluid dispersion obtained by mixing oxide particles and water is sprayed to a raw aluminum foil from a direction opposite to a travelling direction of the raw aluminum foil while the raw aluminum foil is allowed to travel. In this way, a roll-pressed mark of the raw aluminum foil is eliminated, and thus aluminum foil for aluminum electrolytic capacitor electrode is produced. Pyramidal-shaped recesses each having an acute angle tip are present all over a surface of the aluminum foil.

  • Patent number: 7813248
    Abstract: When a data recording process fails to normally complete on an information recording medium, for example, because of a power interruption, a record controlling apparatus resumes recording immediately when power is turned back on, while protecting data that was recorded prior to the power interruption. The record controlling apparatus acquires, from a file system, a list of files that underwent a simple-salvage process, generates a tentative file name unfound in the list, and then generates a file with that tentative file name having, as the content thereof, data recorded in an area indicated by a new allocation area allocation descriptor contained in backup information in a backup memory. The file system that is updated with the generated file is recorded onto an optical disk as the information recording medium. The backup information is then deleted from the backup memory. The record controlling apparatus finds applications in video cameras, video recorders, etc.

  • Patent number: 6305599
    Abstract: A reusable assembled box and a method of transport thereof are provided, in that the box has a base with greater strength, and is capable of disassembled into compact pieces facilitating sending back thereof, thus reducing a transport cost and enabling reuse of the box in higher frequency. The box comprises a first member, a second member, and coupling members. The first member is in a substantially rectangular shape, comprises a base and a pair of opposing side walls folded up from the base. The second member is in a substantially rectangular shape and comprises a base, overlain on the base of the first member, in a shape substantially identical to that of the first member, and a pair of side walls adjacent to the walls of the first member. The coupling members detachably couples upper end corners of adjacent side walls of the first and second members assembled into a box by overlaying the bases of the first and second members.

  • Patent number: 5995470
    Abstract: An apparatus for editing an input information signal is capable of preventing breaks in sound even if the length of a cut is edited as extremely short. In the editing apparatus, the input digital information signal is temporarily stored in a recording buffer means. Further, the digital information signal is read at a speed faster than its write speed and recorded on a recording medium. The digital information signal read from the recording medium is written into a reproducing buffer means. Thereafter, the digital information signal is read from the reproducing buffer means at a speed slower than its write speed, after which it is restored to an analog information signal. A control means for controlling recording and reproduction controls whether an information signal should be recorded in an auxiliary area according to the presence or absence of a splice recording, and monitors whether a point to be edited has been changed to a length causing a break in sound due to editing.

  • Patent number: 5712737
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for automatically editing audio signals by determining an editing section on a recording medium having the signals recorded thereon. A first editing point is searched for on the recording medium, and the location of that point is stored in a memory. A second editing point is searched for on the recording medium. The location of the first editing point is compared with that of the second editing point. One of the two locations is set as an in-point and the other location as an out-point in accordance with the result of the comparison. The editing section determined by the in- and out-points is displayed on a screen.

  • Patent number: 4788602
    Abstract: A rotary head type recording and/or reproducing apparatus is so arranged as to be able to record on and/or reproduce from a recording track on a recording medium a time code which is not synchronized with the revolution of a rotary head, whereby even when the revolution period of the rotary head is special, the edition of the recording medium can be made with high accuracy and a track exclusively required by the time code becomes unnecessary. Also, a surplus calculating circuit for calculating a surplus when a number is divided by a divisor is disclosed, in which the surplus can be obtained only by the addition without carrying out the division in practice. Accordingly, time necessary for such calculation can be reduced and the scale of circuit arrangement can be miniaturized.
