  • Publication number: 20210221624
    Abstract: The present invention more suitably adjusts a pressure at a tip of a shaft in an actuator configured to generate a negative pressure at the tip of the shaft, to pick up a workpiece with the shaft. A negative pressure-generating structure to be applied to the actuator includes an insertion hole into which the shaft is inserted in a state where a space is formed between the shaft and a wall surface of the insertion hole, an inner space formed inside the negative pressure-generating structure, which communicates with a hollow part of the shaft through a communication hole formed in the shaft, and an air passage connected to the inner space, the air passage being a passage of air when air in the inner space is sucked to generate the negative pressure at the tip of the shaft.

  • Patent number: 10535454
    Abstract: Provided is a compressed powder core that can suppress a decrease in the inductance even when a high magnetic field (of greater than or equal to 40 kA/m) is applied to the compressed powder core while suppressing an iron loss and a decrease in the strength of the compressed powder core. The compressed powder core 1A has soft magnetic particles 11A and aluminum nitride layers 12A formed on the surface layers of the respective soft magnetic particles 11A. The compressed powder core 1A has a ratio of the first differential relative permeability ??L to the second differential relative permeability ??H satisfying a relationship of ??L/??H?6, and has a magnetic flux density of greater than or equal to 1.4 T when a magnetic field of 60 kA/m is applied. The soft magnetic particles of the compressed powder core 1A contain Si in the range of 1.0 to 3.

  • Patent number: 10497500
    Abstract: A powder magnetic core having excellent specific resistance or strength. The powder magnetic core has soft magnetic particles, first coating layers that coat the surfaces of the soft magnetic particles and include aluminum nitride, and second coating layers that coat at least a part of the surfaces of the first coating layers and include a low-melting-point glass having a softening point lower than an annealing temperature for the soft magnetic particles. The first coating layers including aluminum nitride are excellent in the wettability to the low-melting-point glass which constitutes the second coating layers and suppress diffusion of constitutional elements between the soft magnetic particles and the low-melting-point glass of the second coating layers. The powder magnetic core can stably exhibit a higher specific resistance and higher strength than the prior art owing to such a synergistic action of the first coating layers and second coating layers.

  • Patent number: 10131164
    Abstract: A printer includes: a first conveyor configured to convey a recording medium during image formation by an image former at a first conveyance speed based on a print condition of the image formation by the image former; a second conveyor configured to convey the recording medium at a second conveyance speed higher than the first conveyance speed; and a third conveyor arranged between the first conveyor and the second conveyor on a conveyance route. The third conveyor is configured to start acceleration of the recording medium after a recording region trailing end of the recording medium passes the image former and accelerate the recording medium such that a speed of the recording medium increases to the second conveyance speed not later than a time point when a leading edge of the recording medium reaches the second conveyor.
