  • Publication number: 20210067637
    Abstract: An operation setting selection apparatus includes, a physical property obtainer which obtains physical property information of a recording medium on which an image is formed; and a hardware processor. The hardware processor obtains from first information, in which operation failure information regarding contents of operation failure which occurs when an image forming operation is performed is associated to the physical property information of the recording medium used when the operation failure occurs and the operation setting regarding the image forming, the operation setting and the operation failure information associated to the physical property information obtained by the physical property obtainer. The hardware processor performs operation regarding selection of the operation setting regarding the image forming operation on the recording medium based on the physical property information, the operation setting and the operation failure information which are obtained.

  • Patent number: 9962871
    Abstract: An insert molding method includes: integrally molding a thermoplastic resin with an insert component, by setting the insert component, which is a metal conductor, in a mold; clamping the mold; and injection-filling the thermoplastic resin in a cavity. The insert component is made of copper or a copper alloy. Prior to injection molding, a thin film layer mainly made of a chlorosulfonated polyethylene is formed on a surface of a portion of the insert component to be covered with the thermoplastic resin, and the thin film layer is crosslinked in the mold during injection molding.

  • Patent number: 5645474
    Abstract: A retaining device retains a workpiece to allow the workpiece to slide against a polishing pad located on a polishing board opposed to the retaining device. The retaining device includes a plate including a permeable portion and a seal portion having a lower permeability and provided around an outer periphery of the permeable portion. By absorbing air toward a first surface of the permeable portion, the workpiece is attached and attracted to a second surface of the permeable portion opposite to the first surface. The retaining device further includes a retainer ring provided on an outer peripheral portion of the plate for preventing an outer edge of the workpiece from being overhung by polishing; and a backup ring located between the plate and the retainer ring for putting the retainer ring into pressure contact with the polishing pad. Since the workpiece can be attached and attracted to or released from the plate by a simple operation, the time required for retaining the plate is shortened.
