  • Publication number: 20220402064
    Abstract: A joining device includes: a pair of pressing members disposed to face each other to sandwich joining target members from both sides in a stacking direction of the joining target members and configured to press the joining target members; and power supply members disposed on one or both sides in the stacking direction of the joining target members to sandwich a pressing target portion of the joining target members by the pressing members and configured to come into contact with and supply power to the joining target members. The power supply members are provided at positions not overlapping the pressing members in the stacking direction of the joining target members, and the pressing members press the joining target members while the power supply members supply power to the joining target members, thereby generating resistance heat in the pressing target portion and joining the joining target members.

  • Publication number: 20220396153
    Abstract: The disclosed vehicle braking device controls a hydraulic brake system (2) and a regeneration brake system (3) mounted on a vehicle (1) in accordance with an acceleration value and a brake value, and includes a first divider (11), a second divider (12), and a controller (13). The first divider (11) divides a driver demand torque set according to the accelerator value into a target coast torque and a remaining torque. The second divider (12) divides a sum of a deceleration torque set according to the brake value and the target coast torque divided by the first divider (11) into a hydraulic-brake demand torque and a regeneration-brake demand torque. The controller (13) controls the hydraulic brake system (2), using the hydraulic-brake demand torque, and controls the regeneration brake system (3), using a total regeneration brake torque calculated from the remaining torque and the regeneration-brake demand torque.

  • Patent number: 11474466
    Abstract: In an image forming apparatus, a cleaning blade, disposed on a downstream side of a transfer roller in a rotation direction of an image carrier, removes toner remaining on the image carrier after transfer of a toner image to an intermediate transfer member. After completion of an image forming operation, a controller causes the transfer roller to separate from the intermediate transfer member, cause the developing device to form on the image carrier a toner band to be supplied to the cleaning blade, and cause rotation of the image carrier to stop such that at least a part of the toner band formed on the image carrier stops within a section from a first position facing the transfer roller to a second position facing the cleaning blade in the rotation direction.

  • Patent number: 11446520
    Abstract: Through the present invention, three-dimensional coordinates of a tracking object moving in an irradiation object can be calculated from fluoroscopic X-ray images captured and acquired from various angles in a single fluoroscopic X-ray device mounted to a radiation therapy apparatus. The three-dimensional coordinates of the tracking object are calculated on a straight tracking object presence line connecting an X-ray generating device for fluoroscopy and the position in an X-ray plane detector of the tracking object on the fluoroscopic X-ray image acquired by the X-ray generating device for fluoroscopy and the X-ray plane detector, and using line segment information included in a movement region of the tracking object set in advance.

  • Patent number: 11439848
    Abstract: A template matching is performed on two fluoroscopic images by using a template image prepared in advance and a position corresponding to a high matching score is listed as a candidate for the position of a marker 29. From two lists of the candidates of the position of the marker 29, the lengths of common vertical lines for all combinations are calculated. Then, the position of the marker 29 is detected based on the matching score and the common vertical line. Then, based on the detected position of the marker 29, an amount of a proton beam to be irradiated to a target is controlled. Therefore, a tracking target can be accurately detected even when the conditions for X-ray fluoroscopy is severe, e.g., a thick object.
