  • Publication number: 20190148070
    Abstract: In an exemplary embodiment, a multilayer ceramic capacitor has, at two opposing respective end parts of a capacitor body 11 of roughly rectangular solid shape, external electrodes 12 that each have a conductive resin layer F3 inside. Each of the external electrodes 12 continuously has an end face part 12a corresponding to one face, and a wraparound part 12b corresponding to four faces surrounding the one face, of the capacitor body 11. Also, the end face part 12a of each of the external electrodes 12 has a bulging part 12a1 on the outer face of the end face part 12a. An electronic component using the multilayer ceramic capacitor can maximally prevent the Manhattan phenomenon that may otherwise occur when the electronic component is mounted on a circuit board, even though its external electrodes have the conductive resin layer inside.

    Abstract: When a work W rotates counterclockwise about an axis Ow and is subjected to infeed grinding by a regulating wheel (1) which rotates clockwise about an axis O1 and a grinding wheel (2) which rotates clockwise about an axis O2, a load F acting on a blade (4), a load acting on the work W supported by the blade (4), and a load operating position y in the blade (4) at any given time are measured by a controller (20) based on the outputs of a first stress sensor S1 and a second stress sensor S2 and according to the correlation information stored in a storage device. If the component of a specified frequency extracted by performing frequency analysis of the time series of the load exceeds a threshold value, then designation processing is carried out to reduce the component of the designated frequency to the threshold value or less.
