  • Patent number: 9522429
    Abstract: A workpiece machining apparatus including a headstock to which a workpiece having a through-hole extending in a Z-axis direction is attached; a tool rest which is movable in the Z-axis direction and in an X-axis direction; and a rotary tool unit which is attached to the tool rest, is provided. The headstock has a support member which is movable in the Z-axis direction and which has a spindle side contact portion in an end portion in the Z-axis direction. The rotary tool unit has a tool body having a tool side contact portion with which the spindle side contact portion can come into contact in the Z-axis direction, and a rotatable tool which protrudes from the tool body. The rotating tool machines the workpiece by moving the tool body in the Z-axis direction in a state where the spindle side contact portion and the tool side contact portion are brought into contact with each other.

  • Patent number: 9424557
    Abstract: A communication unit connects an e-mail data transfer protocol to transfer e-mail data item via near-field wireless communications with an external device. A retrieval unit retrieves the e-mail data item transferred from the external device when the protocol is connected. A storage unit stores the retrieved e-mail data item. A control unit causes the external device to transfer the e-mail data item in each indication unit of the indication device thereby to cause the storage unit to store the retrieved e-mail data item, when the protocol is connected, and even when a user does not implement a browsing operation of an e-mail list. The control unit further causes an indication device to indicate the e-mail list of the stored e-mail data item when the user implements the browsing operation.
